We have had a very relaxing and chill holiday season. Well, that isn't totally true. We have had a very relaxing and chill Christmas Day to New Year's Day! Ha!
This is the 2nd year that we haven't traveled for Christmas. I think there are pros and cons to both. Traveling is exciting and a lot of work (especially packing/traveling with 4 kids). Staying home is peaceful, but not quite as exciting and fun. Anyway, it has been good and my boys play, play, play all day long. Our neighborhood is full of kids and they would much rather be home and play with them than anything else. They ride bikes, jump on the trampoline, play all kinds of games, ball, and listen to ipod's (This one is funny to see almost all of them with their ipod's. They played the "sing off" today.) On a side note it is 67 degrees today. Crazy.
One last thing, my boys favorite gifts:
Tyler 8yo: ipod nano (half the songs are sung by the Chipmunks)
Blake 6yo: 4 wheeler (enough said)
Sam 4yo: Batman Bat Cave and all the characters (I have been asked 142 times to play the role of Robin)
Gray 2yo: All of the above and anything else the older boys received, but he didn't.
