Thanks for ...

Thank goodness for Teletubbies. They are the GREATEST!! Jared and Kamryn have one tubby DVD and they watch it every day. It's a great diversion for them and gives me a few minutes to do something. They've watched it longer today than ever before. Usually they watch it for about 5 minutes and then start playing. Today they've watched most of it. It's fun to watch them watch it. They get so excited about it.

I've been spending quite a bit of time on lately - trying to get something for Justin. This morning there was an ad for a sweepstakes at ebay express - Wish for It Sweepstakes. You create a wish list and then if you win the grand prize you get $5000 to buy what is on your wish list. Man that was fun shopping.

A great party

Last weekend we had our annual group Christmas party. I meant to write it about before now but I just barely got the pictures loaded onto the computer from the camera.
I think we all had a great time and it was so nice to enjoy a wonderful dinner together. I loved visiting with everyone and it was fun to see what gifts everyone received. I am so grateful for such great friends.

Can't sleep

I just hate it when I wake up some time during the night and can't get back to sleep. Tonight is one of those nights. This is the second night this week that this has happened.
After reading everyone else's latest entries, I guess I'll catch up on mine.
Life is so crazy busy sometimes and it has been around here.
On Monday, Carolyn (Paul's mom) fell in the morning and broke her femur on the same leg where she'd had a 2nd hip replacement in Feb. It was a bad break and she was in surgery for several hours on Wed morning. She will be in the hospital for several days and then to a care center for many days and then home with a very long recovery ahead of her. Paul's dad is just recovering from a heart attack and so we are just as worried about him as we are her.
Last Saturday I took Brooke, Jared and Kamryn to the festival of trees. My niece, Kierra, was performing with her dance group. She did a great job as did the rest of the dancers. Jared and Kamryn loved looking at the trees, especially ones with stuffed animals, dolls and toys. I was reminded why we don't go to that event on a Saturday.
I'm so behind this season. I usually have my Christmas card out by now and I'm nowhere near getting it out.
Shopping is going okay. I'm struggling with ideas for all of my children this year. They really don't need anything.
My exercise buddy has been out of town for several days and I'm really noticing the effects of not exercising in over a week. Hopefully we'll get back to it Friday morning.
