For my son, I got a small fish bowl and a goldfish with a letter from Santa saying how it was his special fish and he was getting too busy making toys to take care of him and that the fish selected my son from the list of good boys and girls to live with forever. I placed the goldfish in my son's room with the letter and my daughter looked at me and said, "I LOVED it when you did this every year mom, this was ALWAYS the BEST part of Christmas. I am going to do this with my kids every year." I knew when she was little, she was always so happy to see that Santa went into HER room and left her something extra special, but she never vocally expressed it to me before. It was nice to know she appreciated it and she really enjoyed being a spectator in watching her brother get his special gift from Santa. It was a really special moment to enjoy with my 5 year old son and my (almost adult) daughter. Awe...getting warm fuzzy feelings just thinking about it...
That is so sweet. I was surprised to learn that Marie does not believe in Santa, that was kind of a bummer...but its hard for me to realize she will be a teenager in a few more years and is already acting like one... To know that my "baby" is now 26 is amazing, its scary the way the time flies.....

A Belated Very Merry Christmas to all....I had a Great Christmas as usual with family...only problem was kids were with ex this year for the first time in a long time.. ...so that part was hard...my kids are 16 & 19 and this is the first year they did not get a present from Santa...guess its time...but they did get their stockings filled...Now today I am driving in freezing rain to Detroit (3hrs) to cheer on the Mighty Central Michigan Chippewas in the Motor City Bowl...look for me on ESPN...lol

Here is an early wish for the greatest of Tiggerific New Years to all my DIS friends!!!

Can you say stupid mommy!!

She gave me a weird look and once I realized what I did I started crying. My daughter came over, hugged me, patted my back, tried to hold back the big grin on her face and said "it's ok mommy I don't know what it looks like".

So I explained that Santa delivered it early because he needed our help putting it together. She was still so excited once she actually saw it. Eesh...not sure how much longer I can keep up the charade .
Awwww.... *happycry*


Mine lost the magic several years ago so I ended up taking her out shopping Tue. evening for most of her gifts but still managed to sneak a couple purchases while she was looking elsewhere in a store. She has to have *some* kind of surprise to open! :-)

Good Evening everyone.

In my family we cook lasagna for New Year's Day. Christmas dinner is beef tenderloin, cooked in brandy and maple syrup ... I still have left overs which will probably disappear before the weekend is over.

My son, Jason, Christmas and birthday present is always a cruise in January. Which we will be going on in 8 days...

I've been good but very busy. I spent the day playing with my new Sony Alpha 350 that Santa brought me and have been tying up a bunch of loose ends at work because I am starting a new job in January. I've had a lot going on but all good stuff.

I wanted to drop by and say to everyone here since chat isn't there anymore.

I hope everyone is doing well. You got your RN or BSN, right, Sha? Any other big news?

Did the RN. BSN will come in a couple years. Have a couple classes to knock out of the way. And nothing that I will share on here at this time

Enjoy the camera. I am sure you will get many good memories captured! And good luck with the new job!!!

That sounds pretty yummy, Theresa, I might like to try that also.

As for leftovers, The two trays of lasagna is almost all gone here.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
