'If I have to see any more photos of those kids . . '
'I'm going to scream . . or shoot myself in the face.' Is that what you're saying? Well, sorry, but here they are. I took some pictures, hoping one would be good for the Christmas card. I did indeed choose one, although I forget which one. It was last minute and I was desperate. But with kids, you can't lose; they always look cute, right? I hope so.
Hmmm, it's been a while since I've posted. Got lost in the Thanksgiving Holiday - 4 1/2 days off in a row. WOW! Let's see, we brought the kids to see 'Yours, Mine, and Ours' last week. Really cute movie. I find myself crying at EVERY movie these days. Hormones? Aunt Flo? A little of both, I don't know, but it happened again.
What else? Thanksgiving with my family. We actually had spaghetti as part of our Thanksgiving feast! That was a first for me. But spaghetti is always a good idea, so I'm not knocking it.
Friday, I actually got up at 4 a.m. to go to the Black Friday sale at our local Wal-Mart (do I mention Wal-Mart often? I should because we go there way too often, being as it's the only place to shop here in this itty-bitty town). I'd officially lost what was left of my mind. Standing in the cold with hundreds of other crazy people, waiting to get our hands on cheap electronics. Sad you couldn't join me? My mom and I then continued the madness by taking Anna and John shopping at the mall while Mark and Emma went to cheer LSU on. Go Tigers! We managed to misplace John only once. A little panicking, until we realized that no one would take John M. for more than 2 minutes, without promptly returning him to his rightful owner. They would move on to a calmer little tot.
Yesterday, we took the girls ice skating again. I don't know if you'd call what I do 'skating'. It's more like a drunken Ozzy Osborne shuffle. I fell only once, but couldn't get up. At all. I mean, I was beached. I just kept thinking of that commercial from years ago 'I've fallen and I can't get up!'. I was saved by a bevy of teenage girls who took pity on me. Not embarrassing at all. No.
It's been a long 4 days, but a good time. I forgot to actually count my blessings on Thanksgiving, but I'll do it now. Silently. So y'all don't have to hear it. Again. I'm counting . . this may take a while.
