So, it has been a while since I have posted. I've been busy (along with the rest of the world).
Last Thursday, the boys had their school "holiday" party (to be Politically Correct). On Friday, we hung out as a family and watched the 2007 DVD I made (with pictures from the past year put to music) for Jeffrey. It was fun!
On Saturday, we met Jeffrey's family at Chuck E. Cheese (jealous?...ha ha!) for Ty's birthday. After CEC, we went to Toby & Michele's house for birthday cookie. After that, it was time to open Christmas presents with Papa Jerry. The boys were very excited! That night, they spent the night for a "Cousin Sleepover". Jeffrey and I had a quiet evening together and had breakfast out the next morning.
On Sunday, we went to Ft. Worth to see my grandparents. Jeffrey bought Granddad a t-shirt from A&M (G'dad had forgotten that Jeffrey went to A&M) and he put it on. I'm pretty sure that was the first t-shirt my granddad had ever worn I think!
On Monday, Jeffrey had to work (bummer). My parents got here around 1pm. Papa took the boys to see Alvin and the Chipmunks while mom and I got to get a mani/pedi! Yippee! After that, we went home to make dinner. We had tamales, enchiladas, and all the trimmings. Yummy! We all piled in the car and went to look at Christmas lights, got in our pjs, and then opened the boys presents from my parents. No church this year...don't tell anyone! We had limited time with my parents so we took advantage of it. Jeffrey gave me his "big" present. Guess what it was? He bound all of my blog entries for the past 1 1/2 years! Can you believe that??? So stinkin' thoughtful! I didn't even know he cared about my blog!!! I love having all the entries put together! He took off a day of work to do it. It took him 4 hours at Kinko's!! What a sweetie!!!
Jeffrey put the boys to bed as I frantically went with my dad to find some canned green beans! I had been to the store every day but forgot to pick up the green beans for the green bean casserole I was supposed to take to Mimi's house! Yikes! All grocery stores were closed! I e-mailed a few friends and Jean came through! She had frozen green beans which worked perfectly! Whew!
On Tuesday, the boys woke up at 5:45am (yes, I typed that correctly). They were excited to find their presents (see pictures) and we had a yummy "breakfast buffet" together. It was nice. At 11am, we went to Mimi and Pops house and said goodbye to Nana and Papa (they went to Memaw & G'dad's house). The kids were so excited to show their cousins their new presents and played until about 6pm!
Yesterday, we stayed in our pajamas all day long! Yes, I mean all day long! It was so great and relaxing (poor Jeffrey had to work!)! I even put away all the Christmas decorations!
But...Christmas isn't over yet! We still have Christmas with Mimi & Pops again on Sunday! Stay tuned for more pictures...
