Oh ya!

BUNCO!!!!! again....lol

Can you tell I love playing bunco with my friends?  lol This group that I play with is my "new" group.  I wanted to be able to play with my other friends too so I decided to start another bunco group.  We have had so much fun for our first year.  We had our Christmas bunco on Monday and with this group we drew names.  I drew Ragan's name and I think I got her a super fun gift lol.  I got her a 3 month subscription to Netflix.  I have it and thought she'd love it too :)  I put it in a cute little plastic popcorn sack (that Kristy found for me at Target :) I was so glad cause I had looked everywhere! lol) and put Reece's in the bottom, a Coke, and some popcrn on top.  Robbie had drawn my name and looky what she got me :) 

For those that know me, know I'm a huge NKOTB fan.  My sister and I got to meet them and sit 3rd row on the first leg of the reunion tour in Dallas a year ago.  It was amazing.  When we were younger we would listen to this on cassette lol while we decorated the tree.  It was pretty much tradition at our house lol.  She also got me a gift  card to Cpl Ray's (coffee shop here in town....and in my oppinion actually better than Starbucks lol)...yummmm oooooo!

Here are some shots from it :) Robbie got camera happy lol.  Betty ended up getting most bunco's,  I took 2nd, and Hilda took most losses.  I think Christy Snodgrass took 1st but I can't remember....darn that old age....lol.

I'm guessing Betty rolled bad or became camera shy lol.

It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas

I went to my Nan's the other day and I love going there at Christmas.  There's always familiar things that represent Christmas to me....

We always have Santa.....

All of us grandkids have stockings that were all made for us.  Mike even has one like the rest of us.  Jan Castleman has started making them for gifts at the baby showers.  Cymbre was so excited for Ranston's at her shower :)

I love to play bunco.  I play with 2 different groups I love it so much...lol.  Well I mainly have two groups because I want to be able to hang out with both groups lol.  I've been playing bunco with my old group for about 10 years now.  It's crazy to think that lol.  My friend Natasha had asked me to be a sub at her mom's group and I accepted....then I became a permenant member.  This year we did things a little different except 3 things.  We still ate good food, had a great time, and had our big roll off lol.  Every year we bring 12 extra dollars and we have a roll off with your table and whoever rolls the highest number get's the $48 :).  We were down 2 people this year so every "table" got $40.

We also exchanged gifts but normally we would draw names but we did a Chinese Christmas and I ended up getting Becky's gift which is amazing!  Cynthia, Becky, and Kim make these blankets and they are fabulous! I'm going to have to get them to help me make a few lol.

Also, yesterday morning this is what I woke up to......

Not what I wanted to see lol.  I HATE snow.  I HATE cold.  I was not happy lol.  It's not that I really hate snow I hate the ice that comes with it.  This is what it looked like when I got to work......
