well hello again

I seem to be letting too much time pass by...but there is no normal in my life so why would I expect anything to be very different.

Feels pretty nice to be a fan of a National Championship team. Not sure when we will get to do this again. Losing too many seniors and with Cam Newton going, it could be a while. It was great while it lasted!

We had an awesome Christmas. All my kids were here, so it was perfect. Ethan got a puppy for Christmas. The response was not what we expected. He comes in and there is the dog with a cute little collar on her neck and a tag that says "To Ethan". Well, Ethan did not see Molly (Crickette's puppy) and he thought that Santa was trying to pull one over on him. He said it was Molly, we said no this is your puppy. He was ready to go back to bed. Chris had to go back and help him to see that this was his dog. When Crickette got Molly up and when Ethan came back and saw two dogs, it all changed. We let him pick out a name. He said He wanted to call her Love, well I told him it needed to sound like it ends with a y so it's easier to learn. So her name is Lovey! He loves to carry her behind his back. This may not last long, since she is growing.

We had a great day. Delievered donuts to a few fire stations, EMT station and police station. That is one of our traditions on Christmas morning. We go get donuts the night before and then take it to them on Christmas morning to say thank you for serving!

Excitement built through the day because it was all setting up for snow! So yes we got snow on Christmas. It was a beautiful site. I am not sure how much but it was covered. We tried to build a snowman but the snow was more powdery than anything, so he got to be short and squatty - sort of like me!

We have enjoyed our time with our sailor. He came home for Christmas for 10 days. It was exciting picking him up from the airport. He was so cute in his uniform. We saw lots of servicemen that day getting ready to go home to families! Paxston got to stay for Christmas, go back to Great Lakes for 10 days and then come back to us for 10 more days before he left for C-school.  Jordan and  I took him back last weekend to Dam Neck Viriginia where he will be stations for the next 185 days. The morning view was pretty! Too bad it was FREEZING cold outside, they said the coldest night of the year so far. We tried pictures on the beach but it was brutal!
So now you are caught up with us. Next weekend is gong to be FABULOUS! It's our weekend trip with 12 other couples going the mountains. Leaving the kids behind!!! The great part about the trip is the house, 3 story log cabin and all weekend the men cook and clean!! AWESOME! We stay up late and play games, one day we go to the outlets and they have the greatest scrapbooking store there! Counting down the days.
I am loving my Cricut. I have put things on two walls.
I also pained a few things on canvas, I did Ethan's name for his wall.
And I painted 3 of these for gifts and wound up selling another.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
