Christmas with the Roberts Family part 2 - A Visitor

Ok so here is part two of the saga. Christmas eve we went with my parents to some friends house for a little get to geather. When we got back to my brothers my niece and nephew were already asleep waiting for santa Derek was actually sleeping across a couple chairs near the tree on santa watch so Sean and I went on to bed. Around 1am I hear a noise and we heard Zeus bark...hmmm Santa must be here and the dog hear's him right?? I hear noise that sounds like its in the room with us so I make Sean get up turn on the lights and look around of course he doesnt see anything so out go the lights and back in bed. A few minutes later I hear more noise so i said Sean something is in here and i'm scared, I think at some point the dog barked again. Sean gets up turns the light back on ,we hear Missy in the hallway so sean opens the door and tells her he thinks we have a visitor..so they close the bedroom door and open one side of the closet door,,nothing...open the other side of the closet door there on the top shelf sits a chipmunk...is it Alvin or Simon...nope ...Chipmunk jumps out of closet Missy and I both scream and now i'm standing at the top of the bed while the little chubby (it can only be Theodore) is hopping up the bed towards me. At this point he jumps up on the curtains and I scream again and run out of the room. I hear my niece come out of her room "Mommmmmmmy" ...Brandi go back in your room its not safe I said hahaha..ok really i did tell her there was a chipmunk in there I didnt want to frighten her to badly. My brother is woken up to help catch the chipmunk which he does ...so all is good right nope chipmunk jumps out of the towel and over the landing onto the top of the christmas tree. Now he's down stairs so Sean ,Missy and Mike all go down to catch him again. Brandi and I watch from the top of the stairs..There was a moment when we started to go down but heard another scream so we ran back up again. Finally the chipmunk is caught but at this point its like 1:30 and everyone is wide awake from all the excitement. The kids wanted to open gifts then because at some point Santa had already come and gone. He is obviously alot quieter then our friend Theodore. Everyone finally did go back to sleep and waited until christmas morning to open gifts.
I have to wonder what i would have done if our little man was already here with us. Would I have grabbed him on my way out the door?? I would like to think that i'm a good mom to be and would have saved my child first but honestly people I dont really know. I love squirrels and chipmunks but not so much when they are indoors and racing around on the bed that just minutes ago i was sleeping in. If only someone had thought to take out the video camara these are the stories we will laugh about for years to come.

don't worry, you would have grabbed Noah because your screaming would have woken him up!

It will take at least a week if not longer to get results back! I'm not sure if we'll get another request to have his prints done again...or if we'll just keep waiting and then one day our FDL will magically appear. But I'll keep everyone posted!
