NYE 2008

We decided to stay home for NYE. We've had a lot of house guests lately and have been traveling quite a bit for the holidays, it was just time to spend a low key night at home. Damon invited a friend over and Terry cooked crab legs for everyone.....and by crab leg, I mean CRAB LEG. These things were HUGE! The boys devoured them! Happy New Year!

On another note, I finally saw TWILIGHT! It was amazing and did not disappoint, I can't wait for the rest of the movies (and to finally read the 4th book)! Heather and I finally got our schedules to match and met at the was PACKED and we both had to park in the last row....this seemed a little weird because it was a Tuesday night and it was COLD. What the !?@#$ is going on!?! Certainly the rush of love-struck, vampire-wanna-be teens was well over??? I ask the lady in front of me and she responds, "It's BYOB night." My new favorite theatre...Bring Your Own BEER night?!? No such luck....Bring Your Own BUCKET night. Fifty cent popcorn in whatever size bucket you bring (for the record, so not worth the lines and the chaos). However, it was well worth the humor. Heather passed a lady, gasp (loudly) and said, "I'm pretty sure that's a feed bucket and Guthrey's dad uses them on the farm. Seriously, did you see that feed bucket?" Classic. 

I'm baaaaack!

Hmmm, where do I start?!?

Terry's mom : Surgery went great, the cancer has not spread to her lymph nodes and she'll find out early January if she has to have chemo. All great news considering the circumstances! Thanks for all your prayers!

One Christmas down, one to go. We opened our family presents the Eve of Christmas Eve. I got home from work one day with a few boxes marked on the outside with instructions (see photo). Terry did a great job taking hints this year and picking out favorite was probably a silver ring, I love it. As for Damon, you could see Damon calculate in his head all the presents that were on his list that he hadn't gotten yet. He wasn't complaining, but I could see it in his face...there were some others that he REALLY wanted. I reminded him later that he still had 3 more Christmases to go to! His favorite presents from us were his Iowa sweatshirt and a bluetooth headset for his PS3. We were with Terry's mom's side of the family Christmas Eve and had a blast at his cousin's house. Great food, cold beer, lots of fun. Terry got the "iMAgiNiff" game that night and everyone had a great time playing it. It's pretty hilarious. Terry's sister's son, Kaden, is obsessed with super heros. He got a Batman costume on Christmas Eve and didn't take it off...he still had it on the next day! How cute to be that excited about a Christmas present and not care what anyone thinks about how you look!

Christmas Day was at Terry's mom's...yep, she just got home and had a house full, but I don't think she would have it any other way.

We missed Christmas Saturday with Terry's dad....the weather was horrible Saturday morning and it probably worked out fine because I felt horrible too.
