Well the holidays and the year 2013 have come and gone. December flew by at light speed. I spent Christmas at Miranda’s as usual this year. I was able to come in the Friday before Christmas and see Cody perform in his annual Christmas show with his classmates. That was a treat to see.
We spent the weekend before Christmas baking holiday cookies and treats and playing games. Mom, Bill, Clint and Heath came in for on Saturday to have a Christmas dinner and open presents. Michelle was home with Paige who was sick and Lorna and Steve skipped Christmas festivities this year.
Unfortunately, Christmas was a little bit of a bummer this year because Miranda caught the flu and then I caught it a day later. She only had to deal with the worst of the symptoms for a couple days and was fine by Christmas Eve. Sadly, it hit me bad and I was sick the whole week of Christmas. It was still good to be with family during my vacation time though.
The boys actually slept in until 7 on Christmas morning this year which was a first! Caleb enjoyed his space shuttle model I got him and Cody loved his bouncy ball maker kit. It was the year of remote controlled toys for the boys. I got them these cool remote controlled fighting robots that we all got a kick out of and Dad and Troy had gotten them remote controlled helicopters. I was glad that my bee photos turned out so well for Miranda’s gift this year.
Unfortunately, since I was sick, I had to pass on another New Year’s trip to Gatlinburg with my Henderson buddies. They all went without me and I am bummed I missed out, but there’s always next year.
