Kody and I celebrated our little Christmas on the 26th since we both had the day off. I slept in and he got up and made a huge breakfast that was so good I have been eating the leftovers all week. He’s such a good cook! After we ate we opened the little gifts we had for each other. We didn’t feel the need to buy much since we get so much from our families and we both are wanting a lens and gun, respectively. We’ll just buy both of those things after Christmas! I didn’t think I would have anything to open, other than the candy I had already bought and put in my own stocking, but I was surprised!
Kody got me 2 new praise CDs, the soundtrack to Courageous and then the David Crowder Band. I love them! He also got me all kinds of fancy candy, including different flavors of truffles from Grapevine! He does that every year and picks out the flavors I will like and they wrap them in the prettiest package. He was also thinking and got me some new gloves that will work with my phone! :)
I actually got him 2 things….a balance bracelet he’d mentioned he’d like to try and an old city parking meter. That one sounds weird, but we’ll get a stand for it and put it in our basement. I think it’s really neat, plus it’s a piece of West Plains history. He loved it! Excuse the pictures, we look rough…traveling got the best of us! Santa Paws even visited the boys. They both got new bones and a toy for outside. They were so tired from their stay in Jackson they literally laid around all day with their bones.
We got a lot done on Monday. After we finished with gifts, we started in on laundry and putting stuff away. Kody cleaned out drawers to make room for his new clothes and we tried everything on. We washed our new sheets, flipped the mattress, and put on our new memory foam topper—which we LOVE. Kody set up the new tv so we would be ready come bedtime. We worked hard all day. I’m going to deep clean the house this weekend and maybe next Monday on our day off we can be lazy! ;)
We both talked on Monday how this could possibly be our last Christmas with just the two of us and no mention of a baby. We’re very hopeful by next Christmas we either have one HERE with us or on the way. Keep us in your prayers! :) We had a great Christmas and little break. It is nice just being the two of us because we call the shots and do whatever we want. And we know that will change someday so we’re enjoying it while we can! HA!
