Merry Christmas 2009
(Maeta 2 months, Soren 2 years)
We began our Christmas celebration at my parent's house. We had a wonderful time celebrating our Savior's birth through fellowship together. We woke up to a beautiful snowfall. I tried hard to get Soren to go sledding but all he would do is sit on Nana's lap and watch everyone else. We played, we sledded, we made pizza (which I didn't end up helping with at all) we took Christmas pictures, we ate, we read and reenacted Christ's birth, we opened presents, we tried to get kids to bed, and we laughed!! It was a great time.
In the morning Santa came and brought more presents!!!
I love Christmas at home!
The next evening we went to Dustin's parents house. We had great food, played with more toys, and opened more presents!! Soren got a tractor from his aunt Nikki and uncle Drew which although he thinks it is pretty cool he is still a little hesitant towards it.
The next morning we woke up in our own bed (yes all of us in 1 bed, Maeta didn't come in till morning!) and had our Christmas. We ate cinnamon roles, lit the last advent candle, opened more presents, and played some more!!
After our Christmas we went to Dustin's aunt and uncle's house for the Olmschenk celebration. Soren wanted to play the whole time in the basement on the pool table so Dustin and I traded off playing down there with him and socializing with everyone else.
Christmas # 5
On Saturday we packed up the car and headed out on the icey roads to Duluth. It took us double the time to get up there. We enjoyed seeing the Opsahl side of the family. And the kids loved all the toys at the Carlson house (they have 3 boys!!!).
Sunday was our last Christmas celebration of 2009. We ventured over to Stillwater to the Borg side. It was so much fun seeing Linzy and catching up with her and the rest of the family. Soren had so much fun playing with "Tade" (Cade). Dustin and I didn't see him for about 2 hours because he had so much fun. That night laying in bed all he could talk about and pray for was Cade!!!
