Christmas 2008




I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! Our Christmas went much smoother this year than in the past. First we went to our church's Christmas Eve service where I spent the whole time in the nursery with Jack (he's not quite ready to sit through a service). Then we went to my Grandma's for some pizza and lots of sweets! Once we got home we set out cookies and milk for Santa before the kids went to bed ( we ended up not telling them about Santa this year, hopefully next year we'll be stronger!) Christmas came early the next morning (6:30am to be exact!) The kids loved all their presents. Among all the gifts the kids had their favorites. Zaine got his own Buzz Lightyear doll & Buzz's enemy Zurg. Dylan got a beautiful new doll with her own crib (which they broke this evening!) And Jackson got his very own vacuum and remote control. After opening gifts here we headed over to my mom's for Christmas morning part 2. Keeping up with tradition Troy cooked everyone omelets then somehow between kids wrestling and running all over we opened presents. Last stop was at the Steiner's (Troy's parents) around 1:00pm. There we opened presents, ate treats & watched a movie. We got back home around 3:30 and we all took a family nap!

So overall we had a great Christmas! I hope you did too!
