CL wanted to know, so here it is. I just had what may be the best Christmas ever. Our son is 5, so you can just imagine his excitement. For months leading up to Christmas he was cutting out toys pictures from the Sears catalog & gluing them into a montage of sorts. He had 2 Christmas plays, one for Kindergarten and one for daycare. Both were adorable. Christmas Eve visits were amazing, our Son was the centre of attention, reprising his starring role from his Kindergarten play. Christmas morning we woke up to lots of presents from Santa. The look on our son's face as he opened his stocking was priceless. But we then discovered that his Grandfather bought him the biggest gift imaginable, a new John Deere Gator! He had wanted one for years, but we could never justify the expense. My Mom & sister soon arrived to open their gifts with us, as is tradition. Again, excellent gifts all around, after we had eaten a hearty breakfast. Our son was a doll, despite being spoiled to death. Soon it was time for Christmas Dinner with the entire extended family. Always a treat. The next day I discover that my sister's long-time boyfriend finally proposed, and she accepted. And to top it all off, our best friends announced their were expecting. So that makes 5 couples, all of us close friends, all having babies within months of each other! That's it in a nutshell. Thanks for listening!
