Swag is Good, aka "Christmas in North Carolina"

So we're nearing the end of Christmas here in Year 2 of Kaitlyn (yeah, she's technically turning two in January, but this is her second Christmas and she knows what's up), and it was a stunning success.

We learned a lot this Christmas. First, 7&7s and Red Oak go quite well together throughout the day. Second, the Press Your Luck game for the Wii is quite possibly the most fun I've had with the Wii since we've purchased it. Third, I truly like North Carolina Christmases that don't rain. If it weren't for the rain, we probably could have played nine or so holes since it was well north of 50 degrees.

But most of all, we learned that Christmas is fun with Kaitlyn. Even though it took a little while to get her going (apparently this girl forgot it was Christmas because she didn't wake up until 8 a.m.), there was no stopping her once she did start chugging along today.

She was a present opening machine, a great helper for passing out gifts to everyone, and a playing fool, taking time with everything she was lucky enough to get from her family and friends. Granted, the baby dolls and art desk took more time from, say, the books and socks, but she took more than a passing glance at those, too.

For those of you that I haven't personally talked with today, Michelle, Kaitlyn, Boo and myself wish you all a Merry Christmas. We love and appreciate all of you. Even if you didn't send a gift.
