Suffering from withdrawal here with the lack of time I've had for blog reading and this damned dial-up doesn't help matters cause it's as pokey as a snail race.
Jerri and the girls have been visiting again and today Krysten spent the afternoon too. There's been some crafting going on again around here and I betcha we've got some of the classiest homemade clay ornaments in the country (some of the most colorful too!)
The Chick's been watching too much television. Jerri took her to have Christmas photos taken yesterday and Santa was supposed to be there. When they pulled up to the place Alexis asked her if "this was the North Pole?" Jerri told her it was and Alexis said, "That must be a fake Santa then cause this AIN'T the North Pole!." There's just no foolin some kids.
Trish called yesterday and her girls are getting the Christmas spirit right on schedule. She said it's been hard shopping for her girls this year because they have so many toys already. (Nanaw already knew this but they don't listen much to me.) They'll be here some time over the Christmas holidays so maybe they'll get something that we adults like to play with too.
James always goes shopping and buys the kiddies something a little extra at Christmas and he was asking Jami's girls what they wanted this year. Meri Kate told him she wanted a baby doll with a bottle, Krysten told him she wanted Dr. Suess books, and Abby, bless her little pea-pickin heart, told him she wants a HORSE. I'm not sure how he's going to get around that request. This is the same tiny tot who told him one year that she wanted a camo blanket for her birthday.
I found a few more Christmas thingies that that gave me a chuckle so I thought I'd share them here since I'm so danged brain dead that words fail me. (ha!)
