Our Christmas Day Recap

December 26th and the presents have all been opened, some of the games have been played, and we are back at Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments. We had a wonderful Christmas Day, it was a sweet day full of fun. The kids woke up just after 6am and dug right into their Christmas Stockings. I always wake up when I hear the kids and I love to just lay there and listen to their sweet voices while they are opening their stocking gifts. It is the most sweet way to start the day.
I didn't expect the kids to wake up so early so we had asked Tom and Elaine to come over at 8:30am, we always wait for them to open gifts. So we put in the movie Elf and watched it to pass the time until 8:30. As the credits were rolling at the end of the movie Tom and Elaine drove up. The fun began and presents started to be opened, one at a time.
Once the presents were open I started lunch preparations. I ordered a turkey from Joe Allen's and had bought some prepared side dishes. It was a very easy lunch, I pulled out the china and we had a lovely Turkey dinner.
After lunch Tom treated us all to a movie, we went and saw The Water Horse. We all enjoyed it, it was sadder than I expected, but it was funny too.
Then we played a new game the kids received for Christmas, Clue on DVD. It is similar to the old fashioned Clue that we all grew up on, but with some extra twists and turns. It is also more Politically Correct, as there is no murder, but a theft that you are trying to solve. 2 hours later the game finished, Jack dropped out and fell asleep on the couch, but the rest of us stuck it out and I was the winner! It was a fun game and now that we have played it once, it will be much easier and maybe even a bit quicker the next time we play.
We are so excited that Rob is off from work today also, so we will have another fun family day.
I hope that your Christmas was full of love and smiles.
