Kent's holiday schedule wasn't nearly as torturous as I'd anticipated. He worked Christmas Eve and Christmas day- but the days ended up being shorter than scheduled and I had extra friends and family around.
Christmas Eve he was home by four and Laney and Taylor were in from Buffalo! we celebrated with half of our normal Christmas eve festivities We did our 'takeout' smorgasbord and had chinese, pizza, subs, breadsticks, famous Cincinnati chili, shrimp, and lots of other fabulous stuff.
I was a little worried that Zeb was going to freak out or wake up thinking Santa had skipped us- but he just ended up thinking that Santa comes the night of Christmas- so it all worked out. Next year depending on Kent's schedule we'll have to make some changes- but this year was perfect!
Christmas day we went to church- and spent the afternoon staying busy making a full Christmas dinner of turkey, potatoes, pie, and everything else. Plus- Zeb and Ike had cousins to play with and I had my sis and her husband to keep me company.
I think that our family is ready for three. The van sort of cemented it. And Zeb and Ike really are excited.
