>We have had a very Merry Christmas so far! We celebrated Christmas Eve with Mike’s side of the family at our house this year. It was a good time had by all filled with too much food, a few drinks and many laughs. The kids got to bed late but fell asleep right away so the Santa duties could convene. The kids were happy with everything they got, so many that they will have new things to play with for a while. The tree looks quite empty right now but we still have one last Christmas to celebrate tomorrow with my side of the family. Today we are headed to Aunt Pat and Uncle Orlo’s house to eat more and spend some wonderful family time. We hope that everyone else has a fantastic Christmas!
