Guys, THANK YOU so much for all the prayers and well wishes for me on my last post!!!!

You have no idea how much it meant to me.  I wish I could email every single one of you back to say thank you, but I’m afraid I won’t have the time.  So I am praying that you see this post and know how much it meant to me!

I have had a head cold since Saturday night that has been a doo-sey.  {I have no idea how to spell that word.}  Smile

I’m still not feeling 100%, but I think I am on the mend.

I have pretty much shut my computer down for the past week.  That is a record for me for sure!  But when your head is poundin, the last thing you want to do is stare at a computer screen, ya know?

Unfortunately, because I was under the weather, I didn’t take a lot of pictures the past few days either.  But I did get a few on Christmas Eve, at Dad and Janet’s, that I wanted to share with you.

Here is Eli patiently waiting to open his gift…

Jonathan was eager to open his presents too…

Luke was checking out his new dwarf frog that he got from his cousin, Drew.

With this new addition, we now have “a gecko, a frog, a turtle, and a dog.”

Don’t you think we could make a country song out of that?

I realized that I haven’t shared a picture of our dog, Champ, in a while, so here he is…

Adam got a new basketball…

Jonathan got a new stool to sit on and play his guitar…

Dad and Janet got so much JOY out of seeing the grandkids open their presents…

I really can never say enough about how much of a blessing Janet has been to our family!  She loves us all so much, and I know that my mom would be so happy to see how she takes care of us, especially Dad.  God is so good.

 

Here is my delicious great nephew, Colt.  He throws his hands in the air, and we all say, “Yay, God!” after we pray.  He had a cute Christmas outfit on at the beginning of the night, but he loves walking around in his diaper best.  Smile

Christmas morning, the boys sat on the couch and opened the little presents that had bought for each other.  They were soooo cute.  It was my favorite part of Christmas morning.

After the opened their gifts from each other, they tore into their gifts from Santa.

Jonathan got an new electric guitar and amp, Luke got a new digital video camera to use for his youtube channel on Leopard Geckos  Smile, Adam got an electric scooter, and Eli got a LeapPad.

It was a great Christmas.

 

 

That evening, we went to my sister’s house to eat.

Here’s Janet and my niece, Kinsey, talking about life…

Chris, my nephew-in-law, is a guitar player too, so he and Jonathan enjoyed playing some songs together…

Cyndi took a group picture of us and posted it on facebook.

I wanted to share the whole clan with you {This is my side of the family.}

And then the real truth…

I am sooo excited because tomorrow, my husband’s side of the family is coming to our house to visit!

His parents and both of his sister’s and their families are coming, and it is going to be a BIG time.  We do not get to see each other as often as we would like because they live in Georgia, and we miss them so much.

It’s going to be some more great family time, and I will take some pictures to share with you soon.

 

We are supposed to get some snow here in KY today, and I can’t wait!

I pray that you have a wonderful holiday week!
