I'm sure booderbean will sleep through it (as he should, it's midnight right!) but still...he will be with us!
I wish everyone has a very merry Christmas tomorrow! And i wish that we all remember the reason we are celebrating this season!
on a funny note...booderbean and i made a birthday cake for baby Jesus today and i didn't realize that by talking about making Him a cake it would spark funny questions. "I want to watch baby Jesus blow out candles", "i want baby Jesus to come to the party", "I want to see baby Jesus", and finally "momma sing birthday song to baby Jesus".
What a sweet and innocent boy i have!
Merry Christmas everyone!

Booderbean ate maybe 3 bites of stew, did not want a bath, then did not want to get out and would only let me touch him, then only wanted daddy to brush his teeth with him, then freaked out because i closed the door to his bedroom and didn't let him do it, then i only read 2 books and he insisted on 3, then outa nowhere he pops up from cozy rocking and runs in to the living room and demands to stay "in dare wif daddy"!!!! so i throw my hands up, military man--it's your turn! finally they both fall asleep in our bed (FABULOUS we're freaking back in "mommy daddy bed")
So i wake military man up and he takes booderbean to his own bed. Then poor poor military man gets called out at 10pm for an "emergency" at work and has to drive his tired self 30 miles away and then back! Needless to say, he was exhausted when he got home! Then 1:45am rolls around, and booderbean is up and yes...of course...he's back in our bed!!! CRAP! Where did our nice nights of sleep go???
Of course the kicking, flopping around, crazy sleepy talk, and flat out AWFUL night is back!!! Military man goes to the couch and booderbean and i sleep soundly till the morning!
UGH!!!!!!!! I'm tired, I'm frustrated, i can't get enough coffee, and I'm just plain DONE :) anyone want to trade kiddos for a few nights??

GROSS huh!!! my lips had randomly swollen to at least 5 times their normal size!!
And the really crappy part is, we have no idea why!
Talk about frustrating!!!
For those of you readers that worked with me at GELB, you may remember a few times when this happened. It sure looks like an allergic reaction to some food i ate huh? well nope! we have no clue what triggers the swollen fat face! it just appears out of nowhere! I have seen the best allergist in the state, i have had all sorts of needles poked in me, i have had all kinds of tests ran but nothing shows to be highly elevated! Military man is convinced it is something in the air.
All that i can really do is get a steroid shot and pray!
Or take a crap load of benadryl and sleep for 20 hours!
well now that we've all had a good laugh...enjoy the rest of your day!
oh and pray for me that this never happens again at an embarrassing moment...like an office Christmas party, or the time before this when i had a HUGE presentation to give in front of the college (yeah that was NO fun!!)

Wrapping paper or gift bags? oh wrapping paper for sure! i love to wrap and have even thought of doing it on the side for extra holiday cash! i have a country cowboy theme to the gift wrapping this year and i'm loving it...black, red, khaki, and red toole!!
Real tree or Artificial? artificial, if we had a real one my mom could never come visit! allergic!
When do you put up the tree? depends on our Thanksgiving plans...usually we are out of town most of the Thanksgiving holiday so as soon as we get home we get it up...this year however it just got completed this week!!!! i hate that!
Hardest person to buy for? In-Laws..hands down!
Easiest person to buy for? my sister...she's so much like me i know she'll love anything i love!
Mail or email Christmas cards? mail mail mail!!! it's the highlight of my day to come home and see the pretty cards waiting for me to open! so send them my way!
Worst gift you ever received? i really don't know....oh wait, not "worst" just "most embarrassing" was when Nana (if you know her, you know she would give something like this) gave me some peach colored lingerie!! yeah, i was 20, in college, opening that in front of everyone! haha!
Favorite Christmas Movie? i'm really into the Charlie Brown one and all those old cartoon ones, ya know the snowman one and all those.
Lights on the tree? of course, white only please
Favorite Christmas song? Little Drummer Boy
Travel at Christmas or stay home? not sure...we are still in discussion about this one. we'll probably travel still since little man is still young. but when he's older we'll stop that and see family another day. or just move to them :)
Can you name all of Santa's 9 reindeer's? sure can...only because of the song though
Angel on the tree top or a star? neither, we have a big bow streaming down it
Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning, if we ever move back to a town that has midnight mass then we'll go to that and then open stockings when we get home.
Most annoying thing about this time of year? when people get frustrated at the traffic or amounts of people, and you can see them yelling in their cars..i just want to say "you are out here too buddy!!!"
Favorite ornament theme or color? i don't think i have a favorite, i try to do a different theme every year.
What do you want for Christmas this year? to figure a few things out about our future and location and such. oh yeah--and twins sometime in my future would be fabulous!!! i think the original poster and i are thinking alike on the baby thing!

Booderbean is so funny lately...he loves to talk about Santa Clause and points him out every time he sees him (even on the Coke can of daddy's!), he loves to look at Christmas lights and i can't wait to take him to the light parks in Yukon!
NOT that we are planning or even remotely hinting at anything--but when we ask him if he wants a brother or sister for Christmas he looks at us like that is the craziest thing we could say and says in a funny voice "noooooooooooo".
But after much coaching from military man,
booderbean will tell you he needs a puppy for Christmas!
