Our Christmas eve and Christmas
We had such a great Christmas. The kids loved every second of it. I think Jake started the count down right after Halloween. So Christmas eve we have a big night at grandma Strong's. We open gifts from them and the cousins, have a great dinner, and play a mean game of bingo...its pretty serious!! (with great, and i mean great bingo gifts!) So we got home from grandmas around 8:30 or so that night and the kids wanted to sleep in Ky's room for Christmas eve. We made them and bed on the floor and got a movie for them to watch. Ky was SO excited Jake was sleeping in her room, so excited that she lost her balance and feel down and cut her eye open on her little table and chairs in her room. that's right, primary children's here we come!!! Jason and Jake stayed home and did the rest of Christmas eve things, writing Santa his letter and getting milk and cookies ready. My sweet dad came with me and Kylie so i wasn't by myself. long story short Ky qualified for clue instead of stitches, which she would have had around 5-6 stitches. We finally got home around 12:30am just in time for bed!! I of course had a billion things to still do so didn't get much sleep. We kept this Dora banded on her eye so she wouldn't pick at the clue, and thank goodness she behaved and left it alone. Her eye looks really good and i just cant believe that's were we spent our night....

So here is the little stinker showing her eye and banded
this was Christmas eve...


And now Christmas morning. We had to wake our kids up!!


After Christmas eve, Christmas morning and the day with grandparents here is Jacobs Christmas...we are so blessed to have such great families who hooked the kids up!!!

A few days after Christmas we headed to Midway and spent new years there...it was great. I forgot my camera but Jason took the kids sledding, we went swimming, played alot of wii and just relaxed.
Hope you all had a great holiday!!

The comment on the dog.... They are work. It's a funny story how we ended up with the dog. Anyway what I'm trying to tell you is hold off as long as you can. I feel like I have another child. Glad you are doing well.
