Holiday Fun

Mr. Frisby and I have had a very busy and exciting holiday season. Two of my sisters and their families came into town, so there were many fun activities planned. For this post, I will just stick with Christmas Eve and Christmas. The Sabins arrived in time for Christmas and our festivities started on Christmas Eve. We had appetizers for dinner, played games, acted out the nativity, and had a great time hanging out. Then it was time to get the kids to bed so Santa could make his deliveries.

Christmas morning was the typical frenzy of present opening with it culminating in my mom's near hysterics over getting an iPhone. I don't know if I've ever seen a better reaction to a present. Thank goodness we had the video camera rolling. I might even post the video if I get ambitious enough. After all the excitement, Christmas took a turn for the worse when we (and by we I mean I) dropped our big kid camera. The lens was definitely busted. But we didn't know if the camera still worked, so we had to search for the lens from Mr. Frisby's old film SLR. Christmas was saved when we switched out the lens and the camera was once again operable. But, the lens is not quite as good as the broken one, so it looks like we have our next big purchase all planned out.

Let the wild rumpus begin!

In spite of the camera mishap, Christmas was good and it was wonderful to enjoy it with family. We had a lovely Christmas dinner and enjoyed the day in typical eat, relax, play games, eat again, relax again fashion. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
