Merry Christmas 2008

Our Christmas Eve and Christmas Day came a day later than the rest of the world since we didn't get home until the morning of Christmas Day. Thankfully Alexa didn't know any different so she wasn't upset at all by it. After we finally arrived home on the morning of the 25th (thank you to our wonderful friends, the Wilkes, who turned on our heat the night before, bought us some groceries to get us through everything being closed on Christmas Day, and for picking us up from the airport), we got organized and had our own little Christmas Eve. We opened our Christmas jammies and Alexa was so cute...she kept saying "tane-too Santa".
Here's our little tree...a little Charlie Brownish but Alexa loved it! Kevin and I had fun putting Alexa's Dora Trike together that evening while watching 'White Christmas'. The trike is a gift from Alexa's Uncle David. He sent us a gift card since he had our name for Christmas and we bought the trike before heading to Canada.
It was a BIG hit with Alexa...eventually! She wasn't quite sure what to think at first! But it's her favorite thing now.
Despite our unexpected delay, we really enjoyed our own little family Christmas and the time we were able to spend together and to focus on the birth and life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and wish you all the best in this New Year!

I'm glad that you got home safe! Your friends are awesome. It wouldn't have been much fun coming home to a cold house with no food.
We're not sure from the video, but does Alexa like her bike now? She seemed a little scared.

Wow, that was a lot of catching up. I'm glad you guys had a safe/fun trip and a very happy Christmas.
