My brother-in-law, Phillip, came and visited us for the Christmas break. He is stationed in North Pole Alaska but he will be doing some training over in San Antonio until March. Since he was unable to go home he came and spent a couple of days with us. He drove his Motorcycle over and got stuck in a lot of rain. A three hour trip turned into a seven hour one. I felt so bad for him because he was wet and covered with dirt from head to toe when he fianlly made it to Crosby. Keegan and Mya were super excited about the motorcycle though. They dressed up in all of his motorcycle gear and Phillip let them go out and sit on it and both of them were laughing histerically. The thing that he will be most remembered for in our house is his homemade chicken noodle soup. It was fantastic and I didn't even have to do anything because he just took over the kitchen.
The other visitor of course was Santa Clause himself. The kids spent the 24th baking christmas cookies for him and then they frosted them all by themselves. (I am still sweeping up sprinkles). The Missionaries came over that evening and we had a big dinner (ham, potatoes, rolls, salad and green beans). We watched Mr. Krooger's Christmas and had hot chocolate and cookies. Mya told me before she went to bed that it was going to be really hard to go to sleep because she was so excited. We got up at 7:00 and they were able to open up gifts. Keegan's favorite was the remote control car and Mya's was the barbie doll that she had been asking since the beginning of December both of them sent by Grandma.
