Colemere Christmas Party - 2011

Didn't know if I was going to make it to the party this year. I felt HORRIBLE. Buuuuuuut I took some cold medicine, had a glass of wine...........then I felt better. This is what a drunk, sick person looks like. With her cute cousin, Angie!Gorgeous Adriana.....Steph got Terry to smile!!!Cute girls pose. Hey, who is that handsome stranger in the background????? Hahaha, Clockwise from left: Adriana, Calli, Jesse, Barb, Steph, and Bev.
The crafts were so awesome! I didn't get any pics of the hair flowers, but we did those first. I love them, thanks Barb!!! Then we did coffee/hot chocolate spoons. You dip the spoon in the melted chocolate, then roll it in your favorite topping. When it cools, it looks like these. When you are ready for a hot beverage, you stir it with the spoon and it flavors the drink. Yummy!!!! Thanks Bev!Here are our cute expecting parents, Stephanie and Dan.....Rachelle did the craft for our side of the fam. She got cute glass orbs, then the kids filled them with craft snow or marshmellows and put snowman stickers on them. Quite the hit! Thanks Rachelle! Clockwise from left: Mikaela, Topher, Noah, Rachelle, Trey (you can only see part of his head), and Tim.Trey is showing me his cool new toy!Topher is showing me his ornament.Tim is mad because I am making him show me his AND taking his picture! The audacity of some moms..... geesh!!!Had a great time, as usual. Thanks Bev for hosting. One of these days I'll talk T into letting me have it at our house :)

Twelve Days of Christmas - 2011

Ah, dear blog reader...we come to the end of another productive and busy year. This is the annual Twelve Days of Christmas post. For the first day, as tradition expects, the kids got an ornament. Can you just feel the excitment from this picture????? Yeah, me either......I gave Terry some blueberry cordials. I had never seen them before. Yeah, we ate them all that night!Day Two made them a little happier. Who can resist sugar!!!Day Three brings gifts of Sonic, beef stick and coloring pages!Day Four: More candy and sugar. Just what they need! Notice the line of caramel coming from Tim's mouth.....I got Daddy some stinkem!!!Day Five: Terry got holiday nut mix. Tim and Topher got really nice waterproof gloves. It makes their hands look like skeleton fingers! No pics of these either! Sorry!
Day Six is an Airsoft gun and ammo for Topher....
and another Sonic for Tim. Terry got pistachios.

Day Seven: The kids got Playstation Store cards. Terry got a cast iron griddle. No pics of these.
Day Eight: Tim got a basketball, Topher got earbuds for his Ipod and Terry got Huey Lewis and the News and Brad Paisley Christmas.
Day nine Terry got more stinkem and the kids got stockings. Ten they got shirts. Terry isn't wearing his....
Day Eleven brings sleds for the kids and a cleaver for Terry. I might have to be careful with the gifts I give my husband!!!Finally Day Twelve (Christmas Eve) arrives. Tradition dictates jammies on this day!
This Christmas was scary because I had just quit my job. We are so blessed because our bills didn't get behind, I got a wonderful job that I really like, and we still had one of the best Christmases ever! We are totally blessed and I thank God everyday for all of the wonderful things I have. I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas!!!
