We had our 2nd annual New Year's fondue party with the Wilson's complete with a little bubbly and pot banging. Around 9 pm the adults were trying to figure out how to fool Bailee (Evan & Kassidy would never realize we were fooling them) into thinking it was actually midnight. We just wanted to celebrate and go to bed! BUT, we made it to midnight! We had our black-eyed peas in Texas caviar so here's to a great 2010!
About a year and a half ago we went to 'the farm' in New Diana and found what we like to refer to as the chupacabra. This year Chandler got a pink BB gun for Christmas, so we went to 'the farm' for some target practice. Now Evan loves to be a tomboy, so I thought she would enjoy this. I had to force her to hold Chandler's gun.
As we were pulling into MiMi and PaPa's, we met Keri on his way to the hospital. After waiting several hours, It was finally determined that Madison had an appendicitis. She ended up having surgery around 8 pm Christmas night.
While she was getting some pain meds in the hospital, Evan and Chandler had a snowball fight with Uncle Roland. Aunt Kim and Uncle Roland live in Ft. Worth where it had just snowed and iced. They had enough wet snow ideal for packing into a snowball in the back of their truck. Unbcle Roland is such a good sport. They all three came inside quite wet! What a memorable Christmas!
Evan & I got dressed and scurried off to Longview to spend a few days with family. She packed up a whole suitcase plus another bag of just toys to play with while we were gone! Watching her see what Santa has brought has been pretty awesome in years past, but this year I would have to say was absolutely magical. I can't wait to get started on next year's Christmas!
