Birthday pics

Here are some pictures of my Nena opening her gifts. She hates that we buy her stuff but it is the only time we can. She won't let us get her stuff for Christmas.

Happy Birthday Nena!

Today is a truly special day in my family. My sweet grandmother, better know as Nena, is 79 today. She still cooks, cleans, works in the yard and has gorgeous flowers every summer. You would never know she is 79. She makes me look so bad. When I dropped Saylor off this morning she was icing a Red Velvet Cake. She is always busy! The woman cleans under her fridge weekly for goodness sake! NO dust bunnies at her house. She is always taking food to sick friends and to the funeral home. She is the kindest person you could ever meet. She is one of the greatest women in my life along with my mom and my sister. I am so happy to have her and for my kids to have her. Christian and Saylor adore their Nena! Tonight we will be having dinner together to celebrate our wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, wife and sister, Christine Gribble! We love you, Nena!

8 Days til Christmas!

Wow it is almost here. I can't believe how fast it sneaks up on you. School gets out this week and the kids are ready for Christmas to be here! I am more ready than I was after shopping yesterday with Mandy and Saylor. I only have a couple more things to pick up and I will be finished. I even started wrapping last night. I guess I am feeling the pressure to finish things up. I haven't been real festive this year. I decorated my house for Christmas but didn't put up a tree. (I know!) It is pitiful but I can't stand dealing with those freaking lights!! We spend Christmas Eve with my parents so Santa has a tree to put his presents under and that is the most important thing you know. I am hoping to get a prelit tree after Christmas for next year and then I won't have an excuse not to put one up. Anywho, I hope you are enjoying the holiday season and with this cold weather it truly feels like Christmas now.
