Took the kids shopping today. BOTH of the MALL!

I need prozac. Lol.. danny used his gift cards to buy 2 new bone books, and riles got 2 new spongebob books. Danny also used his other gift card to get a new transformer game. We then went to target and danny got a star wars toy, and riles got a playmobil construction/fireman toy kit. These toys are AWESOME. She wants the hospital one, and i think i am going to get it for her for her birthday. It would be a great present, because you can keep adding stuff to make it a city type thing. Here is the hospital, and all the stuff on the box is included in the kit.

if you have kiddos who like legos, I am betting they will like these too.
Chris and I are going to town tonight for an adult beverage (me) (s) him. :)
Happy New Year!

Merry and Bright
I hope you had yourself a merry little Christmas. We did. The kiddos raked in goodies and gift cards, and I had a good time visiting with family. I am planning on scrapping sometime this weekend (maybe saturday..i just might sign up for archivers 12 hour crop if it is open). I have some pics to print at Sams, and want to hit some of the after christmas sales for a new tree.
Here are some pics of the kiddos and chris. As usual, I am not in any of them. bummer.
Riles and her garbage truck

She loves christmas (just like gma pat). Merry Christmas to all.

It' s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Thank goodness! I am just ready for the stress to be over. We will read about Christ's birth tonight before we read Twas the night before Christmas, open one prezzie (jammies) and then wait for the big guy to show. Here are some pics of Riles in front of the tree. Danny was at Grandma's so he will get his taken today when he comes home. Riles, Grandma Pat, and I made sugar cookies yesterday. I will have pics to post later. Danny didn't want to help this year, he said it was to young for him to do so. Hmmph. Well.. I wonder if it is too young for him to eat them too? lol
he is getting so big.
(bought these at nobbies danny and riles love them.)

i Am BoReD!
Can't decide if I should reorganize my scrapbook table or not. I have so much stuff piled on top of it, and I don't know if that is something I want to tackle or not. If i clean it off, I could put my laptop in there along with my expression, and scrap at home if I would ever get a moments peace. I am currently fighting with riles about no means no. I am sooo not enjoying the riles lately. I don't know what is happening to her. She argues about EVERYTHING. I am so tired of the fight that today she actually got a swat on her hiney. I am just tired of the continual battle, and yes, I know it only gets worse. Part of me wonders if it is because she can't get outside and run. I know she has a mind of her own, and yes, she does act just like me.
I think she needs a dose of Sherry for a couple days (daycare). Maybe that will help her. :)
have a good day

Missing him...
We all got together over at deanne's yesterday to meet our cousin Mark's daughter Chris. Mark and his wife jeannie were very supportive when dad died. We don't get together often, but we always have a good time when we do. I have been playing with my machine chris bought me (ok..i put it in the cart and told him it was my xmas and bday present). It is similar to my little cricut only it cuts stuff BIGGER! It will work great for my classroom. Anyway, started this last night, and after I was done feeling like death warmed over, (and sleeping until 11:30 this am), I finished this.
The journaling says:
It has been 5 years since I talked to you. Five years since I hugged you. I took for granted I would have you for one more day. What hurts the most about losing you? The family history, I will never know, the relationship you had with Danny and getting to know the Riles (I know you would have loved her. She is fiesty). Mom missing you. She never comes out and says so, but she misses you. The love you had for your family. All of us. No matter what was happening, and the phone calls to wish me happy birthday. This is
What hurts the most. (title).

I think i need something under the picture, but am undecided on what to put there. the little black stickers say Love, other things may change us, but we start and end with family, and the greatest of these is love.
happy day

Got my last paycheck from my former teaching job today. Um. yeah. They only paid me for a week. The second week I took vacation time (what i had left). They didn't pay me for it. They said my resignation date was the 21st. Um. No. Anyway, they will still pay me for those last days of vacation, but it won't be until the next paydate AFTER my last check. They will pay me for them, so why not when I took them? Geesh. This is a company who takes care of the community (or suppose to). It has a branch in my hometown, and provides a good service. I won't mention names here because that would be petty, and I will be more professional than they were. Good thing OPS will pay me on the 15th. Chris is taking me out for my bday tomorrow. I can't decide between Ruby Tuesdays or Applebees. I really want steak, AND texas probably Ruby's. Love me some texas straws (like the blooming onion at Outback, only in petals).

School went.....
well today. The kids had a really good day. It will take a week or so to get into a new routine, but it will get easier.
