Christmas Joys!

We had a fabulous Christmas this year. It was kind of a struggle getting me in the Christmas mood, but once I actually started doing my shopping and decorating it was lots of fun!
We were very lucky this year to be able to spend Christmas eve and Christmas day with both of our families. We went over to my parent's on Christmas eve afternoon and my mom and dad took the grandkids sledding. They had a ton of fun! After that, we got together and ate and opened presents. Then we headed out to Ken's sister's house to see his side of the family. We got there and we ate some more, and opened some more presents.
Christmas morning was spent with just our little family opening our gifts. Ken spoiled all of us and got us a new laptop! We are all very excited! After the gifts, we met up with Ken's family and went to see 'Bedtime Stories.' It was pretty cute, and the kids loved it.
Christmas was very nice, but I have to say, I am a little glad it's all over...
And don't mind Jared in his underwear...my boys hate wearing pajamas! :)

Mr. Horizontal

Last night my sister and I were looking at my pictures and she made the comment that in almost every one Ken is laying down! Now, why would she say something like that?! ;)

I Confess

I saw this on my friend's blog, and I thought it might be kinda fun to confess some of my dirt...

* I have an obsession with Court TV (well, it's TRU TV now). I LOVE LOVE watching Forensic Files and The Investigators. I have thought about becoming a Private Investigator.

* I am totally OCD. I can't stand if things are crooked, I have to have all my clothes and shoes perfectly hung and matched up, I can't deal if I don't know where something is--I will look until I find it, I hate it when chairs aren't pushed in all the way, when I fold shirts they have to all be the same size or it drives me nuts... I could go on and on, but I won't. Ken LOVES living with me, it's so easy!!

* When I want something really bad I cannot stop thinking about it until I get it! I am spoiled! :)

* I am a huge list maker. I make lists for EVERYTHING! I love the feeling of taking something off a list.

* I love Hollywood gossip. I record Entertainment Tonight every day! I also love to watch True Hollywood Stories. I find celebrities so interesting.

* I check my blog and my email all day long!

* I hate to cook. Well, I don't hate it, but I don't love it. I would eat out every day if I could.

* I hate it when people kiss in front of me! That is not something I want to watch...A little peck is okay, but nothing more please!

* It drives me crazy to walk behind people that are so slow! Same goes with driving.

* I am fascinated by the body and how it works. I find myself reading stuff online all the time, just for fun.

* I love babies, and the little noises they make. So cute!

* I love going to the dentist. I know, I'm weird. But I love having my teeth cleaned.

* I get so frustrated by people that don't speak English, but they get mad at ME because I don't understand them.

* I think pierced noses are so cute! I love a little tiny stud in a cute little nose. If I could pull it off, I totally would.

* I like the feeling of getting my eyebrows waxed--It's a good pain!

Okay, I think that is enough about me. Now, let's hear some of your dirt!!! :)

So This Explains It!!!

A Very ThankFUL weekend

I just love long weekends when I don't have to work. This Thanksgiving weekend was fabulous! I worked hard, played hard, ate a ton, and rested lots. It was awesome! We went to my mom and dad's house for the feast. I was in charge of the rolls. I make the rolls every year... This year I had a special little helper. And I must say, I think he added a little something to them this year. The food was all so tasty! I think it might be because I like food a lot more than I used to...maybe a little too much!?

We also saw a few movies this weekend. Ken and I took Aden to see Bolt. It was so cute! Then the two of us saw Four Christmases. It was really funny, and very good! We both really liked it. And I also went with my mom to see the much anticipated Twilight. I was very happy with it! I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I will definitely see it again.

And of course we had to decorate the tree! That is my favorite part about Thanksgiving! Well, I like the food, but I just love that we are that much closer to Christmas!!!
