Wine and Roses QPs

I have had these sitting around for quite a while, and life has finally slowed down enough for me to post them.
Anyways, I have made 2 QPs for you using Rachael Hudnall's Wine and Roses page kit, which I would like to add is absolutely gorgeous.

Out of the mouth of Jade

I just have 2 quick stories about Jade. She has been cracking me up today.
She noticed the little Christmas tree was gone, and asked where it went. I told her Nana took it. She asked if Nana couldn't go cut down a big tree. I told her that Nana likes to have a little tree. She replied, "Is that so the presents look bigger?".
I was driving her to her friends house. "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas" came on the radio. She made me turn it up so she could sing along. All of the sudden she stops singing and proudly exclaims, "I should be on the radio!!"
That's all.

Now that's thinking

I was reading Caibo a story. All of the sudden he made me stop. He took the book and sat it on the floor. Then he began trying to jump into the book (somebody watches too many cartoons). First he just tried jumping in. When that didn't work he said, "Darn it!!" and tried to Skidoo into the book. He also tried jumping higher, jumping backwards, and spinning around before he jumped in. Finally, he said "I know! I need a pogo stick". We don't have a pogo stick, but I have to give the kid credit. That's thinkin.

New Products

I finally have a new product for my store. You know the one I mentioned like 2 weeks ago. Yes, life has been crazy busy.

And because I like you here is some free word art...

My internet dependancy

Friday night there was an internet outage in my area, and for whatever reason I ended up with no internet until today. Now, 5 days isn't really that horrible. I mean people can go for weeks without the internet after a natural disaster. For me, 5 days was just enough to learn how dependant I am on the internet. I wasn't able to put any new products in my store. I didn't know what anyone was doing. I had no idea how much money I had in the bank. The worst of all was my house payment. I always pay it online. This time I had to make a phone call. I had to wait for the stupid automated system which told me it would cost me $15 dollars to make the payment over the phone. I waded my way through all the menus just to get directed to a customer service representative (because I have never paid over the phone). The first thing the customer service rep told me is that it would cost $20 to make a payment over the phone. Normally, I am a very nice person, but I had had enough, and I was not very nice to the poor dude. It worked. He only made me pay $15 to make my payment over the phone. Although I was not completely thrilled. I'll accept $15. It is much better than a late mortgage.

The anti Santa

Ok, I totally feel like I have let down all my readers who read this just to see what me and the kids are up. (I like to pretend that are like 5 or 6 of you.) I know I have been slacking, but life has been crazy.
Anyways, here are a few pictures of the ward Christmas party. Mostly I had pictures of Caibo because Jade wanted to sit with her friends instead of us. I guess we are not cool anymore, but I don't feel too bad. She wasn't the only one. Poor Albrights had pretty much all the 5 and 6 year olds sitting with them.

It turns out that Caibo isn't the biggest fan a Santa. He has better things to do like eat. I know. I'm shocked, too. Usually we can't get the kid to stop and eat. The only way we convinced him to get close to Santa was because he wanted the candy cane. The candy cane thing doesn't surprise me too much.

When we finally got him near Santa this was as close as he would get. He wouldn't sit on his lap. Yes, I'm shocked about this too. After all, Caibo has been known to poke random strangers and say "Excuse me sir. My names is Caibo"
This is way off subject, but the other day we were driving somewhere and out of the blue Caibo asked me what my name was. I told him and then asked him what his name is. He responded, "My names is Caibo, but my dad calls me dude and I say sweet totally."
Anyways, back on subject. They gathered all the primary kids on the stage to sing Silent night and Away in a manger. I used to whine about how small our primary is, but looking at this picture I take it back.
Most of the kids didn't sing. The kids in my primary class claim that they were distracted by Caibo being weird. You can't see it in this picture, but he was crawling around pretending to be a cow or horse or something like that. Yep, that's my Caibo.

Just because it made me laugh

Poor Caibo is the only person at our house that gets up in the morning anymore. Usually he gets up turns on his own movie, hangs out for a while, brings me a gallon of milk or juice and his bucca, and eventually gets bored and tells me "Mom! Get up! It's morning outside!" I guess I didn't respond correctly this morning because he gave up and went to wake Jade up. Their conversation went like this:
"Jade, get up! It's morning outside."
Jade pretty much growled at him.
"Jade! Get up!!"
"I don't want to get up"
"Jade! It's morning outside"
"but I'm tired I don't want to get up"
At that point he gave up, and I am very glad I didn't want to get up either.
