Hi all. Just thought I'd pop on and post these pictures tonight. They were from Saturday right after we left Brennen's basketball game. He was in shorts in the snow - not a good thing. The two elves were teasing him about not being properly dressed. I'm sure everyone driving past thought the exact same thing. Unfit Mom - unfit Mom. Somebody call CPS. Notice I was hiding him behind Brent for the photo op. HA! And take a peeksie at Brent's face in this shot. He is trying really hard to smile. Truth is...he was petrified. Yes, I said petrified. He was scared that Kenidi was going to pull another attack on the animals like she did the parrots when we were in Gatlinburg. Remember THIS? If not, read up on that post and you'll understand what I mean by her attacking the parrots. Notice the look on her face in this shot...? Brent was horrified and in fear for his life. He was for sure that they were going to be "horned to death" if Kenidi yanked on the poor reindeer's fur. Hee hee! It's candid shots like this fast and impromptu pose that leave me laughing when it comes to the memory bank. Geez...I love cameras. I just love photography.

It's been a long day. I feel like I've run a marathon. I did 75% of my Christmas shopping today all in one morning/afternoon. We are having all of our Christmas get togethers this weekend with both sides of our families as well as our own Christmas this Sunday morning. Due to leaving for Florida early next Friday morning, we are doing our family Christmas with the kiddo's early and will just have their stockings for them to open again on Christmas morning while at the beach. We have our Christmas at home with Brennen and Kenidi this Sunday morning, Christmas with my Dad and Cathy Sunday afternoon, and then Christmas with Brent's Mom and Ron, his brother, his sister, nieces, nephews, etc. Sunday evening. It's going to be a 3 in 1 day fo' sho'! A fun and exciting day though. I'm having Christmas at our house with my Mom this coming Tuesday. We are really looking forward to each gathering. I think I'm almost ready. I have a few more people to buy for and some gifts yet to wrap but I think I'll make it in plenty of time. I'm going back out tomorrow to finalize the last few people on my list and then I should be good to go. Wish me luck. We've got a really busy weekend planned with several holiday dinners/parties/open houses on Friday and Saturday and then we are getting together with our good friends, The Gray's, and attending a light show at a house up here by us Saturday night. It's a 30 minute show that you watch from your car and listen to with music from a specific radio station. Remember the light show email that floated around last year with the house that was synchronized to Christmas lights...well I think this is a similar set up. Sounds fun! We are having dinner afterward. Great night - I'm sure of it.

I just talked to my Dad. They flew back home tonight from Florida - same local/place we are heading next week. They left 82 degrees and sunny weather to come home to rain and cold. All of our snow is pretty much melted now due to the rain yesterday and today. Oh how I'm counting down these next 8 days until we can have our toes sugaring in the sand and our faces toward the sunshine. Until then...I'm off to hit the sack. Due to the fact that I marathon shopped today in order to be ready for this Sunday and because I just finished helping my little guy with a book report at the dead dying last minute (due in the morning), I am beat! I'm rounding this crew up and nodding off to sleep - early - for once. Hope you all have a great night.

PS...Keep those comments coming on the give-a-ways below. Can't wait to share the winners on Saturday. I'm lovin' all of this participation. You guys have blown them both out of the park. Keep em' comin'! Much love, Angie

OMG! HOW COOL FOR KIDS TO SEE REAL RAINDEER! I do see a very mischevious look on Kenidi's little face, you just know she wants one of those antlers, ha ha poor Brent, that's what he gets for not making you get in the picture instead, ha! I do have one question, If you did so much shopping, where was Santa in this picture? You sure you didn't promise him that black cross if he would shop for you? J/K Boy that is going to be hard to top, xoxoxo Mommy

Gosh! You got a lot more snow than we got!

Those Silly Safari guys are pretty cool. I'd see them from time to time when I was doing the music program at area preschools. When I was in Alaska in the summer I learned the difference between reindeer and caribou. As one native put it, "It depends what side of the fence they are on." Caribou are wild, and reindeer are domesticated caribou. (are y'all takin' notes?? HA!)

Funny that you are getting to bed early tonight! I just sent you an email telling you the I am going to bed early, too! ME! It's shocking!

You are WAY ahead of me in the Christmas department. I've been doing some of my shopping online. As always, I'll get it done...

Karen, I lied. I'm still up. Just got your email and emailed you back. It's 10:50pm and I'm still awake. So much for the wishful thinking in regard to visions of sugar plum fairy dreams in bed early tonight. Didn't happen. Got both kids in bed and now I'm trying to catch up on some emails that need replied to.

Yes, alligator Aaron and Jungle John are a hoot. They hosted Brennen's 4th or 5th birthday party. Can't remember exactly which one. They brought in all kinds of snakes, alligators, animals, etc. for his party. It was a real trip. Needless to say, Brennen was in heaven and so were all of his little friends at the time. When we saw them on the side of the road with these reindeer, we knew we had to pull over and get a photo op beings that I had my camera in the car with me. SHOCKER - I know.

Anywho, thanks for the lesson on reindeer tonight. I need all the help I can get now days. Can you help me with 4th grade math now?

Love ya gur-fren!

well Angie....I have enough snow for all of us in my yard right this very minute. :) How I ended up here instead of moving south (from OH) like I planned when I was a kid, I will never know.

Love the photos. Reindeer rock. We have a reindeer farm about 5 miles from our house. And don't tell your kids (cuz I don't want to traumatize them) but reindeer sausage is YUMMY! It is a commom breakfast staple around here.

I love all of the wonderful experiences that you and the family share. Amazing. I wish all families could experience it and have all of those memories.

I love your blogs... you could blog about cleaning house and it would be interesting.

That picture is truly priceless! Too cute!

It would have been a hoot to have Brennan in the front with his shorts on...ya know snow on the ground, elves, reindeer and him in shorts :)

Have a great weekend!

Love love love the pic of Brent, Brennen and Kenidi with the reindeer!! The fact that Brent is holding Kenidi with both hands and trying to stop her from grabbing the reindeer has me laughing...and the look on Kenidi's face is almost like "What? I just want to pet the reindeer!"

Sorry, I won't be helping with that math! I've seen Brennen's wacko "new" math, and besides, I've told you -- I'm a musician; I only count to 4! HAHA!

I'm from the northside and am curious about this light show set to music?? Where have I been? I've lived here for 8 years and have never heard of this. Can you give me a website or more info on this? Sounds like a great time!

Hi Heather. Our friends work with this family at Lilly that has this whole lightshow on their house. Apparently they've spent over 800 in the design and set up of it. It's a 23 minute light show syncronized to music on a radio station within your car. I don't have the exact address because our friends are the ones who knew about it and are taking us there. However, I know it is off of Spring Mill Road down past 146th Street. The family who does the light show is being interviewed early in the morning next Wednesday on channel 13 news. You might try to watch for that preview or special. me directly after Saturday night and I can tell you exactly where its at after we've been there. My direct email is
Hope this helps somewhat. Angie
