Merry day after Christmas

Well another Christmas has come and gone. We had a very nice Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
On Christmas Eve we went to my sister Raelynn and Gary's house. Below are a few pics of the 3 boys/cousins. It is a blessing that the 3 of them get along so well considering the age difference between the cousins.

The cousins; Jordan, Nikolas & Ethan Christmas Eve:

One of the gifts we got Nik. I think the camera focused on the gift. LOL

Jordan opening his gifts:

Ethan opening his gifts. He had a feeling the Eickhoff's would get him this:

Christmas Morning:
Ok why did I take this picture? Because Jordan kept saying that he didn't hear this version of this song all season. The minute we sat down to open presents look what came on:

Ethan opening up his presents Christmas morning:

Jordan opening up his presents Christmas morning. Jordan thought for sure Raelynn was going to get him this:

Even though he has not been a good boy lately, Dilly/Dillinger received a couple of gifts:

Todd was able to take a break from work to open gifts:

And here I am opening gifts too:

As like every year our Christmas' are dominated by DVD's here is the pile of ones that we received minus a couple:

And this was the big gift to the family this year. I think I was the only one excited about it, because I was the one who wanted it. LOL

So now we wait a few more day for New Years Eve. Looking forward to it because I have 1 vacation day left for the year and I am using it for a 4 day weekend.
Merry day after Christmas!!!

Holiday Movies

I have been trying to squeeze as many holiday movies as I can from Thanksgiving until Christmas.
Here are the ones I have watched so far:

Disney's A Christmas Carol. A lot of people are freaked out by the animation, for me no more than Polar Express (now that animation was freaky!) but I really liked this movie alot.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas. One of my favorites. Again another Jim Carrey, coincidence I promise.

I never get to watch all 3 of this so this year I made it a point to do it:

The Santa Clause really well written version that explains how Santa comes to be.

The Santa Clause 2 not my favorite, but The Santa Clause 3 wouldn't have been able to be made without this one. I notice that Peter Boyle play a duel role in this trilogy. He plays Scott Calvins boss in The Santa Clause and then he plays Father Time in The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3 the Escape Clause.

The Santa Clause 3 The Escape Clause. My favorite of the 3 SANTA CLAUSE movies

There are 2 more I really want to see:

ELF this one just makes me laugh so much.
And our Christmas Eve tradition movie:

A Christmas Carol with Alastair Sim. All the presents are under the tree, we turn all the lights off, light candles and watch this movie.

Others I would love to squeeze in but just never have the time to do so. Holiday Inn, Miracle on 34th Street, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story and It's a Wonderful Life; which by the way I have never seen.
Nope, I have never see that movie. I know the jist of what the movie is about, but never have actually seen it.
