Pretty realistic for a puzzle!

Kacey is a local girl going to college and on her way to
to a wonderful music career. She sang at the elementary school
Christmas program and had all those kids in love with her! Hunter
still can't believe she's a facebook friend of mine! I hope she
gets her "big break" and that her dreams come true.

My sicky...

I should have listened when I heard "my stomach hurts today",
but like any parent, I figured it would get better. D'OH! I got
the call at 11am..."come get your kid, he's throwing up"
wasn't those exact words, but you got the gist of it! My kids
rarely get sick and for that I am grateful. It must be my payback
from when they were constantly sick when they were in daycare. So
I need to listen when I hear them complaining. :(

So whenever he gets sick, he wants to take a bubble bath. And when
he gets out, he always feels better. Not sure if it's psychological
or if he just feels clean. I won't complain, he always smells better!
I did find out that I've got awesome natural lighting in my bathroom
in the afternoons!


He feels better, but he's got tired eyes.


Bubbles, bubbles, everywhere!

And then it snowed...

Not sure where the last week has gone...laundry still waiting
to be folded, pictures still needing framed, floors still needing
to be washed...and here it is almost the middle of the month. Did
I sleep through the last week?! Because it just flew by! And now
I'm 5 days away from Christmas break and the kids being home for
the next 2 1/2 weeks...well, scratch that...they're off school
today. :( I'm hoping they go back tomorrow!!!

We had been hearing about the snow coming for the last few days.
It was supposed to start after midnight Saturday night. It didn't.
It started about 12 hours later. And for some reason they did not
brine our roads, so by late afternoon, even though we had less
than an inch, our roads were awful. Coming home from the band concert
was pretty hairy, so I was prepared for the upcoming announcement
that there would not be school on Monday. It's pretty for the day
and then it's time to go...and start praying for school tomorrow!


It's 7am and only MY kids are out in the freezing cold!


Gotta love the kool-aid mustache at 7am!


Even the birds are cold!

Christmas Concert

My first try at low lighting...I did a few manual settings
and then flipped it over to a non-flash setting. Wanted to get
"some" decent shots. :) I think these came out ok.

Holiday baking has begun and as with all things, I've trimmed
my list of goodies for a select few favorites. This is a new,
refined favorite...actually, it's just my new favorite cookie,
bar...whatever slice of heavenly yummy-ness you want to call it. It
is the "typical" 7 layer bar recipe that I always make...BUT...I
saw this addition HERE  and had to try it. Words cannot describe
this heavenly goodness...please do not drool on your keyboard!

Christmas season

The tree's finally up and's not my favorite chore to
do, so the kids take over. We are limited as to where it goes, so furniture
gets rearranged and it just throws things our of wack. Oh well, it's
only for a few weeks...I can suck it up. Heaven knows there's plenty
of things to keep me busy enough not to worry about it!

I saw a picture on Flickr the other day that gave me the idea, so as I was rearranging the ornaments after the kids were finished decorating it,
I found an ornament that they had each made and made a cute little print.

Good golly, where did November...much less the year, go?!
25 days until's time to get busy. Threw this
together this morning as a possible gift, but decided against
it. Unless I can find a reasonable 12x12 frame, it will not
happen. But I've said that before, so who knows. I think it
turned out ok.
