believe in the 12of12.......

so.....can you guess what our bonus picture is supposed to be about this month?!?!? lol!! if you are clueless as to what I am talking about.....please check out Chad Darnell's blog.....he IS the 12of12 man!!

my traditional odometer/thermostat photo. still packing on the miles!! though less than 700 this past month. probably because the boys were off school for a week. and yes....42 degrees! we have had frost on the cars most mornings......bbbrrr!!!

$3.19/gallon for gas. I checked last December's 12of12 and gas was $2.36........TOO insane!!!
Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats.....the breakfast of champions........or women who want something tasty for breakfast but are embarrassed to eat Fruit Loops in the office! lol! I actually keep a box in my cupboard and have breakfast at my desk whenever I get hungry in the morning.
today was the annual office building Christmas shin-dig! they have a caterer bring us ooodles of desserts......as seen in this photo. this year's selection was much broader (and much tastier) than previous years!! please know that I did NOT eat all of these! one of the girls in the office was out at a meeting so I grabbed enough to share with her. on the paper under the cookies is my list of what photos from each month I think I want to use for the annual recap Chad asks us to do. my intent is to post that tomorrow afternoon.
in addition to tasty treats........they hire a local high school choral to come sing. these kids have SPECTACULAR (spectacular..... no words in the vernacular can describe this great event ) voices!!! they always have the same school sing so we have watched these kids grow up (atleast 4 years of their lives.....) someday I expect to see one of them on Broadway or the Grammies!
and the latest obsession in our household......Webkinz. I hopped on a little this afternoon and earned R's bulldog, Winston, a couple hundred W (their version of money). also bought him a new outfit and a skateboard. I am SUCH a cool mom! lol!!
racing between R's afternoon bowling and his band concert, we cruised Taco Bell's drive thru for dinner. J was peeved that he was trying to order and I was trying to frame a shot. it wasn't like I could take a photo of my burrito while in a moving car! sheesh! lol!!
band concert........R is rockin' the trombone! funny since he has no rhythm! lol!
on the way home we picked up dinner, breakfast, and lunch for Stubbs.........disgusting gross live crickets! blech!!!!
aaaah! the lights on the house! I am surprised that I really like the larger bulbs. guess things go in and out of fashion. notice no big blow up penguin on the front lawn. it has been rather windy here and J hasn't put him up yet. somehow I don't think he will be up this year!
Tessa.......not a planned shot......but she was there and I had the camera! cool because I can rarely get a reasonably decent picture of her adorableness!
sniff.....sniff.......tonight was the very last episode of Pushing Daisies......though I actually believe I can see myself watching it in reruns until I had it memorized. LOVE the titles for the episodes as well......from the Pie-letter to tonight's Corpsicle. come ON!! PLEASE settle the writer's strike....I am SOOO going to miss this show! this and Ugly Betty......
and finally.....I can't believe I took a photo that includes ME in my pjs! lol!! can you see the cute little penguins on the bottoms??? this is our bathroom (obviously) and that is my adorable penguin glittery-candle night light. it comes out at Christmas.
well......sorry I don't lead a more exciting life. but, oh well! and now it is 10pm here! off to bed!

I love the big lights on the house, out of tradition those always go up. And I too love Pushing Daisys, they better get this strike figured out soon. I guess I will have to watch West Wing & Gilmore girls on dvd from the begining next month. Great pictures and Merry Christmas

Great pics! I love the big lights, too. :)

Great pics! Here in LA it was 55 (when I checked) degrees, just below my 110,000 miles and the gas was slightly higher. Love the Choral group & your kid rockin the trombone, oh, and the houselights. Good stuff.

The money is called "W" hmmmm...

Dejana said...

Oh wow, I love the lights! I can't wait to move into a house so I can decorate like that. :)

I have 7 episodes of Pushing Daisys unwatched on the TiVo because it was getting too hard to watch all the new shows. So now that the other shows are done for a while, its like I have a whole new season of shows on the TiVo.

I love the penguins in the bathroom. I'm a big penguin fan. I am intrigued about the big blow up one.

The rest of the pics are great. And if it helps you feel better fuel in the UK is currently at just under $8 a gallon.

Cute night light!! Looks like you had a super fun day!! You asked on my blog about the music, so here's what I did -- I made an account at www.projectplaylist.com. It's free and you can load songs onto your playlist and then you can get the info and add it onto your blog. It's pretty easy, I mean if I can do it anyone can!! :) Let me know if you need any help. Good luck and Happy Holidays!!!
