Friday evening we went to dinner at Aunt Connie and Uncle Mark's. We had a great time. The kids ate tons and were really good the whole evening. Unfortunately I forgot the camera, but we had a great time. It also kept Will busy so the anticipation didn't make him crazy (the quads don't "get it" quite enough for anticipation.) When we got home and put the kids to bed, Santa still had a lot to do! We were up much too late, but managed to get some sleep before Will woke up.
Christmas morning, Will burst into our room begging to go downstairs. I reminded him that we needed to wake the babies first. The poor quads had no idea what was going on when Will ran into their room jumping up and down and yelling. We got everyone out of bed. Rod went down first to check and yelled up the stairs that Santa really did come!!

The next day we went to my inlaws to celebrate Christmas with my husband's family. The last two nights in a row, the kids had been up late and this was going to be the second day in a row of no naps for the quads. I was very worried. I was certain that there would be melt-downs. I am so happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone behaved and had fun. I somehow forgot to take my camera out much, so I only have one picture of the entire day, but it was such a great ending to a wonderful weekend!
I am so grateful that everyone was healthy enough to enjoy such a great Christmas weekend. Most of all, I am thankful that we have such wonderful family with whom to share the holidays. We are so blessed in so many ways!!
