Where did December go? I remember only a few things... it was cold and it was Christmas.

We had a great Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Meuchels house. Lots of good food and getting spoiled.

As for New Years Eve....don't ask. It was a blast due to energy-drink induced silliness.
Yes, those are 3D glasses from an earlier showing of Avatar. Yes, they are sweet!

Catching up one month at a time...

We just cruised right through November. Our second cruise, this time to Grand Cayman, Isla Roaton Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel. It was a blast of course. Some of our favorite things...
1. The coolest karaoke DJ ever. His name was Kim and he was hilarious and very talented.
2. Honduras. So beautiful. Lush green mountains coming right out of the ocean. Unfortunately it rained that day so we kinda missed out, but we were lucky just to see the place.
3. The food. So yummy. We had the choice to eat chocolate molten cake EVERY night. And we chose yes. For any of you that know me.... it is my favorite.
4. We had a very amusing comedian. Percy Cruise II was his name if you ever get the chance, go see him and laugh your butts off.
5. Our tour guides. Whoa. If you want to meet interesting people go on private tours. Our Roaton guide was a sweet person trying to provide for his family, he was very religious and would make the best mormon, we left him feeling so blessed for all that we have. In Grand Cayman we were escorted to Stingray City and had an amzing experience swimming with Stingrays. Our Belizian guide was CRAZY. I think we are lucky to come away from there with our money and lives.... as in, we had a pretty good chance of getting robbed and killed. His name was Mr. Bullet and he worked in the states training Muhammad Ali... or so the story goes. And we were the best tour guides ever, in finding the perfect beach in Cozumel... Playa Bonita, aka Paradise.
5. Relaxing. Need I say more.
It was so fun to come home to the kids. Man, being away from them sure gives you a fresh look at motherhood. For AJ, it was back to work. We have been blessed with tons of it. He is still running just to keep up.
In the last couple of days, I have been so missing this vacation. The holidays are very fun, but not relaxing... I am spoiled and feel like I need a break.

To fill you in...

Just some pictures of our week, and what a fun week it was! We had a birthday cheeseburger at Fudd's and Benson's skidsteer party on Friday. We were so lucky to have a whole crew of his friends. I think they had a ball.

Best give-away evah....

OK.... I hate to do this because it slims my chances to win but.... a friend at church has started a crafty blog. I know, as if I need another blog to check everyday. Every time I see her she is sporting a new, super cute bag over her shoulder. I have been begging for months to have her teach me, and am filled with bag envy every Sunday. This is my chance. Head over to her new blog, and try your luck at winning. The coolest part is her partner is also her mom. Here's to hoping I win and you don't.
