I realize that I have not been posting much at all lately. I am sorry. I have tried, really I have but for some reason pictures have not posted and words have not flowed and well, I guess I was taking a little bloggy vacation. But I am back. For the time being anyway. I start back to school on Thursday and I am NOT looking forward to it at all. It will be a be-yach of a semester. OK, so for your entertainment, here are a few pictures from Christmas. They are not great, I was on a photography holiday as well. Sue me. But you get the general idea.

The first picture above, is after Santa arrived.
Waiting to come down to open presents. They were having fits because we make them wait until we get our coffee made, turn on the lights etc. And we pad a few extra minutes just to make them wiggle. It's fun.

Action shots, not my forte.
Mmmm...Hollister. Love it.
Don't shoot your eye out!(name that movie)

I stayed inside out of firing range when these three chuckle-heads went out to shoot their Red Ryder BB guns.

We spent a lot of time resting..Caitlyn is good at resting. Must be a teenager thing.

And wrestling with cousins.....Brooks and Seth
And looking like a princess....Love you Lucy!
Some of us watched way too much football. Not me because I hate football.
There was lots of giggling going on among some of my nieces. Jessica, Sydney and Mackenzie.
Some of us got a little too wild. Like my SIL Cindy. Kids, don't try this at home.Love ya Cin!
And some of the SIL's were just lovey dovey with one another. Love you Kitty and Patty!
Some little nephews had huge shit eating grins much like Nates..
We played with new toys...
Some of which we had to build first.
Somebody was hitting the spiked eggnog.
Yikes! I need a haircut!
Deep in thought...Mikey, my baby. He is 15 now. sniff sniff....
Happy Birthday Mikey! (we were actually singing to him for his birthday. Not sure why the photographer cut out the cake-we should fire that person).
Oh! There you go. As you can see, I was NOT the photographer.
We spent HOURS Literally putting together stuff. Like this star wars lego set that took like, I don't know, 5 hours? I look fabulous in my pajamas don't I? My butt hurt like you wouldn't believe after spending all that time sitting on a hard wooden bench. Yikes!
A proud moment, the ship has been launched.
We celebrated Mikes birthday as well. Aren't the decorations lovely?
So proud of our handiwork. We surprised mike with a dollar store birthday party. Everything, including his gifts came to a total of $10.00! Are you impressed? I am!

The end.
