On Saturday we got to watch Tim and Tom play in their respective basketball games. This meant a lot to me because we don't normally get to see many sporting events since they usually play on week nights. Afterwards, we went to Hunan's (just like it was Christmas Eve) and feasted on yummy Chinese food. On Sunday we got up and went to Mass at 11am and then had Santa's brunch at Lochland Country Club. Again- another wonderful treat. The food was so great and there was quite the spread. Plus Jack got to meet Santa for the first time. He did fairly well, but didn't quite know what to do. So, we didn't get a smile out of him. After lunch we headed home and after a nap, we opened presents. This is our 2nd year to draw names for Secret Santa. I think after two years of trying Secret Santa out (instead of everyone purchasing each other gifts--that would be 100 gifts, if you don't count Jack) we've decided it's really fun and a good way to keep people on their toes. Jack really enjoyed playing with his aunts and uncles, and he couldn't stop talking about "Gramma and Ye-Ye's" house when we got back to KC.
We're thankful for good weather to travel in and another wonderful weekend spent with our family.

Merry Christmas to all and may God continue to bless each of you in 2011!
Until next time...
