January 1, 2015

Ok for real, I'm back. I will always discuss my happening from my previous day. So as of January 1st, 2015 we spent the day lying around the camper, watching football, a lot of football games. I think I left the house one time to go get a chocolate shake for us all. yummy! Previously we met up with some friends of ours here in the RV park at Buffalo Wild Wings to watch football games. The 2 families have moved out to another campground in Castroville. We are staying put here at Blazing Star. We brought in the new year with our good friends Gut & Jaime Guthrie, their two boys Blake and Noah. The day started off with Botos & Gut cooking pork on the smoker. It was cold, I don't know how they stood outside the whole time to do it, I stayed inside! Kids ran around and back & forth from one camper to the other. Its always good to see kids playing and having fun. Jaime had to work all day but she is liking her new job, gets her out of the house and $$$$. We had a wonderful meal of pulled pork, cole slaw, hush puppies, rolls, i made spicy black eye peas, cabbage and regular black eye peas as well as a cherry dump cake. We sat around & had few drinks and watched NYE on TV. Afterwards, it sounded like a war zone outside due to the all the fireworks going off here in San Antonio, for 20 minutes straight the sky lit up like the 4th of July. It was beautiful! My car is in the shop due to a fender bender but it will only take two weeks. So that it is why we are down to one pick up, which is on its last leg. The main reason we came back a week early from visiting family in Childress. Still haven't cleaned or organized everyones clothes, maybe I will tomorrow when the sun is out. I can't get motivated with gloomy dark rainy weather. Christmas was great! We went up to Childress and stayed with my parents and hung out with my family and his mom. This year I decided to do get everyone together for Family pictures. The only pictures we have ever taken are for the Church directory. Everyone showed up, my side and on Botos' side. It was a beautiful day. I had Jackie Steed come out and do the pictures, my best friends mom. Huge Thank you ! After family pictures we all went back and ate BBQ at my parents. Justin & Tracy drove up after their honeymoon and we got to hear all about it. Its always nice to catch up and visit with Family. Kids had a great Christmas, got a lot clothes, toys, tech decks, make-up, etc. They were happy and thankful. I did make my mom a family calendar and also put together a family photo tree for her from the pictures we took. It was a booger but well worth it. Botos took my nephew Aaron out hunting and he shot is first deer, a doe! He was one happy little guy, growing up too too fast. Cora went with him, I believe she is good luck! Glad she likes hunting & the outdoors. Once again we were all able to meet up with Coach Shelby and all of us girls ate, drank and shared stories of younger days and what is going on with us today. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. I'm fortunate to have such great friends and coach to meet up with.. Jennifer, Mandy, Cara, Lori, & myself, Coach Thel Shelby. Now we are back home in San Antonio and getting back in the groove of things, kids basketball games & practices. Cora has a scrimmage today, kind of a another gloomy day again, hopefully tomorrow will be warmer and sun will be shining. I also want to go to the RV show, Buck Saloon, & take the kids to the River walk to see the Christmas lights that are all up. one plus to this year is we have internet! after a year and half we have used the Free one here at the RV park & its been wishy washy but now the kids have their own accounts, they can text us and grandparents !!! Until next time... Mamabotos
