And a Month Later...

I am finally getting around to Christmas! So I will keep this short and sweet. We had a great Christmas this year. And as every year goes, it came and went all too quickly! Zach was especially excited for the gifts portion of the festivities this year, no matter how many times we tried to remind him the real reason for the season. The big hits this year were the clone trooper costume, plasma cars and the homemade quilts from Grandma RaeLynn.

It is always fun to see who will be in town for Christmas every year, and this year Casey and his family decided to come into town. As much as it is crazy when all the cousins get together, it is also a fun time. Zach loves having so many cousins around and seems to disappear for hours playing when they are all around. We are hoping Kate learns to do the same but she is very much into her territorial stage of life, and likes to make what is hers known, in her ever so sweet and sassy ways to boot.

All in all it was a nice Christmas. My mom and siblings made some yummy food, and we had an over abundance of kids to role play in our annual nativity. Snow would have been nice, but then again we weren't freezing. Next year I am hoping to be more prepared so it won't go by so fast. SO much for short and sweet huh?

OK so I am laughing Zach and Trey are too much a like. They love so much of the same things from toys to sports! I love it. Such cute blankets! It makes me want to make one. They are so cute when they are all done. A lot of work, but so worth it!
