Christmas was absolutely wonderful.  We spent some time the weekend before Christmas downtown at the Holiday Village.  Surae and Graham love that carousel.

On Christmas Eve night, we went to Andrew and Kelly’s house, and had a wondeful time.  Dinner was delicious and it is always so much fun to watch the kids play together.  The kids all looked beautiful in their Christmas clothes.  They are a cute bunch of kiddos!

The kids got to bed late because of being out for Christmas Eve dinner, so they actually slept in a bit.  We didn’t get downstairs until close to 9!!  Graham was so excited.  Surae was great too and really enjoyed opening her presents.

Last year, Surae was really sick on Christmas Eve and Christmas day and had only been home for about a month and a half.  Christmas was pretty much overwhelming for her last year.  So, needless to say, Christmas this year, was a whole different story.  She had a great time.  Surae feels so immensely more comfortable now and it is really showing with her interactions with others.  My brother, Chris, spent a lot of time with us over the holiday and she really adores him.  She climbs all over him and gives him kisses.  It is great to see her loving on her uncle!!   Of course, Graham loves Chris too due to his common interest in Star Wars, action figures, legos, and transformers.  Can’t ask for more than that in an uncle!

My dad and his girlfriend, Roni, came over as well as Michael’s parents.  We had a full house all day, but it was so much fun and the kids loved seeing everyone.  We are so thankful to have our whole family so close by, so that we can all spend time together with relative ease.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas too!
