The kids LOVED Christmas this year....it made it so much fun for us.
Larson has been asked a few times what his favorite gift was and without fail he has answered "Spiderman toothpaste", or "Spiderman mints". Easy to please, that kid!
We also spent time doing what it seems every other American family did this Christmas...playing the Wii.
We did have a brief bit of drama in our Christmas when on Christmas Eve, I wound up in the emergency room. Thankfully, the baby is fine, and I am fine, so after a brief stay I was sent home with strict resting orders. Our families were WONDERFUL as they basically babysat me & the children for a week!
Erik & Yuriko have even come over just to read bedtime stories to the kids! We are going to miss them when they leave!
Tech played Old Miss in the CottonBowl on the 2nd. Ryan, Preston, and Natalie all graduated from Tech, and Elizabeth goes to Old Miss, where Glenn also went back in the day! So, the game was a bit of a family affair.
We even got the Larson and the Files clans all together a few times!
And, we did what Linda, Lesley and I do best.....we went SHOPPING! Yes, I did say that I was on strict resting orders, but that didn't slow us down - we went ahead and rented the scooter for the Dillard's New Year's Day sale - complete with the loud BEEP!BEEP!BEEP! every time I had to back up.
Yes, I have pictures.
No, I will not post them.
It is always so fun to shop sales after Christmas, especially when the sales are better than we expected! We pretty much stayed in control of ourselves, unless you consider Lesley laying down a mannequin to take off the item of clothing that she needed 'out of control'. It was worth it...she got a great deal!
Hope you all have had a great start to 2009!
