We love our Christmas in February!!
Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Pat send us gift certificates to Texas Roadhouse for Christmas. It always seems like it takes us until February to get everyone's schedules to match up. Between Christopher's schedule at Convergys, Steve's schedule with the Police Dept., Sarah's schedule with the nursing home, Kelsey's schedule with school and Daniel's schedule with school, I really thought it would be April or May before we got to enjoy our family dinner. It's just a good thing that Frank, Jonathan, Grandma Elle and I are so stinkin flexable. I'm so glad that Chris decided to take a couple of days off at the beginning of the week. Steve and Sarah were trying to talk us into taking everyone in shifts, and then they so unselfishly agreed to go with each shift to help spread the love, but it turned out great for everyone because we all got to go together. The only thing that would be better was if Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Pat could join us.

All in all I think everyone had a good time. Kelsey and I especially, since the Steelers WON.
It's funny though, I hated football right up until the time that Daniel started playing. A new appreciation is formed when you have children involved in a sport you know absolutely nothing about. It seemed like with each season I gained new knowledge and appreciation. So when Chris and Jon played I could atleast cheer and jeer at the right times. Although I wouldn't be completely honest if I said I never cheered or jeered emphatically at the WRONG time, because I have. That is one mistake that is hard to cover up, so I just would look around and smile. Frank is so good to me when I do that, he just pats my leg, smiles and says, "Oh hon" Then he tries to explain it to me sometimes missing the next important play.
