Santa Claus Lane

While driving home yesterday, listening to Christmas music on the radio my sweet Austin asks me a rather humorous question. "Mommy, is Santa Claus in our family?" Not sure what he is thinking I answer, "No." "Are you sure?" To which I assure him that I am positive. Little did I know that he is smarter than me with this one. You see, the song playing on the radio was "Here Comes Santa Claus"...

Okay, there are several things that are pretty much pointless that I think I am going to blog about. Not all at once, though, so don't get too excited. Some of you may be wondering, "How does she have time to blog?" (I know you are thinking about me all the time, right?) Well, I don't. But what I do have time to do is multitask. Since I have a 4 month old that likes to be fed 37 times a day, it keeps me from falling asleep (which then puts me in a horrible mood.) Also, I thought I would stop reading everyone else's (is that a word? my computer is telling me its not) blogs and blog myself. That also keeps friends and family updated that are always wanting me to email pictures of the kids. (Why is that so much harder than this?) Anyway, I forgot what I was going to say...

Oh yeah, Playlists. Do you like listening to music while reading others blogs? I usually keep the music on mute for several reasons. First, I don't want to draw any more attention to myself if I actually have a moment on the computer. If my kids hear me doing something, then I suddenly have them all in my lap frantically trying to see what could possibly be taking all my attention away from them. Second, I'll be doing something like balancing the checkbook then pretend to still be busy doing something important and I don't want Barry to know I am playing because then its his turn on the computer and my turn to do something productive.

So people sometimes have a you tube video or whatever on their blog that when I turn the volume on to listen to all I hear is John Larson going in the background because my blog is still open in another window. Its really annoying. SOOO, I think I'm going to delete my playlist. Anyone have any thoughts of their own about this? Yeah, I warned you it was going to be pointless...

We spent Thanksgiving at the lake this year with my family. My mom got all the grandkids matching jammies as an early Christmas present. This was our attempt to take a picture of them.

Check out the hair on my sweet little niece who isn't even a year yet and has already had a haircut!

Kid Quotes

Today at nap time I was putting Jacob down and saw that he had a ginormous booger. I thought I would help him out and picked it for him. He leaned forward, pointed to his nose and whispered to me, "Mommy, put it back." OK, it was hilarious at the time...
