Happy New Year friends! I’m still in vacation mode over here for a couple of days but really wanted to tie up our December with a quick post of our last few weeks. I try to use The Queen’s Chronicles as our little diary throughout the year and sometimes there is enough going on to be a weekly post but lately it seems my picture game is week and it has been more of a catchup!
Here’s a look at what’s been happening here!
A quick trip to my hometown in mid December to take my Mamaw to the doctor and Carly Jo played hooky from school and joined me.
Janac Christmas on the 23rd and we were only missing 9 cousins! Quite the crew and they are all growing up so fast!
We spent Christmas Eve with Keith’s mom and sister and the kids eating prime rib and snacks and opening gifts. I always try to purchase a game for us to play and this year Watch Yo Mouth was the winner. We laughed so hard! We headed out to Target for our now annual stocking stuffer shopping trip. I shelled out $20 to each family member and we browsed the aisles looking for the a stocking stuffer for each person in the family. This has become a favorite for us!
Christmas morning is my favorite because it is the only day of the year all of my babies wake up in my house for sure! We took no pictures of our morning because we were too busy enjoying each other. I did round them up for our annual Christmas morning picture and it never disappoints as you can see with this years winner!
We then headed to my hometown Christmas evening and celebrated with my family the day after Christmas and managed a few pictures to capture the day and those we love. My poor nephew Myles is in that weird smile phase and the more he was told to smile “right” the more upset he became. Sweet boy!
On the 27th Carly & Dillon headed off to Charlotte, North Carolina with Aunt Amy for the Belk bowl to cheer on the Aggies!
Huge bonus when your best friends also happened to be there! Ice skating, an NBA game, touring UNC campus…and of course attending the Belk bowl were just some of the highlights. They had an amazing time and I was just a little jealous!
Meanwhile, I have been back home pulling everything out of all 3 of the front bedrooms so they could be repainted. After the painting was done I moved some furniture around and headed to Ikea for new beds in Carly and Dillon’s rooms. After getting back home I realized I purchased the WRONG bed for Carly and that really set back my progress. Dillon’s room is all done once I hang pictures on the wall and today I will be trying to put Carly’s new room together. If you follow me on Instagram then you followed along on my stories last week and hopefully prayed for me and the mess! Ha!
I better get off this computer and get busy because I do have to go back to work this week and having the house put back together will be key to a clear mind! Hope you are all off to a beautiful 2018!
