After opening gifts, we enjoyed a crazy wonderful evening. Owen hit his face with a plastic candy cane and bloodied his nose. He actually just reopened a scratch he had gotten the other day. It didn't bleed the other day though so he must have smacked himself hard. It didn't stop him from continuing to munch the candycane. Beau put together his new game and Ben whooped up on his poor kids twice, during the fun Luke hit his eye on the corner of the coffee table and now he has a shiner. Luke and I enjoyed drawing on his new table, writing the whole alphabet and making Christmas objects like trees. Anna's mind is whirling with ideas for her doll house. She loved looking through everything that came with it and she is more than willing to move Owen out of her room to move her dollhouse in. As I was about to tell the kids to get ready for bed, Ben pulled out a sugar cookie recipe and he and Anna got to work while the boys watched Charlie Brown. They got to bed by 9 and a fun family night was had by all even with blood and tears. Can't wait for all the activities we are about to encounter and all the people we get to share them with, I'm so excited I can hardly sleep.
