Christmas 2008

Santa didn't deliver this until 3:30...It was a late night!

So fun!

Daddy and Shelby

Having fun with the trains.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We had a great Christmas Eve with our families and Shelby was so excited when we put her to bed. They slept in until 9:00 and she was so excited to see what Santa gave to her. He brought her and Keaton a very fun train table. They are in love with it. She started jumping up and down when she saw it. We enjoyed the morning and then spent the rest of our day with our families. It was so good to be able to spend the day with our families. I am so thankful to live so close to them. That was one crazy storm that came in Christmas night. It was so scary driving home. Merry Christmas everyone!!

Why do kids like to bonk their heads on things and think it's funny? Will someone please tell me that? Shelby and Keaton think it's hilarious to hit their heads on doors, walls etc. A few night's ago the kids were playing and Keaton bonked his head so hard on the corner of a door. I go downstairs and there was blood everywhere. Its was covering his entire face. I was freaking out!! Luckily I got it cleaned up and about 10 minutes later he was good as new. He is such a happy boy.

Let the good times roll

It's been a fun week. We have had a lot of good stuff going on. Last Sunday we did our annual gingerbread houses. There were a lot of cute ones! Things always get silly whenever I'm around the fam. I got Alysia good...and she knows what I mean.

On Thursday, Shelby's school had this adorable program. I was so proud of her. She got up with her class and they sang 3 songs. She looked like a beautiful angel up on stage. I am so sad because we need a new camera and I didn't get one good picture of her up on stage.

Friday night was a family party. Everyone makes different homemade soup and it was delish. I look forward to my aunt's soup every year. It was so nice to see everyone that we don't get to visit with very often.
Saturday morning was the next family party. That was some good eatin' too. We had a pinata and bingo and you cant you wrong with that. Santa stopped by and Shelby was quite happy about that.

On a side note it has been BAD news at work this week. They have had to cancel flight after flight the last 5 days. I feel so bad for people trying to get home for Christmas. Our Operations Manager sent out an email and said this is the worst it has affected the airlines in years.

You better watch out...You better not cry...

This year is so much fun with the kids! I love everything about Christmas! Jana and I took Dax and Keaton to the mall to go see Santa. Keaton wasn't too sure about sitting on his lap, but he was sure he wanted a candy cane. I think this Santa is so cute. This year is totally different with Shelby. Last year she was terrified of Santa and this year she loves him. She wants me to sing the song "Santa Clause is Coming to Town" over and over.

Peeps....I love my job....I won a cruise and decided to take Tucker over his birthday. It was so fun. I got a little nervous before we left because the day we were leaving all of the flights sold out so we had to fly into a different airport then planned but we made it on. The cruise ship left out of Miami and went to Key West and Cozumel, Mexico. The weather wasn't all that great when we left. We were still wearing our sweaters! That night we had a yummy dinner and watched a fun show.

Miami--Happy Birthday Baby!

The grand atrium inside the boat

The next day we got into Key West in the morning and it was cloudy there too. The water was so pretty and FYI, it is the southern-most point in the US. We took a bus into the city and did some window shopping and tried the famous key lime pie. It was fun to walk around and people watch there too. Right before we left it got really windy and cold. Blah... That night it was SO rough. The boat was rocking back and forth and a lot of people got sea sick. I thought it was quite fun actually.

Key West

Just taking a quick bike ride with my buddy
The next day we arrived in Cozumel around noon. It was different then I thought it would be but still very fun. We did some more walking and shopping. We took a horse drawn carriage around the city and then did a glass bottom boat tour. The water was gorgeous and it was so cool to see the fish. That night we went to Senor Frogs and it was crazy. It was like major spring break stuff. Me and Tucker felt very out of place so we did not stay long.
The last day was an "at sea" day so we just spent it eating and laying out. The Ocean is my BFF, so I loved it!
There were dolphins swimming along us as we left!

The slide on our boat

We had a layover in New York so we went into the city and walked around Times Square for awhile. I have always wanted to see the tree at Rockefeller plaza at Christmas. It was huge and beautiful!

The Tree

Tucker's first time in New York.
