Christmas was wonderful this year.

It was so nice to be able to see all the family, and not have to worry about driving back to PA in the snow, cramming all the gifts in the car, etc. Sara got a boatload of toys, which she has been happily playing with since yesterday morning. Santa brought our family a Wii, which Matt set up. It has a ton of multi-player games, so we spent a good deal of yesterday playing Wii Sports Resort...bowling, playing frisbee, swordfighting, golf...it was a lot of fun lol. Matt seemed happy with his presents, though I know he's really excited about the new computer he's building. He bought all the parts the day before yesterday, so he'll soon have a brand new toy to play with. Mom and Bob got me a brand new Kitchenaid Stand mixer..it is NICE! I can't wait to start cooking with it!

On the downside, my brother Joe (who was SUPPOSED to be on leave till January 6th) has been called back early. He's leaving to go back to his base today, and they're shipping out to Afganistan very, very soon. I'm glad he got SOME time at home, I know a lot of soldiers this year didn't even get that. We'll be heading over to see him off sometime today.
