The Phone Call

Last night I recieved a frantic phone call from a great friend of mine. Now we talk a lot but not as much as I'd like. We're both just so busy busy. Yesterday I was thinking about her (which I always do) and the phone rang. It was her. :-) She just did something that threw her for a loop and she called me about it. Now you might be thinking whats so odd about that? Well to me the odd thing is that I had experienced and done the almost exact same thing YEARS ago and she didn't know it. So what would make her call me for guidance. I don't know what it was but I am thankful for it. I am glad I was able to be there for her and help her through. I love you babe! *MUAH*

To me this just shows how and why we're such great friends. I can't wait until we all retire together. (well close enough anyways)

I'm old.

LOL well not really but could be. Today is my 31st Birthday. GO ME! Can't wait for Lamp Chops tonight for dinner. YUM YUM!

Our Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was great. The kids kept saying "This is the best Christmas EVER." All day. LOL

Happy Holiday's!

Why do I go shopping?

Why must I go into stores? The Princess mentions getting a Belle dress and I'm all over it since she use to like Cinderella and well I don't...LOL. After thinking about it I'm like there won't be any out - I'll get it later for her bday in May. I was in Target (YIPPEE...LOL) and there it was. COOL! SCORE MOM.

Anyways so this lady walks by and says have you seen the webkinz?? I said no - I didn't even know what they were until this morning when I looked it up online to see what the deal was. She was like -well thier on sale. Okay cool. Anyways so I look (cause man they were pricey online) and thier only $12 bucks...SHIT...I wasn't gonna get them any....I ended up with one for each boy. DAMN IT! Why'd I go shopping again?


Okay well maybe not but gosh darn close.

Yummy Peanut Butter and Jelly on Toasted Wheat bread. *drooling* When you just don't know what you want to have this is a clear choice.

All that melted yummy PB with a thin smear of grape jelly makes my mouth water.

Go on ... you know you want some. I'm cool like that. LOL

So we took the kids sledding for the first time on the 9th. Hubby picked out this awesoem sledding area with tons of nice white snow. We got many great pictures because of his smartness.

Oh wait!

Yeah no the place actually was already melting and so we had tons of fun mud. We all we filthy. Except Ch'neu - have no idea how he managed to stay clean. LOL



Wow it's been awhile since I blogged. OPPS! Sorry man it's busy time of year isn't it.

I finished wrapping presents last night for my kids and hubby. My firend Angie invited me over to hang out and laughed at me when I showed up with a box full of presents and wrapping paper. HEY I had to get it done and when's a better time then just hanging out...LOL. She kept saying "Man I just watched you wrap all that" Yeah thanks for the help FRIEND. hehe. It was all good though - her DD helped though as well as she could anyways. My cute little paper crusher and sisscor stealer (no baby's were harmed in this experience). She even helped mom clean up by throwing the stuff back into a plastic bag. Man way to make them work before a year old there Angie.

Oh then I get home right thinking YES! I'm done - what do I find in the garage as I'm unloading - a little bag with more gifts form the kids to each other in it. Darn it gotta get that done now FIGURES LOL.

brb gonna load some pic into Photobucket so I can share out "sledding fun".

Why Christmas is abbreviated as Xmas.

The "X" in Xmas stands for the Greek letter "Chi," the first letter in the Greek word for Christ. Over time, the letter "X" came to stand for the name of Christ. The practice gained very wide usage in the mass emdia duringt he twentieth century - but not, as many erroneously believe, because of any squeamishness about using the word "Christmas." Often, Xmas simply fits better in a headline.

~~The Everything Christmas Book 1994

While I am more comfortable always using Christmas this allows for some thought about the whole taking Christ out of the holiday. Blessings to all.

Tackle It Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Oh my first one. Well mostly cause I am too lazy to remember to do this on a Tuesday....LOL.

I decided to start in on wrapping the gifts I have already purchased that are strewn all over my garage before my kids see them. I got a lot of them done and a few ready to be mailed out. Yeah me! Tonight I hope to finish whatI have out there after the kids go to bed. This is big for me since I usually wait until Dec 23 or 24 to even start wrapping. Then my back hurts for days after...LOL.

Not to mention a lot of my baking is done too. Maybe this should be Tackle It Week for me...LOL. Must get all of this done before Shua's surgury on Monday.

Santa doesn't bring electronics!

Didn't you know that? LOL The boys keep asking for DS's - well one WOW and two I can't afford two. So we encouraged them to save thier money for it cause mommy and daddy can't afford it and other things for Christmas and Santa doesn't bring electronics.

It worked though and they have been working hard to save thier money and they should both be able to buy one in Jan (we're going to pay for half of the cost of one plus one game while they pay the other half).

Guess that makes the big ticket items (TV/DVD player) from mom and dad. We'll rock this year. :-)

We always try to get at least one "Santa letter" item for them every year.
