Christmas Eve Gage and I headed over to my Aunt Judy's for a Christmas brunch. That is always a enjoyable time. Gage gets to hang out with his second cousin Jack who he doesn't get to see all that much. We enjoyed the morning there and headed home to play with his new toys about 1 pm. Gage was playing and wanted to open a toy that had a ton of parts and I told him no to wait till we were home. The next thing I knew he was saying he was ready to go home and telling people bye.
At this age you never know what they will say or do!
After opening his boxes when we got home we headed for the movies. Last year I wanted to start a tradition of going to the movies on Christmas Eve. Only last year didn't go so smooth. We drove in a blizzard to Pittsburg since Parsons shut down early because of the snow. This year I called ahead of time to double check showing schedules. We went and watched Yogi Bear. It was alright. Gage liked it. Allen liked the popcorn so much he ate the entire large container by himself!
Christmas Day was enjoyable. (Except Allen had a major stomach ache, I think eating all that popcorn had something to do with it!) Gage slept in so I was able to have the camera and camcorder ready for him. He came out and was excited to see Santa drank his milk, ate a cookie and left presents.
Since Christmas morning we have spent a lot of time hanging out with family and figuring out what all we received. I am so thankful for having each other and that we are blessed with a healthy son. Allen and I couldn't ask for anything more.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a Happy New Year.

We sold Scooby back in October. This is old but thought it was cute enough to still share it.

The weather was perfect, cold but not windy. It really made it feel more like Christmas.
This picture doesn't do it justice. The house and pole was all lit up and in the dark it looked awesome.
Gage did not like having to wait for a clean house before messing it all up again! We finally finished cleaning and started dragging the containers in from the shed one by one. He is such a big help. He requested he hang the decorations on the tree so I let him. Oh, see the GMC hat as our tree topper, yeah that was his idea of decorating too! You can see he put them all in one place pretty much. Can you believe that once I re-organized the tree with those same bulbs the tree looks good! It doesn't look like many ornaments when they are all hung in the same spot.
Doesn't matter what the finished product looked like though, he loved every minute of it. This time of year is all about making memories, right?

While on this excursion we also on water seen where Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey and several other actors have mansions on the water.
After the excursion it was time to get back on the ship after a fun day at port. After dinner Tuesday night we went to the comedy show on the boat and the comedians were really funny.
Wednesday we were at Half Moon Cay when we woke up. It is a Carnival owned island which has sand that feels like moon sand (maybe that's part of the name?!) Allen and Chuck had the deep sea fishing excursion so Trisha and I headed for a day at the beach. The guys had fun, Allen had fun until he became sick with motion sickness. They were in a little fishing boat in the middle of the ocean. They both caught fish Chuck's got off at the boat and Allen actually caught a Blue Marlon (they said that they were rare for where they were fishing) but it flipped up in the air and fought long enough it broke away. Trisha and I enjoyed sunning all day with some strawberry daiquiri's. The water was pretty cool at first but then enjoyable once in. It was a nice day for us to do nothing but get some sun rays. Trisha received a bit too much but I didn't burn at all.Thursday we were at Grand Turk, T.C. and that day I have to say I did not enjoy. The beach was just another beach nothing special, and they had several shops but nothing that caught my attention and that was it. We went to Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville to spend the day. They had a water sport called "The Flow Rider". Allen did this where you surf and knee board against a water jet on some mats. I wish I would have done this but I didn't know what it was till Allen started and by then the spots were all sold out. So once again I just laid out in the sun and watched Allen. He actually did rather well. He lasted the longest out of all the people doing it on the surf and knee board! My husband is very good at water sports though what can I say.

Gage has some preschool work books we picked up at Walmart that he likes to work on. Sometimes this is what he does while I cook supper.

I'm pretty sure it's Gage's baby now. Last night it was all we could do to get him in the house away from it. Then he snuck out the back door and was headed for the barn in the pitch black when Allen came in wondering where Gage was. Gage had told me he was going to go tell daddy something and he snuck out to the barn just to make sure the calf was going to bed.
When we were out there he also talked to the calf and I overheard him saying "It's okay, come to mama baby calf". Too cute!
This morning it was rise and shine no complaining since Gage got to go feed.
