Christmas 2009

We had a great Christmas at our house. My parents were able to come up and spend the day with us, which is always a lot of fun. We woke up that morning and Geoffery went to go see if Santa really did come while we waited upstairs- impatiently! Sure enough Santa did come and brought lots of toys with him! Grant ran downstairs as fast as he could and just stood there starring at all his new toys! We have a tradition in our family that Santa displays all the toys instead of wrapping them. So their already to be played with, with the batteries already in them and out of the box! Grant's big toy this year was a train table, so he got his wish! Madelyn's big toy was a jumperoo which she also loves!

So Geoffery and I always try to get each other nice things for Christmas. Geoffery starts asking early on what I got him hoping that I will somehow accidentaly tell him. Well this year I was sure that I got him something and he really hadn't guessed what it was. I had gotten him a blue ray player and he had guessed everything but this. I was really excited because in years past, I'll get him something and then right before he unwraps it, he guesses what it is! It really frustrates me- to my core! But I really thought I got him this year. So the week before Christmas he's asking me is it this??? or this??? or this??? Well I hope it's not a blue ray player because that would just be lame. When he said that I was soo mad at him and wouldn't talk to him the rest of the night. He felt pretty bad to say the least. I mean wouldn't any guy be excited for a blue ray player?! Come on, its a GREAT gift! So to say the least Geoffery didn't have anything to unwrap on Christmas day, thanks to his own curiosity! I ended up just giving it to him with the receipt attached.

On the other hand, people who don't pry get to be surprised on Christmas day. So he gave me perfume, running shoes (for Zumba), and a CD. Thanks hun, sorry your Christmas was ruined! Here's some pictures from the day!
