Friday Night Leftovers

  • I have watched Princess and the Frog no less than 8753245767564x.  Gianna knows the words and starts singing before the movie….
  • Mike has been working a lot lately, including overnight shifts.  It is really freaking hard to keep a 20 month old quiet during the day.  He is doing great and his hard work is appreciated so much.
  • Patiently waiting the arrival of several more packages from UPS. HURRY!!! A few gift cards to get today, and we are done shopping!
  • One of the places Mike works is – he has a bad habit of bringing home MORE stuff for the tiny girl who lives here.  It’s kinda cute. But I am running out of her special santa paper….
  • I love getting Christmas cards.
  • This week has been a cooking fail.  Oops.
  • From my post the other day – G also says PWEEEZEE (complete with sign!) whenever she wants something (yay manners!), but she usually says “pweeezee. Okay!" followed by whatever it is she wants to do.  Obviously I say “okay” a lot when she asks for stuff. It’s hysterical.
  • Any tips on how to work on patience/waiting your turn with your toddler?  She wants us to do everything 10 seconds ago and gets so mad when she has to wait for us to do something.  Just a little frustrating.
  • Starbucks coffee is so good.  I don’t know if I can go back to Folgers…
  • Excited for a girls day tomorrow – going to a tuba christmas program, making cookies, having lots of snacks and a sleep over at my Mom’s with my sisters, grandma, aunts and G too! 


As always join Danifred & Co to share in the leftovers

I absolutely adore getting Christmas cards. Going to the mailbox every day is like a special treat.
I'm still not done Christmas shopping and I'm starting to stress.

This is my favorite time all year for getting the mail. I LOVE Christmas cards and we have a detailed Christmas Card spreadsheet so we know who is sending to us.

I keep meaning to do this, and then something comes up and I have a full post to write! Perhaps I can finally manage it today.

How is Christmas in a week? Where did 2010 go??

Hahahahahaha...patience in a toddler. You're funny! It works in my house just b/c neither of them knows what it's like to get all of my attention. I've also taught Matt how to take a deep breath (in through the nose and out through the mouth) when he's getting anxious. He probably thinks I'm nuts, but it also works mid-tantrum!

I go and get the cards out of the mailbox every day at lunch. We read them and hang them up. Then the Crazies spend 10 minutes talking to everyone's pictures!
