Merry Late Christmas and Happy late New Year!

Christmas was great this year! I got off work at 1:00 on Christmas Eve and we went to my parents house to see my sister Jenny and her family! Craig went and played basketball with some buddies that came in to town. Jenny had a baby in June that I had never seen. He is the cutest thing you ever seen. He is a chunk! With a head full of hair. Her older kids are going fast! I can't believe how big they are. Dessa is in Kindergarten. Christmas Eve night we went to Grandma Rita's house for dinner. It was a small quite gathering. Craig has a great time with his Cousins. Christmas day.... we woke up to Dessa and Krehl. I was planning to sleep in but it didn't quite happen with the little ones. Craig and I had already opened presents and we had to wait for the others to open more. We drove into Craig's parents house to eat breakfast. Craig pretended to hunt, then we drove back to Craig's parents house to open presents. Erin had to work so we waited for her. They bought us shelves that haven't come in yet. Ryan (Craig's brother) and Jamie, his girlfriend were here. She is very talented at knitting. She knitted us a bear for our baby. It is so cute. Then... we went back to my parents house for dinner and presents with my family. There is nothing quite any more about that. Kids running everywhere. They play so well together. It was fun to see them. Tonia and I got cribs and pad sets for them. The boys got tools! and Craig and I got a shelfrelience. It is a really neat shelf thing. I am very excited. Jeri has one and posted it on her blog awhile ago. It will help conserve space and make room for more food storage. Terry called at about 10:00. We talked to him. He sounds like he is doing great. We spent the rest of the weekend at my parents. Saturday night we went to the Stampede game. Craig works at them and he got season tickets. My Parents and Anna came over too. It was fun. Monday I had to work then it was off to McCall for the rest of the week. We played a lot of games, wally ball and swam. Craig went snowboarding with his cousins. He had a good time. I think that he is going to go a couple more times with them this winter. Ten years ago my family made some predictions and wrote some other things. My dad brought it up there and we opened it on New Years Eve. That was fun. I wrote some silly things. It was a nice vacation. Monday morning came fast and I am very tired. To many nights of staying up late and sleeping in. We appreciate all the Christmas cards that we got. It sounds like everyone is doing wonderful. We wish you the best in 2009!
