Sorry it has taken so long to post some Christmas pictures. The Monday before Christmas I woke up with a fever. I couldn't do anything except lay there, luckily my wonderful sister Mandy came and got Andrew and I slept from 11 am until 5:30 pm. Only waking up at 1:30 to eat a piece of toast and to make sure Dave was getting Andrew from my sisters. The fevers proceeded along with a stuffy nose and a sore throat to the point that I could not swallow anything! So lets just say Christmas morning is a blur and it is a good thing we took pictures for me to remember it by. I went to the doctor on Friday morning and they gave me an antibiotic. By late Friday night I was starting to feel normal and could finally eat something. We finally ended Christmas on Sunday but having Christmas dinner. I was glad we waited and I was actually able to enjoy the meal! Here are some pictures of Andrew on Christmas morning.

Andrew truly loved his train set and kitchen and has not stopped playing with them. I loved that he was so excited for each present as he unwrapped it! I think it will make his birthday even more fun because he understands unwrapping presents and that when you do unwrap them you get a toy!

...Our dear old Allen High!

My high school won the Texas High School Football championship last night. It was an awesome and suspensful game! (Dave so kindly upgraded our Direct TV so I could watch it.) If you don't know, I have a tremendous love for football and learned everything I know about it from watching the Allen Eagles play. I went to practically every high school (away and home)game since I was born. This was the first time they made it to the championship and they won!!! Go Eagles!

Christmas Time...

So I thought I better begin posting the Christmas activities before I become overwhelmed. We put up our Christmas tree on Monday. We searched long and hard for the perfect Christmas tree, after a couple tree lots I found it at Home Depot. The same place we bought it last year, I must remember this next year so I can start there. I wanted short and skinny. I think it is perfect and it smells great! Andrew wasn't that interested in the tree decorating but was excited to put the star on. He was interested in our nativity scene which I decided to go out a buy him a small one to play with so I didn't have to hear him cry any more. He now carries around Jesus baby Jesus and Jesus baby Jesus Mommy (aka Mary).
