Wonderful Christmas!

We had such a wonderful Christmas! This time of year is always so busy, and with both our families so close, we try to divide our time between them. We had Christmas Eve day with my family and Christmas Eve night with Pat's. Then Christmas Day was all ours!! Here are some highlights:

  • We got to fill stockings with food and essentials for orphans in Mexico (thanks Mom, what a great way to feel the spirit of Christmas).
  • We did the traditional $1 store gift exchange! Always a hit.
  • The cousins put on a little Christmas program about all the things we are grateful for (that spells out Christmas, too cute!)
  • There was a Nerf War in Eagle Mountain and it helped pass the time until midnight when we opened gifts.
  • Wolfie enjoyed all the festivities! (We still can't leave him for too long.)
  • We told the kids not to wake up before 9 a.m. and at exactly 9:01, Lukas came bursting in our room to see if Santa came!
  • Even though the kids were good this year, they got a "bunk" of coal in their stockings (it was really just chocolate covered in black foil).
  • We got a Wii for Christmas and spent most of the day trying it out. Wii love it!
  • We went to the dollar movies Christmas day to see "Astro Boy".

How fun. I love the boys PJ's and your puppy is just adorable.

Dude, you have more games with that Wii already than we have and we have had ours for almost 2 years! If you don't have them, Rex loves the Lego games. Lego Star Wars, Lego Batman and Lego Indiana Jones.
