Well, another year has come and gone much faster than it should have. So much has happened this past year that I realize every day how blessed I am. No matter how bad my day gets, how much stress I have, or how bad I feel, I look at my two kids and realize how lucky I really am.
Christmas morning went off without much of a hitch. We waited for Devon to get here before we had our tree, but Cheyenne is so young, she didn’t realize she was waiting for anything.
So we had our tree and the kids opened their presents and were excited. Devon was super excited about his new metal detector, digital camera and his Snuggie. Cheyenne was just excited. Everything she opened, she wanted to play with right then…she didn’t want to open more presents. But we finally got through it and got everything opened and she loves all her presents. She loves her kitchen, her first dollhouse, and her tea set. Grandpa has showed her how to set up a tea party and she loves to sit at her table and entertain her babies.
All in all, we had a great Christmas!!
We didn’t do anything for New Year’s Eve, just stayed home and relaxed and stayed safe. I didn’t let Cheyenen stay up until midnight, but I did let her stay up an hour later and go to bed at 9:00. We had a New Year’s Eve Countdown and counted down to 9:00 (Midnight, Cheyenne time). We counted down from 10 and then made a bunch of noise and “Yay”s before I took her back to bed. It was fun.
I can’t wait to see what 2011 brings us!! Happy New Year!!
