Christmas Part I

My last day of school was December 18th and I was so ready to be out of there! I was very ready for a break!

On Sunday the 20th we went to Don and Carlene's for Christmas and Rachel really enjoyed herself. She got to ride on the golf cart with Grandpa Don and Daran and they saw some deer. We ate lunch and opened presents and Rachel was very sweet.

Then on Monday the 20th we went to see Santa. Last year she cried and wouldn't sit on his lap and told him not to touch her. It was hilarious. This year she sat right up there and told him what she wanted, a barbie bathtub, a barbie car, and a kids snuggie. Isn't the kids snuggie thing hilarious?

This picture isn't the greatest, but it shows that she was having fun with Santa.

After Santa, we went to buy a big TV. Daran had been talking about it forever and I was like just buy it already. So we got a 55 inch LCD TV and a blu ray player. It is awesome!

On Tuesday I got my hair cut and highlighted, and Rachel stayed with Nana and Elizabeth was there. They always have a great time together and she cried when we left.

On Wednesday, Shonda, Gary and Priceilla came over for dinner and to open presents. We don't get to see them very often, but the girls always have lots of fun together.

Christmas Program

Rachel's Christmas program was on December 11th. Daran and I took the day off work so we could also do some Christmas shopping. Rachel was an angel this year, and actually it is the third year in a row she has worn the angel costume that Mary made for her. It gets a little bit shorter every year. Last year at her Christmas program, when she saw me she started crying and didn't even perform with her class, so this year I was going to hide in the corner so she wouldn't see me. One of the moms came up and said that Rachel was already crying and sitting in her teacher's lap, so I thought, oh no, here we go again. Well suprisingly, she did really well. Her teacher said that she was one of the best singers, and that is why she is standing by Mary. She did a wonderful job! Afterwards, we went Christmas shopping and then out to eat lunch, so we had a very busy day.
