Hi ladies!

I needed to take a little social media break to get my head together?

I seemed to have some run ins in various places---email, FB, and the board stuff and I noticed that the common factor in all of it was ME!!!?

So, I took a step back and concentrated on being nice and taking in the season without lots of drama, name calling, and ickiness?

I think it helped me to get myself together again?

Christol, I am so amazed at the hockey ref situation! That is just totally uncalled for!?

Missi, love all of the photos you took of the kids for Christmas. Can't wait to see the final product?

Marie, how was Arionna's birthday?

Lauri, got your card and loved the pictures of you guys?

Carmen, think of you often and was so glad to see you posting on the blog again?

Helen, the latest pictures of Eloise we so pretty. She is a stunning young lady?

Kimberly, did you do anything special for your birthday?

Kelley, I am thrilled to hear that woman is leaving. What a nice Christmas gift for you!!?

Things are going well here?

I have scaled back with the Christmas season and really choosing to do things that are happy and fulfilling for our family?

We went with another mom and daughter to see The Nutcracker yesterday afternoon?

The girls and I all enjoyed it?

Hope everyone is doing well and having a happy December?

Christol, I saw that you were able to post and was so glad it worked or you?

We discussed the ballet before we went and I gave them a mini school lesson about it?

It was a frequent field trip when I was teaching. So I knew what they needed to know to make it enjoyable?

They both had a good time. The theater was perfectly suited for a ballet performance?

It was very chilly here on my morning walk. Frost on the ground and you could feel the cold hanging in the air?

Temps are headed to the low 60s later in the week?

DID YOU KNOW.........????

....at least it's supposed to be cold there guys!!

....it's summer here & the top temp this week is around 70 & it's raining!!!!

....we're getting very worried that it's going to be a cold wet Christmas!!

.... I have the heater on!!

....speaking of the Nutcracker, if any of you in Canada are going to see it & it's the Alberta Ballet then one of the ballerinas (not sure who she's playing) is called Tori Page & she is from Eloise's dance school!!!!

....Karol, I also was able to comment on your blog, I can't always do that either!!

....I'm loving everyone's blogs, I check for updates nearly every day!!!

....so far I have received Christol's Christmas card, looking forward to the rest!! I'm even going to try & get one out this year, but don't hold your breath!!!!!!

....not much going on around here, usual crap, not enough work so not enough money!! Still waiting on child support!!!

....jerk is actually licking the kids up after lunch on Christmas day & having them for a couple of days while they are staying at fatnats parents

....I'm working Christmas day, but only 2 hours & the pay is double time & a half! So it's worth it!!!

....Speaking of, gotta go get ready for work today

.... Talk to you soon

I'm in the exact same boat as you with Claire. Clothes are basically out since she wears a uniform all week and has a closet full. She's still an Aero or Abercrombie girl though. I'm thinking maybe an IPOD dock/alarm clock from Max?? I'm getting her contacts from me but that's not really fun because it will be a sheet of paper telling her. She asked and is receiving Uggs from Santa. Craig let her design her own Reezig Flex tennis shoes. She asked for and is receiving a crayon maker, a lava lamp and a Mickey Mouse charm bracelet watch from the other family. But, I am just at a loss as to what to put in her stocking because she already has so much crap. I should say she'd like just about anything BUT since I don't buy much, I want it to be a "love". Keep me posted as to what you get.
