For all the family here is a little update on how the holidays have been at the Welch household.
First, for all of those who sent money or gift cards to Cooper for his birthday, he used his money to buy an iPod. It is something that he should use for a long time and it hooks up to the iDog that he had asked for and Santa brought. So thank you to everyone.
Thank you grandparents for all agreeing to kick in for Val's new video camera. Even though she asked for it she was surprised on when she opened her present. I have tried to stay out of the way and only offer assistance if asked. I am as excited as you to see what videos come out of it, but she was very excited.
We had a great Christmas here. My mom and dad came up for the week. Dad helped with several projects around the house (mainly involving doors.) We opened family gifts on Christmas eve. Then the big man came that night and left a little more for Christmas day, including a new sled, which has been used several times already.
On Thursday night Val and I went out for our anniversary to the Wabasha Street Caves Swing night. We had a lot of fun and then stayed at the Saint Paul Hotel.
Right now Cooper is trying to stay up with Val to ring in the new year. Lincoln has been sick and Saturday night I was up most of the night with him, so I don't think I will see the new year pass.
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and have a wonderful 2008.
