Christmas has come and gone...

Now that the hustle and bustle of Christmas season is over, maybe I will find the time to update this more often!

We managed to survive a chaotic Thanksgiving/Christmas season that was liberally sprinkled with sickness throughout our house! Sean's had multiple bouts of strep throat, we've had a stomach virus run through us, and the odd sniffle and sneeze has blown by. Overall, we survived, and hopefully have come out into 2011 sickness free for awhile!!

Christmas was great this year! The kids are all getting older and SO much fun to watch them open presents this year! The beginning of Dec was of course the Christmas parade in town. The twins were far more interactive this year about it and it was adorable to watch them watching all the floats and dancers and such walk by! And they were thrilled by the "Ho Ho Ho" at the end of the parade!!

It wasn't long after the parade, that Kaelyn had her Christmas program for her school! She did so GREAT, singing the songs they had learned in school!

And then, before we knew it, it was Christmas time!! We had so much fun, David was off work for several days over the month of december and it was a wonderful month of memory making for us!!

Christmas eve had the kids opening their new christmas jammies, and a movie to watch! But the best, of course, was Christmas morning! Oh the fun they had opening presents!!

But the biggest, and bestest, surprise of all, was the SNOW we got right after Christmas!! How wonderful for the kids!!

The kids had such a blast in the snow...all except Rylee! She was scared of it or something, didn't want David to put her down the entire time we were outside! :( But the other kids had fun, they had a snowball fight, made snow angels, and Liam ran around going "choo choo" like a train all afternoon! We came in, made some hot chocolate, and enjoyed the lovely snowfall outside for the rest of the day!!
