We had a wonderful Christmas, filled with lots and lots of family time. Christmas Eve we spent with all the Folkmans. Grandpa got Beatles rock band for Christmas from the kids, so we spent the evening jamming out in front of the tv with everyone. Emma was quite good on the drums.

Christmas day, we spend with the Recklings, eating yummy food, and playing hand and foot. It was a fun couple of days. We are grateful for so much family and love in our life.

On Christmas eve, we read Luke II by the firelight with Emma before bed. I'm really hoping that we were successful in teaching her what Christmas is all about this month. Not just Santa, fun and presents, but most importantly Christ and His birth. Ask her, and she'll tell you what's most important (i hope). She might get a little confused and tell you its all about her pink kid umbrella from Santa, since her world has been revolving around it for the past 24 hours.

Now, we are baby-izing the house for the next week. Setting up crib, fixing some things, getting a new dresser, etc. This is our last big break before baby, so I'm hoping to get all ready now. We really can't wait for our new arrival. We just can't seem to pick a name...Ugghh.

How fun! Sad we missed it but happy everyone got to enjoy time together.
Good luck on the name!

I can so sympathize with you on the picking the name part! Agreeing on a name is such a challenge . . . :)
