Visit the Cousins From Texas

We really enjoyed out visit with the Drennan family. They live in Texas and come to visit a couple of times a year. Alyssa really loves to spend time with her girl cousins~ AnnaCarroll and Katie.

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve every year the kids go out before bedtime and feed Santa's Reindeer.

I told the kids to go to bed. When I went to check on them Alyssa had made her a pallet on the floor next the the vent. Poor thing was sweating so bad. I had to wake her up to move her.

Christmas Party with Alyssa

I had taken both yesterday and today off from work to attend the kids parties at school. What fun filled days we had.
Alyssa had a PJ Pizza party! They made crafts, ate pizza then watched the Polar Express!

Nanny and Papa were able to come too! They had a fun... I think.

Saturday I dressed the kids up and took them to see Santa. Alyssa was very excited and knew just what she wanted to ask for. Trent (who is on the fence with the whole Santa thing) was alittle forced to go. He is afraid not to believe, because if You Don't Believe.... You Don't Receive. Right?

After leaving Santa we went by my parent's house to see my grandmother before she went back home. Here are some great pictures of them putting candy canes on the tree and visiting with great-grandma.

Then we made a last minute decision to travel to Lake Lanier to see their light display. It was really cool. They had alot of neat lights. I took some pictures but they didn't turn out so great. At the end of the 7 miles of lights they had a huge bonfire to roast marshmallows.

Eventhough they charged $60 per car.......It was great to have that experience with the kids at least once.

Alyssa story.....

Sunday Brett, Alyssa and I went to the store and on the way back stopped at McDonalds's. We had originally stopped for ice cream for Alyssa but when we started to order she wanted some chicken nuggets instead. So Brett ordered her a kids meal with nuggets and him a quarter pounder meal. We got our food and I passed Alyssa's bag back to her. As we are driving down the road the opens her bag and yells, "OK.... who ordered the freaking hamburger." Stunned Brett and I looked at each other trying not to laugh. Apparently she saw the quarter pounder box that Brett's burger came in then saw her nugget box and thought it was too a hamburger. Brett quickly explained that that didn't sound very nice coming from a 6 year old.... But it was funny nonetheless.....

Also... while cleaning under Alyssa's bed last week I found a note from her teacher on why she had to "move her clip" that day..... Alyssa don't you know sweetgirl that momma always will find out.

So Thanksgiving has come and gone. We had a great holiday. Brett and I were off work for most of the week. We cleaned the house and spent some time together as a family, which was nice. I must say Brett did most of the cleaning. I had to work Monday and when I got home he had cleaned the kitchen, laundry room and den areas. It was so nice to relax and not worry about cleaning. On Wednesday I took Alyssa to her "favorite" mall. For her birthday I promised her a new Build-A-Bear. So she made Snow Glow ~ a white polar bear. We had an awesome girls day.

Friday was our annual crazy shopping day. Toys-R-Us threw off our normal plans by opening at midnight instead of 4:00 like they have done in previous years. We all (me, my sisters, mom and aunt) met at the store around 3:30am. We were done and on to Target by 4:30am and to the mall by 6:00am. We shopped, and shopped. It was worth the good deals that we got. They were all done by 10:30am. But I wasn't. My sister, Laurie and I shopped some more, enjoyed an awesome lunch and I took her home around 3:00pm. But I knew that if I stopped then I would crash so I decided to make my way to Tanger. Home @ 6:00pm. So I shopped from 3:30am to 5:30pm. WOW!

Saturday was GAME Day. We had tickets to the GA-Ga TECH game . Brett gets extremely nervous... I mean sickly nervous and at the last minute opted to stay home because of his "bad feeling" about the game. But Trent, Jeff and I had fun, even though Brett was right and we lost. Trent was mortified walking into the stadium from the Varsity. Those DAWG fans were throwing boxes and candy NERDS to the Tech fans as they walked by. I thought it was very clever and funny, but poor Trent took it to heart taking his Tech hat off. It was a good game. I will save my nasty comments to myself.....
