It has been a loooooooong time since I have updated you all on the happenings around our world. I'm sure I will skip a lot, but I'm going to start at the beginning of Christmas Break.

Sarah stayed with us for the first 5 days. Jo loved it, I loved it, I hope Sarah loved it! We attempted to make a gingerbread house, but we decided it looked more like a barn! But hey, for making it from scratch, not kit at all; I think it turned out great! Jo added army tanks and Jeff added some suicidal gummy bears; I think he just wanted them to fall off the roof so he could eat them first!
I took Jeff and Cam to Cowboys Stadium for a tour as one of their Christmas presents. I think I enjoyed almost as much as they did. It was really cool. Here are some pictures of the boys.
We hosted Christmas Eve with Jeff's mom's side of the family at our house for the first time! It seemed to be a success. Our house is a bit smaller than Jeff's parents, but that just meant we all had to stay in the same room and actually talk to each other! I stressed a little (okay maybe a lot) because they all showed up an hour earlier than I had told them and I was just getting started on cooking.
Jo wasn't very specific with what he want for Christmas, he wanted "every boy thing; no girl toys". Santa brought him a basketball goal. We have only had nice enough weather to play with it once since Christmas though. And "Santa" forgot the antifreeze for the bottom where you put the water, so guess who has to suffer and park in the driveway?! If you guessed got it! arg!
And here is my little stud with his mp3 player. He liked it so much that he opened presents with it going. Too Cute!

Well world, I have more I need to catch you up on (like Jo's first school/family dance), but that will have to come later. Hope your Christmas was filled with as much love and fun as ours was!
