What a treat! We got to have Niko with us for Christmas eve and Christmas morning! Woo hoo!
We are still trying to avoid the crazy over done Christmas present thing. This year we opted for practical gifts for everyone . . . monogrammed towels and sleeping bags. Todd and I also tied new, big fleece blankets for everyone. Aunt Teresa had made all of the kids blankets about 10 years ago. They have been well used but now are a little small and worn with age.
We also got a new 8 person tent, a one minute tent, literally. With a stop watch in my hand, Todd and Thomas put it up for the first time in one minute. In the house.
Merry Christmas everyone!
