Kids Christmas Party 2009!!

We got all of the kids together this year for a gift exchange and it was SUCH a fun night! Everyone played well together and the babies were just as sweet as pie. Between ELEVEN kids and EIGHT Moms, I'd say it was a success! Can't wait for next year with all of the new babies to join in the fun. =) Enjoy!

Anna & Makenna, Randi & Easton, Joanna & Wyatt, Jacob, Kristin & Kaitlyn, Lezlie & Gavin, Me & Jaxon (Blake is on the front row, BIG cheesin'!)

We loaded up luggage for four, toys, movies and dual DVD players in the SUV & headed north to Oklahoma to visit family! Leaving at 7pm on Friday night was a great idea...for BLAKE! Jaxon on the other hand. Well let's just say he wasn't a happy camper for the first 3 hours or so. SIX hours one way is a looooong drive for anyone! Once he settled in and got some sleep it was much better. Poor little grumpy boy. He wanted HIS bed! We made it into Skiatook at about 1am. Got to bed by 2:30am and wrestled a very sleepy boy back to sleep.

Saturday was a FULL day of fun at Grandmother's house and by nightfall, the whole family was there for dinner & LOTS of playing for the kittle ones. It was a packed house but the kids had a blast! Sunday we got to have a big breakfast at Grandmother's and then by nap time we loaded up and headed back to Forney. The trip home was much more pleasant despite the small detour and being in the car again for 6+ hours. It was a good trip! MUCH needed time with the family we don't get to see very often & lots of fabulous memories!

Blake snuggled up in Grandpa's lap

Uncle Craig had to get his nap in too!! LOL

HAPPY baby boy!

On the road back home......

When she woke up she was saying, Mommy I want to get out and snuggle with you!

So we stopped for gas & a little snuggling! Then she wanted to take pictures.

Silly faces!!
