Well, we actually pulled it off. For awhile, I wasn’t sure if we’d be ready for Christmas, or if we’d have a nice Christmas because of all the “stuff” we had to do. But, in the end, everything was done, everything was wrapped (thanks to my brother and sister-in-law who stayed up late with us one night to help), and we all had a great Christmas.
Like every year, we had a few celebrations. We celebrated with my family on the 23rd, we had our own family celebration Christmas morning. Then we went over to my inlaw’s house and celebrated with them later that morning. And finally, we had a celebration with my Father-in-law’s siblings and their families later that afternoon.
Here are some pictures from the celebration with my family…

The boys got some awesome gifts. They are definitely spoiled. So far, Buddy’s favorite present was his Xbox 360 Kinect and Buster is really enjoying his Nintendo 3DS.
Jdaddy got me a Kindle, so I finally feel like I’m up-to-date with technology. I received several other nice gifts as well. I’m truly blessed.
Oh, and I finally got my act together and finished Buster’s 5th year photo show. Here it is:
