Good Morning, Monday December 4

  1. to Monday! Loved the thread on Sunday, just finished it as I couldn't sleep, just tossed and turned. Great photos!

    Yes is the answer to jnette's question . . . we did "DRAG" in our Christmas tree. It is sitting in the living room in a big box! We spent the afternoon looking in store after store for "fake" trees and found one in Sears with the large old fashioned lights and another one with just white lights and pinecones and then one very beautiful huge full tree at Lowe's but it had no lights - sorta defeats the purpose of buying a fake tree (which is to bypass the headache of placing lights). So we narrowed it down and let the 5 year old pick, the one with the old fashioned lights.

    Our older boys will be dismayed - but they are adults and have moved and don't live here anymore to help with the lights so they don't get a vote. :spin:

    I'll leave the coffee making for others - I am going to try to get back to bed. Bought a book at Barnes and Noble about Doctors without Borders . . . . itching to do some medical mission work again.

    More photos everyone!

    Morning!

    Steph, your book sounds good. I want to do mission work after I graduate. I really would love to go to Africa and help with HIV/AIDS patients.

    I think I'll turn in soon. Downloading a song from itunes and then I'm off to bed. Mondays are always for sleeping in.

    The Colts lost Poor Peyton is so hard on himself.

    Had my nieces b-day party last night. Kennedy was in her fake kiddie high heels that I bought them, standing in front of the tree singing "happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me" at the top of her lungs. I'll post some pics after I get sleep. Emma spent most of the night running from Kennedy in her high heels screaming "don't bite, don't bite". Kennedy was chasing her with teeth bared.

    Have a great day!

    Good morning. I'm discumbobulated because I'm up to go to work after just finishing a night shift yesterday morning. Yes I love myself when I pick up shifts like that.

    So coffee is brewing. I'm dreading the thought of going out to the cold outside.

    Good morning all!!! Couldn't sleep any longer so here I am. I work today 3-11.
    Mary Ann--that missing table cloth would make me nuts. :spin:

    It's snowing!!! Big wet flakes, not supposed to do anything other than stick to grassy surfaces but it's always nice to see the first fakes coming down.
    When it gets light out, I'll work on putting the ornaments on the tree. He's really a big one!

    BBL!!!

    Suzy--this missing tablecloth issue IS making me INSANE!! I can't believe it's lost!! I remember EXACTLY when we used it last!! I have the napkins--I even remember what we ate the last time it was used!!
    CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS!!

    Even if I go out & buy a new one, it will still make me crazy!!
    DH says " Could we have accidentally thrown it out?"
    I really, firmly believe that that is NOT the case!!

    By the way, It's 9 degrees here now!!! OUCH!!
    hate to go out into this!!

    OH WELL,
    See you all later--after nails
