Ice show!

First, the promised pictures from yesterday's Christmas at Grandmother's:

What a photo hog.

See?  He's actuallly tearing the paper some!

Grandmother got a Snuggie, so Ashley thought she would get a picture and send it in and maybe get on the commercial.  Who doesn't want to be in a Snuggie commercial?

All of the grandkids/grand-spouses/great-grandkids/and one girlfriend.

And now for today.  I woke up today and I did NOT feel good.  My head hurt and my whole body felt like it had been beaten with a bat.  But, I had no sore throat, not tummy ache, no runny nose, no cough.  Weird huh?   Even though it pained me to move, I still was a good mommy and took care of my kid.  Okay.  I rested on the couch praying for nap time while he pulled out everything from my entertainment center and stood on it.  That's his new game.  But I made sure he was safe and his belly was full, so there. 

Then about 11:30 Cody's BFF, Dillon, called and said  he got us tickets to go to the ice show with him and his girl friend!  What?!  I've always wanted to go to that, so I napped while Sir Messy napped and I doped up on Advil  and braved the cold.  It was the most fun in -2 degrees I've ever had!  Look!

Autumn, Dillon, Cody, and me, about to go in (everyone has to wear these super cool coats)(and can you tell I was the only one smart enough to wear a hat and scarf? Plus I had on two shirts and a sweater.)

I'm "smashed"  against the ice! (it's in quotes because I'm not actually touching the ice.  That would be cold.)

The theme was "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas"

Then as you left there was an awesome nativity scene.  You haven't seen anything until you see an ice baby Jesus.

Thanks D, it was a lot of fun!

That sounds like so much fun. I'd love to see something like that. I hope you are feeling better. I've had a taste of what it's like to be in your shoes this week - I've been spending a lot of time watching my 17 month old nephew because my sister's been a bit down and out --- right now I'm sneaking in some blog time while he's dancing with the wiggles :)
