I'd say you were both a little excited about Christmas this year.  This was our first Christmas Eve in our little house together. 
Things that made the night extra special
-watching our Dada's favorite, 'A Christmas Story'
-putting on our special Christmas Jammies, You looked like sweet little candy canes
-reading the 'The night before Christmas'
-talking about Santa and you really getting it
-our Nana having a sleep over to share a fun and special night with us

Carlsbad Christmas in Las Cruces!

This was the first year of my entire life that I did not spend Christmas in Carlsbad with my family.  It really didn't hit me until Christmas day and really hit when I got a text from Aunt Julie saying she was finding it harder not having us there than she had expected.  All was okay though because we spent the entire first week of Christmas with everyone we love so much.  The weekend before Christmas Carlsbad came to us.  Saturday, I (meaning dada) made a yummy dinner, then we opened presents and just enjoyed the company.

Tummy troubles!

This past weekend wasn't a complete bust. We saw Santa, did some Christmas shopping, and even went grocery shopping. We did all this while a nasty bug was building up ready to pounce. Mommy and daddy seem to have got the worst of it but today I'm home with a sick little Owie. I can hear his tummy rumbling just laying in bed next to him. My poor little chicken:(

Merry Christmas!

Saturday we headed out to see Santa. Owen and Paige, you were both so excited and waved and yelled to him from the gate while we waited in a thankfully short line. Owen, you asked Santa for a robot. Paige, you asked him for a pink baby doll.  Now we just wait to see if the big guy delivers!
