For Jill-- I tried to upload those pictures you've been waiting for...but after 10 minutes of waiting for it to load I x'd out of it. I have dial-up. I detest dial-up. Pictures will have to wait another week until I go back to work.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2009 is a great year for all. My new year's resolution is to start exercising. HAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA. It's a great thought.

This morning we woke up and there was about 2 inches of snow on the ground. The bad thing is that the wind has been blowing about a gazillion miles an hour. It's pretty miserable out there. I've been inside where it's warm blogging and facebooking. Tracey spent quit a while outside (surprise, surprise) and even built some snowmen. Kylee and Krysten spent a little bit of time outside, but not much. I would love to share all these pictures w/ you but my parent's 'puter doesn't recognize any external media...so now uploading of pictures. I'll do that when I get home.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone!!!

We did manage however to get the tree decorated on Sunday. The little ones were fairly helpful and didn't break any ornaments or pull down the tree so I would consider it a success.

Aaron's dad brought over some old pictures the other day and as I was going through them I came across a picture of him and had to do a double take. OMG!! Krysten looks just like him! Same curly mohawk and everything! I just knew I had to share the picture with everyone. You guess which one is which.

She missed school Friday and Monday due to a low grade fever, nothing major but it still made her feel yucky. At 5 am Tuesday Tracey woke up with a major sore throat so I took a peek in there with the flashlight and sure 'nuf...there were those tell-tale little white spots. So I took her to Urgent Care to get her going on antibiotics. (We saw the PA whom I DO NOT like, but I figured any monkey doctor could diagnose strep and give us some meds and send us on our way). Which is exactly what she did.
All was well....or so I thought. On Wednesday she wasn't any better and her tonsils were swelling rapidly. Finally she wrote me a note (since talking wasn't a pleasant experience) telling me she couldn't breathe and her tonsil felt like it was going to explode. Her tonsil had swelled so much it was touching the little thing that hangs down in the back of her throat. No wonder she couldn't breathe!! So off we go to Urgent Care--again. The PA (a different one thank goodness) was afraid that her tonsil was abscessed so they sent us the the ER.
At the ER they had to poke her 4 different times to get her IV in becuz she was so dehydrated. She was not a happy camper about that. Then we were sent for a neck CT to see if it was indeed an abscess. The results were negative thank God, becuz that would have meant a flight to Las Cruces.
So 6 hours later she was eventually released with instructions to follow up in Las Cruces with an ENT (ear, nose, throat) doctor. (the one in silver is "unavailable" meaning she's under investigaton and not allowed hospital privileges until it's over...wooooonderful). So we have an appointment next Tuesday to determine whether or not she gets to keep her tonsils.
After an emotional roller coaster ride that went from medi-vacing her out to being released that night I was completely exhausted when we got home. And guess who woke up in the middle of the night sounding sickly?...you guessed it...Kylee. I don't think I will return to work until December.

My husband is a very happy man. He was disgusted with the fact that DirecTV offers all kinds of cool stuff to new customers but not to loyal customers. So he wrote them a letter and we ended up getting a new DVR receiver for free and Showtime for free. The guy came and installed it at 7 pm Tuesday night. (After having been scheduled to be there between 8-noon). Aaron has already recorded everything in sight. He even recorded some Rachael Ray stuff for me...which was very thoughtful. And now Kylee has Dora on demand. Now I might be able to keep up with ER. The only episode I saw this season was when Dr. Pratt died..."sniff", "sniff".
Tracey is home sick today so Aaron stayed home with her and kept the little ones. He's even gonna keep them tonight while I go to a party. Kudos to him.
I am now on Facebook. That thing is like crack...it is so addicting. I joined and within 15 minutes I had 4 friends. I look forward everyday to see how many new friends I have. I am going to have to quit my job becuz I simply don't have the time to blog and facebook! OMG! I might even have to get internet on my phone to support my habit! I've got a serious addiction going on. Pretty soon you are gonna see me on that show called "Intervention" on A&E.
Have a great weekend everyone! See you on facebook!

So on the way home yesterday I told kylee that we were going to vote when we got back to Silver City.
Then she kept asking me "are we going to see fishies?" What?!?...fishies. Where on earth does she think we'll see fishies? Hello! We live in the desert.
Then it finally dawned on me after about 30 minutes that she was saying "boat" instead of "vote!" I get it now.
"No honey, no fishies, but we might see an army tank!" (Yes a tank, our new voting precinct was at the national guard armory.)
Okay, I must confess...I have an addiction. To these blasted blogs. I only follow one, but then I click around and randomly read a bunch of others. Come on people, I've got to get some work done at some point!
To my one devoted follower.... I apologize for not blogging yesterday.

Okay...about the Wilma costume... well...remind me again about being a cheapskate. I'm thinking that it might have been okay to buy my costume.
This costume saga has become a major headache. After I sewed it together last night it looked more like maternity Wilma. The dress was HUGE!!! I could still fix it if I had the time or the patience. Neither of which I have right now. So my Pebbles will go to the halloween carnival mother-less. Well, maybe Wilma-less anyway.
Not only was it about 6 sizes too big (blasted pattern sizing), but it had chocolate ice cream spots all over it. The little girls had chocolate ice cream cones last night and Krysten ended up standing on the table. Since I am not lucky enough to have my own sewing room, I improvise...the kitchen table. Yes, the same table my melted ice cream cone-bearing child was standing on. There was ice cream all over everything!!! There's always next year, right?
There is a halloween carnival here at school so Tracey wore her costume to school. I just took some pictures of her in the hallway. She refused to smile since there were other people around. I guess your mom taking your picture at school is embarassing enough, but to smile while she's doing it...that's just too much to bear.

I had a great picture over the weekend of Krysten holding the cat in another choke hold, but of course I forgot the camera at home. So that picture will have to wait until another day. I will say however, that I've managed to finish the kids' halloween costumes (hence why no laundry was done over the weekend) and Kylee has decided to be Pebbles, cuz she's all about wearing a bone in her hair. Now my costume on the other hand...well, we'll see if I can get it done by Friday.
Thank you to all of you who have been reading my blog....it makes me feel so loved. Bookmark me and keep coming back....we love having visitors!!!

We came home thru Quemado and met Grama Maggie and Papa Rick for lunch. We also got to hang out and visit with various other family, including those visiting from Washington, so that was good to see them.
I would like to note here that I am not responsible for Grama Lucy's actions. She tried on Tracey's heely's (only one shoe thank goodness) and actually got up and tried to wheel around the kitchen. I thought for sure that we were gonna have to call the ambulance. Senior citizens were not meant to have wheels on their feet!!! Don't blame me when Grama breaks a hip!

Meanwhile, Debra and Tracey have been hanging out and she showed Tracey how to make a bead necklace.
Keep your fingers crossed for good weather tomorrow morning...it's the last day of the Balloon Fiesta!!!

On a note about Halloween....I had planned for Kylee and Krysten to be Pebbles and Bam Bam, however....Kylee wants to be Bam Bam because he's a boy, (he also has white hair not red) so we'll see how that works out. We might have a mixed up Pebbles and Bam Bam for Halloween. I will definitely post pictures of the girls.
Hasta la Pasta!!
