We will go to Angelo Thursday morning and stay til Christmas Eve night then we will return home and be home Christmas morning. We will leave early after presents here then we will travel to Brackettville I think we will leave on Thursday or Friday to return home so we can have a day or 2 to recover before Daniel has to return to work. I love family but I am sure I will be worn out traveling with 2 very little ones is pretty difficult sometimes.

The Earth lost a great one

My great grandmother has gone home to the Lord. She was 91 years old and the last granny I had on this earth. Although the funeral was hard it was also a joyous occasion because I know that granny is now not suffering and is rejoicing with those that have gone on before her. This includes my Granny Jones a wonderful Godly lady whom I love very dearly.
I got to see a large number of my extended family whom I have not seen in a very long time. I did not hold Aaron much during lunch because he was busy getting to know the rest of the family.
Granny will be greatly missed and loved forever. She was a great lady and she left a wonderful legacy with over eight great-great grandchildren. I am very greatful that I got to come and see my family and even more greatful that Daniel went with me. I love you Daniel thanks for being there for me.

The longer version

So any way I am getting a little tired of being prego and uncomfortable I mean it is hard when you can not sleep for more than an hour at a time. So I had more contractions more intense and closer together so we went back to the hospital. After having contractions all night well from 10:30pm until 7:30am they quit and I made no progress so they sent me home again. I was very sad and exhausted since I only slept for 45 minutes I felt so bad for my mom she had been home for only 2 hours when I called and it is a four hour trip to the hospital. Kody stayed up til mom got there and that was just about 4:30am. She can work miracles since everyone including Adam and Kari had been trying for hours. Any way I want to extend my sincere apologies to Adam and Kari and mom for coming all that way for a false alarm. Also thank you so so so so so so so so much you made the whole thing so much easier on Daniel and I we really are fortunate to have you. Anyway so when they sent us home they gave me an ambien sleeping pill so I could sleep through any mild contractions that stuff is way powerful. On the way home I had double vision and everything I don't even remeber going to bed. If it had not been for Daniel and Mom being here with Kody things could have been bad. Any way so here I am still Prego and having contractions from time to time. The doctor came and they have scheduled me for induction on Tuesday if I do not go into true labor before then. I am hoping that Friday night will be the night since the weekend would work out well for everyone. Please pray that I will have patience and that this baby will be here soon and healthy. Love to you all-- Sunni

Almost a Baby

Sunni was having contractions last night. They were pretty strong and were about 15 minutes apart. We went to Brownwood and I got excited. The contractions stopped after about an hour, so they sent us home. I only called Sunni's mom, because she has so far to travel. I'm glad I didn't call everyone. So, that is the latest.

Life goes on

So we went to the football game on Friday. Although I had a pretty good time since it is football season we lost 12-49. It was wild one of our players and his counter part in an on field arguement got tossed. And then late on a kick off our team just stood there and watched as commanche recovered it right in front of them on like the 15. Any way I was shocked apparently he thought it was a punt and therefore not a live ball. Oh well I hope it goes better next week especially since it is homecoming.
I also had a doctors appoinment on Friday and found out we are having a baby _____ yep we still don't know boy or girl. I kind of think it is a boy, but we don't KNOW. I also found out that my Blood Pressure is on the rise. When I was prego with Kody My BP is why they enduced and he was born at 37 weeks and 6 days. The doc said that it is very likely that my BP could be worse with this one... So I have to go back in 10 days for a BP test. Daniel is going to go with because if it is elevated they will admit me for tests. I am really worried about all of this because if it gets bad they will admit me for complete bed rest and I don't know what I will do with Kody. I don't want to be away from him and I still have five weeks to go. Oh well life goes on. Please pray that everything will be fine or they will send me home with limited bed rest so I can still keep Kody. Kody is trying to walk and will soon have more bumps and bruises since he is not really good at it yet. He tends to lunge when he gets tired of walking and lands on his chest and sometimes his face. Silly baby. Well, that is it for the update.

All the loot

Here is a picture of everything after everyone arrived and before we made a mess and cut the cake.
Kody is growing like crazy and so is this little one. I have another doctors appointment tomorrow. I am truely hoping we will find out if Kody will have a brother or sister. I am super exausted. After sitting through 3 Jr. High football games 7th A won 7th and 8th combo B lost 8th A won. The boys looked really good tonight. I am very tired so I am going to hit the hay good night all.

