More exciting news

Yes I have even more news.  As of last night (the 28th) at 11:33pm, I have a new niece.  April and Jimmy (more April than Jimmy, lol) gave birth to a healthy baby girl.  She weighed in at 8 lbs. 9 oz. and 21 inches.  Canady Brooke Everett (not sure of the spelling just yet).  Hopefully I can also post a picture later.

Some BIG News!

For the past two years I have gotten several comments like "You need to start your own business".  I have talked to Mike about it on SEVERAL occasions and even thought about it constantly.  Mike wanted me to just jump right in, but due to fear of failure and just plain chicken, I was scared to.  This brings me to my Christmas gift...

I opened this Christmas morning.  It was my gift from Mike.  I am officially an LLC.  I am currently working on a BLOG and many other things.  The company's name is Party Right Now.  It was a wonderful gift!  I am so excited, nervous, and just thrilled about this new adventure!  Stay tuned for much more to come.  I am a business owner!!!

Christmas with the Graves Family

The day after Christmas we usually get together with the Graves (Mamaw's side) side of the family.  Zack I believe at this point had gotten dehydrated and was just not his self (very lethargic), he was also still sick.  So, Mike stayed at Mamaw and Papaw's house with Zack and the rest of us went to the Christmas get-together.  After the party, we came home and played.  Right before the kids went to bed is when it all happened...  First Bentley got sick, then I got sick, then Papaw, and then Michael.  It was awful!!!  The entire night us three adults were up (I will spare you the details).  We were out of it the next day and a half.  Unfortunately we were supposed to have gone to visit Grammy & Pop and then Grampy & Grandma starting on Tuesday.  With all of us HIGHLY contagious, and Zack is still sick, we felt it best that we not get them sick.  (I would NEVER forgive myself if I got all of them sick.  Especially since Aunt April was going to be going into labor any minute.) So we are going to have to visit with them a little later.  I left my camera so I will update the blog with Stacy and Mamaw's pics from the Graves party.

Christmas Day

Christmas morning was wonderful!  The kids LOVED waking up and seeing what Santa left them.  We knew exactly what they were going to do...they played with what Santa brought and didn't want to open any gifts.  Santa brought the kids a basketball goal, an art easel, and a vanity.  After the gift opening we then had breakfast and headed to Mamaw and Papaw's house.  We thought we were in the clear because at that time Zack had not been sick since right before bed the night before.  After we opened all the gifts...poor Zack got sick again, but this time the other end.  Then the poor boy was going every hour it seemed like.  Other than Zack getting sick it was a great Christmas!

Thank you note from Santa
