Merry Christmas!

Well, it was quite a holiday folks! Since I totally slacked on writing anything about Thanksgiving, I'm here to redeem myself for this holiday. We started out the holidays with having Tyler's brother and sister come over for dinner and games (Tues night). Tyler's mom lives in Japan so we used the webcam to see her. She had sent London on Origami frog that the child literally laughed herself to hysteria. Tyler caught the end of the laughter on video. video It was fun to see his family and play games! For Christmas Eve we traveled up to my grandparents for the festivities. Of course there was way to much delicious food and my six extra pounds for the month of December is sticking, unfortunately. The nativity scene included London as a distracted Mary and my nephew Sam as the best baby Jesus ever! Well, London has been asking about Santa for weeks now and I seriously worried about how she'd handle the "real" Santa at my grandma's. He knocked loudly on the door and said his "Ho, ho, ho," and London wrapped her arms around my neck scared to death. However, when he walked in the door she surprised us all by screaming "Sanna! Sanna!" It was precious! She went right to him and sat on his lap. She loved the presents! We did discover that London is quite jealous of mommy holding other babies. She feels that if I'm holding a baby than I should be holding her too. video We had a talent show as well and I was so proud of my family! WOW! She was so tired that she sat on Poppa's lap and wanted to cuddle. That night was a mess. London would not go to sleep and ended up staying awake until after midnight and waking up at four a.m. We were all so tired! I finally let her open up some presents at midnight because I really didn't think she'd be awake in the morning. Wrong. So all of us climbed on the stairs for our glamorous morning pic. I have to say that Maddie looks like a devil. She'll love that. London loved playing with her cousins and all of her gifts. But, by the end of the day we were exhausted! Everyone was trying to stay awake. It's too bad that Christmas is over already. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
