Less than a week till Christmas...

From the lack of posts for my December blog you might think we have not had anything to do, but that is SO not true! I am sure you all can empathize as I can almost guarantee you all have been running around like crazy people too! I have had three Tastefully Simple meetings/holiday parties. All have been fun and informative. My fellow foodies are all lovely people.

Friday the 12th Santa made a suprise visit to The Learning Experience where the kids go to school.

E & B had a holiday party at Meme's work on Saturday...they saw Santa, did crafts, ate, and had so much fun! Thanks Meme and Pop pop. They also kept them overnight so J and I could go to the Wagner's Christmas Party. We had a gift exchange, had yummy food, and played some games. It was fun.

Sunday we all attended Lauren Hill's 3rd B'day (Jason's cousins dtr) at the Warren Community Pool. Evan had a BLAST...B was not to sure about the water. He wanted to chill with Mommy mostly. Meme also helped us out with this adventure. Thanks again!

I have had to go into REAL work early 99% of the days I work for robotic cases and I have been staying up late to try and wrap, etc. You all know the routine for prepping for the holidays.

Today I kept Evan home from school to decorate Christmas cookies and help with chores....yes, both the boys help with housework to the best of their abilities...for example today, both boys climbed on top of the table to help wipe it yes, the system is not perfect, but I am trying to raise non-traditional boys.....they will know how to cook, clena, do laundry, etc. Besides I need all the help I can get......even if it is from a 4 yr old and a 19 mo. old.

Evan got to play outside with Daddy in all the snow today. B stayed inside with Mommy because he has a COLD! Suprise!! You knew that was coming because the holiday is right around the corner and we are hosting Christmas. AHH!! I hope he is better by Mon. We are jam packed with adventures until the following Mon...

Well, off to bed! Hopefully I will be able to collect some phots to go with this post from Meme soon. Be safe out there in all that snow friends.

Gotta love Crazy Weekends!

Well, Saturday morning I attended a vendor show at a church in Roseville to promote Tastefully Simple. It was OK. I did get one party and a book party so that is wonderful. Then Saturday night J and I attended my holiday party at the Barrister House in St. Clair Shores. My mom and dad watched the kids. It was nice. The DJ did a great job, the food was good and there was PLENTY! It was a LONG day.

Sunday I had a Tastefully Simple house party in the afternoon that went extremely well. I got two bookings and a possible third. I am excited. It keeps me busy. Always something to do.....that's how I like it.

Storytime with Santa

Friday we went to Storytime with Santa through the Macomb Rec Center and it was FABULOUS! Evan had such a great time and was mesmerized with Santa. Brayden on the other hand, not so much! He enjoyed sitting with all the kids until Santa came in and said Ho, Ho, Ho.....Brayden was like oh NO, NO, NO! So he went in teh back of the room with Daddy and Mommy sat with Evan and enjoyed the festivities. Evan was chosen to go on stage and hold up the snowman sign.......I was AMAZED at how well he did! We sang songs, had hot cocoa, took pics, and of course there were crafts for the kids. It is truly FANTASTIC!

Where did November go?

Well I must have blinked because low and behold Nov. is gone. I woke up this morning and it is Karli's birthday (12/3)...Happy Birthday Karli! I have the tree up and decorated and all the outdoor decorations are up too, but I still feel blindsighted that Dec. is here SO FAST! I have been busy with Tastefully Simple, the kids, our work Christmas party that is this weekend, and trying to get my Christmas cards out. The boys both have had a bad cough that has been keeping them and us up some nights. So needless to say I am not always full of energy during the day. Good news of Jan 11th I am changing hours at work. I will now work Mon and Wed from 9 am to 9:30 pm. I am cutting my commute and mileage to work by 1/3.....YEAH! I am also going to be changing some daycare/preschool things around which will cut my daycare/preschool costs by 1/2......DOUBLE YEAH!!!!! Anybody want to watch two boys on Mon and Wed so I don't have to chain them to chairs (that's the plan right now)????? hehe!

Brayden is T.R.O.U.B.L.E! Today when I was stripping my sheets he decided to LOCK himself in the bathroom! Then while I was trying to get him out he was playing with the toilet, sink, bathtub, toothpaste, etc. You name it he tried to do it. I think he was actually SAD when I got the door open.

Evan is in an extremely independent/defiant least I HOPE it is a stage. Mommy and Daddy are about to pull our hair out. He tests J more than me, but it is still enough to make me want to tie him to a chair until he turns 25. He's either the best helper in the world or the child from h$%#! How does that work?

We have Storytime with Santa this Fri. I have a T.S. party Sat and Sun. The O.R. Christmas party is Sat night. There goes the weekend and then it is off to work on Mon. AHHHH!!! Tis the Season!
