I suck at titles


So how was everyone's Christmas (if that is what you celebrate)? Mine was AWESOME! I learned that I am truly spoiled by my mister. I thought I got him great loot but compared to what he got me I was put to shame. I was happy to get to spend time with my family and the mister's family and loved the time off from work. I failed to get any pictures on Christmas day or eve but I can leave you with some of the Lil' Pumpkin.

I thought I was doing good on my Christmas gifts until this week. I have a Christmas party tonight and I have not finished crafting presents for tonight!!! I have to rush home from work and get to crocheting to finish the presents before the party at 6. After that I have only one more present before Christmas day to craft. Sorry I haven't been here much I have been in my sewing room working up a storm! I have pictures of my crafts after the big day...Spoilers

Hey guys sorry for being MIA for almost a week but I have looked like this:

Yes I have gotten the dreaded yearly cold!!! Every SINGLE year I get a cold once and it is usually in the winter/Finals time. Luck for me this is the first in 4 years that I did not have finals while fighting a cold. And for those of you who are/did handle that I applaud you! (because that shizz it HARD)

Anywhoo I am better now! And before I was fully sick during the weekend I got to see my little pumpkin in her Christmas play at school and it was SUPER cute!! She was an elf building toys and singing. I did not bring my camera(I left it on the charger )  But she was super cute and my dad recorded it so when I go watch it anytime. After that it was birthday dinner YAY! We all went to Robert's Steakhouse & Meat Market which seriously has the best steak EVER!!! The meat is such good quality and we go there so much all the waitstaff knows who Blake is. Granted they always see her with different adults so they usually don't know who our parents are but they know who Blake is. But ya after that dinner is when The Mister and I took a nose dive down the sick road! All is well now I even have sparkly nails to spark up my mood since i have been so sleepy lately! 

Can you tell I pop mu knuckles by this picture? Older people always say that they can tell when they see my hands. I cannot help it, it feels so good to pop them then my hands are sore or tired!

Hope y'all stay healthy! What do y'all do to get out of the slump after being sick?

Trimming the Tree and Large Families

This weekend was HECTIC I do not have a better way to explain it. I had 2 sets of family pictures taken.

 Sat at 10 we had family pictures with my Dad, Step-mom and that side of the family siblings. Everything went off with out a hitch! The pictures look great, we played at the park then went to my Dad's for shrimp etouffee and tree decorating.
See that cluster in the last picture? Ya that was little miss's area, that is where she put all the decorations. After some YUMMY food The Mister and I headed out for game night at the step-dad's house... By the way have y'all played The Logo Game before? I just got it for a birthday present and I love it!!! Anyhoo we finally walked across the street to go to bed around 12 or 1 which is late for old fogies like us.

Sunday I wake up and go to my Granny's for my birthday lunch at noon (the whole family goes every Sunday but the Sunday before your birthday is cake day) ready for pictures and all is good! Pictures are at 3 with all the grand-kids and if you are counting it is 5 just for my step-dad's side, 6 from my Uncle Don and 3 from my Aunt Tracy...13 in all not counting parents (because they were not in the pictures, but were present) we had ages ranging from 9 months to 28 in the pictures! Talk about CRAZY! Well by 2:30 on our way to the photographers house we find out 2 cannot make it, and 3 of the people there work shift work and the freak occurrence of having them all off at the same time will not happen again until AFTER Christmas! So we are all uber stressed out by now, oh did I mention the rain too? Yes our plan for outdoor pictures squashed because of rain! Well pictures were taken minus 2. Praise the photoshop gods for being created and helping us out! the missing 2 are being photoshopped in later just in time to be framed and wrapped for Christmas time.

I am SOOO glad that I am finished with working out the family picture situation. While we were there some Aunts were saying we should get a full family picture with the grandparents, parents, kids, and grandkids!!! Ya I decided to NOT help head up that party. I am tapped out. Well I hope y'all had a good weekend.


Does your family have trouble getting together? How easy would it be to have 3-4 generations photo taken for your family?
