Cancel The Award

Yep....I felt like I should cancel my award..pass it on

I cleaned up Christmas....

Now on the bedrooms...

then maybe the Crap Closet

House looks empty...clean..

Feels GREAT!

I get the award

I get the award for still having my tree up! I am thinking of decorating it for Valentines day...then Easter ...St. Patrick's get the idea....

So much work. I really want to see my kitchen table sometime soon. It has been covered with decorations for over 2 weeks. There are 2 UN-opened presents under the tree , I need to deliver.

I am hurting. Took a good fall ( my leg just gives out) and now I can barely walk without wincing. I am just not feeling the Christmas clean up. I am not feeling like cleaning and purging. Maybe this week will be the week!?!

We went to dinner this past weekend as an entire family. I have to say it has never been just the five of us. It went good. Carter still wants to climb the booth and under the table. We went to a very kid friendly restaurant. The have a train that circles the restaurant. SO every 5 minutes he had something to capture his attention. We had fun ( then we got the bill) Wholly Molly guacamole!! Taking your whole family out to eat can put a dent in your budget. Next time we are thinking of taking them bowling. I bet it is cheaper!

On the lighter side..the lights outside have been taken down...I pulled the tree away from the it looks like we have no tree...HA! I am sure my neighbors are wondering when I will get out of the Christmas Tree spirit.

Carter asked me is "Holy Cow" is a bad word..I told him no.....

He then looked at me and asked.....

Well, Is "Holy Sh*t" A bad word?

urghhhh...Carter john I love you....

Re-Cap 2011

2012 Wow! Here is to a New Year and to maybe a new me??

2011 Recap

* Matthew is taller then me...his pants are high waters even though we just bought them at the beginning of the school year. He played football for the High School...Yes, my baby is in High School!
He went to his first formal dance, Halloween party, New Years Eve party and many more firsts for him. He passed driver's Ed and all of his classes 3 B's and One A! He volunteers each week at Church and every other month he does Digital media at Church. The have even contacted him about running soundboard. I am so proud of him.

*Olivia stared kindergarten...not much has changed with the school schedule..other then they are not fighting as much. Still screaming. No seriously, she is growing up way to fast! She has been taking art classes and is doing AMAZING!
She is very social. She loves having friends over everyday. She wakes up asking who will be home and who is coming over. She is learning to read and is catching on very quickly. Her new thing is to a big girl and shower by herself ( there goes the water bill and no hot water) and pick out outfits, along with brushing her own hair.
She is loves to doddle on everything , keeping it to paper...that's a good thing.

* Carter John....always happy. Not to sure of preschool. I have been talked to about him listening and paying attention. I am sure he will be kicked out soon. He will be turning 4 soon! He is a cuddle bug and crawls into my bed with his head on mine. He calls Jeremy "Dada" I think it is cute. He asks everyday if Dada went to work and when I say yes he gets so upset but he continues to ask hoping I say no.
He has mastered the Wii and is now on to the XBOX...he is just like Matthew in so many ways. He has wanted to move out about 10 times this year. His way of manipulation on getting his way.

* Jeremy is still employed! Whoop-Whoop! Small things that can make a family feel at peace.
He is still doing his Watch & Clock repair on the side.
He has carpel tunnel and had surgery a few months back on hand one...and the 2nd surgery will be Feb. 1st. He is such a blessing to me.

* And then there is ME! I am looking forward to a New Year...My only goal would be that I learn to accept...Accept me for who I am and not who I think I should be.

**** Happy New Year****
