Christmas at our house

We did not get snow the day of Christmas, but we did a few days before. It actually started to warm up here in Kansas City after the extreme cold weather we have had for the past week or so. I had a wonderful Christmas and hope the rest of you did too. All three of our kids were here for Christmas breakfast with Dad making his famous pancakes. We then did our gifts, which has changed alot from when they were little. It is much more relaxed and goes at a nice easy pace with each of us opening one gift at a time now that everyone is a adult (most of the time) around here. Although I do miss when they were little and all the excitement of Christmas Eve, of them going to bed at their regular time and hubby and I playing you know who, then being woke up before the crack of dawn to see what Santa brought for everyone. I do not miss being woke up that early anymore.

We then had our dinner and got to play the new Wii that I was very happy to get this year from hubby (thank you sweetie!). I am not a video game person, but got to play the bowling game one time a few months back and was amazed by it. This game system kept eveyone playing on Christmas day at my house, then again at my sil house the next day. Both nights we did not stop until 10PM when it was time to go home. Hubby and I got to have it to ourselves last night and did several games of bowling which is not much different then going to a actual bowling alley. We are totally addicted now.

I am going to leave you with a family picture of our family. This is the goofy one.

And me with our new Wii!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I predict that 2009 will a much better year than 2008 at least hopefully on the economy part.
