It's that time of year again....

Christmas....What can I say besides I LOVE IT. I could deal better without the cold and snow but I will just have to deal with it. We finally got our tree up a few weeks ago and just got around to decorating it last night. The boys made me proud and did such a GREAT job. Friday Caleb came over and we decorated gingerbread houses and they look cute with the exception of one. Then Caleb, Nanny and Chris are coming over today to bake COOKIES!!!!! I am going to attempt Buckeyes for the 1st time ever. I know how much Marshall loves Peanut Butter and Chocolate, so I don't expect them to last long at all. I will post more pictures later of the Cookie baking party.

This December has already hit a sad note for us. Mom found out a week ago that they were laying off 249 people and she happened to be one. She is glad to be out of there after all the grief they give her and all the long hours she put in for crappy pay. She is still teaching at Colorado tech University and just picked up another class in February. I hope she finds a job soon or the teaching will be enough to cover her bills till she can find a full time job. Mom's girlfriend and her might open an Accounting business of there own, that would be nice. They might start the beginning of the year for Tax season. I will keep everyone updated as things progress.

The kids are doing great ans just started there 2 week winter break today. So it will be nice to have daddy home this year for Christmas with us. I can't go thru another one like last year. I better get the kitchen cleaned up so we have room to bake cookies today.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from my family to yours......
