Christmas Day - Part 2

After leaving Mom & Dad's on Christmas morning we headed over to Dustin's Dad & Sue's house for more Christmas with the Popejoy side! 
Aunt Jodi & Charlee 
Someone didn't have a nap all day... 
Oh my 

So we left Ray and Sue's and went straight to my Aunt and Uncle's house in Towanda to have Christmas with the Righter side.
Thats a bell ringer!

We had yet another Christmas the next day for the extended Popejoy side.  Asher and Charlee got together to play again.  This time the exciting thing to do was drink water out of little stackable cups.
We have one more Christmas this Sunday with Dustin's Mom and then we're done until next year!

Christmas Day - Part 1

On Christmas morning Asher slept in til 6:15 - yay!  He was pretty excited to see his tricycle but didn't seem too interested in opening his other presents at home.

Then we headed over to my Mom and Dad's to open gifts.

Christmas Eve - Weber Side

Every year we have Christmas Eve with the Weber side and its always a good time!  Here are a few of the pictures from that night.
Having a snack with Auntie Taylor and waiting for everyone to arrive. 
The boys doing what they do best. 

Uncle Denny's Family 
Uncle Bruce's Family 
Uncle Terry's kids 
Uncle Jeff's Family 
Our Family 
Holy Crap, the Grandkids.
And like Mom pointed out - a lot of us aren't even married yet! 
Love this one of the boys 
Can you suck it in any more guys? 

Mom liked her gift just a little bit. 
Asher carried this retro booster seat that Grandma Glo had around all night.  He loved it and it was just his size.  

The Aftermath

Since its gonna take me a while to sort through the 150+ pictures I took from all of our Christmas festivities I'll just post a few pictures of the aftermath of Christmas. I haven't had a chance to get all of his gifts out of the box yet so I'm thinking maybe we need to designate the computer room upstairs as another toy room...

To My Dearest Sister

Last Friday while we were shopping for you a little dress to wear out for your friends 21st Birthday that night I'll admit I was a little jealous.  Only because I knew while you were out at the bars that night I would pry be at Mom & Dad's eating VFW Steak Fry like we do almost every Friday night.  Then I would go home and put Asher's pajamas on and go to bed by 9:00.  Ho-Hum.

But then on Saturday morning I get this text from you:
Taylor: What time are cookies?
I was thinking hmmmm you're supposed to be staying in Champaign all weekend.  But I told you we were on our way to Grandma Jane's then and asked if you had a rough night.
Taylor: I don't think I'm going to be able to stay for another round.  My feet are cut up and I can barely walk.
What the hell?  Your feet are cut up?  So we went on to Grandma Jane's and baked cookies.  When you walked in we all couldn't help but laugh.  You looked so pretty

You told us how someone must have dropped a glass on dance floor and you had kicked off your heels and had been dancing on broken glass.  Ahem, not the smartest thing you had ever done.  You took off your shoes and we were all horrified at how cut up they were.  Gross.  So of course Grandma Jane took care of you and soaked your feet in peroxide. 
It wasn't until I was pulling shards of glass out of your feet with tweezers that I realized I was thankful for becoming a wife and mother so young.  If this is what i missed out on by foregoing the "College Experience" I don't think I missed a damn thing

(This is pry the most disgusting this I've ever shared on this blog)

So next time I'm feeling sorry for myself that I got married too young and I never get to go anywhere anymore I'll just remember pulling all that glass out and think that maybe I don't have it so bad.
