IBM Christmas Party

 So that IBM Christmas party that I was soo looking forward to ended up being a total bust!  Not because of the party, venue, or food... all that was great...but because we took a very sick Embry along with us.  I thought she was on the upswing from an ear infection, but apparently going to Golf N Stuff was a little too much for her to handle.  We got there at 8, had some yummy bbq breakfast burritos (of which Embry ate nothing), then played some arcade games, and went outside to do some mini-golf because Embry was very excited about her first min-golf experience.  After about 3 holes she started coughing something awful so we headed back inside for more games, but as it turned out, she proceeded to cough, gag, and puke on the floor and then down the back of Tony's shirt as we rushed out the door to the car.  That was fun let me tell ya!  I felt so incredibly bad for Embry, she was so excited about going to the place with castle (what she calls it because there is a mini castle on the golf course that you can see from the road).  Good news though, I won a birthday party for 10 at Golf N Stuff from MOPS!  Guess where we're having the girl's party next year?!

Christmas Eve

Let me just say that I HATE being sick! Hate that I can catch anything and everything with just the snap of a finger. It really sucks. So it's Christmas Eve and I caught the stomach bug that embry had 2 days ago and now I'm laying in bed while everyone gets ready for the Christmas eve service at church. I've been looking forward to that fora long time and even got adorable dresses for the girls to wear. We already had to cancel our trip up mt lemmon this morning to go sledding and now no church either. 😥 Lupus, you can suck it!

Birthday at the Ranch

I thought I had posted about the girl's bday party, but it looks like I never got around to it.  It was a ton of fun!  Nola hated the pony rides, which is weird because we went there last Christmas and she loved them.  I hope she's not getting more timid as she gets older.  However she rode the mini horse cart and went into the petting zoo so not all was lost!  Embry loved all of it, of course.  She was a cowgirl for a day and had a blast.  It cost a lot more than I had planned (although I guess looking back I probably shouldn't have been surprised).  The cost was based on 15 kids and I knew I was inviting a lot more than 15, but what can I say, we're social people!  The food was delicious and we had LOTS of arby's roast beef left over so I had scrumptious sandwiches for days afterward.  Yum!  All in all we had a blast and I'd love to do it again, but it's a bit cost prohibitive. :( 

Next up on the 'FUN' agenda:  IBM Christmas 'party' at Golf n Stuff on Dec 15.  We're taking Embry along (Nola is too small) and I'm soooo looking forward to it!
