Lets Talk

What a week since we talked last. My tree has gone up twice. I originally always decorate it in pinks and I have a we are now all reds golds and whites....(alot of santas). I completely decorated it and took it all down..and re decorated it. Yes...I'm nuts. I was looney when it was all said and done. But the house is decked and the halls are done. We are officially decorated. I start baking soon... I have done some candy. Went to a cookie exchange and had a blast. Enjoyed myself with great woman.
My dear friend F from high school is here all month and we have been hanging together alot. It's nice to have her around. My dear friend C is thinking of coming to see me in Feb....which I cannot wait. That will be nice.
My birthday was great. Had alot of people I haven't seen nor spoke to in years email or call. I was so surprised. Even an old boss called. Birthdays mean alot to me. They have always been special. Scott took me out Saturday night. We had a really good time. Tonight we went with my parents to a local restaurant and had a nice meal. Instead of cake for dessert they sent me a tequila shot in a jalapeno pepper...and let me just tell hot hot baby....I had to soak my mouth in ice
But i had a good time. I spent the day with mom....and we had fun.
Tomorrow we have a play date set up with F and her son. Miller has a haircut. (say a prayer for me) and gymnastics....
I should be finishing up my Christmas shopping this week. Almost done. Which makes me feel really good.
Miller is getting a fish (pish as he calls it) from Santa. We babysat the neighbors fish over Thanksgiving and he fell in love with Sparkles. So.....I need to get the pish on Christmas Eve.....
Christmas cards are slowly going out this week. And neighbors will be getting their goodies this weekend.
I love this time of year...I can smell the fresh pine and it smells like Christmas.
Enjoy your week everyone....

A lot of work, but I'll bet your decked halls look wonderful. Are you going to post a picture of your tree.

It must be nice to have your friend there and then to look forward to another one possibly coming. I love when my old high school friends visit.

Glad to hear you had a great birthday and that Tequila shot sounds wicked. Although I am not much of a drinker, a glass of beer here and there, I know I would not be able to turn this down. I love anything hot, hot, hot.

That's cute that Miller fell in love with Sparkles he will really enjoy watching the fish. Remember my gold fish three fin spike tamayo, I hope you guys come up with something better then that.

PS I tagged you if you want to play along.

I can't imagine decorating my tree then re-doing it. But I do love a nice trimmed tree. I am sure it is beautiful.

The Christmas season is a wonderful time of year isn't it? Last year I was quite a Scrooge but this year I am totally into it.

You have a busy week, as usual.

I can't believe you did your tree and then redid it! You could have come and done mine instead! I'm almost done decorating but the shopping is still slow.
Glad you had a good birthday!

Awww... Judah has "George" our pish :) He loves George like nobody's business. Miller is going to be SO happy on Christmas!!

I am so glad you had a nice birthday! I was thinking of you all day long. The story about the shot made my eyes water! I don't like tequila OR jalapenos!! :)

Hope you are having a wonderful day, Jen!

Oh, I can't believe you did your tree twice! You must have a lot of energy, girl. I bet it looks great.

A fish will be fun for Miller. They are so relaxing to watch.

I am so sorry I missed your birthday. I hope you had a very happy one, and I hope this is the best year ever for you!

Happy Birthday!
