Christmas Recap

Another wonderful Christmas surrounded by the one's I love. We've just now settled down for the first night in over a week. We spent most of the week in Jacksonville @ my moms! What can I say it's one of my favorite places . . . especially during Christmas time :) Wednesday Todd & I went to buy a new F150 Lariat 4x4. Luckily it took 4 hours and we didn't get all the paperwork signed, because come Thursday afternoon Toddy Boy had changed his mind about the new addition. So we drove the truck back said {goodbye} and decided maybe buying a $40,000 truck wasn't the smartest idea. What a husband I have. {Always looking out for us} Wednesday night we had a family dinner at my Aunt Cherrie's full of laughter, BBQ, & trying to get rid of our unwanted items for the white elephant gift exchange {next year everyone is going to get a gift that I no longer want out of my house. Seriously, it was the funniest thing ever!}
Friday was a relaxing day at home with my mom doing what I love the most! Cookin' & cleanting' {hopefully you've all watched Diary of a Mad Black Woman and understand that slang!} Our Christmas Eve is spent at my mother's house with all the siblings, niece's & nephews, opening all of our presents and eating lovely food!! Each year we draw a siblings name and write a poem either about the person or the gift you're giving to the person. This year we also decided to write a poem for our parents! Let's just say lots of tears and {happy} parents! :)

My Boppa {name sake}, Baby, & Mrs. Edythe
Sis & Mom - - Love them :)

She loves her treats!! :)

After breakfast Christmas morning we packed the car up and headed west! {Madison Bound}. We had Christmas dinner at Todd's sisters house. More YUMMY food and fun times with everyone {especially the boys!!} Zachary got a wii and we spent a good part of the night playing Mario! {One of my favorite past-times}

Mrs. Libby and the Boys!!!
We were so blessed in 2010, and continue to be thankful for all we have and the life we are able to live! God has blessed us tremendously, and we are eager to see what 2011 has in store for us! We are ringing in the New Year in Savannah with some special friends. Todd & I have never been before so we are excited to explore the city and enjoy another vacation prior to parenthood, just us. {NO NO, we are not expecting, but I know vacations will not be the same with babies in tow - - so we are going to enjoy all the ones we get in before!!} Everyone be safe and have a wonderful time bringing in the New Year 2011!! :)
