Christmas and more. . .

Christmas Eve at the Moll's

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all! It's been a busy month for us. . .

We had a wonderful time visiting with my side of the family the weekend before Christmas. We celebrated with my mom's side on Saturday at my grandma's apartment in Waukesha. Then we celebrated with mom, dad, Erica, Brian, McKynzie and Rylie. The kids had a ball playing, as always.

Christmas Eve we were at the Moll's. We had a great time visiting with Jan, Lori, Grnadma K, Grandpa Henry and Eric. We dropped Ruby off there and came home, because on Christmas Day we started our drive to MO for our friends Matt and Autumn's wedding. It was a long drive, but we had a great time. We spent an extra day in St Louis and visited the Arch and we also went to Cabela's and Bass Pro Shop (guess who wanted to do that. . .) The ride home was rough for CJ, but we made it.

Nothing special for us for New Year's Eve. Cliff went to see FSU beat South Carolina in the Chic-fil-A Bowl (we don't have espn at home, so he went to BWW to watch it) and CJ and I just chilled at home and went to bed early.

CJ is a little spitfire. He loves his new train set and train table that we got him for Christmas. He spends a good majority of the day playing with it. He loves all things train, truck or tractor. His vocabulary is growing like crazy again. He is now putting a few words together to make his point. He is very convincing and if he doesn't get what he wants he throws a massive tantrum. Before the tantrum usually comes very cute begging of "please, please..." and he tries to bribe you with kisses. He also likes to ask you to follow him to the cupboard for constant snacks by asking "hand?" and pulling you into the kitchen. I think he's going to have a growth spurt soon.

Cliff is on winter break, but spends most of his time working on research. Nothing new with me. Hope the New Year brings happiness for all!
