This year Marc and I decided that we wouldn't get each other any gifts due to a serious lack of funds so the kids can have clothing and a few toys this year. We don't ever do a big Christmas and don't ever want to. We like the idea of smaller Christmases. Well, thanks to a tidbit I read somewhere, I was able to make something for Marc for FREE! I am sooooo excited to see his face when he opens it. I was also able to do one for my mom and his parents which makes our shopping easier and I know they'll love it.

Things haven't changed much around here... We did go to the dentist this week and Hannah and Jaidyn have great teeth but Shaylee is another story. She has 5 cavities with one of them almost to the nerve... She's never complained of any pain and has gotten along just fine with eating. So, the dentist suggested we have all her work done under general anethesia so it will be less traumatic for her. Well, since we have partial custody of her we decided to call her mom and see what she would want and she said it would be fine to have it done that way. So, on Tuesday she's having all her work done and a sealant put on all her other teeth to protect them. She's 4 1/2 and had never been to the dentist which I feel she should have gone earlier, but that's my opinion and that's that. All I know is, it's going to be a long day since as far as I know, I'll be alone and have to bring Hannah and Jaidyn to wait with me which will be hard to contain them for so long. Backpacks with activities will hopefully help, but we'll see.

I'm really excited for Thanksgiving and even cooked a pre-Thanksgiving dinner and loved it! Marc just laughed at me, but really it's one of my favorite meals.

Happy Friday!

Oh My Goodness!

My daughter Hannah has recently fallen in love with High School Musical! She begged and begged me to rent the movie so she could sing with it since that's all she wants to do is sing. I rented #1 and she had some of the lyrics down within a day. She is soooo funny and an amazing singer. I am amazed she can carry such a great tune. She knows all the names of the characters and we went to rent number 2 today and now we're watching it for the second time. I love her excitement and love that it can be something just for her. Now, the dilemma comes as to what to do for Christmas as far as HSM goes.
I never thought my almost 5 year old would already be into such a thing, but she really is surprising me every day as to her growth and independence. She's an amazing little woman for her age and I'm really proud to have her as my daughter.
