We've had a fantastic weekend...

So much that this is the first time I've sat down to the computer! It's late & I'm tired, so I'll follow up later with pictures...but here's the quick recap! Friday night we went to the movies with friends to see The Tourist. Okay, first let me tell you that I just love Johnny Depp. He's HOT! HOT I tell you!!! 



I was so disappointed in this film. The last ten minutes were great and by that point I had figured "it" out! The movie started out slow and there were a few questions that were left unanswered. All in all, I would say wait till it comes to Redbox to rent this movie for $1. Very sad for lovers of Johnny Depp. I kept waiting for my suave Johnny to enter the screen, but he never did...oh well, there is always Chocolat!

Then Saturday morning bright & early, we took the kids to my parents' house to hang out for the day while we finished our Christmas shopping! And we did! I was so proud of us!! I had bought a very few (as in three) things before yesterday so we had a lot to get done and we had to get it all done on a deadline, b/c at 2:00 we had to load up and drive to Clear Lake (that's an hour drive for those folks that aren't local) for a 1st b'day party! The kids were well rested and fed and in good moods since they had been with my parents all day - which wouldn't have been the case had we drug them around to all the stores with us, plus Emma is too old to shop with her for her anymore...she doesn't miss a thing! A year ago I could hide a gift under stuff in the basket - no longer! 

The birthday party was a lot of fun, too and we got to visit with friends we don't get to see often enough! By the time we made it home both kids were passed out, so we put them straight to bed! Then this morning we got up and went to church, then headed out to my sister's house for our first Christmas. B/c we'll be cooking for the BIG family get together, we went the easy route today and had dinner catered - it was delicious, too! The kids had a blast - they ran upstairs while the adults played games downstairs and it sounded like a (excuse the cliche) heard of elephants up there - signs of them having fun I guess!!

And again tonight by the time we made it home they were both passed out so they went straight to bed. Now Michael and I are sitting up watching football and just relaxing!!

I am off till 2011, so I promise to get pics from this weekend posted - I'm just too tired now to do anything more than this. Since I'll be home, I hope to get a lot done, while the kids are napping, of course! I don't have the first thing wrapped, so I'll have to do that while they are sleeping and I have a lot of pictures from this weekend I need to get processed...plus I had some cute pics of the kids all dressed up today I want to have printed!

Now I think I'm gonna stretch out on the couch with Michael and drift in and out of sleep while he watches football!! LOL! G'night!
