It was Christmas Eve and everyone was finally sleeping. :-) Here is the site before I slipped upstairs to bed.

I absolutely love christmas morning...the excitement and awe in the little ones faces. Raina was standing there rubbing her eyes, and said matter of factly "I knew it!! I knew it!!" and yes she had said Santa told her he was bringing a dollhouse. The Jeep was a huge hit too..normally we do not have too huge gifts laid out from Santa but this year Grandma decided to spoil her a little and sent the dollhouse, and i thought it would have a much bigger impact put together than wrapped in a box that didnt even sport a colored photo. :-) I was right... ;-)

The biggger kids were pretty happy too, a check payable to her, Kalynn was thrilled with the cash gift along with her camcorder. Nicholas had sold his PS2 system and games to save up for a PS3, however, we surprised him was a great christmas this year. We have been blessed....many thanks for all of these blessings.

We made it to see Santa!! and we took Hailey and Lucas with us! Raina is still unsure how to react to him, and chose not to sit on his lap, but she was excited he was there and told him, "i told you about that dollhouse, remember?" and Santa replied "how could i forget" (with a glance toward me and a smile back)"You have been such a good girl and I will definitely see about bringing that dollhouse." I am so excited about Christmas!! I think its more for me than it is her sometimes! :-)
