The Holidays!

We spent Thanksgiving in Michigan with Ben's family and then went to Colorado for Christmas. We had a great time. Although, the plane trip to Colorado was a little nerve-racking with the boys on our laps! Just a few highlights: Ethan's diaper became defective 1/2 hour into the first flight and Ben got the overflow on his lap -quite a puddle if I do say so myself-hee-hee! During our lay-over, we grabbed something to eat and while Ben was ordering, Ethan got his head stuck between a trash can and a pole (why do kids stick their heads in small places??) Anyway, we made it there and back fine. I do love the holidays - except next year I want to get the Christmas tree up, the cookies and candy made, the family picture taken, the shopping, and the Christmas cards done EARLY so I can enjoy the holidays more -I think I said that last year!

Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas. Your mom looks like she loves being a Grandma and I couldn't beleive how grown up your sisters are! Wow! They are not little girls anymore. Your boys are cuter than ever.
