Merry Christmas (a few days late!)

We were at my Mom's for Christmas. It rained most of the day, but that was really fine by us since we stayed in our jammies all day! We did shower and dress for Christmas dinner........probably only because my sister and her family were coming over!! :) Katey was beyond excited the night before.......more heightened when we heard Santa's jingle bells right outside the bedroom window!! I explained to her that Santa was probably just doing a "fly over" to make sure she was in Sarasota and not Tampa. She woke up 3-4 times throughout the night and then was up for good at 5! (ugh!) I finally let her drag me out of bed closer to 6 (again, ugh!) and let her tear into her stocking. Fortunately, she has the biggest stocking on earth so there were lots of little goodies in there to open, which took some time. I made her wait until 7 to wake my Mom up to open the other gifts. She got everything she asked Santa for (an animal book and a journal......easy child!) and then (of course) a TON of other stuff. Mom made (yes, made) all of the kiddies blankets which were the hit of the day. Can't believe it's over for another year........Katey has begged to leave the tree up for a while and since I don't have any desire to tackle that project any time soon, I said ok! :)
