Season of Many Christmas Celebrations

For those of you that don't know much about our family; we have SIX (yes you read that right, SIX!) Christmas Celebrations! This can make for two very tired parents and one exceptionally cranky and tired little boy!! I think that last year it took us all two or three days to recover and this year has been no exception!! We have been talking about implementing a more "family friendly schedule" and have yet to figure out how to do this without upsetting family! I think that we have come to the conclusion that it might not be the popular thing to do but will be what we have to do for the sanity of Steve, Angela, Teeghun and "Baby T". We will keep you posted on our plans but know that something will have to change for 2008 as we will have two little ones!!

We started our Christmas Celebration Tour with mom's on Dec. 16th; then Kreiger's on December 22nd; Bills Christmas on December 23rd, followed by Dad's Christmas on December 24th for brunch and Miller Christmas for dinner. We celebrated Christmas with the three of us on Christmas morning. The final Christmas of the year was the Gordon Christmas on Christmas afternoon. We have established the tradition of attending the Christmas Eve service at The Chapel so we have to miss the "official" Miller Christmas but were able to spend several hours with most of the family earlier in the day. Steve's nephew (Andy) and his wife (Angie) surprised us with a visit from Santa! The kids were all going crazy and couldn't believe that Santa had come to Grandma's house!! Teeghun wasn't so sure and it took about 20 minutes for him to warm-up to Santa but we finally did get some pictures of him close to Santa (a victory in my book)!!

Here is a picture of all of us at Sycamore; we were supposed to have brunch with Santa on December 16th, but that is the Sunday that we got all the snow and Allen County issued a snow emergency so we had to reschedule. Teeghun still wasn't too sure about Santa (notice the grip on Steve's sweater) but he did let us all gather to take a picture...
