Christmas 2008

Our Christmas started out great. We started by going out to lunch and then off for our annual bowling. Carter and the boys were so excited as you can tell in the pictures to go and be with their cousins. After bowling we ran a few errands and made a quick stop to see my Great Grandma Carter at Fairwinds who will be 97 this year and wished her a Merry Christmas. We then hurried home to begin preparing our Christmas Eve dinner it was great we had all of my family over Mike and I bought a prime rib and my brother-in-law cooked it for us and did a wonderful job. We ate lots and lots and enjoyed each other but the night could not be over without a surprise visit from Santa. The kids were able to open their Christmas Eve present which is always pajamas.
It was such a great night and what made it the best is my Grandpa and Grandma Fillmore were able to be with us and even visit with Santa.
After everyone left our house, the stockings were hung by the chimney with care... and the tree was lit...
and the cookies and milk and our note to Santa was out, we all hurried to bed to wait for Santa. The boys were so very excited for Christmas morning and came to wake us at 2:30 asking if it was time yes you guessed it right we shooed them quickly back to bed and nobody moved until 7:30. Finally the boys were up and all the excitement began it was so fun to be able to watch them tear into it all.

It was a very busy but exciting day after opening presents at our house we quickly made the very snowy trip to Mikes parents house for breakfast an to open presents with them. Because of the snow it was quite an adventure to get us all to their house but we did it and had a very yummy, yummy breakfast. I just want both Mikes family and my family to know how much we love them and it will be a Christmas that will never be forgotten. Thanks everyone it was wonderful. Have a Happy New Year we love you.
