Hi my name is Amy and I need to get better at this blogging thing. Apparently my new schedule has threw my blogging rhythm into a funk and I’m trying to dig myself out of it. I’ve come to realize that I’m so behind on lots of posts and pictures that I need to share. I mean this is my own little corner of the universe and where I share my stories and memories, so let’s go ahead and rewind a bit. Back to oh say…Christmas…before Christmas actually, December 18th to be exact, followed by the 25th 🙂
Before Charlotte left, we had to have a Christmas with Charlotte. Char and I deemed it a mandatory pajama party, so jams were worn by all. I promised my mom and dad I wouldn’t share pictures of them, but I still managed to get a few good shots of the girls…which I know is what everyone wants to see anyway!
Christmas Eve and Christmas morning were spent at my parents house! On the Eve, the boys were obsessed with a beer puzzle that my dad received as a gift. I’m not exaggerating when I say obsessed. They wouldn’t quit until Emily and I made them for our annual hot tub and Bailey’s time!
After church and breakfast, JP and I hopped in the car to go to College Station for a Gougler Christmas. We started with a late lunch at the Hilton followed by presents, mimosas, pajamas and Despicable Me 2 with the best parents and sister in love I could ever ask for!
I am too blessed by such wonderful family and friends. Family and friends who know me too well! Not pictured: my BOSU ball and mini crockpot! (I’m dying to wear that new Aggie dress for game day next year!}
Christmas 2013 was an amazing way to end the year. Christmas truly is my favorite time of year. It brings out the best in everyone and it brings family together. My love language is gift giving, so I love choosing and giving gifts to all of my loved ones: family, friends, puppies. It means a lot to me to see their faces and appreciation.
And just like that Christmas has come and gone and we’re nine days into January! Speaking of which…HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENNY BOY! I can’t believe my little brother is 22…welcome to the old people club, you’re no longer 21 🙂 Love you Benny!
