Warning - this is just short of a book - and I'm sorry for it being so long, but if you do not read it in its entirity - I won't hold ANYTHING against you! :)
As much as I love and appreciate everything associated with Christmas and the birth of Jesus, I am sooo happy that it is finally over and that I can move on with everyday life! 4 houses in 2 days isn't bad but when 2 houses are in Louisville, KY and the other 2 are in Missouri and there's a 5 hour drive one way involved, it's exhausting! On Wed night we drove to Louisville, got there around 11:30pm to surprise Chris' mom *she was under the assumption that we werent making it to Christmas in Kentucky*, and boy was she surprised! She sqeeled in delight! :)
Thursday morning we woke up to eggs, bacon, and pancakes and TONS of presents in the middle of the floor. This year we made a deal with Chris' parents - no exchanging of presents to the adults because his parents are paying for our 8 bedroom, 4 bathroom house in Orlando for our Family Disney Trip in May/June. Which only meant that all those presents were for Mister Monster! He got about 10 new toys and 2 new outfits - what a great Christmas!
(Chris' Mom & Dad's Table FULL of presents for the kids!)
On a very happy note! My littles cousin had her first baby over the Holiday! Malichi Edward was born on December 24th at 5:02pm! Weighing in at 4lbs, 13 ounces (he was 7 weeks early) but both mom and baby are healthy and doing well!
(Malichi Edward just hours after being born - isn't he just a doll?!)
Hope you and your family had a Very Merry Christmas!! I wish many great things in 2010 for each and everyone of you!
Ps. Now I want to have another baby!! Mine's 5 years old now and I want a little one again! Do you guys ever go through this?
