Brooklyn was SUPER excited for Christmas this year, we had Christmas Eve at Grandma & Grandpa Koberlein's house. We ate lots of good food and made and decorated sugar cookies. We decorated the gingerbread house and Brooklyn probably ate as much candy as she put on the house! Once we were stuffed full of great food and treats we came home and Brooklyn dictated a letter to Santa, set out some cookies for Santa, carrots for the reindeer, and some milk. She was so excited when she went to bed. This is the first year she has been able to get really into Christmas and it was so fun to see that twinkle in her eye about her excitement. I can't wait for Boston to be this excited too!

Christmas morning was wonderful. We had Christmas at our house for the first time in about 5 years. We'd always been traveling or at Grandma & Grandpa Koberlein's house. We woke up, got ready to open presents and then went downstairs. Here are the kids in front of the tree before the presents got torn apart.

Brooklyn was so happy that Santa listened to her wishes for a Tinkerbell. Santa did even better ad got her a Tinkerbell dress and a Tinkerbell movie and a Tinkerbell coloring book!!!!! Now she can be Tinkerbell all by herself, wings and all! Boston got some boys toys, because we have a SERIOUS lack of those in our house and Santa just couldn't let a respectable boy play with girls toys!!! Instead of candy Santa brought Boston some "real food" and he tried applesauce for the first time and LOVED it. Some highlights of the presents were: Brooklyn got "running shoes", a necklace from Daddy, clothes from Mommy, a beautiful handmade sweater from Grandma Sorensen, a Barbie princess dress from G&G Koberlein.
Boston: Books, toys, "running" shoes.-Brooklyn calls anything with laces "running shoes"
Greg: Heart rate monitor watch, running shirts(Hood To Coast here you come!), ornament from Boston, Foo Fighter's CD, See's Candy from Brookyln (of course to share)
Heidi: $ for a carpet cleaner (AND I LOVE IT!!!), books, gift cards for clothes, family history from my Mom & Dad, a promise to build shelves in the garage from Greg.
It was a wonderful Christmas and we sure feel blessed.
