Day 1 of our crazy busy week

The first day of our busy, busy week was Christmas eve. Dan had to work so the girls and I got up early and made the guys a big plate of cookies, grabbed their presents and headed to station 2 for a visit. Of course as we pulled in they were heading to Loma Linda hospital so the girls and I hung out and waited......and waited..............and waited...............until finally.................. yay, they made it back! We always stick the girls on the engine every Christmas so we can see how they have grown.
This isn't the best picture but we can at least say we were there. :)
The girls gave all the guys thier gifts and cookies and we spent a fun afternoon with Dan before heading home to get ready for our family and friends to come on Christmas day.
This is probably the calmest moment we had all week. We were soooo busy but it was all fun stuff. In between all the family, friends and activities I was trying my darndest to get over a really bad chest cold, that was accompanied by the worst larangitis, Ryanne caught it and Morgan is still trying to fight it off. Ugh! That's ok though we made it, enjoyed it and now we are enjoying a few days of rest with nothing to do but lay around in our new Pj's and ring in the new year.

I love that idea of taking a pic of the kids every Christmas in front of the engine. That is a great idea.
