Merry Christmas!

Well, almost all of our Christmas celebrations are part of the past, we do have one more on Sunday -and they were all terrific. We got more gifts than we deserve and more food than we need, but it's all good! It always is a little sad, when the family leaves and the quiet seems so obvious and the tree so bare with no gifts underneath, but the memories are priceless. I decided to attempt another slide show to illustrate the highlights of our day, for instance, how much Ben LOVES Uncle Josh and denies the rest of us, while Ryder is in love with Emily, Greg LOVES his OU beanie (which he sleeps in) and Chad got an OSU one (wonder if he sleeps in his?), the kiddoes were in toy overload (we contributed our part to the annoying toys with pogo sticks and doll tubs that take real water), and we all needed a nap at the end of the day...









I leave you with my favorite picture, it says it all (maybe it just says "dazed and confused") - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

The empty tree always makes me sad too. I thought I was alone in that. Great pics, looks like you all had a really great time!
