Playing Catch-Up

I'm afraid I've lost the enthusiasm for posting very often on my blog. I would aplogize to all of my loyal readers, but I don't think I have any. My mom was a big fan, but her computer has been out for quite awhile. So not even my mom reads my blog any more. I'm just not one of those bloggers that gets 20 comments per post (Allyn Boney!). But I won't give up hope. I'll be like Bill Murray on What About Bob, "I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful ... I feel good, I feel great, I feel wonderful". Perhaps I just need to give myself a good pep-talk to get my posting commitment back up again. So here goes ...

Christmas was a whirlwind that I still feel like I'm recovering from. We took a 4 day trip to Asheville and came home (in a sputtering, sick car) on Christmas Eve. We stopped on the way home to buy stocking candy (umm ... just guess who was in charge of buying that - me or Cletus?) and found WalMart to be closed at 6:30 on Christmas Eve. Come on! Can't WalMart be open when you actually need them to be? We found a KMart that was open and joined the throngs there buying last-minute Christmas surprises. Although, I have to say that it was kind of depressing seeing all of the parents that saved their Christmas shopping until night before and were just buying whatever was on the shelves for their kids. Lots of them had their kids with them! Hmm ... nothing dispells the magic of Santa like being with your mom as she buys your presents on Christmas Eve. So we got stocking candy at KMart without our kids knowing somehow (did I mention that Cletus was in charge of buying the candy and he procrastinated?). We arrived home on Christmas Eve and Hayden and Kate opened their new matching pajamas that I had made for them. Yes, I know, I'm amazing.
And, from Christmas morning until now has been kind of a blur. We have visited much, opened lots, eaten way too much, and driven many miles. But, the kids had fun, we have lots of new toys to play with, and I have a new camera! That's right, expect to be blown away by the pictures that will start to appear on my blog. I LOVE it!
I can also now say that YES, I am from North Carolina, and YES, I have been to the Biltmore, thank you. Twice in two days, with kids in tow. Boo-yah!
