Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

First of all, let me begin by saying MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! I hope that Santa was as good to you as he was to me!!! :-)

I know, I am a little delayed on my blogging and I'm sorry! But it has flat been busy!!! Christmas was last Friday and I have been non-stop since then. Well, you know me better than that - that is a lie! But, I have been too lazy to get off of the couch and post about Christmas.
The Christmas holiday has been a blast! It was our first Christmas with Noah! He had such a good time. Our holiday started on Wednesday the 23rd with Mommy's family Christmas. According to them, we had an old fashion Christmas at Nina and Papaw's house. It was great cause I got to go! Daddy grilled pork chops while everyone else fixed the sides. I sat right next to Papaw in hopes of getting some treats - and I sure did! He gave me dessert! Yumm-o! I kept wanting to go outside and smell all of the wonderful smells that are at Nina and Papaw's house. My rope was not at their house, it was at my house in Daddy's truck. Oh well! Papaw took me outside to let me smell. Nope, no boogers!

Christmas Eve was a low key day! We enjoyed the day at home. I helped Mommy wrap presents! HEHE! My helping involves walking on the paper and crinkling it for Mommy. Noah helped too! Mommy, Daddy and Noah went to Christmas Eve service at CrossPoint. Momma Gena, GrandDanny, Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Paul and Jake went too. We went to dinner at Momma Gena's house that night and had a grand time! The family cooked steak, shrimp, baked potatoes, salad and bread for dinner. I begged and begged for a bite. The steak tasted great! Everyone opened a present of Christmas pj's . I did not get pjs, but I did get some great new toys. I already took out the innards of 2 of my new babies that night. Noah and Jake took a "swim" in Momma Gena's big bath tub. This was the first time that the boys have bathed together. I stayed away during bath time! I did not want to end up in the tub!

Santa came to my house that night! And he was great to Noah and me! We had so much fun playing with our new toys! Noah did not know what to think of all of the toys. Mommy said that he was in toy overload. I will post some pics at the bottom of my post! We spent the morning playing at home. We headed to lunch at Grandma Dison's house... yes, I got to go too! Cousin Daisy was there. She and I got into a little argument under the kitchen table during lunch. I showed my teeth to her and growled and she got put in timeout in the truck. HAHA! We both know that Grandma is the hand that feeds us at her house, and that is cause she does not remember giving us the food so she keeps giving it. We fought over who got to sit by Grandma. After a full tummy and presents at Grandma's , we headed off to Aunt Jennifer's house. Uncle Mike and Aunt Barbara were there when we arrived. I begged and begged and begged for a w-a-l-k to the doggie park. I barked all during presents! (I think I got on Mommy's nerves!) This was my first time to Aunt Jennifer's house since Woody passed away. It was a sollum moment. Presents were fun. Jake and Noah had a blast! After presents, Daddy gave in a took me out. We did not make it to the doggie park because the ground was so wet, but I was happy anyway! I quickly found my place on the couch next to Momma Gena. It was time for Mommy and Daddy to leave but I did not budge! GrandDanny said that is was fine for me to stay there while Mommy and Daddy headed to Nanny's house. I like going to see Nanny, but Buddy is there, and he scares the poop out of me every time (literally!!)

The whole family was at Nanny's house! Noah got to meet Uncle John for the first time. I understand that he played his annual "Charlie Brown" on the piano. Noah loved it!! Then Uncle John played in the floor with him. Sarah had a good time with Noah. He walked all over Nanny's house holding on to Sarah's fingers! Nanny did get Noah a Thomas the Train tent that now takes up our entire living room. I enjoy walking through it with Noah!

I was pooped out by the end of Christmas day! We all slept so good that night!

Daddy headed off with Momma Gena and GrandDanny to Uncle Brownie and Aunt Vicki's house on Monday for a boy fishing trip. (I am beginning to think that I will NEVER get to go there!) Daddy keeps promising me a fishing trip and there he goes without me! HUM! Anyway - not bitter!! BUT, Meghan came to stay at our house with Mommy and Noah. We also had a few other visitors those days. Angie, Amanda and Rydan came for a visit. We had a house full! I love it when Amanda comes because she is my buddy (aka: she feeds me!!) Rydan and Noah played well together. Rydan is older than Noah and played and little rougher than Noah does, but Noah held his own and did really well. Rydan kept Noah occupied so I didn't have to play for a couple of days! It was a nice break!

New Years Eve has come and gone and it is now 2010! Our NYE was NOT exciting. Well, I take that back. Mommy and Daddy had to go to a photo shoot so I lounged at home to recover from the hectic week. We headed off to Momma Gena's house for dinner. Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Paul are vacationing in Gatlinburg, so Jake is at Momma Gena's house this weekend. We had a great dinner and dessert. The boys had a good time playing, but they were too tired to stay up to see the ball drop. We were home by 9:30 and in bed at 10:30. Yea, I completely missed the "ringing in of the new year"! But that is ok!! I enjoyed the rest!!

I hope that you enjoy my Christmas picture... I've got more to come!
