Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a great first Christmas with the girls at home.
Two weeks before Christmas Alex got the stomach flu, which quickly passed on to me and the girls, then Chris, then my parents, and eventually my sister and her family and Chris' sister and her husband. The girls really took it hard and it took over a week for them to fully recover, but they were well at Christmas.
Here are some pics from Christmas with my parents (my sister and her family did not come as they were trying to avoid the sickness... although they did eventually get it anyway.)

Alex got a wii, which was his big gift this year. He actually wasn't really that excited as he thought he wanted toys. But he really doesn't play with toys anymore, and we knew he would like it. And he does now!!! He wants to play all the time (and so do we).

The girls didn't last too long... Anna and Elisabeth fell asleep while opening gifts.


Chris' family came out for Christmas and that was a lot of fun. It is always nice, of course, to have more helping hands around the house...

Here are some pics from Christmas morning

and we also got to go hiking, play tennis, see a movie, visit the great-grandparents, and just enjoy being together.

Chris' brother Jeremy does photography on the side and he took some pics of the kids playing etc... I thought they turned out great. Here are some of my favorites!

I know you probably want to know which baby is whom (and I have figured it out, Jeremy), but I don't have time right now to label them so I will try to later. They sure are cute, though, aren't they???!!!!