Kody's Birthday Party

Here are 2 pics from Kody's Party. The first one is before everyone and some of his gifts arrived. And the other is after Kody Dug into his little football cake we made just for him. He is one today and will soon have four teeth. He is learning to crawl away from his daddy when he says, "I'm gonna get you." He is so so cute He ate too much cake a got a ton of great stuff. He had a good time and is playing with all of his new stuff everyday. As for the new little one I once announced that it is a boy, however the doctor is unsure of our new babies gender and it maybe a surprise until the day it is born. I will be happy boy or girl. Enjoy the pictures I will add more later. Good night

Saturday, September 02, 2006


We are having Kody's B-day party on Sunday. I am pretty excited. I am a little nervous about it because it is so hard to keep the house clean with my little kido. Not to mention that we are pretty broke right now so that makes things a little more difficult. Oh well life goes on. We got a nice new dining table it is real pretty and I like it alot. I will blog later about the party maybe even include some pics.

sippy Cup

Kody is now using a sippy cup all the time except at night and nap time he really wants a bottle. He uses a sippy cup with a soft silicon Straw. He really likes it because he likes to keep his hands free to get into stuff. This way he can drink and get into stuff at the same time since he does not have to tilt his cup. His favorite drink is Gatorade Rain Berry flavor, the purple one. Of course it is always half gatorade half water. Well it is late and my eyes are burning and baby Aaron is being still for the moment so I am going to bed. Good night all sleep well.

Almost 7 months along

Man I feel so pregnant I am seven months along and it is getting harder to exit the furniture every day. I am getting so tired that this is all I have for tonight because I would like to go to bed.

Kody today

No headache today

Well all the cabinets in the kitchen are baby proofed, but Kody still empties every shelf he can reach. He is trying so hard to walk and he is pulling up on everything. He likes to climb and tries to climb everything he pulls up on. Here is a picture of Kody that I took today so you can see how much the little monster has grown. And Jan here is a pic just for you as well it was taken 3 months ago while were packing on his rocking horse you bought him.

Headache city

Man I am getting tired of migraines. I have had one every day for the last 2 days. Man they are killing me. I don't remember having these with Kody and all you can have is tylenol. Anyway that is how life goes I guess. I just hope I don't have any more of these things.

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

It's a boy

Long time no post I know. I sometimes forget about this page but life is slowing down a little and becoming more routine so maybe I will have time to post again. Kody is going to have a little brother we are pretty sure his name will be Aaron however we have yet to find common ground on the middle name. Kody is getting so big and trying to walk and talk. We are having a house warming and birthday party for Kody on the Sunday of Labor day weekend. I just hope that I have most of the house finished by then. I am so tired that all I want to do when Kody sleeps is sleep and then when he is awake it is so hard to get anything done since he gets into everything and I mean everything. Oh well life goes on. more later I hope.

Both Babies are growing

Thank goodness Kody is still the biggest baby I have unless you count his Daddy when he is tired(JK) :). I think Daniel is the best Daddy in the world he really loves his little boy and it shows. I am starting to grow as well and the little one is too since I can feel the baby almost every other day now. Crazy to think in a few months I will have as many kids as my mom, my sis, and my sis-in-law. Crazy I say Crazy. As for Kody's price tags he is priceless however 2.50 was the closest price to 30billion in the store and perfect for taking pictures with. :)

Adam Graduated from ASU this weekend Kudos to Adam!

I guess this is all for now enjoy your reading or better yet get back to work.

Great Easter Weekend

30 Minutes is a long time to play laser tag in a hot room. But it was fun Daniel and I and his brother and his wife went to Kerrville and played laser tag. It was a ton of fun we started out playing every man or woman for themselves, but I soon noticed that Adam and Kari had teamed up so... Daniel and I teamed up as well. Needless to say we beat the pants off the novices. We all had a great time and spent a silly amount of money on those dumb arcade games that just give tickets with very little skill involved.

We then went to the movies my biggest worry was for getting home to pick up the Kody from the pastor's house. They usually stay up pretty late but Kody has an away of making you see how truly tired you really are. Any way so we went to see Scary Movie 4, to sum it up in one word terrible. They took all the funny stuff and mucked it up by going to far with there jokes and all of the truly funny scenes we had already seen in the previews. Oh well...

