Merry Christmas!


I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL holiday!  We at the Moll house, has a wonderful Christmas!  We spent the early part of Christmas Eve at Carl’s dad’s house with his family.  We had a bit to eat, opened gifts and then headed off to The Acosta’s for another quick visit.  We hung out with them for a while and then headed to our last stop…. dinner with friends at the Ringheimer’s house.  What a fun night.  Lots of yummy, yummy food.  The kids had a great time (as did we adults!).  When we arrived home we let the kids open one gift (pajamas) and then I relented and let them open one more (slippers!).  We sent the kids off to bed and Carl and I filled the stockings and finished up some loose ends.  We finally made it to bed around 1:00 am.  Thankfully, our kids NEVER wake us up early (what is up with that?)  Tyson got up around 9:30 and we finally had to wake Madi up at 10:00!!!!!  Crazy kids!  The kids recieved a bunch of clothes, dvd’s and video games.  The dog and cat each got new beds and some yummy (for them) treats!  We had breakfast at our house and then headed down to my parent’s house for more presents and dinner.  Grandma and Grandpa outdid themselves this year, as did my brothers with their gifts.  Tyson’s 16th birthday is on New Year’s Eve, so his Christmas present from my parents was a joint Christmas/Birthday gift.  Are you ready for this….. they gave Tyson a NEW CAR!!!  He goes to school about 20 miles from our house and having a car can be such a blessing (mostly for us!)  Tyson is an honor student and maintains a high GPA, while still playing three different sports (year round).  My parents wanted to reward him.  My brothers were also involved in giving Tyson the car and then contributed a sub woofer and amp for his stereo.  Tyson was ABSOLUTELY STUNNED and in SHOCK!  He never in a million years thought he would get such a gift. He has been soooooo thankful to everyone.  What a great kid!  Madi was also spoiled by grandma and grandpa as well as her uncles.  She got a flip phone/camera phone, which she totally wanted as well an an iPod Video!  She was beyone thrilled!  She also got some cute (?) skater shoes and more clothes.  Tyson spent the remainder of the day learning how to drive a stick shift!  Too funny!  He got it though, and is doing great!  He’s getting in lots of driving time with us, to  prepare for his test next week.  Oh, the specs on the car….. 2001 Volkswagon Passat.  It is silver and only has 50k miles.  It is in awesome condition!  I think I want to drive it!

    Awesome!! Congrats to Tyson. I love the car and he looks so great in it. You know Ali, I hadn’t ever realized that Tyson shared the same birthday with my mom, Dec. 31. Very cool!! Maybe Angie and I need to go to Utah so we could cruise Tyson’s car around. Do ya think we’d look like some hot mommas? LOL

    That is a cool (I had typed cute to begin with, but thought that wouldn’t sit so well with Tyson) car and a very nice gift. I know you said your parents were going to do that, but at the time you didn’t know what kind of car. Sounds like you had a great Christmas. I just got home from watching the Utah game at Fiddler’s Elbow with some friends from work. Awesome game. Brian was actually there — he conveniently had business in San Jose this week. Go UTES!
