Christmas has entered the Gehring household full force.
On Friday, Nikki and our family got together, and opened Link’s first waive of Christmas gifts. If facebook ever finishes encoding the video, I’ll be sure to post it for all to see. We then watched a movie and ate popcorn (it’s what we do!)
Saturday got off to an early start. We dropped off the Jeep to get some new tires (maybe more on this in another post), and then began Christmas shopping. Link did great, we went from store to store, and I believe, only had 1 pit stop, and no fussiness. After about 4 hours of shopping, we returned home to prepare for the evening activities.
Saturday night we had our first of 5 Christmas celebrations. This was Amber’s mom’s side. We ate lots of good food, played games, and of course exchanged gifts. Lincoln especially loved a new ball he got, and Amber was a huge fan of a pair of shoes and socks that he got.
Sunday got off to a pretty crazy start as well. I spent the morning at church. We sand a new song today that I really liked (Hillsong – Born is the King). After that, it was again off to home, where we got ready for Christmas 2 of 5.
Link again got some amazing gifts. All I can say is we are all truly blessed.
Amber’s parents got me 2 expansions for Ticket to Ride (Asia and the Alvin and Dexter pack). We played a ultra mega game of Ticket to Ride USA (55 Trains and Alvin and Dexter) and then headed home after yet another full day, again feeling truly truly blessed.
All in all, it’s been an extremely full weekend… now to lead in to an extremely full week. Thank you all for making Christmas so great all ready, and it’s barely just begun. Enjoy this parting song 🙂
