Been a busy holiday weekend

Christmas Eve was spent getting ready for Christmas with my mother and grandmother and family. God sent us a surprise and we had a snow storm so we had a white Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It was so fun to watch the kids in the snow!!! Christmas Eve Candlelight Services was beautiful although it was entertaining with Miss E who didn't have a nap so she was in rare form.

Grandma bought Miss E a kitchen set with dishes and food. Miss E LOVED it!! She was being a brat and throwing fits. As soon as we brought out the kitchen set, she was hooked. She had her "baby" and she was busy playing. Landon had fun on his new toys as well.

Santa brought the kids a tricycle for Miss E and a new, fast nerf gun for Mr L. Mr L was soooo happy. Then we busted out of the house dressed in our new Christmas Clothes to leave for Granbury to spend time with Damon's family. Miss E got a real rocking horse and Mr. L got a Leapster handheld. Which he has barely put down since Christmas Day. Miss E also got a baby doll and stoller so she promptly put the baby in the stroller and then pushed it all around. We then left later in the afternoon and hauled booty on our way to Cranfills Gap to have Christmas with my family. We were there about an hour when I called in some help to meet Damon halfway between Hamilton and Gap to pick up Miss E because she was very tired and being very uncooperative. After she was gone, we were able to enjoy the evening a lot more without having to worry about her sneaking out and getting into their pool or falling down the stairs.

Saturday was a sad day for us. We had to go to a funeral for a friend of ours who was stabbed and died from his injuries. He left behind a lot of friends, a young wife, and grieving family. I guess with all of the preperations for Christmas with the family I didn't let myself think about it, so at the funeral, I really broke down. I guess since it was so tragic the circumstances by which it happened, it was so much more sad. By the time the funeral and graveside services were done, I was so drained, I real wasn't sure if I wanted to go to my family's Christmas. But we did go and had a good time.

Today's been a lazy day. I did some laundry, but not much. A friend of ours came by with her kids and hung out at our house. We warmed up leftover homemade quesadillas and tamales and I whipped up some homemade salsa, and we chowed down on that while the kids played. We talked and hung out. It was good to see her since they live near Houston and don't get down here that often. It was a great way to wind down the weekend, spending a lazy Sunday with a good friend and good food.

My baby girl turned two today!! I can't believe my baby is two!?!! We are going to have a little party for her New Year's Day. It's kind of sad that my baby is no longer a baby, and really she comes up with new things every day to do and say. My little curly top mop..I love her soooo much even though she sometimes causes me to pull my hair out of my head.

I guess I better get to folding and put away laundry, and get the kids ready for bed. But I'm gonna do that while watching the Cowboys play the Redskins. Go Boys!!!
