Holidays 2011: Post 1

Holy moly!

I can definitely tell it has been awhile since I have written a blog post. It took me 10 minutes to come up with this sentence! Does that ever happen to you? You write a sentence, erase it, write another one and erase it, then decide to go back to your original sentence. Then erase it again. Good thing I'm not on a tight schedule to get something written! Geez!

Welp, the reason I'm having trouble writing/typing/thinking is because we went home to Texas for two weeks. We live in the country where fast internet service is scarce, so I decided not to blog until we returned. We were so happy to be able to spend Christmas with our families. It was awesome and much needed!

In order for me not to strain my brain too much more, I will let the pictures do the talking. Oh, I am going to break up our "vacation" into several posts so that it doesn't take an hour to look through. I take too many pictures. I am obsessed with them.

You will see what I mean..

This is Kamdon, AKA the cutest baby in the world.  We were SO glad to see him and his wonderful mommy and daddy over our break!

Can you tell how excited he was about the two shirts we got him? Don't you know boys love clothes! : )
I can't wait to see him in the plaid one!

Favorite! Such a beautiful mom and handsome son! Love y'all!!

Garrett and I wanted to steal him!

Ok, now that the cutest baby award has been handed out, here are a couple more pictures that belong to the same evening...

This one is a little blurry. I took it with my iPhone.
It's my dad wrapping a gift to my father in law, Brett. Just wait until you see the wrapping..

He used a paper bag, address labels that came in the mail, and a ribbon from a gift that my mom had gotten.
Brett calls my dad "Big Ass" because he is tall so dad calls Brett "Little Ass", well...because he isn't tall.

Be sure to read the whole thing. It's hilarious.

Brett loved it.

This was the face he made when he saw what was inside. Oh I can't help but laugh at this! I think he liked it!

Dad made it extra hard to get into by wrapping thick tape all around the package. Brett's wiping the sweat off of his forehead in this one. Gotta work for your gifts around here!

As you can see, we had a pretty fun break, and this is only the first post! We can't wait to share the rest of our holiday fun with you soon!

I hope you all had a wonderful 2011 holiday season as well!!
