Christmas break!!

This Christmas break has been a very relaxing and yet very productive break.  We finally go time to work on Jaxon's room and it is beginning to look like a nursery.  We were able to clean out a bunch of junk and either throw it away or take it and donate it.  Purging is a dreaded process but I always feel much better once it's done! 

Our break began the Saturday after we got out of school with a drive to Grandview for my family Christmas.  This has been a tradition for as long as I can remember.  We used to drive to Marshall every year but about 8 or 9 years ago moved it to Grandview.  A much more central location.  We then spent a few days in Blanco with Brett's family and had Christmas there.  We received some great stuff for Jaxon from both of our family.  We are truly blessed to have such wonderful family around!!  Christmas Eve we came home and went to church, then spent Christmas day at our house and then drove over to my parents for lunch.  Christmas night we drove to Dallas with my parents and my sister.  My sister wanted all of us to go to the Gaylord to see the ICE exhibit.  It was a very amazing thing to see if you've never been!  I highly recommend it.  I'll post pics from there later.  Since then we have been relaxing at home getting small things done around the house. 

 The white bookshelf will be replaced with
a rocker at some point.

 All that's left to complete the bed is the bedding!

His name will go above his bed.
This was my New Year's Day project while Brett watched football.

Mom and I spent New Year's Eve day, painting our kitchen.  The ugly gold that I have hated since we moved in is finally gone.  I am in love with my new kitchen!!  Much improved!

You'll have to excuse the messy table!

Many Blessings this New Year!
