Holidays Wrap-Up

We spent the holidays doing so much fun stuff! We had a wonderfully relaxed christmas with the family. Chucky-Sue and I spent the night at Grandmas Christmas Eve, we woke up  when Jake got home from his overnight shift and had our first tiny family Christmas. Jake got me a gorgeous charm bracelet and the screenplay from "Noises Off"- one of my favorite play-turned-movie. We got Chucky-Sue some grown up cups and plates, a rain stick and a mirror book. The big family Christmas was spread throughout the day- with the the grandkids getting their hullabaloo early, and Jake's siblings doing it later after their own in-law celebrations were over.

We went up to yet another Big Family Christmas in Maryland for Grandma's side of the family. We had fun showing off Chucky-Sue and her new tricks: Crawling, waving bye bye and laughing at EVERYONE. Then, on the way home, we got some of the GREATEST news we've been waiting so long for: Chloe and Superman had a beautiful baby girl placed with them! We got the call on the road, and I  bounced in my seat with joy the entire ride home. It's been so much fun watching them be new parents and I am so excited that Chucky-Sue will have a cousin very close in age.

Then New Year's Eve came and went, I didn't do anything special as Jake was working overnight again, I cuddled with Chucky-Sue until 8ish, put her down and went to bed early myself. I don't normally do resolutions, if I want to change something in my life, I don't wait until new years to start it. I did start some new things around the new year though. Jake let me drive around an empty parking lot for about 45 minutes.(for several reasons: to prove to him that yes, I have driven before and to prove to myself that no, I won't crash immediately when I get behind the wheel.) and I added new items to my Etsy!





So those were our holidays, lots of fun was had,  love was felt and now we're blasting full strength into 2011!

Obligatory photos to make the wall-o-text worth it:
