Christmas Part.... (I lost track..)

The day after Christmas we celebrated with 31 of us from my mom's side of the family! All the little cousins had a blast playing with each other - I didn't see Ethan all day! The rest of us enjoyed catching up and just spending time together. My dad decorated his sleigh (John Deere) and took the kids on a ride around the yard.
It was really fun - loved seeing everyone! After that we were all exhausted, but spent as much quality time with the Boston contingent as we could since they were leaving in the morning. Lucas and Maddie loved playing together and Maddie even showed off by rolling across the floor several times to get to toys. She is so stinkin' cute!! It was so hard to say good-bye to my two favorite redheads (and their parents), but what a great week!

The next day we went shopping and had a yummy birthday dinner in honor of Brian. You'll notice Ethan picked out the decor. We sang and ate cookie ice cream sandwiches. Delicious!
Our final day was spent getting ready to go home and for Brian to move into the basement. The boys were fine on the plane, though Lucas was somewhat of an acrobat. We were exhausted and went right to sleep.
Yesterday was Brian's birthday and we spent it changing our bank account, organizing the house, taking down Christmas, etc. Not the most exciting birthday, but we did have dinner at Red Robin.
Happy 29th Brian! We love you and are so proud of you! Knock 'em dead in Seattle!
