Christmas 2008

What can I say, it's been forever since we last posted something but for our comeback we brought another movie/slideshow.  This year for Christmas things have been a little different for both Shelby and I because of the wedding and all, but we were able to celebrate a small but sweet night together here in College Station.  

In the pictures we tried to make it look like we had a ton of gifts but there were actually only 4 in  total.  (Casey and Parker didn't actually get wrapped presents, but let's just say they each have a brand new tennis ball to play with)  Shelby got me some new church socks (gold toe - the nice ones), an awesome tie, and a fossil watch which is amazingly spectacular.  She received new Victoria Secret satin pajamas and a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses for the cruise.  We both loved each other's gifts.  

Now that it's over I think that we can both look back and realize how blessed each one of us is. We both have great families and friends that are always willing to help us out and do just about anything for us.   I'll have to say that the best part of Christmas is definitely the part where you look and search for that perfect present to give to a loved one.  Nothing feels better than seeing the expression someone has after they've received something special.  I hope we can all remember the ultimate gift that was given to us during this season!
