Do you want to see the worst santa picture ever????


Okay so it really isn't the worst, but I really wish Payton would have told me that she was not going to participate before I paid $$$$ to get my kids picture taken with Santa.

Thanks for coming to see me!!!

Jer and I have always lived in the boonies, so it is kind of hard for anyone to come to our house. So when we moved to Jct I thought that we would be very accessible, our only problem is that we are never home. So Megan had a Dr appointment, so Mom and Megan were going to come over on Thursday. Well on my way home from work on Wed I called Megan to see what time they were coming the next day. She says oh we are coming tonight. Ahh tonight, I then start speeding home. Luckily I had been trying to clean the night before, but there were still a few things I wanted to get done before my Mom came to my house. Plus the day before Payton had been sick, and for some reason my kids have forgotten how to use the potty, so if something wasn't pooped or peed on it was puked on. Luckily most everyone brought their own blanket and pillows, so I only had to fill in the gaps. So anyway I started defrosting chicken for dinner, but then when Mom got there she offered to take us out to dinner. So we went to Applebees. I had a steak which I had been craving! Thanks Mom! The next day I made everyone get ready and go to the mall to get my kids picture taken with Santa. That went well, Payton would not even get close to the guy, and then I took Parker to school. We spent the day shopping, and found a few things for the kids. Mostly "soft pants" for Payton, who will only wear soft pants, and this is killing her jean loving Mom. Anyway I just wanted to say thanks for coming to see me, and taking me shopping it was lots of fun.

Appropriate Christmas Gifts

I have gotten Parker's teacher and teacher's aide gifts, I have gotten Parker's STEP teachers gifts, so I was thinking for his bus driver and office staff something small. I told him we should give them a bottle of Rootbeer with a tag that says have a Rootin' Tootin' Christmas. And he said yah and a "Bucking New Year!" I just didn't think that was appropriate, but it made me smile and I thought that I would post it here for you all to get a giggle, and who knows I bet our nieghbor Bryson would love it.

Bad Kittie

I have a bad, bad, kittie, but we can't wait to take him to Pine Lodge. We think that when he gets there he will find his calling in life. MICE!, in Pine lodge he will be able to run through the walls and attack things. Our kittie stands on the kitchen chairs and waits for you to walk by and then he attacks everyone. He is also way to smart, he knows that Payton's door doesn't latch correctly, even when you pull the door hard, the latch just doesn't click. Well the cat uses this time to attack the baby. He waits until she is asleep, then he goes in attacks her. I go in and get him out, and then he waits until she falls asleep again. Here is a movie of the naughty kittie, who Parker says isn't getting anything for Christmas.

Tonight we went to Parker's school craft night, it was very fun and the kids got to make some fun goodies. We had some good eats too, but nothing was left to take a picture of. They also had gift baskets that each class made that they were auctioning off to give the proceeds to Toys for Tots. Today Parker kept calling it Toys for Todds, and then he told me that he wished that his name was Todd. I explained that it was really Toys for Tots, and then he said "Oh!, Payton is a Tot." Oh well I tried.
Our class did a Romantic Pasta Basket, it turned out very pretty. When I went to look at it it was only at $30.00, so I bid $35.00, and just kept thinking I really didn't want that basket, I hope someone out bids me. When the bidding was over I went back to check, and luckily someone had out bid me. Thank goodness! I was very impressed with the things that were donated to make the baskets so nice.

Mom - I just wanted you to know that I finally got my kitchen counter cleaned off. I know that it took me a day longer than planned, but I didn't just move junk around I put it away, mailed it off, and filed it in the correct places.



Just a picture of my kitchen table to show that I didn't pile things on top of it. I am hopelessly lost on a Christmas Centerpiece for my table, so if anyone has any ideas let me know.

Okay so I do have to confess I do have one corner where I have piled some things that need fixed for work, folded clothing that needs to be put away, and Christmas gifts that just need a little bit more work.But look we have our stockings ready to be filled, minus the one stocking holder that is turned the wrong way. Hopefully I will make it back to Hobby Lobby to get it exchanged.

And here is my Charlie Brown tree, it is super pokie, so the kids don't touch it, but the kittie doesn't seem to mind. Our star is a little tilted to the left, but I think it just adds character, when Jer sees it he will fix it.



I don't know what setting the camera was on but the lights looked neat.



Okay so my house is clean, my kids are sleeping, because I threatened them that if they got out of bed we would not go to sit on Santa's lap tomorrow. So now I am going to bed so I have extra energy to chase my kids in the Mall.



Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
