My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

Regaining My Holiday Street Cred

It's long been known, at least to my peeps around here, that I am a cross between Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch at holiday time. It's not that I don't like Christmas. I really DO like Christmas. In fact, I have no clue as to why I have such a hard time enjoying the season.

All that aside, I am making a point of getting my act together for the Christmas Season. I will have a tree up by December 24th. I might even buy a new tree to replace the old, tiny, wimpy "Charlie Brown" style tree I've had for the past 10 years. I bought new coordinating (sort of) wrapping paper yesterday, along with a few new ornaments, gift tags, and tape to wrap with. Nope, I will not be using blue painter's tape this year on the gifts. Most of Ava's gifts are in my bedroom waiting for me to wrap them (or waiting on Santa to handle them). Faith is getting a W.ii complements of my parents, but it will be going under our tree. That pretty much covers HER x-mas too!

The one big ticket item we are debating on is a ride on train for Ava. It's battery operated, but it is large enough for her to ride on and it comes with 15' of track (or something like that). We have found it (shipped) for less than $200, but I can't decide if I want to give up even more floor space for something like this. To be honest, I really wonder if it isn't for Ava so much as it is for Jef. Hummm... I should buy him a conductor's hat and gear just to be on the safe side!

And speaking of Jef- I'd love to share what I'm plotting for that sweet man of mine, but he does read the blog and that would be a spoiler for sure. Ok, so he has made the point we aren't getting each other anything, but that really means we are.

So, hummy- sweetie- pookie pie: Come and get my list, okie dokie?

Anyone looking for nice wedding bands?

Ah the train sounds fun.... and I do love the Wii. I don't have one, but my cousins do and I had a blast playing it.

I will send Jef my list too! :)

Oh man, the train sounds like tons of fun! Jef sounds like Matt...he wants to get Doran a battery-operated 4-wheeler, but the boy can't even walk yet! I say go for it. And I'm impressed at coordinating wrapping paper. I don't think I've ever done such a thing! =)

K might not make fun of you if you have a nicer tree. I said MIGHT NOT! Faith is so lucky..will your Dad adopt me?

I love to decorate but I never know what to get for others for gifts. I'm still stuck and haven't started shopping yet.

That train sounds awesome! I can see where Jef...I mean Ava...would want it.

Deena said...

Bah Humbug!
I am in need of some Christmas spirit! Can you pass some along to me? Do you have any to spare?

The train sounds awesome. What is the weight load on that thing? (Maybe Big J is planning on taking over the conductor's seat????)

Hahahhahah well that was subtle. I might have to steel that little trick myself.
