It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas......

Oh how I love this time of year...... I know it is extra busy and it doesn't always bring out the best in people (which I've never understood); but I just love the spirit of the season!!!

We have the lights up on the house, the house decorated, tree up and decorated, most of the presents bought and wrapped and my Christmas cards out..... awwww..... just 2 or 3 gifts and I am D-O-N-E....well, done shopping!! I do have to do my baking.... but I will do that next week... and honestly that is one of my favorite holiday traditions-- reminds me of my mom!!! ;-)

My grandmother comes next week and we are having our big Christmas Eve dinner (which is a tradition in Joe's family) here this year.... so we have lots of planning left to do.... but you know what... I don't care.... It's beginning to look alot like Christmas------ BRING IT ON!!!

All About MeMe.... New Moon Edition

In honor of the Christmas season, Supahmommy and Mommybrain want to know:

5 laps I'd rather sit on than Santa........ and I wonder what I will tell them..... !!!

Hmmmmmmm, well since I just saw "New Moon" on Saturday.... and I am still on that high..... I think my list will be a New Moon Edition!!

1. Edward Cullen--- I mean, come on..... He may not be as buff as Jacob, but he is Edward..... and that's all that matters

2. Jacob Black-- Even though he is a bit young for me; and by that I mean, I could literally be his mother (if I were a teenage mom).... but whatever he did to get in shape for this movie..... WOWZA!!!!!

3. Sam and the other "werewolves"-- There is just something about a dark haired, dark-eyed, olive skinned, awesome body, STRONG, protective man (i mean werewolf)

4. Aro-- Now, this vampire is not good looking, AT ALL... but he is powerful.... and sometimes powerful is sexy!!

5. Jasper-- Ever since Twilight, there was always something about Jasper that peeked my interest.... Maybe because he is shy and timid, but dangerous on the inside....

Don't get me wrong.... there are plenty of "mortals" (Joe :-), Giles Marini, Derek Hough, Ben Bratt etc...) whose laps I could definitely keep warm..... but let me just dream and have fun with my imagination a little bit!!

Stomach Flu or Food Posioning....?

I think I am actually hoping that this is just food poisoning..... because if that is the case then I don't have to worry about the kids and Joe getting it from me!!!

It all started last night, after an awesome rib dinner (where I think I ate uncooked rib before it was ready).... I was having such bad stomach pains that I was in tears. I went from stomach pains to heaving to the "bathroom"..... uuugggghhhh.....

I am feeling better today, but definitely NOT 100%; and I have only eaten some mashed potatoes!!!

Dear Santa....

I haven't joined MamaKat and her writing projects in a LONG.... VERY LONG.... time. You know, I just haven't felt very creative; so, as to not bore everyone, I just stepped back for a little while....

But, in the spirit of Christmas, I have decided to jump back in.... hope you still like me Mrs. MamaKat!!

Dear Santa-
I think I have been pretty good this year…. I may have been a little mischievous during and after a night out with friends… but besides that, I am a good.girl. The kids have been (dare I say it) good; I mean they have their moments…boy do they ever….but they are kids and well, In the grand scheme of things, the kids have been good….they are even getting into the hang of getting their chores done without me telling them over and over!!
Let me first get past the whole “I want good health, peace, love and happiness for all”, because who doesn’t want that….. but there are a few things that I want:

A new laptop--- mine hit the crapper a few months ago and I have been (gasp) sharing with CJ and Joe… and Santa, I don’t like to share (shhhhh!!!)

A new camera--- I do like the one I have now, but you know I hate the fact the screen is messed up and has that black circle on it…. Which causes EVERYONE to mention it anytime they are taking a picture….even I have already told them not to worry about it.
And since you are getting me a new camera, I’d actually like one a bit bigger and fancier…. Pleeeassseee!!!

A good, long massage--- do I need to explain.....

But, Santa... what I really, really, really want is.....

for these 4 kids to have the best Christmas ever.... You know I love these little hellions (err, I mean angels) with all my heart-- and I love making memories and traditions to carry on for all of theie lives....

Post it Notes..... AND Some Vacay Pics

Wow, it's been a couple weeks since I've been able to "speak my mind"..... but I am back, my friends!!

We had a really great time on vacation.... we drove from Florida to PA and then on our way back stopped in DC for Thanksgiving and to see the sites!! I will share lots of pictures later, but for now....................

Anyone else have an Elf on your shelf?? And do you love it as much as me??
And just because I know you can't wait.... here are a couple pictures from our trip.... The boys where with their dad for the week--which killed me by the way--- so that is why there are none of them :-(
