Holidays are definitely a billion times better when you have kids! I have had a real hard time getting the Christmas spirit this year, but every time I saw Liv light up over Santa I got a little bit of the magic! She was so excited for Santa's arrival, and she made sure that he knew that she wanted the Talking Dora Kitchen... I think we saw five Santas this year to deliver the special request! So Christmas Eve was full of excitement as the magical hour arrived. Ironically enough, it was Gary that had a hard time going to sleep that night, and of course Liv wouldn't sleep until he did so it ended up a late night. I was real excited for them, so I didn't get much sleep. And when the kids slept in, it was torture for the mom! Anyways, we got them up & Liv was all alight with excitement! Once we got the rest of the Young household up and going we got the first present unwrapped & then all craziness broke loose! We spent the holiday with Todd's family so there was 11 people unwrapping gifts all at once... Crazy! It ended up a good Christmas. Liv got a lot of "My Littlest Petshop" toys, as wells as some "My Little Ponies", a nice dress up chest, and of course the Dora Kitchen! Gary boy made out nicely with all sorts of Mickey toys and Tonka cars (the soft squishy kind), and the guitar which he rarely parts even to go to bed! The kids were so happy &, therefore, so was the mom and dad!!
