"So Much Love .... on Saturday"

As you can clearly see...Will absolutely LOVES his "WeeChop." He told me just the other day, "Mommy, I love you and Daddy as much as I love my WeeChop." I took that as a BIG compliment.

I guess you could say that Santa was good to us this year... The boys had a GREAT time running around opening Christmas gifts and seeing what goodies Santa left for them! Will had a great time modeling all his new costumes and Dargan got exactly what he wanted----Chocolate Chapstick! Don't ask, it's a mystery why he likes it so... much. Will also enjoyed his new pirate legos and his new Sonic game for the Wii. After playing with our new toys for a few hours we headed over to the Grandparents house and the boys got to open more, more and more presents....The little guys literally fell into their beds at 9 pm tonight. From our family to yours-Merry Christmas!!!

Festival of Lights...

Our family enjoyed a night out at the Festival of Lights. A great time was had by all and it was even a little chill in the air for us! It was GREAT fun and a Family Tradition of ours...

I can sum up the way I feel right now from just a few of the past week's Christmas activities...pooped! I can't think of a better word at the moment b/c I'm so tired. Just got back today from a 3-day trip to see my family out in the country, then as soon as we got home and ate some lunch we headed back out to do the Festival of Lights. The boys loved it, but both of them were sound asleep in the car not even 5 minutes after we drove away. I had a very hard time staying awake too on the drive home. So thankful for such a wonderful husband that doesn't ever mind driving the whole gang around in our minivan... Thank goodness he's a nightowl and gets his 2nd wind at night or we may not have made it home. Hopefully I'll get some much needed sleep tonight and will be all better for Santa's visit tomorrow night. Sleeping with your 5 year old snuggled up right next to you (on the same pillow) and your 2 year old in a crib in the same room does NOT make for good sleep....
