Here I am!! Did you miss me?? I missed all of you. I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. we did. but leading up to it was crazy. last weekend we had an ice storm. Sunday morning a huge branch broke off our tree and took out our power, internet, phone and cable! We were with out power from 5:00 am sunday morning til about 10:00 pm monday night. what an ordeal. That left me two days behind in the christmas department! I ended up spending the night at Tony and Nessas on Sunday night as it was just too cold in the house. but I get to spend time with this little sweetie pie..
I ended up not going to work on monday, (I already had taken tues and thurs off). Thank god I had tuesday off.. all day christmas eve, I busted my butt to get ready for our christmas eve party. Cleaning, cooking.. and other last minute things..
but I pulled it off. and managed to have everything done and ready for our guests by the time they arrived! And as usual, we had a good time, eating, playing games, exchanging gifts and laughing!
After everyone left, I stayed up til 2:00 am filling stockings and putting the gifts out. tony is pretty much the grinch and he fell asleep! lol!
I was back up at 7:00 making breakfast casserole and cinnamon rolls and waiting for all the kids to arrive Everyone showed up around 10:30 and the then the craziness began! We had a good time. Christmas morning is a pretty big deal here.. (and pretty much everywhere else too.. lol!)
Those baby pies, make every thing brighter and more fun! and louder.. and messier!
Marla princess pie
torry wont hold still pie
and totally precious violet pie!
we had a great day and everyone got lots of great presents. our living room was pretty much wall to wall gifts everywhere.
I had thursday off too and Jennifer brought Ella and Carson over to get their gifts as they were with their mom on christmas day. I gave Carson a bag of christmas dough! 50 one dollar bills all rolled up and packaged! thank you pinterest!
Ellas is a girl after my own heart so her and I played dolly adventures and had fun taking pics of our dolls doing silly things around the house.
here is a few of our adventure pics!
I finally finished my elves this morning for the elf challange. so sorry for those of you that have been waiting. I will post all of the pics tomorrow.
Just got our cable, internet and phone back with in the last hour! I was having serious withdrawal symptons! Ive missed all my bloggy places! so I will be catching up now!
Im on call this week.. keep your fingers crossed that its QUIET!! I just want to stay home and relax!
I hope everyone got nice things for christmas. I was very seriously spoiled by my kids. they did way too much for me. In fact I got a nook.. and I'm dying to play with it now that I have the internet again...
so off I go! toodles friends!
