an idea.

I don't know if I'm going to have time for this, but an idea came to me.. WOW i know my very own idea LOL..
I think I'm going too go though my kids old Christmas pictures over the next few days and a make post of stuff i can remember about them at that Christmas.. Its a wonderful idea if i do say so myself :) ONLY problem is i wonder if I'll have the time to start from Princesses 1st Christmas and make it all the way to 2006 before Christmas gets here.
Things are crazy busy, but then what is new.
Tonight is Mr Man's Christmas program at school. I'm looking forward to this, his school only does a Christmas program for 1st and 2nd graders, then the 3rd and 4th graders do a spring program and the poor kindergardeners don't get a program. So I haven't been to a school Christmas program since Princess was in 2nd grade. My Only problem is Little Man is sick :( I don't know what to do with him. I could take him these things aren't very long. which i think i might end up doing, seeing how 1) no one who normally babysits for me wants to watch him because they are all planning on going to the program and 2) he Little Man doesn't want anyone but mommy right now anyways and is giving everyone around him who tries to care for him(like his daddy) screaming fits. ~sigh~ Sweet Pea was sick like this for one of princess school program and i ended up taking her with me then. OH the Joys of having children.

Christmas is coming way to fast for me. I only have a handful of my shopping done but i know what i want to get for people so that is a good thing. I do have my Christmas cards ready to go into the mail.. BUT for the same reason my shopping isn't done yet, the Christmas cards have been put on hold.. I have NO money until Friday when DH gets paid.. So I can't buy stamps and/or Christmas gifts. I'm hoping to get a bit more of the Christmas gifts out of the way this weekend, but i do know DH has alot of his check going towards bills this week also.. So I'm going to be one of those crazy crazy people running around the stores on Dec 22nd and Dec 23rd getting the Christmas shopping done and then end up really late on the 23rd and 24th wrapping gifts. It's times like these i wish I had a job and income coming in then i wouldn't have to live pay check to pay check.. But then i look at my babies, and i know they need there mom more then i need cash. So all is good.

I need to go clean my house, my parents and brother are coming over after the program tonight. I should at least pick the place up a bit. They are coming over because my oven door isn't closing all the way and DH and I can't seem to figure out what the problem is, so my dad is going to take a look at it for me. Hopefully it is fixable I don't even want to think where i would come up with the money for a new oven at right now around Christmas, but i can't really cook with it(well i can) with it like this. Due to the fact that it isn't closing and making a seal around the top part of the door it is making the knobs and the front part of the oven really hot when i cook and I'm just too afraid Little Man is going to burn himself. So this needs to be taken care of ASAP.

Well I'm off.. be looking for my post about Christmas past in a few days.
Later all.

What a nice picture of your kids! I too, will be running around this next week shopping. I had things put aside, but I didn't want to spend our money we have on hand.We are waiting to see if my dh will even be getting a holiday bonus this year. gulp...
Next year I am starting a Christmas Club in Jan. Even if I put $10-15 a week, I will have something saved when it is shopping time!
