The boys got the movie Dolphin Tale for Christmas so that's what we watched. Aunt Lauren got Scrabble for the boys and they couldn't wait to play and we were able to get a game in before she and Ryan left. Then everyone went to bed around 10:00 PM so we could all wake up rested Christmas morning.
~ Christmas Morning ~
We gave the boys a mini donut maker and let them open it on Christmas Eve so guess what we had for breakfast Christmas Morning? MINI DONUTS!!! They loved decorating them and choosing different batter/flavor; the favotire was the vanilla batter with a traditional glaze.
The big "Santa" gift was this awesome basketball backboard and hoop! After Brad installed it above the garage on the front of the house the boys were thrilled to "play basketball" which consisted of them trying to see if they could get the ball in the hoop! They know nothing of the rules of the game. Hayden was the first one to to make it in with his mini basketball!
Brad had brought home two regular-sized camouflage National Guard basketballs (and since Tristen was not interested in playing ball outside with his brothers, he's turning into such a teenager). Each boy had their own ball and they'd throw them at the hoop at the same time and "whoevers ball makes it in, wins!"
Merry Christmas Everyone, I hope yours was as full of life and laughter as ours was!
