Random Christmas Stuff

Christmas hugs to all, just thought I'd jot down some random Christmas thoughts.

My neighbor has these really great icicle lights, they are neon bluish, garish, well suited to lighting a North Pole burlesque show, and I freakin' love them! I have a bad case of icicle lights envy.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT over eat pop-corn, even if it is coated with caramel or white chocolate. Pop-corn is fiber, and salad for lunch to balance the guilt of too much sugar coated fiber is more fiber. Fiber overdose is NOT pretty.

I have the most incredible boys. #1 and #2 used their money to be Santa for their little brothers. #3 got in on the act by giving his Game Boy DS to #5 and #4 was on a mission to get the lowest cost Christmas presents of all the brothers or none at all.

We have a new baby at Boy House. He's adorable, a boy (of course), 6-8 months old and deeply loved by 8 big brothers. His name is Titan he is a Rottweiler mix or Muttweiler as I have dubbed him. #4 has cleaned up every potty trip and everyone is more then willing to feed him and take him for walks. I wonder how that will last.

I got a set of mooses meece a male and female moose made by my sister for Christmas. Her Husband didn't get it. My husband didn't get it. Our Daddy loved moose, it was his high school nickname he passed it on to my Mom and well...OK I don't get it either but, I love my moose'.

My sweet friend Suzie came over just before Christmas to take some pictures of the two of us for a present she was working on. I think it was the first time in my life I was able to focus on the good beautiful me instead of the rolls and wrinkles. Thanks Suzie for being my best friend ever and seeing me better then I see myself. She took some pictures of me with my boys. I'm going to try to post them.

This truly has been a joyful Christmas we have soaked in the abundance and beauty of life. Thanks to all of you for your love and for sharing our lives this past year.

Thanks to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for his loving example of how to live in joy.

Adorable Hubby and Boy Mom followed by Boy Mom and #1- #8

Oh the day I switched from an already fibre loaded cereal to a REALLY MEGA fibre loaded cereal which was yummy so I had a second bowl... I thought I was dying! I was seriously ready to call an ambulance, I have never experienced anything like that. But, um, that's probably not something I should share publicly.

I love the photos of you and all your sweeties. I've loved every photo I've seen of you... especially the one with the cheeky smile over on the side with your profile, it used to make me wonder what you were thinking about when it was taken... now I just assume you are wearing one of your naughty tank tops ;-)

Thanks for the Christmas breakfast. It is one of my favorite traditions. The pictures got me a tad teary eyed, they turned out great. I loved the moose too, I want to see where you put them next time I'm over there.
