Well it has been a month since I last blogged...Not that anyone reads it anyway but here goes. Things are going well. We have been out of school for a week due to the ice. I have really enjoyed my time off. I love being home with Jimmy. I cant wait till I can work from home. I did do some scrapbooking today. I had no pictures so I only made pages. I know I'm pitiful! But I enjoyed it anyway. My dad is doing well after the pacemaker. He will go next month for the biopsy. We are praying it isn't cancer. Here are some random pictures....
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We did. I have not blogged in a few days because my dad got sick and was in the hospital. We initially thought it was from his medication that was making his heart rate very low but it ended up being that he needed a pacemaker. He is home from the hospital and he is doing very good. I got to sleep on a cot at the hospital which was horrible. I'm not a small woman so everytime I got up and down (which was about 30 times that night) I felt like the bed was going to collapse! Dad had so much fluid build up that he lost almost 5 pounds during the night which is why I was up 30 times! Oh well...he is better and that is all that matters!
I'm going to go ahead and post picture because I have a lot of cooking to do today. Tonight we are going to my parents house. I think Alex liked all her gifts. She made a list so that what we got. I believe her favorite thing was a Light Saber! Yes my almost 16 year old daughter wanted a Light Saber. Oh well! You have to watch the video of our cat Zoi...she is so funny. Merry Christmas!
Alex and I have been baking all afternoon. Chocolate chip cookies, fudge, and Paula Deen's Mystery pecan pie. I highly reccomend the Ghirardelli chocolate chips. Probably the best recipe I have ever used. Alex's fish Roger Prodactor jumped out of his bowl and down the sink. Jimmy being the wonderful dad he is went to the Family Dollar store here in Kansas and bought a pipe wrench just to get the fish out. Well with much struggle we were not able to get the 40 year old pipe loosened. So there we were staying our last "goodby" to Roger Prodactor. He will be the most handsom Beta in the sewer. So tonight we will watch the Grinch...last night was Christmas Vacation and today we watched Elf and of course we will open 1 gift tonight. I wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
I have to admit after being in Tulsa and going to Owasso yesterday that I love small town life. Its quiet, simple, and easy. There is no traffic.There isn't a million people everywhere. I was glad to be home!
We went to Branson Saturday just for the day. We wanted to use those season passes one more time! It was so cold. When we got there the temp had dropped 20 degrees. I didn't take a coat but I had my snowman blanket that I kept tightly wrapped around my head. The rides had just been closed as we got there so Alex and Ben were forced to shop. I ended up getting sick so we went home 15 minutes before the parade started. The lights were beautiful.
