Updating (better late than never!)

This year, for Collingsworth Christmas, we all gathered at my aunt and uncles house and spent the night Friday night we ordered pizza (a Collingsworth Christmas tradition) and stayed up very late (some till 6 a.m.) We "woke up" to a wonderful breakfast of french toast, with all kinds of different syrups including peanutbutter syrup (compliments of Gloria Gaither herself!), sausage and bacon It was a lot of fun and I think everyone is voting to do the same again next year It was a blast!

Taking it easy

This weekend we got some snow here in Kentucky Saturday morning I woke up at 8:00 and it hadnt started but by 10:00 the ground was covered I had an itch to get out anyways so decided to head to the nearest mall about 5 minutes away By the time I got there, it was spitting ice so I decided to just run in to one store and get some wrapping paper so I could wrap the presents that I already had
Then around 12:30 I headed back out to do some Christmas shopping and was very successful Im almost completely done I came home made some cookies and cleaned the house
In the evening, Kyle, Amy, Jamie and I spent a couple of hours just hanging out I gave them all their gifts because I wasnt sure if I would have another chance before Christmas Jamie and Kyle decided to model their new shirts for Amy and I
Here are some more pics of my tree for you, Mom I tried to get some closer shots (Mom let me borrow hers this year since Im not allowed to have a real one)

Soooo...maybe its a little early

Mary and I put up our tree on Monday night We were just going to put it up and then finish decorating it the next day but once we started we didnt want to stop We even had to make a trip to Walmart at midnight for some more decorations When we had it all finished we were so much in the Christmas spirit we decided to exchange our gifts right then at 1:00 in the morning, in November no less!
