Our last Christmas in Ohio

every year my mom gets each of my children an ornament for our tree, and this year this is what they each opened. when we opened it i got that hard-to-swallow-don't-want-to-talk-or-i'll-cry kind of feeling. it really hit me that this is our last christmas in this house, in ohio, and with our good friends that we've made. i imagine i'll get that same feeling every year i hang this ornament on our tree.

we started at 8:30am on christmas morning. it was beautiful. everyone slept in. J & G were little lucky heads from the pile of presents sent to them from their grandparents, from santa, and us. J was the most excited about a remote control helicopter his papa got him on his last trip to china. he has played with it non-stop since. G loved her bee "pillow pet" and new camera. she's been taking pictures of EVERYTHING! good ole' super baby came running out and hopped right into his "cozy coupe" and stayed in it all day long! after a great morning we had a wonderful dinner with good friends. what a wonderful christmas. what a wonderful life.
