Remember how last weekend G&G couldn't come down due to bad weather? They sent their Christmas gifts to us through Santa's little helpers (an aunt and uncle who drove down on Friday to visit their daughter) Thank You. The kids (Owen) couldn't stand the thought of gifts in the house and NOT opening at least one, so we agreed if they were good all day then they could select one.
(After shopping we also went to church ....so the opening took place about 6:45....they were good all day...oh, the power of a present!)
and SCORE! Skylander Giants!? He was very excited....thank you G&G!
I choose what I thought looked like a calendar my mom usually gets me....and yes, I was right! Love this one...it has great "Girl comments" and it totally made me smile! Plus, the little extra cash envelope that was attached was a surprise too.
YEA!!! To a fun family day....one that we didn't really have to force. ;-) Just a little carrot of a present being dangled isn't too bad right? What ever works.....
Today is my last day of Sunday School then 2 weeks off during Christmas break. We are having a short lesson and then a Christmas party. I'm not sure how many kids will be there and how loud it will get but I kind of hope the hour flies by....a few of these boys are full of energy..pray for me. ;-)
Have a great Sunday!
