On Mon. I saw an article about a couple different instances where parents left their kids at Chuck-E-Cheese by accident. I remember thinking I can see how that could happen when your with a big group and you think your kids is with an aunt or grandparent. But I think it is pretty ironic that this happened to me the same day I was thinking of how easily it could happen. Here's the story.

It's been a couple months since I've written anything. Camile called me today and told me she updated her blog and I should check it out. For a minutes I thought she was announcing she was pregnant with #4. But nope, her girls Carly and Ellie got their ears pierced. But I decided from her example to be better about blogging.

It's always hard to get presents for Jimmy. It seems like he just gets what he wants when he wants it & doesn't wait for a birthday or holiday. So he lacks the need for things. This year, I thought I would finally get something that he hadn't gotten for himself first. So I had heard good things about Tom Shoes. Jimmy has mentioned before that he wants some casual shoes to wear with jeans. So I went to Nordstrom's website and got some Tom's. A few days later Jimmy and I were on a date and we stopped at the mall to get a few things for Christmas. While we were there he said he wanted to stop in Journey and see if they had some casual shoes he'd been wanting. Dang! So he found a pair he wanted (some Croc canvas slip on shoes, that he said are so comfy) and ordered them in his size. That is how we work with Christmas, we shop together and get what we want and then give it to each other. So usually this would be fine but this time I wanted to get him some shoes. So I told him I had ordered him some and said we'd just take them back if this is what he wanted. When mine came in the mail, he decided he liked them and wanted them too. ( I was just going to return them) He got light colored ones and I ordered dark so I figured he could get them for his birthday in January.

So for our family Christmas card/letter this year, we are keeping it short and sweet. For those who want more details and pictures, I suggested they check out our blog. But since I just barely started blogging this last month, I have some major catching up to do. To help me stay on track and focused, I am going to use the layout of our Christmas card and expand on the tidbits of info and do a post for each.
M is for Movie maker & Artist, Kali. Kali has the creative bug. She can always be found writing stories or scripts, taking pictures, drawing, recording herself singing, or sitting with me at the computer looking through Pinterest. (an online pin board with tons of craft and home decorating ideas)
When I need advice about where to hang something or if a color looks good with a project I’m doing, I ask Kali for advice. She has a good eye for that kind of stuff.
She has a blog too that she updates every so often.
She keeps busy with jump team two days a week at school and is often found practicing on the driveway with her friend, Madi. Jump Team is a jump roping after school activity that she does with 45 other 6th graders. They get to travel to other schools and do assemblies. At the end of the school year, they have a performance for their families.
Her favorite colors are blue and green and you won't ever catch her wearing pink. (except for at Jocelyn's wedding I got her in a matching dress with her cousin, Jenna) She likes to be comfy and wears her soccer warm ups to school all the time. During warmer weather it's her soccer shorts and basketball shorts. Her other favorite thing to wear is skinny jeans- a criteria for Kali when she puts something on is it has to be comfy. She likes to play soccer during recess and during the holiday break she's been practicing jump roping in the garage so she'll be picked to be on the traveling team.
She loves noodles. She doesn't like meat very much. She likes veggies but not much fruit. Her favorite thing to drink is water and hot chocolate. She doesn't like juice but she'll have soda sometimes.
Kali enjoys being social and has lots of friends. If we were the same age I bet we'd be best friends. She likes to giggle and be silly but is also very responsible and a great babysitter. I enjoy doing projects with her- it's fun being her mom and watch her grow.
