After church, we went to my parent's house for the annual chili. As a special Christmas surprise, as soon as we walked in the door, I noticed that Brody smelled less than favorable so I went to change him. OMG, let me tell you.... a blow out, is an understatement. This child pooped his guts out- all the way up his adorable new Christmas onesie and all over his socks! Just thought I would share:) ANYWAY...This year Joe made his very yummy enchiladas as well- WAY GOOD FOOD. We ate and ate and then decided to show the little kids what Santa dropped off. We told Delaney that Santa came while we were at church and left them Christmas jammies. She was SO excited. We changed their clothes and then they each got to open one present. Brody got a remote, because Brody loves remotes and Delaney got this hysterical dog. This thing is so funny. It rolls all over the place while laughing hysterically. It is way annoying, but impossible not to laugh with. After the presents, it was time for White Christmas. Brody slept and Delaney was up and down eating cookies and jumping on Joe. Doesn't matter, we got through it and then it was time to go home.

Chasing the crazy dog!
The kids went right to sleep and Eric and I had to wrap the presents and clean a little before the next day. I think we finished and went to bed at like 2:30am or so. The next morning Delaney slept in and Eric let me sleep while he played with Brody in the playroom. Eric made a fire and he went to get Delaney. I had been waiting for this moment for a while and she delivered. She walked out and saw her new kitchen and baby doll and said, "Oh wow! Mommy wook!" I told her Santa had left her a kitchen at our house while she was sleeping. Now she calls her kitchen, Seenta's house. She was so excited... it was truly priceless. Brody loved his new toy too and Delaney made sure that he saw it and showed him how to play with it. We opened presents and she was equally excited for each one. My family came over and the kids started all over again. And then the big kids came over. We got them each an i-pod touch. We got them considerably less this year and I told them how bad we felt about it. When Kaylie opened hers, she was genuinely excited and when Daylen opened his he said, "Smaller? Whatever, this is all I needed." Ummm... yeah...tear. I was so proud to be their step-mom. Eric's mom and step-dad came over and gave them even more gifts. We ended the day at my parents house where we got to see my grandparents and hang out with the family. It was a good day. I can't help but think about next year when I have 2 little ones running all over the house getting excited about Santa.

Christmas is so exhausting......
Before Delaney went to sleep she said, "Seenta come to Nene's house again?" I told her that he is sleeping and he would come next year... she said okay and went to sleep holding on to a new baby. When she woke up this morning, she couldn't believe "Seentas house" was still here. She was excited all over again. Too cute.
