Merry 2nd Day After Christmas Blogger World! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. We had a wonderful Christmas and truly enjoyed spending time with family and friends alike! And Charlotte (kind of) enjoyed her 1st Christmas ... but really couldn't be bothered with gifts or anything like that! Jaden had a GREAT Christmas and helped Charlotte open plenty of gifts. Jason's mom, her boyfriend Herb and sister came up on Wednesday afternoon since MN was set to get plenty of snow - which we did ... they stayed through Saturday and it was a nice new Tradition I think! We enjoyed having them here as well! We had Lasagna, Prime Rib, Bruschetta and salad for dinner and it was delicious!
We ended up getting 14" of snow on top of the 8-10" we already had so Miss Charlotte surely had a WHITE Christmas! It was beautiful to look at and since we had no place to go - Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow ...
Yesterday Jolene, Jeff and the girls came over to exchange gifts after we got back from the mall ... it was nice to see them - never enough time but we will all be together on Thursday for Charlotte's Big 1st Birthday Party! Mickey Mouse themed of course!We are pretty excited and I am bummed all at the same time ... how did the year fly by so fast! Her party is on New Year's Eve this year and then we will have a big New Year's Eve Party afterwards with lots of friends and neighbors! It should be a great time!
Today I took Charlotte outside in her NEW snowsuit from nan and pop - she even got boots ... Jaden took her sliding down the driveway across the street and Charlotte LOVED it ... Big smiles all around! While we were doing that Jason turned her carseat around to face the front *sniff sniff* ... she is so close to walking too it isn't funny - she's taken a step or two but decided falling over was a lot of fun so now she stands up and falls down and laughs -- over and over again! It is funny!
Well I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday ... Happy New Year as well ... my New Year's Resolution ... Blog More - oh and lose 25 pounds of course ... Jason is putting our elipical machine together as I type!!! YIPPIE!
