I don't even know where to start with reviewing the end of 2009. Work has been nuts. The kids have been even crazier ;o).
I remember Christmas at my Memaw's was wonderful. We were all together and so glad to be! We played MadGab. That game is always a great memory.
I had to work this year up until Christmas Eve, which was a first for me. I have always either been in school and on break for a couple of weeks or at my old job we would close down for a couple of weeks during Christmas and New Year's. But not this state job! So the holidays have felt a little different for me this year.
I took Abi and KayKay to see Alvin and the Chipmunks the day before Christmas Eve. They enjoyed it. I think Makayla got a little bored (as did I). But it was nice to get to go. I let them pick where we were going to eat and they picked IHOP. They had crazy pancakes and I had blueberry pancakes, eggs, hashbrowns, and sausage (which they got half of). And some warm hot chocolate. It was pouring down rain. We had a good time though.
And to include Olivia in this story, she was super hacked that I left her at home with daddy. So he had to pacify her with pop pop (popcorn) and M&M's. She is something else these days.
We also celebrated Christmas with our good friends from Arkadelphia. We love those ladies!
