Okay so all the kids are getting to that age where they start to question Santa...well I wouldn't have it this year. Let the children go as long as they can believing. So on Christmas Eve Emma was the only one in the house. I was tring all night to get her to go to sleep. It was after midnight and I decided to go and lay down with her. All of a sudden we heard something like hooves on our tin roof. Then we heard a bell, then a HO HO HO!! Emma Jane looked at me and said "He really does exist! I am so going to tell Sherley Santa came to my house!!" I kissed her on her forehead, then tucked her in nice and tight. With tears in my eyes I walked out into the living room as Chris was walking into the house. Chris looked at Emma and told her that he was told by Santa to go to sleep so she could get her gifts. Emma passed out within 5 minutes. On Christmas morning she awoke to all the presents under the tree...Santa came, Santa came!! Knowing that she had to wait till her brother and sisters got there she got to open one present and her stocking. She was in heaven!! When Alex, Lacey and Katey got there the fun really began. I watched them tear into their presents and my eyes filled with tears. It was the most wonderful thing to watch. I got to see my 4 children go ballistic over the littlest things and it made me smile. I think this was the most wonderful Christmas I could have ever had. We didn't have a lot of money to get a lot of stuff, but they were all very happy about what they did get. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful family!! PS Pictures will be posted real soon...promise!
