Weekend Wrap Wednesday ~ Wrapping up the Year

WOWZER it was a good weekend full of lot's of fun!
First off show off some amazing mom gifts :). I had to buy a vacuum (yes I spelled that wrong on the picture) for myself. Rick bought me two great gifts. I even got a time to get my toes done! Then the SUPER duper of all gifts. My bosses first sent me a Nook Color for Christmas that was JUST awesome. Sadly I had some problems with my WiFi not connecting and few hours on the phone with their CS in India. Sadly nothing wrong with anyone from there but we couldn't understand each other. And all they kept telling me was to buy a new router and WiFi. Then I had problems with downloading books. BUT I would never say anything, my boss was so sweet and asked me if I was having problems like she was. She told me to pack it up and return it and she was picking us all up iPads! I almost died at the amazing generosity and that they would know me so well that I would love to read books on the go. I am so blessed and grateful to have such wonderful bosses that I consider to be family.

New Years Eve we headed to my childhood best friends house for a fun night! She had the Kinex and we all busted out the Dance Centeral. All I have to say is the Old Skool hip hop songs kick you butt! I had to work the next morning at 6am so it was an early night, but fun to hang out :).
And THANKS to Rick who suggested we take the kids to ZooLights. He usually is working but he made time on his day off to go with us. This is the first time we went as a whole family, I usually take the boys by myself. It was cold but so much fun and I was happy to have him along.
And then Sunday my other childhood Best Friend (we all grew up on the same block) had her sons 4th Birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. The kids loved and and of course my little escape artist Caden decided to pull a disappearing act and almost had me in tears! They don't let you leave with out showing your stamp and you and the child MUST have the same stamp but still it freaked me not to be able to find him. Turns out there is a HUGE 9 ft Rocking horse that he crawled up upon and was watching over his panic ridden mom :).
I told you it was busy!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful holiday. We visite a light display and love it too.

  2. I don't know where you find the time! Looks like so much fun and maybe I'm just a tiny bit envious of your iPad. (Just kidding.)

  3. What a wonderful Holiday!
    And I am SO jealous of your new vacuum!!!!!

  4. Glad you had a nice Holiday! Hope Zoolights was fun, we never did make it due to some unforseen circumstances...
    Talk to you soon (oh, and check your email) :)

  5. sounds like a FABULOUS holiday for you!!!
    and i LOOOOOVE your toes too!!

  6. I got a Nook but I didn't have any problems with mine. Sorry you did, but then again you got an iPad instead which is way more expensive and SO cool!

  7. Now I'm glad I just got a regular Nook and not a Nook color...

    Glad you found your errant son - I hope he learned to not do that again.

  8. So jealous of you toes and your iPad!!!!

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

  9. Ok, I'm beginning my Christmas list today..LOL
    I could use a massage cushion, a kindle and maybe even an iPad :)

    I received a nice camera for Christmas. Now to use it on a regular basis :)

  13. Lucky girl to get an ipad...I would love one. My mom is getting one so maybe they will get me one someday...

    We got the Kinect for Christmas too...haven't done the Dance game much but might try it tomorrow for my excercise if it is still raining.

    Happy New Year...I hope to not be as busy as during the holidays so I can be by to say hi more often...chat with you soon.

  14. Sounds like you had a great holiday. Wow, an iPad...what an awesome gift from your boss! Think your boss can have a talk with my boss?! My husband bought me a Dirt Devil vacuum for Christmas. It was desperately needed.

  15. Squee! You have the best boss ever! I got a Kobo reader with some Borders gift cards and I absolutely LOVE it. Would still like to get an ipad someday though.
