Christmas Eve and Christmas


We always miss our family when we don't travel for the Holidays but we had a good time this year! For Christmas Eve we went to our neighbor's house for their traditional fondue. It was so delicious and fun! After dinner we acted out the nativity, everyone had parts and costumes and it was great! Then we each got to open one gift!! We had so much fun, thanks guys!! We came home and set out some cookies and milk for Santa and oats for the reindeer (we were out of carrots), put the kids to bed and stayed up until 4 in the morning wrapping and putting together presents-namely the kitchen from Papa & Grammie which had 46 steps in the instruction manual, what were we thinking!! The kids had so much fun Christmas morning and loved all of their gifts, thank you to everyone!! J and I got to have a little nap-ok, mine was longer than his, he let me sleep for my b-day which is a perfect gift for me!! For dinner we had friends over for a baked potato bar and it was yummy!! We had such a wonderful holiday and hope you all did too!!

Hello there!! I found a link to your blog on Stephenson's and had to come say hi! Your family has grown up so much! Your kids are just beautiful! Dan and I have wondered how you guys were doing and were sad to have lost touch. I'm so glad you have a blog and hope you don't mind if we keep up with you now! :)

Emma got a kitchen too but the neighbors had it stored at their place and like 2 nights before Christmas we set it up it did take forever but then we started to play with it it was a blast I think we enjoyed it more then the kids.
