As you can see, Santa came in our house! Hooray! He left lots of goodies for us and the kiddos.
He even helped himself to some milk and cookies because we forgot to leave some out for him. C got the teddy bear and dinosaur he asked for and A got the Barbie and pink dinosaur she asked for! They got some books, a movie and other little things too. C was excited about his DJ car from the movie "Cars," and A was excited about getting her very own jump rope. There's still some learning to be had with that!
It was fun to watch the kids open their presents and see how different they were while opening...A was all about opening everything as fast as she could while stacking everything up in a pile. Reminds me of someone I know at her age...hmmm. C was more about opening each present and playing a bit with the toy before going on to the next one. Different styles to go with their different personalities!
Thanks a bunch, Santa! We had a great time opening your presents!
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
