The other kids took their turns so nicely. Not one of them complained about waiting.
We decided to let the kids open the BIG package, since TJ wanted in on the action!My grandkids were thrilled with the gift! My children seemed happy, but, I think they did not know what to do with it.
I will say my kids really spent a lot of time on it after everyone left. They are excited to begin lessons on January 12th. The piano was such a blessing....truly a gift from God.
After the kids are done, the adults all do a grab game. (look at that kitchen!!!!....what a mess! We usually clean up first, but the weather was so bad I wanted everyone to be able to get home before it got too bad. Charlotte, my aunt, and I cleaned it up in no time!)My sister and her husband CHEAT! Yes, they do.....they conspire on what, and how they will get, a certain gift! Look at them acting all innocent!I am not sure if it was the wallhanging I made, or the Limited Homemade Gourmet Carrot Cake Mix, but they were able to pull it off and ended up with the package they wanted!!! Cheaters, I say!
I am happy to say Debbie's son does not take after her in that respect and he plays fair and square! Andrew is such a wonderful guy!!!I did not get these in the grab, but I wanted to share the gift I got from Bud and Rachel......I almost cried, they are so beautiful!
After everyone went home, my kids opened the one gift they always get on Christmas Eve. It is a tradition since I was a child.....a new pair of jammies!Everyone was happy, and though they should have been tired, they were NOT!Zach modeled his jams, while Charlotte (in the background) played the piano for a while. Zach got his turn too, and then off to bed they went!!!It was a wonderfully blessed Christmas Eve. I will share our Christmas morning with you tomorrow!!! Praying your holy-day was as blessed as ours!
