Monday Catch Up

Well ,I have been a bit busy as I am sure most of you are this time of year. So to get started, on Saturday night we took our girls to see Christmas in the park. we have never been and we thought it would be fun. It was, But it was also crowded! here are some pictures...






The park is filled with trees decorated by different community groups. here were lots of creative trees. here is my favorite, it was done by a catholic church, The top says "Sacrificed for me" instead of Starbucks! Clever!






*********************************************************

Also I am Done with all 4 books in the twilight series! Wow, they were very good. I do admit the 1st one is my favorite. I enjoyed them all and look forward to the rest of the movies, although I don't know how they will do it, they will need a much bigger budget for special effects for sure!

*********************************************************

Then, I have one daughter getting over strep throat and now the other one is sick, so off to the DR. we go in about an hour to check and make sure she didn't get strep, but probably does!

*********************************************************

Christmas day we will be home, I am hoping my brother comes from LA to visit, then heads over to our other brother's house with us for the weekend. Where we will see our mom and yet another brother & their families. ( I have 3 older brothers) We haven't all been together in years!

*********************************************************

Well we are letting cable go, Yikes. they have raised the price so much and we don't watch it as much as we used to, so we decided to just not have it any more. I will miss The Colbert report and NASCAR! ( Ali I will be relying on you starting in Feb.) But for the most part, I was finding it more of a distraction in my life. Of course that will leave more time for my other distraction, my computer!

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!

I'm sorry you guys are dealing with Strep this week! I hope the girls feel better by Christmas. How nice to be home -- we'll be up at my parents and it's kind of not the same. We plan to have a little celebration, just the four of us, when we get home. :)

Good for you for letting the cable go! We went without for a few years. I could so do without cable (hubby likes it for certain shows) after having a DVR I don't want to do without that! I just love being able to record what I do watch!

I'm glad you were able to see Christmas in the park. We saw it during the day, I bet it looks great all lit up at night. Hope everyone is starting to feel better soon, so everyone can enjoy the holidays!

I saw a Christmas tree completely made from 7-up cans. It was amazing and boy did it sparkle when it was lit up.
