We have had such a great holiday break. It is so fun to celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas, it seems like everyday has been a party. We have decorated cookies, played games, opened presents, played with our favorite friends.
Santa visited and left his had prints in our chimney again. He really loved the carrots and apple juice Alexander left out for him. Alex thought that Santa would be full of cookies and would need some "healthy" food for his muscles. Mema had a sleep over on Christmas eve and the boys woke her up by imitating her loud whistle. (They use a high pitch squeal that is more cute and funny than anything.) We are so lucky to have her close to us.
We missed our Nana and Poppie, but we thought of them all the time. They sent the best presents. Jaxon kept asking if Poppie was going to come down the chimney with Santa. Maybe next year, right Poppie?
Tio brought the boys an awesome race track that they loved. They really enjoyed playing with him too.
Lala came over to bring the boys Star Wars costumes but the boys were most excited just to play with her. We love her so much. She even made me cry with excitement over the gift she gave to Jason and me. Thanks a bunch Lala.
We love our family and friends and hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful and healthy family. We look forward to the New Year!
