My baby turned 12 today.

I can't believe you are twelve today.  Where has the time gone.  I would post some wonderful pictures of you, but I am lazy and I am sitting on the couch with my shiny new laptop and the pictures are on the desk top.  

You are.........






First born.



And then a LOT more.

We had a very relaxed and laid back Birthday.  B had an eye doctor appointment this morning.  All is still good.  No glasses, check back in a year.

We went bowling, where I kicked your butt.  169 & 148.  I think you bowled a 68 that last game.  We ate cheese curds, onion rings, mushrooms and french fries.  What a waste of my hour on the treadmill this morning.  But you are worth it. 

The rest of Christmas break has been wonderful as well.   I have read two books and we completed two puzzles, both of which were missing pieces.  Mmmmm I wonder who could have been responsible for that.  Could it be one of those critters that took all the ornaments off the Christmas tree.

I wish there were still 32 shopping days until Christmas

Not because I have shopping to do, I am just about finished.  I have just have a ton of stuff to do.  We are having several out of town guests, although we are not sure just when.

Exercise has gotten painful.

Pounds are coming off.

Cards were made and mailed.

Baking isn't started.

Basement is looking better.

Kids are busy.

The presents are purchased and hidden.

TV is calling my name to watch Glee!!!!!!!
