Wow, I guess we've been pretty busy lately! I had a doctor appointment a week or two ago where we did the triple screen test (the one where they check for neurological defects and such.) That came back normal, so that was a relief. We got the news that Doug's biological dad passed away about a week ago, and we've been dealing with the loss of that. Doug took a couple days off of work, and a couple days later, it was Christmas! We spent Christmas with Doug's family this year, where we drove down to Payson to his grandpa's house Christmas Eve, then spent the night at his parent's house in Spanish Fork. Doug's grandpa has Santa come ever year for everyone to sit on his lap and say what they want. As you can see in the slideshow, Jack was more than happy to see Santa from a distance, but didn't want anything to do with him up close. We enjoyed a tasty meal, and I brought a homemade banana cream pie to add to the dessert pile. We then came back to Doug's parent's house and put Jack to bed, as he was exhausted. We watched a little TV, and then I hit the hay before 10:30. I know, lame pregnant woman.
We all had breakfast Christmas morning, then went down and opened presents. Jack seems to be happy with his loot, although, he didn't enjoy opening up his share. He was done with all that jazz about 15 minutes into it. Maybe he'll be more excited next year, right? We hung out with Doug's family the rest of the day, and spent the night again, where we woke up to a huge storm the day after Christmas! We made it home okay, but had snow drifts in our driveway that were 2 feet tall in some places! Luckily, we lived on that side of the street, because the wind blew some 3 and 4 feet snow drifts into the driveways across the street. Doug just plowed through them and into the garage. I'll admit, I was puckering.
The rest of the weekend was nice and relaxing, just hanging out together, and going to church on Sunday. That was such a nice way to end the week!
Plus, Jack started up with this on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas to us!
