And in a blink it was over…

I cannot belive that today is December 31st – where did the holidays go? We’ve been running from gathering to gathering, trying to enjoy every moment, but honestly – it has been hard.  I’ve been sick with a never ending sinus infection, and we’ve had our “moments” with out sweet little toddler (hey – he’s two and you know what they say about two-year olds!).  For the most part though, we had a wonderful holiday.  There were 6 gatherings in so many days, but luckily we didn’t have to travel very far since our family lives pretty close by.   It was so much fun seeing Christmas through Alex’s eyes.  He was so excited Christmas morning, we made sure to capture it all on video so we can watch it for years to come.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family and friends too!

So here are a few pictures from our holiday.  By next year I hope to figure out how to use my camera correctly – I obviously am doing something wrong…

Warming hands by the fire...

Our 2010 picture... can you tell I'm on some cold meds? Or was it the egg nog?

Alex's first time on skates!! Nervous, but a natural, especially with his new hockey stick.
