Christmas Day

12:14 a.m. I finally fall asleep
4:30 a.m.  Kade wakes up and then wakes up Mickey and me
5:15 a.m.  I join the rest of the family downstairs and see that Santa did make an appearance even though there had been many threats made in the last few days of him not coming

We opened presents from Santa and checked out what was in our stockings.  We lounged around for a while before eating some rather unhealthy breakfast (cinnamon rolls and chocolate and other candies).  Then some of us got cleaned up before going to church.  (While there I was called as the 2nd counselor in the Primary.)  It was a nice service, lots of music along with a narrative.

We, the kids and I, came home and got back in our jammies.  Later, when Mickey was home, we opened the rest of our presents.  The kids just hate love that we get them clothes but this year they really did like them.  Then it was time to open the hand-made presents from me.  I counted to 3 and the kids ripped into their tissue paper stuffed bags to find....
Three More Pillows
...three more shag pillows.  (Actually I made a fourth.  I gave it to my friend and neighbor.)  Now they all have one of their own and will hopefully leave my brown one alone.

After watching some really not-so-great Christmas movies we had dinner.  Mickey helped with the preparation since I wasn't feeling well.  We had a turkey breast, ambrosia waldorf salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, and leftover biscuits from yesterday.  I totally forgot to make a veggie and to bake the crescent rolls I bought.  Oh well.  The turkey was so good.  I roasted it in a bag, breast down.  It was so moist.  I also made a cake.  It was supposed to be a birthday cake for Jesus but we never got around to it.  Maybe we'll eat it tomorrow.
