Another Christmas gone by...

We survived Christmas and it was wonderful as always, my kids are so spoiled between us and our families they made out like bandits. Christmas Eve we went to my Grandma's house our usual tradition that I have been doing since I was 3. My kids look so forward to it which makes me feel so good having traditions for them. Another tradition that my Mom started years ago was me and my sisters and herself must all wear matching Christmas socks. Yes she is a dork but I still love her. This year she waited until the last minute to find socks and all she found were these light up knee high socks. Very uncomfortable but we still enjoyed them.. Christmas Eve is also my Moms birthday and I often feel like she gets ripped off because it is never a day all about her, but Steph made her an awesome birthday cake with her favorite thing (popcorn). All in all it was a wonderful Christmas. Now we have a new year to look forward too. We are having our usual get together for New Years. My kids look so forward to this night. It will be transformed to a game house, the guys are planning on hooking two Xbox's up so they can play on seperste TV's against each other, and we have the Wii so hopefully us ladies will get a chance to play that. Plenty of food and kids running around the house, catching up with all the ladies that I see but never get a chance to really talk too. Can't wait and I am praying that 2009 is a good year for everyone.
