We had a great Christmas season this year. It was however a little different this year. Jeff's parents couldn't come down from Rexburg. We missed them a LOT!!! And Brad and Mel moved to Provo, and she was days away from having her baby, so they couldn't travel either. We missed you guys!!!!
We had Christmas Eve dinner at our house. My mom and brother and his girlfriend came, the Browns, McMillans, Greg, and Steph all came also. It was a lot of fun. We ate REALLY YUMMY food. (sorry Amy, maybe we'll go back to the traditional pizza next year-we'll see) We then had a Christmas lesson, and then it was off to Rockband for the rest of the night.
This year, Jeff and I also carried over his family's tradition, of doing brother/sister gifts. We had our kids draw names, and took them shopping. They had a lot of fun doing that. They thought that was so cool!!! I was glad we did it, and am excited to continue that.
Jeff was up around 6:30-7 and woke me up around 7:30. We then HAD to go and WAKE OUR KIDS UP at 8:00am!!!! Appearently, our kids need a lot of sleep, even on Christmas morning. Santa was really good to them this year. Drazen and Braxton got a ping pong table. Braxton also got a skateboard, and Drazen got a lot of clothes. (what else does a 13 year old ask for). Carlee got a membership at Browns Gymnastics (that is all she wanted), some clothes, boots, games for her DS, movie, etc. Katie's Christmas letter to Santa, consisted of a Nintendo DS, "skittles" lipgloss, a baby, "Gabriella" Barbie, and a game for her DS. That was the easiest letter I ever saw. I couldn't believe it. So that is what she got. She also got a movie, A LOT of lip stuff and pretend make up, and a tea set.............
