Happy holidays

Today I am enjoying some alone time with
2 chubby babies
Christmas music
and a snowstorm out the window.


My Christmas goals this year:

More of the same - I always feel like I'm physically in the same place as my kids, but not always with them, you know? Driving, cleaning, making dinner, mmm hmming over the computer.... but now I just want to enjoy them.

Playing the "Sleigh Ride" duet with my mom without totally botching it (this may be next year's goal too. I have no piano so I only play about 2 times a year when I happen to be at home.) But that's probably ok since my brother, who is far superior to me on the piano botched it last year (ok, granted, he never practiced it), so I figured I could try this year and not do much worse. :)

Figure out how to not look totally lame with my serious lack of Christmas presents. Pawn it off as trying to not be so commercial? :)

Eat lots of Christmas goodness and not gain any weight.

Merry Christmas everyone!

And P.S. Yes, the flight sucked. I was a little hopeful as the first couple hours were actually not too bad, and even a little cute watching Phoenix snuggle up to Cash to watch the DVD player. But Cash got tired of the snuggling, the babies got tired of not sleeping, and it was all downhill after that. They slept 20 minutes of the whole flight. Luckily we sat by a few teenagers who just cranked up their Ipods.

I love that picture also. It amazes me how different the twins look from Cash. It just makes me wonder what my little guys is going to look like. Sorry the flight stunk! We are actually going to Miami in March, and I am NOT looking forward to that flight either. :( The hours of torture is worth being able to see family. Hope you have a Merry Christmas, and that you keep posting while you are gone!

Dear Jen, I love your new blog. That photo is precious. Cash...those eyes. Unforgettable... and Phoenix is getting away from the baby look and to being one of the guys. Good that he loves his big brother. Thank you, thank you for the several years of your wonderful blogging.Aunt LeJeune

I do NOT envy your flight.. I think the most stressed out I EVER get is when I'm flying with my kids. I absolutly hate the anxiety and stress. but sometimes you just gotta do it. I DO envy your time in Utah so very, very much. I hope you have a lovely christmas. I miss you a lot!! that picture is darling.
