We had a wonderful Christmas. Bella got her GA golf cart, ipod (i washed the last one which was only 3 months old), electric guitar and amp, new bed linens, clothes, wii games and Henry got a bicycle, waders, duck bucket, blue tick hound dog/puppy, wii games, boots, bed linens and lots and lots of toys. The puppy has been an experience! It's like having a newborn in the home all over again. He howls, whines and barks! I've had to baby proof the home and pick up all small objects! He loves my pantry.....imagine that! Henry is playing basketball and he is having a blast. He's a little aggresive and I never imagined that he would be. Well, I've got Juniors Luncheon on Saturday, basketball game, 2 kids parties and one adult party. Think I'll make it? Gonna try.
PHYLLIS and MOM......Go to Facebook!

On a lighter note, tomorrow night is my last obligation for Home Life/Juniors. We will have the Love Light Ceremony which benefits the children's wing of our hospital. Home Life is donating $650.00 and we are also donating $700.00 to our local Family and Children Services office. They will purchase Christmas presents for foster kids and needy families. We also have Christmas party tomorrow night. Fun! Can't Wait. Friday night, Service League is having a fundraiser.... Tour of Homes. We have 3 homes on the tour and it should be fun. I feel guilty because this will be the 3rd night this week that I have left my kiddies. Only this week!!!!!! Saturday we will finish decorating our float for the Christmas parade. Fun, Fun! Hopefully, it will not rain. It is flooding at this time.
I have a couple of pictures to post. My sweet and dear little brother sent me a picture of his baby. His baby does not like my children, but we love him anyway. My brother needs a couple of two legged children. I tell him quite frequently that if my children and his baby were in the road about to get hit by a car, I think he would save his baby first. His name is George...........as in George Bush? or George Washington? He is cute and he does like Aunt Selina.

My Christmas Tree
Parents Room table at Santa Breakfast
Bella with friends and Mrs. Kristi
Santa Breakfast is over. Wow, it was great. I was Chair of "Parents Room". It is relatively a simple room.....Decorate, supply the food, juice and coffee and that's about it. Display Hospitality! Since I talk a lot, I did not have a problem in this area. My daughter went with two of her friends and they showed up at 8:00 AM. It started at 8, so I was a little surprised to see that they were the first one's on the scene. They were excited about purchasing gifts in the Secret Shop. One of my babysitters took the girls. My husband and son were bird hunting of course.It appeared that every other members' husband or parents took their children, but I had to pay a babysitter $40.00. What is wrong here? Anyway, change of subject.
I've been on the hunt for a Small North Face Jacket for Bella. I'm trying not to order online, since every package that I've ordered has been delivered while I was at work........Needless to say, my nosey daughter has inspected each one. We have received 3 packages from Pottery Barn Teenand one package from Ebay and she has guessed or attempted to guess what is in each box. Of course, I just played "dumb". Henry tried to sneak a peek in the back of my car last week, but I threatened him that I would give-a-way the gift if he peeked. It was killing him.
We went to dinner last night and 4 out of the 5 children that were with us were complaining of stomach aches. My dinner was cut short and we headed home. Thank goodness, no one had a virus. When I pulled up in the carport, I noticed that our lab was not happily greeting me at the door and this is so UNUSUAL. I called her and then I asked my daughter to call her........she would not respond to either of us. Upon inspection, I noticed that she was wet on her neck, back and hip bone. She was wimpering and acting like she was scared to death. I finally convinced her to come to me (I wanted to assess her gait/walk). She was walking fine, but she just about knocked me down trying to get between my legs. She acted like she was terrified. We have a bulldog across the street and I really think she was attacked while we were at dinner. She has a broken tail according to the vet. Husband is worried....."How much is that gonna cost me?" Who cares, she is in pain! I could not stand to see her suffering.
My Atlanta trip last weekend was Awesome. One of my dearest friends from High School drove over from Birmingham.She brought her boys and they are so adorable. My daughter and I both fell in love with them. I did not accomplish a lot of Christmas shopping, but I did discover a few good deals for myself and Bella. I just could not get focused. I think I'm tetering on exhaustion.
Volunteered to help with crafts in my son's classroom yesterday. Why, Why, Why? I have no patienc! 5 years old do not listen when you tell them they do not need to use an entire bottle of paint. glue and glitter for their ornament to be "pretty"! I took candy for the kids and my son was so funny. He instructed the class that they need to, "Just go sit down and wait a minute and he would give them some candy". He also told the, "If you misbehave, I'm not going to give you a treat!" You would have thought he was the teacher. Painted ornaments with kids this week and my dining room chair and floor has the evidence to show that we really enjoyed ourselves. I'll try to post pictures. Can't find my camera at the moment. I've been taking pics with blackberry and it is not very clear.

I have not bought one Christmas present for my children. I have got to get focused and start shopping. The month of December is going to be crazy, so I'm sure I will not have a lot of extra time. Bella and I are going to Atlanta the day after Thanksgiving. I haven't informed my husband nor my son yet. I'm sure they will be bird hunting the entire weekend. They probably will not even realize we have left.
