But I was dressed so Briss and I were able to exchange our gifts to one another. I got him an Xbox game and he got me 8 old DVDS. 4 movies with Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy and 4 movies with James Cagney in them. I can't wait to watch them. Just like I'm sure Briss can't wait to play Red Dead Redemption on his Xbox. I was also able to watch Kaellyn open her presents which included some food for her to chew on. She is certainly interested in solid food and I can't wait to get home and start her on some bananas and sweet potatoes. So it was about 5:30 pm and I was starting to feel a little better so I ate some broth. That was not a good idea because it just came back up about 30 minutes later and I was really weak. Picking 17 pound Kaellyn up was so draining. It was awful to feel like this on Christmas.
So I remained on the couch watching Titanic for 3 hours. Everyone (including Grandma Donna) was downstairs playing on the Wii fit and having a fun time. I was sad. But it was what it was. I then fell asleep on the couch and stayed there all night. Briss took Kaellyn and kept her downstairs and got up with her in the middle of the night so I could get a solid 6 hours of sleep. It was wonderful. I then woke up at 6am and went downstairs to nurse Kaellyn and get up with her when she woke up on Sunday.
So that was my Christmas. It wasn't very enjoyable and I am looking forward to next years Christmas much more. Although Briss did have a good Christmas he said Kaellyn was up 4 times in the night and wouldn't go back to sleep easily for him so his night was somewhat rough. I know he enjoyed playing all the Wii with the whole family. So here are some pictures I snapped of that day.

I wish there were more pictures but I wasn't really up and motivated to get pictures and Briss doesn't ever take any on his own. Sorry!
