This is Christmas day at Dave and Anna's. All the kids under the tree. Heidi agreed to do it one more time :)
(*big sigh*) its done, its over and we are home again. Christmas is fun and I love it, I love seeing everyone and getting to give gifts, and eating and eating and eating. But its a lot of stress too. But its done for 2007 and now its 2008.
We had a great x-mas with little to no fighting, which is big for me. I always end up crying at x-mas because of the stress and family and excitement.
We added a new addition to the family, on boxing day. She is a "Megal" (beagal and min pin.) really she is just a mutt. A cute mutt but a mutt. We have been trying to name here from day one. When we first brought her home we told the kids a few names we were thinking about, one being Sani ( saniya or sain means BEYOND COMPARISON, or to give rather then receive in Hinduism), which the kids took too right away, but I wanted Noel, so for 5 days I called her Noel and the kids Sani, I figured the kids would forget and start using Noel too. These are the kids that can not remember the cats names, the cats we have had longer then them. Well I finally gave in yesterday, the dogs name is Sani (sound like Soun-ie)
