Windows, Two Christmases, New Year-all wrapped into one...

I know, I's been a while since I've posted anything.  Keith and I had a busy month and some much needed time off work.  I spend my days in front of a computer so over the holiday's I refrained from it!  I'll just do an update of what's been going on at the house and how we spent our Christmas. 
The first of December, we got new windows for the house.  They are beautiful and look very original to the house.  Keith was so skeptical about getting the vinyl windows, but I finally talked him into it.  The windows really "clean up" the look of the house.  We have been enjoying those and can't wait for Spring to enjoy them even more.  Thanks Mama and Daddy for coming and helping out that day.  Keith had to work, last minute, and they were quick to step in and help out.  We really appreciate that!  The next couple of weeks were pretty uneventful.  I got out two full weeks for Christmas and Keith was out Christmas Day-the 4th.  I went to Mama and Daddy's on the 23rd and helped her some.  We had a good time getting to visit. Keith came over after work on the 24th.  Nason, Amanda, Harrison, and Marin all came up Christmas day afternoon for a wonderful meal and to open presents.  Daddy also had gotten Papaw earlier that day.  Keith and I are so blessed to have such a wonderful family!  We had a great time spending time with each and every one of them.  The next day, we headed back to Columbus to clean for the Patrick family Christmas.  We held it at our house this year.  I think we plan on rotating it around to different houses over the years.  We worked really hard to get everything cleaned up and fixed up for the company.  On Monday, Kerri, Travis, Hailey, Harrison, Kristi, Frankie, Natalie, Alyson, Charles and Debbie, all came over for dinner.  Keith and I hope we were able to accomodate everyone comfortably. Our house is kindof small, but we think it is cozy! After dinner, the kids opened gifts.  They were so excited and it was truly a joy to see them!  The rest of the week was lazy for me.  I watched a bunch of Perry Mason movies and a few oldies too.  Keith worked, worked, worked out in the yard.  He has been building and fixing so many different things!  That will have to be another post :)!  For New Years we went next door to eat and visit.  We were so tired, we went home and barely made it til midnight.  In other news, our heat has been out at the house...the heat sensors were never hooked up!!!  Two years living there and we never knew it.  Something is so wrong with that! Anyway, the house is warm and toasty now!  Hope you enjoy the pictures!
