Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope everyone else did also!
The kids got up around 8am and we went down stairs. Jack wasn't really too sure what to think. He just wanted everything out of the boxes so he could play with it. His favorite was probably his Buzz Lightyear and Woody. I think Sam was very happy with what Santa left for her, a nano and Julie american girl doll. My mom made us some awesome ornaments, and some throw pillows. Around 10:30 am my h's mom came over and we cooked breakfast. Then we opened gifts from her. Samantha loved the portable dvd player she got, she was so upset it didn't work, I had to ship it back. Then we cleaned up.... well tried to at least. The house still isn't clean. The we took Jack to his first movie (Alvin & the Chipmunks, The Squeakquel) at the theaters. He lasted about 45 min. then we had to leave. He will probably do better in another year. Then we came home and Jeff cooked us a wonderful Christmas dinner.

On Christmas Eve, we go to my h's grandmother's house and eat and open gifts there. Then we go to my h's dad's house and open gifts there. Jack got a basketball hoop and that talking truck that dances it is so cute his name is Rocky. Sam got a purse and gift cards. We got home around 9 pm put out the milk & cookies for Santa and the kids went to bed.

Yes, I did type the word SNOW! We are getting Snow! It is so wonderful to see the white stuff so close to Christmas! I hope it snows all night long and we wake up to a few feet! I can wish... right?
I did start my baking, I have done chocolate chip and peanut butter kiss cookies. I still want to make gingerbread and sugar.
Jack was so funny we where getting ready to leave to go eat dinner and he asked for a cookie. I told him after dinner he could have one. I went into the garage and came back and he had got his stool and was getting a cookie off the counter. He really wanted a cookie!
Our outside heat pump is frozen, so we have no heat! I hope it doesn't get too cold tonight.
We all have 4 blankets on our beds.

I can't believe it is Friday, This week flew by. I still haven't done any baking. Maybe this weekend. We are going to get snow they say... I won't hold my breath, but I will cross my fingers!
Jack didn't want to go to sleep last night until after 10pm. So he is taking a nap. I think he really needs a nap, but it seems like I have so much to try and do in a day. We took the dog to the vet this am and waited for an hour before we saw the Dr. at least he didn't charge me for the office visit, all I had to pay for was the shot and his special dog food. It was so funny, in the waiting room there were 3 black pugs, Jack said look at the cats. I said Jack I don't see any cats in this room. It was so funny, I said those are dogs! =)
I got my hair trimmed yesterday, ahhhh, I love it, my hair is just too thick to let it get too long.
Sam didn't go to school yesterday b/c when we got there they had the fire dept. and they were sending all the kids to the primary school. I said forget that and just brought her home. There was some kind of unidentified odor.
I need to clean up a little before it is time to go get Sam.

Happy Friday to all!!

Ready for Christmas

I am all ready for Christmas! Well, pretty much, just need to get a couple little things.
I did make another trip to Toys R' Us today, I have enough I need to stop but I had to go get Jack a Buzz Lightyear. He loves the Toy Story movies! He is a such a great age!
Jack did sit on Santa's lap, with sissy. I didn't think that was going to happen, it was a nice surprise!

Before he got on his lap and was checking him out from a far. He screamed to Santa "I NEED CARS". It was so cute, It was one of those moments I wish I would have had a video camera.
I was really surprised that Santa doesn't give out candy canes anymore. That is what I always remembered getting as a child. I was also a little sad when I heard that the post offices weren't taking Santa letters this year. They have been doing it every year since 1912.

But on a happy note our tree is up, the stockings are hung, and I think, I hope it will stay cold outside. The day before yesterday we had our air on. When we put up the tree, yep we had our air on. It is hard to get in the Christmas mood when it is 70 outside.
The dog got a bath today, he is having his itching issues, he goes to the vet on Friday. I am trying to get the vet just to give him a cortisone shot every 6 weeks or so.
Sam hasn't gone to school the last 2 days, she has just been under the weather. It is hard to make her go to school this time of year. She just got a new teacher, b/c her teacher has left on maternity leave.
I am enjoying getting Christmas cards everyday now! I still need to figure out what Christmas cookies I am going to make.

Happy Dec. 1st

It is here, I knew it would come before I knew it.
We have almost all our shopping done, just a few small things left on our lists. I have started wrapping today. Trying to get my packages ready to mail. I am hoping to get them out this week but, I don't think it will happen.
My H is leaving on Thursday to go to TN, with his dad. I hope to get up all the Christmas decor while he is gone.
Jack is still loving his cars, today when we went to get Sam at school he had to bring all of them in this small backpack. It was so heavy it weighed as much as him. I kept thinking he was going to fall over.
I got a used dinning room table from my mother in law. I was so happy she gave it to us. It gives us so much more room!
Sam has to get her allergy shots today, the doctors office has moved. I just hope J is a good boy. He won't take a nap these days. I know he is tired. And I know I could get so much more done if he would take a nap.
I hope everyone has a good week!
