Christmas Fun!

We had a little Christmas party with a group of friends.  All of the kids brought a book and we exchanged them.  We had great food and lots of fun.  We got some really great books.  Ella got some princess books which were a huge hit.  Calvin got a curious george book which is so great and suitable for my little monkey and Ollie got an awesome christmas book with cd. 

Here’s little Miss Bella soooo cute!

Here’s Tristan with Ollie!

Monty has off of school now until after New Years.  We decided to do some fun stuff while he is on break.  We are excited to get together with family and friends.  Yesterday we went to go see Alvin and the chipmunks.  It was very good the kids really liked it.  We also visited santa and of course Monty told him a completely different toy than what he wanted a couple of weeks ago.  Should be interesting.  :)  I just love this time of year.  We have some great traditions that I look forward to every year.  When I was young we always had pizza on Christmas eve so we have been doing that in our house now too we also exchange names with the kids and get to open them on Christmas eve.  We went shopping yesterday for those gifts.  What a nightmare!!!  Imagine 4 kids 5 years old and younger in the toy section at a super packed walmart.  We also had to hide them from each other so Todd and I had to keep switching kids.  Monty got Calvins name, Ella got Monty and Calvin got Ella.  We excluded Oliver this year.  After a good 1 1/2 hours in walmart we were ready to leave with 3 crying kids.  Ella was upset because she wanted to see what she got from Calvin.  Calvin was upset because he wanted Elmo and Ollie was upset because he had had enough!  Oh the fun!
