I didn't do a traditional Christmas post this year, what with the traveling to Vegas and what not. I also didn't take many pix, or blog much...I just was present in the moment and absorbed it all in. Besides, exactly how many pictures of the top of the kids' heads opening gifts do I need?
Holiday in review-
my neice Isabelle reluctantly wearing the hat I knit for her.
I had better luck with Emma & Olivia. I give up on the perfect picture in my mind of the five of them wearing their hats. Not gonna happen.
Em & Bart. Yes, she is wearing a bathing suit. We were getting ready to hot tub.
Em & Ev putting together their icoaster. It's a magnetic marble track that you can hook up to an MP3 player. Very cool.
Mom & Ev taking a reading break. Not content to sit near me, he has to sit on me.
woo-hoo...we got iPod Nanos!!!!
our tree, before the presents were attacked.
Ev & Grammy Sandy
Bart, Emma & Uncle Greg on Christmas Eve.
I really was lazy as far as pictures go. And you don't notice it until after the moment is gone for good, and you can't get it back. I meant to get many more people pix, but I didn't.
The kids got a ton of great gifts (big surprise there) even though everyone is scaling back.
They both totally dig their iPods and spend every waking moment with them in their ears. Evan has a slew of new Wii games that he has been playing non-stop. Bart's been working on some home projects that he's wanted to get to for awhile, & I have been reading, knitting, & sleeping in. well, I have also been doing constant laundry, picking up after kids, & cleaning the kitchen but those things aren't fun to talk about! I'm counting the days until school starts again.
Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!
