Christmas 2010

Only a month late, that's not too bad.
We had a wonderful Christmas, with lots of family and fun. We spent Christmas eve at Chases parents house with some of the cousins, and grandma and grandpa. We had some delicious soup and salad for dinner, and just enjoyed everyones company. After all but the Lesters and Worners left, we opened our Christmas jammies and the babies opened their gifts from Kyle and Chiaki (Chases brother and his wife) as they were heading to Japan to visit Chiakis family on Christmas morning. After the babies went to bed and uncle Connor got home from work, the rest of us opened up the rest of our gifts. Some cash, a gift card to Olive Garden, a game, and hot chocolate smores kit. The adults played a few games and then it was home to sleep before Santa came.

Christmas morning was pretty relaxed. Chase, Owen and I slept in, and eventually got up around 8. I got breakfast in the oven, and we opened gifts as a little family. Owen got a book about Christmas, some treats, a sock monkey, and the little people farm. Chase got a Holga camera, lens and some film. I got the biggest surprise of all and was surprised to open a new Singer Futura sewing and embroidery machine.

After breakfast, we headed back to Chases parents house for brunch, and so Owen could open his gifts from his grandparents. He got a few toys, a book, and some new clothes.

Look it's a car toy

All in all we had a wonderful Christmas, and can't wait for Owen to get older and understand more. Hopefully we can keep in pretty low key and teach him the real meaning of the season. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and a happy New Year.

Smell ya later!

I can't get over how much Zade looks like his daddy. See you did get a picture of the funny smelly face.