We then went out to eat, I really just wanted to get something to go and get home to Kody, but... Daniel wanted to take our guests to the really nice Mamacitas good food good atmosphere and all that. We have been there a hundred times so I was not overly impressed. We then headed home to the sleep fighter.

Sunday rolled around sometime while we were all still up so we went to bed. Kody slept all night. The next morning I got up and started the roast and fixings’ so we would have something to eat after church we went to Sunday school and what seems to be trend when we have company we were late. The topic of the lesson was how the resurrection has directly impacted your life. Kari was not feeling well so Adam took her home before church the choir program was beautiful. When we got home Kari was asleep and Adam was playing X-box I went back to work on lunch while Kody slept in his crib. Daniel helped a bit before joining Adam in a game of Baseball. We ate lunch around 1 and then watched Twisted I missed the last half as I was trying to sleep since I have insomnia and really needed the rest …. No luck.

Around 4 we went to play tennis no breeze and around 100 outside after walking to the courts we played a few games and decided the river was a better place to be. We went to the river and had a great time Kody is water baby we strapped him into his carrier thing and he played and played in the water. We were in the water for about 2 hours or so when the sun started heading down and Kody only fussed for one minute the whole timer he is such a water baby. So… Great weekend!!

I have noticed...

That with the first pregnancy I was a bit scatter brained. Well if I thought that was bad now there are days I am not even sure I have a brain. I love my babies but I wish they would leave me a little bit of memory.
Kody ios growing so fast it is amazing. He reaches now for me and others it is so cute if you have empty arms you are his target. He jabbers alot and when he is not crying he is smiling. Babies are truely amazing. Kody is truely my boy he loves Mac and Cheese and he is really good at chewing the Mac before he swallows it.We are going to try little peices of over cooked carrot tonight to see how he does with that. He is really getting big. more later ASTA...

Trying not to get too Excited.

Kody has slept through the night two nights in a row. I am trying so hard not to get to excited bout that but My baby is sleeping though the nigh:). If it were ot for the neighbors rooster that positions it's self right out side Kody window at 5 am to wake up the neighborhood I think I would not have to check on him at all til 8 am in when he is ready to get up and face the day. He is waking up happier now that he is getting a good 7-8hours at night. Needless to say so am I. It is so so great. Asta...

Kody has gotten where he wantseverything your hands are on that includes the keyboard. He is getting really big. He is over 16 lbs now and man I can feel it.

The Precious has PNEUMONIA

We spent all day on Monday at the emergency room in Kerrville we got there at 4:30 and stayed until around 9:15. It was a very long day and the little guy was running a high fever and fussing a lot. So anyway we get there and wait till around 7:30 when the doctor finally comes in. He asks what the problem is and we tell him that Kody is running a high fever and it just started today. What is it with doctors you come in the day you get sick and they are like “Oh, just today” you come in a couple days later and they are like “You should have come in sooner” I mean I think what they really want to say is I wish you people would just suffer at home. Any way so I say all the books say to bring your baby to the ER if they are running 102 consistently. And he says “I wish they would not say that.” When I think he is really saying look another over protective stupid parent. So then he says your baby seems fine, except for the fever so we will do a flue swab and a chest x-ray and then you can go.
So an hour or so later all of this finally takes place. The doctor comes in and says “Your son has Pneumonia; it’s a good thing you brought him in.” I was thinking look a doctor with his fat foot is his mouth. Oh well Kody is better today and on powerful antibiotics so I hope he just gets better and better it has been a hard couple of nights. ASTA….

Friday, March 10, 2006

And then there were TWO!!

I found out day before yesterday that my six month old is going to be a big brother. Talk about a big suprise and I just thought I was tired now ohh well God has a plan. more later....

Despite Food Poisoning

Well they are now married Kari is fully recovered and they are honey mooning. I will post pictures later so you can see a little of the wedding.
So we had the rehersal at 6:30 Friday evening and then rehersal dinner at Zentner's Daughters it was great. We went back and decorated til like 11 or more then went to Walmart for a towel for my mom's baby Squirrel Squeeker. Then we finally went to bed aroung 1:30 ish since my Dad was still reading with the light on. Then at around 6 Kody woke up feeling bad and nothing made him happy so we went to Walmart to get him some meds we did not get much sleep. At 9a.m. we went back to the church to decorate. We were there til 2:30pm trying to finish up thank goodness JoLee showed up because her help certainly hurried the process along. Then we rushed off to get dressed and back to the wedding at 4. We made it back to the church at 3:55 and Paula was not there yet my family went and found a seat and Kody and I waited to be ushered in the wedding started around 4:30 ish. So everything was kind of rushed. We got to the reception and it was beautiful... and ate a little Kari I think got one bite of food. The had their Dance did the Bouque and Garter in a 40 minute span and then we all threw our bird seed and they got into the carriage and rode away to live happily ever after. Except having to stop back by the church and pick up Kari's purse then they left for the bed breakfast.

