Christmas Morning

We had a great christmas and all got some pretty good things.

the kids did pretty good sharing their new toys

Jon did as well.

and of course Ashlee loved the paper more than the present itself.

Christmas Lights

We went to look at Christmas lights tonight. It has been a tradition the last few years to get some ice cream and coffee and drive around looking at the lights. They have an area called Pepper Drive where they have some pretty elaborate lights and yard decorations. Some of those houses are amazing. This year Andrew was so excited about it. He loved all the lights and couldn't get enough.

Christmas Program

Andrew's school christmas program was on Saturday. It was really cute. His class sang "Jingle Bells" and "Bells are Ringing", well they all stood there ringing their little bells. There were a lot of people there so when the kids got up I think they got stage fright because most of them didn't sing. It was cute anyway because they sure rang those bells.

Company Christmas Party

Jon's company Christmas Party was last Saturday. It was at the Hilton Bayside. The hotel was really nice it had just opened 4 days before the party so it was their opening weekend. The theme to the Christmas Party was Senior Prom so we got all dressed up. They gave us corsages and boutonnieres and took our Prom picture. We haven't gotten it back yet though.

I had to set the timer and run over for this one so It isn't the best but it turned out pretty good considering.

We had a great time. Jon's parents kept the kids all night so we were able to stay out late and not rush back to get kids home and in bed. The food was good and Jon even won best dancer. He got a lovely bag that says dance, dance, dance all over it with a little ballet slipper key chain. It was pretty funny. He said he felt gay carrying the bag through the lobby the next morning when we checked out so I offered to carry it for him. We also won a gift certificate to Jamba Juice. It was a great time.

Christmas Tree Decorating

We got our tree up and decorated last weekend. I can't believe Christmas is just a few weeks away. Now the challenge of keeping the kids out of it.
