Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

We had a very good Christmas this year. Peter was soooo excited this year. He was wanting to leave the family Christmas eve party at six so he could go home and go to bed. Henk was way excited also and Gracey was excited because the others were excited. When I was little we couldn't get out of bed until six a.m. I remember being awake for hours waiting for six to roll around. Erin and I would also try sneaking out to see our presents, but my parents usually caught us. My kids had a hard time waking up at 8:30.

The boys got new snowboards and they love them. We just need a little more snow here. (Yeah I can't believe I'm saying that either.) They went a couple of times and Henk stayed up for quite some time. Peter is learning to turn. They are both already better than I am at snowboarding.

Gracey got a new baby. She was so cute with that thing. She was looking around all morning for a bed for her baby when she found the new dog bed Santa brought, she stayed there all morning long.

Yep my little Henk is four years old. He had a good birthday with lots of friends and family.

2009 was a pretty good year for us. Besides Pete's broken arm, we all came out in one piece. Justin still has a job and right now I don't think we could ask for much more than that.
