Merry Christmas!

We had an amazing Christmas 2008!!! I can't believe I haven't posted in almost 2 weeks. I've been busy baking, cooking, wrapping, decorating, visiting, packing, cleaning, etc. On Christmas eve we headed over to my parents for dinner and Lily opened her presents there. The last picture on this post is her new present from Uncle Greg and Katie. It involves a microphone and dancing so she is just crazy about it! We went to Christmas Eve mass at 6PM and it was circus. Lately, Lily has not been the angel she once was when we went to church. All she wants to do is walk around. She also likes to play "wet noodle." She flings her body backwards and literally becomes limp. It makes it impossible to hold her!!! Anyways, we came back to our house for dessert and more present opening. Tyler and I got Andrew The Office game and that's what he got us! We had a fierce game of winning Schrute Bucks!

Then we ventured to Chicago on Christmas morning. We had brunch and then opened presents!! You can see another picture below of Lily enjoying one of her presents. We played lots of great games with the Mayer's including the never ending game of Risk!
Hanging out with Mike. Lily especially loved being at Grandma and Grandpa's because Grandpa was sneaking her whipped cream whenever he could.

On Christmas day with Dad!

Lily's very own shopping cart!

We got back in town on Sunday night. It's was great to be able to be with both sides of the family!!!!

I can't believe how old Lily is looking latey! Mike looks like a natural with Lily. Can you say babysitter?

We hear ya about the church behavior. And sorry to say, a year later it's not much better. William doesn't want to run around anymore. Now he just wants to talk really, really, really loud. So you have that to look forward to.

Happy New Year Mayers. Hopefully we'll get a chance to meet up in 2009!
