MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!PJ and I were woken up by Scott and Alyssa at 8 singing some religious song!
We had MANY laughs and good times as we opened our gifts.
Every year, Scott gets PJ under ware that is just sooooo NOT PJ. This year was no exception!
another funny from Scott... "Who ever hits the cat first, WINS"!
and yet another funny. This one is from Brooke. It's dryer lint in a zip lock bag! She had it amongst the presents in the box she sent to us. Brooke and Alyssa used to leave me piles of lint on top of the dryer until I got on their case to throw it out. Then I found a HUGE blob of it on the kitchen table with a noite about sheering sheep. I scrapbooked that note and lint years ago. So now I get this package of lint, thinking Brooke is so clever... so I thought!

Alyssa was going through her stocking and found what else but a ziplock bag of dryer lint that I had put there!! Amazing that Brooke and I were thinking the same this year!
Alyssa and Scott both texted Brooke to say how funny it was that we both thought of the joke with the dryer lint. Here's how the text's went....
Alyssa: Not only did u give Mom lint, but I got a bag of it in my stocking LOL!
Brooke: HAHAHA! The lint was for packing purposes! It wasn't a present for Mom HAHA but I guess we can pretend! LOL She'll probably scrapbook it!
Alyssa: What are you a dope? Who packs presents with lint? Did you honestly think a bag that small would keep everything safe?
And so it went....
Some of things that were put in their stockings were dollar store kids toys etc. They were such a hit!!! Later in the day, they, including Dave, had fun watching little pellets turn into dinosaur sponges!
This is Scott's crystal growing tree. Within an hour it had crystals on it!
By morning, it was beautiful!
This was a very quiet yet fun Christmas. The Dollar Store items were such a big hit that Scott and Alyssa proposed trying something new for Christmas next year.... Let's have a Dollar Store/Garage Sale Christmas. They both said that they don't need or really want anything so this could be fun. They want to have a dollar amount, like $30, and 1/2 goes to items from the
$ store and 1/2 is from garage sales. They were totally serious! As crazy as it is, I think it could be a lot of fun!!!
