I just read this post over at "Navel Gazing At Its Finest" A blog that should be on everyone must read first thing in the morning list, she is so funny and original that Dr.'s should start prescribing her to sad and/or depressed people her only side effect (and it is dangerous) is that she is highly addictive:) Personally I would prescribe her even if you weren't depressed which gets me to another interesting point that I have been mulling over for the last couple of weeks, apparently my sweet wonderful husband who loves me very very much ( I think ) believes that I am hopelessly pessimistic, constantly negative and extremely depressed.
Sorry just give me a minute I have to go laugh my butt off...........................

OK I just have to wonder you know, why? My soul is constantly running with unicorns and dancing with fairies and blowing bubbles in the shape of hearts, OK so maybe not that bad, but you know what I mean. I will confess to being realistic, just in a cheerful happy sort of way:

"darling daughter if you don't clean up your room I am sure a happy family of moles will move right in and eat your clothes and nibbles your toes while you sleep"


OK, Life is hard and we all have our dreams, I have them, Joff has them, we all do but sometimes certain dreams need to die and now that I think of it that could be what he means, I am not so much of a pessimisticly negative depressed person as I am a dream killer, dream assassin (how much does that pay I wonder). Well OK things are becoming clearer as I type, I am gleeful in my new found role. Wonderful. Hallelujah. Dream Assassin now taking contracts, call me and we can work out a deal:)

I feel better! A major problem solved!

On the Surface

Did everyone have a fantastical magical Christmas? We did, kids woke up whooped and hollered because Santa had not only come and left there stockings full of wonder he had also eaten there not so edible sugar cookies and the reindeer had nibbled at our soggy carrots, he truly is a great guy.
I won't bore you with what we all got, girls got girl things, boys got boy things etc. I on the other hand must tell you about something I got! I received the ginormous edition of the Uncle Johns Bathroom reader, a series of books that I not only revere but will become the core curriculum of any homeschooling I might do in the future (pray for my poor children:)

But I am impatient there are so many tales to tell from the last couple of days but I have to tell this one the most:

I was driving on our road back to my house when around the corner comes a man walking down the road, it was apparent from the direction he was coming from that he had been walking for a little while, he was not an old man, perhaps Joff's age, he was not dressed well for the weather which was a balmy 12 degrees, as I drove passed him I slowed down and noticed that he was carrying a beautifully wrapped package in his hand and for some reason I went" wow!" Oh I don't know who he is, who the package was for or anything else, but it struck me as so wonderful somehow.

One last time.
Merry Christmas and love to you all.

Christmas Eve, Eve

Thats what my kids are saying anyway, yesterday was Christmas eve, eve, eve just so you know.

This morning when Felicity didn't come out of her room at her usual and horrific hour of 7:00 am I went in and said
"Hey Lollypop what's up"
she replied
"Shhh I am trying to stay asleep till Christmas"
Ok then, goodlucky with that........

Later this afternoon............

"Mommy they cats opened the presents............again."
Uhhuh, sure they did.

Dinner time.................

"Its Christmas we should get icecream and cookies for dinner"

Heres to hoping your Christmas week is turning out as fun mine:)

Waa and Boo Hoo and a very Merry Christmas too.

Well we are going to be without the Internet for a while (GASP!) I have no clue how I will survive, thankfully I have wonderful relatives right next door with the net so I can still make an attempt at survival but it will be iffy, we will see. Blogging will more sporadic then ever:(

But hey I want to wish everyone A very Merry Christmas, I sincerely hope that you have a day that if nothing else you will be filled with contentment, happiness and the joy of Christ's birth.

Love, Hugs and Kisses.

Speaking of a White Christmas.........

White Christmas Cartoon Song

I think I have watched this a hundred times now and I am still laughing.

Its the final count down now folks, if you don't buy it now chances are it will be gone or can't be shipped without a sum that will be three times the amount of what you are buying, lol.
In anycase what ever your last minute Christmas woes are this video should at least make you go back into the ring smiling.

