Our Christmas 2008

We had a great holiday with family. On Christmas Eve we went to Bob's grandparent's house. They were spoiled rotten with toys, books, and clothes galore.

On Christmas day, we got up and enjoyed some gift opening. After, we went to my sister's house. Again, they were spoiled by all. We stopped at Bob's sister's house on our way home. The kids did well with all the driving. We put them in the pj's before we left each night and TRANSFERRED them to the house when we got home. No problems--they were exhausted from all the excitement. Their favorite gifts so far have been a shopping cart with fake food, double stroller with twin dolls, Dora backpack, wind up cars, and a push toy. We still have a bunch in their boxes yet.

Sort of uncharacteristic for us but we took more video than pictures this year and the pictures I did take were blurry for some reason. I'm kind of bummed about that.

I have to say I had one of those "holy cow, they are growing up" moments this weekend. I saw my daughter grow up before my eyes the day after Christmas. She was wearing a purse (another new favorite gift) on one arm, and holding a cell phone up to her ear while trying to push the doll stroller. She's turning into a real girly girl. She loves to wear dresses and hear how pretty she looks. Oh boy!

Bob's been home with me these last few days and it has been nice having him around, but he went back to work today. At least I have New Years to look forward to.
