Lazy Days of Winter


Here are Hubby's Great Grand kids from his oldest daughter (minus two babies and plus Grandson in law Matt) the day of their Christmas party when was hubby was dubbed, "The Crazy Guy!" All I have to say about that is, you have no idea how crazy!

We had a wonderful Christmas. It started snowing Christmas Eve, snowed 12" by Noon Christmas Day, stopped snowing long enough for my children to arrive and continued on after that from early afternoon until long after I went to bed.

Here is Cole putting together the only toy he got. Sometimes it's hard to pretend you're a grown up!

Here is Madie showing off her new DC's (shoes). You can't see them because she had already packed everything up in anticipation of going to see her boyfriend.


And here is Alex with the make your own John Deere Bear that Madie gave him. You can't tell from his face, but he really was excited about it.

Lucky for me I didn't have to get up and drive on those snowy roads on Friday. But, my oldest child decided he HAD to drive to Park City, Christmas night, to see a "girl". I did not sleep until he called to say, after over an hour, that he had made it down the canyon. If I had been closer to him I would have hugged him and cried and then knocked him upside the head!

So, Friday morning I slept in and had the house all to myself because my hubby had to work. I actually showered, made the bed and ate. After that I laid on the couch watching "Mama Mia!" TWICE. It was heavenly.

Four days off from work. It was so nice and I know I could get used to staying home, if I was rich that is!

In other pressing news, I finished "Two From Galilee", loved it, again! I watched the Jazz win one game and lose another in double overtime without my precious Paul Milsap who is hurt. (I'm betting they are going to call me any day to help nurse him back to health!) Saw the parentals...I know someday my mother is going to be like the crazy aunt in Christmas Vacation bearing "interesting" gifts. But my mom will have her dog wrapped up and covered in Fruit Cake. My siblings and their spouses know this is true!

Glad you had a good Christmas, but take it from me, it gets a little boring to do nothing all day long. ;)

Merry Christmas Marrdy! Your little family so not so little anymore! Good job, girlfriend!!

I love that you watched Mamma Mia twice in a row. Justin is a big Abba fan and he was amazed at how they put all the songs together like that (yes, I love my husband, he was the one who actually picked Mamma Mia for us to watch).
Yeah, I would have been scared too if my son had driven up and down the canyon on Christmas- the roads were horrifying! But I'm glad all is well and you guys had a nice Christmas!

So glad you had a good Christmas! All that family is hard to keep up with :) We didn't go anywhere on Christmas with all that snow either - and our sled hill was 50-feet, not 50" of snow :)

Adiel-If we were both unemployed we could hang out together...but I'd still need to be rich.
Janice-I can't get into your blog and I am so sad...if I can take a peak my email is drammac@yahoo.com.
Amy-My brain must not be working correctly. I knew you said it was a 50' hill not 50" of snow even as I typed my reply. Silly!

All I can say is I wish it would just stop snowing, already! Looks like you and yours had the best of all Christmases. Except for an abysmal ending to a horrific Packers season, we did, too. My final Packers Post tomorrow!

Lots o' fun going on here...hope you had the Merriest of Christmases, and the Happiest of New Years. Here's hoping 2009 is everything you want it to be, and more. BTW, I've got 2 other things on my mind today. First off, don't forget Sx3 tomorrow...it's a stitch! And I've got a pretty good chance of snagging a superior blog award...thanking you in advance for your support!

Sounds like a great Christmas.

I can't quite imagine having quite that many children and grandchildren (I only have one son so far), but it must be a ton of fun.
