Merry Christmas!

We had a great Christmas this year. It was our first Christmas as a married couple and we had a great time. We spent this year with my family, having our traditional Jerusalem dinner, watching Luke II, playing the nativity game, and hunting for our pajamas. Ryan, Kara, Mark, Devin and I stayed up playing games and watching movies. Kara and I went to bed while the boys stayed up for a few more hours playing. My mom had to wake us up this year, which I think was the first time ever. We opened up a few presents with the people that were here and then we went to our house to open the rest of our presents. 
Here is our Christmas tree this year - thanks Nancy and John for letting us use it!


Devin really wanted a 22 this year, so he could go shooting with my dad and with John. So that was his big present. We also got to talk to Chelsee today for a few minutes, so that was fun.

After we got done opening up our presents, we went back over to my parents to do family presents with everyone and to eat some food and play some games. It was a great Christmas! I hope you all had a great Christmas as well!

Ha ha- ok i definitely had similar experiences as far as not waking up on Christmas... oh goodness- getting old is weird and kind of depressing. Regardless- Merry Christmas!

The 25! You know it is Jan 9th, right? You must be busy. James wanted a gun, your a better wife than I because he didn't get it, but he did get these basketball shoes that he really wanted, that were more expensive than any of my shoes. Well, I miss your comments, I guess I should blog more often. I hope you and Devin are doing good, we wish you all luck in 2009.
