Work, work, work!

Ok this is my second day back at work, and though its good to see the people I work with....work sucks! I mean at least I have a job right? Ok so I shouldn't complain too much, but can i just have a part time job, stay home with my kiddos and get paid lots of money instead? ohhh that would be nice. By the way....I'm about to pass out on my desk right now. I'm tired, and I have this heater running, and ohhh man a blanket and pillow would be nice right now. To top it all off, I have like 5 things to wear to semi cover this baby weight, my pants are a little snug....ok more than a little....and if ponchos were in style I'd be good to go with this whole coverage thing, but they aren't so I get to be "fat girl." ugh....I miss my babies so much, and it's nice to come home and get to snuggle with all of them. I think I overload them with kisses. Well I should be working...HA...later!

Borrowed from Miss Mandi's post...

1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate?

Hot Chocolate! I haven't tried Egg Nog in a really long time, but all of the times...yes timeS I have tried it I did NOT like it at all. I don't know why, but there is something in there I just don't like! But I'm a big Hot Chocolate girl, even if it's not cold outside sometimes I'll crave it, and I usually end up putting two packets in because one is just not chocolatey enough for me and ya gotta have marshmellows too! Lots of them, and sometimes you need to add more when you ate them too fast....just saying.

2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
   When I was a kid I think my  parents had Santa presents for a few years and that was it. I don't really remember doing it too much. We just started doing it now, but we also have presents from mommy and daddy. That being said we have the BIG Christmas presents that we "asked" Santa for unwrapped and then the other little ones wrapped up, and mommy and daddy's presents wrapped too. We also bake a cake for Santa, and then Santa a.k.a Daddy eats it.

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white?

White, but this year we got a Christmas tree that is prelit and they are colored lights. I just think the white lights look so much more peaceful and pretty to go along with everything else, and when I say everything else I'm not sure what I mean....the snow...whatever, it just looks nicer ? cleaner? ok?

4. Do you hang mistletoe?

No...and I'm pretty sure if I did my husband would think it was dumb.

5. When do you put your decorations up?

Sometime around Thanksgiving. I usually get in the "spirit" of wanting to decorate for Christmas way before Thanksgiving so it's usually the week of Thanksgiving.

6. What is your favorite holiday dish?

The sweet stuff....but it doesn't really take a holiday dish for me to have the sweet stuff be my favorite. Oohhh but I do remember my moms homemade rolls...ohhh man they're good and you could eat like 6 of them at once and later on that day some more. I like peanut brittle, cherry pie....

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child?

I don't think we really had anything that stands out to me as "wow!! Remember when...".

8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
I don't really remember. I'm like Mandi I remember we use to have Santa presents, but it wasn't made into a big thing. Pluse eventually we'd go snooping around and find the presents so I'm pretty sure that's how we really found out about it.

9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve?

Usually we could get my parents to let us open up one thing. The pj thing sounds like a good tradition to start. We got Juliana and Bredun the same pjs so I might let them open that and wear it to bed.

10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree?

Last year we did white lights, and random ornaments that I had from when I was a kid. This year we have a smaller tree on a coffee table with prelit lights and some red garland, trapped between our love seat and couch so that the little hands we have running around don't pull things off.

11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?

The look of it love the feel of the cold and what it does to the roads....hate it. And just like Mandi says, I hate it when it starts to melt and gets all muddy and gross. ....and I HATE it when you get big ol chunks behind your car tires.

12. Can you ice skate?

Yes, not the best and it really  hurts my ankles after a while, but it's still fun. I haven't done it in forever though!

13. Do you remember your favorite gift?
I don't think I had one that really stood out.  Is that bad? oh well.... I guess that just means I really liked ALL of my presents.

14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you?

Remember who's birthday it really is...Jesus Christ..... and getting together with family and being all warm and cozy inside with them, and maybe going outside later to play in the snow...maybe, if mommy feels like it.

15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?

I feel like I answered this with the favorite holiday dish questions so I guess I'll just repeat in saying, the sweet stuff. Oh and I love the tin cans of popcorn that have 3 different flavors....mine were always cheese, carmel and cinnamon, but you can hardly ever find those three flavors together anymore, now they always have butter, and it is NOT the same as fresh warm microwaved butter popcorn.

16. What is your favorite holiday tradition?

I don't really recall a holiday tradition....??

17. What tops your tree?
Nothing right now, but we used to have an antique looking star that we'd put on top.

18. Which do you prefer giving or Receiving?

Both. I like getting someone something that I know...sometimes think that they will really enjoy, and having that feeling of "they think my present was the best" even if they faked it, they must have done a good job, because I could always get that feeling for the most part.

