The hustle.....of Christmas

Most of the time I am done least a couple weeks before Christmas.   Not this year!  I did not even get the annual family photo taken!  The photo is my Christmas guess that means,  No card from our family this year.    Maybe I will get something in the mail for New Years!   may be, not.
 Two days ago I tried to get the last of my shopping done.  I am in the store....really having trouble picking out the gift!   Now keep in mind.....I do NOT like shopping.   I love giving gifts!  I just don't like SHOPPING!
Everything I looked at that I thought was a good idea....wrong size,  wrong color,  wrong, wrong, wrong.
This was the 3rd store I was was already feeling tired.  With a nice, huge neck ache!  Finally found what I needed!!!!!   YES! I am out-a-here!  So I am standing in a pretty short line,  and all of a sudden there was a bunch of commotion.......some one threw-up a couple isles over! Not someone little either!.....didn't even squat down to keep it in one you can imagine... puke was just every where!   Not just in one nice little spot!  EVERYWHERE!  and A LOT of it!   Oh-my.... I have had to clean a lot of that up in my day,  but boy was I glad it wasn't me to have to clean it up that day!
Needless to say I fell asleep EARLY  that night....on the couch till 3 am.

I am so glad that all the hustle bustle at Christmas time is not what Christmas it about!
Christmas.....the day we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus!  Born in a manger.    What a night that must have been!  Merry Christmas to all of you!   and remember.....Jesus  is what Christmas is really all about!

CANDY !!!!

Two of my favorite candies.  Ribbon candy, more for the looks than the taste.
And homemade peanut brittle...I always add extra peanuts!
I have found I need to be very careful eating it teeth have trouble handling it!
Making three kids gave me ..... not so good teeth!

Busy butt! His job is a real pain right now...has been for quite some time, so it is good to just stay busy!  Usually this is my job....but this time he did it!  I usually do it while I am in the shower, but this time it needed the harsh cleaner job...ya know, bleach......I hate the smell of bleach, in fact I asked him if it wasn't to strong and opened the window, didn't seem to bother him and I was literally gagging and had to leave the room!  He did a really good job!  Maybe this can be his job from now on!  ( wishful thinking!)
It looks better than when I do it!   Thanks!

Some days I feel like I need to get a life!  People call to check in and ask:  What are you doing?  Well the same thing I do every day.  Get up at 5:15, shower, make lunches, make breakfast, bring people to school, daycare kids come at 6:40,  clean kitchen, figure out what to have for supper, do laundry, make bed...sometimes!, vacuum, do crafts or color , make snacks, wipe butts, change diapers, wipe noses and goopy eyes...yes goopy eyes...hope it is not pink eye!  Bring kids to play lands or rec-center, go to $ store for cheap color books, play games, watch Curious George, walk the dog, change more diapers, play toys, and take a nap,.....Okay I am in the mood for a chick flick, not a rented at the theater!!!  
1 John 5:12   He who has the Son, has life!     I know I have a life, now to just get a little more fun into it!

Jack Frost

Jack Frost has decided to visit Colorado!  It is 8 degrees!  This is colder that normal!  The squeak of the snow under my feet and the bite on my nose from the cold, cold air reminds me of growing up in Minnesota!  I am a wimp when it is this cold...unless of course, I was ice fishing or 4-wheeling or something fun like that.   This week we had the carbon monoxide detector go off......furnace is dead!   Our pickup truck is broke....needs a new rear end, and is too old to put a lot of money in.   "when it rains in pours"   So today I will look at the positive..... The new heater is in and working great!  We had enough money to get one.  Even if Christmas will be slim this year, we are all warm and full and have warm running water!  Even though we are down to one car for a bit,  I am glad I can still walk the dog and get on the floor to play with the little kids!  So whether I like Jack Frost or not he sure is very pretty!
