 The boys took there places and it was like a tornado went through in 5 minutes flat! We had to trick on of the boys! It just wouldn’t be Christmas without one! So wonderful son #2 asked for and only wanted an electric guitar  this year, mind you I tried very hard to talk hubby out of this, but it didn’t work so wonderful son #2 got his wish but under the tree was one lone present for him, he had given up hope that he would get his wish.

Thank you honey!! He cleaned up on the loot too! He got a popcorn machine for his room in the basement, a new shirt, and pj’s, and a new coat Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket I found him a very nice Air Force coat and snatched it before it was gone! His big present is a Microsoft Zune that he is getting after Christmas. So he was very excited about that. It was a very good weekend hanging out with the boys just having a good time! We got a big snow storm this weekend and it left us with about 7 or more inches of snow Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket so the kids didn’t have school today so they get to keep playing with there toys!  I got some packages in the mail this last week that I will show you later today or tomorrow, I also updated my etsy store with some of the hand dyed yarn, so go check it out!

Overdue

Things have been a little nuts around here the last week or so and I haven’t had much time for blogging but I hope that is going to change very soon. JI had a great thanks giving with my family I haven’t seen them since July so it was really nice to see everyone and I got to snuggle with my Baileigh.
