My laptop is back and in working order. !!!!! Which means everyone at my house is incredibly happy. Well, mostly I am. I'm so glad to have my music and my pictures and be able to get on whenever I want. Ahhh... sweet freedom. So, there will be many posts coming soon. I hope you're ready.

Merry Christmas, Daddy!

You are seeing these pictures correctly. My dad did receive two blow guns and one Nerf dart gun for Christmas. Over Thanksgiving, we were at my grandparents house when my dad was talking about how much he missed his old dart gun that he left in Connecticut. So I thought, "What a great Christmas present! I'll surprise him!" So I painstakingly took all the measures to make sure this was a surprise. I ordered it online and gave my parents strict instructions to not look at my bank account. I had it shipped to my best friend's hosue. He had NO idea!!! And Christmas morning when he opened it was SO great. Then we get to my mom's family's house and he gets a Nerf gun. Funny. He got one last year, too. But then we get to his parents' house. Culp (my grandfather) had also heard him talking over Thanksgiving. He also surprised him with a dart gun. So now he has two. Haha, what are the chances? And he loves them. Bought a storage container for them and everything.

I just thought, this might have been a sermon illustration somewhere down the line. So if he tells it, laugh hard and act surprised. I don't want to ruin his fun.

Christmas and other things

** Ok, so disclaimer: Blogger is freaking out! Actually, I just don't know how to work it. It now uploads pictures in a weird way so that I can't actually see the pictures but instead see all the internet lingo. Anyone know how to fix this? Laura, if you do, you can just go on in and fix it. Haha. **

Christmas was great this year!! It's weird to be asking for things like towels and a metronome. What's even weirder is actually wanting those things. But it was great all around.

We gave Nanny a bracelet with all the birthstones of her kids and grandkids on it. She loved it. Culp got his usual shirts.

My gag gift from Karenna. It's broken up gnomes in a jar. I'm pretty sure only Sooner people will understand this.

On Christmas Eve we had our annual Wii Bowling Tournament with my cousins. Girls vs Boys. I think the boys won this year, but I'm not sure.

I'm basically my mom just 27 years younger.

And all of us together.

So Christmas was good. Next post I'll tell you what all my dad got. Haha. I think you'll be surprised, well, maybe not. Hope everyone is having a great week back at school and work!!
