Predictably, Christmas morning at our house was filled with highs and lows.
High: Santa brought a Zhu Zhu pet.
Low: The Zhu Zhu pet was the wrong color.
High: Santa brought Transformers underpants.
Low: The underpants were two sizes too small.
High: Everyone found bags of gummy bears in their stockings.
Low: Someone ate all of his in one sitting and threw them up an hour later.
High: The first present that Kellen opened was a football.
Low: Always the good sport, Cortlen expressed his enthusiasm for his brother's good fortune by crawling under the sofa and crying for ten minutes.
High: Tim's parents gave the boys baseball helmets.
Low: Immediately after putting the helmets on their heads, Cortlen and Kellen head butted each other (on purpose). Cortlen spent the rest of the day complaining of a headache.
High: Tim's parents gave Camber a bottle of sparkly nail polish.
Low: She accidentally spilled it on the kitchen table.
High: I put the kids to bed at 6:30pm that night.
Low: They got up at 5:30am the next morning.
How was YOUR holiday?!
