Christmas 2013

Christmas was fun again this year. Dana barely slept Christmas night eve, but unfortunately it was not from excitement, but from feeling sick and general pregnancy discomfort. Talvyn woke up at 6:00 and we were happy to get up too as we had both already been awake. Talvyn tried to wake up Daxtyn, but he didn't want to at first. Finally Talvyn told the still mostly asleep Daxtyn that a certian video game might be out in the living room for Christmas and Daxtyn popped right up. Dana wanted to just lie down, but we cruelly made her sit up so we could open presents. It was mostly a video game Christmas. Mario, Luigi, Link, Rayman, and the Lego Marvel heroes came for the WiiU and 3DS. Daxtyn was especially happy to get his own 2DS. He kissed the box. "Now I don't have to be jealous of my brother!" he exclaimed. Dana got clothes that she wont' even be able to wear until the baby comes and a silver necklace with a charm with her children's names engraved. Having Addowyn engraved in silver means there is no way to change the name now. Talvyn also got a couple of books. He loves the Origami Yoda series and got the one he was missing. He also got a book by Neil Gaiman called Fortunately, the Milk which he had read by the next day. We didn't go anywhere for Christmas this year. Breakfast was cinnamon rolls and cheesy eggs with orange juice and milk. Christmas dinner was ham and mashed potatoes. We spent the afternoon relaxing, playing new games, and Facetiming with the Fuhrmann grandparents who were staying in Utah and the Willams grandparents in Darlington. In fact, being off from work and school, we really didn't do much for the next two days. Sometimes it is nice to just not go, go, go like usual.
