I'm still alive

Just thought I would let everyone know(if you care)that I am still alive. I really don't even have the time to tell you everything that I have done this week. I think I woke up Mon. morning, breathed in and haven't exhaled yet! I'm sure everyone is just as busy. I'll be really glad when we can relax a little in the next few days. We had gifts, food, etc. that had to be made and wrapped all last week for different things but I made it through. I have a million one things to do still today so I better get back on it. I'll be posting pictures next week when I can exhale again!:)
Hope everyong has a very Merry Christmas and a Great New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slow Learner

I guess I'm a very slow learner. Someone had just posted the other day something about---when a kid says there stomach hurts---believe them. Well, yesterday morning Jaida had been grouchy all morning while we were getting ready for school----whining, saying "I'm tired" and being very dramatic. I gave her her herbs, and vitamins to take and she whined about that too. She took one and said ---mom it feels like it got stuck in my throat. I said get your shoes on you are fine--(if I had only known). Then she starts whining--my stomach hurts, my stomach hurts, my stomach hurts---(get the point?). I'm saying get your coat on you are fine----------then it all came up on the floor---thankfully not on a carpeted floor!
So, now maybe I will listen when she says----MY STOMACH HURTS!!!! Or I might just think she is overreacting.

Wanted: Legal Advice

Just needed some legal advice so I thought I'd get it from the blogasphere. This morning after much arguing and bossing(on the part of Jordan to Jalen)Jalen asked me if he could divorce Jordan???? Is that legal? Just wondering! Please let me know because I think they have reached the point of irreconcilable differences!

Wow! Alot has taken place since my last blog entry. I wish so bad that I was good at taking pictures but, I am not. So, here are a few things that we have done and I hope I can post some pictures later. One slight problem was I couldn't find my camera for a few days. Since we have had sooooo many things stolen in the last yr. when I can't find something I automatically assume it was stolen. Well, I forgot that Jenny had borrowed it! So,everything we did I was asking people to take pictures for me. Now I have to somehow get those.
One of the great things we did was we went to Yuletide Celebration on the Circle. It was totally awesome. Sandi Patty was back and the African children's choir sang. It was so moving from the first song!!! I would love to go again but it is a little pricey!
I have been trying to finish up Christmas shopping. Jeff and I went Sat. to try to finish up the kids stuff. I even had a list and we just didn't find everything. We had fun though and ate at Don Pablos so that was worth the trip!
Our kids had their christmas program on Fri. night. I had volunteered my help with Jaida's class. I didn't do alot but it still took some time with practice, stage etc. They all did such a good job.
This week is pretty full too. We had practice for church program last night we have small group Wed. night, Jaida has her very first piano recital Thurs. night and in between all of that---------I need to finish Christmas shopping, Rachel and I get to decorate tables for the Church Christmas dinner(notice I said get?!)so we need to shop for that, I need to wrap Christmas presents, of course my house needs cleaned, and a million one other things but I love the season and all the busyness that it brings!
Sunday is our church program with caroling that evening. So, there will be cookies to bake and things to make. The kids have a practice on Sat. with cookies to bake for that. WHEW! I'm tired just thinking about all of it. And, here I sit blogging, guess I better get up and get something done!!
Merry Christmas!

My Beautiful Daughter!

Hi Janae :)!

Dressing up!

I just love this picure---I think it is so cute--two little girls playing dress up!


This is what my kids are dreaming of and we are supposed to get some tonight!
This picture is of the huge snow we got last year.

New Style

I was browsing through pictures and came across this!!! This is at Sea World---the lady had her skirt on backwards and I sneaked a picture! It actually looked funnier when you could see the back pockets in the front.


This is a picture of our kids last Christmas. Just thought it a little strange that Old Navy has the exact sweater again this year that Jalen wore last year and Macy's and Kohl's have the exact dress this year that Jaida wore. What do they do put them in storage and pull them back out?? I guess I could save myself some $$ and let them wear them again??!!
