Random Christmas Post...

My parents got a hotel room while they were here so that Solon could show them his latest swim moves.  We all enjoyed sending our family down under this shot as they were boasting about their Christmas Eve sunbathing, yes we are competitive.
 We all had fun acting like kids, doing cannonballs, and running from hot tub to pool and back again...we had the place to oursevles because I am pretty sure everyone else stays with family when they come to visit (but in their defense did stay with us for 50% of said visit!).  And as my dad said it was all for Solon....I tell you my kids are spoiled!

We also fit in quite a few games of Settlers of Catan and the many variations.  We love, love, love this game and well let's just say I won my fair share, thankyouverymuch!  It is on like donkey kong....there might be some blood shed along the way....
...and of course my parents got Solon a box of 5 million track pieces so now the train construction can go from room to room.  We made several very long tracks and the boy was in love....
...and Vera loved her cradle and high chair, oh wait, I mean her baby's cradle and high chair!
And of course no Christmas celebration would be complete without a little "Happy Birthday" diddy to our savior...
...and my family room....those that know me well know that this was not how it looked when we went to bed.  I can only handle so much of it...before it was stowed away in his rightful homes (I am still working on re-organizing after Christmas but you know I love to organize!).

It was a wonderful Christmas and we were sooooo glad my family could join us.  We did a little post-Christmas shopping at Target on the 26th with my mom and sister and scored some good deals on decor and wrapping paper before they departed.  We then loaded up the ol' stationwagon, er, I mean SUV and hit the road to Nana and Papa's house!  More Christmas fun-ness to come!
