Christmas 2009

Twas the night before Christmas...

and the kids are wild as usual.

We did some Christmas crackers.

The morning pursuit of gifts. Looks who's first.

Building an airplane with Daddy.

Checking out the new LEGO set.

And modeling the new outfit Santa brought

New video games...

And new shirts from Nana and Papa.

And later that day we went to Uncle Marky's house for some Christmas dinner ... and Super Mario Bros. Wii...

Grandma and Grandpa were there and took the kids to their house for the rest of the weekend, while Brian and I got to return home for a weekend to ourselves.

A clean and quiet house. That's how I say Merry Christmas. We ran errands Saturday, getting accessories for our new iphones, went to see Sherlock Holmes and then went out to dinner. Church the next day was weird. I didn't quite know what to do with myself in the morning. Brian was gone for meetings as usual and I had only myself to get ready for church. Odd but refreshing.

By Monday, we missed the kids and were ready to meet Grandpa halfway to get them. They had all of their Christmas toys to discover and enjoy.

It's going to be a rainy day today. Hopefully those toys will keep them entertained most of the day.
