Christmas 2012

Is it over already?  It always goes way too fast!  It was a wonderful Christmas and I'm so glad I had yesterday off to rest and relax.  Now it is back to work for a couple of days before another break!

Christmas Eve we did our usual - Chinese food at Allan's house.  He even bought me Pear Magners (and just in case you were wondering Irish cider and Chinese food go great together)!

Unfortunately my Tim, Jenn, Peyton and Ella couldn't make it due to sickness.  We missed them!

Annual family photo

 I gave Peyton and Ella princess dresses.  I knew they were a big hit when they wanted to put them on immediately.  But I would have to say I was out done by Uncle Scott. . . 

He gets the "award" for giving the favorite gift.  He gave Ella the Doggy Doo game.  Oh yes you read that right.  Want to know the funniest part - Ella knew what it was!  Ha!  Basically you put some play dough like substance into the dogs mouth, squeeze the lease, and yes he poops!  The girls LOVED it and as you can see from the outfit changes they played it multiple times.  Too funny!!

 The Yankee Swap was really fun this year.  For some reason there was a lot more "stealing" than usual.  One popular gift was the tissue box filled w/ money.  Peyton and Ella thought it was pretty funny when it got stolen.  Peyton was guarding it pretty well!

All in all it was a wonderful Christmas.  We ate, drank and ate some more.  Peyton and Ella seemed to open gifts all day and had tons of fun despite being sick. 

Oh and don't worry.  Auntie Jodi didn't forget Neely. . .

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  

Now onto New Year's!!!
