I know I'm late, but it is still the holidays, so the heading still applies.
Boy, it's been a busy couple days for us. I had all sorts of activities last week including ornament exchanges, a surprise birthday party (Happy Birthday Rachel!), dinner with friends and a Christmas party. Then, Friday began the family festivities. Saturday continued them and then Sunday, Christmas Eve, we were able to spend alone...just myself, Steve and Jenna. We ended up eating at Chili's (Steve's favorite) and going home to drink hot chocolate and watch Christmas Vacation. Then of course, Santa Claus came and Jenna was ecstatic. She slept WAY better than I did. I was up most of the night with anticipation for HER! Santa was extra good to Jenna this year. She got the Butterscotch pony she was begging for. It's a good thing Santa came through on that because she was visibly disappointed when it wasn't sitting under the tree (we had it hidden for after the other gifts were opened). Christmas day night was spend with the Taylor side of the family. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE our get togethers (even though few and far between) because they are so NORMAL! I love each and every one of them and always have fun no matter who is there.
We were off work yesterday and spend the entire day taking down the Christmas decorations inside and out. Steve got to rearranging the garage closet in order to get the Christmas stuff back in and that got me in the garage cleaning out the remaining boxes from our move last year. I made quite a dent in them. After we deliver the remaining boxes to the donations center and a girl we are giving some baby clothes, there will be just a tiny spot left of boxes that I know need to come in the house and their contents redistributed, but I'll just have to find the time. Right now, I have about 10 boxes in the foyer of things that just need to be redistributed. That is one of our activities for today. I have laundry left to do and then get a few groceries. Once that's done, we should be ready for work tomorrow. Couple days of work and then I'm off again until Wednesday the 3rd when Jenna goes back to school.
I am hoping that each of you had as wonderful Christmas as we had. I am looking forward to an awesome 2007. I'm not making many resolutions this year for obvious reasons (who ever keeps them?!), but I do have a few. I'll post those in a few days. Until then, I'm going to work on getting some Christmas pictures up on this blog. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
