Early Christmas

Since we're heading to Utah tomorrow, we wanted to do our own little family Christmas this morning.  Sadly, we'll have to spend tonight taking down our Christmas tree so it doesn't dry up and catch on fire while we're gone!

Bennett was thrilled when we told him we'd get to open presents this morning.  He surprised me by making sure that Justin opened his present first (Bennett helped me wrap it and I'm really surprised he didn't tell Justin what it was before he opened it!), even though he was so excited that there were presents for him.  I took a few videos, but figured I'd just post this one for my family mostly.  My mom made Bennett this darling quilt & matching pillowcase and he was so happy to have it!



We probably won't be mailing Christmas cards this year, so do be offended if you don't get one.  I meant to get on it a lot sooner, and even got some cards printed, but then got too busy with the rest of life that I didn't get addresses and didn't have time to write our little newsletter thing til yesterday.  Alas.  There's always next year!  So if you read this blog, know I probably wanted to send you a card, and here's one for your viewing pleasure!

Thanks for posting the video. It was awesome to see him open the quilt. I hope he likes it. Love you all!

Congratulations on the new baby! That's so exciting . . . but I'm trying to avoid letting Jeff find out, because he's got a serious, chronic case of baby fever and you being pregnant might send him over the edge. That video is adorable--I love that Bennett said thank you AND you're welcome for the blanket . . . such manners!

Watching Bennett open that quilt was so much fun! We Skyped with Jenn and watched Joe open his gifts - two fun little guys in our family! Can't wait to meet the new one in June!
