|Thanksgiving Weekend 2011|
|Aaron's 3rd Birthday at The Old Spaghetti Factory|
|Nordstrom's Breakfast with Santa 2011|
We spent Christmas morning at our house opening all of Aaron's gifts from us, The Herring Family and Santa, including of course, Flo! He was so happy to get that car! Then we all got dressed and headed over to my parents with the whole family again (yes, even the cats). This year the "adult children" decided to do Secret Santa (best idea ever!) and stocking stuffers for everyone else. Except for Aaron, of course. Christmas gifts are really all about the kids anyway! I think this is one of the better Christmases we've had in awhile! We were all relaxed, all enjoyed the gifts we got and had fun watching Aaron tear into all the packages! He was definitely Santa's Little Helper this year! Eva got a Wii for her Secret Santa gift so we all had fun dancing to Just Dance (all except my grumpy grumperton husband Josh, who won't do anything he considers embarrassing, even if it is just family!). Even mom and dad got in on it! It was a good time with great family and good food.
Then, on December 29th my sister-in-law had a baby!! So now I'm an auntie! I was SO excited!!! I only wish I could see him in person!
And now the New Year is upon us.......
I think things are starting to look up for us and most people I know. I can only hope that this trend continues and grows in the new year.
I wish all of you a wonderful, happy and prosperous 2012!
