FRED the Elf

Christopher was an elf in his school's Christmas musical. He insisted that I put 'FRED' on the front of his costume. So the 'FRED' theme continues to run through to the holidays. It was a fun show, with lots of Christmas, as opposed to holiday, spirit!! I'm so glad they can still get away with that~
Merry Christmas!!

I hated my unfinished concrete wall behind the fireplace. It was too much of a mess to just paint. With Pappy's Private Practical Patching, about $5 and a few hours later, my wall has been transformed!! Ok, so we need to work on a name for this . . . . .

We almost didn't go, but then decided after 8:30 mass to head down 55 to the flea market. Boy am I glad we did!! We scored (according to ebay) over $300 worth of collectible merchandise for $9! Of course, we aren't reselling, we just wanted it! Now don't be jealous of me and my new friend!! Who can tell me who I nabbed for $5 - only found on ebay for $99?

Christopher was excited about his new action figure carrier, and amazed when he saw what it, and all that came in it was going for on ebay - about $200. I'm just glad to have a place for all the action figures!

Same Stance, Different Team

Here is my Natalie playing in the pit of the marching band for the Lindenwood Lions. I really enjoyed the game, as the team is actually good, and moving up to Division 2. But, I could not stay for the whole game, as I promised Christopher I would take him to
Bass Pro Shop, which is right down the road!~

We had to cut down the tree right behind our house. It was dead and starting to rot. It was the tree I would see the skinks sun on, and the tree Christopher would look at out his window every morning.

It is amazing how the person cutting it down (Gary's friend Sean) can have it land just right.

It is so open in the back yard now.

Bon Voyage Galsie!

This is Galsie at her last Saturday night meal before heading off to college. Of course, crab legs and champagne were on the menu. I'm gonna miss her, but am very excited for her. If only I would have known all that she would accomplish when she was just a little 3 1/2 pounder. I would have been able to enjoy her so much more, and worry so much less! Here's to you, Gals-o-Button, o' mine!
