Christmas Part 3 and Drew's Birthday Part 1

Do you like my "parts" posts?  :-)

My brother arrived from Peoria on New Year's Eve.  He was tired by the time he got here so he stayed home and Andy and I headed out for New Year's at about 11pm.  We were home by 2am so it was a short, but late night!

We celebrated Christmas with my family on New Year's Day.  The kids were really excited to open presents.  It had been killing them to look at them under the tree for so long!

Andy and I had to go back to work on Thursday.  :-(  It was really hard to get up and go back this year!  I had really enjoyed my two weeks off!  Drew, Kayley and Ryan entertained Matt, Grandma and Grandpa while we were at work.

We celebrated Drew's 7th birthday on Saturday.  He requested his favorite cake - funfetti.  We mixed it up this year and went with blue frosting.

Drew got a a lot of nice gifts from Grandma, Grandpa and Matt.  In addition to the above, he got two more books (Big Book of How and First Big Book of Space).  He now has enough books to keep him busy for awhile!

Today we have been indoors most of the day.  It started snowing last night and has been snowing all day.  The low tonight is -18 and the high tomorrow is -8.  I hope our furnace holds up!
