Merry Christmas!

 Hell all I hope everyone had a great Holiday!!!

Christmas Eve I had to work job #2 and i got out and stopped over my Aunts house for a little and hung out.  I then spent sometime after with my parents and brother at their house.  We had dinner and did some gifts.  I left and went home and cleaned up and then headed to church.  I was a long day but I love the late service.  I've been going for so long its just something that makes me feel so good when i leave.  

The late night service to me always made me feel so close to my religion.  A quiet service and i usually see old friends from long ago and catch up with pictures of Quinn.  When I left I headed over to my buddy Andrew’s house.  His parents have people over and its always such a good time.  I stopped in and everyone was there.  Jim one of my best and closest friends was there to great me as well as other long time friends.  We all hung out and just went over old times and just got to catch up. 

I brought my buddy Jim home and we got to talk and catch up.  I don’t get to see him as often as I would like but this year we really did get a lot of time together it was awesome.  I got home and went to bed I had a long day a head of me.

I got up and went to church Christmas Morning.  It was on a Sunday this year so I went.  It’s kinda nice to go on Christmas day.  After I got Quinn and we went home.  She went right to the tree and started tearing gifts open! She was so cute.  She got lots of cute toys and new books and games we have a lot to do this winter! 

Later after our nap we went to my parents house and had dinner with them and my aunt and brother.  We opened gifts and then had dinner.  It was so nice she had so much fun and got such nice stuff.  Some nice cloths, some new toys and some gift cards to some of her play places.  Like the sandbox!   

The great part was I brought my computer over and we skyped with my family in Tennessee.  My uncle and aunt and cousin! Tim and I are really close and talk a lot.  It was nice to see them all.  Technology is just amazing.  It was so nice to see them on the computer. 

We played with her toys and then headed to Jim’s house after.  We spend Christmas day there every year.  This year we got to bring Quinn which was so nice.  She was so excited to see uncle Jimmy.  We played around and Quinn had so much fun. 

The next day we got up and had breakfast and then I had to bring her back to her Mom’s.  This year we just had so much fun.  It was nice to have her Christmas Day.  She’s growing up so fast I still can’t believe it some days.  Well with New near I’m ready for this Year to be over. 

We had some popcorn a couple nights before hand! She loves popcorn

Here's our tree!

We also did a puzzle, she is getting so smart its amazing.

Christmas this year came up so fast I still can't believe it.  It sinks still working so much i love this time of year.  I got my tree up late and was just running around and never really enjoyed everything.  I know I will be able one day to settle down and actually get to enjoy the holidays without working so much and running around.  It's okay for now I just keep going now and know it will be over soon....

I have my yearly wrap up to write and then it’s a new year!

I hope everyone had a great holiday.

Always remember you are never alone.

A December to Remember!

Hello all,
December came and went so fast!  Quinn was in her first Christmas Pageant.  We spend some of our weekends getting ready and rehearsing. 

In the beginning of the month Aunt took my brother, Quinn and I to dinner for our annual Christmas dinner.  We went to crescent beach.  The dinner was really nice and then after we took our yearly walk by the lights and lake.  After we went out for ice cream, then back home for a little TV then bed.  My brother and I have been going to dinner with my Aunt and Grandma when we were both kids.  We used to pack up our bags and have a great night.  When my grandma passed we continued to go out and added Quinn when she was born.  It’s so nice to keep the tradition alive. 

The next weekend I had Quinn was in the pageant!  Quinn was so cute.  She was a lamb and did so good.  When she first got up on the alter I guess a couple of the animals started rough housing and Quinn came down crying cause another animal pushed her or something lol.  She would then go back up and come back a few more times.  I guess it’s not cute unless a little one is running all around.  Then when it was time for the angles to sing Quinn climbed up on the manger and reached for the star.  It was cute she almost made it to the top!  Everyone was just staring up to see if she would tumble or tip the whole scene over!!!  The angles had to run up and get her down!  The Angles looked over her it was so cute…

In the end the congregation was just in love with her and she stole the show.  She didn’t really walk down to do her part but for a 3 year old she did great!
Brad son’s Gabriel was the donkey they were so cute together!  They are all growing up so fast I can’t believe how many kids there were in the church now.  December did go by so fast it didn’t snow till the end of the month. 

Enjoy the pics!

Next up Christmas!!!  The blog is getting put back together and updated I realized my blog this year has been up for a year.  Im really excited the first year went really well.  I started off very quiet and with just basic info and things about Quinn.  As i reached out and started answering questions meeting new friends my sight grew.  I will talk more about that in my year end wrap up.

I will talk to you all soon!
Remember you are never alone...
