This year we traveled to Oregon for Christmas. The roads cleared up just in time for us to leave so we got to make the trip down to spend Christmas with my family in Oregon. It was the first time in a loooong time that we have all celebrated Christmas together. The cousins are all at an age where they play nicely together and can also occupy themselves (mostly) independently. The last time we spent Christmas together we all had babies and toddlers so the parents were kept busy, busy, busy trying to keep the little kids out of trouble. Not so this year!
We were able to stay for a few days after Christmas, and then went back home to celebrate Christmas with John's family. We got to meet our niece for the first time (and the boys got to meet their cousin), so that was pretty exciting! The boys loved having a "baby" around. The boys kept commenting how lucky they were that they got to have 3 Christmases! Seriously hope they don't start to expect that though...I was exhausted by the end of it all!
