OK so I still don't have a camera to take and post pictures but we are getting one... soon! We had a very fun and crazy Christmas. It was wonderful and tiring and busy and relaxing all in one. Jason sister Robin and her family came to stay at our house which was very fun. Tolson loved having "friends" at our house everyday. He was very sad this morning when he woke up and they were not here and their stuff was all gone too. It really made me appreciate our house and what a great blessing it is. We had Christmas eve at Jason's moms house and had a great time with almost all of his family, everyone was there except one family. : ( We then brought the kids home and put them to bed (late of course) and then we back to moms for the fun wrapping and assembling frenzy that takes place every Christmas eve. WE then got to bed about 1:30 and didn't get up until about 9 when we actually woke Tolson up to open presents. My parents came over to enjoy the joy of Christmas with children and then we had breakfast. we then just hung around for a few hours and then went up to my parents to spend Christmas Day. It again was crazy with small children and lots of food, and again we got to bed late. Saturday was a bit slower but Jason got up early to go play paintball with a bunch of the guys in the family and good friends. I hung out with my sisters and the kids played most of the day. then again on Sunday we went back to Jason's mom's house for Birthday parties. There are four birthdays in his family within a day or two of Christmas. we had a great time and again got to bed late. By Monday I was so exhausted I went to bed at 9pm and slept for 12 hours!!!!!
We had a wonderful time with family and friends and really enjoyed having Christmas morning with just our little family (Grandma and Grandpa were an added bonus) we enjoyed the real Christmas spirit with out little Christmas program on Christmas eve and enjoyed the love shared between siblings and cousins. We are so grateful for all those in our life that bring us so much joy and peace. We are grateful for friends that we include in our family and for family that we count as friends. We are grateful for the Savior and all that his life means to ours.
I truly hope that you have enjoyed that crazy holiday season as much as we have and hope that your New Year will be amazingly blessed!!!!!
