Christmas Day 2008
I worked Christmas Eve and rushed home to beat the boys up and apparently they were still waking up slowly by the time I got home, so it was time to unwind and open presents. Santa apparently is one smart man as Gavin got his hearts desire a:
This dinosaur follows commands, attacks, guards, burps and farts on command. He even answers simple questions and takes naps. Pretty cool!
Grandma Betty getting ready to open presents on Christmas Day.
Gavin's loot (ok except for the red pots behind him-- they are mine!)
Gavin playing with his D-Rex and bakugan's in his particularly full room!
Christmas Day night was spent with friends. Uncle Nate, Grandma Betty, Gavin and Rob probably playing Gavin's video game. Rob made Christmas dinner so I could take a nap before the nightly activities and we enjoyed one of our non-traditional meals of steak and crab legs. Finall figured out how to use a steamer that has been in the house for years and wow it was very easy to make the crab that way!

I know we were all good here!
Christmas Eve -- I was at work and the boys at home and the Christmas Day I hurried home to open presents with a very excited 5 year old! Afterwards, I slept a bit and Rob made dinner.
We enjoyed steak and crab legs. One of our friends, Nate, spent the day with us and after dinner the boys played some new video games and later some more of our friends arrived and we rocked out to Guitar Hero/Rock Band and had some chili. Boy was I tired when Gavin and I laid down around midnight! What a fun day!
There were some great presents!
I am presently (ok well very soon) am going to play with one of my favorites! I recieved a negative converter! It is awesome!! I am converting all of my trillions of old negatives to computer! I am having a great time remembering things!!!
I will post Christmas pictures soon!!! After I am done playing!!!

I just loved the bowtie on th Giraffe's neck!
We had a great time! No snow but chilly and cold with the wind. I encourage everyone that gets the chance to go! We made bags for the mountains lions that we colored and sprayed with mint. We colored cards for animals, made pinecone bird feeders out of honey and birdseed. Happy Holidays!!!
