Christmas here and gone

Well it's already 2008 and more than month since we have updated. Like everyone else life gets away from you and you get busy.
Our Christmas was wonderful! We weren't able to do all the fun things the seasons brings, but we were able to enjoy time together, on occassion. The boys let us sleep in!(sort of) Santa came a little early and we got to see what he left for us before Steve and I went to bed. On Christmas Eve we spent time with our families and took time to just relax... not something we get to do very often. That night we decided to give the boys an adventure (sort of) and took a sleigh ride to Grandma and Grandpa Hansen's house. The boys loved riding in the sled, but I think more... they loved being big boys and helping dad shovel the snow before we left.
We had Grandma and Grandpa Hansen and Aunt Mel and her roommate, Mickey, over for breakfast which was hectic as always, but fun! One thing we've learned is that we need to take pictures! All of our Christmas morning with Larry, Susan, Mel and Mickey are on their cameras!!!, so those aren't posted. We all had a good time and then we went to Grandma and Grandpa Woolstenhulme's house. The boys' got to see all their cousins and play with uncle Aaron and Aunt Megan... that doesn't get to happen a lot so it was really neat. We all got a good laugh at Becky for trying on Cordell's moon boots and almost biffing it into Steve!
What a laugh! We had a great Christmas and wish that the day could have been longer! We missed being able to see any of the 7 grandparents that day, but hoped that they knew we were thinking of them and love them very much!
We have had a very blessed year and hope this coming one will be just as good!
