What If They Hokey Pokey Really Is What It's All About......And Other Random Thoughts

As most of you know my grandmother passed away on December 12th, 2008 due to complications from heart surgery. It was very unexpected and her death has been very hard for me to deal with. Thank You to everyone who has sent their condolences. I really appreciate it.

On a happier note..... My baby actually looks like a baby now!! My blog widget has really freaked me out a little bit, but I noticed today that my little creature now resembles a human! Yay! We go in Monday morning to hear the heartbeat. I've felt so good- I don't even feel pregnant except for the fact that I'm getting a little bit of a baby bump.

I'm usually one of those people who have all their Christmas shopping done by Thanksgiving. Well, I haven't even really started. If anybody has any fabulous ideas for Jordyn I'd really appreciate it. I'm thinking a Karaoke machine would be great for her, but Roudy says she'd have to shut herself in her bedroom to be able to use it! Now, that's not very nice...........

Asking For Prayers......

My grandma had open heart surgery yesterday and things didn't go even close to as planned. I'm asking for prayers on her behalf. For a detailed explanation of what happened, click on my step moms blog......

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth.....

Jaxon lost his 6th tooth today- Finally!! He had to have the four bottom teeth pulled out almost 2 years ago due to a wrestling injury. Then he bumped his front teeth on something and knocked them loose, too. One of the front teeth came out, but the other one has been dead and loose for quite a while so I'm glad it's finally out!! I'm glad we didn't lose four at once again.....I hear the going rate for the Tooth Fairy is $5.00 a tooth!

Nutcracker 2008

Jordy did the Nutcracker Ballet on December 5th and 6th this year. This year Jordyn was a Butterscotch Princess and a Fairy. I'm so proud of her- she did great!

Wrestling- Fall 2008

Sorry- I know the picture is horrible. A picture of a picture never seems to work out......

Jaxon had a wrestling tournament Friday night and he ended up with a first place medal! He had a great season, only losing 1 time (to a kid 5 lbs. heavier.) He has had wrestling 4 nights a week for the last couple months and I'm definitely ready for a break! We get about 6 weeks off and then the craziness really begins with a 5 month freestyle season!

The Stockings Were Hung...

I got sick of waiting for Roudy to find time to put up our Christmas tree we cut down a couple weeks ago, so I went downstairs into the basement of death and found a few little Christmas things I could put up by myself.

I'm having major anxiety about having another family member and not having another stocking hanger for her.......
This is the ONLY good thing about having an elk head in my house....

My Body Is Being Taken Over

Anybody that knows me knows that I HATE eggs. They smell like a fart, have a terrible consistency, and are just plain gross. And yet, that's all I wanted to eat for the first 6 weeks of my pregnancy. I didn't just want any old egg- I wanted the yolk runny so I could dip my toast in it. And I hate egg yolk. I've had pregnancy cravings before, but it's always been stuff that I actually liked. The only thing I can figure out is that maybe my body was needing protein? I'm just glad that my little egg craving has passed, for now. Today I had to go to the store to get my mom some orange juice and the nice lady at Albertson's tried to give Trason a potato wedge. He didn't want it so, of coarse, I ate it....and wanted more. I got myself a half pound and sat in the car and ate them. The whole time I was stuffing my face with potato wedges, I honestly had EXTREME guilt. I knew I shouldn't be eating those, and yet I couldn't stop myself. I'm scared.......

Another Plus..

I went to the mall today. It was hell. I haven't done ANY Christmas shopping yet and usually I'm done by now. Anyway, I decided I'd splurge a little and get the kids one of those firetruck strollers at the mall to keep them contained. Well, I managed to get one without buckles so I spent 3 hours chasing Trason thru the mall. It was a good time....

I bought the baby some clothes today, too! Yay! I bought girl clothes because the pencil test says I'm having a girl. The pencil test doesn't lie- it's like a weeji board (only you don't have to sell your soul to the devil.) As I was leaving I noticed one of those "expectant mother" parking spots that are always right up front by the Handicap spots. Next time I go to the mall I'm totally taking advantage of that!! I already know that people will be like, "I can't believe that girl parked in a spot for pregnant women. How rude!" There's no rule saying you have to be showing to park in one of those, right?

**Is anybody else freaked out by my baby widget? I swear that little things tail keeps getting longer and longer and I swear I just saw something that looked like a snake's tongue hissing coming out of my "baby's" "mouth"..........