It is never a quick trip

It never fails if I am going to make a quick down to Brackett Kody and I end up spending the night. So Monday after work Kody and I headed out to the B-Town the trip is a little over an hour if you drive it at a reasonable speed. Any way so we get there and I remember that my tires are kind of old so... I check them out and I am about 50 miles from a blowout on one of the tires. So anyway i wait til Daddy gets in to double check my analysis of the situation. By the time he gets it in it is 10 til 7 and all the tire places close at you guessed it, 7. So i can not get tires til the next day and since it is 58 miles home that is out of the question. So I send the night and got to Delrio the next day and get four new tires. Yep that was so much fun. Asta...

Crazy Weekend…

We went up to San Angelo Friday evening because Adam and Kari are getting married a week from Saturday and Adam wanted Daniel to help him move stuff. So on Saturday Daniel Adam and Miles Moore moved all the stuff from Kari’s to the storage so Adam could come live there after the wedding and bring some of his stuff. After that Daniel, Adam, Me, Miles and Miles wife Jennifer headed with the last load to storage and out eat at Franco’s. On the way there Adam had his window down and was yelling things like hey you what’s up to people outside. I told Daniel you need to roll up his window and lock it and then I heard something hit the side of the car. Adam said, “My phone.” He had dropped his cell out the window I said we need to go get it so we changed lanes and Miles was following in his truck with the couch and stuff. Any way so we pulled into Pop eyes on Bryant and Daniel got out and ran for the phone Miles pulled up and said he ran over it. Daniel found all of the parts and the phone still works all but the camera. Crazy, the moral to the story buy an Audiovox phone if you are going to drop it out the window while driving.
So then we made it to Franco’s and while we were eating an acquaintance of Miles comes in. Miles starts telling us about a few weeks past when he was backing out of his spot at home and this guy comes cutting through the lot to avoid a traffic light and Miles hits him. Not Miles fault because the guy is totally breaking the law. So Miles says he has not talked to him since. Well we are all sitting there enjoying our lunch and great conversation when the dude comes up to Miles and starts up a conversation just to tell him later that he has an estimate and will bring it by Miles house. AS IF MILES SHOULD PAY FOR THE DAMAGE. Even our lunch was crazy.
Then we went and picked up Joe, Daniel and Adam’s dad, to take him to be fitted for a tux for the big day. After that we then go back to his place where Adam sets up his digital camera for him. We stay over there for almost an hour before we take Adam shopping for his wedding present since we decided he could pick it out. Everything is so busy that we don’t get back until like 6:30 or 7pm to the house and we are all too tired to go out so I go to the store and get hamburger fixing and Daniel cooks supper. Daniel and Adam play a little Xbox and then Kari and Adam go to Wal-mart around 10:30 Daniel is tired and took a benadryl and falls asleep during Ocean’s Twelve while Adam and Kari are gone. They get back around 1 at 1:30 Kari tells me that they would really like to make to class in the morning and that after church we will go eat and then go to her wedding shower. Anyway at around 3:30 Kari starts throwing up I check on her and she says it hurts but she feels better and is going back to bed. Well she was not better and was sick all night Adam took her to the emergency room at 7 in the morning. Kari is admitted to the hospital for food poisoning. She stayed over night last night and maybe there again tonight. So all in all it was a crazy weekend.

