Christmas 2008 (with pics)


We had Kaylee and Kenzie!! We had our celebration on Christmas Eve. The girls bought each other Christmas Jammies. (Hmm. I don't think I've ever written "jammies" before, maybe it's spelled "jammys"?) These pics are the girls in their jammies.



We decided celebrating the night before Christmas would be the most fun, since none of really qualify as morning people and we had places to go and people to see as early as we could manage. Here are pictures of their (mostly self-selected) Christmas gifts:

We watched Horton Hears a Who and Multiplicity on the two nights leading up to Christmas. That was fun. Kaylee picked Horton and Dennis got Multiplicity from his mom for Christmas.
We went over to Kenzie's other home so she (and Dennis, Kaylee, and I) could celebrate with them on Christmas Day. We opened more presents with them and then had a yummy brunch. (Brunch is my favorite mealtime of all.) We had a perfect time with all the girls and the family.
After Christmas Brunch we took off to Evanston for a prime rib dinner with my family. The weather was less than perfect traveling over to their house, but so worth having everyone together, even if just a few hours. Everyone but Jamie's family and Kenzie was there.
The ride home took 4 hours and we were all exhausted. My nieces Ariel and Cortney came home with us and we have spent the day playing board games and eating while Dennis went to work. It's been a very relaxing day.
