Merry Christmas!

Well all I can say is I am not keeping up with anything in my life... as I sit here blogging... I have not updated in a long time... I need to work on doing a very large and long update (not today though)... so be sure to have some time to devote the next time you come to my blog... it will be long I am sure... As of right now, I have no presents wrapped (except the Christmas Pj's they will wear tonight...), I have no cookies made, my Christmas cards were just picked up today!! (a side note... always pay the extra for 1 day at Wal mart.... I never realized when I ordered them a week and a half ago that they would not be in until today Christmas eve, and when I went into the store to see if I could get the envelopes so at least I could address them and get them out as soon as we picked them up, of course they said NO! grrrrrrrrrrrrr.),
and my house is somewhat of a wreck from all the shopping, grocery shopping and getting ready to bake cookies, plus I never really fully decorated this year since I was so busy with everything this year for some reason... I am not really sure what made me so far behind. Our living room is decorated and the front porch is decorated and we have candles in every window, but that is it! We usually have icicle lights up, wreaths on each window, and the whole house is usually decorated.
NOT this year..:-(
Well, I had better go I have a LOT to do.
I mainly wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Christ filled Christmas...!!
See you in a few days!

Its December Already.......

We have been very busy around here I have not posted in so long....I will give you a short recap of our December so far and maybe a little of our November.

We had a wonderful visit with Tyler's sister and her family over Thanksgiving... they drove down from Pennslyvania on Wednesday night... we shared a wonderful Thanksgiving meal! His sister Angie and I decided that there was nothing that special that we needed to get up really early for, so we slept in and went out about 9am or so. Got a few good deals and called it a day.

Friday evening Tyler, Jonathan, Hannah and his sister's family all went to the Dorman High football game against Byrnes for the spot in the state championship. It was a good game but Dorman couldn't hold them this time. Abigail, Sarah and me opted to go to Haywood mall for a little more shopping. We had a fun time. I forgot to take any pictures of the kids and their cousins over Thanksgiving... I was going to take a picture of the cute plates the kids used but someone used the last one!
