Our Christmas 2010

We had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas this year.  On Christmas Eve I made homemade pizzas and wings for supper and got the boys ready in their Christmas jammies.  Except of course Aidan, he's way too cool for that ;)

and we baked cookies to leave for Santa...

On Christmas morning, we all woke up and the boys were ready to see what Santa had brought them and open their gifts.

Cole's Santa gift was a Weeble's Playset and he LOVED it!  He really likes the little weeble wobble people :)  That toy has now turned into Ryan's favorite too!  Haha!

Santa brought Ryan a Thomas the Train set just like he had asked him for.  He was pretty excited about that!

Deet kinda likes it too ;)

Ryan loved his Transformers...

Cole loved Ryan's Transformers too!

Cooper was in the middle of it all!

Aidan and his beloved baseball necklace!

Cole in his precious Christmas outfit that Misti got him for his birthday!  LOVE it!

He loves his Toy Story truck!

Ryan likes to push Cole on it...so cute!  They are getting so big :(

We spent Christmas Day at our house.  Roy's family and my mom all came over.  My mom and I cooked everything and spent most of the day in the kitchen!  Man I was worn out that night!  We had a great day and everyone seemed to really enjoy the food, sweets, and company. 

I hope y'all had a blessed Christmas as well!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Yesterday Roy and I, with the little boys, met up with Nikki, Gerald, and Maddox in College Station for dinner.  We ate at yummy Texas Roadhouse and then went to the mall to let the boys take their pictures with Santa. 

 Maddox loved Santa and took the cutest picture! 

Ryan loved Santa too and was so excited to see him and tell him what he was wanting for Christmas!  Cole, on the other hand...not so much.  He was NOT a Santa-fan :(  I knew he wouldn't like Santa - he doesn't like any strangers!  HA!  This is their picture with Santa - I LOVE everything about it!!!

I hope you each have a wonderful Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!!

You will have joy and gladness and many will rejoice at His birth.

One Down

My first semester back at school is done.  When I quit my job back in August and started my first day of classes, I thought this was going to be one long semester. 

But, to my surprise, it actually went by very fast!  It was a HUGE adjustment and took some getting used to, but I made it thru!  WHEW!  I am so relieved to have that behind me and am looking forward to the new year to start another semester. 

I am going to enjoy these next 4 weeks off with my boys and really try and get my house back in order!  HA!  It has suffered a bit ~ especially the last 2 weeks of school with papers and finals...eek...

I didn't realize how time consuming school would actually be, especially while still having a husband and 3 kids to take care of.  This first semester was definitely a learning experience and I hope I can do even better in the Spring :)

Now I gotta go pick up something off the floor, or fold laundry, or do dishes, ... ;)
