Shane and Shelton
After Shelton's play, Shane had to go up to work and drop off some parts that we had brought back. So my mom and I went and got our nails done! That night we had Shane's work Christmas party to attend, which turned out really great :)

Shane's great uncle Bob suffered a severe heart attack shortly before Christmas so we spent some time up at the hospital with him and his wife Ruth. It was such a scary time, but we were able to spend time and have such a wonderful talk which I am so thankful for.
Shane did work the week of Christmas, so I was able to spend alot of time with my mom which was so nice, of course we went shopping and had lunch and just had fun hanging out :)
We did manage to get Bransen into the Vet to get his yearly shots, which was definitely a plus!!
Christmas Eve we had an open house Christmas party to attend at the Oeschger's home and then we ended up going to eat that night with my uncle Kyle, aunt Amy and cousins Colby and Tyler. After dinner we all went back over to their house to exchange gifts, which was hilarious! They tricked me and gave me this old grandma looking night gown... and I of course didn't realize that this was a joke so I was trying to be as polite and thankful while wearing this look of shock on my face while everyone was laughing!!! Then I got my real pajamas which are adorable :) We stayed over there for quite a while before going over to Joe and Jennifer's to stay the night and let the kids open all of their presents from us. The kids enjoyed all their presents from us, they all got jeans from gap, shirts and 2 other presents each and then we gave them 3 family gifts to share or play together! Shelton didn't really know what to think.. since we got him 2 psp games and he had no idea he was getting a psp for Christmas we had to let him open 2 boxes with a note from Shane and I with a couple of dollars saying that he had to wait until Christmas Morning to open the rest of his "real" presents from us! This is "our" every year family tradition and I look forward to Christmas Eve and the Morning of each and every year!

Around 11:00 am we left and went back to my parents house where we had such a wonderful Christmas opening presents with them! They definitely still spoil us every year!!! I got a new hot pink Chi to add to my collection haha, I swear I have soo many of those things.. One in every color! I also got a new Abas wallet, its Taupe from the Sassy Collection, Oh it's sooo beautiful and definitely one of my Fav's!!! I got a new Black Fossil watch.. some clothes... cd's... and soo much more I can't even think of it all! Shane got a new play station which he was so thrilled about... the Madden 09 and Country Singstar (really for me!) to go with it... a ton of clothes... and a bunch of other stuff! haha

A little later in the evening we all loaded up and drove to Tulia to see my great grandmother and my grandmother who recently passed away in May's sister and her family! It was so awkward to not spend Thanksgiving or Christmas this year in Tulia at the nursing home.. I mean I have spent every holiday, birthday, family event in the family room of that nursing home since I was old enough to remember. My grandmother had Multiple Sclerosis and was in that home for most of my life.. more than 15 years. Holidays will never be the same without her here but I'm so thankful that she is not here suffering anymore! After leaving Tulia we went back to Happy and didn't leave until about 11 pm. We had a wonderful Christmas!

We had plans Friday evening with some good friends for a game night but had to cancel because I was so severely sick (throwing up.. and you know the other stuff that does NOT need to be spelled out on here) all Friday afternoon, evening and most of Saturday. That was definitely a BUMMER... I even missed my hair appointment Saturday morning, which Never and I mean NEVER happens. Since I was so sick I didn't go with Shane to visit with his grandparents on his dads side Friday night and they were so disappointed! I love going over to visit with them and they love having us over so I was also bummed about not getting to go. They were able to have a nice long visit though which was very nice!
