Fun times at Christmas...






So, we ended up having a great Christmas and I thoroughly enjoyed it (considering my previous skepticism). Emily got TONS of new toys (which was great 'cause she didn't really have any "age appropriate" ones). I got a few good things (Michael's mom gave me some maternity shirts and a candle thing and a new toaster oven). Michael's dad gave all of us kids money, which is always nice to have, right?! :-) All of us kids did couple's game exchanging. We had lots of fun playing games and there was good food, too! I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't made my home-made gravy, though (they use fake stuff or cream of chicken soup, in this case)! Anyway, it was all yummy!!! Some of Em's new toys include a kitchen play thing (which had a million pieces to put together!), a new bicycle that Michael and I *ahem* I mean...Santa got her, a little kids karaoke thing, a fishtank and a couple of fish, puzzles, baby dollls, and more! She LOVED opening presents and was adorable doing it! We didn't get many pictures (we did more filming). Emily also had a blast with Adi, and vice-versa. Over-all it was a great time!
After that (which took place in Sherwood, AR at Rob and Rachel's), Emily and Adi went to OKC with LaLa (Michael's mom). Emily ended up being sick most of the time and I missed her terribly! They left on monday and I couldn't wait past thursday, so that's when Michael and I went (he missed her, too). Michael and I did get some good hubby/wife time in, though. We went out to eat and did some shopping and I got to sleep in THREE days in a row! It was amazing. So, thursday when we got to OKC we were there with LaLa, the girls and grandma Liz (LaReeca's mom) until saturday when Jim and Anna and Luke got there. (Rob and Rachel got there friday, I think.) It had been awhile since we'd seen Anna and Luke, and Anna's b'day was that saturday so we all went out to eat and then came home and had our little Christmas with Anna and Luke and then played games again. Fun, fun! We got back home on monday and it's back to real life again...

On another note, I have a Dr's appt tomorrow. My first one actually with my Dr since I found out I was pregnant. I guess it will just be a hear the heartbeat, measure the tummy deal...but I'm excited about it!

I guess that's it for now. I would put some pics up, but I'll have to figure out how to do that first! Love to all and have a blessed year!!!

(I figured it out.)
