Just a quick post to let everybody know that all is well here in Michigan! We're finally getting a little bit of snow, and the boys are happy! They were able to build snow forts in the back yard this morning, and Tom actually had to plow the driveway!
We've enjoyed several days of sleeping in, watching movies and playing games . . . just relaxing in general! The boys have also been watching Ebay for the Ipod touches that they want to buy. Bryce won one last night, and Nicolas is still watching several.
Last night we enjoyed a pre-New Years Eve dinner at a nice restaurant with Tom's parents. We had a gift certificate that was going to expire today, so we beat the crowds and had our dinner on the 30th. Nicolas and I shared prime rib, and Tom had a prime rib sandwich -- all were yummy! Expensive, but good, and a nice atmosphere.
This afternoon, the boys are running their radio control cars at a local hobby shop that has an indoor RC track. They have racing on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons, but the boys have to work on their control some more before they enter any races. When they get home we'll get cleaned up for Mass, and then head over to Tom's brother's house for another Christmas/New Year celebration. This brother and sister-in-law were in Chicago for Christmas, so we're having our celebration with them tonight. Tomorrow we have several families coming over for a party here, and then on Sunday my family will be coming up to celebrate my Mom's birthday.
It'll be a busy end to this relaxing holiday break!!
