So, that's it then. The holidays are all over for another year. Just a load of, "this is what I did over Christmas," posts to come. Speaking of which... I'll get to mine soon.
I ended up finding a couple of other Christmas movies I hadn't seen before (or hadn't seen for so many years that I know there's no way I've reviewed them on here) so the reviews of those will be coming soon. Along with reviews from other movies I watched recently.
Emma-Jane took two unaided steps on Christmas day! I wasn't there, since I didn't see her Christmas day, but I got told about it afterwards. Looks like our predictions of her walking before she makes it to a year old are probably coming true, since she's 9 months old and already able to walk with help, and take a couple of wobbly steps by herself. She's a very bright little baby, and she knows a lot of words. She now says, "yuck," "ta," and "ta-tas," (as in "goodbye,") on top of all the other words she already said before. Also, she attempted to wipe my Nan's nose for her on Christmas Eve when she was visiting them, which we all think was not just smart, but really cute too! I can't believe how fast she's growing up! It seems like it wasn't long ago she was a tiny little bundle who couldn't even hold her own head up, now the only thing stopping her being up on her feet is the fact her legs aren't quite strong enough for her to do it yet. She's definately putting in the effort, and determined that it wont be long though... Then we'll all be in trouble, since I know she's going to be in to everything!
She wasn't well over Christmas either. Actually, we think it was her I got it from, since we had the same thing and she was just a little ahead of me with symptoms. Poor little thing! Her first Christmas and she's not well for it. Mind you, that didn't stop her trying to walk, nor did it stop her trying to demolish the Christmas tree. LOL! So, I guess she wasn't letting it get her down. Bless her, she was even still smiling while she wasn't well. I wish I could have been smiling while I wasn't feeling well! I'm still not feeling smiley, and I'm a lot better today, but Emma-Jane... She's almost always smiling, and I guess even being really ill doesn't change that. Bless her!
We had a white Christmas, but the rain came Monday evening, so everything turned to ice and slushy stuff. Then it all started melting. By the end of the week it was gone. Never mind though, we had at least close to 2 foot of snow, and I had a white Christmas. That's good enough for me! Besides, when I'm better I'd like to be able to take Kero for his walks again, since I couldn't with all the snow around. I mean, it was hard enough for Kelly to find the path in all that snow, so I'd have had no chance. Not that I'd complain if we got more snow, since I do love snow. But I do miss my walks with Kero... Plus, we could do with them actually coming to get the rubbish, since they couldn't get the truck in here when we had all that snow. Luckily it was the recycling stuff they missed picking up and not the "other" rubbish, because the recyclables don't stink. But it would be nice if all the bags of recyclables that have been on the curb for a couple of weeks now could actually get picked up this week. Especially with how many more of them there are this month with all the rinsed out pop bottles, Christmas present boxes, wrapping paper, and other Christmas related rubbish.
OK, I think that this will do for today. Like I said, I'll do my, "this is what I did over Christmas," post some time soon. Some of you will probably find my post boring. But it's my life, and my blog. And you don't have to read the post if you don't want to.
