But, the story goes on....
We arrive at school and Beanie starts to get panicked about staying at school. So, Lucy and I stay in the little library area right outside his door. Well, Lucy is in her pajamas, but luckily I am dressed for the day, because we ended up needing to stay until 1:30!!!! From 8:00 until 1:30. Thankfully they had a lot of great books for me to read to Lucy and she calmed down as soon as we walked in the door. Lucy is completely easy to entertain and she can find joy and make a game out of anything. So, that was our exciting day last week.
Beanie and Lucy have always said that they wanted to marry each other. Anytime that I say "Daddy and I are married", Lucy always responds that she wants to marry brother and vice versa
Beanie always wants to marry Lucy. Well, last week Beanie finally asked me if that were possible. I told him "no, brothers and sisters can't marry each other in this country." So, a couple of days later I overhear Lucy tell Beanie that she wants to marry him and Beanie responds by saying "Lucy we can't marry each other here, because it is illegal. I guess we will have to go out of the country to get married. Maybe like, England or something." Lucy was just fine with the idea!

We made this Gingerbread House on the Saturday before Christmas. We made it from scratch and the kids loved making it out and cutting it out and especially decorating it. Opening the Christmas presents and making a Gingerbread house are Beanie's favorite traditions for Christmas! Lucy had one side and Beanie had the other. They did a great job!
Christmas day with Grandpa! April, Kevin, Haley, and our family met with the Cannons at Grandpa's for Christmas! We met in his front lobby area since there was such a large group of us and we played the white elephant game and had a great time getting to catch up with everyone!
As we were leaving Lucy said "I don't want to leave Grandpa". She loves her Grandpa and he loves her!

Aunt April, Kevin and Haley came around 4:30, and hung out with us until we left for Grandpa's party at 6:00pm. Then they came back over to our house until about 10:00. We had dinner and exchanged presents! We had a great time together!
Beanie got that awesome Crystal Kit from Nate and Amy, and he loves it!!! Brady and him just made one the other day and Beanie was so excited to do it. It still is in the creating process:) On the table is of course the great "Lego Build" of the "Mobile Devastator" .
Mom, Joe and Gram made the turkey, the stuffing, the mashed potatoes, the sweet potaotes and the gravy! Pretty awesome work for a 92 year old!!! I brought the tofurkey, the veggie gravy, the veggie dumplings, olives and jello salad. I also forgot the rolls, sorry Gram! Amy and Nate brought the sparkling Cider!
This was the much anticipated present. It arrived on Christmas Eve and Beanie was so worried that he wasn't going to get it! About a week before Christmas I was on the phone with Amazon.com trying to change the address, because I accidentally sent it to our old address. Well, he overheard me talking about it, when I thought he was in the other room and he said "oh good, I am getting the mobile devastator". So, I had to say "oh, sorry buddy, they just said they are out". He was so distressed and said we have to fly to where they have it! Christmas Eve he said he couldn't go to sleep because he was so worried that he wouldn't get his "mobile devastator" . In the meantime Brady and I were stressing out about it coming, because it wasn't available anywhere around us!! It arrived Christmas Eve about 1:00pm. Whew!!!!
