Would you look at what Santa Brought......

Christmas morning started as usual, but usual in our house is not like everyone else's.  My kids would still sleep until 10:00 a.m. even if its Christmas morning.  Yes they are excited that it is Christmas, but they also like their sleep, even Little Logan.  Actually this year Big Logan got up before everyone else and then had to wake us up because he was bored.  

So where was I, Oh yeah Christmas as usual.

Syd on the couch still not awake......

Until.........

She was told of a note on the tree for her....

So she runs to the Pantry.........

(I think she thinks its Pop-Tarts!)

Hello, Edward!!!!!!!

DSC_0394

Edward watched us open the rest of the presents, and all was good until........

Someone got a whiff  of the "smelly" vampire.   Cannon is a descendent of wolves and werewolves, so he was not happy.  I think the vents must have come on, because he did not even notice he was here until after about 30 minutes of Edward being there.

Syd is trying to explain to Cannon, that Edward is now part of the family.  That they need to get along.  Even though it is not easy for vampires and werewolves to co-exist he needs to try for the family.  :)

He ain't buying it......

He has gotten used to Edward though.  He doesn't bark at him near as much as he did in the beginning.

Edward likes to join in on family activities.  Right now Rock band (more on that later) is a big thing at our house.

(Notice that it is now dark outside, and she still has not changed clothes.  She has been there playing Rock band alllllllllll day long.)

It is sort of funny though, ever so often you will be walking through the house and catch a glimpse of him out of the corner of your eye, and he will scare the snot out of you.  Syd likes to set him up strategically to catch you off guard.  Like right inside her bedroom door so when Jessie comes home in the middle of the night, he is standing there waiting.    Ya know cause he never sleeps.  :)

I hope Santa was good to you, and I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas!

Ya know, once upon a time, my mother bought me a Soloflex poster for my room. It was ABS ABS ABS! Very hot guy.

Then my mother spent A LOT of time in my room.

No particular reason for sharing this story. Just sharing...

Hi Sweetness, That is so funny about Edward. You'll probably go up to wake Syd, and find him in bed with her. (Hmmm, that wasn't a nice comment was it?) Anyway, how many times have you and Syd seen him at the movies? He has sort of a handsome, creepiness to him, don't you think? Love ya

Wow! What a super cool Christmas. That vampire guy freaks me out though, I don't think i'd want him in my bedroom. I REALLY want to play rockband. SERIOUSLY.

P.S.He loves you.. said...

So I think your Cannon should help pick your dd's men..I'm just sayin!

Funny story!

Letti said...

Now that is a great and clever gift. Who wouldn't want a life size Edward hanging around their house. :)

D... said...

Oh my golly! Edward! What a fantastic present. :)

My kids got Rock Band last Christmas. They LOVE it. However, my daughter, the drummer, is bummed that the new Rock Band has better drums now. And you can't upgrade. You have to buy the whole set. UGH!

Vader's Mom said...

Oh goodness - we have a new family member? I think I'd have to side with Cannon on this one though. Edward kind of freaks me out too :)

Sarah @ ThriftyDecorChick said...

HA! I called my Sis in here to read that, because she is currently (I mean, I had to pull her away from the book to see) reading the last one in the series. I'm starting them next month and then I will understand what the heck ya'll are talking about. :)

tidymom said...

OMG! This has to be one of the funniest posts EVER!!! My 12yo dd was sitting here reading this with me and we were cracking up AND drooling ----maybe your daughter and Edward would like to come over and play at our house!

Where ever did you find/buy that life size Edward?

I'm also cracking up at all the comments here by ladies saying they don't know who Edward is or understand the obsession.....obviously they haven't read the books! LOL or they'd understand!!
