Merry Christmas!!

We had a wonderful Christmas! I don't think it could have been better! We went to my cousins' home in Lake City for Christmas Eve & then my mom & dad came home with us. We put out milk & cookies for Santa & reindeer food for the reindeer. We left Santa's special key out for him & said goodbye until next year to our scout elf Zack & then headed to bed. It was a bit of a chore getting Ryley to go to sleep because he was soooooooooo excited!!! The boys got us up I guess around 8. They both got everything on their lists from Santa & mom & dad. Justin appreciated having my dad here to help him wrestle all of the toys out of their packages & remove hundreds of tiny screws to install batteries! LOL!! I have had bronchitis for what seems like 6 months but has actually been about 1 month so after all the gifts were opened I took a little nap!! Which was great!! At lunch my mom made gumbo. Delicious!! Later on in the afternoon we went to Justin's parents' house to exchange gifts with them. All in all a great day!!
