Christmas pictures (Picture heavy) :)

WOW! What a day! I was very tired when I woke up this morning, all three kiddos were up through out the night and it was hard to get Austin to go to bed, he wanted to see Santa. I played with both boys on the Santa site that tracks where Santa is. I was up until the early AM finishing up the gift wrapping, i even had to wake Dustin up around 1AM-ish to bring Aidan's bike in the house and set it up next to the tree. We ended up with Adriana in bed with us, so she was the first one up. Austin was up next and we all had to wake up Aidan. We laughed so hard because he forgot it was Christmas :) Aidan was the present giver this year, and gave Austin and Bella their gifts that were under the tree. It was a pretty good morning here at home. Austin loved his action figures, model airplane like his daddy, all the video games for the xbox and ps3, legos, Aidan loved all his Tball and baseball stuff, his new red bike, hot wheel cars and legos, and Miss Bella got a princess chair to watch all her Noggin and Nick JR shows in, Her very first cabbage patch kid (that mommy got her and it was 1 of 3 dolls she got and she loves it the most lol, seriously) and a bunch of clothes. After presents and Christmas goodies at home and of course a yummy breakfast we went over to Dustin's grandparents house for our gift exchange we do every year and some family visiting. His mom, Julia, his sister, grandparents, uncles and cousin's were there. Dustin's mom got him for the gift exchange this year, he got a Home depot GC and some clothes, One of his uncles got me and spoiled me with Book store GC's and one for starbucks :) I was a very happy girl ;) You know me I am such a book nerd ;) I got one of D's cousin's and went all over looking for the Bones season 3 DVD box set, three different borders and two B&N's and came up empty! I did find an AWESOME Borders I had not been to yet, this Borders is in downtown Palo Alto! They are housed in the beautifully converted Varsity Theater, it has preserved the beautiful architecture which includes the original Art Deco design, classic molding and authentic Spanish style courtyard complete with fountain, It was AMAZING! I could have totally gotten lost in there! It kinda reminded me of what the libaray would look like in the Harry Potter books. I only wish it was closer to where I live, I could totally use that place as a getaway lol. Next time I go I will take my camera and get some pictures. Anyways I ended up getting his cousin a Khols GC.

The kids had a great time there, Aidan was such a good boy, even with his hurt finger he picked up everyone's trash/wrapping papers for his greatgrandma. He had surgery on his finger two days before, he had gotten a paper cut at school and it got an infection in it so they had to remove a few layers of skin on the whole pinky finger, now he has to keep it covered at all times, poor guy, everyone has been so sick the last week, it's crazy!) This was also the FIRST year I got to cook our Christmas dinner (we usually go to MIL's) I loved it and so did the fam, finally a year where we could enjoy it here at our home. Anyways, I said this post was going to be Picture heavy and so it is :) I think there are like 40+ pictures. Enjoy :)
