Wonderful Christmastime!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas 2008!  Though overshadowed early in the week by lot's of sickness in my family, everyone was well enough to celebrate by Christmas Eve! I was so relieved that we didn't have to "cancel Christmas." Jeremy did have to work both nights, which meant he had to sleep most of yesterday away, which was kind of a bummer. 

Once he got up we opened our presents to each other (and for the puppies) and then headed over to Lauren & Rich's for our gift exchange and dinner. I always love spending time with my family...and those two precious kiddos make Christmas even more fun. Livvie was so into opening presents this year. When we got there on Christmas eve the first words she spoke were, "We gonna open presents?!" And we told her, "Not yet, but soon!" "OK!" she'd say. And of course she loves her "Jernomy," which is always fun to see.  (Pictures of the whole shebang coming soon.)

I hauled in an impressive amount of Christmas loot, including many pairs of new, comfy P.J.'s.  Lauren and Rich gave me the Storybook & Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridges I've been wanting....which is super! I'm hoping they'll give me a new burst of inspiration to get me back into my Scrapbook room. :)  Jeremy gave me the Jillian Michael's Fitness "game" for my Wii Fit. It has new exercises you can use the Wii Balance Board with so I'm excited to test that out. And my Mom and Dad have supplied me with the funds to do some after Christmas shopping, which is great because I could really use some new jeans. *haha* 

Last night I watched "Prancer" on TV after Jeremy went to work. I remember seeing it in the theater when it first came out when I was 6 years old. I don't know how it kept my attention at that age, though. It's a pretty sad, slow little movie! But I have to say I was kinda impressed by the little girl's acting. She was very believable!

Well I'm sorry that I still haven't finished posting about my NYC trip. I'll try to get the last few days up real soon!

Sounds like a wonderful Christmas! I know what you mean about the kids making it all so much fun. I just love to watch their faces when they open stuff!

Guess what? We got the kids a Wii for Christmas and my sis got them a Wii fit. Now I need to see how you like your new fitness game and see if I need one. So keep me posted on that!

Let's get together soon okay?
