Our Christmas morning came a day late here. The older kids were at their father's for the 25th, but we did our christmas a day late and had a great time.
One of our traditions is that we don't bring out our actual tree until after the kids go to bed christmas eve. We get a "decoy tree" that is either small, or fake, or as in this year made out of rosemary.
This year we added a new tradition of making a christmas fairy tree topper for the top of the tree. I got a Cinderella doll fairly cheap and made a dress for her out of tissue paper.
The kids loved their presents, which included a Wii system and some games, as well as the usual movies and assorted toys. The squishmiester got a new train set, and Littles got an awesome Bumblebee that transforms all the way (and let me say that I think my hubby geeked out more than I did on that one- I squeed more over the optimus with the real voice- nothing better than hearing optimus say "autobots transform and roll out"!). And I found a pretty awesome game for my daughter called Create. It's a wii game that lets you set up animated scenes that you make yourself, kind of like a starter on how to set up animated graphics. So far Epic Mickey with it's disney twist and Fable like good/evil interplay is holding sway with my Monkeyman.
Oh and I got my new favorite thing in the entire world- my kindle, but more on that later. hope everyone else had as good a holiday!
