2012! And lots of pictures.

Happy New Years Eve folks! We have had a crazy Christmas time and I am glad to be coming down off the high of presents, people, too much food, & way too much booze! We had a multitude of celebrations with all of our families and as usual, Scarlet made out like a bandit.

Santa brought Scarlet a John Deere Gator!

and lots of dollhouses and little things that produce blood when stepped on in the middle of night...

John & I got to go out for a drink with some friends that we don't get to see often! Some good looking ladies & fellas I must say. ;)

Also my sweet hub got me this hunka hunka jewel!

This little kitten got to skip her normal early bedtime one night and attend a party with mommy & daddy. And why not let a drunk stranger draw a cat face on your kid at 9pm with a food marker? Oh cause it stains, that's why. Yup she had a cat face for three days. A green one.

We had brunch and snuggles with cousins.

And snuggles with grandma's and presents.

Right now we have my sister in town so yeah, us adults have a blast but throw 3 kids age 3, 2.5, and 18 months and we are all at maximum stress capacity.

So that's the end of 2012. See y'all next year!

So I have been on the shelf fence about the whole Elf deal.  I didn't really want to do it because I am lazy and who in their right mind would purposefully create more shit for a parent to do? I laughed at Jess's post because it is oh so true but then, then I thought ya know what? Why not produce some funny shenanigans for my gal and keep her in line all at the same time.  Don't worry, you won't find any kitchen counter "snow" angels here, just some good clean fun. (oh god, what have I become, clean fun? Ugh I disgust myself).

Anyhow, my MIL did the deed and got us the elf.  We decided to introduce the little sucka to Scarlet after her nap Sunday.  I wrapped up the box and addressed it to her & put it on the front porch.  When Scarlet woke up I told her I thought we had a package.  She went to the door and asked if she could open it. Of course I said sure.  We read the book and told her all about how elf reports to the big guy, yada yada yada. Then she had to name it.

"Nuffin Three Dollars."  I shit you not. "Nuffin Three Dollars" is our elves name. What the hell? We will now refer to it as N3D for length of typing sake. So we just stuck N3D on the entertainment center and didn't say much more about it.  John and I thought it may be good to not hide it or make it do some crazy shit because at 6:30 in the morning I don't have time to be following Scarlet around helping her find a elf, or cleaning up some mess I made.  So this morning when I woke her up I told her I thought that N3D had moved... She used the bathroom and went to the living room to get dressed and she spotted it on the counter next to her cereal bowl, but the cereal bowl was full of gummy bears, jelly beans, and goldfish.  She got a big kick out of this cause duh, who gets candy for breakfast? (a kid that gets sent to school, that's who)!

So that is where we are.  We got the elf, the kid likes it, and I really liked seeing her face this morning.  Happy Christmas, I hope you like our new family member as much as we do!


Operation WANA

I must have only thought I was in a funk.
I got out of it.
Last year this badass chick started a great thing. I will let you read about it here on her blog. If you are able, please go read through the comments and PAY IT FORWARD! This time of year is hard for a whole lot of people and while helping out 5 or 6 may seem small in the grand scheme, it is huge in their lives.  Please spread the word about Operation We Are Not Assholes!


Bad blogger award came out. I got it. Ya'll we have been so busy.  I really don't have a lot to say.
 Last weeks tragedy has had me in the dumps. 

I can't seem to put any words out here regarding that.  

The holidays are coming fast and here we are facing a new year.  This shit is happening too fast.  

Our little girl is growing wiser, sweeter, and more beautiful by the day. I am so thankful for her.  

I hope you all have a blessed holiday.  I will probably be scarce around here for the next couple of weeks, I will try to get out of my funk. 

Merry Christmas.
