Here is a photo of the tree after Santa came. We got wise these last few years--the kids buy one gift for one sibling so they get one GOOD gift, we wrap all their presents in one box or bag so they have 3 presents Christmas morning--with 7 kids that's a way better way to go! So far it seems everyone liked their presents. They played awhile then we ate breakfast. Tim and the older boys shoveled for awhile--we got 2 feet of snow that morning--we weren't sure we'd make it to my parents. We left late, but once the snow stopped we made a break for it. We enjoyed some delicious waffles and stuff there. Of course we were spoiled by Granny and Grandpa and Charl and Katie (they had our family). Then we went to Tim's parents for a yummy dinner and we opened more presents--spoiled! The kids had fun with their Espinoza cousins and we enjoyed watching WALL-E on Tim's parents' new Blu-Ray player. Tim had never seen WALL-E and enjoyed it. Now he knows why I wanted a WALL-E toy from the kids for Christmas--they gave me the book HOST instead which I am sure I'll enjoy! It was a great day! We were glad to make it home safe and sound since the roads were icy. We have soooo many blessings just in our extended family alone! The presents are just fun but not the best part of the day!
