We had a great Christmas this year. It was a generally stress-free holiday. We got about 4 inches of snow on Christmas eve! Talk about a white Christmas! It was awesome! I think the best part was that the kids were finally old enough to really understand the true meaning of why we have Christmas. It was so fun to set up our nativity scene with them and have them ask questions. Lizzy even make Jesus a birthday cake with her new felt cake-decorating set. Hope everyone had a good Christmas too!

Once again I have procrastinated and so my Christmas cards are a flop...again. I had some printed out but they were way grainy and just didn't look right. So...I am posting this to our family and friends to say a very Merry Christmas. Hope all is well with everyone and that the season finds you so happy. We love you all very much. Sorry it is so impersonal but this is the best I could do this year. Merry Christmas!

I suppose every mother waits for the day that her little girl will want to be just like mommy and get into her make-up. I actually doubted this day would come only for the fact that my Lizzy is an angel and never really does anything really naughty. Well...it happened and it couldn't have been more funny! I was calling her name because I hadn't seen her in a while and she didn't answer like she usually does. I started to look around for her and couldn't find her. I finally went into my room to check the bathroom and I saw the light on in the bathroom and scurrying going on under the door. I opened the door to find my sweet little Lizzy franticaly wiping her face with a huge wad of wet toilet paper desperatley trying to remove the make-up before I found her. She looked up at me (very dissapointed in herself) and said "Mom, can you help me get it off?" To hide my rolls of laughter I covered my mouth as to look horrified instead of completley amused. I told her that she needed to go on a little time-out first and then I would help her wash her face. (Only because my bathroom was a lipstick-covered disaster!) So...Lizzy had to do the walk of shame to the time-out spot. I felt bad because she was so embarrassed. Her Namma and Grandpa were there and she couln't be more humiliated. Of course Grandma was shooting off pictures and Grandpa was trying not to laugh. We then washed her face and she proclaimed to me: "Mom, I never want to wear make-up again!" I told her she was beautiful just the way she was and that when she got older, I would teach her how to wear make-up. Oh the joys of being a mother....:)

Every time we go to a restraunt, Trevor always wants the lemon. So...I gave it to him. We were dying laughing because he would make these horrible faces, throw it down, then pick it up and start eating it again! Anyway...here are some of Trevor's "Lemon faces"

Today, I came home from church to find a lovely message scribbled in the snow on my front lawn that read: B*&%$# in HUGE letters. I have been NOTHING but kind to these neighbors and this is what I get! I don't understand. I am the ONLY person on my street that will even talk to these people, wave hello and give them vegetables from my garden and this is how I am treated... I called the boys over (because they were standing right there on the corner...idiots...) I walked my neighbor boy home to tell his mother, and her response (from her blank face) was "Oh, okay..." She told her boy to get inside and shut the door! That was it!! No aplogy or anything! I am so livid right now! Anyway...thanks for letting me vent...
All my other neighbors are wonderful, by the way, and we have a great time together. But I guess it only takes one to make your life miserable!

Trevor is walking now!!! A couple weeks ago, he started taking tentative steps every once in a while only if he was coached or bribed. Now, he just thinks that he is pretty big stuff every time he stands up and walks by himself. Can you believe it??!!
