Enough already! I give in to you nagging bloggers who keep bugging me about updating! Man, are you a pesky bunch. Some random pics from our joyous holiday. Mom, Jerry, and Alyssa came to visit (I have no pictures of mom or Jerry--oops). I have a good excuse--I was quite flat-on-my-back-under-the-weather over Christmas Eve/Christmas day, and so on, so I wasn't much in a picture-taking mood. Just took some of the kids so I could remember what Christmas day looked like after I came out of my fever-induced fog!!!
Anyway, here's what I remember about those couple of days: Nanna (mom) and uncle Jerry and Auntie Lyssa arrived (extremely late in the day on Christmas eve, mind you), and we had our traditional Christmas Eve dinner of baked, stuffed shrimp (oh so NOT good for you), french fries, and caesar salad. On Christmas Eve, the 3 bigger kids put on a very short play for us--headed up by the oldest, who made sure everyone got together every day the prior week for "dress" rehearsals. Very cute, but lots of yelling on her part. Don't know where she picked up such behavior.
Christmas morning, we awoke VERY early to see what Santa brought, rifled through the stockings, then had our big Christmas morning breakfast before opening the rest of the gifts. The rest of the day is pretty much a blur.
One highlight: On Christmas Eve, in true last-minute-husband form, Scott brings out a giant box wrapped in plain brown paper with my name written across it in very large, all-cap lettering. Classic guy wrapping job!!! See pic.
Now, I end this post in hopes that I've satisfied you crazies who have been harassing me to no end about updating my blog! Done! Now I don't want to hear it for another 2 weeks---at least!!
