Ok, we'll get the moaning out of the way first. Yes, I'm STILL with child. We made it through Christmas and then I had a doctor appointment on Monday at which the doctor informed me I was dilated to a 3 1/2 or 4, and he'd be shocked if I didn't have the baby within a few days. Well Doc, I guess you'll be shocked to see me again THIS Monday! (And I'm sure you'll be pleased by my mood.)
I get it. Baby knows it's freezing cold winter outside. He knows it's way cooler to be born in 2011. And he knows that I need more stretch marks. This has already been my longest pregnancy and the biggest I've ever gotten!
So in the meantime, let's get Christmas covered.
We had a delicious feast of prime rib, potatoes, roasted asparagus, pineapple and pie. We also carried on our tradition of opening Christmas crackers and wearing the crowns.
After dinner we had some music and read the Christmas story from the scriptures. Hunter and I played a duet of "Deck the Halls", he sang a solo of "Santa Claus is Coming to Town", and then we all sang "Hark the Herald Angels" together.
Then we let the boys open a present before climbing into bed.
We were awokened by Hunter running around yelling things like:
"Santa came! And Daddy didn't get coal in his stocking! He must have been a little nice. And McKay was on the nice list. I didn't know that!"
He was also thrilled with his skateboard. It was the only thing he asked Santa for. McKay saw it and kept saying, "Where's my gun?" (That was the only thing HE asked Santa for.)
McKay finally found his gun! They also got a batcave that they were thrilled with, but McKay kept using Robin for target practice.
McKay had also mentioned he wanted a lightsaber, and since he's my Star Wars fan I couldn't resist.
After the presents were all opened we took the kids swimming at my parents hotel before cleaning up and taking naps.
