This is one of my favorite times of year! I love decorating the house and the tree and finding the perfect gifts! Although, this year Jason kept saying that our tree was a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree since I did not put all the glass ornaments on it. Well duh we have 2 young kids that were infatuated with the tree!
I knew that this year was going to be just as awesome as last year because Blase totally got and understood the whole Santa thing! He loved to watch the movies and loved Skippy our house elf. This year he told Santa that he wanted Rio (also known as the Pelican Movie).
I think I was just as excited as him the night of Christmas Eve. We went to my Grandmothers for Christmas Eve dinner and then opened some gifts then headed home to get ready. He knew that we put the last puff on Santa's beard and we said goodbye to Skippy till next year. Off to bed they went! Jason had to work Christmas Eve night so once they were asleep for a while Mommy got to work and got everything down!
The Tree with all the Presents!
The morning was just as good as I had hoped for! Jason did not have to work till 2pm so he was here for the activities! Blase was shocked when he saw all the gifts! He was a little upset that Skippy was gone but that was short lived as soon as he started tearing into his presents (and Grace's)

In shock of the Pelican Movie!
Poor Jason had to work Christmas Day and my Mom got sick with the stomach flu so we ended up changing Christmas to my house last minute! I have to admit it did not really feel like we had a Christmas this year. Jason was busy at work, my mom was sick, everyone was tired from working and rushing! Ugh oh well I guess some years that happens. Blase loved that he got another present from Big T and Uncle Rick and then everyone was willing to play with his new game and Grace just loved hanging out with Bobo.

Since my mom was sick on Christmas her and my Dad came over on that following Thursday for dinner and to give Blase and Grace their presents. It was seriously the never-ending Christmas!
