Deniska has been in a surly mood all day. Before church, I asked him what was wrong. He said that he was afraid that he had not been good enough for Santa to visit him. He stresses over any type of extra activities such as birthdays or Christmas. So, I assured him that his name was right at the top of the "Nice" list and he would indeed have a visit from St. Nicholas. Then, he was concerned that Nikolai would not make the list. I assured him that even Nikolai had made the list as well - just barely! Now I know that some of you reading this might not
Anyway, back to the evening. Dennis and I decided to let the boys open the gifts they received from relatives who will not be with us tomorrow. This includes their Grandma Joyce, Dennis' Sister and her family, and "Grandpa" and Lillian. They had a great time opening the gifts and I think it helped to ease Deniska's mind that he would indeed get more gifts in the morning.
Both boys got a movie and a bear claw from their Aunt Deanna, Uncle Darrel, Christian and Anthony.
Grandma Joyce sent each boy a Rubik's Cube. Their daddy will enjoy playing with that!
Dennis really likes his money clip from his mother. He saved the box as well since it was such a nice box! Looks like Nikolai kinda has his eye on his daddy's money clip!! Dennis also got black socks. This is something he needs and wanted. At church tonight, I looked down at Nikolai's feet and he had a pair of his daddy's black socks on. They came all the way up to his knee! So funny.
Grandpa and Lillian sent each boy a gift certificate to Wal-Mart!
Anna wanted to know if that gift was hers?! Silly cat! That's Dennis' gift, not yours!
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope Santa is good to you this year!!
PS - I just noticed that the date on my camera is wrong. I really do need a new camera!!!!
