christmas was a lot of fun this year.
i'm pretty sure when the kids are this age,
brette really, really understood santa, jesus and
i used tootie, our friendly elf on the shelf, for
all it's worth making sure she behaved herself.
sometimes, i would even have her go over and
apologize to tootie if she did something mean to
reid, just so she understood that we only promote good behavior.
mwah ha ha ha.
i loved it.
reid loved christmas too.
she kind of understands, but she would cry if brette
told her tootie was going to tell santa she was a bad girl.
those girls are already starting - i can only
imagine what its going to be like in 10 years.
christmas morning was magic,
hot chocolate, donuts and a tornado of
presents that was completely unwrapped in
about 10 minutes.
they loved their new bikes - i can't wait
for spring when we can take them outside and
start learning to ride.
we got some snow the day before christmas,
which was the best present ever,
so we all played in the snow and went sledding.
i actually took off work the whole week, so
i was home with them for 10 days straight.
i made me miss my time at home with them.
i get so much done and i love having them with me,
but i also missed missing them, if that makes sense?
i still think - my goal in life is to make good money
only working part time.
it would be the best of both worlds.
we made our way into the new year down in warrensburg
with turnbow's and glover's and the kiddos.
we did a fake countdown around 7:30pm after dinner, so
we could get the kids in pj's and in bed at my parent's
house around 8pm.
then i headed back to turnbow's to ring in the new year
with the adults.
we played "what do you meme?" - a hilarious game and
i loved being with my girlfriends.
not much has been going on since then.
its freaking freezing so ronnie and i have been
using our weekends to get organized and
FINALLY clean out our basement.
we're literally unpacking boxes from 3 years ago to
see if it's junk or something we should keep.
i've made two trips to Goodwill and ronnie has made
s e v e r a l trips to the dumpster.
it feels good to get it out of the house.
i hope your christmas and new year was lots of fun!
