The Peapod Christmas Report

It snowed here ... a lot. 13 inches total, which was enough to last through Christmas day.

Wednesday, we went to see the Rockettes Christmas Extravaganza, which was a lot of fun. They had some amazing computer generated backgrounds, including a tour of NYC.

Next up was Christmas at Michael's dad and step-mom's house. Pemmy made a delicious lunch and we spent a peaceful afternoon exchanging gifts and visiting.
Check out this pretty little girl -

Definitely had some fun! Goofy little boy!

Got a pretty good group shot.

Brenna took a picture of us.

The sunset that night reflected off the snow and the water - beautiful!

When we got home, Brenna left this letter for Santa.

Christmas Morning:

This is Brenna on Christmas morning 2002....

And this is Carrie on Christmas morning 2009 - same outfit.

All three kiddos with the hats I made them for Christmas.

After we opened gifts at home, we drove to my parents for Christmas dinner.

Rebecca and Chris
Stephen and Kristin

And that's my mom........
We played a great game called "What's Yours Like?" and ate lots of yummy food. Unfortunately, we stayed too late and had to drive home through heavy fog over icy roads, while listening to Carrie scream.

Saturday, Rebecca and Chris came by to play with the kids a little before leaving for home. Then we went to Michael's mom and step-dad's to celebrate Christmas.

Cousins - Brenna and Emma

By the end of the night, I felt about like this.... out of color, out of focus, and a bit fuzzy.

We got home and absolutely crashed. Sunday evening the kids had a dinner/movie date with Uncle Stephen and Aunt Kristin. They went to see The Chipmunks, while Michael, Carrie and I had dinner at Firebirds. It was a great evening!

Christmas 2009.

Brenna's note to Santa was so cute. You have to keep that forever. Did Santa write her back? Glad you had a fun Christmas!

I never thought I would see your mom wearing antlers. Did Brenna talk her into it? j/k
