We hope everyone had a good Christmas holiday. Of course our time off has flown by and one more day until we are back to work. Despite some sort of influenza virus that ravaged both Elizabeth and Daddy for a good week each we still had a good time. We kept to our tradition and went to Christmas Eve mass with the girls and they enjoyed the children's service and learned about why we celebrate Christmas. Elizabeth had a great time Christmas morning she woke up at 2:00 am and proceeded to open her stocking therefore was pinned down by me and we all slept in until 8:00 which was a real treat. She received the Tangled hair braider princess that was top on her list and as soon as she came in the living room despite being wrapped in heavy paper was greeted by a yelping puppy in a box (one that requires batteries we are not going there with a live one) once unwrapped she discovered GoGo the walking puppy which she loves.
We had a great Christmas breakfast with Grandma Ellie and Grandpa Boris and was spoiled by them. We ended our day at Grams and Gramps house with her cousins Madison and Danica and once again was spoiled again with her Video Girl Barbie (a total change from Rocky the talking dump truck last year). Of course there were some dragons, hot wheels cars and dinos as gifts but I am loving the fact that Barbies were top of her list for Christmas. As usual we have spent a large portion of our holiday trying to find room for all her new goods and I think a trip to IKEA may be in the future. Mommy and Daddy shared a gift and we now have a better camera so improved pictures will be in the future.
