Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had as wonderful a day as we did. Everything was perfect - that being said, we did really miss our extended families. The kids had a great time. I think it was the first year that we didn't have to stop in the middle so someone could go take a nap! They all made it through all the gifts and played all day. Emmy was the only one who slept at nap time so they were all really ready for bed tonight! Thank you so much to everyone who sent gifts - the kids loved everything and it truly was a special day!

When Emmy saw this picture she said that the camera caught her face - what a funny way to put it!Red Velvet cake - we'd never had it before and it's a big deal around here. Since it's red for Christmas I decided to give it a try - it was really yummy!
