Merry Christmas

The Johnson household had a WONDERFUL Christmas! We had some family in town to help us celebrate the Christmas Spirit with us. On Christmas Eve, we decided to relax at home as a family. While the boys were taking their afternoon naps, we decided to surprise them with a "chimney" for Santa to come down from. So Phil with his creative mind, got to work on our homemade chimney :o) And the boys LOVED it!!!! Phil's sister and nephew came over for Christmas Eve dinner, and we sat around visiting and having a good time. Once they left we got to work on setting up for Santa....we read our Advent book, got Santa's cookies and Milk, and the reindeer's carrots. Ace had a hard time falling asleep, he kept waking up and peeking out his door to see if Santa came yet. But after a while both boys fell fast asleep, and were happy when they woke the next morning to see that Santa did indeed come to our home. The boys had a GREAT time opening their gifts from Santa and from the family. Ace got : Transformer Bumblebee Mask, Transformer Bumblebee arm gun, 2 transformer figurines, Transformer Optimus Prime Hand Gun, Handy Mandy Toys, Puzzles, Books, Sword, Movies, Candy, and a couple more odds and ends. Aidan recieved: a Spiderman Chair, A Big Brown Bear, his own Handy Mandy Tool Set, Sword, puzzle, leggos, candy, and more odds and ends. Mommy received: a Cricut Create, 2 more Willow Tree Figurines, Hot Chocolate Mix, Dominoes, Keurig Coffee Maker (which Santa delived a couple days late....must of forgot about it), some Gary Chapman books, Candy, and Spa Finder Gift Cards. Daddy recieved: A photo calendar, some boxers, some movies, candy, and lots of love.....Daddy always seems to get jipped on Christmas.....but he will never let "Santa" bring him anything :o( We then sat around and just enjoyed our time together as a family :o) Phil's sister and nephew came back over and we enjoyed dinner together. All in all we had a WONDERFUL Christmas :o)
