Merry Christmas!!

What a great week we had. We were blessed to spend time with both sides of our families even though we did miss seeing our Aunts and Uncles. The boys made out like kings and we did not do to shabby either. Church was an experience with the twins. It was right at their dinner time on Christmas Eve and I felt like I was at a cow trough. I just had to keep on feeding the boys Cheerios and puffs. The boys all got toys that they loved. Eli's top gift we think was Gravedigger. This was definitely the first year that Eli really loved Christmas. He was so excited to leave cookies and carrots out, grandpa did not mind this. When we were going to bed Grandpa went outside the window with bells and Eli eyes were open with great joy at this sound. He kept on calling us back to say he was hearing bells or Santa on the roof. It made Christmas so much fun this year. The twins of course were more excited with boxes and wrapping paper and Eli seem to enjoy their presents more then they did. When we got home today the biggest challenge was figuring out how to fit everything in the house. We had to box up some old toys and then began to bring everything in. When we got it all in it looked like Christmas morning all over again. Needless to say it was a great holiday. We hope that everyone else was just as enjoyable. Below are some pictures from our time with the families.

Children update:


Caleb is now wanting to walk everywhere. He is slow moving but can go long distances, pretty exciting!! His teeth continue to bother him but he still hanging in there.

Sorry about the coaster. Caleb always has something in his mouth. This is just a little clip of the walking.



Andrew is our climber. He does not show much interest in walking but wants to climb everything. At grandmas and grandpas he continued to climb up their stairs non stop. He was so proud of himself. He also enjoyed climbing on top of big boxes and sitting there during present time.



Eli is getting ready for school. He got a backpack for Christmas and he can not stop talking about school, only a few more years. Too bad mom has to go back in one week. He is starting to recognize a lot more letters now as well. He loves his flashcards.



We hope everyone is doing well and had a great holiday!!
