We just got home...long day...but a good one !
I enjoyed watching Ali and Dustin and Krista on the Wii they are loving just dance...Dustin is adorable...
They opened gifts from "grandpa" Randy and were all thrilled... He just smiles cause I am usually the one that feeds him the info of what to get...
but we were not supposed to exchange gifts...instead we are going out to dinner and a movie in January... I knew he got Wally some thing. it was some thing he had wanted to get him a while back... well him and Ali wrapped some thing for me...

let's say I will enjoy shopping at Michaels... wow and a 50 % off coupon this week ...hmmm I will be stopping in there the day I go to town...

My DGD only had 1/2 hour at home between performances and then I went with my DD to have her back there by 6. Lucky we did so we got some great seats. It is a small theater at a local college, so it was not a big audience but it was full. I guess that is why they had 3 performances so everyone could go see it at some point.

She did GREAT! She had 3 roles - a ragdoll, a snowflake (she was beautiful), and a Russian. We had 11 there. Her Young Women's leader from church and her husband were also there.

Got home late and I was exhausted, so I had some Mango to eat to take my vitamins and went to bed. Couldn't even stay awake to read.


Oh, I'm so glad it went so well!!!!

Somehow I had it in the back of my mind that he'd be home for Christmas because of something you posted a little while back, but then you made a comment the other day on FB (I think) that made me think that maybe he wasn't coming home, so I'm so happy for you guys that he's there. Is he sharing his treats with you guys?


Thanks.

He's here until after Christmas.

LOL!! Nah ... we have our own.

Next thing is that yesterday was the Schoener Family Christmas party, and she invited him to go to that and he was going. I'm also assuming that it was the same boy. I know there were pictures posted, so now I've got to go look at them and see who this boy is.

Guess I won't be having much Grandmom time with her anymore.


Oh my. Growing up ....

Your Family Day post reminded me of those Folgers holiday commercials when Peter comes home first from college then from his travels abroad. They always make me cry. I saw one the other day. Peter's 4 yr old sister is now a young lady and still spending that special time in the kitchen with him before the parents join them. Awwww

Actually .... it was cold ..... Hahahaha. 5 of us had to get showers .......


I've seen that one, too. Pretty cool commercials.

In the close up, my DGD is one of the Russians. She's the 2nd from the right - tallest. Then there is a picture of most of the troupe. I couldn't get them all in from where I was standing.


Wonderful!!! Looks like awesome costumes.

Larry knew I didn't get much sleep, so today while I was at work he put together Addison's tricycle. I wish you all could see the change that comes over him whenever she's around. She brings out the best in him.


Oh my. I'm glad nothing's broken. I hope she's not in much pain, and I hope you get some sleep tonight with no pain.

That's a VERY good thing .....

It's been a very long day today. Sunday school, church, party at my mom's, church (rehearsal), church service, supper, and home. Now, we're waiting for Jared to get home from taking a 'friend' home.

Ouch! So sorry about your mom but glad that nothing is broken and sorry that you aggravated your hip while trying to help her. I guess you think that hip replacement can't come too soon for you.

That was sweet of Larry to take care of putting that tricycle together. Something he should just do anyway. Little ones do have a way of getting to those old grouches.

So glad that you got to talk to your cousins that you haven't talked to in awhile. That's awesome.

Busy day.

Is he still involved with Victoria, or is this someone new?

I am a trifle upset with my DD. I know sometimes she thinks she's doing me a favor, but . . . I know how busy she is and she likes everything just perfect. I ask if I can help her do something like help with dinner. She says no. Then after a little bit proceeds to tell the girls to get things done. After we had dinner tonight, the dishwasher was already full and going so all the dishes had to wait.

My dd was taking a little snooze on the sofa, while SIL was working out upstairs. The girls were watching TV. I went in the kitchen to get some fruit so I could take my vitamins. Checked the dishwasher and started to empty it and put things away so the dirty dishes could get loaded. Next thing I know here comes DD out there taking over and telling the girls to come empty the dishwasher and put things away. Pushed me right out of the way. Some might think - go ahead and relax, but I've been relaxing all day and wanted to do something useful and helpful and was just pushed aside instead.

To bed, I think. I'm so tired, and I have to get up early to call the doctor.

Oh, I'm sorry, Maggie. I would have thought that she either wanted me to enjoy my time on vacation without doing that type of work or that she likes to put things away herself - her way. That happens a lot in my family. You should talk to your daughter and tell her how you feel. Keeping it to yourself isn't going to help either of you.

Well.... I don't know. I don't care. I'm a little sick of there ALWAYS needing to be a girl in the picture. I mean, seriously? Always!? Ugh. Sick of it.

I hope yourDGD can find some thing that she wants to do, if not maybe her dance would be enough...

After we had dinner tonight, the dishwasher was already full and going so all the dishes had to wait.

My dd was taking a little snooze on the sofa, while SIL was working out upstairs. The girls were watching TV. I went in the kitchen to get some fruit so I could take my vitamins. Checked the dishwasher and started to empty it and put things away so the dirty dishes could get loaded. Next thing I know here comes DD out there taking over and telling the girls to come empty the dishwasher and put things away. Pushed me right out of the way. Some might think - go ahead and relax, but I've been relaxing all day and wanted to do something useful and helpful and was just pushed aside instead.
I do understandMaggie...I always feel that I need and want to help when I am at the girls...

But if that is your grands respnsibilities then Maybe she wants them to do it or maybe she just does not want to do anything... either way I hope you all can work through this...and not take away from your time there Maybe she will let you help in some way if you ask ...

hope so hugs

Good Morning... I was disappointed that my program was not on...I thought it might be a Christmas related one again...Oh well...I read a little then Wally woke me to go to bed, I fell asleep in my chair...I had my chenille blanket and my heater I was all cozy...

I have some watery eyes this morning and my nose is giving me fits...so I think I may have finally got caught by a bug So I am having a stay at home day, resting and doing some odds and ends... I only need to go out one day one gift and some stocking stuffers and groceries... maybe tomorrow or Wednesday... oh and since I have that Michaels GC I hope to feel like looking around there too...

I need to bake a few more cookies and wrap presents
and CLEAN this house... but in no hurry, I need it clean for Sunday so I do not plan on doing much til friday... I will be home all day then, other than cleaning the bank

She'd like her dance to be enough, but she needs to also belong to some group through HS. A girl or boy needs connections in school where they have friends to hang around with. It's not just about the program.

It will be fun to go look at everything and decide what you want to do. I did notice the last time that I went that they have finally upgraded their Cricut and Nesties stuff. They have much more in stock now.

Sorry you've got issues this morning. Hope it doesn't get any worse. Vitamin C and that hot tea.

DD wants to go out and do some running around today. She said about 11 or so. I need some things also so I guess I'll be going along. Hate this weather though. Still raining.

I had a kind of early night. I went in and took my shower early. The family was watching the last few Survivor shows and then watched the finale last night. I did not get into it this year and didn't really care who won. I came in my room and turned on the TV. The Santa Clause 3 was just coming on. I thought I'd watch that after my shower, but I was really tired so I read for just a few pages and then turned out the light.

I heard my SIL get up and leave the house about 4:30. He had to catch a plane to Boston and will be there overnight.
