Another day with a long to do list and here I am wasting my life away on the internet again.
Lets see, I've got to finish my christmas shopping (some people in my family are so hard to buy for), make a few calls, apply for a job, go to the library, go to costco and print off pics, go to the bank, clean alittle, order ink, balance my checkbook (i always get so far behind...) and I know there's more.... I need to look at my white board.
I can't beleive it's less than a week 'til christmas! Wow it came so fast this year. I miss the days when I was little and every day until Christmas went agonizingly slow and me and Emily would sit next to the tree feeling our presents and begging our Dad for clue to what they were. Oh those were the days.
Last night Elainas dad brought over her christmas present, Hokey Pokey Elmo. Who knew something could be so adoreable? He actually puts his hand and feet in and turns around and when he gets knocked over (which he inevitably does since Elaina is only 11 months and doesn't quite get it yet) he says "oopsy I fell down, can you help me up?" So cute, at least for now, I see how it can get annoying sometime soon.
So I got tagged and here's my list (and by the way I'm tagging anyone who reads this :) )
