Christmas at our house.

Tonight was the night Chris and I celebrated our Christmas together, as he is working for the next 4 days on graveyard shift, which means I won't see him until Saturday. So we decided to have our little Christmas celebration tonight. We had a placed a budget limit this year to stockings only, with the adoption and the economy right now being a large factor. So, of course we blew the budget. I got him a Sirius Stiletto 2, which is like and IPOD for satelitte radio and a bunch of small things for his stocking and he got me a new pair of booths that I love, and a new pair of running shoes that I also love, two things I wanted but couldn't justify buying. He also got me 3 christmas bears/snowmen as decorations. Love it all.

We also got each other something for Kaysen, I had given him a baseball toy game and a buddy doll and Chris bought him the "Elmo Live" toy, well it's the best and the cutest thing ever. We tested it out and he gives hugs, kisses, tells stories, jokes, plays games its just great. I love it and know it will be a hit. I think it was a great idea for us to exchange a gift for him, it showed that he is already in our hearts and with us during this holilday season. It's such a great feeling to walk in the living room and see children's toys under the tree, and he's not even here yet.

The next few days will be pretty busy for us, Christmas Eve will be at mom's house (tradition), Christmas dinner will be here, and then on the 27th my brother and sister in law arrive and they we have dinner and gift exchange at my sister's and then brunch on the 28th at mom's.

We are having family over for New Year's Eve, well I am anyways as Chris will be working on that day as well. I figure let him work this year and get all the extra pay as next year he will be needing time off, if not around Christmas, shortly after.

Have a safe and happy holiday season, here's to 2009, where many of our lives will be changed forever. 2009, the year we become parents.
