A Very Merry

We had a great Christmas day, complete with a visit from Santa! It only took us about 2 hours to open all of our gifts. Once Samantha opened up her new cleaning trolley, she was not interested in opening any more gifts! We spent most of our time watching Avery and Samantha play together, which really means that they were running around chasing each other! In the evening we enjoyed dinner with the extended Spiegel Family, and no Valentine holiday would be complete without a karaoke competition (to be won by the Valentine's of course!)
