I haven’t posted for the past several days because….well I was just too busy! I am one of those last minute shoppers, which means I’m also a last minute wrapper. I didn’t start my shopping until Black Friday. I finished the day before Christmas Eve.
Christmas Eve found me rushing around like a chicken with it’s head cut off; trying to get everything done before the next day. It started off with getting up early to get ready for our best friends, the Jones family, to visit. We spent a couple hours hanging out chatting, then after they left, I had to clean the kitchen….to prepare to bake and mess it up again. And keep in mind, I still had a crap ton of presents to wrap. I spent a couple hours baking and dealing with some family drama…actually the family drama lasted for a couple days and is still ongoing evidently. Merry Christmas!!
So anyway…I didn’t start wrapping the presents until about midnight on Christmas Eve. I finished at 5am, went to bed and was up again at 8am to the sounds of Allie and Faith banging on our bedroom door. *sigh*. It wouldn’t have been Christmas if I got more than 3 hours of sleep. After all the presents were unwrapped, and I got a nap in…I did another round of cooking for our family dinner at my mom’s. All in all, it was a pretty good weekend (not counting the needless family drama). I’m so thankful that we had all of our children at home for the holidays. As some of you may remember, the oldest two boys are away at college the majority of the year….so it has been great spending time with them.
I’ve included a few pictures from this weekend. I would have had more, but my camera decided to die right in the middle of opening presents….and silly me bought the wrong kind of batteries…and nothing was open….so…yeah. Most of these were taken with my cellphone, so they are not the best quality.

And it just wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t have at least one silly picture to show
