After church, we headed out on Daniel's big adventure to see Christmas lights. Our "elf" had left a scavenger hunt for the boys and we all had a blast finding everything on the list. We spent over two hours in the car together driving around and looking at people's houses. Some of my favorite memories will be Zak dancing like crazy to Trans Siberian Orchestra, Daniel excitedly pointing out everything he could see and AJ being so excited to find our list item "Winnie the Pooh." We also went to two different houses with lights set to music. It was such an amazing family night!!
We headed over to Carl & Sarah's in the afternoon and the cousins all ran off to play together while the adults got some time to catch up. We enjoyed an awesome feast of the seven fishes cooked by Carl, while the kids enjoyed pasta and cookies. The kids all got their gifts and loved them. Vincent was excited to sit in his new chair from us and Isabelle loved her new Barbie & Calico Critters. AJ loved his Minecraft movie maker & made about 5 movies while we were there. Daniel and Zak enjoyed making creations with their new Bunchems set. Fun night for everyone!!

Monday (12/26) started late after we all slept in, yay!! We spent the day relaxing and chilling out as a family which was great. We played our new games (including Minecraft the card game, Castle Panic, King of Tokyo & Mario chess), played with our new toys and played some video games. I also took advantage of Adrian being home to get a few things crossed off my to do list. We finished up with home made pizza for dinner. It was a nice relaxing day and I'm hoping the next week of break will be just as relaxing!
Wednesday (12/28) started as yesterday ended, with a sick Daniel. He has a fever and is not feeling well. He woke me up around 6am, was up for like an hour then went back to sleep for like 2 hours. Too bad the other two woke up so I had to stay up. Yawn. We had a relaxing day of TV, video games and board games so that Daniel could rest and recuperate. He seems much better as the day is going on.
