christmas this year was different for us. this is the first time in all of caroline's 8 and hadley's 2 christmases that we weren't home on christmas morning. we were up at grandma and grandpa's house. we decided to give it a try since so much of my family was going to be there. it was a lot of extra work for santa, i think, to deliver so many presents to one place, but it was worth it. the girls had such a fun time opening all of their gifts with everyone. and thankfully we didn't wake the entire house before 5am like i had feared!
the girls both got their big christmas wishes. for caroline that was an ipod touch and for hadley that was a slide (remember it was on the list caroline wrote for hadley!). i can assure you that santa would be proud at how much use both are getting. the girls use them daily!
hadley's favorite part of this trip could of very well been her cousin, conley, and not all of the presents!
unfortunately, it wouldn't be a holiday for us without a sick kid and this year that was hadley. we ended up leaving my parents early to take her home to the doctor due to a virus she had, which of course inflamed her asthma.
christmas with everybody was a lot of fun indeed. i just wish i had taken the opportunity to get a lot more family pictures in when we were all together.
