Whew, I've really been slacking blog-wise lately and that was weighing on me!
We had a great Christmas! We started the day off with Santa gifts and opened all of our gifts. I made fresh blueberry cakes(muffins) to which we sang "Happy Birthday Jesus" and blew out pretend candles(2008 of them would not fit on the cakes, I considered trying it until I realized we were birthday candle-less). We then played with all of our plunder while watching the parade and then took naps. Upon waking we headed to the beach and played there for a bit. We came home and had a simple dinner, played some more and headed to bed. We had our Christmas dinner on Friday and it was delicious! A very laid back, cozy weekend for a laid back, cozy family! I hope everyone else had a wonderful Holiday!
Fast forward to tonight: A cute "Collin-ism" for you. After getting out of our evening bath, we always ask what color towel they want(It's always the same color.). Tonight Collin replied, "I saaaaid YELLOW!" In this gruff little man voice. Of course I died laughing and had him repeat it for Dove about 50 times. Probably not the best thing to teach him, but I'm guessing he learned it from Mommy saying, I said No. This has nothing to do with the above paragraph, but it was too funny not to share.
I will get some Christmas pics up soon. I hope everyone is happy, and well. Have a wonderful last few days of 2008!
