Well, Christmas is over and now it is time to look forward to the New Year! This weekend we were in Broaddus to celebrate Christmas with the entire family, well, almost the entire family. There were a lot of people who weren't there, including my father. I think everyone had a good time, though. I know the kids did anyway. We had pinatas for them and goodie bags and took them on a hayride where my brother-in-law told them spooky stories and my cousin and nephew and niece's husband were waiting in the trees to ambush everyone!! It was a lot of fun for most, but the youngest ones spent much of that time wrapped up in a blanket hiding their heads in either my lap or one of the other adults that were on the ride!!!!

Friday night before that we went out in Nacogdoches with some old friends and caught up on one another's lives, then Sunday we all went to church and after lunch I headed back to Houston. I was home for a while alone and was able to get things unpacked and put away. I have some shelves that need hanging so they are currently laying in my living room floor. Then I had a visit from "my knight" (I need to think of a better name for him I guess), who brought us dinner and wine, and then we just hung out and watched movies.

Now I have two days to get some work done before there is another holiday! Tomorrow night is our New Year's Eve party at the Mesker-household - WooHoo! Can you believe this year is gone already!?!? Wow - I am glad, though. I am ready to get the New Year started!!

Okay, now I have to get some work done...last Friday wasn't that productive around here!
