Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hello all! We have been busy! I think that it will start to calm down a bit now... We just took the tree down today, which always makes Matt a bit sad, Christmas is by far his favorite holiday. So this is what we did (see pictures of it all below). Tommy learned a new game, we call it "sock monsters". Basically he puts socks, or mittens, or whatever he can find on his hands and pretends to attack someone. He growls and makes his "scary" face. It is hard not to laugh, but if you act flambointly scard, he cracks up. Then he does it again, again, again, again, again, again, again, again and again. We woke up at our house Christmas morning, where Santa brought me a Wii, Matt some gloves, and a sled for Tommy. We then packed up to go see Matt's grandparents in Chesaning for visiting an a fabulous dinner. Tommy got a haircut from Uncle Terry during the Christmas party, and we got to visit with a lot of extended family. Tommy's new haircut looks so good!! We then traveled to Saginaw for a brief overnight stay at my parent's house, where we got to see Tommy's cousins, which he always loves. The day after Christmas we went to Matt's parent's Saginaw townhouse for Christmas with his sister and brother-in-law and the rest of Tommy's cousins. We had dinner there, then went back to my parents house to spend the night. We then did my Grandma Fergie's Christmas party the next day, and got to see a lot of family. We left Grandma's house to travel up to Matt's parents house in Traverse City, where we spent about 5 days. It was so refreshing and fun up there. Matt and I got to play a lot of cards, and Tommy loved the bath tub, and all of the attention from Grandma and Grandpa. We all ate very well!! Then we had to leave, not that we wanted to, but I had to work on Friday, and we came back to the house. Here we have stayed, and set up a new kick butt recycling shelf in the garage. Happy New Year!
