Mary beat up Jesus on Christmas

Oh look there's baby Jesus (Brandon) in the manger (bucket) and Mary (Jordan) squashing him because she wanted to be in the manger too. Poor Brandon. He ended up crying during the nativity play at my grandparent's house on Christmas Eve. It really ended up being hysterically funny because he kept trying to push her out of the manger and she'd get out then try to climb back in. I was reading the Christmas story and having a hard time not crying laughing. Kids sure make everything interesting. We had a really lovely Christmas overall. I got an Ipod Nano which I am thrilled about. A new cellphone, and a years membership to the gym I've been wanting to join.

Speaking of working out, I am now thinner than I was when I got pregnant with Brandon. Sure I've got a ways to go but I've lost the 30 lbs. that little heifer made me gain. LOL Kidding! I'm really enjoying going work out at the gym. I get two hours of uninterrupted me time. It's awesome.

Here is my redneck (AKA Alexis) in the Tony Stewart car she asked us for.

Yep all in all a pretty good Christmas. =0)

So excited!

I've decided to try out for a design team position at The Little Scrap Shop! Everyone wish me luck please and keep your fingers crossed! Here are the LO's I submitted. I had to use 6 of my favorites and one altered project. This is what I came up with!

Please help!

Okay our church is having a talent/no talent show Sunday night. I agreed to participate. There's only one problem! I can't decide which song to sing. I've narrowed it down to three and could use a bit of help. Please click on each of the three links below and listen to the song... Don't pay attention to the cruddy kid or the other stuff on the video. Just listen. (I didn't actually tape myself because my hair wasn't fixed etc. I look wild this morning. LOL) Then please comment and tell me which song you think I should sing... Please! Thanks a bunch!

Here's the first link... Silent Night

Second... Hark the Herald

Third... What Child is This?

Broke Back Momma

Ugh! My back is still killing me from last night. I was playing on the floor with Jordan in her room when she JUMPED on my stomach and I felt something happen in my back. I couldn't move for about 10 minutes. I finally got up and am doing a bit better today but Alexis yelled at Jordan... "You broke Momma!" LOL I found that hilarious, it's not a good idea to laugh while you have an injured back though. Not a good idea at all. Oh and this was after Jordan rubbed my not recently shaved legs and informed me that they were "thickery". Which I have no idea what that means. Sticky? Pokey? You mean the hair is so thick it's like a thicket? What? LOL

I have good news! My kids are not the only weird ones!!! Imagine that. The other day I brought Alexis to gymnastics and was sitting there feeding Brandon when this cute little girl came and sat beside us and was talking to Brandon and I. We talked about her nickname and how old she was. She asked me what Brandon was eating. I told her and then... She said, "Guess what? One time I ate a dead roach off of the floor. It was kinda sour." Ummm yes I imagine it was dear! LOL Ick. I thought it was only my kids that went up and said crazy stuff to random strangers. Now I don't feel so bad.

Speaking of gymnastics, Alexis has been moved up to the next level which is fabulous! It means I get to go sit in the cold on Friday morning in hopes of getting her a spot in the Saturday class before all of the others fill up. YAY! I'm going to freeze my butt off, but I am so proud of her. She had a Dr's appointment today and they increased her bi-polar and ADHD meds. I hope it helps.

Anyway that's it for now,
