We had a fantastic christmas morning as I hope you all did too. This year the tree was packed, more this year than I every remember it. Joe truly made out like a bandit, think the Grandma and Grandpas got a little crazy – though he was not complaining. His aunts and uncles chipped in their fair chunk too, not to mention everyone else (yes … including mom and dad).
Jeep from Uncle Kurt, Uncle Brendan, and Aunt Kari
Desk from Grandma Bev – “Do I have to do my homework now?”
Gift opening was interrupted by a visit from our local water park – rain clouds, we had winds kicking in gusts of rain through our screen … and Joe hauled Uncle Kurt out to enjoy the thrills.
Soaked to the bone we got changed, dried our carpets/blinds/etc from open windows, and returned to the presents.
Pull here and … poof … toys!
Grandpa walked off with a tool case
Grandma got some music
Kurt snagged an iDog … which Joe took a liking too
All-in-all, we all snagged plenty of sweet loot … too much to list here, but a big thank-you goes out to everyone. I am sure it will all get well used. That evening we all sat down as a family to enjoy our first family christmas dinner hosted by Melissa and I … turned out fantastic. And now I will be enjoying turkey for weeks to come … so bellies full, toys put away, we look to packing for G&Gs trip home. What a holiday … you really made this christmas one to remember. We are sorry you have to go.
Now, out to cruise for chicks
