Merry, merry Christmas!

Picking up our new van!
We've been busy in the Roberts' household! Mostly spending time at home, eating, celebrating the holidays and just having fun.  I've had off for a week, which has been so awesome. I LOVE having off of work. I'm happy to report that we got a minivan! We picked it up Friday, the day before Christmas eve. We decided to get the Toyota Sienna XLE. We initially wanted the dark grey, but we would have had to wait another month, so we decided that black would be just as nice. It has a dvd player, automatic side doors and back door. It's really nice.  We already took a trip down to Ikea with 5 adults and 2 kids. It was perfect!

Christmas was so fun this year because Ellie is now at that age where she likes opening presents and is excited about  everything. She got so many awesome gifts this year. Nick and I got her a doll house which she ooohed and awwed about. She loves it. Santa brought her a "Baby Alive" doll. I wasn't sure if I wanted to get her this, since dolls are kind of creepy, but this one isn't too bad. You can brush her teeth and change her diaper!

Jack fell asleep during breakfast.

Later Christmas day we headed over to the Robert's house where there were so many more presents to open. It was a long day, but so much fun!
I love Jack's face here. Doesn't he look a lot like his Grandpa too?

These dogs are crazy.

Ellie loves her Grandma!

Merry Christmas!!
