Well we're actually cold here11:21 AM
in Arizona. It's 55º and we're all bundled up and complaining that it's chilly....it's pretty funny considering that just a few months ago I was in the negative degrees in the middle of a snow storm and would have welcomed these temperatures. Makes me wonder "Are we ever happy?" LOL
I have a little story to tell you, do you want to learn some french? Because I just found out this morning that Nicholas, who is only 4 years old, apparently knows how to speak French....listen to this. I am getting breakfast ready and Nicholas turns to me and says:
Nicholas - Mommy can you whip me up something to drink?
Me - What? What did you say?
Nicholas - Whip me up something to drink please!
Me - Ok but where did you learn "whip me up a drink"? *laughing at this point*
Nicholas - It's french for "get me something to drink"....didn't you know that? Whip me up....listen to it....whip me up, it's french see?
Me - Uhh...ok *laughing hysterically at this point*
Hahahahahahahah So there ya go, who said you can't learn a foreign language from a 4 year old?
Can you believe that it's almost Christmas??? I feel it in the air, everyone is rushing and you don't really see a single person without a shopping bag in their hands with some sort of gift or wrapping paper or something christmasy.....
I'm scrambling to finish the ornaments and Jasmine's doll, but I've been so busy lately, there's just so much going on, it's crazy.
On friday Jasmine's school is doing a Christmas Concert, they're singing holiday songs and she's also one of the dancers, they're doing some sort of 60's dance to one of the songs. She was all for it but as the day nears, she's getting extremely nervous, just wait until she realizes that I'm taking pictures AND filming to put on the blog LOL
What?!?!? I can't just go to the concert and NOT share it with all my family and friends here can I? That's just no acceptable!
Then this weekend I have some last minute gifts to buy for Curt and the kids, plus I have to get all the stuff for the Gift Baskets I'm doing for them. I'm also going to be making "The Pioneer Woman's" cinnamon rolls to send to Curt's work for the airmen.
On the 23rd, we have a surprise for the kids. Here on base, they are having this Christmas feature, we pay $5 for each kid and we give them one of the gifts for each......then get this....at around 4pm there's a knock on the door and it's Santa Claus delivering a gift for them. I can NOT wait to see their faces LOL
You know I'll have the camera ready and waiting right???? Poor kids, sometimes I feel so bad for them because every little thing they do is getting snapped and shared on the blog.....only....I don't feel too bad because it's for family and friends!
The kids have written their Santa Letters and I just have to share with you because I love what they write. There's something about little letters to Santa, with all their extravagant requests, mispelled words and adorable decorations, that just melt my heart.
I have to say though, you can tell Jasmine is 8 years old, just look at some of her requests LOL
Uhhh yeah, first off Butterscotch Pony is almost $300, then the Ipod and camera.....*snicker*
I love that he has requested for Scooby doo underwear LOL Just gotta love these kids!
Right now I'm about to go work on my sewing projects so that I can get them out of the way ASAP.
I hope you're all having a wonderful Tuesday and staying warm. Here's what's happening in my house today:

Like Father, Like Santa - 1pm on Lifetime (Harry Hamlin plays a ruthless toy tycoon who travels to the North Pole in a plot to crush his competitors---possibly destroying Christmas in the process.)

House *Merry Little Christmas* - 8pm on Fox
I have to tell you about last night's dinner, I tried "The Pioneer Woman's" Best Lasagna Ever and OH.MY.GOODNESS.....she was not lying. I just posted the recipe on my blog this morning too but I can't even begin to tell you just how delicious it was, as a matter of fact, I've thrown out all my other lasagna recipes because this will be the only I'll ever use.
Tonight's dinner is Garlic Herb Fish Fillets with some rice and veggies.
