It might be December 26 but we are still eating a lot of cookies, the living room looks like a tornado rolled through, and I am still on a holiday high. It seems like there should be another party tonite.
We had Carroll Christmas Eve at our place with lefsa and meatballs. It was like inviting Santa over for dinner. Soul and Rachel got us a new camera! I am so excited to have a cool camera to use for documenting these days that seem to be passing by ever so quickly.
With all of the fun and excitement we got a late start on bedtime. When it came time to set out some cookies for Santa, Finn felt as though he would rather eat the cookies himself. There were some tears. But we finally got them tucked in with the promise that when we woke up there would be stockings and presents. Then at 2am I hear from the other room "Finn! Get Up! It's Christmas!" All lights flip on and both boys come into our room. Leo is totally stoked and Finn is totally dazed. I am totally annoyed and Ben is totally asleep. The next wake up call came at 6am, at which point we could either get up or miss seeing the boys open gifts.
The biggest hits at our house were the bean bag chairs. Santa also brought binoculars, a stuffed cow, legos and a slinky.
One of the best parts of the day was a walk in the sunshine with Leo, we delivered Christmas cards to nearby friends. Christmas Day goes by too fast so I am choosing to celebrate now through New Years Eve.
How cute is this picture. Though not taken too long ago, think of all we have accomplished in the 8 months since girls weekend. 3 Babies were born! Ahhh... the miracles of life.
I just love getting together with the girls. I seriously doubt if I will be able to sneak away to Orcas Island this Spring, but I think it might be fun to bring a few babies along for a condensed version of girls weekend. Maybe we can do it at the beach house.
Until then, I cant wait to have a holiday craft and cocktail night with the girls (Heather included). I have Glitter Painting Fever right now. Love to you all!
