The Children were Nestled all Sung in Their Beds...

When we got home from the Cope's the garage door wouldn't open. Rich figured we needed new batteries int he opener so he got out and went to the keypad to open it and it still didn't open. He went inside to push the button in the garage and nothing!!
While he was in the house he realized that some of the lights were not working either. He called his dad and he came over to check things out. I can't remember what it was that was the problem but it required a new part and obviously the stores were not open and wouldn't be until after Christmas. He rigged it so the heater worked and we got an extension cord for the fridge. We are SO LUCKY that we didn't head right to Logan after the party because we would have come home to frozen pipes and rotten food and who know what else!!!

After we got all that figured out it was pretty late so I gave the kids their new PJ's and got them all tucked into Alex's bed to watch a movie.

Rich and I got everything situated and then we went to bed too. The kids set the alarm for 7am, Christmas is such a fun time!!!

I almost forgot...we had a jar of candy on our front door when we got home and a $100 Macey's gift card was taped to the top!!! I feel so blessed to live in such a wonderful, giving ward/neighborhood and we are VERY thankful for everyone's kindness. It was a very thoughtful thing to do and we greatly appreciate it!

They are so cute all in Alex's bed. Christmas Eve was the best groing up and we'd all sleep in the same room and watch Christmas Even on Sesame Street. I can't believe your kids had to set the alarm.
