Here I go! Seems like it is time to try this blogging thing. A new year and new thing for me to attempt :)
We spent Christmas at home this year for the first time in 6 years. Ethen and Phoebe woke up at 4:30 in the morning and tried to sneak down to everything without me knowing. I am the lightest sleeper on earth and heard their feet before they made it to the tree. They went back up to bed for a couple more hours luckily. Scott tortured them by making them wait till he turned on the fire and got the lights all on. They lined up with Ethen holding Paisley and marched out with huge grins to finally see what Santa left. It was stockings first and Phoebe was so excited to be opening she pulled something out and yelled "awesome!, what is it?" She didn't care what it was, but was soo excited. That is classic Phoebe for you. Paisley was in total shock at the whole site and just looked around wide eyed for hours before she started boogieing to karaoke. All Luke wanted for Christmas was a horn. So Santa brought him a really annoying, loud one on a tricycle. Ethen kept everyone moving the presents along and we had a really great day.
