Christmas Eve we woke up, had brunch with Steve's family and then he and I took the girls and their cousins, Josh & Sydney sledding. We had a BLAST! Maggie went snowboarding for the first time and loved it - and she did a really good job too!!! Then we got ready and had a great time with Steve's whole family. It wasn't long and we were off on our way to spend the holiday with my Dad and Vicki which was great! Emma was so tired by the time that we got there that she wasn't really all about it but she snapped out of it pretty quickly.
Christmas morning we woke up bright and early and opened gifts that Santa brought and the girls couldn't have been happier. They each got a Nintendo DSi which has been a major hit (although Emma's had her's taken away twice now...), an iPad, games, clothes, barbies, puzzles and art supplies. Santa was very good to Mommy and Daddy too ... Steve got a food processor and I got a beautiful bracelet from Tiffany & Co. Life was good, right? Right! Next we were hustling to get ready to go to Carla's for Christmas Day. Once again, the girls had so much fun playing with their cousins and it was just a wonderful day.
And now, life as we know it can get back to normal. Monday morning school starts, everyone is back to work and by Wednesday I'm back on the road.
2010 has been pretty good to us ... I can only hope that 2011 is just as good, if not better!
