Christmas and Alec's Birthday

We had a wonderful Christmas. All the family together in matching pajamas eating chocolate at 8:00 in the morning (or maybe that was just me!) It was fun to watch so many little kids get so happy opening and playing with their (and others') presents. People were very thoughtful and generous with their gift-giving to us. We're were unexpectedly blessed with nice sweaters, games, a food mill, pride & prejudice, stuffed animals, toys and trains. Pictures from other parts of the break will come soon. The last picture is of all the paper soldiers we did of all the grandkids as a surprise for Grandma and Grandpa.

For Alec's Birthday we went to Round Table Pizza's lunch buffet....WITH DESSERT PIZZA. This is the best stuff ever, and no other Round Table that I know of has it except the one in U.P. WA. After dinner and a fun game of "Pin the Tail on the Donkey" with cousins, we ate the Train-under-the-Tunnel cake I made for him. He loved us singing Happy Birthday to Alec so much that he kept singing it to himself while he ate his cake, "happy day ayec." It was indeed a happy day to think that 2 years ago we were welcoming our sweet Alec into our family. We have been crazy happy ever since.

Brittney: don't know if you remember me from High School (BriAnne Parisio?), but I just wanted to say that you look amazing and you have a beautiful family! How in the heck are you?
