sweater song

while in attendance at Whitney and Sam's ugly sweater party, a friend asked us if we would like her to take our picture as a are 3 of the 10 pictures that were taken, these are the best ones...

 nice, huh? but i cant complain, as you can see i was participating in the wackiness.

Natalie won the ugliest sweater contest, here she is with her "trophy" a coffee mug that Sam picked out at Goodwill.

Hilary and Laura show off their ugly sweaters, personally, i think Laura's is pretty cute, i would wear that. Hilary worked the hardest on making her ugly sweater, but since there was no second prize, she walked away empty handed  but jingling all the way.

the early birds

early does not begin to describe when my day started, in fact , most days i would consider right now (5:31 am) early.

i woke up at 3. i could hear dominic moving around in his room. he had to go to the bathroom...he had turned on 3 lights.
after being blinded by the light, i went back to bed...and laid there...and laid there.
finally 4am decided to get up, dominic had all the living room lights on and was finishing up The Wonderful Wizard of OZ on his Kindle.

we ate breakfast and decided that there was no time like the present to start lessons for the day, also that there was no sense in changing out of our PJs, it is 4:45am.

with any luck we will be done with school lessons by time everyone else wakes up.

so i guess we are early birds this morning.

O' tannenbaum.

this is what christmas would look like at my house if i had my way

this is the tree this year, the kids decorated it.

my way: a color scheme
Their way : COLORS

my way: a single color of lights
Their way: COLOR

my way: a nice shiny bead garland
Their way: COLOR

you get the idea, its not that i dont like color...its that i like controlled color. and they like COLORS!!!!!!!

side note: i started this blog as a personal life journal that i agreed to share with everyone. i stopped blogging when life wasnt as "pretty" as it had been, im going to try to start blogging again, because even when life isnt pretty, it is a story, and whats a great story without some not so pretty parts.

pajama day

these photos pretty much sum up my afternoon

 now you see him
now you dont, at least that is what he thinks.

Dominic earned a pajama day by getting his sticker card filled, apparently pajama day = crazy good times. when lessons were done a game of solitary balloon baseball was had while i tried to keep the baby's attention away from the balloon, not easy when big brother is leaping around the living room in hot pursuit of said balloon.
