Happy Bleeping New Year

Here I am sitting on the couch in my freezing lonely basement all by myself watching a Dick Clark that I can hardly understand and Ryan Secrest. The good news is I do have the whole fam damily under the same roof. And everyone is quietly sleeping. It stinks to get old. I don't have anyone to say it to, so HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
Here is to a fabulous 2009!!!

Muah! Love you all!!

Seeing Santa

Well we really wanted to go and see Santa. We went to the Mall on the 23rd and surprisingly the line wasn't too bad....BUT the lady taking the pictures was stupid. It really took her like 20 plus minutes per kid...and more if you were buying stuff. She really needed a helper. Nonetheless my kids were super excited to see him. Xan about bounced on to his lap and told him he wanted a bike and Kynlee wouldn't get close to him...although she really liked to look at him. I ended up in the photo. I really am not too happy about it but hey, the kids look good!

Cheap entertainment

My kids have hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of toys. You would think that they would spend hours on end playing in their custom bedrooms with all of their "awesome" toys. Nope. Tonight it was the sock basket( Yep all the socks are now on my bedroom floor) or my closet. I guess if they are having fun I shouldn't complain but it is Christmas time and I am sure they are going to come home with a car load of brand new fabulous toys that may just go unplayed with. Maybe Santa should save some time, money, and effort and just bring my kids a couple multi-packs of socks!

Xander is getting really bad about going to bed and staying in bed. He used to be so good. I just don't know what happened. So tonight I thought I would try a little bribery. This kids LOVES chocolate ( takes after hims momma!)

So after prayers, potty, chocolate milk, potty, band aid(not kidding but you get the idea) I walked him to his bed and slowly open a bliss chocolate square and set it down by his bed. I tell him "Xander, if you chose to eat this chocolate you are promising to stay in bed, because this chocolate is only for good little boys who go to bed and stay in bed." Of course he gobbled it up. I was really thinking I was pretty dang smart and that it had worked and about 30 minutes later he comes downstairs looking like this.....

HELP!!! He's so dang cute I just cant be mad. I need some helpful children hints!
