An Early Christmas!

We had a pretty fun visit with my Dad and Aunt Penny! The kids were excited and Bria was attached to Aunt Penny from the get go! We got plenty of pics and plenty of fun chatting and shopping in! We even got some card playing inand let me tell ya...my dad is a card shark! I have never seen a person so good at cards before! :) I guess when you have played for years and years you get better, but I have played for a long time and games in general are fun, but I am not extremely competitive nor greatly talented in those things, so I don't really care to know all the strategy! I just like to laugh and socialize and get to know people while playing for fun! :) Besides my dad and brothers have always won and I have just accepted it! ha ha ha!
On Friday they took me out to Applebee's for my birthday and gave me some gifts. A beautiful necklace and earrings that aunt Penny's talented daughter made. My sister gave me a pretty cool bracelet. Alyssa says it's written in Chinese-ha ha ha! It actually looks like an Indian bracelet with some design on a silver piece that looks like some writing. I don't usually wear them because my wrists are always too small for them, but this one fit rather nicely :) They sang to me and then had the servers sing to me. I am not one for that type of attention, but it was a nice night together with my loved ones. My dad and Aunt Penny made it a really nice and special night for me. I can tell that she has always loved us kids and I am grateful for that and her thoughtfulness.
Look at all the LOOT! Woo-Hoo! It was fun to see everyone giving and looking excited when they opened their gifts!

Wardrobe malfunctions! The pants were hard to put on!

Even Tys had a difficult time or...is he havin' fun playing barbie dolls?!?!

I am glad that it all ended up turning out and that we were able to have a little Christmas together! :) After all Family is what the holidays are ALL about!
