Christmas Presents Time!!

It's almost time for the new year. Hope everyone has some special plans. None here, We'll probably be home playing games together or something as a family :) I'm looking forward the new year. I don't have any resolutions although I should be getting on a weight loss plan and finding a church for the family. Those are just thoughts. But we'll see.

I feel like we were really blessed this Christmas and my girls were spoiled. As always I do have pictures to share from our Christmas. Here is a picture of our tree with the girls gifts :)

Here are a few photo's from our christmas with Mom :) For some reason I didn't get a picture or Abbey with her gifts from Nana or any of the rest of us with all our gifts, I hate when I do that, A picture of everyone with all of their gifts in one shot is so much easier to Scrapbook :)

Christmas morning at home was delightful, The only thing missing was Ashley, She was at her Dad's this year for Christmas Morning. We hd the web cam set up so Jake's parents could watch Abbey open her gifts. Abbey opened her gifts and she found her favorite right away :)

Here I am with my gifts from Jake, He spoiled me :) I got an ipod 20GIG!!, a kitchen dock for the ipod (thank god! as much time as I spend back there music will make it so much more enjoyable:)) and a tuner to use it in the car although we're having trouble finding a station to tune it into.. hrm...

I didn't get pictures of Jake with his gifts, I'll have to sit him down for one, I can't believe we didn't take one!!!

Of course Ashley was not left out completely. We let her have her Christmas as soon as she got home last night. The easy bake oven was a favorite right away, She's already made cookies in it and she loves it, She squeeled when she opened it.. hehe!!!

Well that was our Christmas. We had a good one. Ashley is out of school for the week but now she has lots of goodies to keep her occupied. I have to clean out the girls room one day this week to make room to organize all the new stuff in there.

Ashley is sleeping in this morning, When she came home from her Dad's yesterday she was all snotty and not feeling to well, So I'm letting her sleep. When she get's up we need groceries so I hope she feels up to the trip.

We had a good weekend, I got to do LOTS of knitting which I hadn't done in awhile. Jake and I watched Seven Pounds at the movie on Christmas Day, That is the saddest movie I've ever seen and so good, Will Smith is such an amazing actor. Then on Saturday we watched 3 movies at home the sequal to National Lampoons Christmas vacation via Netflix, it was awful, It was only about Counsin Eddie and so dumb Jake fell asleep half way thru. Then we watched Silence of The Lambs because I'd never seen it. It was as disturbing as I knew it would be, which was why I never watched it when I was younger. LOL!!! Then we watched "The Bucket List" which was a wonderful movie, I love Jack Nicholson he sure is aging :)

I guess that's it for now, I need to get some meal planning and grocery list things going.

Until Next time . . .
