It's Christmas Eve, and I don't know what I was thinking. I didn't break out my camera at all. So all these photos were taken with Eric's phone. Mine died the week before school got out. So it's either taking the Beast, or using Eric's cell phone.
This was the only picture taken of the festivities. After presents, Chris and Jeremiah were content playing video games. We actually got to sit around a chat a bit while the kids played. My kids were kind of sad, because they got useful things, books and clothes. But we had put a no toy rule on Christmas because they wouldn't keep their rooms and basement clean. This was hard on them. Even with that rule in place, the kids still had a good time hanging out with their cousins. Or rather, playing with their cousins and their toys. Either way, it was a good day.
It was nice to just sit back and chill out. Christopher stayed with Grandma and Grandpa at Aunt Amy's while Eric and I took the youngsters back home for a nap. We ended up meeting at their church at 6:30 for the family Service. We got to hear Alexis play O Holy Night, and Kaylee read the Passage. It was really neat.
Though, on our way home we realized we were hungry, so we hit China's Best Buffet. I know it's crazy, but something about Christmas makes me hungry.
