Hunts and Lucy with Archie-Santa.
Another exciting bonus on Christmas Eve is this awesome wood slide. The girls...well, all of us....had so much fun sliding on it. You land on this mattress at the bottom of it and then slide on the floor if you're aiming right. Josh is the best at it.
The highlight of the evening was all the dancing. After dinner, the dance music begins and it continues until there's no one dancing anymore. (We were the last ones dancing.) Huntleigh loved dancing with her Pop and B. They danced for 1 1/2 hours with only a few juice breaks. No kidding. It got her to sleep until 8:15 on Christmas morning. I think that's a record.
Lucy in her sweet "Lucy" outfit. I'm willing to pass it down to someone named Lucy when she outgrows it. Just let me know.
Christmas morning was exhilarating. It's so refreshing to experience Christmas through the eyes of children. We sang Happy Birthday to Jesus and played with the nativity as we read through the story of Jesus' birth and then passed around gifts. This doll house was the favorite gift. I spent a lot of time researching exactly the one I wanted for the girls and they love it. The fun part was that all our family was able to give the girls all the little rooms. To be honest, I love playing with it.
And this was on New Years'. I have to admit that my favorite part was spending time on myself. I love getting dressed up and pampering myself just a bit. I think every mom of young children needs that from time to time. It was a fun evening with our friends Tim and Andrea. And doesn't my husband just look so dapper in his tuxedo?! Here's to an adventure-filled Twenty Ten.
