Happy New Year!

Well, we are soaking up out last couple of free days before school routines bring us back to reality. We have enjoyed the lack of routine, and have had lots of fun times over the Christmas break.

Here are some pics of our 2nd Christmas...with my mom and sister, several days after spending "real" Christmas with Corey's side of the family this year. It was lots of fun!
Carson was in rare form...very much the entertainer for the night with his new "mikeyphone"!
Christian had asked Mimi for a really soft brown blanket for Christmas this year, and she delivered in a big way...he was a very happy camper! She had his name put on it and everything! I've tried to fight him for it a couple of times...once I begged my way into getting to take a nap with it...heavenly! He better keep his eyes on that!
My wonderful mom and sister...Jeanna was in from the DC area for a Christmas visit! :)
Caylie loved the personalized, satin backed pillow (has to have a "cool" side to sleep on!) that Mimi made for her!
Mimi also made Carson a new blanket...he is one blanket addicted little guy...can't cope with life without one of his 3 or 4 blankets made by Mimi! Hope he outgrows that before kindergarten! For now, it is super cute!

For New Years Eve, we had some of our good friends come over to hang out. We have spent the past few New Years Eves with them, and always have fun!
Our girls are the same age, and their son and Christian are the same age, so it works out well. We had chili, and lots of good snacks! The moms worked on scrapbooks, and the dads watched football. The kids bounced around from watching the big Las Vegas motorcycle jump, to playing Wii, to running around outside, etc., etc.! The dads even took the kids to the front yard for some bottle rocket maybe that part was a little questionable, but they sure had fun, and our nice neighbors didn't even call the cops on us! :)

Carson had been put to bed earlier in the evening, but I think he realized that he was missing out on something, because soon before midnight, he woke up! We let him come downstairs and celebrate the New Year with us. Of course, he had no idea what all of the commotion was about, but he knew that it was fun! He was hamming it up, and loving every minute of it.
Watching the NYC countdown.....
Happy New Year!!!

Hope you had a fun New Year's Eve, and that you will have a GREAT 2009!
