Little man


Tryng out blogger by phone

Ahhh.. Christmas :)

Christmas was so much fun! The girls got so much stuff and Miguel really apprecited the concept this year and got so much into it. It was too cute!

I got a power cordless drill and I'm itching to use it already! The kids also got me various little presents that were awesome, like Pj's, a snowglobe and a music card from Walmart :)

I gave Pat a Red Sox watch, a watch valet, which is like a jewerly box for watches, a grooming kit, a little wooden thing that says "If you live to be a hundred I want to live to a hundred minus one, so I never have to be without you" I thought it was so beautiful.

We've had family and friends over for Christmas Eve and visited with family that is in from out of town. the kids are thrilled with their stuff and now we have a little get together on the 31st planned and then comes Three Kings day which is a much smaller giving day for our kids.

On the 9th of January Miguel has surgery scheduled for a Hernia, please keep us in your thoughts that everything goes very well and he recovers quickly, the little man in question is presently playing with his massive Thomas the Tank Engine train track which he loves!!! He actualy will play all by himself for a really long time!!

Ok gotta go put some gas (batteries) on the trains.

I'll put up some pictures later :)

I've changed some of the order and stuff in the blog to see how I like it.

Do you?

And for Christmas Miguel got ....

a Mohawk!! LOL, I swear he asked for it. So here he is, looking very very cute, though I shocked the socks out of a lady at Walmart that literally stared at us with mouth wide open! Here he is. Everyone thinks he looks a lot like Angelina Jolie's cute little boy Maddox, I think Miguel is cuter but I'm sure Angelina feels the same way about her boy :)

Jumping in the leaves, everyone had fun but Miguel had the most jumping over and over again.

Here's the kids with Santa

Christmas is almost here!

Vacation is starting today for us. The weather this week is supposed to be mild so I want the kids to spend as much time outside as possible, I'm planning on going to Tulsa to take them to the Zoo.

I haven't heard yet from the furniture people so Pat is asking me to call them, I figured it will get here when it's ready. I'm knitting this really cool shawl for myself its done with this "suede" yarn and it's heavenly, I can't wait to finish it. :)

Yesterday Santa came to our church and it was so cute, Miguel was the first one up and he sat on Santa's lap and told him his list "Star Wars, Fire Truck and Candy" LOL

Pat took the girls to see Eragon at the theatre and they thought it was pretty good, it's going to be rental for me because I'm not a terrific theatre person, but I've read the books and I think the author is such a gifted person, it's an awesome story.

I'm reading one of my favorite authors: Janet Evanovich, Hard Twelve, I got it for free at the Library :D She cracks me up so bad...

Ok, I'm going to start the day, the kids should sleep well, Miguel rode his bike and got utterly filthy digging and throwing rocks and went to sleep pretty easily last night and I never heard a peep out of him. The kid plays hard. Larisa also got 2 hamsters this weekend, 2 little dwarf hamsters, the first one is very sweet but the 2nd one is more aggressive and it bit her and she was broken hearted but he has been a lot better, poor guy was at Petco and has not been handled much.

On the 12th day of Chrismas...

my true love gave to me... a partridge in a pear tree (disguised as a breakfast nook table set, and china)

Yep we got the furniture. No date yet on the delivery but who cares I just want to know I will have one in the near future. :D

I mailed my Xmas cards today and my present for my secret Santa. I hope she likes it, I did some of it and bought the rest.

I bought a DVD set called Yoga, Ballet, Booty. And boy the work the booty part... I ended up with a cramp. The abdominal workout is fierce but it felt good. I've managed to remain good in my diet and I have stayed at 118 lbs pretty evenly. I think I will join the next challenge again so I can stay motivated to exercise and diet properly.

It's mild around here today, school got done early and the house is in pretty good shape, I'm knitting and learning to crochet.

We are not really finished with shopping but I hope we can get done this weekend.

Ok, gotta work on more laundry... yippee....

WEll, well...

I'm back!

Its been a few weeks since I last wrote. WE've done so much in that time frame and the month promises to be busy also. All kinds of Christmas activities, end of the year things, parties, yada yada...

I was sick over thanksgiving, then Larisa got sick last week. We had a week off Schoolwork which the girls loved ;)

Let's see, Pat and I had our 16th Wedding Anniversary and it flopped badly but we are recovering, LOL. He surprised me a few days ago and told me had set up an account and saved money for me to order a casual dining set and china cabinet for the breakfast area. I was very surprised and ver excited. It took me a few days but I found the set we like and can afford (boy furniture can be expensive!!) and I'm ordering it today, it could be here for Christmas but I"m not counting on it. I'll post pictures when I can.

It's cold her in Ok and promises to be colder tonight, a balmy 17 degrees. I better get going since my alarm clock didn't go off and I got up 45 minutes late today.

bye for now :)
