So although Christmas was not as relaxed as we would have liked, we had a really good Christmas this (last) year. Ethan got everything he (I) wished for (with lots of help from family), and although you can't tell from the pictures, he was very excited about his presents. He even loved his clothes which he said were "cute" as soon as he saw them. Ethan still doesn't really get Christmas, so he wasn't really all that excited until he started opening his gifts. He actually woke up pretty distraught that morning because he was sick, but as soon as he understood what was happening he cheered up. Spencer, of course, had no idea what was going on. In fact, he slept in while the rest of us opened our gifts and enjoyed helping Daddy rip his own open later. It was great to be able to spend the holiday with family. Grandma and Grandpa Dibb came for a short visit, but had to leave on Christmas Day with a load of furniture and such. That's what made the day so busy, but we're so glad they came! We also got to spend part of the day with John, Jenn, Jacob, Jason, Nathan, and Christine. It's always fun to see them, too. Oh yeah, and Grandma and Grandpa made us yummy bran muffins for brunch. We hope everyone else had a great Christmas, and has a great 2008!

He looks like he hates it, but I think he actually was very relaxed and liked it.

Those are great pictures. Seeing Ethan on Christmas day with Grandma and Grandpa made me tear up. I wish my kids could have been there too.
I have a stocking just like Ethan's! Hmm, small world. ;)
