I know it is ridiculously overdue, but I debated abandoning this old blog but kept feeling like I ought to come back to it. So now the catch up. First Christmas (it’s a long one).
Our traditional Christmas Breakfast (at dinnertime) was delicious. Fried oysters, fried apples, fried potatoes – are you catching on? Yum.
Christmas Eve pageant with cousins:
Christmas morning before the kids are allowed in:
The video this year was great but I don’t want to learn how to post it. The kids get to come in one at a time. Grace was first in and then Ryan who fell on the floor (of course) when he saw his Millennium Falcon but when he saw Noah’s HP Legos he started yelling “Oh Noah! Oh Noah!” And then I accidently shut Gwen’s head in the door, teasing her about not getting to come in. Luckily she didn’t get too hurt and she was so excited that she forgot. Oops. The fun that followed:
Trying out the new Wii game.
This potty hasn’t gotten much use since Christmas morning.
Our cousins from Idaho sent us the best present. A box full of gingerbread house pieces and candy to decorate along with directions and tips. The Sunday after Christmas we had a snow storm and church was cancelled and this was a perfect addition to our snow day. We were supposed to send them pictures of our completed houses. Better late than never :).
