Holidays Part Two
We are back.  We came home from Virginia yesterday.  We had a great time and Keegan did fairly well but you could tell his schedule was all messed up.  He loved the hotel.  It has an indoor pond with two Royal swans in it.  He said good morning to George and Martha and good night each time we passed by. And because it was a suite we could close the door between our rooms which meant he slept and I slept.  Both good things.  He had tons of fun chasing his cousins around their house.  On Monday we took the kids to the Air & Space Museum annex.  We saw an IMAX movie called Santa vs. the Snowman that was really cute.  After lunch they went on a flight simulator.  Yet another thing you can't do pregnant. :)  But they seemed to enjoy themselves.  After church that evening we had a table full of delicious nibbles.  And of course because I have never liked it before, the sushi smelled awesome but I can't have raw fish.  Ah pregnancy, never a dull moment.  Christmas Day we went over to my brother Scott's house because I hadn't seen it and then when my brother Bret and his family were back at their house we headed over there.  We opened presents, played with the kids new games and had a delicious dinner.
Yesterday morning we flew back and headed home.  We got our stuff in the door and Jeff went to pick up Isabelle.  Keegan took a three hour nap.  We had our Christmas last night and my parents came up.  My grandparents were supposed to come too but my grandfather was feeling very tired.  So the kids unwrapped endless presents from family all over, Santa and us.  So far Keegan's favorites have been the electric keyboard and the baby doll.  Today we will setup his fish tank and then tomorrow go and pick out the fish.
