This weekend we did some Christmas shopping for the kids. We think they will have a pretty great Christmas! We alsk did a whole lot of resting at home. We only went out once as a family to the container store. Both of the girls ran around and got lots of attention while we were there afterwards we went to Baja Fresh and picked up dinner. Last night Curt and I watched a movie then went to bed....exhausted!
This morning the girls seemed much better. Thank goodness!!! I still have to take them back to the dr tomorrow for a check up but we look pretty good!
We ate pancakes for breakfast and played in the basement. Curt ran some errands in the morning then we put the kids down for a nap. The Redskins were playing the Cowboys at naptime so I knew they were going to lose. I thought it would be so relaxing and fun if I went to the movies. This was probably the third time I went to the movies by myself and I didn't mind it at all. Sometimes it's really nice to do things on your own for a little bit. I went to see 12 Years a Slave. It was AMAZING. I cried like a baby throughout the whole movie but it was so good. It was such an eye opener. It was gruesome, sad, truthful, real and scary. It made me sad to think that I may have had family long ago who owned slaves. I think it's a film that everyone in America must see because we need to know how things really were.
I came back home to my family full of love, happiness and just being grateful to be on this earth in 2013 with my family. We are so lucky to have the things that we have today and we take them for granted...little things that are big things like our freedom.
