Coco and I had the hardest time going to sleep on Christmas Eve. We finally went to sleep about 1am and then she woke up her Daddy before 4am and they tried to get me up. I was having none of that. I woke up at 6:30 and woke her up.
We decided that we would only get her 3 gifts to open in reference to the 3 gifts that Jesus received. Well as a Momma I had the hardest time with that. SO I found a huge stocking for some some small things and clothes.
Her big gift was a trampoline. It was to big and heavy to bring into the house so I cut out a picture from the sale ad and put it into a jewelry box. She was a little confused but over the moon when she realized what it meant.
Daddy opening his most precious gift. A coupon book handmade by Coco with lots of foot rubs and dog feedings.
Us at Mom's for lunch. We had a wonderful time with my side of the family. Lots of good ole traditional Christmas dinner foods.
My nephew Dallas and his children Kaylee and Ethan. My most favorite little people in the world.
Coco opening her blanket of Jacob from Aunt Tammy. This was the biggest hit. She made sure to sleep with it last night.
Mimi was very happy with the tie blanket Coco made for her and Pa.
We will be celebrating Christmas with Scotts family sometime this week. I love it when we get to spread it out so that we can enjoy it a little longer.
We still need to do some touch up painting and install the vanity when it is finished. We had to order a custom cabinet to fit our plumbing. It worked out better and we will get a little bit bigger one and a cabinet over the toilet.
I am loving it so far. The new tub is not really bigger than the old one but it seems alot bigger when you are showering!
So grateful to be home again.
Very THANKFUL for wonderful In-laws that put up with us and helped with the work for 3 weeks!
We are very BLESSED
We are working on putting up some Christmas tonight. I am disappointed that I am not putting all our trees and decor up. I don't want to put it all out just to take it down in a couple of weeks. I will be working on making it feel more like Christmas this week.
Boy I will tell you, I sure didn't think this bathroom was going to take over 2 weeks to complete.
I was so excited when I came home today.
There is tile on the walls and floors. PTL
Don't worry I am not having red paint around my tub. LOL
This is a water proofing thing he painted on before the tile.
He left the bottom so that the top could dry and wouldn't slip down .
The guy that is doing our tile has been doing it for 40+ years, he might be a little slower but when he is done it will be wonderful.
the floor in the process. I am loving the tile I picked out.
Today we had our office Christmas lunch. We played White Elephant and look what I came home with!
Won't that come in handy cleaning my new tile (and my old)...
So happy with it.
Tomorrow begins our Basketball season. For the next 10-12 weeks our Saturdays will be spent in a gym somewhere watching Coco play ball. She made the A team.
It amazes me her love for sports. I was not a sporty kind of girl but I am glad that she is. I will spend every weekend doing this so that she can play as long as she gives it 100% and she always does. I truly believe that team sports teaches children so many things. Especially with her being an only child.
