Sugar Cookies & Second Shift Blues.

Aren’t they just gorgeous? LOL!   I feel like I need to declutter before Christmas hits us. The rooms in my house are so small.  We have a lot of big toys…like a kitchen center, the awesome wooden rocking boat, a school bus/slide thing, a rocking doggy.  The girls play with those things all the time.  There’s nothing I can really get rid of that won’t be sorely missed, you know?  If we had a basement we could just put some things down there,...

Meeting Santa & Early Presents from Grandma.

Yesterday morning the local bookstore had Santa Claus come during their weekly story time to read The Night Before Christmas.  Then the kids got to sit on his knee. Rosie was SO excited.

They had to tell Santa one...

This little guy is in the dog house.   I am so sick and tired of cleaning up his pee from various objects in my house! I don’t understand it.  He will get up and pee somewhere in the house at night then come back to bed. He pees in random places when we aren’t looking, on things like the kids’ toys or a basket of clean folded laundry. This morning he peed on the bottom drawer of my stove and it...

Superficial Christmas Cheer. 4

Superficial Christmas Cheer.

Around the corner from my house there’s this home that sets up over the top decorations every year at Christmas. By over the top I mean there isn’t anymore space left in their yard because the blow up thingies are so close together.  They even span over into their neighbor’s yard somewhat! It’s insane. Rosie and Ada think it’s just the most amazing thing they have ever seen.  Rosie begs to drive past it at night when it’s all lit up. This...
