it is december 24th dinner has been served, and the home made lasagna was delicious (my mom even did one with tofu so i could eat also!) we went to church (she didnt even cry this time) and now it is time to relax, listen to some christmas songs, and go to bed.
at 10:00 its time to go to bed, the earlier you go to bed the sooner santa will come (laugh it up, but yes he still comes)!!
the anticipation for what is to come is overwhelming. sleep is IMPOSSIBLE. after 2 hours of looking at the ceiling thinking about nothing and everything at the same time, my eyes get heavy and i fall alseep.
3am- TIME TO WAKE UP!!!! my sister and i sneak down stairs to see if santa has come..yup. he has. it is now time to quietly look around (we cant touch anything,that gets us in trouble). after walking around for a couple minutes we gather up blankets and pillows and fall asleep next to the tree.
6am- time to wake up and go see if my mom and grandma (the grandparents come down and stay with us) will come downstairs.
6:30-mom and grandma venture downstairs with tired eyes.
7-perfect time to get everyone else up!!
7:15- make coffee for old people and sit quiet and still, so we dont get into trouble.
7:30 video camera is out and we are ready for the festivities to begin!
10am- presents are opened, dad is cranky, grandparents are tired. time to sneak upstairs and go back to bed for the afternoon.
*also note that people dont put presents under the tree until december 23rd because i am known for snooping*
i think i am going to be worse than my kids..i will be waking them up...tee hee.
whats your christmas like?
