My daughter is the most important thing in the world to me so she’s my Valentine!!! I have a special surprise for her too. We’re going to Chuckie Cheeze for dinner. She absolutely loves that place. There is no sweeter music to a mothers ears than to hear their child laugh and say “Mommy, I sure do love you”. She made me a Valentines card in pre-school and had to give it to me this morning before I dropped her off. She couldn’t wait. I can’t wait to see her face when we pull into the parking lot and she realizes where we are.
Lady Bug and I are going to stay up late tonight to watch the ball drop. We did a fun craft and made glasses to wear that have the number 2015 in gold and silver. This is the first year that I’ve let her stay up late to celebrate with me. I got us noise makers and of course we’ll bang on pots and pans. It wouldn’t be New Years without champagne, but I got us some kid sparkling cider instead. Lady Bug will love the bubbles and toasting with her mommy.
Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year’s Eve!
Merry Christmas everyone!!! I wanted to add a little Christmas cheer to my blog quickly since I’m still awake. Santa just left our house and left a bunch of gifts under the tree for Lady Bug. I know she’ll be really excited to see what she gets when she wakes up. I saw him fill her stocking too! He placed and orange at the bottom of the stocking to fill the toe just like he did in my stocking when I was a little girl. I hope she appreciate this tradition as much as I did growing up. I loved getting goodies but always liked to have a piece of fresh fruit in my stocking.
Santa gobbled up the cookies Lady Bug made for him and he took the carrots with him for the reindeer. Lady Bug will be excited to see everything has been eaten off of her special Santa plate. I better get some sleep before she wakes up and I get no sleep at all. Merry Christmas everyone!
When I was going crazy, trying to think of stocking stuffer gift ideas for the adults in the extended family, I remembered that Cousin Steve plays the bass. So I think that the next time I’m at the mall, I’m going to make a point to buy some Bass Strings to put into his stocking! Won’t he be surprised to see something like that instead of a candy bar or an orange!
I went to a local retail store and I couldn’t believe my eyes. They had about 5 times more Christmas stuff out than they did Halloween stuff and that even includes all the candy. Why is it that it seems every year they put the Christmas stuff out earlier and earlier? I guess they’re trying to catch people while they still have a little money hoping they’ll start their Christmas shopping early.
Well I don’t get my Christmas fund money until the middle of November so I couldn’t start shopping for Christmas if I wanted to yet. You know, I could start putting stuff on layaway. What am I saying? Here I was fussing and now I’m thinking of layaway. Shame on me!!
