Happy New Year

Happy New Year! We can't believe it's already 2008. Here are a few pictures of our Christmas this year. Our last day of school was December 19, so we had a few days to shop and bake before the big day. We had our sitters come on Thursday afternoon and Andy and I took off to Christmas shop--we had so much fun!
Then on Christmas Eve we went to church at First Baptist Aledo with Uncle Rick and Aunt Mindy and their crew, followed by dinner at their house (Joe T's!) and the best part...a train ride around the neighborhood on Uncle Rick's land train! We were COLD but the boys loved it. Then we went home and the boys chose to open a gift from Uncle Joey: helicopters!
On Christmas morning Santa came and I was the first one up! We got video of the boys seeing their toys and we ate breakfast casserole (a Nana tradition) and unwrapped gifts. Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Christmas--we love you!
On the 26th I turned 27 and Andy took me out shopping and to a nice dinner with friends.
Then on Friday we went to Austin to visit Uncle Matt and Aunt Nina! We played board games, Andy played nine holes of golf, I got to shop (again!), and the boys got to play with their cousins, so everyone had a great time!
Then back home on Sunday (we stopped at the Czech stop in West, Texas where we stacked on kolaches).
On Monday (New Year's Eve) we went to our friends' house.
On Tuesday we relaxed at home and Andy went back to work on Wednesday.
Last night we exchanged gifts with Aunt Bertie at Carrabas. We gave Aunt Bertie the best gift of all...six lovely visors from a Rough Riders baseball game we attended this summer! =)
Clayton will be six months old on Sunday. He is rolling over and almost sitting by himself (right now he tips over after a while). He laughs all the time, especially at his "bubbas."
The boys and I head back to school on Monday, so we have a few days to rest at home before we are in full swing again.
We wish you a happy and healthy new year!
