That night Steve and I slept in front of the Christmas tree. Belle was the first one to awaken in the morning...4:00am to be exact. She rushed to where ll the other children were sleeping and and told the kids of the Santas arrival at our home. And up the races to retrieve their stockings. Once the stockings had been emptied and thoroughly investigated, Steve and I made the Christmas breakfast. I had purchased cinnamon bread from Kneaders the day before and made french toast, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages.
Once all the dishes were done and the kitchen cleaned up we went into livingroom and gathered around the Christmas tree and began taking turns at opening our gifts.
One of the best gifts to watch the children open was one from my parents. Becky was unwrapping as the other children watched...they all saw at the same time the words Wii on the box...The look of surprise on their faces was priceless. They screamed and hooted ad hollered. It was awesome to watch.
