Busy Busy Busy!!

Life has been hectic around here! But I guess that is the usual around this time of year. I’m sure you’re all wondering what I have been up to these past few weeks… well, here it is…

On December 15th, Jake and I flew to Phoenix, Arizona on behalf of Petsense… we were invited to their Christmas luncheon in which they asked Jake to make a surprise visit as Ace Ventura. We had such a great time with everyone in the corporate office… they are all SO NICE!! After the Christmas luncheon, “Ace” and I spent some time with a couple others in Old Town Scottsdale, and then at Glendale Glitters (a Christmas lights event). While we were at Glendale Glitters we weren’t able to walk a few feet without someone asking if they could get their picture taken with Ace Ventura… he was a huge hit (and of course he LOVED all the attention :)). We even had security walking around with him! It was so much fun and we had a great time with everyone at Petsense!

While we were in Arizona, we were able to spend some time with my big sister, brother inlaw, and 2 of my nieces. It was so great to see them after not having seen them for a couple years!! And I was able to give my nieces their Christmas presents that I made for them… which they were absolutely in LOVE with! It melts my heart to see how much they love something I made for them :).

On Christmas day, I had to drive down to Sweetwater, TX so I could pick up the boys on the 26th… it takes about 9 hours to drive down there, so I have to drive the day before and stay in a hotel. I will tell you, it was NOT fun!! We had had some bad snow storms go through the whole state of New Mexico and I was really worried about having to drive through it! So I took the main highways, going through Amarillo, which was probably a huge mistake, because I drove right through a snow storm!! That was the worst part of the trip, the rest of it was pretty uneventful. When the boys and I finally got back home on the 26th, we had our own Christmas… the boys loved all their presents! I loved all my presents too!! And not to brag or anything, but Jake is the best guy ever!! He got me a really nice camera and an AWESOME sterling silver skull necklace :)… he knows me so well!! And from my parents I got some much needed new pots and pans… they are awesome!!

All in all, we had a great Christmas! And I hope you all did too!! Have a very Happy New Year!!

  This picture was taken Halloween of 2010, but this is Jake dressed as Ace Ventura. I made those pants for him :).

 

 

 

 

This is what I made for my niece, Ashtyn :)… she LOVES reptiles! Unfortunately, this was the only picture I took of all the niece and nephew gifts I made.
