New Year's Eve

Well, it's New Year's Eve. The day starts off, I'm trying to sleep in and the kids are yelling and crying for breakfast. Like they can't wait 5 minutes. Sheesh! It's only 9:00! hahaha! So, I get up and make them some frozen pancakes and milk. A little later I'm on Dallas Area Moms and bouncing between that and Eastside Mom's and checking in here to see if any new comments have been made. I know...get a life. hehe! So, then I got bored and decided to take a bath and just as I was about to get out the kids come running and say that someone is at the door. Well crap! I have to find my robe and I have my hair wrapped up in a towel. Lovely. I go to the door and it's the person that I made a meal for because she just had a baby, returning the dish I left at her house a while back. She looked at me and said sorry I came at a bad time and I said no, I shouldn't have been taking a bath in the middle of the afternoon. We said our thank you's and she left. I go to put the stuff up and she had put a thank you note inside with some homemade gourmet stuff. A cider mix and an ambrosia muffin mix. Yum! The hubby came home early from work and we played Jr. scrabble with the kids. It was fun. We made oven fry pork chops, potatoes au-gratin, and corn for dinner and a little later I made the muffins. Really good. They kind of had an orangey flavor to them. The kids are in bed now and the hubby and I are going to watch "The Prestige" from blockbuster in a little while, kiss and say "Happy New Year!" and go to bed. Happy 2008 Everyone!!

McDonalds Playdate

I met a friend up at McDonalds today. We had fun. Just talked and watched the kids play. I told them not to take their socks off and they did it anyway. Gross! They said they couldn't climb up with socks because they are slippery. Whatever! I think this is going to be the longest two weeks because the kids are out of school and i'm already going crazy. It's like they have to be entertained every minute. Help!! If I'm going to have to go crazy, I want someone to do it with. Anyone?? What cha wanna do?

Nicholas' Doctor Visit

I took Nicholas to the doctor today. His teachers at MDO said that he has been crying when he's in line waiting to go to lunch and saying that his legs feel wiggly. (I guess that means shakey) and he has to go lay down because he doesn't feel well. They have P.E. before lunch. This has happened 3 or 4 times so, I decided it was time to go and see what this is about. The doctor said it could be hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and recommended he have some blood drawn. When Nicholas gets in the chair he says "Is that a needle?" and his eyes get big and starts crying but, he sat there and let them do it and the crying didn't last long. He did good. Now we just need to wait for the results. Diabetes runs in the family especially for the boys so I hope everything comes back okay. I will keep ya updated.

UPDATE: The blood tests came back and everything looks good!

The Boys' MDO Christmas Program

Friday night was Nicholas and Jake's Christmas program at MDO. Jake's was at 6:00 and Nicholas' was at 7:00. Jake was nervous at first and putting his fingers in his mouth but, once it started he sang and was doing the motions and he was on the left side of the stage and we were sitting on the left. He was really getting into "Jingle Bells". He's been practicing that one at home over and over and over. hehe! We didn't know where Nicholas was going to be on stage but, he was smack dab in the middle and all we saw was the side of his head and every time he was finished with a song he would turn to us and wave. It was funny. haha! Oh! The five year olds were the best with their version of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas". hehe! The lord was really leaping, the ladies (lady) was really dancing and the maid was really milking. She had a latext glove blown up and was pulling the fingers. You had to be there. It was hilarious. I took lots of pictures but, none of them turned out. Wah!

Sneak Peek

I took the kids to Harry Myers park in Rockwall and took some pictures for everyone's Christmas Cards. Here's a sneak peak. I think they turned out pretty cute!

Cuddle Buddies

Nicholas likes to snuggle with Hayley. They are really close. Jake's a loner. hehe!

Ear Infection & Tube

I had to pick Hayley up early from school on Monday because the teacher said she had her head down on her desk most of the day. So I took her to the doctor and she has a double ear infection and she has to have a tube put in her right ear because she has had more than 4 infections in a year. So I made an appoinment with Dr. Robert Wyatt (Garland Rd./George Bush) for Monday to have the tube put in and I think they said they will use gas to knock her out. Oh boy!

UPDATE: Hayley had to have tubes put in both ears. Dh took her in at 6:30 for surgery. They made her drink some stuff to make her sleepy and then they gave her some gas and then when she was asleep they put and IV in. She woke up in recovery with the IV still in and she cried a little and then she got to come home. She just slept and was in and out all day. She finally pepped up and watch the "Bratz Movie". We love it by the way. She ate some ice cream because her throat hurt a little and then it was time for ear drops and tylenol and off to bed.

A Holiday Fun Filled Week/end

Friday the boys and I went to a holiday cookie exchange at my friend Jamie's house and it was lots of fun. I made popcorn jumbles (white almond bark & m&m's). I picked up another friend, Beth and we headed over to the playdate. When we got there the boys went directly upstairs to play and the adults sat around and talked and ate and then we got our cookies and headed home. I sampled everything and let me tell you, it was all yummers. This was with the Dallas Area Moms Group.

Later that night was my first time to play bunco and it was a blast! Don't ask me to keep score though. hehe! I won $30 bucks! Whoo Hoo! I think this is going to become a regular thing. Oh no! Another night out. I don't know... It was at Kristy's house from my Eastside Moms Group.

Saturday we went as a family to a party that dh's friend David and his wife Joedi were hosting. It was fun too! One of their friends was being bartender and making everyone drinks. I had a Cosmopolitan. (girly drink) hehe! That's what he said. We played a really fun game called CLR. (Center, Left, Right). You get 3 dice. On each dice there is a C, L, R. Everyone starts with 3 dollars (3 of any denomination of money.) I can't explain it well but, you can get the game at Spencers at the Mall and I think I'm going to, maybe for Christmas! Wee! This would be fun for a MNI!

Sunday I just hung out with my BFF (Karen) and watched a movie and chilled. It was nice. We can just hang out not even have to talk. That's how comfortable we are around each other. I love it. Hayley had a soccer game after church so the hubby took her and the boys to the game and it was just me and Madison over at Karen's. I should have thought and let Nicholas go with me so his friend Brandon would have someone to play with. That's me though, never thinking of something until it's too late.
