Well, it's over! Christmas is almost like your wedding. You work, work, work and have all this anticipation and in the blink of an eye it's over! I guess the only difference is that you get to do Christmas all over again the next year:-) We've been celebrating since the 19th! We went to see Matt's family in Oklahoma first and had a great time. The boys got lots of fun presents and Hayden's favorite was definitely his cowboy boots! We came home the Monday before Christmas and did our "thing," just the four of us. It was so much fun this year b/c Hayden "got it." After a few days to relax and do laundry, we headed to my parents. My brother Kurt is kind of a quiet guy, if you don't really know him. If you do know him, he's hilarious. My mom was cooking one afternoon and the doorbell rang. When she answered it, it was the UPS guy who sounded very "slow," if you know what I mean! After having her sign for her package, he came in to the house and grabbed her and told her she was "lookin' good." Well, she freaked out!! Come to find out, Kurt had made a UPS shirt and hat, got a wig and glasses and was tricking her. It was soooo funny! We also had an Ugly Christmas Sweater competition. That was a blast. The votes came down to my dad and Kurt and Kurt won. He borrowed some white band pants from the school he coaches at and wore his wig. It was awesome! We are home now and I'm uploading pictures, updating my blog, checking email etc. So here are the pictures. Hope you all had a Holly Jolly Christmas too!
