Kickin' it old skool!

So we had a good Christmas, everyone got way too much stuff, our house is now overrun with toys... Even more so than before. And my husband and kids are addicted to video games. The hubby camped out at target all night for his wii, so now he and the kids are totally loving it. I have to say I am mildly impressed, it is a nifty little gadget. But here comes the old skool part.... We got my mom an Atari flashback 2 for Christmas. Ansley so kicks ass at playing Atari. She kicks my ass at boxing on the wii too. I guess with her father having a degree in computer science she is destined for technology.....

and yes!!!!

You read it right.... HE GRADUATED!!!!!!!!!

I am so unbelievably proud of him! He officially graduated on December 20, Ansley's birthday. I think the shock of it has not set in yet. With the holidays and everything we have been so busy we have not had time to enjoy his freedom. I told him now that he is going to be home so much we are going to discover we really do not like each other. This will be the first time in 8 years that he is not "in school". He has been in school the entire time we have been together, it is going to be weird!

I do hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful holiday and I wish you all a happy new year!

Fire, fire!

I think my kid is a little pyromaniac. It is finally starting to get cold here in Georgia so we have been utilizing the fire place. The first night Mike built a fire, Joey sat in front of the fire place just chanting "fire, fire, fire".... I mean just picture a toddler, a 2 year old boy now, totally mesmerized, sitting still and quietly whispering "fire" over and over. Future arsonist maybe? I hope not. He is just wayyyy too interested for my comfort. I imagine his interest will wane with time.

Aside from my little fire bug, things have been going fairly well this week. I quit my crappy seasonal job after only a week because I am worth way more than those people wanna pay me. And I was tired. Ansley's 4th birthday party went well, I was pretty pleased, it was after all a Chuck E Cheese birthday party. Our first birthday party away from home. She enjoyed it, that is all that matters right? Joey finally started saying "I love you". I was having a bit of a hormonal crisis last night looking through photos. My kids are getting so old!!!! Okay, I am gonna quit rambling now. Oh, we just got our lights up. Colored lights that make the kids ecstatic. You women know what I am talking about. But I am ever so grateful that Mike went to all the trouble of putting them up and getting stuck by the holly bushes and freezing his ass off. :)
