It’s that time of year — time for the annual Christmas card photo.  This is NOT the one you’ll be seeing on our Christmas card this year.  But letting them goof around for a bit first got them relaxed and produced a cute photo that looks great on our card.  Thanks Sharon at Simply Sassy Paper for turning my cards around so quickly!


He’s Making A List…

On Friday, November 20th, we attended a charity event benefitting the local Meals on Wheels program.  It was a Christmas-themed, family event.  The boys got to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.  When I asked Peter that morning what he would ask Santa for, he said he hadn’t thought much about it.  Apparently, he gave it quite a bit of thought because he gave Santa an earful!

On a chilly night, Jacob climbed into bed and pulled his covers up to his chin.  I thought he looked so cute with just his small head poking out.

Happy Birthday Jacob!

Jacob turned 6 on November 18th.  I can’t believe my baby has turned into such a big boy!  We celebrated with dinner at Texas Land and Cattle.  After we ate, we took a family photo by the fireplace at the restaurant.

Painting With A Twist

I attended a surprise 40th birthday party for a friend at a new place called Painting with a Twist.  The concept is that you get a group of friends together, bring your own wine and snacks, and participate in a 2 hour painting class led by an art instructor.  Everyone paints the same painting.  It was great fun even though I’m not artistic at all. 

Here I am with my two best friends, Shannon and Stephanie.   As soon as I looked at this picture, it reminded me of another picture of us standing in the same order.  It was from my “last supper” before I started the weight management program.

A cold front blew in and we’re experiencing our first taste of overnight low temperatures in the 40s.  At last, the heater is on and the flannel pj’s are too.

It’s A Blanket…

…with sleeves!  I am perpetually cold.  Hubby saw this at Target and picked it up for me, partially as a joke but also because he knew I’d probably use it.  The children, who are experts at all things “As Seen on TV” kept telling me I needed one of these.  When I asked why, they looked at each other as if to say, “How could she not know this?”  Then they said in unison, “Because it’s a blanket…WITH SLEEVES!”

Hubby thinks Snuggie should use this photo in an ad.

I hate to admit it, but the thing is warm and the sleeves are useful.  I’m often so cold that I don’t want to poke my hand or arm out from underneath a warm blankie in order to touch/grab/hold/do something, and the sleeves solve that dilemma easily.
