Happy Birthday Jesus????

I know this is April but I am determined to get caught up on recording our memories so... here is what I have to say about December. We held our annual Christmas Caroling party which is one of my favorite traditions we have started. Several of our friends except (Neil and Jayne because they were soooooo busy...just kidding hehe) joined us in going around to friends and elders in our neighborhood with the wonderful and loved Christmas songs. This year was particularly special because Collin knew a lot of the songs and sang his little heart out with a great big smile.

I must note Christmas as well. The prized toys were Transformers for Collin, Lightning McQueen for Clay and a "cooler" cell phone for Alexis. Since I am commenting on Christmas 4 months later I can say that the Transformers are still a hit for Collin but Lightning McQueen wins the cherished Christmas present prize. Clay slept with it, put it in his pocket any time we left the house, pretended constantly with it and he shared his secrets with it (I overheard him whispering to Lightning McQueen "I just went peed in my underwear")... and now he is gone. Because of the pocket travels he was left at the Library never to be seen again. Alexis already wants a cooler cell phone... a "slider" she say's.

just to be clear, i am still winning the adaptability contest with neil. and it wasn't because I was busy (or was it?) but because I don't like to go around projecting my oh so lovely voice to stangers (which will always be the real reason even if i say i'm busy) :o)
