Christmas 2009

Yeah, better late than never!  We went to St. George for the holiday and had a fun time.  Mikey was so excited come Christmas Eve that it took him forever to fall asleep.  I love the excitement of little kids as they start to understand the holidays. 

We hung up a picture of some random person’s ultrasound from Google and placed in on the grand kid wall of fame!  We will have grand kid #13 for Mike’s parents which means they need to buy more picture frames, because our picture is frame-less.  They were pretty excited for the news on Christmas morning and then became concerned with our vehicle situation- my car only holds 2 car seats.  Not to worry, the truck can hold 3!

We had a fun time with cousins and family and tons of presents and excitement.  They boys set up a choo choo train to go around Grandma’s tree just like the one at our house.  Between trains and new toys, they stayed busy for quite some time!

Christmas 2008

I just downloaded all the pics on my camera and I finally have time to sit down and blog again, yay!

The tree never got decorated.  There just wasn’t time really.  The Christmas train was enough for this happy bunch.   Mikey opened some Dominoes on Christmas Eve and helped Josh open a new high chair that straps to a regular chair.  Josh has  had 1 too many close encounters with the kitchen floor because he slides right out!  We spent Christmas in St. George with Mike’s family and it was so much fun to watch Mikey light up with excitement with every present.  Next year I need to remember to introduce my kiddos to Santa Claus.  They have never even seen the guy!  If you can’t tell from the pictures, Mikey really likes the movie Cars and he was spoiled from all the family!  Christmas is so much fun with kids this age.
