We had a wonderful Christmas with my mom this year. After a little last minute shopping on Christmas Eve, we let the kids open their gift from Nana which is always a hit. This year she got them a Wii. They were jumping up and down and SO excited. Caroline has wanted a Wii forever and of course reminds us that she is the only person her age who does not own one! Claire was so cute opening her gifts and Jack could hardly contain himself. We went to our church that evening for a candlelight service. It was so nice, we heard a sermon on the birth of Jesus, did communion, lit candles and sang. I looked over at Caroline and her friends and they were so behaved and singing their hearts out! On Christmas day, we opened presents and mom cooked. We played all day with the new ping pong table, legos, video games, cards and the new army set! The day after Christmas, mom and I enjoyed the sales at the Leesburg Outlets. We spend the day shopping our hearts out! Thank you Chris for playing with the kids all day and letting us enjoy our passion! Saturday, we treated mom to The Nutcracker at the Warner Theater in downtown DC. We took the metro which was an experience for her. For dinner we went to Gordon Biersh which was delicious as always! Tomorrow we are sad that she is leaving but are excited to spend time with the Sandlin fam!
