My Chiefs made it to the playoffs! WooHoo!!!
I'm a happy person today!
The Chiefs and the Seahawks both play on Saturday in game 1. We'll see if they can make it to the 2nd game.
My mom called me and said that one of my cousin's got married and they will be in town tomorrow. He lives in Chicago, I think. That's where he was last time I saw him anyway. His sister and her husband will also be here and we haven't seen them for a year or so either. They are actually children of a first cousin of mine. We're all going to meet for dinner to visit and congratulate them. It should be fun to see everyone again.
I think we're heading down to Hermiston tomorrow also to pick up a couple of dressers for the boys. There's a place that has some really nice handmade ones for cheap. It's only a 25 mile drive, so it's not very far.
Well, Everyone, have a wonderful New Year's Night!
2007 is almost here and it might already be here if you're out of the U.S. today.

We had a wonderful Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve at my folk's house with all of my side of the family. Everyone had a wonderful time and got spoiled rotten.
Christmas morning we were up early and opened our gifts. We were all spoiled rotten too. Mike was very surprised to open his NFL jersey and the Nascar items we got for him. The boys were shocked to get some new duck decoys and they each got a new shotgun for bird hunting. They just can't wait to use them this weekend. I got some new clothes, boots, a new car, and a crochet book I wanted. I'll try to post pictures this weekend.
I've been sick this week and with starting the new job and selling so many pillows this month, I'm really behind with things. For those of you that normally receive a Christmas card....., they will be in the mail by Monday. I'm sorry they are so late. I hope you all understand.
Love to you all!

I've made it through my first week at the new job. WooHoo!! That first week is always the worst. I think things are starting to make sense. I found out that I went to school with my supervisor but didn't know her in school. She was a year ahead of me. We do have mutual friends though. It's such a small town.
I'm really behind on my Christmas cards, folks. I've been selling boobie pillows like crazy and finally had to cut everyone off until after Christmas. I'm taking orders, but not shipping until the following week.
I've also got to work on getting flyers out for the archery club this week. I'm going to try to get the labels printed and have the flyers copied today. Mike and the boys can do the folding, stamping and mailing this week for me.
The boys and I sat down yesterday and ordered some things for Mike. He will be really surprised with what he's getting. We still have to go to finish our shopping for the boys though. We'll go 1 or 2 nights after work to do that. I hate shopping on the weekends! It's way too crazy this time of year, especially.
It's gotten cold here again! Down to 20 during the night. We might even have snow this week. That would be wierd, actually having snow on Christmas. I'm so hoping that Spring will be here sooner, since we're having such cold weather this early in the season. Keep a good thought on that, okay?
The kids are out of school for winter break on Wed. morning. I'm sure they are looking forward to it, plus having Mike and I at work. They'll get some time to themselves. I think I'll have to stock up on food, because all their friends seem to appear during these times too.
Well, that's about it for my week. Maybe I'll even get to post on here during the week this time.
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!
Stay safe, warm and happy!

I've gone and got me a new job. I start on Monday. It's at Head Start in the finance office. I'm a little excited to get the first day over. I'll be working 30 hours a week and in the summer they close for 8 weeks. The hours are wonderful. Andy does a lot of sports and I'll still be able to make his games.
The bazaar was a little slow last weekend. There just wasn't a lot of foot traffic. I did sell a few things and took orders for some too. I've sold quite a bit on-line. It's keeping me really busy! I enjoy it though or I wouldn't do what I do.
Mike and the boys are out bird hunting this morning. It's way too cold for me. We're supposed to get freezing rain today. I'd like to go to a couple bazaars, but I'm not sure I want to chance getting stuck in the weather.
There's really not much more to say today, but it's early yet.
Have a wonderful weekend all!
