Thanks Giving '08

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving in Texas...Angie cooked this year and it was some good cookin!

We were joined by Galena's friend Jenny from London, and another set of friend's of John and Galena's and their little girl. But all in all it was a nice time with some good food and some good times, which is what Thanksgiving it about. I was sad at times that I wasnt in VA with my family, but they were in my heart :) I am thankful that my family is here and everyone is doing well, I am thankful for my son, and his health as well as mine and for everyone I know and love and hold dear to my heart.

Our Christmas Tree

Tis the Season...well it isnt yet Christmas yet, actually it has not even touched Thanksgiving, and yes, I have decked our halls...LOL! I just feel that I needed to put some cheer into our household, and hey I have to admit, it is way too much work to only have the tree up for 25 days and then have to take it down again. Plus I must admit I do like looking at the pretty lights. Christmas is my all time favorite holiday! I just love it and I can not wait for it to come around each year. I love the feeling it gives to people, love, family, friends, togetherness.
Here is my tree for all intrested, I am proud of it!

This is the NEW tree topped - isnt cute!

New PJ's

While Michael seems to be on this never ending Mario Brothers Kick, we have now become radar detectors for anything Mario related. It doesnt matter where we are, if they have anything Mario we are all over it! We have even made up Mario things, and had it made or something along those lines.



Lets not mention his want for a Super Mario Bedroom, Quilt and all, which I dont think we will EVER find unless we plan on going WAY 80 vintage and spending an arm and a leg, and that isnt happening, he is 6 for crying out loud!



ANYWAY, we were out shopping for winter clothes and low and behold MARIO JACKPOT!



In addition to the Mario shirt they already had (which by the way we HAVE) they have added 3 more designs...and no I didnt get those and will need to go back this weekend. On the plus they ARE LONG SLEEVED!



They also have 2 different designs of a Mario shirt that BLINK! yes they really blink, I am still trying to figure out how you are supposed to wash it...



THEN they have a PJ sets, yeah more then one!



The one he REALLY wanted is the full body suit thing with feet in it...Do they have a name? Footie Pajamas? I dont know - what ever they case we have invested in Footsie PJs.



they also have a cute button flannel type material with matching PJ pants, which is way cute and I think I will pick that up for a Christmas gift.



Then they had the thermal type but they are cotton, and it is a set of 2 of a mario design, he has that one, BUT I saw a different design at Target!



yeah gonna need to invest in those too!



Also for anyone intrested they had the most adorable fleece PJ pants that has Wii all over it!



Yeah GO MARRIO!!!!!!!!!!!!



Do I get a tax write off? How about some stock in Nintendo?

Go to Your Quackin Bathroom!

I have decided to decorate Michael's bathroom...what I wanted to do was make it spiderman or something very boy like, but I was having issues with finding any spiderman things at the stores..true I could have got it off the internet, but oh well, I didnt want to wait for it. I am impatient like that...well I was out and about and shopping finding sales! When I see Shower curtains for $4.99 at Ross! They had a very good assortment of them, and if I had not JUST done my bathroom I would have totally picked something out for me! Well I ended up seeing this cute ducky shower curtain, NOT vinyal but clothe!

I was "ify" because I wasnt sure if the ducky theme was too babyish, but oh well Michael is 6 he can stand for some duckys for some more time. LOL!

Then they had other little ducky accessories too, I got some ceramic ducky shower curtain hangers, a tooth brush holder and a cup holder, you know to rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth...they also had a trash can, and a soap holder but I didnt get those, I will wait...the bathroom will have to be completed slowly LOL


I also got a lite yellow bath rug and towel, I am going to get some light blue towels to put in there also, and see if I cant put ducky stencil on the wall or a boarder trim thing.


But for what I got and did to his bathroom so far, I spent UNDER $30 there is no way I would have been able to do that buying these things at full price, I am pretty proud of myself!


YaY me!

Happy Halloween!

We had a nice Halloween! Michael has been asking for his friend Preston, so Mike thought it would be good to surprise him and go to Preston's so they could trick or treat together! He had a really nice time :) Enjoy the pics!


Of course he HAD to be Mario!






And they are off, trick or treating!





This was an awesome house we saw!

Someone jumped up out of the coffin and scared the boys LOL

Walk-a-Thon (Pt. 2)

We went to Michael's school to cheer him on as he walked to be drug free! It was fun! He completed 8 laps! YAY Michael!
They got very cool shirts, they were printed inside outwards, it says "Don't let drugs turn you inside out"

Enjoy these pics!
