Yes, yes, yes, We are still here. Just crazy busy all the time. I just never get around to blogging, as well as many other things. So... Now that all the hooplah is over and I can sit down and relax, I thought I would start the upcoming new year right, by posting on my blog. I hope that I can keep up through the new year. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, I know we did. However this morning I really thought that after this week of the kids being home and fighting and fighting and fighting, it would have been good for them if Santa didn't show up.

Gavin got his driver's license this past Tuesday. I don't know who was more nervous, him or me. He passed with flying colors and is so excited to be legal now. He wasn't to happy to hear that he couldn't drive any of his friends around for 6 months, though. We are looking for a little beater vehicle to buy, that gets decent gas mileage, if anyone know of one.

We got back last night from a week in Mexico. We stayed about an hour outside of Cancun in Playa Del Carmen. It was awesome. We stayed in a great resort that was all-inclusive, which is the only way to go with 8 mouths to feed (my cousin Jessica came with us) The beach was really nice, 100 times better than our last two resorts. We had so much fun playing in the ocean, that was what the kids looked forward to the most. I was a little nervous that I would be a nervous wreck about them drowning in a wave, but I wasn't and we had a ball. We spent a day at Xplore, where we rode the zip lines, water hammocks, rafted through stalactite's and stagmites and then swam through them and rode atv's through the jungle, it was awesome. Steve and I weren't able to dive because the winds were too high out on the ocean, so the port was closed :(, but that just meant we had more time to spend with the kids. I was really bummed that Gavin didn't get to dive. Needless to say, we were not ready to come home to 30 degrees. I will have more pictures maybe by tomorrow, I want to make a slide show. So tune back in.
