Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!

We had a very Merry Christmas this year!  I'm always so shocked by how fast it goes by.  The kids got some wonderful gifts from Santa and family and friends and they LOVE everything!

We celebrated Christmas Eve with my family at our house and it was great!  Mimi and Pop surprised Jack and Taylor with a trampoline.  Well actually, Jack was surprised since he found it hidden behind the garage that afternoon, while Taylor was taking a nap.  I'm actually surprised he didn't find it sooner!  They both love it and have jumped on it everyday, rain or shine! Mimi and Pop and my brother spoiled them with some other great gifts!

Christmas morning the kids woke up to lots of gifts under the tree from Santa.  They must have both been on the nice list since they got everything they asked for.

Jack was so happy to get his blue Nintendo 3DS. It was all he talked about since Thanksgiving.  He also got matching headphones, games, remote control toys and a hula hoop.  I have never seen someone hula hoop as good as Jack.  He calls himself the "Hula Hooping Machine" and that's exactly what he is.  I thought back to last year and most of Jack's gifts were superhero figures, cars and trucks and this year mostly everything he asked for was electronic and high tech.  My little boy is growing up!

Taylor got a hot pink kitchen, pots, pans and dishes, an Elsa doll, a baby carrier, Minnie Mouse heels and some other girly things.  She loves her kitchen and plays with it everyday and loves banging the pots and pans together, while wearing her heels!

We had such an exciting Christmas that we decided to take it easy for New Years.  We stayed home and rang in the New Year as a family.  Our neighbor across the street had a small party so we went over there for a few hours.  Jack's best friend (and neighbor), Tyler, was there so they had fun playing and watching fireworks.  Taylor was in bed asleep by 9:30 pm and Jack made it until 11:45 pm.  He usually stays up until midnight, but Tyler came over and they laid down to watch a movie and they both passed out.  

2014 was a great year and we look forward to what 2015 has in store for The Furmans!!
