My little elfs.....

Here's some shots of my little elf's and one little Santa. He he he.... They all had their Christmas parties yesterday and so we all had to have hats. They were awful cute, I must say. They all had a good time and are looking forward to their break. And of course, the all important day! I also added a shot of my early Christmas present. Well, it was both William and mine. We've been looking and wanting a dinning room table, a rather large one I might add, and we finally decided on one. So this is our Christmas, Anniversary and Birthdays for the year. I love it. It seats ten. We have more matching chairs coming later, so we had to improvise but it works. I love it. It's exactly what I wanted. If I don't get a chance to get back on here, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. I love you all! Merry Christmas!

Missing out...

Here's a picture of Landon with an early Christmas present. He has thoroughly enjoyed it too, as you can see. My mom sent if for him and I just didn't want to figure out how to wrap it so he got it early. It's not like he isn't getting plenty more. Anyways, the main reason for this blog is to show you the other pictures. This is what he does when the big kids are in the back yard playing. He can't stand it. He's quite sure he's missing out on something. Nothing makes him happier than if they come get him and take him out too. But if they don't he just stands there in the window calling for them. It's pretty darn cute I must say. He just doesn't want to miss out on any of the fun...

Couple More...

Here's a few shots that we did of us just being normal. We did end up getting the top one blown up in black and white coloring and putting it up. It was just fun and not so formal. A whole lot more like we really are. They were just fun! :)

Christmas Pictures

Every couple of years we have a Family Portrait done. So here it is. We had some really great ones done this time. We really enjoyed having them done. They did an awesome job getting everyone to look, which is no easy task for a family of seven. That poor lady earned her money that night. He he he... no really everyone did great and we all enjoyed it. Which was a first, I might add. I will post a few more too. Enjoy!

Look Who's Walkin....

"Here I come... Momma." Look here, little stink has decided to try and walk. He can cruise across a room pretty well. It's by no means perfect but he's workin awful hard at it and as you can see he's quite pleased with himself. Of course, when he gets somewhat close he lunges for ya. But he's on the move. Can you believe we're approaching his first birthday so quickly. He was 10 months old on November 23rd. He's growing up so fast. He is such a joy! :) He wears me out but that's okay, I don't mind so much. Won't be long now...

Letter to Santa....

Dear Santa,

I've been a good mom all year. I've fed, cleaned and cuddled my children on demand, visited their doctor's office more than my doctor, sold sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground. I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son's red crayon, on the back of a receipt in the laundry room between cycles, and who knows when I'll find anymore free time in the next 18 years.

Here are my Christmas wishes:

I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache (in any color, except purple, which I already have) and arms that don't hurt or flap in the breeze; but are strong enough to pull my screaming child out of the candy aisle in the grocery store.

I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy.

If you're hauling big ticket items this year I'd like fingerprint resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking animals; and a refrigerator with a secret compartment behind the crisper where I can hide to talk on the phone.

On the practical side, I could use a talking doll that says, "Yes, Mommy" to boost my parental confidence, along with five kids who don't fight and three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without the use of power tools.

I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting "Don't eat in the living room" and "Take your hands off your brother," because my voice seems to be just out of my children's hearing range and can only be heard by the dog.

If it's too late to find any of these products, I'd settle for enough time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the luxury of eating food, warmer than room temperature without it being served in a Styrofoam container.

If you don't mind, I could also use a few Christmas miracles to brighten the holiday season. Would it be too much trouble to declare ketchup a vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely. It would be helpful if you could coerce my children to help around the house without demanding payment as if they were the bosses of an organized crime family.

Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back. Have a safe trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the door and come in and dry off so you don't catch cold.

Help yourself to cookies on the table but don't eat too many or leave crumbs on the carpet.

Yours Always,

P.S. One more can cancel all my requests if you can keep my children young enough to believe in Santa.

Dallas Cowboy...

In honor of the Dallas Cowboys, here is our little Dallas Cowboy. He wore this out Friday and you wouldn't believe how many comments we got. Go Cowboys!!!! Yeah, like I care.... But he is pretty cute.
