Tonight Dec. 22nd we had Christmas with the Arnold's at Grammy's house. We had fondue and opened gifts from each other and then from the Dees side of the family! I have to say that we are all so very blessed!!! The kids were all excited as were the adults. Kevin received many OU gifts (Jake and Kellee got OSU)and I received a crocheted blanket in my very favorite color of BURGUNDY!!! The kids received a bunch of things including, games, purses, binoculars, transformers, ornaments and were all Very excited about everything and then all of the girls got jewelry from Grandma Choo choo and Grandpa Joe and the loved their bling bling...I have pics to prove it! Kenzie helped Kellee and me have a flashback to the 80's because she got 3 pr of leg warmers....remember those for all children of the 80's!!?? I think Gigi really enjoyed watching the kids open gifts and Brooke's little squeals were really adorable! Poor Devin wasn't feeling that well and come to find out he has strep!~!! UCH
The kids make very special gifts with Grammy for us parents and we look forward to them every year this year Kevin got a chest painted with OU and a football and it's to keep his ticket stubs in and I got a long banner and every Christmas I am to hang and add a fabric snowflake to it that shows the height of the kids and it says, "Let it snow, watch us grow" very cool idea! I wonder if they will still let me do it when they are teenagers...I doubt it but a mom can always hope!
I feel very blessed because 8 years ago we didn't have any children and only wondered if we would ever have them. God has truly blessed us with these 2 precious gifts, and for them I am VERY thankful each and every day and also for the wonderful husband that works so hard for our family!
