The rest of christmas (very long)

29 Dec

Here is the rest of the week in mostly pictures.

Wed morning the plumber came he said that it would only take 1 hour. Well 3 hours later He finally finished. It was crazy. He said that the worst thing to put down the disposal is: Egg shells, potato peelings, pasta, rice, grease. Well duh. The people who lived in the house before us put a lot of grease down the drain. He said the clog was over 10 feet long. Gross!

While he was still there my mom and I made waffles. Every time he would leave the kitchen for a min we would grab another ingredient. It was pretty comical. Well it is fixed and we don’t have to wory abou that any more.

Mickie colored my mom’s and my hair. I we both were going for darker, but that is what we picked. next time I will go even darker…

Christmas eve we decided to get our dollar gifts, Christmas cereals, and eat out. Let me tell you that I felt the pressure. We got to the dollar store 20 min before they were closing. We picked out gifts pretty fast.


Then we showed up to walmart to get cereal. They were closing in 30 min. The line was soooo looong. We made that deadline and then it was trying to find a place to eat. Luckily we found Bajio’s and they were open for another 20 min. I am surprised we were able to do everything we wanted. We lucked out. I guess Christmas eve is not the time do do all that kind of stuff.

We looked at some christmas lights a we drove home and then the kids opened chirstmas pj’s.


All she wants to do is step on the wrapping paper. It made wrapping gifts pretty tough for Will and Matt 😉


She doesn’t quite open gifts yet. I am surprised that we even got a picture like this…


Here are the pj’s… So cool. Transformers and Iron man.


Sierra on the other hand HATES her pj’s. We found out that she hates feet on her pj’s. She keep trying to rip off the feet. Haha. Silly girl.


Christmas morning we all sat around and read Luke 2…


Then we ate breakfast…


Looked at our Christmas boots…


Then Santa’s helper passed out presents. Usually it is Colton’s job to pass out the gifts. Jason took his place this year.


Sierra and Jason received a wagon. They love to sit in it. I have not had to many fights about it. Once they figured out it has 2 seats…


 Christmas morning everyone went sledding. They were the only ones out. Go figure.


Jason’s new thing is to just cover his eyes with the beanie instead of covering his eyes. Silly kid!


We then hung out Christmas and then tried to go bowling. They were closed so we went over to Holly’s and hung out. Played a game or two and then we snuk over to Will’s parents place. We didn’t stay long, but we just had to stop in and say hi.

Friday we went shopping, out to lunch, watched bed time stories, and went to boondocks. We had a great time. We stayed there way to late. Will was having so much fun. I figured that it was ok to keep the kids up. It is not often that Will gets to play until his hearts content. They played laser tag for almost 3 hours straight. Fun stuff.

Saturday we were able to spend the day with Will’s family.

We were able to also go back to our place and play the Wii for a bit. Oh man am I a spaz at this game.


All in all we had a great week.

    That was fun and not too long at all! You look like you have Mariah’s Boogie Super Star too 🙂 I like the hair color. Mickie did a great job. Less than 30 minutes left at each of the places you hit on Christmas eve? That sounds like the guys got what they asked for!!!

    Your hair color looks great, very pretty. Looks like your entire family had a wonderful Christmas. So funny about Sierra not liking the footed jammies. James didn’t like them last year, but this year he’s okay wearing them. Kids are funny.
