All I Wanted for Christmas....

Was 2 sets of 2 front teeth!! I did so hope that Jared would lose his front teeth by Christmas too, but no joy--he's just not that interested in wiggling them, regardless of promised tooth fairy bribes...

We had a lovely Christmas here in Bahama. The weather was mild, which was good since we needed to throw Josh's new football out on the front lawn in our pajamas. (Good thing Santa brought such good looking new pajamas!) Later Josh and Jason tried out their new lacrosse gear, resulting in a few minutes of worry that Josh had indeed broken Jason's nose. Thankfully it appears to be ok. The girls were thrilled that Santa brought real American Girl dolls and they have not put them down since. Ok--maybe for just a minute...Did I mention that we also got DDR--a huge hit! Here's a little slideshow I made for you guys so you could see our fun.

Cindy,
That was an awesome video!!!
Your kids look like they were having a total blast. I love it that you had music with just the right beat for the video (of course you did!)
It was so great that when one triplet was dancing, the others were nearby, also dancing.
However, Russ was my favorite!!!
GOOOO Russ!

Cindy Lynn was the one who thought of the music--I couldn't believe that the beat worked just perfect. I love it when it happens like that!

Savannah and Leigh Ann just watched the video and were very impressed. Savannah decided she would like to write to her cousins, so here goes:

Cindy said...

Wow--Sounds like a good Christmas for Savannah! I'll get the little kids to write to her later.

Josh said...

There is one thing missing.... the title is "All I want for christmas..." and it is after christmas =P just had to point that out.

Josh said...

And aother thing... I did NOT throw it in anger at Jason. It just "popped" out of his net and hit him. Not my fault at ALL. -__-

This reminds me of what it was like visiting Val's house last Christmas! What do you say to a DDR dance-off at the beach?

somestratton said...

Well, Brent got DDR too, so I think that DDR at the beach is a grand idea! It will be crazy. Cindy, your kids are so cute. lilly loved watching them!

Marg will LOVE the dancing! We may NEVER get her into the water though!
We'll have to make sure there are no bedrooms underneath.
We played ddr at thanksgiving at Bob's sister's house in Mapleton and they ended up with a burst pipe downstairs from all the jumping. Good thing for insurance, right?

Cindy said...

A burst pipe! Wow! Amber, I think if there's a place at the beach where we can ddr without being too noisy it would be great fun. But we'll have to be able to hide the pads from Marg, or she'll play 24/7! ;)

Cindy said...

By the way--Josh did NOT hurt Jason--they were playing catch with their lacrosse sticks, and the ball hit Jason's stick and bounced onto his poor nose....

Nathan & Margaret said...

Woah, this was inspiring. Makes me want to get out my ddr pads which are not as good as your ddr pads. I loved this video. I think it made my week!

Jeremy and Maria said...

We have ddr pads. also, they are super fun. Same type as Cindy. Love you guys.
