for Christmas we kept things simple. Andy's family showers us with gifts and we decided that that was more than enough when filled out with a few more.I would list them all because I was soooo exited. but... that would be boring, so here are some highlights.
Leah is covered in chocolate because she insisted on eating all of the candy in her stocking before she would open her presents.
I made dress up dresses for Esther, and then decided Leah needed one too, so I made another. They were pretty easy.
and the girls loved them.
we got a webcam and a microphone from Kurt (Andy's dad) and spent a few hours on skype(our ID is: meikjn.fielding). if you have not tried it out it is awesome I tried it for the first time and I give it 10 out of 10. the best part is, it is free!!! all you really need is a microphone and a free download. and the Internet. The camera is a neat added bonus. My parents recently got into it to be able to see everyone since they are all the way in Ukraine right now. Andy liked the feature of distorting his face with the webcam. he made the best of it.
and finally. A little Christmas humor. Andy's sister sent us a really cool board game that is called ticket to ride where you try to visit cities all over North America. the problem is, that the people who made it were not too savvy on American cites. and here is the result:
(for those of you who do not get the joke, the city marked Duluth is actually St. Paul. trust me I know I live there.)
I really don't know If Andy's sister realized the mistake, but it made me laugh.
