Quote of the week: As I was sitting in the boy’s closet reorganizing and cleaning, Gussy walks in (wearing one of Alicia’s mini dresses, ha ha) and says, “Sara, I love you.” He then gives me a hug and walks back out. All I could do was smile and say, “I love you too, Gussy.” Awe!!
Cleaned all day yesterday, then went to Alicia’s family Christmas party. Kinda boring with some really weird tasting pina coladas. The only thing that made it taste better was adding frozen coke to it, lol.
Finally got the boys to bed last night at 10 minutes to midnight. We pulled the out presents and got them stacked and ready. The older boys, Casey and Ashley, actually separated their presents from everyone else’s last night so they could get to them quickly. Well, since they already treat me like an older sister, I decided to be the mean/sneaky older sister and put them back in the pile. I mixed them ALL up when I pulled out the hidden presents from my closet, ha ha.
I actually went to sleep around sleep around 2am, but for some reason I was woken up promptly at 7am. I actually needed a HUGE coffee just to focus. Ewan was upset at ‘Santa’ for giving him a blue helmet for his new bike instead of a Lightning McQueen helmet… we have him on camera crying. So sad and yet so funny. Gus was soooo happy to get his. He didn’t care that it wasn’t the right helmet. The ones they got are actually the right size and safer. ‘Santa’ was very generous this year. The older boys just got candy stockings since they’re too old for Santa.
Ewey wasn’t happy with his pillow pet at first, but he’s now carrying around his monkey to sleep on. Gus was extremely happy with his dog. He usually carries around these blankets with little animals on them, but he hasn’t touched them all day. He’s instead carrying the dog everywhere. I think I’ve officially replaced the blanket!! Yay!!
The whole family (Alicia’s side) showed up around 10, opened presents by 11:15am and most ppl were gone by 12:30pm, ha ha. Her mother, nephew and his girlfriend left around 3:30pm. By that time, I was stuffed, bored and ready to sleep. I got to skype with my parents. Mom got a NOOK tablet from my dad, they got a Walmart card from my bro and he got a laptop from them. He got 2 of my presents so far, but there are 2 more still on the way. He actually loved them. Hope he likes the other 2. And now it’s 5:21pm, all 3 of us are exhausted and the twins are still in nut-so mode!! HOW?! We need rest!!
We’re going to Noosa tomorrow and spending 2 days on the Sunshine Coast. Plenty of time to swim, relax and explore 🙂
