Cole is happy with his Red Ryder BB gun?

He shouldn't shoot his eye out because he got the safety goggles to go with it?:smileywink:

Noah likes his knife and the supplies Frank got him to try to make his own knives?

Frank surprised me with a laptop?

He got it at work on cyber Monday, with his company discount.

I don't think I had a miss this year?
The kids really liked everything they got?
The books with the cash bookmark were a hit with the nieces and nephews?
Claire ended up getting enough cash added to what she had saved to get a Kindle Fire as well?
Busy week with the horrid hockey tournament?
Is it wrong that I hope we lose the first game tomorrow morning at 8?
Instead of buying him the tournament t-shirt, I bought him one that says, "I'm so good, YOUR Mom cheers for me", lol? It's completely a "Max" shirt;)
Justen gave me a present? NEW tires??
I'm not sure yet if it's 2 or 4? He paid and I have to go tomorrow to have them put on?
I started to protest because of course I didn't buy him anything and, well....it's a generous gift? And, I have only talked to him a couple of times the past months but he said, "I'm not taking no for an answer"?
He came to Max's game last night and tonight?
No idea what that means, nor am I spending any energy thinking about it?
It is what it is right now...free tires;) For which I am extremely appreciative of because I needed them?
Our weather has been very nice? 50s!! No snow obviously, very weird but hopefully will make for a shorter feeling winter when subzero January hits?
Better get to bed..6:30 comes early..ISH!
Can't wait to come here tomorrow and hear all about your Christmas?

Christol, woo-hoo on the tires?

I just don't understand that man?

It is so obvious to me how much he loves you so why can't he commit already?

I know you don't know either, just had to say it?

Missi, I like the backpack for the camera gear?

I always like having the photos, but hate lugging all the

Hello, everyone! I am enjoying my last couple of days of Winter Break before I have to go back to teaching on Tuesday. The girls go back to school on Wednesday.

We had a good Christmas, thanks to lots of help from family.

DYK...

...Christol, I LOVED your most recent blog post?

...I've always found when I deal with my kids the way you dealt with Max, the result is almost always, 100% good?

...I don't always remember it...it's not a natural response, on my part, when they're acting like pukes, but man...what a good lesson for all of us as we enter the tumultuous teen years with our May babes?!?

...and I posted it on your blog, and I know I've said it here before, but I think it's worth repeating?

...An older mom, with older kids, from our church once said, "People stop hugging their kids when they become teens.
