Christmas Rounds 2 & 3

Bill and I are so blessed to have family right nearby who love us (and spoil our children!) It makes the holidays that much more special to be able to spend time with everyone!  We went up to Grandma and Grandpa Houston's for brunch (Grandma made egg puff of course! and presents with them and Anna, Ed and Nic.  We got spoiled and had another round of great gifts to open and share. 

 Later in the day my Mom and Dad and Em, Kurt, Kaleb and Jayson came over to do Christmas round 3!  The kids got even more stuff, and were thankfully not too overwhelmed so everyone was appreciative and managed to keep it together!  Billy was very glad to get to show off his rats to the other boys!  I got some cool gift including the wireless printer I wanted!

Em and Kurt took the boys home (Jay had a bad cough) and then the rest of us went to Anna and Ed's for a big dinner.  It was a great day, but man was I ever tired after all of it!  Wes had never napped, and finally crashed (we borrowed a ba-ba) while the kids played on Auntie's new kinect.  Bill wasn't feeling too great, so we came home about 9 to crash.  The big kids were up much later laughing and playing upstairs with the rats.  I think all would agree that it was a great day!    


  1. Fun to see the pics, but where is a picture of that incredible gift from Bill???
