Christmas Came and Went.

It was so stinkin fast! Our holiday was fun-filled, happy, meaningful all wrapped up in a nice bag of CRAZY! Seriously though, 4 Christmas's in 1 day is just outta hand! I keep thinkin, "How the heck can I do this better? How can we still see all our families for the holidays but spread it out?"

See now, this is no easy task seein as how both our families are in the area. We obviously have our Christmas when the kiddos get up then we head to my dads for breakfast and gift exchanging. Well then we Have to go to Smithville for lunch at Mema's and there's no changing that one. It's been lunch at Mema's on the holiday for as long as I can remember and if you can't make it then you can't make it. There is no movin that one around. Then we come back and do the extended Decker family for dinner. Oh and did I mention that Christmas Eve is with the immediate Decker family?

Now don't get me wrong, I love my family. I'm just tryin to reduce the craziness! So far I have no solutions so any opinions are welcome. I'll post some pics later today.

What the heck have we been doin?

We had a blast at Thanksgiving in Smithville and the Decker's. So good to be with family. This is my sis and cousins:

Then we headed up to Chattanooga to visit the Richmonds. They live in FL now and we miss you guys so much! Owen, Gabi, Logan and BrynnWent to the arrival of Santa and lightning of the tree on the square. It was

fffffrrreeezing but Big Brother loved it. Doesn't Lil Sister look like Ralphy?

This has to be the best Santa pic eva! Big Brother and Santa are soooo over it.

And here's our tree:The End

Christmas Came Early in the Decker House!

He is off today and informs me the night before he's got some "stuff" to get done. Hmmmm...what's he up to. He has to take my Jeep and then I notice the stoller has been taken out and placed in the garage. So whatever he's up to is gonna have to fit in the trunk.

Well he finally makes it back and out pops a DELL box!!! It's just about the size of a puter!! OMG I can't believe it actually happened! I tell him we can't do this right now. We don't have the finances! No matter how much I've pouted I'm a big girl and I'll be ok for a while! He assures me it'll be fine.

So we rip it open and get it upstairs. He says we are just gonna use our old monitor instead of buying a new one, which is completely fine with me! Well the monitor is so old it won't work with this fancy new contraption! So he grabs the keys and bails! Not even a good bye, see ya later, be back soon. This time he comes in with ANOTHER Dell box! He said he was gonna wrap the monitor and put it under the tree for X-mas but's gotta be done now.

This machine is Amazing! The screen is gynormous! I kinda wanna take a picture of it in all its glory. I had absolutely no clue! I was thinking maybe in a few months but apparently the Black Friday deals were just that awesome and he couldn't pass them up.

So there you have it. The most awesomest hubby in the world and the most awesomest present eva!

I have been without a 'puter for about a month now. At least I think it's been a month. My heads kinda swirly and disoriented so i'm not exactly sure how long it's been. it crashed. That's right crashed. He said I got the "blue screen of death". I have nothing backed up because I could never burn a disc on the durn thing. I try to hurry and get in and check my emails on his laptop before he rushes off to work which, lately has been before i take the kids to school. Then he gets home and has to do work on it so i try to slip a little me time on the puter when I can. This has taken a toll on my mental well being. If you know me you know my addiction. I think about it all day...things i could be researching, browsing or learning new skills on. I miss my friend and i mourn our time together. So what have I been doing you ask yourself? Well I sak myself the same thing...wake, get kids ready for school, go to school, do some cleaning, daydream about 'puter, holiday decorating (which really doens't take that much time), play with B, more cleaning, more daydreaming, get kids from school, make dinner...bored! sooooo bored!

Many have pointed out the obvious: He works at Dell and you don't have a 'puter! Haha yes, I see the irony. As a wise woman once said,"It's like the mechanic whose car doesn't run, or the doctor who's sick or the baker who has no flour"...ok i made that one up but, you get my point. Until well who knows.
