Well, this weekend was Christmas. We started it out going to my moms on Christmas Eve and spending some time with her, my dad, my brother and his family. We had a great visit, but it always goes way too fast. Here is this years family photo. It's minus a few people, but they were in our hearts.
We have a tradition in our house that we get to open one present on Christmas Eve. It's always pajamas. I have so much fun finding the pajamas for the kids each year. Here is this years:

|Tennyson and Caiden|
We woke up this morning to find that Santa Claus had visited our home as well. Spent a little bit with the kids, watching them open their presents, and then I headed into work. What I had hoped would be a 2 hour shift, turned into much, much, longer. When I finally got home, the kids and I spent some time playing with the sculpting clay that Santa brought them, watched a few movies, and are finally turning in for the night. It's been a long day, and we still have a long week ahead of us. Double shifts at work tomorrow, and Tuesday we head back to Angola for our last "family" Christmas of the season. Donna always gets us a hotel room, and we are looking forward to not only spending some time with the family, which is the best part, but also swimming, and a few runs down the toboggan slide at Pokagon. I love that State Park, and it feels like a second home to us, so we are always excited to head back.
I will leave you with one last Family Christmas photo, just because it has us all cracking up. This about sums up our family.
