We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We certainly did. C says that "Santa must be very polite since he got me everything I wanted." I guess we got that one right. K is so scared of Jolly Ol' St Nick that the idea that he was in our house to bring presents scared her so much that she clung onto Jana's neck and wouldn't even open presents until she saw that C was getting new toys. I think they were both very happy with their new additions and will be entertained for at least a day or so. C got the Leapster that he wanted and K got not 1, but 2 new babies. She has really become a little girl, toting around her baby dolls everywhere she goes.
We left on Thursday for the 8 hour drive home to see family in Virginia. We had the "opportunity" to get the whole family together to do family portraits this morning. That is always quite a joy. I am glad we only do it every 2 years.
