Work Christmas Card

My partner in crime at work and I always get Christmas Cards made for our co-workers or just random people in our building. It started out as a joke four years ago and's still kind of a joke. We pick a different place in the building each year, make up the cards and send them out to unsuspecting victims. We only print out 10 of them so they could be considered a collectors item....yeah, they really aren't. It's just something fun to do. This is our picture from this year's card. Cheers!

No one says it better than Linus...

This time of year tends to get a little crazy. There are millions of things that need to be done before the 25th and if your anything like me you have your list that your frantically trying to cross off before you run out of time. It's pretty easy to be distracted from the true meaning of Christmas, so I thought I'd post a little something to help us refocus on what this wonderful time of year is really all about.

Merry Christmas.

Don't worry, it's just chocolate.....or is it?

Friday's are one of my favorite days, one, because I don't have to go to work and, two, because it's Dance Dance Revolution day at Annette's house after we go to the gym. It's our little reward for going to the gym all week and heck, we just really like to play DDR! So last Friday, after DDR, Annette and I were sitting talking, while her cute little kids were running around when all of the sudden Annette notices a blob of brown stuff on the computer desk. It looked pretty suspiciously like poop to me so I wasn't going anywhere near it.
Good ol' Net is a lot tougher then me, because she swipes it off the desk with her finger, smells it and says, "Oh good, it's only chocolate." Now not being a mother myself, I'm not quite used to having to tell the difference between chocolate and poop but one thing is for sure. You couldn't pay me $1000 to stick my finger in a brown blob of something that looks like poop and then smell it. I was torn between laughing my head off and dry heaving! Annette, you are the WOMAN!!! All I know is that if mother's actually received a salary for taking care of kids you deserve HAZMAT pay or at least a HUGE bonus for going above and beyond the call of duty....or should I say doodie! Hee Hee! Tell the "Burly Man" you need a raise!

Thanksgiving fun!

I'm almost recovered from the virus from HELL and I'm back to work! Good times! I thought I'd finally post some pictures from Thanksgiving. My whole family made it up and we had a great time! My sister brought over her Wii and we are totally addicted to it! We also made it down to check out the lights at Temple Square and they were beautiful! Of all crazy things, we actually ran into my uncle's family there that we don't get to see very much so we took a picture to document us seeing each other. We had a wonderful time and I wish it could have lasted longer.

Here is my 1 1/2 yr old niece playing Wii ski jump. She was awesome! And above my 3 1/2 yr old niece and I are catching up on our Dr Seuss reading. He rocks!

We have a tradition of making "Olive Fingers" with the olive's every year so here's the tradition being passed down to the next generation.

Here's the picture with my Uncle and his family. It was really good to see them!

Little legs get tired walking around so I got to give a fun piggy back ride. I love that little kid!

My family minus one big brother. He was the first to go home and missed the lights. Hopefully next year we'll get him in the picture. We missed having him there.

Ugh, I'm sick!

The down side: My body aches, my nose is raw from blowing it and my throat feels like it's on fire!

The up side: I got to stay home from work for 3 days! Granted, that time was spent passed out in my bed, sneezing and coughing with snot running down my face, but I was at home, not work. Yipee! Also wonderful friends like my friend Annette make you homemade chicken noodle soup, that tastes like ambrosia and bring you over a huge steaming bowl. How wonderful is that! And to top it off, she even figures out how may weight watchers points it is for me! She is going to heaven for that!
