Fun and crazy times



I don't know about you guys but I am exhausted. I need a holiday from my holiday. Now, don't get me wrong. We had a blast at Christmas. We stayed with Mom and Dad for a whole week. And while we had fun I'm sure they were ready to get rid of us! HA! We love being home in the 'ville and having the kids get to run outside without me having to be there the whole time. Macy always says, "Mom, I'm going outside....I can because we are at Neena's." Its sad that even a 5 year old knows that she can't play outside by herself in the big city. We had so much fun with Avery and Jaxon on their first Christmas. It was fun to watch them and their Santa stuff. It is so much fun to have cousins.


We also had Chrismas at my sweet sister-in-laws house. She lives way out in the country. I mean she has acres and acres. So of course they have fun things like 4 wheelers that my kids think are the best thing EVER! And yes, they are fun. I have to pray while they are gone though. Those things make me nervous. But I know how much fun they have on them. Macy went out with Mindy and rode around in the freezing cold. Thy don't care if its cold they just like being outside. We had fun eating, laughing, eating, playing games, and opening white elephant presents. That's always a riot!



We finally took down all our Christmas stuff. Even with our tree down we are still watching The Grinch. Its one of Macy's favorite. I do love my tree. I am a little sad its gone. I love my Christmas decorations. I'm sad they are gone. I love my Chrismas dishes....didn't even get them out this year. I was really sad about that. So, now that all is down and there is no sign of Christmas we are "winter cleaning" and it feels good. We have thrown out stuff like you wouldn't believe. We even threw out some Reid's old toys. I am REALLY sad about that.



I know it has been a while since I have last posted. Of course, one of my goals this year was to be better about blogging so that when I am old and gray I will remember things. HA! Wait...I am already starting to forget things. yikes... Anyway, just wanted you to know I am still here, still blogging and still trying to catch up after all the holiday rush. Here's to 2008!

its so good to see your new post. I just now got around to doing mine too! I'm so glad that you guys had fun in Smithville. Isn't it funny how different everything is in a small town? Kinda takes you back to a different time, doesn't it? Anyway, I'm glad you and yours are back and looking forward to many fun times together!
Love ya!
