Santa Was Good

Princess H says we should do Christmas again next year. I think she is catching on! I have been off of work since last Wednesday. Unfortunately I have to drag my behind back into the office tomorrow. So, in honor of signing off on Christmas and bidding New Year's Eve a fond hello, I give you the 13 things that I enjoyed most about Christmas 2009.

  1. I got to spend three nights at my Mom's with my sister an all of the kids. I love being with my family. It can be stressful (and loud), crowded (and loud), and chaotic (and loud), but I always miss it when it is over.
  2. Princess H LOVED her Barbie Dreamhouse with Elevator. LOVED IT.
  3. The kids woke us up at 5 AM when Santa came! My sister and I used to be that excited. That just tells me that we are doing something right.
  4. Super Z told me that he would be happy no matter what he got. (Unless he didn't get the bike that looks like a dirtbike. If he didn't get that he would cry for three days.) He was just glad that I was such a good mom.
  5. I got to be off work for eight days in a row!!
  6. Christmas day we went out to Mamaw and Papaw Felters. They played board games with the kiddos and Mamaw taught Alisha and I how to make her world class crispy, yet mushy, fried potatos. Yum.
  7. Randy, the kids and I got to spend a whole day at the house playing with our toys and enjoying each other before we headed out of town.
  8. Felter Christmas on Christmas Eve was a blast. I laughed so hard at one point with my sister and my cousins that I made no sound at all.
  9. At Felter Christmas I sang the whole family Princess H's bath song, "You don't have to take your clothes off the have a good time, oh No...but you have to take your clothes off, to take a bubble bath, uh huh." to the WHOLE 50+ family. Classic.
  10. Randy and I snuggling on the couch, looking at the tree, and waiting for Santa to come.
  11. Giving people presents that the liked. I LOVE that. If I was rich, I would give presents often...just for fun.
  12. Tyler is home with us!! We LOVE Tyler!!! He is awesome.(Even thugh he is a teenager!)
  13. The kids at mama's. They are so awesome and they love each other so much. I am so happy with those kids. They rock my world.

My Goodlooking Guys

His Favorite Girl In The World

Last week, I was doing a little last minute Christmas shopping when Super Z asked if he could buy my 13 year old niece, Brittany, a gift. I told him that we had already bought Britt's gift. She was marked off the list.


Zane looked at me with wide green eyes (a little puppy dog creeping into them), and said, "Please, Mom. I didn't get her anything. Please let me get her something."

Me, being the brick wall that I am, I relented instantly. He picked out a really cool peace sign ring. It was $10. It worked out pretty well for Super Z, Britt, and, my wallet.

When we got home and he was helping me wrap the ring he said, " Mom, do you know why I had to get that for Britt?"

I said, " Because you love her?"

And he responded, "No, because she is my favorite girl in the world. I have to treat her really good."

How sweet is my baby?

Super Z is 7!

Today we are having Super Z day in honor of the boy's 7th birthday. Super Z day, as far as I can tell, consists of eating a lot of  junk food and playing all day. He wants to ride his bike all the way down to the stop sign, go to see Santa at the Bass Pro Shop, eat lunch at Sonny's, go swimming at the Y, go see The Christmas Carol in 3D, and have dinner at Chuck E. Cheese. I am not sure if we will be able to get everything in, but we will give it our best shot. After all, you only get to turn 7 once, right?

Last month Princess H told me that she wanted Santa Claus to bring her an elevator. I told her that we can't always get what we want from Santa. ( An elevator??? Really?? The first thing my daughter ever asks for by name and it's an elevator???) I also suggested that she might want to think of a few other things that she might want. She hung her head and left me standing in the kitchen. Her dreams of elevators were dashed. I could only hope that she would come up with something else.

A few days later we were watching SpongeBob when a commercial came on for the Barbie Dream Townhouse with ELEVATOR! The princess jumped up squealing and pointing.

"Mom! My elevator! I want it! I want it! Please make Santa bring me my elevator!!!"

So, the elevator is attached to a Barbie Dreamhouse. Who would have known?

Guess What?

I am going to attempt a come back. Again....and probably again after that. I miss blogging. I think everyone has gone away and I will never be read again, but I can live with that. What I can't live with is losing those little moments that seem so big when they happen and then they slip away. So, get ready blog. Serina is back.

The kids are bigger, I got promoted 6 months ago, my family still makes me happy, all the key players from May are still in place, I miss my Mamaw more around the holidays, Super Z can read, Princess H hates to sleep (STILL?????), and Randy works at the same place as me. I think that catches you all (no one) up.

We will start fresh from here. Yay!
