Happy New Year!! (Pictures added)

I"ve been in a funk. Haven't wanted to blog, read emails, read books, or do much of anything.

Actually this is pretty much the first week of doing nothing since I got out of school on December 8! (Then next week school starts up again. . . what fun. . .)

The week after school let out I was getting everything ready for our Christmas party at work. which was on the 17th. I make that happen. It is fun and the guys enjoyed it. Said it was the best one yet! WooHoo!

Then Christmas week, I had a little get together for my "Other Kids". Ya know the kids I didn't give birth to but call me Momma? One brought baby girl! So they all had to fend for themselves!! I got to play with Baby Dani!

THEN the next week, Mar and Gabe came to spend the night on New Year's Eve. It has been a long time since I just got to spend time with them doing absolutely nothing since their Mom has now decided that she can live without me in her life and refuses to speak to me or let me see the boys. So I get to get them from Dad when he will let me. So we had a superb time! We went out for pizza for lunch on New Year's Eve. Then a little shoppin' cuz I have no clue what they are into now since I do not get to see them. But we got some cool stuff!!

Then Laynee and her family came over and the fun began!! It was like Christmas and New Year's all rolled into one!! Steamers from the ceiling fan!

Horms! Clackers! Blowy roll out things! Making cookies! Drinking Sparkin' Grape Juice! Playing games! Then stayin' up til 1:30 in the morning!! I know! I know! They are 9 but geez!! I wanted their one time of year to be extra special!! Of course we were late gettin' back to Dad's because we overslept! BUT I washed the clothes! Didn't have time to dry them but they were clean!!

So I hope everyone had a grand New Year's Eve and Day!!

Hope you Kackled through it all!!

I think it is tough for everyone to get back on the horse.

ugh. i'm still struggling to get back into the groove. of course, it doesn't help that the kids are STILL home because school is cancelled due to the snow!

I've been in a funk, too. It's hard getting back to "normal" after the holidays, isn't it??? But I'm tryin'.

I hope you have a great new years! I get in similar funks too, at times. I don't think I've read the news or read a book for weeks now! I just can't face it, for some reason!

Hey, KaLynn... I've missed you! Sounds like you had a blast with the kids. Nothing compares! Happy New Year! Enjoy your last few days before classes start up again!

KaLynn said...

AWW Guys!! I've missed you too! I've snuck around and read some blogs! Didn't comment but I was there in the background, sneakin'!

I'm back! I already have a goofy post for tomorrow ready! Added pics of the grands to this one too. We had so much fun! I miss those boys soo bad! and they miss me coming around! for 7 years I was in their life DAILY! and now, maybe twice a YEAR!! I told them that I may not get to see them as often but we would make it the best when we DID get together!

See ya tomorrow! Keep kacklin!!

So glad to see you back here!! More than once I was going to email and then though, maybe you just needed some down time.

So Happy New Year to you too!!

The kids looked like they had a great time celebrating with you.

We are off for three weeks of Computer-free vacation so you won't see me around until early in February.

Have a great month and we can catch up when I get back!


KaLynn said...

Deb, email me anytime you want! That is not, nor ever will be, a problem! Ever!

I took time off around the holidays and it's been hard to get back in the groove. Trying to get caught up has been a challenge.

Welcome back,
