We had my parents, brother, grandmother and uncle over Christmas Eve. The kids got a Wii from my grandmother, and are having so much fun with it. Jessie got the High School Musical III game, and it does lots of dancing - she works up a sweat doing it! I'm thinking of getting the Wii Fit set sometime here before too long.
We were home Christmas morning which was nice. We typically get the kids 1 big present (in the $50 range) and then get them 4 or 5 littler presents, plus their stockings. Due to some great deals, Tyler got an MP3 player for $14, Jessie got a cordless mouse for $12.....The kids LOVED their sheet blankets, although I was up until 12:30 finishing Tyler's, and there is about 5" around the very outside that I still need to quilt.
Then in the late afternoon, it was off to Todd's parents for more food, more family and more presents.
It was a fun filled two days, but I am so glad it is over until next year. Now we'll see if I can leave the tree up until New Years, or if it will come down this weekend. I love Christmas, but I want my house back.....

She has been coughing and hacking over the last few weeks, and then Christmas Eve she just coughed and passed out a couple times. So off to the vet we went, where we found out she has extreme Congestive Heart Failure. She is old (11 1/2) so it's really no shock to us but today I will be going to Wal-mart to get her some medicine (they actually give dogs human meds for this condition) and we'll see what happens. She still gets outside and chases the guineas and rabbits so....
I'll be back later with my homemade Christmas presents and a new quilt that I started last night!
