Our Busy Christmas- 2010

I’m back from our very busy Christmas but I am still recovering.

My house is a WRECK and I just can’t get motivated enough to do anything else about it.
All well… I’ll eventually get to it! haha

But here are a few highlights from our many Christmases.

Before we went out of town, we had Christmas at our house and opened up our gifts to each other.
I bought Travis a router and a few other tools. He bought me a couple craft items, a sweater, and a Willow Tree couple figurine.
Even the “boys” had fun playing with their stocking stuffer toys!

We then headed down to TN on Wednesday and went to the Garth Brooks concert.
It was ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!! I had a fabulous time and he hasn’t lost anything. He did 3 encores, Trisha Yearwood came out and sang, and it was just a grand old time!

We stayed at my parent’s house after the concert and then got up and drove down to Chattanooga to be with Travis’ family for Christmas Eve.
We had a great time and everyone got some fun gifts.
Travis got more tools and a personalized Broncos Jersey. His mom got some pearls, his dad got some tools, and his brother got some snow boarding pants and the new watch he wanted. My BIL was so kind and bought me a light box kit for Christmas so hopefully it will come in handy for blog pics and my Etsy pics.

On Christmas Morning, we got up and drove up to my sister’s house in Maryville, TN just outside Knoxville, to be with my family.
We all had a great time and got great gifts!
I got a new crock pot, the Cricut Gypsy, a rolling bag to carry my cricut and more.
Travis got… more tools!
My mom got lots of new crafty stuff to make cards, a cricut, a special embroidery program, and more… She got spoiled this year! haha
My dad got LOTS of tools too.
My BIL, Kevin, got some video games and tools.
And my nephew Cooper- spoiled as always- he got a new Trampoline, more train stuff, a miniature bowling lane and more.

We had a TN White Christmas and got LOTS of it. It was really pretty.
Oscar LOVES the snow and Travis has never been around him when we have had a good snowfall so he took Oscar out with his tennis ball for a little snow fun.

We headed home on Monday.
Travis went back to work on Tuesday for half days.
But yesterday we decided we needed one last Christmas/New Year/4th Anniversary present.
So we went out and bought us one of these bad boys:
A 2011 GMC Terrain!

We had to order it since they are so popular and we decided to get the works on it so it won’t be here until March but we can’t wait! The one pictured will look just like ours. I did the build a car on their website to get the pic… but it is a dark Gray color, chrome package, the works!

We are trading in my Saturn for it so it will take me some getting used to driving something taller and larger but it will be great!

But that is our Christmas trip in a nutshell.
I’m WAY behind on reading all the blogs I follow so I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas as well!

Happy New Year as well!

    Wow, way to make the most of the season! Sounds like a great Christmas. And congratulations on the new vehicle. Coming from a driver of a small hatchback, it looks like an awesome ride.

    Hey, I totally didn't realize our linky parties were going to be on the same day now…I'm sorry!! I totally didn't plan that…and I don't want you to think I was "copying" you at all! I just was looking to a less crazy time of the week for teaching, so I could review the projects over the weekend, that's all!

    Have a great New Years 🙂
