WHA?? Christmas is just around that corner

Don't be scared! but Christmas is only a week away.......1 2 3 4 5 6 7 days away! Oh geez. So I thought I was closer to being done but let me tell you...I have to buy my parents a gift, my brother and his girlfriend a gift and I still have get a couple more things for Luke! Okay so that is the shopping but then I have the wrapping...which I do not really enjoy too much....oh and then wait did someone just say "um Ariel your Christmas tree is still not up" Wha!?? See busy weekend for me!

Luke said something so funny to me the other day and I just need to share.

Luke: Ariel don't you think that Santa has to use people's bathrooms sometimes.

ME: Um I guess so, I have never really thought about it.

L: Well 'cause I was just thinking that he eats like a million cookies and drinks a lot of milk so how could he not ever have to go the bathroom on his trip.

M: Well that is a very good point.

So I think when I have him put out cookies and milk (and carrots for the reindeer) for Santa maybe I should have him write a note telling him he can use out bathroom if he needs to. Kids are so funny.

Merry Christmas to you all!!

Favorite candy of the season!

I just wanted to say how much I absolutely love this delicious little kisses! They are seriously so melt in your mouth, wonderful, yummy little things. They make me smile every time I pop one in my mouth. Please try them! So good!


So things are looking up just a bit.....They found Shane's van! Yay! The people took about $1500 dollars worth of tools that they had to go and replace last night. That is a lot better than what we thought they were going to have to pay. Now if everthing else could go good the rest of this year that would be wonderful. I am sorry about the downer post yesterday I will try to be more positive from now on. :)

When are things going to start looking up?

I feel as if there is something that is holding me back from being fully happy lately. I have wonderful kids, an amazing husband, a good job, and great parents and brother so why do the bad things that happen over take all that happiness. Blah! I really just want to crawl in a hole until this year is over!! Besides the birth of my wonderful daughter this year has been a royal pain in my rear!!

This morning Shane's work van was stolen from our house and it is so horrible! Why do people have to suck so much? There was so much money worth of tools in that van and now Shane has nothing to drive. Really? Could things possibly get any worse.

I am not a bad person so I ask you world what did I do to deserve all the misfortunes in my life lately? I am not much of a complainer but I just have to let it all out before I explode! Please please let something good happen before I give up on all hope!
