Woke up this morning to Garrett in my bed with us, asking if he could get up yet? I'm like half asleep still trying to wake up enough to see what time it was...not even seven am yet, so no Garrett you can't get up yet! But the asking to get up doesn't cease and about fifteen minutes later I'm forced to get up. Funny thing is, he just wanted to get up, not even realizing that it was Christmas morning yet! So of course, I get up, brush my teeth and grab the camera...by this time he's already in the living room where the light bulb suddenly goes off and he realizes that Santa DID indeed come to see him. Jackie and Tyler continue to sleep through most of the mornings activities.
Santa Came to see us!
Garrett was by no means disappointed this morning. Santa brought him the Hasbro Nerf N Strike Vulcan EBF-25 Blaster, which he insists on calling it by the full name in like 100 words per second. He was completely thrilled.
We then continued opening gifts until they were all opened....Shawns parents sent him some Blueberry flavored coffee which he absolutely loves, so I of course had to take a picture of that....**he's soooo cute!!
Then it was off to cook dinner. I had to have everything done, and we had to have eaten by two o'clock as that was the time that Richie came to pick up Garrett for his Christmas time with him.
Once Garrett was gone, Tyler went into his room and took a nap, Jackie left to go to her Grandma's and Shawn and I watched some tv....or let's say my intentions were to watch tv, but I fell asleep right there on the couch and took a nice long nap.
The plan was to go to Jackie's Grandmas and visit with my ex in-laws and such, but with me falling asleep I never made it over there. I think I woke up about an hour before the hockey game.
Yep, we went to a Fayetteville Fireantz Hockey game on Christmas Night! Absolutely best game that I've ever been too! And I've been to quite a few. There were people being escorted out of the game due to throwing beer on the ice, and the fights were continuous. We all know that we go to the games for the fights, and tonight was no let down. At one time, every single player on the ice at that moment was fighting. They had no idea what to do....put all the players in the penalty box? Stop the game? I think not!! They let them fight it out a bit, then stopped it, and continued on with the game. The Fireantz wound up winning 6-4. Great entertainment!
Then I came home to some really nasty comments on my blog! Merry Christmas to me right! I have been in shock ever since that someone that I thought knew me/that I knew would have the audacity to post what they did. Very insulting and very hurtful. Of course they denied it. All the evidence pointed to them. Not sure what I believe any more. I want badly to believe that they would never do such a thing, but at the same time, the proof was there. Right in front of me. So from now on, if you want to leave comments, I get to approve them first. Takes some of the fun out of it, but this was really quite hurtful, and I'm still trying to figure it out.
