December Recap

OK, I am finally doing this. I don't know why I put it off so long or even why I feel obligated to do it. At any rate, here was our December.

It was mostly uneventful really. Nate was working on his projects as always and we actually got a lot of things accomplished before the holiday. I didn't take as many photos as I would have liked, but what can you do? The girls loved everything Christmassy. We went around to the lights around Bakes and it was pretty fun. We had lots of snow the week before and the girls had lots of fun playing in it and having "snow bites" (I have some pictures somewhere, but I haven't gone through them yet!)

Christmas came and went pretty quickly, as usual. Christmas eve was spent cleaning and then going to the McG Christmas party. It was much quieter than last year, not all of the children were there! Then we drove home through the rain and fog and had our traditional homemade Chinese food fest with my family. Then we read the Christmas story and went to bed. Well, I played Santa a bit before bed!

I think the biggest difference this year was that Cecily had an idea of who Santa was and she was totally shocked to discover all of the presents he had left her! She was a bit taken aback at first. Then, we did stockings and breakfast at Kirsten's. Next, everyone came to my parents' and did the big present unwrapping. As that was ending it started to snow! We left as it was coming down quite a bit. Then we had the big H family dinner at my in-laws. Most of them were there, I even my the elusive cousin Heather! I had to keep checking in to see if we would be able to drive home that night. I discovered that much of T-town had no power. We were able to return safely and without too much trouble, thankfully!

A couple days later, Leigh and Eliza visited and that was a lot of fun. New Years we spent at Kirsten's making caramel popcorn and playing games.

Then, Melanie and family came down and we had a second Christmas with them. It was a bit of a whirlwind, but when are the holidays not?

Here's a slideshow, I don't feel like copying and pasting codes at the moment!

Yay for Christmas. It was good to see you guys for a quick minute at the H family party. I love that Heather's the elusive cousin. I think she says the same about you... haha

Fun pics! I was just telling Matt yesterday that I'm looking forward to Christmas again so that I can finally have the S family Christmas experience.

Yeah, I am already looking forward to next Christmas!

Sarah- Hopefully it will be less than 5+ years before I see Heather again.
