Last week of vacation

On Monday we went to see Princess and the Frog. Rachel did okay, but I don't think she was really interested in the movie. She wanted to go to the bathroom and sit on my lap most of the movie. She didn't really pay attention, but I liked the movie. I thought it was cute.

On Tuesday we met Nana, Papa , Elizabeth and Benjamin at the bouncy place in Lakeline Mall. It was very crowded, so we didn't stay too long. We also ate lunch there and then we came home.

On Wednesday we went out to eat lunch with Nana at Mimi's and did a little shopping.

On Thursday Nana and Papa took care of Rachel for a few hours while I graded papers, and then we went to HEB. It was New Year's Eve, but we didn't really do anything exciting.

Christmas Part II

On Christmas Eve, Nana and Papa came over around 4:00 and Rachel opened a present and then we went out to eat dinner at Red Lobster. Rachel was so well behaved, i was so proud of her. She even ate well! Then we came back to our house and opened the rest of our presents. Rachel got some art supplies, new clothes and a princess light. Daran got a gift card to Fry's, and I got some new silverware and some earrings and a new nightgown. It was a great night!

After Rachel went to bed, we got all of the Santa stuff out and off we went to bed!

On Christmas morning Rachel woke up around 6:30 and then we opened presents. She was very excited to see what Santa brought her. She got a barbie bathtub, art stuff, barbie jeep, a barbie, and some games. I know I'm forgetting something, she got lots of stuff.

(I thought I would throw in that picture of Zoey because she is sick and we don't know if she will make it much longer. She is almost 14 years old. We have had her since 1996 right after we moved into our house on Dominique. We are very sad that she is sick and it breaks our heart.)

Then we got ready and went to Nanny and Papa's house. We stayed there most of the day and opened presents and then had a delicious lunch. Rachel got lots of stuff there too. A doll, games, stuff for her doll house. We had a wonderful Christmas.
