|remy insisted on writing santa a thank you letter to go with the milk and cookies.|
(oats for the reindeer, good idea oma.)
|confession: all of this was for rem. we went a little nuts.|
travis and i had fun playing santa. we stayed up til
2am putting together that fire station and watching home alone.
|when we looked at this house before buying it, i |
imagined remy looking over the stairs down at christmas morning.
|when we finally said he could go down and see!|
|all december, whenever asked what he wanted for christmas,|
he said, "a fire station with a roof on it."
|he was really excited to see it.|
|he even got so excited, he pulled his pants down.|
|exciting moment for travis, watching rem open a basketball.|
|travis spoiled me. a new gold floor lamp i've been eyeing,|
a maroon blazer, books, climbing gear (see: things around my neck),
the harry potter behind the movie scenes book! etc etc etc.
|i have a small problem with being obsessed with using this|
tool i got from the doctor to extract travis's copious amounts of ear wax.
of course i found a fake gift box claiming to be an earwax candle making kit.
|travis truly thought it was real. you can see him clenching|
his teeth, trying to figure out how to tell me he is horrified.
|then the relief that floods his face |
when he realizes, oh she's not that crazy.
|phew! just jeans!|
|my last present. travis wrapped this thing about 15 times.|
when i got to the bottom, it was a USB stick.
i'm like... thanks?
he told me to plug it in to the computer and
wha la! all the harry potter books on tape!!!
so thoughtful that man is.
|the after opening carnage. remy was so sweet.|
after he opened everything, he said,
"thank you santa. i wish you a merry christmas."
|quick family self timer shot.|
i sure love these humans.
|after our christmas morning, we headed to the fire station for a breathing treatment for me.|
somehow my asthma kicked up during the night. the treatment helped a lot, but i didn't
feel great all day sadly.
|but fueled by cinnamon rolls, i survived. here we are with the bodtcher side.|
we had a crazy good breakfast, opened presents, and hung out all afternoon.
i even got a nap this year. (thanks for the amazing coffee/espresso maker mom and dad bodtcher!)
|i love this guy so much.|
it was a great christmas! remy makes life magical.
all the harry potter presents didn't hurt either.
