And a VERY MERRY CHRISTmas it was!!
We had a great weekend. We enjoyed our time together. Tim was very disappointed in TK's reaction to the 4-wheeler. We piled is gifts on and around it. He said WOW COOL - A... basketball! (Tim and I looked at each other like wha'?) So then we said what is the basketball sitting on?! He said very nonchalantly a 4-wheeler. He did get excited about it once he opened the helmet. They were out at 7:50AM (yep AM) riding it Christmas morning. I'm sure the neighbors were real happy! Oh well - it only comes once a year!
I did think of my wonderful friends I've made here and prayed that each of you were having a magical and blessed Christmas morning too!
I took yesterday off from work and went to the outlet mall. They have the BEST deals the day after and apparantly everyone is shopped out because the place is DEAD! I LOVE IT! I took Tucker with me because Tim isn't feeling well. I wasn't very thrilled about taking him shopping and trying on clothes etc HOWEVER he was the BEST ANGEL ever and we ended up having a TOTAL blast!!!! We went to have lunch after a couple of hours of shopping (and I never not even once had to yell at him - a 5 yr old boy shopping for womens clothes)! When we got done eating he announced to everyone outside... with hands raised in the air "This is the best day ever, I love this day, I love my mom, I love my dad"! WOW! I'm taking him shopping more often! LOL! Nah, better not press my luck!
Well, I hope you all have found your way out of the mounds of wrapping paper, ribbons and bows! Pat, I truly prayed that this Christmas was your best yet and that you were able to enjoy Josh and his brothers!

We had a wonderful Christmas. Your prayers worked because it was our first Christmas together in years and Josh was straight (90 days). Keep your fingers and toes crossed.

Holli, I happy that Tim and Tucker ended up having fun when it was all said and done. What a lovely moment that must have been when Tucker made his announcement while you were shopping. Treasure those times, girl. Once they're teenagers, it's fewer and farther between.

Love ya, Happy New Year!
