Hey! I realize that I haven't posted in what seems like forever! Life has been so hectic since my last post.
We had an awesome Christmas. It was wonderful having my parents here. They got here the Friday before Christmas, and on the Monday after they got here, Jesse took us to the Carousel Mall in Syracuse. That was fun.
Jesse worked the evening shifts so he wasn't around for all the family get-togethers. On Christmas Eve, we didn't do much of anything in the morning time. I wrapped presents while Jesse and my parents and the boys were out finishing up their Christmas shopping. Then later that evening, my boys, parents and I went to Jesse's Aunt Terry's for a wonderful ham dinner. Jesse's siblings and families were there as well as Aunt Terry's 2 sons and their families. Such fun! We sat around, stuffed our faces, played games and just chatted. It was great.
Then it was off to put the boys to bed before Santa's visit. He sure was good to them this year!
I was shockingly the first one up on Christmas morning and had to drag the boys out of bed ~ I think I need to do DNA tests to make sure they are MY kids! But we did get the presents opened and they got what they asked for PLUS SOME! And so did I! I got an awesome coach purse from my sister in law Suzanne ~ and I spent the better part of the morning "molesting" that purse!!!!!!!! And my parents got the boys and me a WII!!!!!!!!! I've been wanting one since the new mario brothers game came out, so we have been enjoying that too. We got lots of other cool stuff, like personalized plates and mugs from my other sister in law Kayte, cash from my inlaws ~ what's better than that! and Jesse got me clothes and hair stuff and Tucker got me a toaster!!!!!!!! So all in all a great Christmas as far as getting. I never feel like I am ever able to give enough, but I do what I can. Next Christmas, we are going to adopt a family and get them presents and all the fixin's for the meal and try to give in that way too!
Our New years was pretty ordinary. Jesse again worked, so me and the guys went over to my inlaws to stuff our faces and play games. Got home right before the ball dropped and watched that and went to bed!
Jesse has been making resolutions and his big one which I gladly jumped on board of was to get as much (if not all ) of our debt paid off.
And now, we are just trying to get our house back to normal! The Christmas decorations are down and though it looks a little bare in our corner where we had our tree, it's nice to have it clean and fresh looking!!!!!
Hope you're holidays were joyful and filled with blessings like mine!
