December 13th - We had our 7th annual Christmas party with our college friends. It was at our house this year, and I'd say it was a success! My house looked gorgeous, all the food turned out great and we had a fantastic time! I have tons of pictures that I promise to post this week.
December 14th - Thomas (a friend from college who now lives is LA) had to leave :( It was so great having him here for a few days! We did a big group lunch as a farewell. After lunch, Casey and I hit up a toy shop to try and get a few more neices and nephews taken care of.
December 15th - Defensive driving. Pity me. I deserve it.
December 16th - Okay, well I have no excuse for not blogging (or at least reading your blogs) on the 16th. It was cold and snowing (!!! snow!! in Texas!!) and so I spent the entire day curled up in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot tea and a book. I finished American Wife by Curtis Sittenfield and it was so so good! You should all pick up this book!
December 17th - Megan (neice age 4) had her Christmas show in the morning so I drove up to McKinney to see her. After her show, I did some shopping and had lunch with my BFF from high school. It was great catching up!
December 18th - Ryan (nephew age 2) had his Christmas show in the morning, so I was back in McKinney. After the show, my Mom and I went through photos to make some choices for the family calendar.
December 19th - McKinley (neice age 4) had her Christmas show in the morning so I drove down to Midlothian to see her. After the show, my Mom and I went to Northpark. She hadn't realized there was a difference between abercrombie and abercrombie and fitch and had bought gifts at the wrong one. Oops!
December 20th - Christmas errands with my husband in the morning and then I helped my mom babysit my sisters kids in the evening. She wanted to take them to the Trains at Northpark - but thats a big undertaking for one woman so I went with her. I had to hold Ryan through the whole exhibit because he couldn't see over the rails, but the joy of a two year old surrounded by trains (one that looked like Thomas!) was worth it!
December 21st - Casey and I went our in search of our Christmas pajamas to wear on Christmas morning. I couldn't believe the number of places that were sold out (or at least sold out of our sizes!) It was crazy!
So there you have it - my last few days in a nutshell!
