Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family! If you haven't received a card from me, I am still sending them out (I guess I am still on Hawaiian time). I hope your Christmas was as delightful as ours. Here is a list of some of the highlights of this year:

1. We spent Christmas Eve with my parents, long time family friends and their grandchildren. Not only did we prepare enough food to feed 100 hungry elves, but one of our guests brought caramel, dark chocolate, white chocolate and nut covered granny smith apples...yum, yum, yum. After pulling our Christmas Crackers, and stuffing ourselves, we played a rousing game of Christmas inspired white board Jeopardy! We ended the evening by reading the New Testament Account of the birth of Jesus and singing some good ole' Christmas songs in a confused harmony.

2. We spent the Christmas Eve night at my parents home for many reasons:
a. We don't have a chimney on our home so obviously Santa would have a hard time bringing gifts to our new home.
b. our trash bin is loaded with remodeling trash; thus, there is no room for wrapping paper and box trash.
c. Grandma makes cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning...'bake it and they will come'
d. Grandpa has a PS2

3. Santa came late last night and the boys actually could hear the ringing bells of his sleigh!

4. Grandma woke everyone up a little after 6am!

5. Santa brought Heelys (spelling?) for George and a Bike for Henry...unfortunately this caused a great shedding of tears by the younger because he also wanted Heelys. Santa left a message trying to explain that they do not make Heelys in Henry's size, but Henry, so overcome with little sleep and the emotion of the day, could not understand why Santa did not just make them his size!

6. After many months without a DVD Player because the salty air of Hawaii corroded our less than 1 year old expensive Sony player/recorder, Santa so kindly took pity on our DVD-less family and delivered a new one!!!

7. Word to the Wise: Don't feed your dog Ham...ewwww Gross Dog Farts!

8. The rest of the day went something like: Sleep, Eat, Play!

I hope your Holiday was as joyful as ours. At this time of year, we want you to know how much we love you and appreciate your friendships!

Oh I miss Henry and George moments. Sounds like you guys had alot of fun. Hope all is well now and everything is sorted out with Santa bringing Heelys for George and a bike for Henry. I'm also happy to know that you have a new dvd player. You can watch all your reality shows and Lost. ha, ha, ha...

Have a good week. Dont forget to catch Moana's performance at the Assembly Hall at Temple Square New Years Eve. I think they go on at 8:30 for 45 minutes.

Have a warm day. Hugs to the boys for me.
