So, on Christmas Eve we go to my Mamasita's house down in Tyler.
A good time was had by all.
There was LOTS of yummy food, including Hubby's Beef Wellington & this yummy asparagus casserole.
Alas, it was time to go home...
Allen rode back to Dallas with us to spend the night and Christmas day with Dad.
...so, when Allen went back to Dad's, and Gagie was tucked safely in bed...it seems....that Santa came!
Santa is clearly a fan of my oatmeal-chocolate-chip cookies...
Why...what is THAT? It's Gage's new train table that Santa & his helpers delivered. Geez, Santa....big enough? Perhaps you should have read that it was 4 foot by 6 foot before you bought it! ...I mean---before the elves made it.
Santa & his helpers had to rearrange Gage's room a little, and had to move some furniture out. (read: the changing table...........okay, so I'm a freak & I've used the changing table MUCH longer than the average family...whatever. I loved the changing table...)
Twas the Night Before Christmas 2008, Lainey-Paney Style:
And so...it was the night before Christmas, and all through the house...not a creature was stirring, because there better not be a single mouse in this house!
Gagie was tucked into his parents' bed, so visions of his train table didn't appear in his head... The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...but they were so full that they wouldn't stay there. The family was dressed in their matching pj's, and all slept in "daddy's bed" until the next day. And just when I'd reached that deep sleep like Heaven, In walked my father in law at nearly 7:00!
...and tonight, that's where the story must end.
I'll post about Christmas Day soon, I promise!
