What a fun filled day, with my favorite things, family and food!!! Cannon got up to find that Santa did come! He was also happy that Santa didn't wake him up, since he has had a little anxiety about a strange bearded man coming into our house. Luckily, that's all over with! And, what other day of the year can you eat a marshmallow Santa for breakfast?
We had a great time at my mom's house, which is always chaotic with ALL of us there! It's always fun though. Then a quiet visit to Greg's parent's house, where Cannon had more fun cousins to play with, and Uncle Jeff, who played take down till they both dropped! What a wonderful Christmas! Hope it was wonderful for all of you too!

I'd like to pretend I'm a grown up and say that only Cannon had ants in his pants, but Greg and I did too!! Cannon woke up at 5am on Christmas Eve!! Yipes. So, Mommy woke up and got dressed and we headed off to Wa Wa Kathy's. A new tradition: Christmas Eve breakfast! Lacie and Austyn were there too, so an instant party.
Then I drove home, trying to get Cannon to take a nap. This ALWAYS works, except on Christmas Eve, I guess. So Mom was cranky and Cannon was cranky.
Then the DADDY says, "Let's go somewhere."
Um, there are cookies to make and presents to wrap, but oh well. Another new tradition, Christmas Eve dinner at WaWa Kathy's!
We took some Crown Royal, just for a Christmas toast, but Papa Johnny Mack drank the whole damn thing! So he was the entertainment! So much for the Yahtzee game!!! Cannon just rolled the dice trying to get them all to number 1.
Finally we all go to go home and go to sleep so Santa could stop by............

This year, Cannon drew my mom's name in our family drawing for Christmas presents. He wanted to pick something out for her himself, and he wanted to use his "own dollars". So, off we went to the Dollar store where he could get the most for his money. He also wanted to get something for his dad. When I asked him "What do you think Dad would like? What is his favorite thing to do?" Cannon replied, "Cleaning!" Duh Greg! So we picked out a few things and came home and wrapped them. It was fun, he did a good job. Can't wait to see their faces when they open them!
