Something funny...

You know that you have a good bra on when someone asks you if you got implants or had surgery!!!! This happened to me yesterday at work by a coworker!

Christmas pics and update coming soon.

Merry Christmas to you all!

Today's the last day at work for me. I'm looking forward to some much needed time off and I won't be on a computer so this is the last post for a while. Not like I've been posting regularly anyway huh?

I've been crazy busy lately but also had a little scare that had me slow down and focus a little more attention on myself than I normally would. (In short - I fainted last weekend and fell flat on my face! Seem to be okay now so no worries - just a beat up face.)

I am happy to say that I managed to get all of my Christmas shopping done in 2 weeks time, got them wrapped and shipped! Did Christmas cards including a letter and family picture, even made some holiday treats to pass out to our neighbors! It's not as much as I normally would give but I feel okay with it with the current circumstances, ha!

On a different note - I've been waiting for the movie Precious to open up in our area and this weekend was it. Drug my husband with me and I'm glad I saw it. I expected to be more emotional during it but came away really shocked - I couldn't cry!

Oh and before I forget, how about my Cowboys? I can't say that I was completely confident going into the game but I loved everything that I saw! Way to go Dallas!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!

35 today - that sounds so warm!

Finally, some relief from the single digit and negative tempatures! I'm excited!

Just got the call that Opal got a room at the PetsHotel for our Christmas trip home. She was on a waiting list and I was so nervous that I would have to try to make other arrangements at the last minute! Whew, that's such a relief for me!

Have a great weekend everyone! We are busy with sports so ours will fly by. Plus, I've received a few Christmas cards in the mail so I've been convicted and will start working on ours today. (Thought I might get away with not doing them but nooooooo! Ha!)

Ice in the toilet!

Someone told Aidan at school yesterday that if you put ice in your toilets we'll get a snow day from school. He did it and it worked - we had a snow day today! I woke up at 5:30, checked the news and saw that every school district in town was closed. Off to sleep I went again!

It's only Tuesday but I needed this day off badly! See, I worked 6 days last week to make up some from Thanksgiving and was a bit tired. I had just told Shelly yesterday that I hadn't even decorated for Christmas yet and didn't know if I would.

Got it done on my snow day though (thanks to that ice in the toilet)!

Now, a quick vacuum and I'm going to make some cookies. I've been wanting to do this for a while also! The wind has been howling outside for most of the day so the snow isn't getting shoveled today but I'm hoping it'll be blown away and I'll luck out tomorrow morning. A girl can hope right?

Thanksgiving recap!

My sister and her family came to visit us! It was fun to have girls in the house for a change, ha! We had a blast - hung out in Denver a bit, went to the zoo, to Helen Hunt Falls, the guys played flag football on Thanksgiving Day while the girls hung out and got the big meal ready, and then went Black Friday shopping at 3:45 a.m!
Yes, the boys have on shorts! Anytime the sun is out and it seems warm - they try this!

Lots of snow at the top of the trail of Helen Hunt Falls.

The boys love to climb. It terrifies me.

Alyssa jumped right in there and climbed a bit too. We all slipped a bit here and there but came away injury free!

The Wood family. Thanks so much for taking the time and money to visit us! Can't wait until we do it again.

Blind Side

If you haven't seen this yet - GO SEE IT!

Beautiful movie, one of my favorites by far. The boys loved it also. It was so much fun to watch the Ravens play this weekend because we could find #74, Michael Oher and in some way it felt like we knew him.
