Christmas 2009

We had a nice Christmas with just the 3 of us. Devon took 2 weeks off work so it was nice to have him home for the holiday. We decided to go to the Columbia, South Carolina Zoo and Aquarium, It was Alexander's 1st time at a zoo. We had fun walking around looking at all the different animals,reptiles and fishes. I think Alex's favorite part was riding on the Carousal & feeding the Giraffes by hand.
Also here in Georgia we went to "The Lights Of The South" where there were thousands of lights on display. We bundled up, had some hot chocolate and went on a hay ride down a trail with Lots of Christmas lights, it was a little chilly but we had a blast. On Christmas Eve we invited over Devon's Air Force buddy Adam Helt to spend the day with us watching movies and enjoying a delicious meal that included a Honey baked ham, corn, homemade Macaroni and Cheese, green salad and some sourdough garlic bread. It was nice to have someone else to enjoy the holiday with when our family and close friends live so far away. Our Christmas Mornin started at 5am when our Alex alarm clock went off waking us up. To me Christmas time is a lot more fun when you have a kid to watch them playing in the wrapping paper and see the excitement on their faces when they see what Santa Clause has brought them. We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

One of my new year resulutions is to start posting more in our blog. I'm
trying to get better at making more
time to update our blog more often.
Best Wishes for Everyone in this New Year 2010!

Yes, blog more often! I'm setting that goal, too, now that I'm finally settled in Kansas. Thanks for posting. I miss you so much! Are you sure you're not moving to Kansas any time soon?
