Merry Christmas!

It's a wonderful  life and this was a wonderful Christmas. After enduring two pretty miserable Christmas seasons in a row, this year turned out to be pretty amazing. We have two healthy kids and an absolutely wonderful home that was decorated and cozy and Christmasy and perfect all month long. I had been reading books to Carter for a month on Christmas and Santa to see if he could actually understand the concept this year and we were nervous for how he would react Christmas morning. He is not a fan of opening presents at all but this year proved to be a success as every gift we helped him open was followed by an enthusiastic "Oooohhhh!" Dave and I really felt the spirit of Christmas this year as we hung out all morning in our pajamas as a family and relaxed, opened presents, and ate breakfast (french toast, eggs, and bacon--Carter's favorite!) A special thanks to Grandma and Grandpa Cushman for the "big present" this year--Carter got a Jeep Powerwheels. It is the most awesome thing ever and I totally wish I had a real one! Santa also brought Carter a remote control helicopter that he is fascinated with and although he is much too little to control it on his own, he loves watching his daddy fly it around. My house is FULL of toys and my children are so spoiled by their friends and family members! Merry Christmas and thanks to everyone for making this one so great!

I'm so glad you all had a wonderful Christmas. That Archer is one cool little dude. (:
