What do you get when you add Christmas Presents + In-Laws? Is it fantastic or kind of a bust? This year we went to DH's Mom's house (basically 1 level w/ a small bedroom on the second floor) and she had invited a few people so all in all there were 11 people in her house (Nobody gets along anyways since we had to listen to 2 fat jokes about me, and watch Dh's 17 y/o brother slap the butt of his 14 y/o girlfriend, and back talk galore). So it may have been in bad taste of us, but we gave a short list of things that Pat couldn't have (soft items he can chew up). Apart from acting like a total spazz-monkey (lots of decorations, lights, it was loud, crowded, and an autistic kids nightmare basically), so one big present the boys got from them was a nerf rocket set. Pump up the launcher and launch the nerf rocket...thingy. Gone 1 hour after opening package and 20 minutes of play. Pat ate it. Literally. Chewed it up...ate it. *sigh* So DH said next year we'll invite them over to our house so that wont be a problem (we didn't decorate really except for a 4 foot tree for Pat). Other than that things were great. We got alot of blankets from the inlaws, and educational things fro the boys, and pajamas. How was your Christmas?
