I've been busted..

I've been busted. I haven't posted in OVER a month. Sorry. Please forgive me.

What have I been doing with my time? Well, before school was out, we went to band concerts, and even a concert that the first grade put on. That was a lot of fun. Collin did such a great job. Too bad the battery on my camcorder went dead. Bummer.

Our December took an unexpected turn when D's grandfather passed away. We took an unexpected trip to Texas and then to Illinois, then back home again! Phew! Even though the circumstances weren't great, we were able to see family. D's grandfather was 90. He lived such a full life. He was married for 62 years! We'll miss him dearly. He had such a great Christmas though, I'm sure of it!
So, we got home for Christmas, and we've been busy ever since. I've been working over 40 hours a week.

For New Year's Eve, we stayed up to watch the ball drop. Then we had poppers that we popped all around the house and made a mess everywhere. I had to work today, so the boys all had to clean it up today. We had an apple cider toast, and went to bed.

So, here's the pics I know you've been waiting for...

Here's crazy Shane

We went to Wendy's house for Christmas Day. Thank you Wendy, it was great. Santa showed up. Thirteen year olds accept gifts, but they DO NOT sit on his lap. Fathers however, have no problem fixing his hat.

A little closer, but still, NOT sitting on the lap!

This six year old still loves him!

I might be in trouble for this one...

It's a party on the dog's back!

It's a party on the six year old's head!

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year to you and your family. Looks like you had a great time at Wendy's.

Sorry about the loss of your hubby's grandfather. Sounds like he did have a wonderful life.

The boys are getting to me so big. Unbelievable.

Hope we don't have to wait around for a Valentine's post now.

That's a joke. :)
