Christmas Week

Look! Here I am again. Impressive right? :) I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did. It was pretty busy but a ton of fun. The only bummer was that Jamal pulled a muscle in his back and got sick a couple of days before so he pretty much laid around all weekend long not feeling good. 

Christmas Eve we went to the candlelight service at church like we always do. As usual it was fun. who doesn't long singing Christmas songs by candlelight? We also take Communion on Christmas Eve and I'll let you in on a little secret, I may be the weirdo who takes a few extra of the crackers. I find them oddly delicious. Then after church we went to my aunt's to celebrate with them and my grandma. We exchanged gifts and had some snacks. 

Christmas morning we slept in since Jamal wasn't feel well and then went to cousin's house in the afternoon for a big dinner with all my family. We chatted and ate and had a good time. It is always nice to see everyone and this year I think all of my out of town cousins made it which was cool. We spent most of the day there. 

On the 26th my aunt Priscilla took me and my cousin Meagan out to dinner and to see The Cocktail Hour at the Guthrie. I love dressing up and going to plays so that part was fun but the dinner wasn't too good and the play kinda sucked but it was still a good night :) 

Then on Saturday I went to a surprise 70th birthday party for my great aunt Esther. So there I got to see the other side of my family which was nice. We don't see them too often so it is always fun to get together with them. I am seriously proud of my great looking family #goodgenes 

I would just like to mention that I am the oldest one in this picture and the 2nd to shortest; the only person shorter than me is 8 years old...

These guys crack me up. They had some funny poses. 

All the girls

And on Sunday I went ice skating for the first time in years. I always want to go but Jamal refuses and year after year I just never do it. So when Meagan suggested we go I couldn't say no. We went downtown to the Depot with a couple of her friends. Ice skating is a lot more work than I remember! My legs were sore. But it ended up being a lot of fun. 

And now to get ready for New Year's! What are your plans? We still have no idea what we're doing.

Oh hey guys! It's been a while. How are you? I've missed reading about your life. I am working on catching up. I can't believe the year is just about over now!! It went so fast. Does life really go faster the older you get? I am not okay with that! It needs to slow down so I can catch up. 

I know I have been saying for a while now whenever I randomly post that I am back and then disappear again so I won't say that. I will just show up when I'm ready otherwise I am out enjoying my life that is going way too fast for me. 

We just had a brown Christmas-the first that I can remember- and I can't say I hated it. I was kind of hoping it would stay that way all winter so I wasn't exactly thrilled about the white stuff the next day. Although it was very pretty. 

Well here is what I have been up to lately:

I started selling Jamberry! Jamberry makes vinyl nail wraps that last for up to two weeks on your hands and six on your toes. They come in a ton of fun designs, are easy to use, and don't damage your nails. If you want a sample or some more info let me know! I would love to talk with you. 

I got the iPhone 6. A while back the charger that came with my phone broke so I bought a new one and then a couple of weeks ago that one broke. My memory on my phone had also been full for a while but I didn't want to delete any pictures so to solve my problems I just went and bought a new phone. Makes sense right ;) It was a little different getting used to the size but I love it. 

Colby Jack got a very much needed hair cut. Dude came home from the groomer half the man he was (compare his size in Christmas card pic)  and since he was naked and freezing afterwards he got a cool new sweatshirt and hat. Looking very studly. 

Jamal and I went to a bottling party at Norseman Distillery. It was really fun to be the ones to bottle the alcohol. We even signed some of the bottles. This is their bottling station. 

We ordered and sent out our Christmas cards. I wish Jamal had a hat on too that was the plan and Colby Jack wasn't looking but other than that they look wonderful :) 

Alright well that's all I have got for now I will be back again tomorrow with a Christmas week recap. It went quickly but was a lot of fun with family.
