What a week!

This week has been a whirlwind of activity! For starters, I have pink eye again! This time in the other eye, and it's not nearly as bad, thank goodness. I've had it for a couple of days, and today my eye looks much better. I'm still slightly aggrevated because I just replaced my mascara, and now I'm going to have to do it again! :( Oh well, I guess I should be glad I have eyes and that I'm not blind! Both of which I am thankful for!

Tuesday we went to Jodi's house for supper, and Mimi and Pop tried to get a picture with the babies for their Christmas card. I think we maybe got a good one...it's just so hard at this age to get them to cooperate, especially at the same time. No, I'm not talking about the grandparents!! :) LOL! I'm talking about the babies. They are both so sweet, but it is nearly impossible to get them to smile at the same time. Then Jodi took a HORRIBLE picture of me, and we started fighting over the camera. Not really fighting, play fighting, we were both laughing and being silly...and then Jodi tossed the camera to Brad. Unfortunately "she throws like a girl" as Brad said and the camera hit the laptop...the camera is now dead. I feel really bad about it, we certainly didn't mean for anyone or thing to get hurt! Ane NO I will not post the picture that we were fighting over! I hope she won't either!

Then on Wednesday, Anthony and I went shopping for Alexa's Christmas present. The child honestly doesn't NEED anything, but what kind of parents would we be if she didn't have something to unwrap? We got her a little kitchen, and I really think she will like it. We also got her some educational books, and Anthony is going to buy her some new shoes too. We saw some friends while we were at Toys R Us, so it was nice to catch up with them for a few minutes. I feel like I never see people anymore, we are always just so busy!

Last night mama and I had our dress rehearsal for our Christmas music. We are singing Sunday night at 6:30 if anyone would like to come! It's sure to be a crowd pleaser! Afterwards we are having the whole family over for soup and chili, which is always super YUMMY!

Then today we are having our Christmas gathering at work...where basically the hospital provides snacks and we get the chance to talk to coworkers, eat, and get paid all at the same time. I think it's a wonderful concept! :) I know it will be fun, but it's tonight that I'm really excited about! Jodi's friend Liz has a cookie exchange every year where she invites people to her house and you bring a plate of your favorite cookies. Jodi has invited Alexa and me to go with them this year. The cool part is that she has a Santa at her house so your kids can have their picture made with him!! I am really looking forward to it, and hopefully Alexa will like Santa! I told Jodi we will probably have to give both of them a bunch of cookies so they will be in a good mood! :) Hopefully I will have some cute pictures to post tomorrow.

Finally, I HOPE we are going to scrap tomorrow! I have been going through withdrawals for the lack of scrapping in my life right now. There just doesn't seem like enough time to do it all! Jodi and I have both been experimenting with the cricut software, and we can't wait to get the real thing instead of the trial version. We are going to have some KILLER layouts when it's all said and done! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Here are a couple of pictures from Jodi's on Tuesday. Alexa had the best time playing with the metal bowl and wooden spoons! Here she is on the caterpillar with the spoons...she thought it was great fun! She still thought all of the spoons should be hers. Even when we got out 2 more spoons for Walker she wanted those too. Still working on sharing!

Then in this picture Mimi was holding her and being the drama queen that she is, she threw her head back towards Pop and Walker to see what they were doing. In the previous picture Walker had given her a kiss on the head. They were both really sweet all night! When we got there Walker was asleep and when he woke up Mimi was in the den with both of them and Alexa kept walking over to them and giving Walker a hug. Too cute!! :)

I can't even tell you how special Chris and Linds are to Steph and me. I know that Walker and Alexa will ALWAYS love each other dearly! Nothing beats growing up close to your cousins!

Come on over, Jackie, there's plenty of soup and chili for everyone!! Aren't our grandbabies wonderful! We'll have to get Alexa, Walker and Perrin together for some playtime in the near future. Merry Christmas to all!
