Christmas 2008

I love Christmas! I really enjoyed being a parent at Christmas. Its amazing to see everything from such young eyes and experiencing it all over again. We had a very fun Christmas. Our celebrations started off Christmas eve. We actually don't really do anything on Christmas eve usually, but we went to my parents and had Chinese food and hung out. My mom decided and she wanted the kids to open a present from them, and I am so happy that she did. Bridget ended up getting sick the next day so we were able to get some pics and have some fun present opening before so pooped out. Ethan got a bird that had a string so we could walk around the house pulling it. He used it a little different, but he loves to drag it all around. Bridget got a bouncing Tigger that played music. She wanst quite sure about it, but it cracked us up.

Bridget's face is priceless, its like "What is this thing doing?"
Opening the presents it always the best part. The paper is usually the most amusing thing, right?

Christmas morning started off a little rough. Bridget has gotten sick and threw up a few times first thing. We started the morning with a fun bath! They had a great time playing, splishing and splashing as we played Christmas music and sang songs. Bridget did end up getting two more baths throughout that day, but this was a fun one :)
After baths we headed over to my parents from presents. Bridget stayed mostly like this for the rest of the day. She was very cute and cuddly. since it was crazy and there was lots to go and open we didn't really get much pictures of the morning so I was very happy to have the ones from the night before. We ended up with lots of goodies. I got an Ipod touch and some speakers for it and lots of music. Joseph got golf clubs, a golf, bag and golf shoes (hmm, does he like golf?), Ethan and Bridget got lots of fun toys and books to read.

After the present came dinner! An amazing meal made by my mom. My Aunt Lori and her family all came to enjoy it with us. We all draw names and have a gift exchange after dinner.

Ethan is awesome in his BYU jersey. He also got a little football to go with it. And then the real fun began with all the wrapping paper everywhere.

When we were too tired to open our eyes, then it was time to go home and remember all
the fun we had at Christmas.

Oh how sad that Bridget was sick on Christmas! It is so hard when they are not feeling well, but kinda fun because they are so cuddly. I hope it was a Merry Christmas for you! Happy New Year!

So sad for poor Bridget! I'm glad she had a little celebration the night before. Who know Christmas could be more fun that it already is. Yay for cute kids that make it even better!
