Christmas at home with Dahlia.....I need a nap :)

Have you ever noticed that we spend weeks and weeks buying the perfect presents. Then on Christmas Morning it takes only a matter of about 45 minutes to totally decimate the perfect wrapping paper to reach the goodies inside? Imagine my house with four kids!! Eeep! They were eyeing them from six am but they were nice enough to let me sleep until about eight am. After that the noise in the hallway was conspiciously made up. From the coughing fits, to the oops I dropped something said really loudly. I was beginning to think they were throwing bricks at my bedroom door...Yeah I knew it was time to wake up (laugh).
I had the foresight to set the coffee maker from the night before. (All hail the elixir of life...caffiene!!) To deal with what was coming I had to infuse with blessed coffee. They attacked each gift like predators in the wild taking down their prey. I watched them destroy all my hard work wrapping each gift with upmost care but there was a big smile on my face. Why? because thier squeals of pleasure and hearing "Mom this is the best Christmas ever!" was gift enough for me to do it again and again for years to come until they are adults.. Even then I just might try to recreate Chirstmas morning for my babies. They might be the children of the corn, but bless them I love all down to every last strand of hair on their heads :)

I have attached a few pics of our morning festivities for you to see. Ok please be fore warned that Dahlia did not get up to put on her face before the pic was taken so..Please be gentle. LOL and do not go screaming into the night...

Merry Christmas my groovy guys and dolls...

I hope each and every one of you had as much fun as I did..if not next year you are welcome to join in our festivities The more the merrier.

Hugs and cheesecake

Santa brought me a new hot pink bathrobe..I instantly thought of you when I got it..LOL..I got an Ipod docking station (do not know if that is the exact name). But it plays my ipod as it charges and cd's as well. An assortment of bath and body works goodies, a diamond circle necklace and yes an appletini drink set with appletini mix and a shaker..My kids bought me a blouse which I could actually wear...It was alot better than last years gift which was a frying pan clock..LOL..

Hi Dahlia, beautiful kids! Sounds like yall had fun. I know the challenges of teens. I was shopping for my 17 year old neice. I always ask her mother cause I have no clue with teenage girls. A frying pan clock???

Dahlia Rose said...

LOL..yes Seriously Yvette..Last year I got a frying pan clock for the kitchen... its a clock shaped like a frying pan and it the middle a picture of sizzling bacon and eggs while the hands of the clock ticks away..I was thinking to myself why did they buy this for me? Do I need to start making more breakfast? Is this a hint? LOL this year was much better. They are sweet. each year they save thier loose change, al their nickles dimes and pennies and then they pool it to buy mom a gift and candy for themselves. They came up with 89 dollars this year when we took it to the coin star machine..I was impressed with their tenacity.
Hugs and Cheesecake