I woke up this morning not wanting to get out of bed at all, with a to-do list a mile long I would rather have stayed in bed,now I am back from running some errands, listening to The Chipmunks Christmas CD and straightening up and putting up a few decorations, I just wrapped a few more presents and I just had to stop in and say hi and Merry Christmas.
Does the stress of life really matter when Christmas music is playing, when there is wrapping paper being mauled by kittens, when the whole house smells of cinnamon and bread, when you are sipping a cup of cocoa topped with whippedcream and sprinkles, lots of sprinkles:)
Merry Christmas and Love to you all.

No title

Well we are still having issues, oh well it will have to wait for a couple of days I am working on my other blog ( Photography), finishing up my last sessions for the year and trying to get all my Christmas decorations up, I should be done decorating by New Years:)
I will toss up a link to Giraffic Design, can't promise it will stay though, things keep appearing and disappearing, but I would be heartbroken if you couldn't download the newest coloring pages:) Oh and tonight (maybe tomorrow:0) I will be uploading some Christmas tags, I will have them in color and B&W.

WoW is it cold today.

UhOh Something is Wonky!

We are having some bloggy issues, I found the most fantastic blog and of course I backed up all my widgets and such before uploading it, but it is just not working correctly, hang with me I will figure this out.
So much for a early bedtime tonight..................:)

Catnip for Kids

That's what Christmas is.
Just the mention that Christmas is a mere 19 days away sends my kids screaming for joy, climbing walls and running in circles till they pass out.
Don't tell my kids but if I here another performance of "We wish you a merry Christmas" I might cry or scream or check into the nearest asylum, maybe a combination of all three.
And then of course we have one kid who is totally NOT getting it, everyday he reminds us that he needs to go buy presents for himself, so he can wrap them, then unwrap them and scream for joy (again).
Where is January when you need it?

P.S Did you check out Giraffic Design yet? You didn't did you, well its never to late and I am going to be posting some Christmas coloring pages on Monday, check it out, check it out:)

P.S.S My fabulously talented SIL Patty is going to be opening her Baby Accessories store in just a few short weeks, as soon as I get a link I will post it:)

Merry Christmas

I am following a debate going on over in another place on the net.
Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?
My Thoughts?
What the heck does it matter? Truly I would love it if everyone was LDS, but hey everyone isn't and I am content with that (for now ,muhahahah:) I say that the Lord teaches to Love thy Neighbor, he didn't specify that neighbor to be only Christian. People are so worried there faith/culture will not be recognized they will get offended over anything anymore and I find it downright ridiculous, I cannot read minds, so I just wish everyone a Merry Christmas and if they wish me a Happy Holiday/Kwanzaa/Chanukah I will say thank you and wish it right back at them because anyway you look at it they are wishing something Happy at you, they are extending goodwill toward you, receive it kindly and put aside your bitterness I promise you will go to bed a happier person.

Check it out!

Who has a new bloggy, hmmmmm? ME! Ok well its all about Joff and his art, or actually its not even really about him just his art, lol:)
Check it out, just click on that lovely (and huge, need to fix that) Giraffic Design button to the left, please tell me what you think, I will be adding a few of his childrens stories as I go along along with pictures and downloadable coloring pages and such, I have such wonderful plans.......... Thanks for looking:D

Cinnamon-Orange Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Oh I know I was going to do a Christmas Goodies post and I will but I it will have to wait till next week, as I am jam packed this week with other things ( like watching the entire last two seasons of CSI, lol, I wish......). Anywhoo for our cookie swap I made Cinnamon Orange Chocolate chip cookies, they were surprisingly good and if cooked for just the right amount of time are perfect, I am not fond of crunchy cookies but if you cook them too long dip them in milk and they are back to there nummy goodness:)
Okay then this link-a-dink will take you to the Taste of Home page featuring this exotic classic.
Oh one more thing, for some bizarre reason they ask you to roll out your dough and then cut the cookies, well I just don't think so, no way, uh no thank you, use a cookie scoop, tablespoon, make them rounded little dough balls, they will taste way better.
Go on then, bake and be merry:).
