Christmas Fun

I LOVED my week off...but have to admit I did miss the blogs. I have lots of new pictures to post, but TOO much work to catch up on right now. Baby pictures to come soon, I promise. In the mean time here is a quick silly little fill in the blank thing--Christmas style!

9. Easiest person to buy for? Logan, he LOVES any gift!

ME :( It was a gift from my dad's parents, later we found my grandmother had won it in a raffle at work. Ha-ha.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeers? Yes...Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen and the most famous reindeer of all.....Rudolph!

Merry Christmas!!!!
