Christmas and Weekend Wrap-Up

Happy Monday Ladies!!!

Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful holiday.  It is hard to believe that Christmas is over!  This year has flown by and in just a few short days we will be welcoming the new year.  This family is READY for 2015! 

Every year for Christmas, my ex-husband comes into town to celebrate with us, and he usually stays with us at our house.  This year, he brought with him his girlfriend and her two daughters, so they stayed in a hotel, but were with us pretty much at all times, except during sleeping hours!  I was a bit nervous going into it this year, how would it be adding an entire new family into this mix, how would Christmas morning go, lots of people, lots of presents, lots of commotion!  Well, it all actually went pretty well.  On Christmas Eve, we ate, played, laughed and watched some Christmas movies.

Olivia and Kami playing on someone's iPhone. (this is the ONLY picture I took Christmas Eve)
After all the fun they headed back to their hotel, I got my kiddos into bed, and then we got ready for Santa to arrive!

I am sad and embarrassed to say that I did not take a single picture of my kiddos Christmas morning opening any of their gifts, like not one.  I was so caught up in the excitement of it all with them that I never even thought to grab my phone and snap some pics.  Epic mom fail...I know!!!!!
I did take this picture moments after Santa's arrival Christmas Eve.
And this picture of Olivia by her brand new bike, but seriously, that was it.
I love this boy
 Olivia was less than thrilled to have to leave the house Christmas night...she was tired and just wanted to stay home!!!
On Friday, we all slept in, which was super nice...we all needed some rest!  Kenny came that morning and took all the kiddos out for a few hours!   It was a much needed break for my hubby and I, we did a little shopping, made a few returns, and then had a lunch date...awesome day!  Friday night we grilled out and just hung out, watching some college football, playing some games, low key perfect night.  Their dad left to go back home that night, so we all said our goodbyes and off they went!
Saturday morning, we woke up and headed out with the two little boys for some more shopping.  They are super fun to hang out with, they make us laugh!!!!
First stop...the Golf store...the boys LOVED it here!
Getting in some "free" practice
Lunch at Steak 'N hubby building the paper car!
For $1, Jack will eat just about anything..he said this pepper wasn't too bad!
AJ...well...just being AJ!!!
After lunch we headed to get a new computer was running SO slow so my hubby got me a brand new one...and I am one happy girl!  After a day of running around, we headed home, picked up a bit, and ate some leftover PF Changs for dinner...FABULOUS!!!!! 
Sunday was a rainy day here, and it was the perfect day to hang out in our PJ's all day and just watch some football!  After a very busy week of last minute shopping, and the craziness of Christmas, it was so nice to just relax and not have to do anything!  We are a HUGE football loving family over here, so we really enjoy just sitting all together watching all the games! 
Olivia was the only one who had any "plans" on Sunday, she went with two of her BFF's to Build-A-Bear, she was super excited to spend some of her Christmas money!
She was thrilled with her new Hello Kitty!!
 I am so glad my kiddos have another whole week off from school, I just wish my hubby could be home hanging out with us too!!!
I hope you all have the BEST Monday!!!!
