Let's see. What else has happened since the last post. Oh yeah. The Simms girls took their annual shopping trip to the beach. What a lifesaver that was for me. I got all my shopping done in 2 days and Santa's helpers wrapped all the presents, too. It was a fun getaway.
Sydney had her preschool Christmas program in December. She did a great job and it was a beautiful program. Here is one of the songs that they sang in the program. She did a special encore presentation for us on Christmas morning.
Christmas Eve was spent at Nanny and Papa's. Santa always leaves lots of goodies at their house.
Christmas morning was spent at home, my favorite place to be. Here is a before shot and then the aftermath. I think Santa was good to them, but you'll have to ask the children to be sure. I must have been very good this year because I got EVERYTHING I wanted. I'm pretty lucky! My Santa Claus is extra special. Notice the lack of ornaments at the bottom of the tree. The girls kept undecorating the tree. Last round of presents was Christmas afternoon. Mom and Rusty and John, Audene and the kids came over for food and fun.
We are so lucky to have such a great family, near and far. They are all so good to us. We hope you all had a happy Christmas!!!
One last event to end the year was a small gathering to celebrate the new year. Thanks to the invention of the DVR we were able to count down and toast the new year several times, just in case anyone missed it the first time. You know all our glasses were filled with non-alcoholic sparkling champagne that had been sitting in our homes for several years. Maybe there was some fermentation.
Well, those are the events of the last month or so. Sorry for the long post. I had to get it all in so when I get my scrapbook/journal/blog printed out it would all be documented. Stay tuned for the next big event...Lauren's 4th birthday.
Oh. I've also been tagged. I haven't forgotten. I will have to do that tomorrow. Oh, it is tomorrow. Maybe I'll get to it later on today, or maybe tomorrow. Watch out you bloggers, you may be getting tagged, too.
