Josh got lots of cars and trucks but absolutely loved the package of 150 plastic balls!
The big thing this year was their new kitchen. Brad and I had put it together on Christmas Eve and set it up in the play room. After opening all the gifts, we took the kids downstairs Emma was a bit confused as to why the play room door was shut so we told her to open it up. When she did, the reaction went something like this "Look, we got a kitchen" without an ounce of excitement but in her defense, she was sick and while her voice lacked excitement, her actions said otherwise.
We rounded out the rest of our day with an afternoon visit with RiRi and Mr. Win and then drove around and looked at some lights in the neighborhood that night. Other than a slightly sick Emma, it was a great Christmas.
The plan was then to celebrate Christmas with Brad's family over New Year's weekend but you may be able to guess what happened there given the fact that Emma was sick on Christmas and did not get it from Josh. Therefore, it was almost inevitable that Josh would be next in line and unfortunately, he didn't disappoint. He spent the next week not feeling quite right during which time Brad had some weird allergic reaction and about the time those two were up and running, I got sick so no Missouri Christmas. Instead, Brad's parents brought down gifts a couple of weeks later so Christmas went on extra long for Emma and Josh.
