Burgess Family of three...for now

A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

Christmas eve this year was at our house. We changed it this year by having my mom make tamales ahead of time and just bringing them over already made! I will have to admit I didn't think I was going to miss all the work but I really did.
We have the fam over for a little "talent show" program and tamales and gift opening. It was fun to get the whole family together, Candi had to do her visit via telephone from Germany, so the only person we were missing was Emilee.

My parents performed their rendition of "Baby It's Cold Outside", and it was the highlight of the night! They were so cute! I wish I would have video taped it! Pictures don't do it justice. My dad is convinced that next year he is going to do better so we'll see!

Jacob and Tyler had a duet to "Santa Clause is coming to town". LOVED IT!!

Jonathan and Megan got their clear player!!

The Malkou's got a Fire Safe!

We made out like bandits this year! We were so glad that Megan and Jonathan got us (well mostly Megan). She made us this awesome quilt which is now our favorite blanket!! They also got us matching NAU shirts, a "The Office" calendar that is freakin hilarious, a Pyrex dish (that has a funny story), and a nice Schnauzer button up sweater vest. YES!!!!! Thanks guys!!

Scooter got a new pato!!

Ernest got clothes!

Mom got smelly stuff and pots & pans!

Dad got a new running outfit (as usual), and smelly stuff!

Around 1pm we finally hit the sack. Then Clint woke me up at 5am because Scooter had knocked over the trash and so Clint was so mad he couldn't go back to sleep. I was convinced that Clint was crazy because he had to be the only person waking up the fam when there were no more gifts to open!! I got up and we watched all of 10 minutes of a movie and then we were out again!

We woke up the next morning around 10 and moseyed over to Clint's mom's house and hung out there. We got our first pack of diapers!!!!

Later we went to Clint's dad's house and hung out and stuffed our faces some more!
By the end of the day we were barely awake! Noah sums it up pretty nicely...
