It finally stopped!

YES!! It has finally stopped snowing, the winds are no longer blowing. I can see the house across my street. It is still bitter cold though. I can't even tell you how many times since Friday that we had to blow out our driveway. But the worst part was being stuck in the house with 2 stir crazy kids. It was too cold to go out and play and they threw fit after fit over it. I don't know if I can make it over the next two weeks with them home, add to that mix my husband is on a temporary layoff for at least three weeks. (whimper)

The Mom Song

How true is this? How many times I day do I say a lot of these things. I thinkevery mom can relate.

I'm scared.

WTF!! All the schools in my area are closed and it is not even snowing. Not a flake in sight. This is in anticipation of a storm that is susposed to be heading our way. It is big thing when schools here close due to weather after all this is Buffalo.

The schools were more concerned with not being able to get the kids home this afternoon. Not a good sign for a snow hater like me.

That Guy

One of the best commericals ever. Ed and I laughed our asses off last night when we seen it for the first time. I think that I'd rather have that guy over diamonds though.

I could just strangle my little sister

I seriously want to beat the shit out of my 13 year old sister. She is so lucky we were at a restraunt, it took all my control not to leap over the table and strangle her.

For some reason she is super jealous of Madeline to a very unhealthy level, in my opnion. Anyways my mom, step dad her, my other sister Julie and her son Joshua (9months), myself and the girls went to Swiss Chalet for dinner.

She literally pushed Madeline off the chair she was sitting on and Madeline fell on the floor. All because Kaylea didn't want Madeline sitting next to Josh. Anyways Santa was there tonight and Madeline got teary and said, "I am going to go and tell Santa that you are a mean auntie and that you hurt me!" That effing bitch of a sister told her that Santa wasn't real and she and Lilly were stupid to believe in him.

And my mom didn't say anything to her about it!

I was going to take her to a Sabres game during the school break well you can forget that! I am also thinking about not giving her the Wii game I bought her for Christmas and giving it to my girls instead.

I have reassured the girls that Santa is real and that Auntie was just being nasty because she is on the naughty list and is not getting anything this year. Madeline bought that hook line and sinker because that little bitch is always nasty to her and makes her cry all the time. The sad thing is Madeline idolizes her and it breaks my heart when my baby cries because my sister is being an asshole.

Doll is possesed

I am sure you have all seen the video or one similar of the Fisher Price Cuddle 'n Coo doll. (if not see below) I was at Target and thought that they had pulled the dolls the shelves. They had plenty of the new ones in new packaging that did not say Islam is the light. But in the back behind "fixed" dolls there one sat. I of course had to buy it just because of the so called scandal.

So I bring it home Ed and I get a good laugh over all the people out there freaking out over a doll. I heard the kids coming in, to I shoved it back in the bag and put it on the top shelf of the linen closet sensor side facing the wall. So the doll is in a bag, in a dark small confined space, no way of someone tripping the sensor to set it off. Every now and then I hear laughing and a small voice saying mama, and of course the now infamous phrase. It totally freaked me out the first time. We were in bed and it was late maybe one in the morning when I heard laughing. Of course I think it is one of my kids. I go to check on them and both are fast asleep. I thought maybe I was just dreaming the whole thing and went to bed. as soon as I laid down, yup you guessed it the laughing again. I'm losing it I thought.

Fast forward to yesterday my sister came over while the girls were at school and she helped me wrap my Christmas presents when we hear the laughing again. Only this time I heard the phrase. Julie was freaked out by it. But I have gotten used to weird things happening here now and again.

A picture is worth a thousand words

I took this photo yesterday of my girls and my nephew. I loved it so much that it is becomming part of my Christmas presents to my mom, my dad, my grandma, my sister (Josh's mom), my aunt, and one for me of course. I blew it up to 5 x 7 size I still need to get some frames for them. Kind of a cheesy gift but look at it, who wouldn't just love it? My sister and I sure do make some cute kids.

And a huge THANK YOU to my friend Wendy who took this photo that I had, (note the crabby, very unhappy and overtired Lillian)

and transformed it into this masterpiece! I now finally have a photo of the four of us where we all look pretty good in my opnion. Ahhh the magic of photoshop. Wendy again thank you and this photo is the best gift I could ever receive!

Boy do I feel old

25 years ago today Michael Jackson's Thriller was released. Where did the time go? I do admit that I do like the song and love the video.
