Aiken Christmas

I tried to do a slide show of pictures from Christmas but something is wrong with my computer so here are a couple pictures. We had a very busy weekend. It started off by Friday Ryan and I had our Christmas couples bunco. Then Saturday morning we went to my mom's so we could exchange gifts with my friend Maria and her family. She gave me the coolest gift, Chanel sunglasses, I love them! Sunday we had Christmas with my side of the family. The girls really got the hang of opening presents this year, I don't think I opened any of mine because they were already opened by one of them. Monday Ryan had to work so the girls and I just hung out with grandma Eloise and Aunt Christel. Later that night I took them to church. They did pretty good, Elise thought she was a princess waving to everyone whenever we had to walk up the aisle. Christmas morning was fast, Ryan and I got up and dressed before the girls so after they opened Santa presents we could head to his parents house. At the Aikens the girls had even more presents to open, and opened everyone elses. They got a huge doll house from papa and gma Aiken, Jordis especially likes it. They got so much stuff that when we got back home I had to do some major rearranging of things so eveything would fit in their room. I hope everyone that reads this had a great holiday, we sure did. Oh, tomorrow is Ryan's b-day, he is turning 26! (still a baby)

These are two projects I have been working on that I will actually keep for myself. The rest are all presents and some are going to people who read my blog. i am almost done with my christmas cards and only have two gifts left to purchase then I will be able to do what I love to do-wrap all the presents! I wonder if the girls will leave them alone once I put them under the tree, I guess I'll see soon enough.
