So I haven't blogged in like foreveeeer. So here you have it. I hope you all had a great Christmas? I did. well it was ok...ok it was freezng cold in my MIL'L but we survived, that's why we left a day early. haha. Christmas seemed like it just passes me by. Although I didn't prepare for it & I did not stress about it. So that was good.
It's been good seeing David & April. We'ved had a fun time together. Although we'ved only played games 1x. But it sure makes up for all the 4 mo of not playing any. haha. We'ved sure have had lots of holidays here. The 24th, 25th & 26th is a holiday. So you know what that means. Stock up on MILK!! cuz all the stores are closed!!! Yip none are open for 3 days in a row. & that's everything!!! So it's pretty quiet around here. Then afcourse there's the New year. So another 2 days of store's not opening. But I think we got enough to live off for 2 days & feed our guests. haha.
Saturday we had Audrey's 1yr B-day party. I have been trying to plan this around All of Steve's fam & the holidays. So much for nothing. Steve's parents & sister did not come. His mom's excuse was that they had to prepare for Snday's service. Give me a freeking break. We have a 250 member church & our pastor prepares the night before. I don't know what a 7 memmber church has to prepare for. And all day????hmmm. Well it was mmore my MIL. Bob would of come & Lindi. But I wasn't smart enough to have made the invitation at the table. rrrrr. WHATEVER!!! I tried. Their loss. Lindi could've come but she's too much influenced my MIL. & feel's stuck in between 2 people. whatever!!! snap out of it girl!!! But it was better that they didn't come, really. We had 3 couples over. I wasn't planning a big party n-way. It turned ut better this way. No stress & fun conversation. Except for the anti- battery operated toys lady. whatever!!!
It was fun. Audrey got 2 battery operated toys & i'm quite happy with them. Although I was sad for 2 days, b/c I couldn't be with my friends that I miss soooo much. I was strong & held my tears back & enjoyed the moment. Audrey was sooo cute in her ladybug outfit. We tried to make ladybug cupcakes but there wasn't enough red dye. So they came out pink & added black polk a dots. They turned out quite cute. I will post pic's once I downoad them today.
Well last night we had a great New Year's eve service. It started at 8pm til midnight. We took the kids with me. I put Adrey down in the pastor's office before church started & she knocked out right away. whew. She never woke up. Thank God!! We let Andre stay up until he crashed but he never did. He was having so much fun & he did sooo good. I'm impressed. The 1st half was basically a talent show. People did skits, sang, said poems, jokes & comedy. It was quite a fun night. Then after 10pm we headed over to the street corner cafe that the church has. And we ate. The church members ea brought a dish & dessert. It was quite nice. Then we headed over to the sanctuary abt 15 til midnight & sang & welcomed in the New Year. The best part about was the traditional Austrian New Year. As soon as midnight hits we all say Happy New year to everybody & then they dance the waltz. It's the coolest thing I have ever seen. I mean everybody was dancing. It was so nice. Of course then you got all dizzy & i can't dance the waltz, so Steve & I kept on stepping on each others shoes. haha. quite funny. Andre loved it as well. He likes to dance & wants me to hold him. So it worked out quite good in this night. Then we left the church at 1am. Judy the pastor's wife took the kids home & put them to bed & we headed over to see the fireworks. It was out in the boonies & it was COLD!!!! We got home @ 2:30am & went to bed at 3. So we are pretty pretty tired today. But hey..how often do you get to stay up this late right??? So Happy New Yeat to all & a prosperous Year!!!
