Talk about a WHITE Christmas! Well, we were homebound for Christmas this year. It was quite bittersweet. It was nice to snuggle up with the family and enjoy our time together...but, that meant that we were unable to make it out for Church on Christmas Eve (cancelled anyways) or to my grandparents on Christmas Day for lunch. And, since we were planning on heading to Cozad Christmas day too, I really didn't have any food for us! Oh well, we managed just fine! We were able to wade our way out of the house the day after Christmas to get over to the Koch's. We enjoyed an evening of time with friends and Wii...which Emma LOVED. Now, I should have never played it because now I want one!!! Maybe after Christmas we can look into getting one. We definitely all had fun!
Here is Emma on Christmas Night ready to go out in the snow!
The kids had a great Christmas morning. Santa brought them EVERYTHING that they wanted. Adam, trying to be nice (and, lets be honest a big kid himself) forgot to wake me when Emma got up, so I missed seeing her face when she saw what Santa brought....a HANDY MANNY TOOL BENCH (of course)!!! And, unfortunately he didn't turn the light on when he was video taping it, so you couldn't see it. What a bummer. To say I was a bit disappointed was an understatement. There were no pictures of her discovery either. Poo! I did appreciate getting to sleep in, but would have rather gotten up to see the huge smile on her face when she saw what she had asked for. Kaden did so great opening his gifts as well! He really got into tearing the paper (when Emma allowed him). He had too many gifts and quite frankly got bored too quickly. But, Emma was happy to continue helping him out with his packages. After unwrapping gifts, we were able to play with and enjoy them, since we were obviously not leaving in the blizzard!
