it was a success...except for wells refusing to wear pants. oh and the fact that brian was (and still is) working nights. but otherwise christmas was a win! tate and beck got enough star wars legos, playmobil, and books to keep them occupied for awhile. and wells got a fire truck, a bouncy cow, the most awesome stuffed animal of all time (it's a fluffy owl) and a book that he is now obsessed with. plus...my parents were here! so that made the fact that we couldn't go home this year a little easier to handle.
