I'll hit up on those in a few days, but to 2008, you were awesome!
I hope everyone has a Happy New Year and stay safe!
Garrett, Cain, Talon and Lando.
My mom drew my nephew Talon for Christmas. She bought him a puppy. He was so surprised!
Here I am sportin the no makeup look. Heck it was Christmas Morning. My sister Janna had me. She bought me this cute little pig bowl. I loved it. Her husband also made me a cutting board. Very cool.
Me being silly with my new cutting board!
The husband got a subscription to a bird magazine. He loves birds! He was just smitten with his gift. My sister Jenn had him.
This is my brother Joe...He got Razorback stuff...GO HOGS!
This is my sister Janna. She got a purse and a cute bracelet.This is my SIL Carrie...She got a gift card for her trip to New York and also a cutting board. Same BIL made her one also.
This was my sister Jill and she got some ornaments she wanted.
My BIL Kenny also got Hog Stuff...GO HOGS!
My dad got a gift certificate and some of his favorite low carb chocolate.
My mom got a cubs bag (she is a huge fan) and also a book of homemade cards,bookmarks, tags, etc. that my sister made. It was an AWESOME gift...my mom scored big.
This is Jen...she is a big stamper and she got tons of stamps with scriptures on them. She loved it.
My BIL Jeremy received money to buy something he was wanting and also that giant mug. Sort of an inside joke.
My BIL Glen...you can't see him, but he loves to cook so my dad bought him this giant cooking pot.
The husband and I drew two of Janna's step kids, but they couldn't make it to the Christmas gift opening, so they will get our presents in a few days. We got them gift cards, shirts, candy, etc.
Okay,I think I got everyone but the kids. They got various gift from people...Transformers, DVD's, pajamas, clothes, Razorback tshirts (from me and the husband), bow and arrows, and just fun stuff.
My parents remember bought us a cow for Christmas, so I have 50 lbs of meat in my freezer for use all year. I also received a few small trinklets such as new pajamas. My parents bought me silk pajamas and all my sisters cotton. I asked why and her comment was we still have hope. That was her stab at me not having any kids yet. :) Ha!
The husband received a new atlas and I got some sushi dishes and cookbook. Who knows if I can cook with them, but the dishes I received were adorable!
My inlaws got us giftcards and money.
I think we were all set this Christmas!
Now some pictures of the feast!
My mom and BIL. He was cutting the tenderloins from the cow.
Lastly, the Shrimp and Grits! It was so good but so rich!
I hope everyone else had a wonderful Christmas!
Here we are calling the hogs!
Woooooooo. Pig. Sooie!
Have a great birthday!
Tomorrow is the husbands birthday.......More on that tomorrow!
My cards also need to get finished this weekend and I really should start some gift wrapping. Oh and tons of laundry. I have my suitcase still sitting in my floor from Memphis. I know, shame on me. With the OCD husband I know he is dying. He's been a good sport though! I also have my Christmas cards strewn across the dining room table and all the present in our spare bedroom. Seriously, I need to get organized and clean some stuff up. Another thing on my agenda.
I am looking forward to a weekend at home. I haven't had one in a while. It will be nice to enjoy it at home even though I have tons to accomplish this weekend.
For Christmas this year my parents have bought me and all my siblings a cow. Basically they raised a cow for almost a year, then they had him cut up. Sad I know! Oh well, you can't think about things like that. Anyhow, last night I met my mom to discuss the details on who will get what. It is just me and the husband so I told her we didn't need 100 lbs of meat. I think we probably got about 50 though! I have steaks, roasts, ground meat. We will be set on meat for a good part of the year. My mom saved the tenderloins for Christmas! Yum!
I better get going. I have tons to accomplish today. Next week we deliver all the client Christmas Gifts at work! 250+ people! Fun....
