I think I was the one who had the most trouble sleeping on Christmas morning, but that kind of comes with the territory when I'm pregnant. I finally allowed myself to get out of bed at 6:15 but no one else was up so I snuck into the kids' bathroom and curled my hair to pass the time. Finally around 7 I had made enough noise to wake everyone up LOL. The kids were so excited to see all the new presents, and most importantly of all, Santa's presents. We had a very nice morning of gift-opening and listening to Christmas music. After we had wrapped up the chaos at our house we got dressed and headed over to Nana and Papa's house for more gift-opening and Christmas dinner. We had ham, crab, Stollen, and lots of other good things. It was a wonderful Christmas - the kids got the presents they asked for from Santa (Hero - a Furberry, Allegra - a Swim to Me Rescue Puppy, Ian - a Leapster video game unit, and Colin - a Handy Manny tool set) plus ice skates for the girls, a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse race track set for Ian, a watch for James, and diamond earrings for me, and a Nintendo Wii for the entire family. It was a blessed Christmas, physically and spiritually.
