Christmas Fun

We had a really good Christmas... different than normal as we really missed our "normal" Washington Christmas traditions a lot. We missed Christmas Eve at Aunt Lisa's for the birthday bash, we missed having Christmas Eve and morning with Nana and Papa around for all their fun and laughs and we missed hanging out on Christmas Day with our extended family. We made the best of it here in RI though, had a great church service on Christmas Eve and then we were invited over to Mark's boss's house and had a really good time, felt very welcomed and the kids did really well in the midst of a very large and expensive "Christmas Village" that was set up around the entire living room... imagine Caleb in a china shop!

Christmas morning the boys were so fun... they loved everything and our puppy Shelby was on hand every moment to steal the wrapping paper and terrorize it! We went to the movies in the afternoon, Caleb wanted to see the "raining gumballs movie" (Bedtime stories) and it was a hoot!

Love to all and know that we sure missed you all this year!

Snow Day

We had a lot of fun playing outside in our snow this afternoon.. talk about a lot of snow! They do a great job of clearing the roads here... so far anyway. We are pretty glad we have a 4WD SUV though.. makes it worth paying the high gas prices this summer.
