Best Christmas of the Year

Winter is a busy time of year for us. Between Kate's birthday, Thanksgiving, Bowl Week, Christmas, Kate's dad's birthday, New Year's, our anniversary, and my birthday, life can really wear you out.

Christmas was great this year. We spent three days at Kate's parent's and enjoyed the break from the daily grind. It was nice having Christmas on a Sunday; we went to church that morning and that kind of set the tone for the rest of the day. It made it more about Christ and less about gifts. Of course, Ryley and Ben made out like bandits. I am still tripping over new Dora the Explorer stuff that I don't recognize. Brent and Amanda made the day with Ben's puppets (bravo, Brent, bravo... Ryley loves the puppets, too). It was nice to say the least.

We still regret that we missed the New Year's shenanigans in SV, especially since so many people were in town for Sam's wedding. I guess we will have to make up for it next year!
