New Laptop!

Joseph came home with 2 new laptops today... and one was for me! I'm super excited about it!

So these post will be a little out of order. Oh, well...

Christmas was splendid! We woke up at 6:30. I nursed Colleen while AJ watched Curious George until Joseph got things together (put the bike out). When AJ FINALLY noticed the bike and the presents she got really excited. Santa was very good to her. And me. I got a Shark steam mop, spring form pans (can't wait to make cheesecake!), and the Zumba Wii game will be acquired whenever we can find it. Santa finally brought our family a dual screen DVD player for the car, too. It will definitely make those trips to VA much easier. Breakfast was provided by Waffle House carry out.
We visited Joseph's family Christmas Eve and day. We ate so much great food! The desserts were ridiculous! I must brag, after gaining about 5 pounds last year (to my credit, I was newly pregnant), I haven't gained a single pound this year! It's shocking considering all the coconut cake I've eaten!
Next weekend we head to VA to visit my family. I can't wait! They haven't seen Colleen since she was born. Plus, we get to hold on to Christmas a little while longer...

Christmas pictures to follow.


Rock Hill actually saw snow today! A steady falling of the white stuff came down over the night and covered the ground. Four or five inches accumulated making the most picturesque landscape. After a little after-Christmas-shopping, the snow hadn't melted too much so AJ could still get in some good playtime. While I made chili beans and cornbread, Joseph obliged Little Bug with snow angels and a drag around the yard in a big plastic toy tub from the back porch. She had a ball! As previously mentioned, I'm a slacker, so no pictures were taken... maybe, if there is any snow left, I'll take some pictures tomorrow.

I'm a slacker...

Seriously. We put the Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving and just got it decorated last week. The decoration boxes are still in the living room. Half the outside Christmas lights are up; Joseph finally stopped saying "I'm gonna finish the lights tonight" about two days ago (there's really no point in finishing them now...). The Christmas cards are still hanging out in the diaper bag, waiting for stamps. They'll probably be hand delivered on Christmas Eve, if they're ever delivered. I just hung the stockings up tonight. I haven't really started wrapping presents. I'm waiting until Christmas Eve to get the in-laws' gift. I'm not buying for my family until next week. The really sad thing is, I can't blame it on having a 3 month old baby to take care of. She's such a good baby; she let's me do what I need to do between nursing. AJ goes to Grandmomma's house several times a week, which gives me plenty of time to do things. I guess it's just me. I've grown lackadaisical. I LOVE Christmas, but this year I just can't get into it like I usually do. Hopefully I'll wake up Christmas morning full of the Christmas spirit. Of course, then it will be almost over. Oh well, there's always next year...
