Merry Christmas!!!!

YIKES I am so far behind! Things have been hectic, happy, sad, up downs and all arounds but I can finally write about Christmas!! YAHOO! Christmas Eve we go with Laynes family to his Aunt Kays house, we all get together for a big yummy dinner, exchange presents, chat, play games its always a great time!! When we got home the elves had left their Christmas Jammies and cougar pillow pets. The kids were so excited!! We made reindeer food and they spread it outside so the reindeer could see to stop and then we put out cookies and milk for santa. Then Layne read the boys Twas the Night Before Christmas and the kids headed to bed.  Christmas morning we woke up (the boys woke up a few times 3am, 5 am then finally at 7 we let them get up to open their presents.) Its so much fun to watch them get so stinking excited! With every present their eyes light up and their reactions are priceless. They were very blessed this year!! Layne and I then open our presents and boy was I surprised.. Layne had gotten me a new camera. Mine was lost the day of Kaels angelversarry this year. I had it in a bag in my car after going to the cemetery and it dropped out of the van. I was devasated we went back to get it the bag was there but the camera was gone.. thank goodness most of my pics were already saved on the computer!! I was so happy to get a new camera and had no idea I was getting it. I am a picture freak so it meant alot! Both Layne and I were also very blessed! After presents were done we all got ready to go to Laynes moms house for breakfast. This one is a bit smaller than the night before. My mom and dad come and one of Laynes sisters and her hubby and 1 cousin comes to this its really fun and so much less chaotic. The food once again is delicious and then my kids got spoiled some more with all of the presents there for them. We stayed for a few hours, then headed out to visit Kael at his grave. It was so warm that day that we stayed for a while. It was nice to be able to visit boy how I miss that little guy! When we left there we headed home for a nap, and then lots of family came over through out the rest of the day to visit and see what we had all gotten. Once it had died down we read the letters that had been written to Kael. It was such a special part of the day! I cant wait to make it a yearly tradition. More about it later :) . It was a very blessed Christmas. I spent lots of the day thinking of the true meaning of Christmas and how I need to be a better person. 2012 will bring with it lots of new opportunities. I hope your Christmas was blessed as well!
