Christmas

It's over. Christmas sneaks up quickly and then it's over. To make things easier, I'm going to make a list of the highlights over Christmas....

-My dad was in the hospital....again. He was in over Thanksgiving and decided to make a habit of it, so he went back in for Christmas. But the good news is the doctors finally figured things out and he's looking better everyday.
-Corgan knocked his 2 front teeth REALLY loose and on Friday he had them taken out. So instead of getting his 2 front teeth, he lost 'em. Now he has the cutest, gappy, grin any 4 1/2 year old could have. His "adult teeth" won't grow in for at least 2-3 years; so it's a good thing he looks so darn cute!
-Blake got his first tooth yesterday and his first haircut!
-Following with past traditions, we were all sick over Christmas. I got hit first then Aaron, my sis-in-law Daphne, bro-in-law Jason, sisters Dyan and Lael and April, Corgan, and finally my bro Craig. That is one tradition I hope dies this year.
-Trip to the Pacific Science Center....I ran into a friend I hadn't seen since before I was married ((hi Marcie)). So it was cool.
-And my most favorite highlight from the past week is Blake is saying "mum, mum"!! I LOVE IT!!

We're back home now and it's always so nice to come back home after being away for awhile. Aaron's brother, Nate, is here with us for a few days and the kids are loving having their Uncle here. Here's a few pictures of our Christmas.
