For the first time in 8 years Christmas has lacked its magic for me . It makes me sad when this happens. Despite my lack of Christmas magic we had a good Chtirtmas. My kids were spoiled once again and we had fun as a family.
We went out as a family for Christmas Eve to eat we don't go out very often as a family so when the kids asked we gave in.
After dinner we looked st lights and delivered treats to our friends.
When we got home we watched a Christmas movie and opened our Christmas Eve gifts. Normally we get PJ's we strayed from tradition and got slippers. The kids were a little surprised but were happy with their gift.
When it was bed time Madeline wrote a note and left cookies fror Santa.
Benny made a plan to catch Santa. I love that he still believes. We then all went to bed sorta. Dale crashed in the couch after prayers because he was feeling sick. I started playing Santa so I could go to sleep when all the gifts were out I heard noises. I thought it was kids sneaking around but it was just Ben sick in the bathroom.
I was so sad for both Benny and Dale.
We woke up the next morning happy but I felt sick and totally forgot to take pictures. The kids were all happy with what they got and a little surprised.
We got all the kids their own personal media devices something I have always limited the kids to havering. To say least they were shocked. We got Robbie Garrett and Madeline tablets. With homework needing to be done via computer now days we thought it was practical. With Ben we just spoiled him and gave him a hand held playstation and to be practical a little bit he got a few educational games. Mylissa all ready having a lap tip did not need or want a media device. She asked for practical things like perfumes lotions and underwear. Dale and I gave each other little things we wanted.
This is the only picture taken of Dale and I . We all spent the rest of the day being lazy.
