Today has been WONDERFUL! Just to recap you, Andrew and I left yesterday and headed to Conway to see my parents. We opened presents and visited then mom, andrew & I went and saw "Yogi the Bear 3-D" it was a cute kid's movie and had good 3-D affects. Back to the presents- if you remember maybe last post or so I posted pictures of Baxi opening up presents early! He loves opening them- I'm going to try to upload a video of him opening up one. Hopefully it works, never done this before.
The next morning we got up early and headed back to Farmington to go to Andrew's parents! We also got to bring little Baxi with us = ) My parents came down to go to my grandma's but they're staying at the casino tonight, so we get to keep little Bax! Here's a picture of him on the way back today. Yes, you will see blankets in the background- we covered the seats so he wouldn't scratch them. Poor thing he only had a little square, the car was very full!
We got to Andrew's parents and snacked on goodies and then opened up lots of goodies = ) Had some lunch, then went and visited both of Andrew's grandma's and then my grandma. Here's a picture of most of our goodies- I thought I got just about everything, then went downstairs and found others ha! But didn't feel like taking another picture!
I'm going to try to name everything in the photo: boots, ice scraper, make-up bag, 2 Hobo Clutch's, blow-dryer, 2 pull-overs, pj bottoms, robe, picture, frying pan, drill & stuff for drill, sheets, gun wipes, saw & Chik-fil-a calendar
Here's another picture of the boots from above- I'm sure a lot of you are thinking OMG Kara- but you know they're me! They're just like Uggs, so super comfy, but they're Gianni Rich- New York. Don't ask, never heard of them. My mom found them for me!
As you can see, Andrew and I came out pretty good with all of our gifts. After we visited with grandparents we had to come back home and get Andrew's truck to go pick up Nala girl. We boarded her last night and didn't want her riding in my car- a little too big! Before we left, we opened up our stockings from each other. Since we got the TV we just did stockings but I put a $50 limit on it! I got a workout shirt, iTUNES gift card and Eclipse! So excited- I will be watching it tonight. When we got home from picking up Nala, I had her open up some gifts, but she's not into it like Baxi. Here's some pictures though
Now going back a few days- on Thursday night a bunch of us girls got together and had our Christmas Party at April's house. We all brought an appetizer and/or dessert. TONS of good food and great company! I think Whitney has been putting on these Christmas parties since she was about 6. So yes we've all been friends forever. We just decided instead of doing gifts, we would buy a $20 gift card. I read "Charlie Brown Christmas Story" and when we heard the words "Charlie Brown, the" we had to pass the gift. I ended up with a gift card from Impressions in Fayetteville (thank you Kara W.). I haven't been there in forever, so now this gives me an excuse to go and spend $$$. Here's some pictures from the night. First one is of Harley passed out in April's lap- I guess we were all talking too much and boring her. Next one is a group picture!
I finally got my wedding shoes in last Thursday and the right size! They fit good- I've shown everyone above because I had them with me BUT here's a picture for everyone else.
Here's the bottom of them- One shoe says "I" the other says "DO"
And I just realized I took this picture backwards- ha typical me. You get the point = )
Sorry such a long post! Hope everyone had a great Christmas.
