christmas in january

As you can tell from the last post, I am really backed up on the blog!  And even though it’s not super timely at this point, I will catch up if it kills me.

Like many of you I’m sure, we had about fourteen Christmases.  While it was crazy trying to get around to see everyone everywhere…it was such fun watching the twins experience it over and over.  And I especially loved seeing them encounter traditions from all different parts of our family.

Overall, my favorite moment was when we spent time, just the four of us, in our home with the tree shining and the fire on.  We let Linc and Viv open their gift from us – a piggy bank that we will save coins in throughout the year.  And every year at Christmas we’ll pick someone who could use a little help.  It won’t be much, but my hope is that it will be one way we can show the twins what it is to give.

 Around the second week of December, along with Jon’s brother, sister-in-law and nephew, we visited Jon’s parents.  Usually we make food and go caroling as we deliver it to friends around town.  But times are changing as the family is getting filled with babies, so we laid low this year, just relaxing around the house, eating lots of good food, playing games and opening gifts.

It wasn’t until the weekend after Christmas that we got to have one last celebration with my mom, step-dad and sister.  We even got to see my grandparents as they stopped by for a few hours.  It makes me so happy to see the twins with all their grandparents….they are lucky little babies.  We had such a great time just relaxing around the house and trying to figure out what in the world we did before the babies.

And that’s a wrap on the holiday season.  Super busy…but we wouldn’t have it any other way.  Obviously it’s sort of ridiculous that I’m posting this in the middle of January…such is life!
