Anyway, Kendal was up in no time and Kelsey was so excited. When Kendal saw her new bike, she dove out of my arms and nearly did a header to get to it!
Kelsey had left a note for Santa in her stocking, so she made sure to check it pretty early. When I was little, we once forgot about our stockings until that afternoon!
Kelsey got a sewing box FILLED with sewing goods from my mom. She loves it and is ready to get going on a project!
Matt's favorite gift this year was a Thompson Center Omega 50 caliber laminated, thumb hole stock muzzle loader. He was VERY happy about this little beauty. I say beauty, because it really is, I must admit. The laminated stock shows the gorgeous wood grain, and it is nice!
Kendal got a great John Deere transporter full of tractors from my dad. She loves it and even makes the sounds! The speech therapist will be happy about that!
But Kendal's favorite gift this year is definitely her aquadoodle. Thanks for the idea Krista! She has been drawing ALL day.
It looks as if Santa's sleigh tipped over at our house. Thanks everyone for your sweet gifts and all the fun.
We all had a good time watching and playing the guitars to some old songs that brought back some high school memories!
Debbie and I even played to Motley Crue's Shout at the Devil. We did awesome! Matt and I also had a little duel. So darn funny!
Some of Derek's friends came over to play Guitar Hero too. We seriously played for a good 5 hours this afternoon. These are some of the boys that shot their bows and arrows all summer with Matt outside. They are good kids and nice guys to have around the neighborhood.
Now my little darlings are watching Kelsey's new movie Barbie as the Island Princess in their new chairs Santa brought. It is time to wind down. I got a really great foot soaker/massager that I am so ready to put to use tonight. Matt got me some really nice new speakers for my computer too, so now I get to hear my blog music in surround sound!! Why does Tom Petty always come up? I really think I get that one more than any other song. There is a story to that song, I listened to Tom Petty for an entire week once on a fire out by Oak City. Kinda killed me on Tom Petty, but it reminds me of the good ol days fighting fire.
