Preview of Harpers Ferry

26 Dec

Kerry’s dad heads back home tomorrow so we gave him some options of sites to see today and he picked Harpers Ferry. It was an easy drive to wild and wonderful West Virginia this morning to explore the town and National Park. I am exhausted from our day so here is a preview 🙂

Merry Christmas!

25 Dec

We had a great Christmas! We were a little unsure how all the excitement, family, presents, food, new routine, new toys and just general craziness would be handled by Miss H but she was perfect today.

We were all spoiled with wonderful gifts! I got a beautiful necklace from Kerry plus a new fleece, running clothes, sweaters, a leather jacket, ear muffs, two fun bracelets, chocolates and many other treats. I surprised Kerry with the Xbox plus more practical things like shirts and ties 🙂 Also, he got Xbox games, Xbox headphones, a bike light, pajamas pants, a hooded sweatshirt, books and all sorts of other things.

Miss H got spoiled by everybody. She enjoyed opening one gift at a time and then playing with whatever was inside. This unexpected extended gift unwrapping lasted from breakfast through lunch.

She got a sleeping bag for herself and a mini one for her baby.

Plus, books, markers, crayons, paper, scribble pad, snow pants, blocks, Lincoln Logs and a Dora doll.

Then, Leigh arrived with a big box.

The twins were a big hit.

Also, she discovered if she dipped her foot into the water- the footprints she could make on the Aquadoodle mat were ‘SO pretty!’

We got one family photo with everyone smiling.

We tried to get another one but someone was sitting on the floor. Can you spot the top of her head?

We were all so tired by the end of the day but not so tired that we were not laughing at wearing the Mr. Potato Head mustache.

Merry Christmas to all! Sleep tight!
