Christmas is Over

Well Christmas is over. Why does it seem to take forever to get here and yet it does not last that long? We had a wonderful Christmas.

On Friday the 22nd we went to Macon to see Momma Joy and Granddaddy Jim. The girls got to open there gift as soon as we got there. Madison got a littlest pet shop toy which she loved. Allison got a cell phone! The look on her face was priceless! She was so excited she almost cried. Momma Joy and Granddaddy Jim did good! We got to see Jay, Kim, and Erica on Saturday and Sunday too! When we got home Sunday we had no heat. Somehow the furnace tripped off and had to be reset. What a hassle.

I had to work on Monday, Christmas Eve, until noon and then we went to Wesley and Wendy's house for Christmas with the Wells side. Grammie, PawPaw, Joel, Katelyn, Wesley, Wendy, Ansley, Aunt Sherry, Uncle Jimmy, Marc, Jodi, Andrew, and Lucas were all there. We had a house full. We ate a wonderful dinner and watched to kids open presents. There was paper and presents everywhere.

Later that night we had to go to Christmas Eve services at our church, Cornerstone United Methodist Church. After church we stopped by Tyler's house so that he could meet and spend a little time with Allison. We got home about 8:00. Just in time to get the cookies, milk, and reindeer food out before Santa arrived. Allison was the first to be out. Madison took a bit longer. Keith and I were soon to follow. Allison got up around 1:30 am to find that Santa had indeed stopped by, however, he wrapped all the presents! She thankfully decided to climb in the bed with us and wait until 8am.

The girls were overwhelmed. We all enjoyed to presents being wrapped. Everyone was able to see exactly what they got and appreciate it.
I was informed that Santa has a better sense of style when it comes to rock star clothes. Allison says that is because he has girl elves. Santa brought everything from games to there Nintendo, clothes, Moon sand, school supplies to luggage. Keith and the girls were good to me. I got a robe, blanket, slippers, bath and body work stress relief lotion and body wash, a silver cross necklace, and a gold leaf nativity cross. Keith got 4 pair of pants, since he has lost so much weight his other will not stay up, an MP3 player, an electric razor, and 10 pair of boxers.

We were able to stay around the house and enjoy the gifts from Santa and a nap, before we had to go to Pop and Grananne's house. We had a great time. We got to see Natalie and Griffin. Madison and Griffin I think bonded! Madison just loved talking to him. We had a great dinner and got to open gifts. The girls just loved their Northface jackets and fur lined crocs. By about 8:30 we were all about asleep. I had to work the next day so bed it was. Lucky for us Keith was able to take off until Jan. 1st. We will have to take the girls to Macon that day for a visit with Mommy Joy and Granddaddy Jim. Thanks to them for helping us out until school starts back on the 7th.

I will try to update soon!

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, with visions of Santa dancing in their head.

Keith and I had just settled down when we heard a noise. We sprain to our feet to see what was the matter. What to our wonderful eyes did appear, but a beautiful tree full of present for Alli and Madi.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year! We have Santa Claus, presents, family and food. However we will always make sure that our children know the real meaning of Christmas, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior! Happy Birthday Jesus! Thank You for all that You have given us!

Allison's Christmas Program

Allison had her Christmas program, Snow Biz, on Wednesday. She did so good. Allison is such a performer and loves to sing. After the program her class had there Christmas party and she went home with her "boy" friend, Tyler.

Thursday Keith had the girls all by himself. When I got home the house was clean, laundry folded, and several presents under the tree for me! What a shock! Keith has done his shopping prior to Christmas Eve. Today they came by our office in Pop's convertible Mustang. I looked out the window of the office and there are my two girls propped up on the back seat with the top down. Thank God I work at a doctor's office. We might need them soon.

We are leaving tonight to go to Macon to have Christmas with Keith's mom and step dad. We always enjoy the time with spend with them.

I will try to update again soon.

Santa will be here in 4 days! We can not wait!

Madison's Christmas Program

Today was Madison's Christmas program at AEEC. They were so cute! They did a parachute act, a stick tapping act, and sang some holiday songs. They celebrated Christmas, Hanuka, and Kwanzaa. Thanks to those that were able to make it and for those who could not, please know that you were in our thoughts.

Madison was so happy to see that her intern teacher, Ms. Godwin, came to see the program. She finished her internship the beginning of this month and all the children were sad to see her go. She was attacked by the kids when they saw her. Madison gets so attached to her teachers.

Allison's class program is scheduled for Tuesday morning. I will post some more pictures then. Keith and I are headed to my office party tonight and Grammie and Paw Paw will be keeping the kids for us.

Love to All!

Merry Christmas

I just wanted to update everyone on our family. We are done with the shopping and wrapping! :) This is the first year that we have finished so early. We do still have to shop for our two families we are helping with our church group.

We have a very busy two weeks coming up. This weekend we have a Christmas party on Friday, free present wrapping at Tigertown and shopping for our families on Saturday, and on Sunday we have church that morning, community group that night and a concert at the church that night. Christmas is a very busy season, however, we always remember the real reason for the season.

The girls are so excited about Santa coming. Every morning Madison asks me how many more days. We all got on to check the naughty and nice list tonight. We all had a ton of laughs.

I hope to keep the website updated better now that we got our new computer. Our old one just took forever to do anything and last month it somehow got a Trojan horse that I could not get rid of. I have been using the one at work in my spare time, but in the winter time that is few and far between.

Hope everyone is doing good and I will update again soon.
