Seeing that I haven’t posted anything personal in awhile, I thought I’d share with you all some pictures from our wonderful holiday!
This year, for some reason, felt very different than other Christmas’ in the past. This holiday felt like it was all about family. It could be because it’s been such an incredibly busy year that we haven’t seen each other as much as usual. It could also be that we’re all continuously growing older, and “bigger”, and busier. There was so much to catch up on, so many great people to visit with, and…so much food to eat! We actually had my dad’s side of the family over Christmas night for a change. Traditionally, Christmas is at grandma’s (which I love, too!), but this year, we decided to spend it here in Sulphur at our house instead. It was so nice to finally break out all my nice wedding gifts & use them! (I quickly learned a few pieces were made of silver & that silver cannot stay wet for a long period of time!)
We got a dishwasher from my parents from Christmas, which I was sooo happy about! Adam said part of my Christmas present was the installation of the new dishwasher. 😛 He also had a great Christmas…he received a Nintendo Wii! Now, he DID get it pre-Christmas, but that was what he wanted, so he’s been addicted to that thing for the past three weeks. My brother also has one, so they’ve been having some great brother-in-law bonding time. I also have to say that the Wii is one of THE coolest gaming systems I’ve ever seen! Grant it, Adam & I aren’t very big “gamers”, but that thing is awesome! He got a truck game, “Excite Truck”, from my brother for it & it’s so cool because you actually steer the trucks by rotating the controller left & right!
He also got “Guitar Hero II” from his parents (along with a new yard blower-yeah!) and we really didn’t have a clue what that was. It’s an awesome game for Playstation 2 that has had Adam’s attention since he opened the box. It’s a great game with awesome music that I can actually “stand” to hear for the 5 or so hours straight he’s been playing it lately!
