Screen Saver

My little sister, McCall, made the picture using "paint" and used it
as her desktop background. It is adorable! I commented to her that I
loved how everyone's eyes are different sizes from the other one. I
also think it's cute that Garrett has a halo. She artistically
captured everyone's "look". So fun!

Mom is the the the ...

this year

I have yet to start Christmas shopping.
I have not wanted to do much about Christmas. I have been physically & emotionally worn out. I do not have a single present purchased. I still have time right? I will kick it into gear soon (I hope). Nate will pull through if all else fails, he wanted to be in charge last year for everything and did great.
Maybe we'll celebrate Christmas in January. I am finally decorating the tree tonight- so that puts me only a couple of weeks behind.

Finished Pizzas

The boys ate the pizzas they made.

Poor Nixon

Now Nixon has croup. Nate was trying to comfort him & he was mad at
Nate. It was funny/ cute.

Abaigail is Krew's "girlfriend" they like to talk on the phone. And
end their conversations with "I love you".
Krew is upset in this picture because
1. I took his lightsaber
2. Abaigail wanted to play freeze tag
3. Abagail didn't kiss him
4. He doesn't think she likes him anymore.
5. I said it was time to go

Eating Reindeer Cookies

Hen Pecked

Nixon was pecked by mom's chickens. Funny but scary for him.

iPod Problem

My boys pulled the cord out of my radio so now I can't play my iPhone/iPod
on the radio. I have looked and couldn't find where it reconnects so
today I went to the dealership for help. They said it connects to the
back of the radio & they would have to remove the radio to fix it.
And they wanted $150 for the labor. Yeah right. Thanks for the help. I
will fix it myself. Now I know I have to get the radio out .... Google!

Watch out! Now I know how to remove radios I might steal yours. Haha.

The vacuum was laying down and Krew popped it up with his foot & it
popped him in the eye. Hard not to laugh because I could not believe
this happened.

Tree of Memory

Our family went to the cemetery tonight for a Christmas program,to
hang an ornament with my brother's name & visit his grave. It's still
shocking that this is reality with my brother and that he is really
gone. My kids really miss Garrett too.

Mr. Incredible Feeds Chickens

We helped my Mom at her house today with dogs, chickens & horses.

My Little Reindeer

Dear Santa...

I am tired of telling my kids that I will not buy them every toy we
pass in a store, so with Christmas coming I have resorted to a new
response "Let's take a picture for Santa". This works amazingly. I
will have to figure out how to handle this after the holidays.

Le Reve

Laurel, I am glad we finally got our schedules (& husbands) together.
We'll do it again.

The show was so fun! How amazing.