19. What is your favorite Christmas Song?

hmmm... I honestly can't think of my ultimate favorit, but I always enjoyed the good ol Silent Night

20. Candy Canes: Yuck or Yum?
Yum but more so the yummy flavored ones they have out now, like cotton candy.

21 Favorite Christmas Show?

Mines ELF too Mandi! Oh man I got that as a gift for Christmas one year....funny funny

22. Saddest Christmas Song?

I don't really  know on this one....nothing that really makes me sad.....because Christmas is the birth of Jesus and there's nothing sad about that right?!

Ok let me just start off telling you all how much we LOVE grapes in our family. I mean Juliana could eat a whole bag by herself, Bredun could eat anything and all of it by himself too, which leads me to earlier today.

Sitting on the couch watching TV, kids are playing. Juliana goes into the kitchen, pretends to "cook" and on her way back in, she tells me "Mommy Bredun is eating a grape off the floor...." Mommy says " Bredun come here that's ucky....bring it to mommy." Juliana hops over the baby gate and takes his hand to lead him to mommy.... As Bredun always does when he's caught with someone in his hands that he's about to put in his mouth he quickly pops the "grape" in his mouth. Takes it out and says "uck" and throws it at me. It lands on my laptop that I was looking at, so I pick it up and realize hmmmm this doesn't look like a grape. Kind of looks like a piece of chocolate....we don't have chocolate, must have been under the couch for a while. Soooo I smell it....nope not chocolate either it's POOP! yeah I said it poo.......gag reflexs kicked in, quickly grabbed a wipe and picked that nasty terd up and gave it to Juliana to throw away.

And that ladies in gentlemen is the story of the day....oh wait and then I changed his diaper but forgot I didn't have a diaper to put on him downstairs, so I sent Juliana upstairs to get one, Bredun pees on the floor. I love him! :)

End scene

Random post...

Ok so as I am sitting her "doodling" around on the internet, I have the TV on MTV and some new show is on and is supposed to be about following some young people from Jersey shore.....that's probably enough said right there just for people to understand how stupid the show is going to be, but listening to the introduction it starts off with a guy talking about how he has a tanning bed in his house to live up with the life style of a jersey boy....and now this is were I will change the channel....dumb.

I have to go back to work in a week! UCK....noooooo I don't want to *sighs, tears fall down face...breathing in and out, in and out*

I want to be in cosmetology school, I want a new job, I want to be with my babies a lot more than I will once I go back to work, I want to not have to worry about bills (oh wait bills never stop coming in so that won't happen!) I want a new job....oh I said that already...hmmm...I want a new job! I want to live in a different place, and town and state, but for now a new place.

Yeah this post was definitly random....kind of pointless too, but definitly random....

Picture Update of lil miss Kiya....

After bathtime with her curly hair, too bad it won't stay like that. It should soon though!

And a few of Bredun too....

He loves to play basketball. He'll even do a one handed shot with perfect form....it's cuteness for sure.

But I don't wannnnnt to!

I have to go back to work in 2 weeks....ugh I don't want to! It's going to get here so soon too. At least we have all of our Christmas shopping done, well we need to get one more thing for Bredun, but besides that we're done.
  We're planning on going to TX for vacation sometime in Jan, so that'll be a fun time and won't be too long after I've gone back, but I don't know if I'll be able to go then since my job now has some 90 day vacation notice policy thing going on. Dumb. If we can't go in Jan, then hopefully not too much longer of a wait!
    My baby girl Kiya is getting so big and I just love her to pieces. I can't find my camera connector for the computer to put up pictures and it's making me mad. Bredun is allll over the place. He's totally our little daredevil. He'll find anything....and I mean anything to put up next to our coffee table and climb up on it. He'll climb up on the arm of the chair and stand up and then plop himself down on the couch. He's falling off a couple times doing that. Actually he falls a lot....and just stares at you, doesn't really cry about it a lot. Juliana is ready for school, which I'm sure in a few months after going she'll not want to go, but we'll see. She's being playing "teacher" with me. We practice numbers and letters and what the sound of each letter is and what words start with it. She's still in gymnastics until the end of Dec. and she lovvveess it. We might be putting her in it for the beginning of next year but we'll have to see. I really want to keep her in it so that she has something to do, but it all depends on finances.
   Well this post was pretty pointless, but it had been a while since I posted and thought I should say SOMETHING, but I guess when you sit around doing nothing all day you don't really have much to say!
