christmas list

Wonder if I can put this on my christmas list?

4 days

I have 4 entire days off from work. I can't remember the last time that happened!!! What am I going to do with myself??? Jaz is off from school, Rob is off of work too. So we'll snuggle in as a family and enjoy the time together. I still have a few gifts left to make. We'll have to make some cookies tomorrow for santa. Tonight we're going to look at christmas lights and drink hot chocolate. Rest and relaxation!

Weird Walmart Experience

I just got back from walmart. It's freezing cold outside but I had to go. We're having a party tonight and I needed some last minute things. I had Jacey and Phoenix with me. Cold, windy, trying to get the kids in the car and unload groceries. A man approaches me and asks me what kind of perfume I'm wearing. I immediately thought of the perfume/ether scare on snopes but I couldn't remember if it was true or not. Anyway I told him I don't wear perfume. Then he says that your husband must wear cologne. I said no and he asked are you sure? Again I said no, closed the door to my van and he left. I've been freakin out ever since!!! I probably overreacted and called walmart and the non emergency police #. He just wigged me out for some reason. After getting home and checking out the snopes site I see that it was just a rumor but you never know nowadays. Shivers!!!!!

9 degrees

With a windchill of -6. That's how stinkin cold it was this morning when I took Jaz to school. I can feel the draftiness of our house and I have rolled up towels along all the door and the doors to the bedrooms and bathrooms all shut tight. Cold, cold, cold, cold!! At least it's starting to feel like christmas. :) Now if we had some snow so that it would look like christmas.

Ah yes, I've fallen into the trap. The Twilight trap. :) Other friends of mine have raved about the books for months. Me, not being the one to read much more than a magazine cover to cover, couldn't quite believe their obsession with the books. I thought they were all part of the crazy vampire undead groupies. LOL We happened to be a the bookstore pickin out some books with Jacey for her birthday (Thanks mike and amanda!) and I found myself with a twilight book in my hand. Eh, what the heck I thought. May as well see what all the fuss is about. I bought it and put it next to my bed. I didn't pick it up for several days. Then one night I did. I read chapter one. I put it down and went to bed. The next night I picked it up again and I couldn't put it down until I was done! The same thing with the next book, and the next, and finally the next book. I've read all 4 books cover to cover in under a week. I loved them! Totally loved them. When I wasn't reading I was secretly finding myself wondering what was happening with Bella and Edward and of course Jacob. I don't want to give away anything by discussing the contents of the books but I do want to share that if you are even just the tiniest bit on the fence about the series at all......Just do it! Cave like I did. I promise you will love it just like I did.

For the most part my girls like to share. For the most part! But there are some things that I wish they wouldn't share. Jaz has shared her fifths disease with Jacey! This is one time I would have preferred her to be selfish and keep it all to herself. So now Jacey is covered with the lovely red rash and has rosy red cheeks. It only took what, 2 weeks for her to get it. So am I safe to assume that the baby will get it right before christmas????Sigh..........

Hello all

Hello all out there in bloggerland. I haven't forgotten about you. I promise! It's just been real busy and crazy around here. It's that time of the year I guess. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We enjoyed ours. :) Turkey, stuffing, praline sweet potatos, mashed potatos, cranberries, garlic cheese biscuits, cheeseball and pumpkin pie. YUMM-O! Then on friday Jaz, Jodi, and I went black friday shopping. We had a great time!!! This was Jaz's first year going and I thing she had a ball too. We hit walmart at open, then to sears, joanns, Mcdonalds for breakfast, target, jcpennys, bath and body works, hobby lobby, sisterscraps and then home before noon! Very busy, very fun, and we got all our shopping done. Now to see if I can get all the christmas presents done in time!! Yikes!!! I can't believe that it's the first of December already. I've got the christmas tree up but no lights or ornaments on it yet. That's the plan for today. To get it decorated. And the outside of the house too. We've got the lights up on the house but I still need to do the front door and porch. I really wish there were more hours in the day!
