Christmas 2009

Christmas this year was memorable for all of us and definitely unforgettable with the weather, which I loved. We had an extended winter vacation, like most schools here and enjoyed every minute of it. Christmas Eve afternoon we loaded up and headed to Broken Arrow to Mimi and Papa's for pizza and gifts then we were going to go to Grannie's but those plans were postponed because of the blizzard. After having a ball at Mimi & Papa's we loaded up for our drive home, which normally takes about 40 minutes took us 2 1/2 hours with a few stops to clean wiper blades and a bathroom break we finally made it home to put too very tired boys to bed after we wrote a letter to Santa and set out cookies, milk and a coke and left reindeer food out the front door. The next morning we had so much fun watching them open their gifts and then I got started on our traditional family lunch. After Nic's nap we loaded up and went back to Mimi & Papa's and for more fun and food.

These are the gifts that Eli made at school for us, a great family treasure for years to come.

And presents from Mommy & Daddy.

Then on to their stockings and they had quite a few items in there. We had a wonderful Christmas season and hope you and your families did too.
