Merry Christmas!!! I didn't get to blog at Christmas-time because I was having issues with logging in- so I wanted to add the pictures now. Seems like such a long time has passed. We got up early, opened our presents- the girls made cup-cakes, then we were off to Royse City to spend the day with my Dad, step-mommy, grandpa, sister-in-law, brothers, brother's girlfriend, cousins, neices and nephews. We sang, the guys played guitars, we ate, we kissed, and hugged- that side of my family is so affectionate- I LOVE THAT!!! The kids ran around outside- and we just had the most wonderful time- really did- and the drive there and back didn't even make me want to pull all of my hair out this time!!! I'm getting better-WOOHOO!!!
