I seems like forever since I have been on here and I have missed getting news on my Company Girl friends!
I'm sure you all can relate when I say the holidays were crazy! I really had big ideas of a very serene, calm time...but that didn't happen. It was a great time, however. We had a great Christmas weekend that I would totally show you, except Tigerfan hasn't put the pictures on the computer yet and I haven't a clue how to do it! Tigerfan's sister came Christmas evening and so we got to spend several days with her and her family. My nephew spent most of the time at our house with the boys and Dancer spent most of the time at Nana's with my niece. She LOVED some much desired girl time! We also had our newly "adopted oldest son" visiting. He is actually my SIL's nephew and went to DisneyWorld with us a few weeks ago. He is a 22 year old college student and, you can imagine, my boys LOVED him. Since he was on our meal cards, etc. we told him we were adopting him which totally works out for us since he will graduate from college in a year and the majority of financial responsibility and raising has been done! :) Really, he is a great guy and a great example for our boys and we love having him around!
My SIL and her family left Wednesday morning...and my brother and his family came Wednesday afternoon. They stayed until Saturday afternoon and we had a blast with them. They have two boys (10 and 7) who are rambunctious, crazy, and totally adorable. We mostly just stayed around the house while they visited because the weather was AWFUL! But the visit was fun. We got to celebrate Tigercub's third birthday. Wow, three years old, the time has gone so fast! I would love to show you pictures...they are on the camera (sigh!). Between Christmas and birthday...we now have pretty much every Toy Story item known to man! Including, but not limited to, the cutest pair of light up cowboy boots complete with Andy's name carved into the bottom!
Anyway, between Christmas, birthdays, new years, family visits, and starting back to school there just hasn't been a lot of blogging time...maybe soon. I have done great, so far, on my small things and hope to keep that up. I have also spent an embarrassing amount of time playing with one of Dancer's Christmas presents. Yes, this is confession time. She got a DS game called Style Savvy. I don't care much about most video games, but on this one, you open a boutique, choose clothes for your customers, buy new inventory, etc. She gets bored on it after about 5 minutes...but I love it. How pathetic is that? Every time I have 5 minutes of down time...I offer to "run" her boutique for her...and people, I am good! Really good! I think it is my way of releasing my inner fashionista!
Anyway, I look forward to this week's visit! For now...I have a troop of hungry children awaiting breakfast so I must rush off! Have a blessed weekend and be sure to check out Home Sanctuary for more Coffee Talk.
