The evening of January 1, 2009, we had some friends over for our final Christmas gift exchange and a game night.
We got gotten the Merrill's a few gifts, including a finger painting that Peter had made (Sarah had requested it for her office!).
The Merrill's bought the kids a couple gifts, including a portable art table, bath time paints, and a baseball game that Peter loves:
We also gave Emma (the Merrill's dog) a new candy cane bone for her Christmas gift. It was a good thing Emma had a new bone because Peter wanted her old bone for himself.
After the kids went to bed we played cards, ate pizza and relaxed with the Merrills, Iain, and Mike Pritchard.
