okay, these things are super cool until you use them for a bit - we got a small hole under the seat in one so we returned it for another and Santa got them a second one and BOTH of the new ones have holes in the same spot - bad reviews from me on their wear and tear factor! Here they are before they bit the dust!

We host Christmas Eve for my mom's side of the family each year. So nice to get everyone together. We had a fun time as always! The kids get pajamas each year on Christmas Eve to wear to bed too.

We went out to dinner and planned to see Santa afterward and I was certain he was there from 6-9. Our friends and step-sister and her family were all ready for him and I was wrong with the time! Big oops!! He was there from 5-8. We got there about 8:03 and no sign of Santa - he bee-lined for the North Pole - his helper said we just missed him. They did have their Christmas scenes set up so you could go in and get pictures so we worked with what we had.

We went to celebrate Christmas with Kirk's family - we always have a great time - his step-brother, J.D and his wife, Jerra hosted it. So much food, so many presents, and soooooo many kids! I was so bad at getting pictures during it but you can see with all of the kids, we were in the midst of chaos most of the time. After we had Ryan, all the other small children have come along - holy cow! They will have lots of memories to make together!

Bradley's school is divided into neighborhoods so his neighborhood did a musical at the Centerville High School. It was so great! The music teacher came to our house and took a video of him talking in front of our tree so he got to be in the main video they played before they sang their Christmas songs. I didn't get pictures of him at the musical b/c I was using my camcorder but here are a few of him with my mom before we left (and Ryan had to jump in too!) I need to be better at using both forms of media! He even sang this year - he wouldn't even try at his preschoool graduation last year - big step!

We went out with some great friends for great food! We ended up going to Savona in Centerville and came back to our house for a gift exchange and game-playing - lots of fun! Had to get a few pictures of the event, however, didn't have the camera at dinner - bummer! It was a great time! All the kids were out of the house - so nice to get a night like that once-in-awhile!
