Christmas Part II

For the actual Christmas holiday, we hopped on a plane and headed to Boise to stay with Grandma Genie. There we visited, laughed, ate and ate some more. Poor Lucy was sick with a head cold and cough so there were some moments where she wasn't too happy. Lucky for her, Grandma is a superstar and went out and found some baby tylenol at 10pm on Christmas night. The girls got homemade dolls from Grandma as well as some cds of records that I used to listen to. Super fun! It was a delightful, happy and relaxing holiday and we got to see so many of our favorite people! Some funny & sweet stories of the weekend:
  • Jack talking about Mary and Jesus going to "Buffalo Ham." We think that might be near Pennsylvania?
  • Ruby and Jack playing with the nativity and the Rapunzel Barbie. Rapunzel let down her long hair for the Three Wise Men to climb up into the lamp.
  • Lucy burying her face into Lis, Amy's golden retriever
  • Lucy toddling over to everyone with her hands held out, begging to be snuggled.
  • Hearing the kids sing Jingle Bells & Frosty in the car
  • Ruby telling me, "Today is a day of good," on Christmas day.
  • Ruby telling me this morning, "I'm a lucky girl. So's Lucy. So are you!" She's right on all counts.
Here are some shots of the weekend:
