I started off the weekend feeling sick. I was having trouble working so I went home and went right to sleep. I slept for like 3 hours and then stayed in bed until Heath came home and got me up. I was hungry and half asleep and we ran to Costco for a big cart full of stuff and some food. Then we ran around getting the kids and roommates and Hanukkah party supplies . Then we went to Jon and Briana’s house for a party.
They had made all sorts of great Hanukkah food and we had a great meal with friends. Jeremy was the only Jewish one but fortunately he knew how it all goes and showed us.
After celebrating the kids played dress up and we played board games. I was feeling pretty beat and the kids were tired so we headed out first and got to bed.
I had a good night of sleep. Saturday morning the girls helped me make biscuits.
Heath and Shin went shopping and the girls and I got the house all cleaned up and they laid down for early naps. Then we went to Rachel and Alex’s house for Christmas.
There were lots of snacks and family. We got to visit with everyone and the kids got a ton of presents.
We loaded up a giant box of great stuff and headed to the next Christmas. Heath and Shin tried a little more shopping on the way but didn’t find what they wanted.
We got to Nana K’s house just in time to help get dinner ready.
While it was cooking we did some family pictures.
We were all hungry and got busy eating.
We ate our fill then got to the presents.
We did all the kids stuff first adn then let them play and we opened the adults presents.
It was a really nice Christmas but it got late and we headed home after the presents and got the kids and us in bed.
In the morning the girls made gingerbread cookies.
And played with new toys.
After noon we all got dressed up and headed out to Heath’s Uncle David’s for Mexican lunch and another Christmas.
Peanut’s dad brought him out for us and Heath’s sister brought her 2 week old baby.
It was a full day of eating and hanging out with a giant family.
And then Santa came.
He passed out a present to all the kids.
Santa left ans we hung out some more and the kids played with their toys and spent some more time with baby Carolina.
We hung out for another hour or so and I had another plate of Mexican and dessert and then we headed home. We took Peanut home and picked up some stuff we left at my mom’s and then went home. We put the girls right to bed and then Heath and I wrapped presents for an hour before going to bed ourselves.
