Oh, Goodness!

2 weeks, without one little post?! Holy cow, well I do actually have pictures, but they're already on Facebook, so you can go here and here to see some! Yes, I am that lazy. If you're not my friend on Facebook, you might just have to become one to see them. What have we been up to?

Let's see.

School let out on the 18th, I think. Grandma & Papa came for a weekend to hang out. We had a great time. Took them for their first trip to Washington on the Brazos State Park. Great little day trip when the weather is nice. Did I mention that most of it is free, unless you want to take a tour. We have yet to take the tour. Grandma & Papa headed back home to Plano, and I had to kick it into high gear to get all of the Christmas shopping done! Mission accomplished, by the 23rd I think. I do best in the final moments! :) Anyway, we had some great family time, visited with friends, went to church for Christmas Eve, and had a fabulous Christmas morning together here at home. That afternoon, we loaded up the car for a quick trip to Plano. Christmas afternoon/evening was spent with Grandma & Papa, and some to-die-for Prime Rib. Saturday was the main reason for our visit. All of Papa's side of the family was coming to Grandma & Papa's house for a little reunion of sorts. I think the final count was 42! We had a great time meeting some new family members and getting to know some of the older ones that we haven't spent much time with. We had a great time and were glad we could be a part of that! As if, Grandma hadn't had enough fun that day hosting the party, she was up for a little babysitting so Joe and I could go visit friends. I hadn't laughed that hard in a LONG time. We had a few drinks and played Battle of the which case, we discovered we married some girly men...they kicked our butts!!!

That brings us thru this past weekend, and now we are at home and waging a war with our laundry room. If you need me, I'll be buried in there for the next day or so. I know, I know, there are no pictures in this post...however, I feel some blog makeover therapy in my near future, so maybe there will be a new look!

Happy New Year! {Just in case, I don't get a post in before this weekend!}

Stole The Show!

Trey, Trey, Trey. What a ham.

My mom {aka...Mimi}, had mentioned that she was going to take Trey with her and Uncle Cody to the Texas Opry, where Cody's been singing for years & years. Sure thing Mimi! Uncle Cody mentioned to me that he would be singing "Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer"...I thought to myself...hmmm. Trey's favorite song these days. Me, to Trey: "Hey Trey, you might be able to do your dance while Cody's singing...would you want to get up on stage?" Trey responds: "YEA!" Uh oh. He really wants to. Well, you can see by the pictures that he rocked it. He stole the show, and loved every minute of it. I missed it. Boo. So thankful that Mrs. Coxe had her camera to get a few pictures!

Moving on...4 and 1/2 more days of school, and then I have to finish getting ready for the holidays! The tree is up...and decorated. The hard part is over in my opinion! Well, stay tuned and I may put up some pictures of our tree, that is about one inch from hitting the ceiling!

Joe is Back.

We have survived another football season. A great season, if I do say so myself. The boys exceeded everybody's expectations, and did it with class and great sportsmanship. Last night's loss was to a great team, the Stony Point Tigers. They showed up to play, and the stars were all aligned for them. Everything that needed to go right, did. Not so much for the case for our Wildcats tonight. I thought it was going to be a close game with the Wildcats coming out and getting on the scoreboard in the first two minutes of the game. That was the highlight of our night...after that, it was the Stony Point show. Hats off to them, and they may just take it all the way. The loss is a little bittersweet...would have like to witnessed the Cats go all the way, but glad to have Joe back on a normal schedule!

Here's an iphone pic from last night...not the best, but it shows you one of the best thing about Cy Woods. Praying is the thing to do.

This is what they do every time they take the field. Along with pregame and post game. Isn't that the way it should be!?!

Moving on. I keep saying I haven't been bitten by the Christmas bug yet. Our tree isn't up (that's a whole 'nother story), not much shopping done, and decorations still in the attic. I'm hoping some of that changes this evening, but we shall see. I think there are a few factors playing into my mellow mood. First one being the photography...I've been making sure I have everyone's pictures done and orders in that I haven't taken the time to make sure our lives are in order. :) Second, being that we're not used to playing in December! I like that second one though, I can get used to it.

My goal this week is to get ready for Christmas, along with focusing on our family. Taking pictures of Trey and Emery and getting them in the spirit too. My BFF, Ryan, passed along this AWESOME SITE, for those of you with little ones or grandkids. You should see Trey when he watches his video. So stinkin' cute.

I guess if I want to get my tree up, I better get moving. Hope everyone has a great week, and maybe {just maybe} you'll see pictures of my decorations soon.
