My mom had sea foods for the joy of her guests (except me because I don't like sea food).
The kids had a lot of fun checking where was Santa on the NORAD website.
When we came home, the kids put their shoes under the tree.
We all stayed up late (secretly hoping the kids will oversleep in the morning ... ) Well, we woke up at 7.00 with the sound of Pierre throwing up. He woke up with a migraine ... Soon after, he was feeling better and we could open the gifts. Those faces make Christmas magical:
Emma couldn't believe she got the Barbie and her walking horse:
We then had lunch at my mom's. My grand'ma came to join the fun. I found these holidays less stressful than last year but it's easy as we went to Germany for the holidays 2007 !!! The kids are very happy with their gifts. I got only one cheesy gift this year. Chuy bought me a Will Ferrell DVD First, you have to know that Chuy IS a Will Ferrell fan (not me ... ) It offered me: "Stranger than fiction"! Please, someone tell me it's not going to be one of these dumb movies: please! please !!!! I also got (from him): a Minnie pajama (when I tell you he doesn't know what to get me and find whatever he can find at the last minute ... ) The only nice gift I got is my Pink CD's (well, I got only three gifts anyway ...) Talking about Chuy, he even wanted to keep shopping on december 24th ... I said NO and I was lucky, he felt tired !!! A Will Ferrell movie: I still can't believe it I offered him the 3 last seasons of Seinfeld (Amazon had a great deal: each DVD were $14.95 !) , a nice black sweater, a CD, a great DVD and my grand'ma offered him a stinky perfume (she does every year )
This year, it's my mom who got the cheesiest gift of all: my brother sent her an apple peeler Honestly, my mom doesn't see herself taking the big thing out of its box to eat a simple apple ... I thought it was one of her gifts but no, it was the only gift she got ... (and it's not even pink ) I don't know if my sister in law entered to the contest: worst gift you ever chose for your mother in law, but if she did, she may win first place !!!
And us, we got this (we are delighted, of course !!! ):
Hope you all had a great day as well !!!!
