The Good News is....

Well, the good news is it is warming up. We are up to minus 10 right now. However, the bad news is that it is going to get colder!! Now, some of you I am sure are wondering....can it get any colder?? Oh yes, it can!!! (we just hope it does not!) and of course, we also have more snow in the forecast. ugh. We will definately be having a white dreaming of it here, as it has become a nightmare!!

One of my favorite stories that I used to read to Alex is The Christmas Story. Well, Alex really does not enjoy sitting with me and listening to me read anymore, but guess who does.........

Yes, my little Arthur loves being read too. Excuse my hair, I wear a hat all day at work, so not very attractive when I get home.....

and look what else he loves to do.........invade the Christmas tree!! What I don't understand is, he only bothers the tree when we are right there watching him. He has all day long to destroy the thing, but he just sleeps.

Unfortunately, if he's looking for gifts for himself, he will be sadly disappointed. Have not done any Arthur shopping yet.

I am off today, and have gotten a few Christmas things done. I need to get my house cleaned and then focus on the holidays the rest of the weekend. We have some more shopping to do and would like to do more baking, but that's not a high priority right now.

I will leave you with one of the pics on our Christmas card.....

Doesn't Alex look happy?? Christmas pics gets more fun every year!!!

Hope you all have a great rest of the week. Please keep Miss Kayleigh in your prayers, her prognosis is not good, they got a little glimmer of hope today, but still is not good.

I have a 15 year old and a 12 year old and to try to get them to smile naturally for a picture is a joke. q:o)
I try to act goofy and they just roll their eyes.
Your Christmas card is cute and Arthur looks very interested in the book.
Stay warm and enjoy your day off.

Love the pic of you and Arthur. Are dogs the best? Teenagers and pics. Oh well, at least he stood and at least let you take it!! LOL..

Stay warm and safe in all that snow. We are also supposed to get bad weather but nothing like ya'll, I pray!! 2 winters ago we had a blizzard at Christmas. That's no fun! Be safe!!!

God Bless~

Oh, my...I can't believe it's supposed to get even colder! Brrrr!! LOL...I have to laugh at your son's facial expression. Looks about as happy as MY boys when I ask them to pose for a picture! Typical teens, I guess.

Love ya!
