I haven't been able to login for over a week!! thanks ivillage :( I am able to get on the boards on my phone now though so I'm sneaking in a quick minute... been super busy here! My sister is visiting from Berlin, so nice to have her here!! Is everyone else ready for Christmas? What are your plahome ant believe its in 7 days!!

It has been a bit hard for me to be in the Christmas spirit with a lot of stress here and of course with the school news, just so tragic :( I too have had a hard time getting it out of my mind. I heard that they didn't give the parents names of the deceased for hours after the shooting because they wanted to be completely accurate, but can you imagine that waiting?! I would have wanted to run into the school looking for my kids, how awful...

Yeah, the ivillage issues are really getting annoying.  Don't know what I am going to find from day to day! 

Tracie - cute haircut!  Post pics when you are done?  :)

At Thanksgiving it seemed like there was SOOO much time until Christmas.  Now it's almost here!?!?!  Thought I finished the shopping yesterday, only to remember that I need to have the kids pick out something each other.  Maybe will bring Henry to do that tonight while Addie is at dance (DH is bringing her).  We'll see!

Tracie, enjoy your hair cut, that style will look cute! I would love to go shorter but I don't think It looks as good on me! I did just get a few layers and go a light sandy blonde (it was darker blonde w/highlights before & I needed a change, I love it!) Kids are disappointed we only got a super light dusting of snow here, hoping for a white Christmas! Off to mail our Christmas cards today...

Yes- so annoying to have to sign in every time and then have to try multiple times before getting in. Too bad they had to make those changes and mess with a good thing:(

(((HUGS))) Jen, trying to get into a more cheerful spirit here too, it's hard.

I am looking forward to getting my hair cut tonight! I am going very short again, I just can't stand to spend any time messing with my hair. Here is the pic I am bringing to my stylist.

Also happy about going to visit my grandpa this weekend. Going to their small town always reminds me of when I was little and spending Christmas with them. We stay with my aunt & her husband- it is aways a party when my cousins & us get together:)

Then going to my brothers for Christmas Eve, so happy I am not hosting. Love to leave the mess and come home after. No plans Christmas Day- just the way I love it-family time!
