I'm not sure where the past week has gone, but it is gone. Christmas was so much fun this year. We headed down to Raleigh to be with the Baker's and Charlies mom. Henry had a blast with "Oulia", "Deenie", Uncle Steven and Grandma. We are still working on the sleeping situation but it is getting a little better.
Thursday we headed over to a Kids museum in Raleigh called Marbles. It was a great museum and we were in total shock on the price. It was only $5, yes $5! We have a kids museum in Baltimore and I think it is like $15 a person! Henry and Julia had a great time playing make believe with all the exhibits.
Friday was Christmas Eve. We kind of hung around and then went to lunch. We headed out to church with a very cranky Henry. He lasted maybe ten minutes at church. When church was over he melted and I mean melted into a scary demon child. I ended up not going to dinner and taking him home because he had fallen asleep in the car. They did bring me home some food.
Christmas morning was a BLAST! The kids came running down the hall to see all of their loot. Santa made Deenie's family room look like Toys R Us, there was so much stuff. Neither of them knew what to do first. I think we opened gifts for close to two hours there was so much stuff! I was treated very well...Pandora charms, new Uggs, NorthFace Jacket, robe and lots of other little things.
That night as we were going to bed it started to snow...and snow....and snow. We got up the next morning to about six inches of snow! We were trying to wait until it had gotten a little warmer before we hit the road home so we took the kids sledding in the driveway. Their faces lit up when they went down the hill in the saucer. Henry might have been wearing a pink snowsuit. I'm sure when I pull out the pictures when he is older, he is not going to be happy with us.
The reason we had to get home was that my Nana had passed away last week and her service is tomorrow in PA. We are leaving tonight to make the four hour trip up there. Henry is staying home with Grandpa and Gayle.
Thank you so much Deenie and Uncle Steve for hosting us, we can't wait to do it again!
