Christmas 2008

As usual, I wasn't too good at getting many pictures of the festivities, but here are a few.
Santa brought this basketball hoop for Ian. He totally loves it and he's pretty good too!Madeleine got a big girl bike. She loves it! We've taken her out to ride a few times and she's pretty good. Hopefully soon she'll want to lose the training wheels, but for now she is still kind of uneasy about the prospect of falling. I'm sure it won't be long before she's ready to take off the training wheels and leave us in the dust.
We took the kids to the dollar store so they could pick out gifts for each other and they had a lot of fun doing that. They both picked out flash lights and those may have been one of the top fave presents. They really loved all their presents. I am hoping that despite all the presents and talk of Santa leading up to Christmas they are absorbing the true meaning of Christmas.

After opening presents around 8:30, we had a nice big breakfast and lounged around till we went to see Bolt in the afternoon. We loved it! I thought it was hilarious and I am looking forward to adding it to our video library once it's out on DVD. After the movie we had a fun time on a Skype call with Spencer's parents. We missed not seeing them for the holidays this year, but we're planning to be able to see them for next Christmas for sure.

Hope you all had a great Christmas too!
