I am pretty sure it was a first and thanks to my mom and Adam I had plenty of help taking everything down, cleaning, and packing it all back up!... okay, almost all of it!
Monday, December 27th:
Adam went back to work and my mom headed home, too. It was sad, but thank goodness Lala made me a big batch of her fudge before she left... trust me it helped. Things we quite and I could feel everything calming down.
It was my parents 38th wedding anniversary which was pretty remarkable if you ask me!
Ah, happy mail! My sweet friend Erin sent us the best 'post Christmas' care package, which quickly snapped up back into excitement. She made both kids the most incredible scarfs and sent a bunch of fun gingerbread men stuff. And I got some scrappin' stuff... more on that later!!
We also got our last Christmas card... and I just can't seem to take any of them down!
Jolene came to town for a sleep over. She arrived in time for what the neighborhood has coined 'the parade' It happens between 4:30 and 5:30 every night. All the kids come out.
Bicycles, jeeps, scooter, push toys, shopping carts you name it... and ya better drive slow.
After bath, the kids all put on their new robes and cuddled up for a movie!
Family fun playing our new Wii games.... more on that later, too!
My birthday! I have to give a shout out to my wonderful husband who made my day very special with lots of attention and thoughtfulness! He even went shopping with me! After we hunted down a Kindle Fire we went to lunch at one of my favorite places, Chuys! Where I had plenty of chips and jalapeno ranch dip! Not to mention a frozen birthday beverage with salt!
After a nice nap, we had my mini party complete with balloons, cake, more presents, and the cutest rendition of 'Happy Birthday'
Then we headed outside to bring in the new year with our neighbors!
The fire crackers and roasted marshmallows reminded me of my childhood... ummm, the cops coming by reminded me of my college days... lol,
And that is it... that is how we do December at The Fey House!
