    The Christmas spoils

    I hope everyone out there in blogosphere had a good Christmas. I know we did. Here are the pictures and blurbs of what the Holiday season brought. The girls with their huge Disney Princess dolls. Of course Maggie got Belle. Emma got Cinderella.

    Emma with her Pixel Chix, and Maggie with her MagnaDoodle book.

    Of course HSM 2 found it's way to our house. The girls think it's pretty cool that I went to college where they filmed the movie. What can I say? I'm just cool like that.

    And somehow Santa found a WII on eBay, and sent it our way. We played it all night Christmas night, and I have the sore shoulder to show for it.

    Maggie's little piano. Gretta got one just like it. Maybe now they'll leave mine alone.

    Now for the run down.

    Christmas eve:
    Dinner at Sizzler. My parents go there so often, their server invited them to her wedding, and also gave them a $25 Gift Certificate. Should I brag about that?
    Huge snowstorm. The drive home from Sizzler was fun. The vangina rocks in the snow.
    Played play dough pictionary at Grandma's house. Green dough makes for interesting sculptures.

    Christmas Morning:
    Woke up at 5 AM.
    Gretta starts puking.
    Open presents til 7.
    Gretta continues puking.
    Breakfast at Nunn and Poppa's at 9.
    Open more presents.
    Gretta pukes.
    Play a wicked game of Cranium. It was Sylvester, Kelli. ;)
    Went to Grandma's for lunch.
    Opened more presents.
    Played another game of Cranium, Clayton style.
    Leave in a hurry due to mystery smell.
    Play WII all night.

    Day after Christmas:
    Kids woke up early to play WII
    Gretta still puking.
    Mom takes shower, finally!
    Gretta has a seizure.
    Head to Primary's for 2 days.

    Home. Finally.
    Gretta back to normal.
    Kids playing with WII all day.
    Mom not feeling too hot.
    Sean's last day of work in Utah.
    Looking forward to having him home for 2 weeks.

    I think that's all. Sorry about the absence of blogging. I promise I'll be better.

    Keli said...

    It's from getting dehydrated. Her electrolytes were all messed up. She's fine now. It was pretty scary, though.

    I am glad that Gretta is doing better. What would it be like to have your husband home for 2 weeks? Fun. Enjoy it. Trust me. Merry Christmas to you guys. Tell the girls hi for us. See you in a couple of weeks.

    I'm glad to hear it's nothing serious with Gretta. I looks like you had a fun Christmas. Four years ago we went to Sizzler for Christmas Eve dinner and headed home in a snow storm......

    ahhh the memories.

    Have a Happy New Year!
