Not enough time in the day...

Man, I have really been bad at getting posts up lately! So much has happened with the holidays, there is NO way I can get it all on here. Not to mention, we have our hands full with these two little boys. If I'm not feeding one, its the other. If I'm not changing one diaper, its the other. If I'm not rocking Cruz, I'm playing with Maddox...you get the idea! My life is so consumed with my babies!

So where should I start...December 20th was David and I's 5 year anniversary and first date night since having Cruz. We left the boys with my mom and dad and had dinner at Ruth's Chris...my first time there. It was SO good, but very pricey, so I'm sure it won't be anywhere we frequent on the regular basis! David got me a Nikon D60, thank God! I have been wanting a new camera forever! Now my problem is that it is the pictures are so high quality, it takes forever to download. I've got to figure out how to fix that! I gave David a Playstation 3 (I was so bummed he didn't want a Wii) and some golf tees (this was because you are suppose to give wood as a gift for 5 year anniversary). Still can't believe its been 5 years...and still can't believe all that has happened in those 5 years!

Christmas was great. We spent Christmas Eve day with Davids mom, her fiance, and grandmother. Maddox loved having company and Cruz loved getting held so much! That night we went to the Christmas Eve service at our church (Church at Pinnacle Hills) with my parents. There was no childcare, so Maddox went to big church with us. He did so good, he sat in between my mom and dad, or in their laps, the whole time. He had fun flirting with a lady behind us and really enjoyed the candle lighting part. He kept looking at the candles saying "Hot!". So cute!

We had Santa at my house Christmas morning and my parents came over early to witness Maddox first seeing his all of his new toys. He was so cute! He was all smiles playing with his new stuff. My sister Kim and her family came up that afternoon and we opened gifts and had Christmas dinner with them. Our family goes WAY overboard for Christmas...however, none of us would have it any other way. We have had Christmas's where the kids actually get tired of opening gifts...how crazy is that!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and will have a Happy New Year! We are low key this year...Mom and Dad are keeping Maddox and we are going to dinner with friends...and Cruz!

Here are some pictures from our Christmas Eve:







And here are just a FEW from Christmas day:





Here is the view from the top of my stairs down below...this is aftermath of Christmas morning:). Most of the trash was already taken out! Ha!

First of all, I LOVE your new background!

I'm so glad y'all were able to go out for your anniversary. That must have been a treat! You look fantastic by the way. How are you feeling? Are you getting much sleep at night?

Your Chrismtas pictures are great!

I'm saving up for a Nikkon. Not sure which one I'll get. By the time I have enough money saved up, something new will have replaced the one I was saving for! lol

How many different lenses did yours come with? Did you get a tripod?

I had to come back and correct! I put two k's in Nikon and now I feel like a hillbilly.

I'll just blame it on the fact that I've been staring at the computer ALL afternoon - planning out the rest of school for the year! It might just be time for a glass of wine I think. ;D
