And so this is Christmas

Christmas has come and gone (mostly) for the Hill household! On Wednesday, we had a high of 73, by Thursday afternoon the wind chill was 22 and there were snow flurries. Even if you only look at actual temperature, we had a 40 degree shift in temperatures over a 36 hour period. Craziness.

We ended up celebrating here at home with my family. We're "presents on Christmas Eve" people because we're just too impatient to wait. So after a Texas dinner of brisket, beans, potato salad and cornbread, we all watched the kids dig into their presents and then opened our own. Lots of great gifts this year! The girls were worn out and anxious about Santa, so they started asking to go to bed early. They slept in a little this morning (got up just after 7---late for them) and after stockings from Santa, another short visit with the grandparents and playing with their new toys, they both crashed at naptime. It's hard work visiting with all those people!!

I think it's safe to say Sierra's favorite present was her scooter (which she's been riding all around the house) and Sedona's was the plasma car I won from Mommy23Monkeys, which surprised me, I didn't think she'd quite understand it, but she loves it!

(She's been riding by herself, but she was letting daddy have some fun too)
