The kids on the way
(Caleb's first road trip facing forward)
The 23rd was a relaxed day, we went to church in the morning (heard Matt preach) and then spent the rest of the day around the house, enjoying being on vacation, the kids played, we enjoyed the beautiful weather, Philip and I went for a wonderful night run and looked at all the Christmas lights in the neighborhood, and we watched "The Christmas Card" (Jeff and I watch this every Christmas). =)
Caleb snoozing on the couch
Keenan playing Mario Cart
(he's quite good!)
After church (while we were waiting for Mom and Jeff to get back from church), I did this drawing on the Etch a Sketch (my first since my Etch a Sketching craze in Mexico in June of 2011).
Christmas Eve brought lots of yummy food preparations, family coming over and some pre Christmas gifts!
Keenan and Isaac playing Life
All the stockings!
Reagan and Caleb (the oldest and youngest grandkids)
Jessica and I attempted to copy a fruit tree Mom found online - if not tree-like it was delicious!
The table all set and ready (we had our big dinner on Christmas Eve)
The (goofy) kid's table
The beautiful tree and gifts
Riah and Grandpa
Erik and his girlfriend, Kara
Comet and Isaac
I thought this was funny - all three boys crowded around Isaac's iPod
Jessica biting in to the star on the remains of the tree =)

Soo many fun things inside (including lots of fun stuff from Grandma and Grandpa's trip to Hawaii!)

The kids watching a Charlie Brown Christmas in the kitchen
Somehow, during dinner, Erik mentioned needing new underwear. Since Philip had his name this year, I decided that I just HAD to make him some underwear before Christmas morning! I got an old t-shirt from Jeff (which happened to have "Eberts" on the back!!) and cut out some underwear..
Here I am sewing them together =)
Philip and I stayed up late, working on Keenan's Christmas gift... we built some of his nearly 6,000 new Legos into a giant "K"!
So much more to come...
