Merry Christmas!

We have had a wonderful holiday season. It has been wet and cold Christmas. Usually we can still play outside this time of year. Today it will be in the low 70's but a few days ago there was frost on our grass. not a common sight to see.

Our ward had a Christmas breakfast with Santa. The kids had a lot of fun seeing Santa. Parker was very shy. I took Parker to see Santa at the mall when the other kids were at school. He was so cute with Santa. He was so shy but still managed to let Santa know that he wanted a Thomas choo choo train.

We went to Chandlers moms house for Christmas Eve. This time it was spent with the Oberlys (step family) and it was a lot of fun. The Oberlys are a lot of fun to hang out with. The kids usually act out the Christmas story while papa Skip reads it but this year Grandma Connie wrote a little script to go with it. The kids had a lot of fun acting and saying their parts. It was a very fun night full of yummy food and great company.

That night i was so dead tired. Even thought the kids are on break I still wake up at 6am and go to the gym. So i'm tired around 9 9:30. I'm soo done. The kids are so off schedule. On sunday they slept in till 10am. good thing our church time is at 12:30pm.. so i kept falling asleep on the couch because it was 9:30 and we were still trying to get the kids to settle down. I finally had to go shower to wake up some. I still had some wrapping to do. We'll i gave up getting Parker to sleep and Santa finally came. The kids woke up at 6am. Everyone loved their gifts! A little too much.

They all got ninetendo ds's and won't put them down, I've had to threaten them with taking them away just to have them get dressed for the day and eat. I've been buying myself stuff this last month for my Christmas gifts. I got some new workout clothes, jeans, music, and gym shoes which i love love love! Chandlers gift was having money to start his MMA gym. I did fix his favorite watch, slippers, a hoodie, and some cologne. We then had a late lunch at Buffys house. Yummy food again. I lost again playing a ticket to ride. It's a fun game but i'm two for two as being the LOSER. ha but it's fun..

Workouts still on. It is my outlet and i love going to the gym! Feeling good for the most part. We are having friends over tonight to celebrate the new year! I hope everyone has fun tonight! I always get nervous entertaining because I want everyone to have a good time.

Don't worry about the ticket to ride game, I loose all the time too, but I am determained to get better and show the whole family my new riding skills. Glad you all had so much fun!

I don't get to these too often, so it's fun to take a minute to read them. Sure love you guys. We'll miss you at dinner today. See you Tuesday, Parker.

Love, Grandma Connie
