OK so no pictures yet but they are coming. We had a really great day.. The kids had a hard time sleeping last night and it was so cute because Riley goes mom I love Brody so much can I sleep in his bed with him tonight. SO they ended up in bed together but hey it helped them go to sleep faster. I don't understand it either. This year I am ready to have over it has been a very busy one for us. We just got home on the 18th of December from our 3rd trip back to Arizona. This time it was for more bad news on December 7th Robert and I were out on our weekly date and doing some Christmas shopping when we got a phone call from his mother letting us know that Roberts father had passed away. So we went over to be there for her and to help with the funeral and with some things she needed done. I really hope next year is a lot less eventful.
So anyway last night we started our little Christmas celebration with talking about the birth of Jesus Christ and the story in Luke 2 then we gave the kids there Christmas jammies and got them all into them then piled everyone into the car including Uncle Ethan (who decided last minute to come back to Texas with us. It has been a lot of fun having him here.) to go around and look at the lights. The kids where so excited its been a lot of fun to see how much more excited Brody at just 2 gets then Riley at that age we were the ones trying to get her excited and this year she is the one getting everyone excited. She is growing up so fast. This morning Santa had come and dropped off toys for everyone. We had fun looking and playing with them and then we were going to have German pancakes that my friend Ranee even put the recipe on her blog for me but I got out numbered and so we ended up making cinnamon rolls and hot cocoa it was good ill just have to try the pancakes another day maybe new years.
I am very grateful for my family it is so fun to have children that help me remember how great it is to have that excited wonderful giving feeling.
I hope everyone had a wonderful day with your friends and family.
