Christmas with the Poyfairs

Christmas at the Poyfairs is always way over done- I grew up with a few presents thinking Santa only spent $25 per kid as I looked through the Sears Christmas catalog every year making a list with the sku #, page #, and price so Santa would get it right (per dad). Then I married into the Poyfair family!! Wow, I never knew Christmas could be so extravagant! Shawn insists that we spend just as much money on ourselves as we do the children- I agree! We had a great Christmas and got everything we wanted. The kids loved it too. We spent the morning opening gifts. Kim (Shawns sister), Mason her husband and her two children, Asher and Ruthanne stayed with us and joined us Christmas morning. After lunch we went to Sara and Jasons (another Poyfair) house and had Christmas dinner and gifts from grandparents. It was very nice to have all the family in town for Christmas. Shawn has 2 brothers and 1 sister who live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area while his brother Dane lives in Arkansas and sister Kim live in Arizona. After Christmas everyone loaded up to go to the Lake house in Tyler, Texas where their parents have a home. Callie and Hayden went with everyone while Shawn, Mason and I stayed behind since Shawn has to work. We will be going tomorrow(Monday)for his day off.

Yes, Christmas now is definetely different than when we grew up. I do try to keep everything reasonable but it never quite happens. The girls are loving the Wii -- especially Annalise.
