Happy Christmas Eve

This time of year can be crazy. It can be stressful and overwhelming. And for some people it can be lonely. We can lose sight of what's truly important. But no matter how much I am stressed, no matter how much there is to do inevitably by the time I wake up Christmas Eve I am in full holiday spirit mode.

I am so happy this year because I know all the wonderful things that 2010 is going to bring. I am happy this year to be able to so close to all my family and to be able spend time with them all.  I am grateful for the life I have, the man I married and the many, many other blessings God has given me.  And because it is that time of year I wanted to make sure all my family knew how much they have blessed me this year and how much I love them.

Dad & Mom - You are the perfect examples of love, grace, and kindness.  Thank you for continued support and encouragement throughout this year.  I'm so glad Jackson has you for your grandparents.  He couldn't be more blessed.

Josh & Nicole - It's not been an easy year but you have both met the challenge and showed the world that you are a team and always will be.  I've watched the two of you become closer and stronger through adversity.  I'm so proud of you both and blessed to call you brother & sister.

Andy & Jill - Andy you picked the right one!  I'm so happy you have found the perfect girl for you.  And Jill I am so happy to have you as a sister.  You fit right in!  Even if we still have to watch you guys make out like the newlyweds you are! :-)  I know 2010 holds some awesome things for you!

Lovebug & Butterbean - Tia's girls!  I love you both so much.  You make me laugh.  You always run at me full tilt with your arms wide open.  I hope that as you grow up you know that Tia is always here for you.

Sherrie - I know it's been hard.  I KNOW, but I can't imagine how you have felt this year.  You've made some huge sacrifices to do the right thing.  I hope you know that I'm proud to be your sister and I love you so much.  I know next year is going to be a little brighter, a little better.  Good things are coming.  I just know it. 

Bradley - You are on the right path!  Keep it up!  I know you are going to become someone amazing that we are all so proud of.  Work hard.  It's worth it.  I promise.

Frank - I'm glad you were here to celebrate this year with us.  I'm glad that I am getting the opportunity to know you better.  Be strong.  Persevere.  I believe in you and what you can do.

Hubby - Love of my life.  Wasn't sure I would ever get it but I did.  Father of our son.  You make me laugh and drive me crazy.  I wouldn't have it any other way. 

My heart is full today for each of you too that have read over the last year.  Through the good, the bad and the sarcastic.  I wish you all (yes all 8 of you!) a wonderful Christmas.  I hope its full of lights and cookies and family and laughs and relaxation.  Take the time to hug someone's neck today or call and tell them you love them. 

Happy Christmas Eve friends.

Christmas Documentation, Part I

I have to document it right? What I did for Christmas. So here it is in a two-part series. First, Christmas Eve.

Fried Turkey-a-la-Lil' Bro
I wonder what it could be?

This year we were with my fam for Christmas. So the festivities start on Christmas Eve with us. We all get together and get to open one gift. And every year it is (SURPRISE!) jammies. I personally love this. I heart jammies a whole lot and I love to add to my collection. The guys, however, are not so keen on it. I take that back. My BIL is VERY keen on it, it's Hubs, Lil' Bro and Dad that aren't so keen. Anywho, no difference this year, we all got in our jammies, and got the "Santa" gifts ready for the kids. I was really excited about spending Christmas with the girls this year. I think it is because they are old enough to understand it. It makes it more fun.

Hubby is SUPER excited about his jammies.
Getting the girls stockings ready.

So jammies, goodies and setting up presents. That's Christmas Eve! Part II coming real soon to a computer near you.

Just testing out the girl's walkie-talkie's to make sure they "work".

More Family Fun

On Sunday we had our final family Christmas party. This side of the family is the smallest of the 4 I have. Yes. FOUR. Maternal, paternal, paternal and in-laws. I'm exhausted.

This was just a small gathering with my grandparents and my aunt. My g-ma is so cute you just want to squeeze her. She is a pocket-size grandma. The kind you want to carry around in your pocket all day with you. Her house is filled with vintage things and handmade things. I always love going there because its like a little time travel.

My grandparents actually gave both my sister and myself a set of vintage mixing bowls. Apparently she bought them years ago and saved them for us to give at just the right time. I love them because they are brightly colored and a little beat up.

Twinkle, twinkle little lights

We got our tree!! Don't you just love our little tree? Complete with our crooked little star.

Hubby was giggling at me for most of the time. This will be his first experience of me at Christmas and in my family we go ALL out. I mean, as far out as you can get. We LUV Christmas. For example, I cleaned my house all day today. During that time I played Christmas music the entire time. I'm talking 6 hours of holly jollies. That's luv.

So the house is decorated, the gifts we have our wrapped and we are all ready to go. Our First Christmas. Say it all together now. . .Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
