'Twas the Night Before Christmas....at the Palmer's anyway

Grace got a "big girl" bike whose training wheels will hopefully come off soon. She also got a keyboard and microphone, Perfection game, suitcase, toiletry bag, and Sleeping Beauty Barbie. "Santa", AKA Dianna and Josh, about died putting stuff together. Especially me!! Josh thinks this is the most fun thing in the world, but I was cussing. Does anyone else hate how MANY plastic ties they secure the toy to the box with? Thousands! And tape, and more cardboard than should be allowed in our "green" environment. I couldn't do it! I couldn't un-do one more plastic tie! And the decal stickers! Insane! They sure don't want to help you out in any way!

Merry Christmas to All, and to all a good night, anyway!
"Santa" was pretty good this year. We didn't want to go ALL out since the economy isn't the greatest. My mom keeps saying, "SAVE YOUR MONEY!" like we need to be hiding it under our mattress. I digress.... Brady got the Helmet Heroes police gear, more parts to his train, a Buz Lightyear gun, a semi truck full of matchbox cars, a suitcase, "Jungle Book" movie, and Texas Tech jersey. Pretty good for a 2 yr old. Josh was totally disgusted that "Santa" needed to bring monogrammed suitcases. That's no fun, he says.

Showing their letter to Santa....begging him to leave toys because they were good enough!

They were really concerned for the reindeer as well. I don't know if they knew about this from school or where they got it from. We don't really talk in depth about the reindeer. Anyway, carrots it was!
The kids love making cookies for Santa. I was surprised how much Brady got into it. We're usually in a hurry, so break and bake it is!
