Happy Christmas!

Spencer put out cookies and milk, left food and apples for the reindeer, put on his new Christmas jammies, said his prayers and went to sleep like a good boy Christmas Eve. I, on the other hand, stayed up half the night working on "things." It was worth every second-- he was so happy Christmas morning! He was excited and couldn't "land" on any one gift for more than 2 seconds!
My favorite part of the morning was when he stopped unwrapping his gifts midway through his big 'ol stack of presents. He ran upstairs to his room and brought down a bag of gifts my dad and brother helped him buy. The first one I unwrapped was a beautiful scarf and Spencer was almost giddy to watch me open my presents-- there aren't many 7 year olds that would stop unwrapping presents and get excited to see his mom unwrap a scarf.
The rest of the day was filled with lots of family fun and traditions. I, of course, got tons of pictures! Mom and Dad got me a new computer--this one is dying a slow and painful death. I need to get all my photos off of this one ASAP and then perform an exorcism. My new PC rocks, but I HATE HATE HATE Vista. Speaking of photos, check out Spencer in his cute Christmas Jammies, Mom and Dad, and me and my buddy: Drunk Julie.

Isn't he a darling worrying about others before himself. You know I don't think I've seen a photo of your mum before - you are the spitting image of your mum!!

What a wonderful day. That's so nice of Spencer to stop for you. I've heard a lot of people stripping off the vista and having xp loaded on.

Sounds like a great day! I forgot to get pictures of the grandparents. :duh:
