Typical Christmas Post

I wouldn't be a true blogger if I didn't jump right on and blog about my wonderful, fabulous Christmas and New Year right? Well it was wonderful and fabulous. David and I had a relaxing time with our families and it was so nice to be with people that we love and that (hopefully) love us!

I must say, Grant did pretty darn good on the trip. He's been skipping out on naps lately, and while it is very annoying to have a booger nose kid attached to me all day, this whole "no nap" thing seemed to work out beautifully on vacation. I didn't have to worry about keeping everything quiet, and rushing back to get him down etc. Very easy! And lo and behold he likes naps again. A true (after Christmas) miracle!

He had a great time with his cousins and Dobby the dog. David and I were spoiled by all of Grant's loving aunts/uncles/grandparents. We hardly had to watch the kid, I could get used to that....hum....kind of defeats the point of having kids right?

We had a great time just playing with family, eating yummy food, sharing Christmas memories, listening to others talents and stories, shooting guns, playing with the dogs, and mainly just being together. We also tried to take care of my mom....she wanted to impress us by doing the splits, actually she fell on the floor and tore her hamstring. She didn't let that stop her from having fun though!

I'm really excited about 2011, I can feel that it's going to be a good year. Now that I wrote that I of course will be cursed. Watch my back!

We had a fun New Year's party with friends. The kids were all downstairs watching a movie while the adults were busy chatting and playing games. Next thing we know their is rice ALL over the basement. The kids we either a.) pretending someone was getting married b.) helping use up the food storage or c.) decided that lil' smokies and cookies were not a sufficient dinner. This was probably the only time I didn't envy someone with a good food storage supply!

Is that a Ukelalie (spelling?) you're playing? You've been holding out on me, I never knew you played any instruments! And bless your mom's little heart for even attempting to do the splits. She's awesome!

Kat- you should be very jealous of my awesome uke skills! Ha!

I guess I should have reworded that...she slipped on the clean floor and tore her hamstring. I was just joking about the splits. Although she can touch her nose to her knees:)
