Things That Make You Go- Hmm?

What am I suposed to do with this much chocolate????

P.S. I'm also in phase 1 of the South Beach Diet where chocolate and all things sugary are major no-nos.

Christmas is coming the geese are getting fat...oh wait it's over

I've wanted to post some of my "handy work". But I've heard of some lurkers so I was afraid my gifts would be found out. So without farther ado:
Rebekah's purse, it actually turned out a lot better than i thought it was going to. I think I should make one for myself next. Maggie's PJ's, kind of boring
Thia's hat, scarf, and mittens. Totally cute and never disappoint. Gaius looks totally cute modeling them too (we need another baby girl)

I have one more thing but it'll have to wait for another post because I need to take a picture of it. So I guess... to be continued.
oh and by the way Marc broke our "stockings only" rule and got me Guitar Hero world tour with the drums. So now I can fulfill my rock star dreams in the privacy of our living room. Yes it is romantic!!!

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Goodnight!

This is seriously the best I could get. You try getting 3 kids to stand still 4 days before Christmas, I dare you!

Words from The Backseat

Here's a conversation I got to ease drop on from the driver's seat.

Xavier- Brandon do you know what a crush is?

Brandon- it's when you break something into little pieces

Xavier- No not that kind of a crush, a crush like  when you like someone. I like Abby S...

Brandon- you mean you like to run around pretending to shoot her?

Xavier- no i mean when i see her i have to pinch my arm so that i don't look at her.

Brandon- i don't know what you are talking about

Xavier- Oh nevermind.

The Gingerbreads make gingerbread

Leia and i made this gingerbread house last week. It was a lot of fun! Leia decorated a snowflake cookie and one side of our house. While making her cookie she would take bites out of the candy and then add it. So we have a snowflake (lawn ornament) with half eaten Tootsie roll pillars on it. It made me laugh. She's such a character lately. Having kids is so entertaining!
