Merry Christmas!!

Well, I'm still anxiously awaiting my Secret Santa present, but I guess I'll have to survive a few more days. In the meantime, look what Santa Steve brought me :-)
Church was beautiful last night. Amazing music by The Brown Sisters . Good conversation and laughter were had with family at the pizza parlour and then we watched Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull before sending the kids to bed with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. We woke to screams of "I GOT A FISH! I GOT A FISH!" and now that the coffee has hit my brain, it's time to get ready to head out for our family celebration at Steve's parents.

I leave you with my very favorite Mai video. I hope this Christmas has brought out the child in your heart:

This video is precious! Love the joy that kids have...especially around this time of year. And Love the name funny about your son using it in the place of "my". Elliana is actually the female version of Elijah. If she was a boy she would have been name Eli or Elijah. :) Hope you have a great day in Eugene Julie!

Amanda - I'll have to ask our friends how they picked their Ell"y"anna's name.

Aw I am sorry that you didn't receive your gift on time! I mailed it on the 21st, so it is probably my fault that it is late. The gift is on its way!! By the way, I'm your secret santa haha. I didn't want to ruin the surprise but my lateness warrants it!

Merry Christmas!
