It was truly a Merry Christmas

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day, not too stressful :) Ours was actually pretty wonderful, do I sound surprised? I guess I expect something to go wrong at some point, I'm a bit of a pessimist. So I thought I would share some Pics with you of my little reindeers and a little Christmas story. Dallas posing in his reindeer antlers
and Levi pulling his off and making a funny face. he actually enjoyed wearing the antlers more than his brother but did not want them on when the camera was about. Dallas was the complete opposite!
Santa has been... I tried to get a nice photo of the tree where you can see the lights, but they came out all blurry, so you will just have to imagine it.
So, it was the night before Christmas, at around 11pm, after Santa had been and the house was tidied that we decided that it was time for bed as we had a BIG day ahead of us, and then, as we were heading to the bedroom, Glenn remembered something we forgot...
THIS! It was in the garage in a flat box! so a reasonable 11pm bed time was extended until 1:30am, but it was all worth it, it was the first thing the boys ran to when they got up, and they got magnetic drawing boards from their aunt so they stand at their desk and draw on them, they are budding artists, lol.
Here is Dallas in his pj's ripping into his presents. He was really into the unwrapping presents thing, Levis was more interested in following him around and playing with the toys. Every time he opened a present he would say 'wow' (a new-ish word for him), too cute! He was a present opening machine, and if you left one unopened near him he would attack it :) luckily no one really minded the help too much!
Here is a rare one of Levi getting his hands on a present before his brother.
and the two of them opening one together! They really enjoyed the day, and were very well behaved considering it was a LONG day, and they did not have much of a nap, maybe half an hour, but I guess they wanted to play with all of their new toys :) When we were kids we were only allowed to open one present in the morning and had to wait until we came home from my grandparents house, we went there for lunch (nearly 2 hours away), to open the rest, it was torture!
I hope you all enjoyed you day as much as we did, and you all have a safe and happy New Year! Do you have any plans, we will be having a quiet one at home. I have always found new Years to be a bit disappointing and now we have the kids we don't bother doing anything. The next day is Glenn's nephews birthday (he was the first baby of the new year at out local hospital, even though he was born in he back of the car half way there,lol) so we will be heading around there at some point.
Congrats for making it to the end of my rants, I will definitely have a card for you by the end of the week, if not before, and a little surprise! Hope to see you then!!
