Well, we are on our way to our first Christmas holiday at our own house. It's strange because in ten years of marriage we have never celebrated Christmas at our home. Sam and Jo have never had a Christmas morning at their own house. It wasn't really our choice to stay this year but we are trying to make the best of it and find some special ways to celebrate.
It started today with going to dinner with Amanda and Steve...Matt's sister and brother-in-law. They get all dressed up on Christmas Eve and eat at a fancy place and this year they treated us! It was really nice and festive. Here are some pics from the evening...
(Amelia saying "Ho, Ho, Ho!")
After dinner, we all headed back to Amanda's to eat the treats that I made yesterday for the neighborhood.
So, the boys are in utter glee, awaiting the present time and snuggled in for a "sleep out" (that's what we call being able to sleep out in the living room in sleeping bags) and watching "The Nightmare before Christmas".
Matt is happy because Amanda made him homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast...
And, I am happy because I've made it through another year with my family!
