It is freezing cold here. Saturday we could not start the truck because it was so cold.
opened our xmas presents on Saturday because Roy starts nights today
and is working nights the whole week and he wanted to have time to play
with toys. It was good Quinton liked handing out the presents to us
The biggest surprise for me, is Roy got me an ipod
touch, which is really cool. We bought some games for it to try it out
and there is enough room in it to fit all my old time radio shows. How
nce is that?
Sunday there was no power for 3-4 hours, which is not
good in -30 Celsius weather. Good thing we have a fire place.
Quinton told me yesterday he was hunger while the power was out and I
was thinking of making sandwiches and then I realized we could have
hotdogs over the fire, which he totally loved. He ate 2 and a half
Yesterday, Ronan turned 3 months. It is hard to believe, where has the time gone.
works nights this week so it looks like we are going to open presents
this weekend so that he has time to play with all the toys the boys get.
I have one last batch of cookies to make, a cheese cake and hopefully
we will go and get pictures with Santa in the afternoon.
we came home Friday from Edmonton because there was to be a cold spell
happening and boy it was a cold spell. Saturday was -30 Celsius with
wind -40 and today I woke to the gauge saying -35 Celsius (about -30 F)
with wind -47 or so Celsis.
Made the first set of cookies today. I
have A LOT of cookies to make. I plan on filling containers of cookies
for the family because we did not buy presents this year. Oh surprise
you guys are getting cookies.
Tomorrow I hope to get Quinton to
help me decorate our 2 foot Christmas tree. He has been a good sport
with helping me wrap presents, he has even wrapped some himself (which
look way too funny).
It is 8pm and the kid is driving me CRAZY.
weather permitting, I plan on taking the boys to the farm for a couple
of days. The lampworking guild has their potluck dinner on Thursday
and I would like to attend since I have been unable too the last couple
of months. And maybe I can get some shopping in too, not so much xmas
shopping because I am not buying anything for anyone, just "me"
shopping. (Maybe a present for Roy that I can afford because he has
Anybody want a kid for a couple of days? You pay the shipping!!!!
I picked winners for the last months giveaways. I combined Oct and Nov
giveaways because I have baby brain. December giveaway has a bird with
the flowers that is why the thumbnail is different from the main image.
has been sick the last couple of days and has not slept very well
during the day. And it is midnight now and I know I should be in bed
but here I am like a crazy woman.
This past weekend we were sick with very bad colds, thanks Roy for bringing it home.
But today was better for us and we went out to hang with the other mommies and their kids.
Tomorrow, I hope to get torch time in to make more xmas beads to fill my orders.
started sucking his thumb, 2 months old and he is sucking his thumb.
