Christmas went well. We had originally planned to get together with Spencer's family but some of them got sick so we just hung out with his parents. Christmas eve we had a traditional dinner. Clam chowder, rolls, salad, and cheesecake for dessert. We also went to the temple visitors center and watched "The Lamb of God" which was about the last days of the Savior. Our other activity of Christmas light watching was cancelled. Christmas dinner was cheesey potatoes, ham, green beans, veggie tray, jello salad, and ice cream rolls for dessert. All was delicious!!!

We had also planned to get together Christmas morning and open gifts, but due to illness we did our own thing. We were lazy. Ethan woke up around 9am so I fed him his breakfast and then made blueberry muffins and scrambled eggs for Spencer and me. Ethan took his nap around 11am so Spencer and I went back to bed. We finally opened presents around 12:30pm. Next year I don't think we'll be able to wait that long.

We didn't have a lot to open because Spencer and I got our presents early. My presents were a ticket to Missouri for my brothers wedding, a trip home to Washington, and getting my hair done. I cut off 3 inches and dyed it back to brown.

Spencer got a 58" flat screen TV (well it was a present for both of us) and a XBOX game "Guitar Hero: World Tour". It comes with drums, microphone, and guitar. Christmas day we gave each other small gifts. Spencer got 2 Christmas ties for church and I got a travel bag and a rug to put by our sliding door.

Christmas was all about Ethan anyways. He received toys and clothes. I don't think he knows what to do with all of them, but he likes them all!

I love your hair. It makes you look younger. You still have more brown than me. My red is becoming more dominate. You have about 2 inches on me, but I'm thinking about cutting in to under my chin and just keeping it that way, what do you think?

Carl and Spencer should be friends. Carl wants Guitar Hero: World Tour too. I think he just likes the idea of all the instruments together. Me, I would just prefer the guitar. Less complicated that way.
