Christmas Spirit

Christmas break went too fast. I'm already back at my apt laying on my new memory foam bed (thanks to the parents) and in the pajamas. Oh wait, I didn't get out of my PJs all day. Why if you have sore throat and a little cough? I had a great Christmas. It all started Tuesday morning when I stopped by Kendra's before going to work and Jackie was there! She surprised us all by coming home for Christmas. Best Christmas present ever.
We got home Wednesday night and the fun began. Mckenna slept with me in the movie room and woke up in the middle of the night with the croop. Poor girl, but somehow we still played in the snow. We ended up making 5 snowmen. I thought I had pictures of all of them. I guess not. Sad day, because the witch bride was the best.

Christmas Eve day we went to my Uncle's house where we got to eat and enjoy one another's company. We played family feud which was a lot of fun. Later that day, we got the snowmobiles out and took the kiddos out for a ride. They loved that! Too bad I forgot to take my camera once again. That night we got together as a family and read a few stories and the little ones opened their jammies. Then off to bed we went. Mckenna and I watched Elf until we fell asleep.

Mom Calls and tells us to wake up because we need to get started or it will take us all day. We all head down and the kids were going crazy. Halee loved her baby doll and knew it was just for her. She wouldn't let Mckenna have it. Jack got spoiled with a ton of Mega Bloks toys and trucks. He loved them so much. All Mckenna wanted was a tangled barbie doll and she got it. She played with that all day.

Here's to 2010

I was looking through my photos and I thought how fun it would be to show a time line of this past year in photos from my phone. I noticed I missed a few gaps of taking photos.

As I look back over this past year, I think it has been a pretty darn good one. Tough at times, but worth it. There were some sad times, hurtful times, crazy times, fun times, exciting times, and rough times. I will not take back any of those times. I have learned and grown from these times. It's what has made me who I am today. Here is to 2010. Bring on 2011!

A lot of this

My roomies and I have been doing a lot of this lately. Can't complain. Who wants to be outside where it's cold when you could be snuggled up in a blanket watching Christmas movies? I love every bit of it and I am glad they love it just as much. That's one of the many reasons why we are friends.

And for some really good news.... I am officially done with finals as of this morning! Now I can make gingerbread boys, watch more movies, go home for Christmas, and catch up on some things that have been at the bottom of my list this past... year. :)

Bring On December

When I was doing my browsing, I came across some of these lovelies. Not saying that I'm hungry or anything, but they DO look good. I have become a hot chocoholic this winter if I say so myself. Maybe that is why I am so drawn to these things or maybe it's because I am also cold.

(Just Be Splendid)

Bijou Market

First off today is my amazing mom's birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! I was lucky to go to dinner with her and most of the family last night.

Second of all: Bijou Market happened a couple weekends ago. If you didn't go, you sure missed out. I got the girls together to head down to have some fun. Just what I needed. Ann-Marie was smart enough to pull out her Flip video camera and show you a good time just in case you forgot to go. :) I had all intentions on making a video, but Ann-Marie beat me to it. It's totally worth sharing (thanks Ann-Marie). Oh and don't mind me in the video. It's just me being me.

You have another chance of going to something like this this weekend! It's called the Beehive Bazaar. Have you heard of it? If not, go check it out. Let me know if you want to go with me tonight.
