A Very Merry Christmas


No, really...it was. Even though Zachary was sick, sick poor thing and still is, it was such a great day. We couldn't go to my family's house and Zachary couldn't go to his dad's, but we made the most of it with our new toys. He is so pale and feeling just crappy. I am wondering if he doesn't have the flu again. Here are some pictures from our day.

Look what Santa left!
(Ummm...minus the beanbag chair we forgot until the last possible moment, Whoops!!)


Check out all of our mugs that Gary got us!
Love them!


First look at the haul.


And yes, he had Christmas PJ's too, but a middle of the night accident had them in the wash at this time. I told you he was the really yucky kind of sick. I thought to change him into a red shirt at least before we started unwrapping.


Olivia was really into unwrapping her presents...kinda


Abby was more interested in eating the paper


Yay! So happy to get in shape!


Just what he wanted!


Love this picture of us all


Playing the Wii


The yummy Monkey Bread I made (Christmas tradition)
Probably not the best thing to eat to get fit, right?


All in all a great and wonderful holiday. I am taking a small break for the next week or so. I am working on a 6 month post on their stats and such. That will be my post on Friday. I may do a menu, I may not.

I also got tagged for a couple of things plus an award! I am so excited to pass these on and I will when I get back into it next week.

I put a poll at the top because it never occurred to me that my signature was not coming up all cute to everyone. Gary's Mac shows it as a basic font as does my laptop so it got me wondering how many of you see a big plain Sara at the end of all my posts. So please vote so I can change it if I need to.

I will leave you with something fun, fun. Below you will find highchairs. We tried peas for the first time and Gary put a bit of baby food on each of the girl's trays. They both LOVED the peas but only one of them was into exploring it with her hands. Which one is which?? Did Olivia love to paint with peas, or Abigail? I will reveal it next week.


Have a great week everyone and I will see in 2009!

I'm so sorry Zachary was sick for Christmas! It looks like you had a wonderful day though. I make monkey bread Christmas morning too. So yummy! There are some great photos there...love the family shot. Merry Christmas!

Cute, cute, cute! I loved the PJ photos! We got a Wii, too, but I couldn't find a Wii board anywhere to get the Wii Fit....I'll just keep looking!

I totally understand about the night accidents, that happened to one of my twins several years ago, but luckily since mine are BG I had PJs from previous year that blended in for the photos.

Thanks for sharing!!

Your Christmas seemed like a good one. Sorry that Zachary was sick...and hope he feels better! Your bread looks very good!! Maybe you should post your receipe for that!! The family picture is very cute!

The only reason I was able to put together a menu this week is becuase I had to plan food for the desert to have it in the motorhome!!
