I tell my kids that on Christmas morning that they can't come out of their rooms until about 7:30am, and only when I am ready for them to come out. I have to get ready, turn on Christmas lights, Christmas music, and then yell out to the kids (who are usually in Lauren's & Kayley's room) about all the cool stuff that Santa had brought. I also let the kids know this year that Santa was not bringing a lot of stuff because I told him that we didn't need a lot (hehe).

I asked him a few days before his birthday what type of cake he wanted, and he said "o-wange" cake. So I made a pound cake and put an orange-colored glaze on it. It was good. He got some new Chevron cars and a Thomas train for his tracks... Good day!
Love you Joey!! Happy 3rd Birthday!!

Elder Miller called us on Christmas Day around 9:30am. We spoke with him for about an hour. He sounded good, and so grown-up. He said that he had already opened up the gifts we sent, and had seen what "Santa" had brought to him in his stocking. He said he loved them all, and that he wasn't disappointed. I got him a dk. red sweater from Target with a tie that match from Kohl's. I also got him candy, food and whatever else I got him. I can't even remember now! It wasn't lots, so maybe that's why.
For all you mothers out there who think that your young son's mission is so long away... it'll happen before you know it!! But we have been so blessed because of it!!

But I will have to either try the ones Sams had, or learn to make my own, because these were the nastiest tasting gingerbread houses & candy that I have ever tasted!! I will never buy the Wilton ones again!! Any good recipes out there?

After all the fun and laughter was over, we watched a 3 minute music video that my friend had done for my YW daughters on "Wisemen Still Seek Him." It was very nice, and hopefully set the Christmas spirit in everyone!

Then we went home. End of story.

When I left the other day, the trim is now up around the front door, and most of the floor boards are up, and my whole hallway is done too!! It's amazing! Shawn did such a good job! He only tore up a small bit of tile after deciding it wasn't right, and redid it all. It's now almost perfect (can't say it's 100% perfect), and I am so happy because of it!! I want a dark red rug by the front door. I have a found a few on-line that I really like. I want it to be round, as I think it would be totally cool. But if I have to get square/rectangle, then I will.
