Happy 2009!!!

Here's Moxie in her customary place during Christmas...tucked between the presents under the tree.

The new year has started and it's a fresh start for everyone!! I am ready for everything to get back to a normal schedule though. It seems like I feel that way every year. I get all excited for Christmas, and then after the holiday stress, school vacations, no daycare, etc., I just want our little family to go back to work and school.

We spent Christmas Eve and Day all on our own...just our family of four. This is the first time that's ever was nice and relaxing. We went to see Bedtime Stories at the movies on Christmas Day...along with the entire KC Metro Area. The theatre was packed!!!

Dylan was thrilled with his gift from Santa...a PlayStation Portable. He's mastered several levels of each of his games already. Matt also tries to sneak in a few games of Madden 09 when Dylan isn't looking.

Collin received several new toys from everyone, and one of Dylan's toys from his first Christmas from Mommy and Daddy. He'll never know the difference between a new toy and a used toy...he was more excited about eating the bows.

The week before Christmas we went to dinner with Uncle Darren, Aunt Jenny & Gavin (Matt's godson). Uncle Darren is Dylan's godfather. Unfortunately even though they just live in Shawnee, we only get to see them a couple times a year. But we always seem to catch up quickly!!

Collin and I also visited with my best friend Abby (Collin's godmother) and her little guy, Thad. This was the first time the little guys have gotten to play with each other. They just stared at each other a lot. We'll give them a couple years...then they'll be terrorizing their mothers.

New Year's Eve was spent out at the McCarty residence playing on their new Wii. We left Collin with Grandma and Papa because we knew he wouldn't make it past 7 p.m. Can you believe it? I forgot to take my camera and Jenny didn't even take any pictures either. Probably a good thing as I took my turn at singing to Guitar Hero or Rock Band or whichever one it was. I really need to educate myself on these games.

Dylan celebrated a little too much on New Year's Eve...too many chocolate brownies. He threw up at 2:30 in the morning, and then pretty much slept the whole day. He finally got lively Friday afternoon after Grandma was able to get him to eat some applesauce. He's back to normal today...even went to his first basketball practice this morning with Brady and Kohlton.

Thank you Grandma and Papa for spending the week with us and taking care of the boys while Matt and I worked late, ran errands, and had a dinner date last night. We don't know what we would do without you!! I know you didn't get much sleep, Mother!!
I finally finished reading the 4th book of the Twilight series, and tomorrow, Adrienne and I are going to see the movie. The dads are going to watch football while the little guys "link up" their PSPs to play video games.
Have a good week everyone!

Oh my gosh, I have about 1/4 inch left to go on the 4th book! I just can't seem to find time to get to it!
