Christmas 2010

Christmas was kind of low-key this year for me. Brittany, Kasey and Kolbey spent christmas eve and christmas morning with their mom and kim.  I spent christmas eve at my parents house. we ate some yummy food and just spent some quality time together. we didn't do much as my mom is still recovering from her hip surgery and is doing very well.
Christmas morning I slept in, ha! :] the kids weren't going to be at my parents house until 10 or 11, so we cooked up some christmas morning breakfast and watched the parade until they arrived.
So fun to come from a small family and spoil the kids every year, even though they are teenagers now. I love them and i am glad i can get them things that they want for christmas.
i feel very blessed to have such great family and friends!
I hope you all had a great holiday spent with the ones you love.

Later that evening everyone came over to my house where we had a delicious dinner of ham, funeral potatoes and veggies. It was so yummy!  we also played mario kart for the wii because santa brought that to everyone as a family gift. thanks santa, you are the best! :]
