Christmas marathon week oh my!

So Christmas is always quite the production here between all of the family we have living near. We started off the marathon on xmas eve opening presents with my brother since he was working on Christmas. Then we headed to do presents with my step family. Then Christmas morning we started the day at my Dad's house, eventually migrated to my Mom's and finally we ended up in the mountains with hubbs family. After leaving the mountains we made the trip to see hubbs grandparents and extended family and then we pretty much passed out from pure exhaustion, granted this all took place over an entire WEEK. It's a lot of hustle and bustle and not so much relaxing... after this new baby comes I think we're going to have to start a new tradition... everyone can migrate to OUR house for once!

We had a blast though with the little dude enjoying his first 'real' Christmas. He really could care less about the presents, ripping the paper wasn't of too much interest to him, but the toys... the toys he enjoyed. Our house looks like Toys R Us now... seriously. Santa was very generous to HL to say the least.

One of the best things we did this holiday was take the dude skiing for the first time!! We didn't have very high expectations considering that he's only 13 months old but we figured he would have fun, and boy were we right. He loved it, he laughed the entire way down the mountain, he shouted at the people on the chairlift, he chewed on his mittens, and had a blast.

And now we're back to home sweet home a week later oiy! Time to unpack, organize the plethera of toys, get back into the swing of things and oh yea get ready for New Years. I guess our relaxation will have to wait until 2011 some time huh?
