Christmas Thrills

Here are a few photos of my family enjoying ourselves Christmas morning. It was a joyous morning which started out with our oldest son reading a scripture and then my hubby leading us in prayer. Then it was time to rip open the paper that I so carefully wrapped (I keep telling myself it was worth the effort), and have a screaming fit over what they got! I can't say anything about screaming, because I broke a few decibels when I opened mine and discovered that after almost 18 yrs of marriage, my hubby FINALLY bought me a Dooney & Bourke bag!!! I've bought all the others myself, although he "claims" that he was going to buy one of them a few years ago, but I beat him to it! He's so funny! He even got his toy that he's been hinting to for a while....his prized GPS system. Working my little dept. store job paid off bigtime!!!

Before the attack

The aftermath

Me and my newest addition to my Dooney family!

Hubby and his toys!

Davon showing off his Leapster and prize-winning smile!

Christian and his Cars laptop (wanted a laptop like Daddy!)

Darian and his favorite action figure!

DJ and the LeapFrog Didj that he's bugged us about for months! Is the smile priceless or what?

DeeDee & CeeCee with the much talked about phones and their Daddy who reluctantly has to pay the extra bill! At least he's still smiling! LOL

Hope everybody had a blessed day filled with family and fun!

Christmas Blessing!

Just wanted to wish everyone a joyous and blessed Christmas! I hope everyone got what they wanted (or at least close!)! I got my Dooney (I'll include pics later), hallelujah!!!!! It's been very hectic with me working part-time and trying to shop (at the last minute) and then wrap everything. My girls were a big help in wrapping their brothers' presents and helping keep the house looking presentable. Before everything is over, I will post pics of my decorations and the kids attack of the presents! LOL Right now, I'm just going to chill from eating way too much good food!!!

Be Blessed and remember, JESUS is the reason for the season!!!

Show and Tell Friday - Snowman Pillows

Hey there ladies! My tootsies are killing me from working today, but I couldn't go to bed without posting! Earlier this week my oldest daughter had to help out at her Cosmetology class' late night class and I had to kill an hour waiting for her since driving back home and coming back was pointless. I stopped at Texas Thrift Store which was down the street from her school. I had just planned on looking around, but of course something had to catch my eye! These snowmen pillows were so cute and the price was unbelievable......$0.95 each !!! Then to top it off, everything except for green ticket items were 50% off! So that's a little less than fifty cents each! I brought them home and febreezed them to death and they reside on the couch now!

I'm Still Around!

Just wanted to say hi to everybody and let you know that I'm still around. I've been working a part-time job at a department store to help with Christmas, and I'm totally worn out when I get home. Keep me in your prayers that I don't have to do this long, because I'm tired of hurting! LOL Hopefully, later in the week I can post some pictures of my decorations. I'm still putting them up, since I'm too tired to do them all at once! Have a great Monday!
