So it has been too long. Just hard to find the time to blog these days, especially when Adlee insists on being on the computer when I am. She loves pushing the buttons, turning off wifi, making all caps and basically screwing up whatever she can. Jerred doesn’t usually read the blog, but apparently did the other day and vocalized his disapproval. I told him he was welcome to blog, but he told me he didn’t know how. Seeing as this is the same guy who figured out how to put a brand new screen on a laptop in about an hour I think he could figure out this blogging thing. But such is life.
I am going to have to jump back to Christmas to catch up. Yes, that is right we DID celebrate Christmas!! The first party we had was with our youth group. The first pic is of Adlee with her boyfriend Garrett. The faces are because some just said “Is Garrett your boyfriend?” To which Adlee immediately replied “Yep!” If she detects a question tone in your voice this is always her reply, but the kids were not expecting it.
The house where we always have it is so pretty and always decorated beautifully!
Kali(it’s her house) always likes to take my camera to pose Adlee!
Reindeer Adlee, she’s getting upset because I would not let her take them off her head
Our first Christmas was with my side, minus the New Braunfels crew. Not a ton of pics because Adlee fell asleep, she really was not into the Christmas thing, I think everyone was a little too excited and it freaked her out.
She was wiped out! Next came our Christmas Eve blizzard. My family from New Braunfels had come up the day before and were staying at my parents and Mark’s house. So it was kinda sad that we didn’t get to see them right away. But I did enjoy it being just the 3 of us that day. We had a fun little family day!
That night we got to open one present. Adlee had one for us from Sonshine school and Jerred INSISTED that we save it for Christmas. It was wrapped and everything so it stayed under the tree! We were very excited with her craft. And yes I took this picture, Adlee knows the orange light that comes on the camera means to smile…hilarious!
On Christmas morning we each had our stockings filled by Santa! Here is Adlee with some of her prices!
Sadie LOVED the snow!
That afternoon Mark came and saved us with his 4 wheel drive. We were all able to go to his house for Christmas day. What fun!!
This is my favorite picture. I caught Jerred playing dolls with Abbie and Lydia…Adlee is so lucky!!!
Then we moved on to Weatherford for the England Christmas! This was the only Christmas that Adlee acted interested in. She did a little bit of present opening here.
Adlee has this really funny piece at the front of her hair that if you don’t blow dry right has a mind of it’s own. Well, one night it didn’t get blow dried right and here is the result
4 generations pic with Jerred, Mimi and Great Grandpa!
And there you have it…our Christmas!! We are definitely blessed!
