When Joe finally had to get back to his desk to get some work done we tagged along - Eli had just woken up and needed some time to stretch before we got back in the car for the 30 minute drive home. In the office Patrick drew on Joe's giant white board - he'd never played with dry-erase markers before and he was LOVING it! Even after an hour of art he was mad that we were leaving. Eli was ready for a nap, though, so we loaded back up into the car and BOTH boys fell asleep on the ride home - yesssss! Eli stayed crashed out in his car seat and Patrick slept for an hour in the car, then and hour in his own bed, then half an hour in my lap, and finally woke up because daddy was home! So I dreaded Joe's day at work for nothing - we got to see him, eat lunch with him (which we never get to do), watch giant machines with him, and before we knew it he was home again!
The evening flew by, as evenings always do, and Joe and I picked up "Surrogates" to watch that night. We really enjoyed the movie, though it's parallels to "I, Robot" were a bit of a let-down. Still, you know that any day that begins and ends with machines is going to be above-average :)

Kalena was definitely into it! So was her dad. Christmas is unbelievably even better as a parent!
Eli was awake later in the day to watch the kids play with their new things
like this tunnel/tent combo. They LOVED it!
All in all, from our house to the western slope, we had a WONDERFUL Christmas with our families!
Now I'm going to need some awesome ideas for Christmas traditions for toddlers so I can look forward to our own Christmas (close to) as much as I always look forward to going home. Merry Christmas to all, and to all 2-month olds a happy new year!
