So, I've been a slacker. It's that darn Facebook's fault. Really. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
We started out the month with this-
I'm assuming that it was Andrew. I hope he enjoyed it.
Here's a cute pic of my babies-

Andrew being his cute self-

We got the basement bathroom tiled, grouted, and the vanity installed. All that's needed is to put up the shower surround and install the toilet and that bathroom is ready for use.

We also got the boy's bedroom painted. It is a lovely shade of slate blue. I just need to touch up some flubs on the paint and then we can get the carpet installed and they can move in.

We had a good Christmas. We got all the usuall gifts - we each always get a box of cereal, a box of pop tarts, cocoa, fruit snacks, m&m's, books, and a movie.
This year Santa didn't leave oranges in our stockings like he usually does. Josh got a coconut, Kimi, Mike, and I got avacados, and the others got pears.
Everyone got one big present. Mike got Settlers of Catan, Michelle got a Wii, Ben got a computer game called Spore, Josh got Legos, Kimi got a digital camera, Emma got a computer Solitaire game, Aaron got Gator Golf, and Andrew got Toby - a huge stuffed dog. And since everyone needed new shoes, they each got a gift card for a pair of shoes.

Ben also got this fabulous shirt-

He hasn't worn it yet. I don't know if that means he won't wear it or that he just hasn't yet.

Two days after Christmas, Mike found this on

It's huge (I'm only about one inch taller than the TV), but it works well, and he's always wanted one. It only cost $150 so it was a real deal. I think it's funny that the Wii people are bigger than my kids.

On December 27, about 20 minutes before we were to leave for Church, I heard a thud and Emma yelling "He broke his nose! He broke his nose!". She had Andrew up on her top bunk and he fell off. It turns out that it wasn't broken, just bruised and scraped - Thank goodness! He sure looked horrible for a few days.

A cute pic of me and the thirteen year old-

Here's some pictures of said thirteen year old. I don't have too many pictures of him that are normal. Most have a weird pose or him pulling a face. The picture above is the third one I took and I had to bribe him to have a normal face.

I guess that's all for now. I will try to blog more often. I promise.
Have a great day!
