Christmas 2008

Since the boys' plans to spend Thanksgiving with their grandparents in memphis was unexpectedly cancelled, they went to spend a long weekend with them mid-December. They celbrated "Early Christmas" there with their Aunts Holly & Elizabeth, Uncles Alex & Brian, cousins Grant & Elizabeth Claire, and Gram & Papoo Houston. They LOVED it! Hopefully I'll have more photos to post of this visit soon ;)

Two nights before Christmas (Xmas Eve Eve?) we went to the Asheville Pizza and Brew to watch a free Xmas movie. The kids had a blast, except Reed who wasn't feeling good - he and I went home early, but Clay stayed to enjoy the rest with the Sloans and Fotis

As you can imagine, Christmas with 6 kids is completely chaotic and lovely all together. The kids woke up when it was still dark, they opened their stockings and legos from Santa ... and didn't wake me up until 7:30 (how convenient that Santa always gives them something to occupy their time for a while!). Soon after, the Sloans came in, and the present opening commenced! We had hoped for a slow, relaxed present opening, involving taking turns and acknowledging the giver... haha! the kids had other plans - I think they had torn through everything in about 10 minutes.
