Well we were officially in the mist of the 2008 Holiday Rush when Emily and John decided to come early! So I hurried and finished hanging all the stockings (18 total!) and finished decorating the tree and doing some last minute things to help Santa. Then John and Emily came about 2:30 a.m. in the morning on the 20th. They came through a snow storm to get here and we were just glad to see them! Not to mention they made it ok. I can't wait for Christmas Morning so I can have my entire family home for the holidays! Emily and John are going to be able to stay with us until the 5th of January.
