Anyway, the night before Shane and I headed to Washington, I decided it was a good time to pack. I also realized that I forgot to do any laundry. Of course I waited until 12am to start. So, I did laundry, straightend up the house, and packed. When I was finally finished I thought I would be able to sleep for a couple hours before I had to get up to catch our flight... I was wrong. It was 3:45am and I need to leave at 4:00am. Not cool! But I guess I did it to myself.
Shane and I had a little set back and we got to the airport later than we had hoped. I was thinking because our flight was so early that day, we wouldn't have to wait long in the check-in/security lines. Boy was I wrong. I have never seen the lines that long before. We were getting more and more nervous as each minute passed. Finally we got to the security gate. Both Shane and I ripped off our belts, shoes, etc. and got through the gate as fast as possible. When our things came down the belt we just grabbed them and ran. I had a hard time trying to keep my pants up :) Of course our gate was at the very end of the terminal. We made it just as they were about to close the gate. Talk about a rush! At least we got to Washington ok.
It was nice seeing everyone and before we knew it, it was Christmas Eve. Koby was pretty excited for Christmas. I don't know if he had trouble falling asleep because of the excitement, but when Megan and I finally came up to our room to go to bed, we found Koby sleeping like this:
Koby was the first to wake up. We let him go into everyone else's rooms and wake them up too. Following the DeFreese family tradition, we all lined up on the stairs to take a picture before going out to see the Christmas tree.

After opening some presents, we headed over to Micah and Eve's church for baby Ivy's blessing.
After the blessing we headed back to Randy and Laura's for some more fun. The McCall's and the DeFreese's came over too.
