Happy New Year

2010 already ... where did the time go?!?! We all had a great Christmas over here, busy but good. We had Christmas on the Tolsma side a week early and the kids all loved it. It was quite crazy with 11 kids opening up presents plus all the adults but it was great to see how happy they all were when they opened their presents. We then had a quiet Christmas morning at our house with just us and the girls. Jaclyn loved being able to open her and Makayla's presents (might be the only time she'll be able to do that). We got Jaclyn her own desk and easel for her room and she loves it. She'll sit in there forever and draw and colour!!! Then for lunch and the afternoon on Christmas we spent it with Jim's Mom's side of the family and then headed out to Chilliwack to spend the rest of the weekend. We woke up Boxing Day and just pretended it was Christmas again and did gifts and a turkey dinner etc. with Mom, Dad, Kevin and Drew. It was a great time and the girls loved spending time and visiting with Nana and Papa "with Rocky" (as Jaclyn refers to them) and their Uncle Kevin and Uncle Drew who they don't get to see to much of. All in all we had a great Christmas this year and look forward to next year already.

Jaclyn and Makayla are growing like weeds. Makayla is going to be 5 months already next week .. where the time goes I have no idea ... and Jaclyn is a very interesting 3 year old. The things she does and comes up with just crack me up .. I never know what to expect from her. She is still a big help with Makayla and loves having a little sister. She can't wait for Makayla to get a little bit bigger so she can actually play with her.

Who knows what 2010 is going to bring us this year .. we are hoping for Jaclyn to finally have her surgery this year and other than that we'll just see what it's going to bring our way!!
