Getting Back to Normal!

Well we had a great Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mary Claire had a blast opening up gifts from Santa and Laurel seemed to be very excited over the wrapping paper and bags. Mary Claire was still very frightened at the idea of Santa coming to her house and on Christmas morning she informed both Wayne and I that Santa had not brought her any presents but instead the Grinch had brought them to her.

We spent Christmas here in Georgia and then headed to Mississippi the day after. We spent the first f
ew days with the Overstreet family where we played lots of wii and ate lots of food. It was a blast spending some quality time with Wayne's family since it is not very often that he gets to go home.

Next we headed to Mee and Nonie's where Wayne was able to get in some hunting although he and mom both came up empty handed. We rang in the New Year with a bond fire and hot dogs and smores. Mary Claire had a good time but she did not care too much for the fireworks...maybe next year!

We then came home and we were able to spend a couple of days together before Wayne returned to work this morning. It took about three hours to get all the toys put away and organized. Mary Clarie starts back to school tomorrow.

It was a wonderful holiday season but I have to admit that I am so glad to be home and back to normal.

Here a couple of pictures from Christmas. We did not take as many as I would have liked to but we used our video camera instead.

Is that the Rose Petal Cottage!!! Can I come over and play???

Sounds like you had a fantastic holiday. It really is so much more special with our little ones. And I'm glad your families got to share the joy....but I do agree, we're finally getting back to normal and we didn't even go anywhere.

Happy New Year to all!
