Our Holiday Adventures!!!!!!!

Thursday, December 25, 2008

Merry Christmas!!!!!!

Another Christmas down the chimney chute. Things got started last night with us online on the Santa Tracker (from NORAD) and followed by the family watching Mickey's "Once Upon a Christmas". Then it was off to bed for everyone. We ended up waking up around 9 a.m., a little later than we normally wake up but we figured the kids probably stayed up to see if they could hear Santa's sleigh.

We started off opening stockings, Santa's presents and lastley presents from the family. Everyone got what they wanted and more. We ended the session with some donuts and a talk about how important it is to give back this time of year. We ended up eating our Christmas dinner (ham) around 3p.m. We also had some green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes. The kids led off grace, something that Jordan has been wanting to do at every meal now. Pretty impressive for a 4 year old that doesn't go to church at all. He's figured it out pretty well though. After that, it's been the normal cleaning up, and getting acquainted with all the new toys and some phone calls from family.

We hope you all had a safe holiday and we want you ALL to know that you are all in our thoughts during this time of year.
