I may turn into a ice cube before this is over with, and my poor children are going to forget what it is like to leave the house. Like I am going to freeze to death buckling and unbuckling car seats 20 times just to run some errands.

Today we went and finally meet our friends' adorable baby girl who was born right before Thanksgiving. So between trips out of town, colds and ice we finally made it over for a visit. We won't even get back into the whole baby fever thing.
On to other things, I am chopping my hair off tomorrow. Not sure how much, but I will make that decision depending on my mood when I get there in the morning. I always do what ever I am feeling at that moment when it comes to my hair. This is one of the few times I have actually had an appointment. Next, I am looking for a cheap Elf On The Shelf set. It is so close to Christmas that it is not worth paying $30.00 but I think it will be a great tradition to start next year. So if you see any cheap ones let me know. Thinking I may find a deal during the after Christmas sales.

After she is all bundled in her towel I pick her up to take her to her room. She snuggles in closely and lays her head on my shoulder. It is such a nice moment, and one that I make last a few extra seconds. My girls are getting so big these days. I no longer get those little snuggles through out the day they are just to busy for that.

The ice is even worse today since we got freezing drizzle (whatever that is) last night. The temp still hasn't gotten above freezing, but my school is open today. There are hardly any area schools open so I am not sure why we are. I am actually looking forward to go to work and the post office this afternoon. What am I going to do once I no longer have this escape. My boss emailed me yesterday to tell me that they hired someone who will start at the beginning of the year. This is actually starting to become real.

I ordered my Christmas present yesterday, and we picked it up at Best Buy. Mr. B made me although I told him exactly what I wanted. He said he did want to hear me complain or not use it when he got the wrong thing. I got a pink IPod nano, which I have to wrap and put under the tree. So I have spent the day trying to figure out how to wire the thing into my car. I think I have it figured out, parts and everything. I am just a little scared to remove parts of my dash. I have also loaded all the CDs I could find onto my laptop. All I have to do on Christmas is sync my IPod, and we are ready for our road trip the next day. I will be really proud of myself if I can get all this done myself. (Well with Mr. B's help of course.)
I hear the rascals fighting once again. That must be my cue to get off the computer. Not sure I will be able to make it another hour and a half if they keep up the shenanigans that have been going on all day.

I forgot to mention that with all my coupons to Sears, I got the girls Christmas pictures taken for $5.34 with tax. (I always get the package it works great for us, and then I don't have to decide who gets what pose.) But last night I discovered that I still have a whole other set of the same coupons. So I am thinking of having a family picture with the 4 of us. And I am in love with Gymboree's new Wild One line. Perfect excuse to buy these jumpers for the girls. What do you think, wouldn't it be perfect with Mr. B and I in black? Just some middle of the night shopping when I can't fall back to sleep after I get the girls back to bed.

I will not shame your eyes on my pathetic tree. The tree itself is really nice, Mr. B picked it out all by himself. But the little people are constantly ripping ornaments off, and then they just get stuck higher up. I remember why we didn't get a tree last year.
Hope you are ready for Christmas and enjoying the season. Miss L is starting to understand the real reason for the season. We have been talking and reading about Jesus's birthday constantly. Although she wants everything she sees, she is also asking if we can sing "Happy Birthday to Jesus" and make him a cake.