Friday, February 24, 2006

Ahh it is beautiful

Well the brides bouque for Kari and Adam's wedding is finished and it is awesome we are taking it to Kari tonight. I can not wait to see what Kari thinks.
We were up til late working on flowers and there is still alot to be done.
Kody has his first cold so I am going to take him to the Doc today I just hope that he can help I sure miss my sleep. He is really cute and wearing his Hawaii wear today even though the weather is not appropriate. The picture is side ways but oh well here he is

Freaked out

Well I had a true freak out yesterday. Kody was lying on the couch in his Boppy pillow you know the one that is supposed to keep them from rolling off. Any way he rolled off the couch and hit his head on the table. I was sure he would die of course. Any way he quit crying in like 10 seconds and was so happy for the undivided attention. I on the other hand cried for an hour called my mom she made me feel a little better and I decided that no mom is perfect. This did not change the fact that I truely wanted to be. I walked up to tennis practice to find Daniel and beg his forgiveness. Instead he said Sunni don't worry about it he is fine look at him, but of course this did not help me. Then Sara called ansd after I cried to her told her the whole story she reminded me that kids are resilient and that he and I were both fine. This actually helped and I quit crying Oh well so I survived the big total freak out and Kody does not even have a bruise. Crazy is it not.

Valentine Eve

Man what a night last night Kody was trying a new food it was Gerbers oatmeal pears and cinnamon sound ok right. Well any way about 9pm Kody started throwing a fit and only wanted me this was bad because we were at Grammy's house and Grammy loves to hold him. I was so embarrassed because every time I walked out of the room he screamed bloody murder. Any way sometimes at home he cries until he gets me but it was never this bad. Any way this went on till after 9:30 So I took him to give him a bath. Unlike Kody he even whined and whimpered through the bath. As soon as he got out the screaming continued. Kody screamed and Screamed the only time he quit was when he fell into exhaustion and then when he woke he cried some more. Nothing and no one made him happy. Finally around 12 he was still crying but sleeping every 10 minutes My mom noticed that he was broken out. So then we started to think what had he had today he had not had before the answer was Cinnamon He cried on and off all night and would not take formula at all just cereal or mama milk. He is better today but formula is still out and his face is still red and bumpy. Not to mention a little tired too. All in all it was a very eventful night and one with little sleep so I am here at work working the afternoon instead of the the way babies are cute but they are gross too. Asta.... Oh Yah happy VALENTINE'S Day!!!

Kody Just His 1st community bath

He is sleeping in his own bed at Grammy's house and I am visiting with Jania who is in Alaska. She is a little over 3 months Prego with her second child. Life seems to be going ok she is living in very small cabin that her parents own for while. It is very small and a little rustic I guess is the best way to describe. Her husband will return home sometime in March because he is going to training in Florida.
Kody is really growing.
Jania was just telling me that the coldest it has been is 20 below can you imagine 20 below. She has actually now moved to Base housing in Elmendor, Alaska in a nice house. It takes almost a week to drive to where Jania is. Well this is all for now I will blog more later. Asta.....

Cappaccino Yummm

My pastor's wife is making cappaccino and he brought me a cup. It is exactly what I needed. My office smells great too I really love working here this is the only job I have ever held that I truly love. It is still hard to get up in the morning but coming to work is not the reason. I loved teaching but the politics of school really drove me crazy. Here I just have to do my job and everyone is happy that someone is doing it. It is also great that the rotten boy gets to come with me to work sometimes it is quite a henderance but he is good company and so cute and people come to the office just to see him.
I would venture to say he is the most popular Kody at church nevermind that he is the only Kody.
If you get a chance please check out my sister's blog she just started blogging but I think she is doing a great job and you can see a pic of her family. Well that is all for now except I am going to take a nap today. 3 nights of little sleep are really getting to me I wish teething only happened during the day time. Asta....

Very little sleep

Well last night was a very bad night for the Kody I got him to sleep at 10:30 (miracle) He woke up at 11:30 and I feed and rocked and he went back to sleep. He woke up at 1 feed rocked and back to sleep. He woke up at 2:30 this time feeding and rocking only made him cry he woke his Daddy with this mess at 3am. I tried everything changing the diaper rocking feeding nothing worked at 4am Daniel started Daddy dancing Kody quit crying but this only worked as long as Daniel was dancing. 4:30 Daniel told me to go to bed. At 5:00 Daniel came to bed with out Kody he was finally asleep. We slept til 6:30 when Kody started up again. I went and got him feed and rocked back to sleep the alarm went off at 7:45 and of course woke Kody I rocked him back to sleep then I got up around 8:40 Kody slept til we left for work and woke up when we got here. Any way it was a very long night. Kody has only had one 15 min nap so far today I guess he thinks he is in college and does not need sleep. I just hope he lets me get a nap today I feel sorry for Daniel cause he has to work a full day. I would say we will just go to bed early but that will not work because of the little baby. He has been playing on his tummy and is now tired of that so I will have to go more later. Asta...

