Christmas is almost here....

The holiday season is here and we put on some Christmas jams and did some decorating. As you can see from the picture Todd was very excited to get going! We put up the tree and wrapped some presents and got a very pretty Poinsettia from Blaine's funeral. So it went nicely with our Christmas cards. We seem to get at least one every day and I love the ones with pictures. Also thank you Grandpa Sherratt for our Christmas Olive Garden gift card. Its always nice to use it for a date night every year :) And yes I put lights on the house this year and yes as you can see in the picture they are being held up with scotch tape! I don't really know how to put up lights so it was a first time trial and error. When Todd saw them he smiled and said "tape huh"? So we will see if they stay up through the new year. Anyway Christmas is this week and so I will have more pictures to come. Hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

Random Mix

Ok, here are a hodge podge of pictures from the last 3 or 4 weeks. I got some of Todd and Buddy chilling on the couch and some of Todd looking rugged. I made him grow out some facial hair that he hates, but Ill keep it as long as possible :)
Then a couple weeks ago was Brianne's birthday and where else would she want to go but Chuck E Cheese! We had the Conroy's and some of the Harris clan. Elizabeth is in love with Todd so its always cute to see them together. He spent almost the whole time playing games with her. And we all had a good time and spent like $400 dollars in tokens to get Chinese handcuffs, cotton candy, and pop rocks! You gotta love Chuck.

A week or so later Todd's sister and family came to stay with us for a couple days and it was fun having all the kids here. They are so cute and we played games and hung out. We always love having them here.

So that has been our last couple weeks. We did put up all of our Christmas decor and I put lights on the house too. Ill take some pictures of that and put them up this week. We did some secret Santa names off the giving tree in the mall and that is always fun to do. Dad loved shopping for the little girl. Some sad news the family got is Uncle Blaine died from his 16 year battle with Parkinson's this week. The funeral is Saturday but Carol and the rest of the family are doing well. So that has been whats going on the last month or so. I will be better with keeping things up to date. :)

Sorry to everyone for lagging so bad. I usually do all of my postings at work (to pass the time) but Todd and I got laid off on the same day some weeks ago (talk about luck!) and so I haven't had any Internet to post. Thankfully our really nice neighbors let us piggy back their connection so we have it at the house now. I will put some pictures up this week and do some updating. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!!
