Christmas!

I would love to post some pictures with this post, but alas, our transfer cable has been packed away. And Cody and I would love to be playing games right now, but those too are packed away. We had a fun little Christmas with our family. A first for us to not be with extended family. I'm sure it wasn't the norm that other people do when by themselves. We spent the afternoon packing more boxes and trying not to lose pieces of the kids new toys.

Tucker and Aubrey actually let us sleep in until 8:15 this morning. That was a great present! We grabbed our camera when they woke up (we also would have loved to have video, but the video camera broke 2 days ago), and headed downstairs to see what Santa brought. Well, I guess you could say Santa came this year, but not officially. We have no stockings and we didn't pick one specific present to be from Santa for the kids. They were all wrapped and said from Mom and Dad. If you ask Tucker though, he received a Hippo. He loves those things. We bought him Hungry Hungry Hippo (hippos are hard to come by at the store) and Aubrey's favorite present was probably her new pink backpack and My Little Pony (although she refers to it as a "horsie"). Next year Santa will visit for real since we "hopefully" won't be moving 2 days later!

We had a nice dinner and now Cody and I are enjoying our last free moments on the computer before tomorrow's craziness comes. My sister, Heather and her husband, Dan, are driving through here on their way home from Texas tomorrow to help us load up the moving truck on Saturday and then haul me and the kids to Utah on Sunday. Unfortunately for Cody, he'll be stuck in an empty house for 2/1/2 days because he has to work Monday and Tuesday. Then he'll start his drive out and either get to Utah Tuesday night or Wednesday morning depending on what time he gets on the road.

If any of you need to get a hold of us, you'll have to try Cody's cell. Our phone and internet will be disconnected tomorrow and we won't get our new info until next Friday or so. We hope you all had a Merry Christmas and enjoy the New Year!
