Christmas 2012

We Nortons are finally returning to the land of the living.  We were all sick over Christmas – except for Cale.  As a family we had everything from pneumonia to RSV to sinus infections to a stomach virus.  It was a rough holiday season; but thankfully everyone is now better.  We didn’t feel like partying too much and didn’t take a ton of pictures; but we have a few.

The weekend before Christmas, Steve, Claire and I went to Rhema to walk through the Christmas lights.

Santa visited the Norton babies!  Claire got a dollhouse for her Barbies, a princess Barbie and monkey ballerina footed jammies.  Cale got the Wheelies airport and monkey footed jammies.  And Santa brought MegaBlocks for the kids to share.  Thank you, Santa!023

Even though we didn’t feel 100%, we had a wonderful Christmas and really enjoyed our time together.
