First, close-ups of the all-important holiday shirts:
Second, Uncle Sam came a little early to visit us and then left early because he’s got a girlfriend(please say in a sing-song voice):
Third, Grandma and Bekah drove late into the night to get here for Christmas Eve:
Fourth, on Christmas Eve we ate lunch at our local mongolian grill-type restaurant, Seth barfed and had to be eliminated from further festivities, and we went to The Frog Princess
Fifth, we had our traditional Bethlehem dinner at the Daines
Sixth, we went home to open presents (in order to include Sick Seth) and Ryan couldn’t believe I actually woke Faith up so she could be in the cute New Jammies Picture. As you can tell, she was happy to part of it all:
Seventh, Christmas morning. Here’s Jane with her scooter…which she rode to her cousins’ house, in 20 degree weather.
Eighth, Jane lost her second front tooth WHILE ON THE WAY to get her ears “a-pierced”. It was quite an eventful half hour.
Ninth, we wore our Christmas garb a week late, because we wanted Grandma to see it, duh. (what is Seth’s problem with pictures?? Seriously go back and peruse him in all the pictures. He’s got a problem.)
Tenth, Bekah taught Faith how to do kissy lips on the way to see the worst children’s movie ever: “Where the Wild Things Are”. Kiss that one good-bye.
And last, on New Years Eve we went to First Night where we met up with the Albrechts, ran into Andrea and listened to the lamest children’s singer ever. After we went home and put kids to bed, we went and hung out with Brunts, Seligers, Daines and Koppelsons and I don’t know why we don’t have a picture because it was the most fun New Years Ever party I’ve attended in a looong time.
And that’s all. Happy 2010!!
