A little bit of everything


So this is the Christmas tree. Not very exciting. It's not a matchy, matchy Christmas tree. Just a big conglomeration {is that a word?} of all sorts of things {most of which is hung at 3 feet or below thanks to the girls}. We have a teletubby, Blue from blue's clues, a dressed up Iowa corncob, a dressed up rifle shell to remind us of Idaho =) {thanks Tracy in ID!}, some antiquish ones from Kent's childhood {hee, hee}, basketball, a doctor lady, ballet shoes, a beenie baby duck, fancy glittery ones that Bella picked out, etc. etc. It is so fun to watch Emma with all of the Christmas stuff...it is all so new to her. She is so excited. She loves the lights on all the houses...she yells "look at that house" at every house we pass. She was quite excited to find out that Santa might bring her a present. She wants a drum and today she added a harmonica to her list. Don't know what her obsession with musical instruments is {she got a "tar" [guitar] for her potty training efforts which by the way is going wonderfully}.

Anyway, I made another layout tonight, but was just too lazy to scan it...what a pain in the butt. Maybe tomorrow. So instead I will do something else. Saw someone else who did this so I will add my list. So I made a list of 20 things I like to do. It is so easy for me to think of things I dislike....so I thought I should try to think positively and think of things I like. Here are the 1st 20 things that popped into my head.

20 things I like to do {some of which I don't get to do very often}. By me.
1. Reading magazines
2. Going to the beach
3. Scrapbooking (huh?)
4. Surfing the web
5. Shopping
6. Sleeping in {one of the ones I don't get to do}
7. Spending the day with my girls
8. Watching Letterman
9. Hiking
10. Lifting weights {did I just say that?}
11. Trying new recipes
12. Sitting in my yard {summer only}
13. Going to bookstores
14. Traveling {seeing new things minus the driving....I dislike that very much}
15. Blogging =)
16. Seeing new babies in the clinic
17. Gardening {pulling weeds is therapeutic...try it sometime}
18. Eating Mexican food
19. Taking pictures
20. Hanging out with family {even my sister}

There it is...pretty exciting huh? Have a good day.

Very pretty tree. I like your list. The traveling part confuses me though....since I can't even get you to go over 10 miles. The traveling part and seeing the screnery part is the best part really. Though I do remember a little girl who hated the traveling part even years ago. Her nose was always in a book.

If traveling is so great....why is it so hard to make you come here? I've been there MUCH more than you have been here =).

cld said...

That is why I don't go there....because you are always HERE! :) Very logical, huh?

I'm glad to see that I made the list (though it is number 20). Speaking of traveling, when are you going to travel to my house and see it?

Glad to see that I made the list (though it is number 20). Speaking of traveling, when are you going to travel out to my house and see it? It's not like I live that far away...
