It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like...

Here are two of my trees. I actually have one more in the office to the right, but couldn't fit it in the frame. Can you tell I like Christmas?? I'm actually being tame this year.

Registered two kids for Spring Soccer. My 13-year old daughter, who played soccer for six years and gave it up two years ago, wants to play again. So, I've signed her up. I suspect she's reeeaaaallly rusty, but isn't it kind of like riding a bike? A little conditioning and a few skills classes to brush up, and she will be ready. I'm not sure why we have the sudden change of heart, but as long as she wants to stay active, I'm fine with it.

I am sad--it looked like we were getting some snow on Christmas day here, but now it is just rain. It's been in the 50's here, so no snow for us. And NO, I'm not complaining, but I do like to see a "little" white for Christmas. Then it can all melt the next day and never come back...heh heh...

Thing Four is completely potty trained. It only took a day. He's been going regularly ever since. I am actually surprised at how easy it was, once he was ready. My other kids were scared of the toilet/scared they'd fall in/scared of their own poop/you name it, but Thing Four is AWESOME.

Me yesterday: "(Thing Four), you are AWESOME!"

Thing Four: "I know, mom. I wanted to be a big boy so you wouldn't have to change my poopy diapers anymore."

Hello, Little Lord Fauntleroy, much? He just needs to call me "dearest."

I have a head cold, and I can't sleep. Luckily I'm more at the end of it. Head colds make me whiny and boring. Well...more than usual!

Keep warm, everyone, only THREE days until Christmas!!!

HEY, I just realized I forewent my favorite Christmas tree countdown widget! ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? What's wrong with me???? Maybe I can find it real quick! Oooh, yes, I did!

Those trees are lovely! And congrats with Thing Four -- you're right, a very old soul.
