Christmas Conundrums

Nov. 30, 2011

Mommy; So, since we don't have a chimney how do you think Santa gets in our house?

Christopher; Grandma will let us use hers! (He was speaking of his Grandma Cheryl)

Christopher's Quality Quotes-
 (I forgot to post this on his other site last week)

"You better watch out you better not cry, you better not pout,you better not pout, you better not cry(he repeated some)i'm telling you why, Santa Clause is coming to town!"

"Holly Jolly Christmas! Holly Jolly Christmas! Holly Jolly Christmas! The end!" (Imagine a 3 year old dancing and singing tis in the crisp, blowing wind!)

"Happy New Year Mommy and Daddy!
Merry Christmas!
Lady Bug Merry Christmas Mommy!
Merry Christmas everyone!"

"Shake it, shake it baby! Shake it shake it baby! Shake it shake it baby!" Singing and dancing along to Justin Bieber song after the Arthur Christmas movie!

Turkey Day! Happy Thanksgiving! (Grateful List)

Today I am thankful for our neighbors Lynn and Sandy Webb! We were out monotonously raking our lawn this morning, which was covered with leaves,  and Lynn came to our rescue with a rider mulcher/mower! He helped collect the leaves in less than an hour! Wowzers! That's fast! So guess what the Webb's got today?
Pumpkin Spice Cookies from me! With Confetti and Vanilla Frosting a few hours after they helped us!
I love how wonderfully kind and helpful they are to us!

I am thankful Robert and I went to Las Vegas last weekend. Here are some pictures;

                                                              Las Vegas Temple Last Friday

                                       I am so thankful for Temples and the joy and hope they bring to me.

                                                               Me in the front of the Temple

Listening to a great Italian Opera Gondola Guy sing, from the sidewalk!

                                                  I really like the marble trees and display of leaves!
                                                             We went on the Roller Coaster! It was fun!

                                                          First Cirqu show we've seen, awesome!
                                                                Us at the Cirque Show
                                                           At Treasure Island Hotel Theater
                                            There is such a place, it's not just a Bond Movie, or book!
                    I don't like Coke but I love the Style of the lamp on the left! Too bad it's $1,200!
                                                          Walking on the Strip

                                                            Arch De Triumph by the Paris Hotel
               Bellagio Water Fountains! ;) Italian Opera Andrea Boccelli & Sarah Brightman LOVE!

                                                           We rode the N.Y. Roller Coaster!
                                                     That is one, stylin' and expensive jacket!


                                                This is what replaced Fao Schwartz kids store!
             Way too modern for me, I felt like I was on a different planet! Why would I buy something there!?
               I really miss the kids store! I was so thankful for it while it was there though!

                    Happy Turkey day everyone! I peeled, boiled and mashed 18 potatoes today! And made Pumpkin Spice Cookies. I may make a Pumpkin Pie or Pumpkin Cobbler next! Yummy!
But, first I will have hot chocolate! I am thankful my son is napping and that my husband fixed our sink pipes which got clogged today! I am grateful for; my heater, blankets, modern medicine, good healthy, happiness, love, life-long learning and the ability to grow and change. I am thankful for school, and making new friends. I'm thankful for all my loyal, trustworthy and sweet, true friends and family!

Happy Thanksgiving!
