Happy Holidays

It sure has been a busy week. On Sunday (12/23) we had GranMarie's Christmas party that was held in Higley Arizona, about two hours north of Tucson. A great deal of the Peterson side of the family showed up, and it was wonderful to see everyone. On Monday, Christmas Eve, we spent the evening my in-laws house. We had dinner, desert, and presents which lasted well past everyone's bed time, but all in all it was a fun time. On Christmas morning, we opened presents around 8:00 am. I actually had to wake Aidan up, because he was so tired from being at Grannyann and Grandpa's so late. I opened his door and said "Aidan, Santa came, do you want to open presents?" He half opened his eyes, and said "no mommy, but want more juice" it was hilarious. I got him more juice and let him wake up a little and a few minutes later he stumbled out into the living room and joined the festivities. Matthew and I chose to open our Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, so we could actually enjoy the gift giving process without screaming kids. It worked out really well. Christmas Eve was special for us, and then Christmas morning we could just focus on Emma and Aidan. I think until they get a little bigger and more patient we will make it a habit. Santa was very good to us, as was our family, and we have no complaints. We are very lucky, and we thank God for our blessings every day!
