Enjoyed Every Minute

Pictures from our trip to Marbles Museum
I don't even know where to start my mind is such a jumbled mess!! Nothing is done around here. My tree and decorations are still up. Laundry is piling up. Some Christmas food is still in the fridge and what isn't...then I have eaten. Bills are not paid . I haven't called my friends and family that I wanted to over the holidays and this is really bothering me. I am behind on commenting on face book, blogs and emails. My house is not clean. I have Not made one single list in Three Days...yes, I am telling the truth. I still haven't made my 2010 Calendars or photo books. I am behind, behind.
But..........I have had a wonderful, awesome time with my Grandson Bryson for the past three days. I have Loved every minute of all the I haven'ts are so worth it!! I have taken two ....naps this week (something I never do) snuggled up against a three year old is heaven!!! We have played with Lincoln Logs, Cars, Read Books and Talked and Talked. We went out to eat, to Target and to the Marbles Museum. All the things that I have done with Bryson more than make up for the things I haven't done. Tomorrow I do have to get some things done!!

Christmas Celebration #5

Our last Christmas celebration was with my brother Greg. He spent a few days with Rusty, Meredith, Ally and Colby and Christmas Eve and part of Christmas Day. Gerald and Rusty always meet half way to exchange Greg. He went with us to Sheila's. Then after we got home Christmas Day we gave him presents from us, the girls and what Santa brought him to our house. He gave us the presents he bought and paid for with his own money. I got slipper socks and pot holders and Gerald got candy. He also bought for Rusty's family and my girls' families. Greg has Special Needs...oh how I love that instead of what "people" used to say. Truth be told he is extremely smart in so many ways...he has a much better memory than I do and things that he does that some people find "odd" well .......I do them too and so do a lot of other people I know.

I could just re post last years and the year before and the year before....Once again we had a big dinner (around 3pm was suppose to be at 1pm) at Gerald's sister Sheila's house. We all take something so no one person has to do too much. Once again certain ones ( no names) left before cleaning up and once again certain ones stayed to do the clean up. I am sure you can guess who stayed.. I want to say something but of course my too sweet husband says no I can't and being the perfect obedient wife...Stop laughing....yes I am......I do as I am told. I wanted to draw names but that didn't work out...Didn't really feel like Christmas just a repeat of Thanksgiving... Hopefully next year we can do something different ( and this is coming from me ...who hates change). All in all it was a great time...everyone was good this year.

Christmas Celebration #3

This Christmas Eve we had a brunch with Angela (oldest daughter) and Kendrick, Emily (youngest daughter & grandson's mommy), Sean and Bryson(grandson). After brunch we all opened presents. It was so much fun watching Bryson this year because (being 3) he open all his presents by himself. He was so CUTE. Can you tell I am a proud Gramme!?

Merry Christmas

Wishing Everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!!

This is your Christmas card this year. I have had "do Christmas cards" on my list since the beginning of December and for some reason just didn't do them. In fact it's still on my list. I am afraid it's one (of many) things that will not get done this year. Just hope I get over this feeling guilty feeling I have.

Christmas Celebration 2009 #2

Last night we went out to eat with our Long Time Best Friends......Shelba and David. We have known them for about 41 years!!! Gerald and David might have known each other longer. I'm going to have to check on that. Shelba and I became instant friends while in high school. We raised our kids together, living just down the street from each other for several years. Shelba and I can talk for hours and never run out of things say. I am so fortunate that I found her!! and I did find her!! Even though we are not related by blood, we are family!!

Christmas Celebration 2009 # 1

Our first Christmas celebration of 2009 was held last night on my 39th wedding anniversary! Menu---snack foods ---because it's the easiest and everyone brings something. We had a great time talking and watching the kids play. It got a little loud at times but everyone took it rather well.( could it be what Gerald put in his famous Sausage Balls ).

Foot Steps

There are many footsteps Bryson could follow....good men, great men in fact...I could name many but I hope he turns out just like his Grandpa!!! If you are related to me and read this please don't get mad and say "well what about him or him." I already said that there are many great men!! I know, I know and if Bryson turns out just like them, that would be great too!! In fact I am sure he will the best Bryson!! He already is!!!

Griswold's NOT

Last weekend my sister in law, Meredith, said we had to bring Bryson over to play with Ally and Colby and see their yard. She said it's going to look like the Griswold's! Rusty, my brother, had gone crazy with the blow ups.
So last night we took our granson over to see. Turns out Rusty did a great job spacing the blow ups around the yard and it looks good. The kids had a wonderful time running around looking and playing!
That is one of the fun things about Christmas!! Seeing the delight in a childs eyes!
