It's been so long since I updated this thing, I forgot my password.

My bad. I don't know if it's just that I've been busy. Or just lazy. Or some of both.

In the meantime, my oldest child is now certifiably a teenager, having turned 13 on November 22nd. She and her friend rang in their teen-ness with a dance. It sure wasn't like I remembered from junior high. We used to stand together in little girl and boy-only packs and start to dance an hour or two into the thing. These kids got out and danced from minute one and never stopped. I kept trying to sneak peeks at who my girl was dancing with without looking like I was doing so. I never did make out who was who. They all look the same in the dark. Anna had a great time though and I think it's something she'll always remember, which is what I'd hoped it would be.

Emma's having a birthday get-together tomorrow night at the Festival of Lights Xmas event here. It's going to be freezing cold, but I guess that goes with the theme, huh? Sucks for me though.

My Christmas shopping is almost done, and I'm going to keep how much money I spent on the down-low. Just doing my part to stimulate the economy down here, right?

Our tree is up, Xmas decorations in the yard and cards on the way. I think I'm actually ahead a little this year. Maybe after Emma's party, I can sit back and relax some.

This has been one boring post, but hey, at least I got back on the wagon.

It was not boring at all!

You have a TEENAGER??? Gosh, you're old! ;)

Once again, I'd really like to know what you consider "freezing cold" ...because we're going to a festival of lights parade tomorrow evening also and the predicted temperature here for tomorrow is TWENTY degrees.

...anything above 35 degrees is NOT freezing cold! :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO EMMA (AND ANNA)!!!! I hope Emma has a blast at her get-together!

Don't worry, I have been the same way with my blog.

That picture of your boy is adorable!

I'm impressed with your holiday "got it togetherness." My Christmas cards still have not arrived and I'm starting to freak out.

Happy birthday to your girls!

p.s. I remember dances the SAME way! ;)

If my password wasn't auto-saved, I'd have forgotten it by now, too.

A teenager, eh? YIKES.