24 years old

Well it feels alot like 23 but with a baby. Anyway I had a good b-day Daniel brought me lunch to work and everyone at church sang me happy b-day.

We went to San Angelo this weekend and stayed up to late and got up to late everyday. We saw the Brothers Grimm, good one in my opinion. We played Scene it that was alot of fun as well. Daniel bought me a new ring it looks like this. I also got a manicure since I got a new ring of course.
Kody really likes carrots almost as much as bananas He has gone back to the old school passy since I have lost all of his other ones. It is a amazing how those things go missing. He is a little grouchy and tired today but I am not suprised. Any way it was a good weekend all in all even though my big mouth got me into trouble again and I hurt my sis-in-laws feelings.
Yesterday was busy we came in from San Antonio at 12pm and I made Daniel Sandwiches that he woofed down and then headed off to work. Then I spent the next hour and half trying to get Kody to go to sleep with out a binky, not something I want to do again any time soon. Then Daniel got home and brought me the binky out of the car but it was too late Kody was done with that napping stuff even though he only slept for 1 and 1/2 hours and usually gets a least 2. So then we relaxed for a little while and then rushed out the door to meet everyone for my b-day supper. We went to Casa Falcon in NC they usually have a buffet but it was not on and I thought Daniel was going to pass out or cry but he survived. Kody set with Grammy, Aunt Jo, Aunt Kay and Uncle Joe. He smiled at Aunt Jan while she ate her supper I think he was very well behaved. Until........... the trip home he cried all the way nothing made him happy then he cried from 10:15 til 11 nothing made him happy all in all it was another restless night for me. But we all had a good time and cheese cake so it is all good. more later

Long Time no post

I really don't have a good excuse for not posting. Except that I started a website for our church and started a monthly newsletter as well. So I have been a little busy but both are now up and running and starting from scratch is the hardest part.
Kody is now 4 and 1/2 months old at his 4 month check up he weighed in at 13lb 6 oz and was 2ft 1 inch so he is indeed grown a lot since he was 6 lb 3 oz and 20in long on his birthday. He has started solid foods and he is my boy he loves bananas best so far. He seems to have a sweet tooth even though I still can not see his teeth but I can feel them. His eyes are still blue so keep your fingers crossed I think it is going to last. He slept through the night the other night of course this was only after 3 yes 3 really bad nights and last night was really bad, making up for the one good one you know. He really loves to be kissed and always laughs when you tickle his feet. And finally he is the number1 sleep fighter of the world.
My birthday is tomorrow I will be 24. Why is it that the older you get the less excited you get about your b-day I mean I should just be glad I have made it this far but to me it is just another day no big plans or anything. Sometimes I think I would have made a great Jahovah's witness since I don't celebrate much except the fact that I believe a lot of their beliefs are way off base of course. Any way enough rambling
We are going to go to San Angelo this weekend so stay tuned for more picks of Kody with his family and I will soon post picks of Kody with Papa and his Grammy from our trip to see him last week. I can not wait to see how much my nephews have grown. Devon is a really getting big he is not a little boy any more and Tyler is really getting tall. It is amazing to me that some day that will be Kody that I am watching grow up and stuff. More later

Christmas continues..

We hurried back to the Rock to pick up gifts and church and all that jazz. We were supposed to meet Mom and some sibs in NC to eat lunch with Papa but the restaurant that said they were going to open was closed so we met Mom any way and headed to Vance to visit Granny's grave site. It was really good that we did that and it helped Mom get through the holidays easier. We ate microwave pizzas and some bbq sandwiches. Then went to see Papa to our surprise some of the family came anyway and we all had a very nice visit while eating chocolate layered dessert. We then went to Brackettville where I learned that my mom over did it big time this Christmas. There were enough gifts to surround my Dad as he slept on the floor. It reminded me of when I was little and my grandmother went overboard and gifts trailed out from all 360 degrees of the tree. We all made out like bandits. The following day we had our traditional family meal. I even stayed one extra day to sleep in I got up with Kody and handed him to his Grammy and went back to bed til around 11. Then more family came over and we decided to go to a movie so the 9 of us Mom, JoLee, Des, Daylon, Kody, Me, Daniel, Kitten and Patty went to see Naria in Mom's 15 passenger van. I had already seen it but it is still the best movie I have seen in a very long time. We had a fabulous Christmas except that Kody started teething on Sunday evening and has been pretty cranky about it all.
