What have we been up to?

(prepare yourself for an overload of us, must catch up all in this one post!)
Christmas, Christmas, more Christmas, New Years, and Oh, did I mention Christmas? That is right! We had a Christmas overload! First with my Dad stepmom, stepbrother and his family, then with Scott's parents, then here at home with just us, then at my Mom's with my sister.
I already posted Christmas with my Dad, so I won't bore you with that again. The next Christmas was with Scott's parents. Our original plan was to go to Ohio for Christmas (or the week before), but things came up and we were not able to make the trip, so his parents came here. We were really disappointed that we were not able to visit with Erin (Scott's sister) and her kids, but hopefully we will be able to get up there this summer. Anyway, we had a great weekend with them. We always hate to see them go. Here are a few pictures of the weekend with them.

We went out to eat at The Olive Garden. The boys were getting restless inside. This a picture of the kids after we ate, waiting for everyone else to come out.

Then it was Christmas morning! Which I am going to leave for a separate post that I will do tomorrow! Sorry, I had every intention to put it all together when I started, but there are too many pictures to add to this post.

So let's fast forward to the day after Christmas...We went to my moms and had Christmas yet again. It was like Santa all over again! Presents galore! My mom and sister really do go over board on the Christmas gifts! Boy will my kids be sad the day my sister has kids of her own and don't spend as much on them! Here are a few pictures.

Chris had way more help than he needed (or wanted) to open his presents!
My sister got the boys the game Elefun. They love it (as does Delaney)!

Presents gallore is right. My son always makes out like a champ during Christmas. I have to watch how many toys I get him because I know he will get so many I will lose count.

I left you a gift on my blog. Hope you like.

I think it is great that Chris got so much help with his gifts!

OH! I wanted to get that game for E&W but wasn't sure they could handle it (it says 3 and up, right?) but, your boys get how to do it??? If so, I am buying it!
