The kids love to pile in the same room on Christmas Eve so that they can wake up together for the magic of Christmas morning. There were a few bumps and tears as they were trying to all fit in the same room with mattresses, pillows, blankets, and all. But, they finally got it all figured out. They actually let us sleep in a little bit longer this time. I think we got up around 6:00 a.m. This year we had a very mild Christmas. The kids wanted to do a big trip together. So, our Christmas is our cruise! Which, by the way is in 75 days! We can not wait. The kids still enjoyed their morning. We opened gifts then went back to bed for a nap. It was quite nice. We also played games with the Huntington's and exchanged gifts. We had dinner with Lana's family and just enjoyed each other!
The next morning we had our annual day after Christmas breakfast with the Bird's and Huntington's. I love this tradition and can't believe I don't have a picture to show for it. It's a good time to be with friends and enjoy.
After breakfast we met up with family for some miniature golf and dinner at Golden Corral. We had a busy fun filled week. The second week we spent a lot of time at home relaxing, watching movies, doing puzzles, staying up late, and sleeping in! I'd say it was a success!
Ringing in the New Year was weird for us. Spencer and I were both sick, so we stayed home half sleeping, waiting to say, "Happy New Year" to each other. Ry went to his sisters' house and played games. Tanner was with friends. Kenz was also with friends', but came home pretty early considering the day. And Jo did the same. It just kind of felt strange. But, needless to say we have a lot of adventure awaiting us this year. I can't wait to see how it all unfolds.
