Christmas Part 1

We celebrated Christmas over a 2 week span, us Crakers like to celebrate things for as long as possible. For example, my birthday is on March 29th and I start celebrating on March 1. Cameron thinks that he and Ella are shortchanged because theirs is on the 2nd of July and the 6th of August. Oh well, sorry guys! We had a wonderful Christmas. Ella didn't understand the whole "Santa" concept but I know that next year will be a different story. I think it will anyway... There were a few things she did get:

1. There is that there is a big beautiful tree and I am not allowed to touch it.
2. Wrapped up boxes and pretty bags are made for Ella to destroy.
3. There are some strange sock looking things and everytime I go near them, mom tells me no.
4. Santa is a scary, scary man....
5. Christmas music is fun to dance to.

We started the Christmas season out with Mimi, Uncle Dave, and Aunt Liz coming over the weekend before. We had a delicious meal (At least I thought so) and had some fun family time. We don't get to see Liz and Dave much and it was so nice....they even spent the night!

Santa came to our house early due to traveling. I wasn't about to load up her things and take to Aliceville. There was plenty enough to load and I didn't feel like getting a UHaul.

We stayed in Aliceville for a few days and had a lovely time at the Riverhouse with the Whitley's, then JeJe and Pops' on Christmas Morning, and then the McBride get together on Saturday night. I almost forgot to mention the fact that we ended up in the ER Christmas night with a sick baby. To make a long story short, she had the flu....her fever broke a few hours later and she hasn't slowed down! PTL!

I hate to say it but I am glad that Christmas is over. It is my most favorite holiday and I can't wait for it every year, but as soon as it turns midnight on Christmas I am ready for all decorations to be down and things back to normal.

Santa only forgot one thing: an additional room for all of Ella's presents! 2009 has come and gone and the Craker Trio is looking forward to a new year full of memories and fun! God has truly blessed us in so many ways and for that we are THANKFUL!
