Christmas at the Turney's
We are always traveling on Christmas, and until we get some married siblings we will probably ALWAYS travel on Christmas. Because of that, we decided to start a tradition of our own. Yesterday we spent the whole day together, playing, watching Christmas movies, and eating yummy food.
Our Christmas dinner was chicken, potatoes, steamed broccoli, biscuits and gravy and sparkling cider to toast the year. We also had a delicious chocolate Turtle pie for dessert.
After dinner, I picked one present from the tree and we went upstairs to open it. NEW PAJAMAS! We dressed in our PJs and went down stairs when what to our wondering eyes did appear but a room full of presents left by Santa Claus for Hannah!
Hannah saw her Toy Story tent and her immediate reaction was to back up in surprise. Then she went to check it out and found "NEW TOYS!" inside. Buzz, Woody, Dolly, Rex, Ham, Mr. Potato Head, and some other Toy Story toys that escape me at the moment.
I got an Ipod touch which is WAY COOLER than I could have imagined...(Hannah said "How cool") Adam got a new receiver and was very excited, and Hannah was spoiled with her shopping cart, mini computer, books (complete collection of Curious George and Winnie the Pooh along with stuffed Winnie the Pooh guys) clothes etc. We also got Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University which I have been DYING for! I'm so excited I can't hardly stand it!
It was so magical to see her light up! It was my favorite Christmas memory of all time and I will cherish it forever.
