Christmas Photos as Promised...

This is how Santa left my living room late Christmas Eve... notice the vacuum in the right hand corner? That Santa, he's a tidy guy and likes to clean up after the reindeer. That, or, after the commotion with the firetrucks it plumb slipped my mind... Anywho, here's the tree and presents in all their glory:
And me, trying to be a sport about being awake at 4:30AM to unwrap gifts... No, people, it's not pretty, but I was only slightly lucid at this hour...
Jim, on the other hand, had woken up at 3:30AM and was beggin to wake up the kids for a full hour before I finally caved:

Think Santa managed to stuff enough crap into Allie's stocking this year?

And this is what made it all worth it:

I apologize that my daughter is sans pants. She woke up, went potty, put on a fresh pull up and bolted out of the bathroom to tear open presents... too cute!


  1. All too cute!!!!!!!

  2. Looks like you had a fabby time even if you were woken very early!!!
    All worth while just to see the kids faces...I don't have children but lots of nieces and nephews - they make all the madness worthwhile don't they.
