My Favorite Christmas Memories for 2008

The best Christmas pictures are coming. My sister-in-law Jen took some great shots while she was here and she's sending me a CD, but I wanted to post just a few that I had in the meantime.

Sophie's undying love for Jackie, Wes and Jen's chocolate lab. (I love her, too.)
Stockings. My favorite stocking stuffer was my Edward the vampire poster from Bobby. He's so funny. (Bobby, not Edward.) He hangs in my closet now. (Edward, not Bobby.)
the Wii. The Wii is AWESOME. We didn't get one this year, but we got to play with Wes and Jen's. We wanted to, but we know our kids we'll be a lot more excited about it a couple years from now. So we're holding out. You've never seen someone so spazzy as me trying to play tennis. I was totally impressed with Hunter's tennis skills and Colton and Nicole rocked at bowling.
The last day Wes and Jen were here we played this for about 2 hours straight. Bobby and I have continued to play ever since they left. After playing about 30 games, we finally started keeping a running total. I'm at 5 and Bobby has 3. I came up with this idea right after Bobby's winning streak ended apparently.

One of my other favorite memories is being matchy-matchy with my sister-in-law Jen. We opened new pajamas on Christmas Eve and Jen and I picked out the same pajamas from Target. I don't have a picture of this, but I'll add one once I get Jen's pictures. Then on Christmas Day we wore matching track suits that I bought for us at Old Navy. They're velour. I love track suits. Remember how trendy those were like 5 or 6 years ago? Well I'm in the habit of hitting fashion trends about 5 years too late. Then, she wrapped up a pair of pajama pants she bought for me at Old Navy. When I opened them, I laughed because I had purchased the very same pair for myself the weekend before. I asked her to keep them so that we could continue dressing the same.

To be continued.... hopefully. I haven't been a very reliable blogger as of late.
