I am so far behind in the blogging world it kinda makes me sad. I really want to be better, and i am going to so for now i am gonna to a quick christmas post...
we celebrate christmas with my parents the weekend before the 25th and it was wonderful, a great time that will forever be remember.
we headed to Minnesota the tuesday before christmas. Eric, me, John Hunter, Lynley and BOTH dogs. What were we thinking. The kids did great and the dogs did wonderful. I could have been because we stuffed benedryl in combos and let them chow away... the dogs not the children.
this was the first time in over 8 years that all over erics siblings have celebrated Christmas together. I was the only in law then, and now there are 3 of us and 3 grandkids. Its a mad house to say the least, but we had a great time. There was no snow which was sad, but a fun time was had by all. I have to say one of our favortie memories would have to be taking the kids to the mall of america. We rode roller coasters with JH and bought Lynley her first American girl doll. Eric and I had a blast. Another speical moment was spending time with Erics grandparents who are still with us, but health is failing. We had a great time! It was a merry christmas and as always we aimed to keep Christ the reason for the season!
