what is so hard about it

Why can't people give a gift receipt really is it that hard? Now I'm stuck with junk I don't want or need. I guess it will go in the re gift box for later. Along those lines how hard is it to ask me what we need. Better yet what sort of things my son likes.
How about a gift card so we can pick out our own books.

I feel like such a fool going to 3 different stores. to see if it came from them ugh....

Yes sorry I'm coming across ungrateful. Just year after year this happens because people don't bother to ask.

new years resolutions

Lets start this post with a cute picture of Nolan.

I haven't done any for a few years. So this year I'm going to make a small list of them 5-6. I like even numbers so it will more then likely be 4 or 6. some of them might not seem like much but that is ok. I will post them on the 31st or 1st still fine tuning them.

This odd winter weather has put me into a funk. Christmas just dose not feel like such a wonderful thing. We haven't been able to get out to see family. This is the first time I haven't spent the Holiday with family. I could go on with my list of don't haves but its not worth it.
Once I got over my pouting and took a look around. I noticed what we did have. Starting with each other. We got to watch Nolan open his gifts and play with them. We have a roof over our heads food in the house.

So no matter where you are spending this day of Celebration. Please take time to be thankful for what you have.

Merry Christmas

From our Family to yours. We hope you have a safe wonderful day!

So say you had the chance to move for a year or two. Where would you go?
I would love to live somewhere other then Oregon for a short time. Brian knows this about me sadly I don't think it will happen. Work could move us but that is very very slim to none chance.

I don't know where I would want to move. M aybe the eastcoast Maine, Road Island any where would be fine.

I had some time away this afternoon. I spent my time at the movies watching Twilight. The movie was alright nothing to write home about. Maybe I feel this way since I didn't love the book. I thought the book's were ok nothing super.I read all four because they were a easy read and I like to finish things.

I got to see the baby today not the best picture. We couldn't get the heart beat to come up. So they did a heartbeat check with the Ultra sound. Since the clinic was very busy we used the in office one.

Jan 22nd is my next apt 6 weeks from now we just moved it. That way we can do a ultra sound find out babies sex at the same time.

I want to do charitable gifts this year.So if you have a site/charity you love please let me know. I have Heifer international on my list. I have 10-20 per person to spend.

Once I get that taken care of my Christmas shopping well be done. I could do some sewing if I have the time.

Our Thanksgiving was good a little crazy with the dinner time being bumped up.
Friday Brian went to the sock sale at Fred's for me. Then we hit up down town Hillsboro and walked around. the little wooden toy story was having a sale so we got Nolan a few things. Which Grandma will be buying off of us. I'm done with his Birthday gifts also for the year.
