I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus

Whoo de whoo! I am still finding wrapping paper, empty boxes and sticky half eaten candy canes all over my house. Honestly I don't care at this time. Its just one more indicator that we had a good day! This was a year with a twist. Looking back last year my Mother in Law made the statement in tears that it could be her last Christmas with us. Well sadly she lost her fight this April and we spent our first Christmas with her in heaven. We miss her dearly. Hug your loved ones as time is not guaranteed.

I think my personal gift list would make a lot of women upset. No I didn't get a vacuum, I gifted myself one on Black Friday. 

I scored big time. I got not 1 but 2 rods and a new spinner reel! One heavy duty for trolling and hitting the beach and one light action to tear up the crappie and white bass! Along with those was a pink camo fishing hat and a cap to keep the sun of my face. I'll spare you the rest but it may be time to actually workout in the work out clothes this year. (Whoops)

S got a 'Olaf' pole, T got a new rod and reel in bright orange and hubby got a collapsible pole. WTH I was thinking by giving him easy access to stop at his leisure to fish I don't freaking know but anyways.

We are geared up and ready to go, now we just have to make it to water that isn't the bath tub! Although it is 82 degrees the day after Christmas. Hence the Texas Style!

Stay tuned, I'll be back soon with tales from the water side!
