So this is Christmas?

This was one of the strangest Christmas' I've had. Not bad, just different.

My brother and his family didn't come up this year; we saw them just two weeks ago at the Wedding Event of the Year. Still, it doesn't seem like Christmas if they aren't here.

Then we celebrated Christmas with my family on Christmas Eve, which felt odd. We woke the girls up at 6:30 to open presents before Bobby left for work. It was verrrryyyyyyy strange not having him around today! I dozed in the morning under my new ultrasoft, ultrawarm fuzzy blanket while the girls played with their gifts from Santa, Nintendo DS. Good call on Santa's part to bring two.

Then a good friend came and picked us up (couldn't get out of our driveway) and we ate lunch with them and played with their Santa gift--a Wii. Then we hooked their sled up to the four-wheeler and her husband took turns driving the kids through the snow in their yard.

Their daughter came home with us and is spending the night. I think they are still up at 10:40, but they are quiet.

It's just been a strange Christmas--not spending it with my family or my husband. I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow, as well as the video of Macy discovering her DS. That's pretty priceless.

Merry Christmas!

Your family is so precious. I am glad you are together even if the celebrations are a little spread out throughout the break. There is a new DS game over here too if we can share, just let me know.
