My oldest affectionately (I hope!!) named me that, and I figured it was only appropriate - for both me...and this blog ;o)

Too long...

With the chaos of the holidays, I neglected my blogging duties (along with a few other duties).'s my attempt to catch up =)

Our Christmas break was completely full of family, friends, fun, and gifts...Lana and Garrett's birthday parties, numerous sleepovers, Nana coming to visit, 3am bedtimes, and oh yea...there was the actual Christmas celebrations. The kids were most excited about their main present. They finally have their own cell phones!!! And believe me, they have been put to good use - LOL. They were also able to extend the spirit of receiving with their numerous gift cards. I think we shopped for 2 weeks straight! Robbie is now the proud owner of a Blackberry (which he still learning to use =), and I am still the proud owner of a Great Dane.

I think this year was the best Christmas really is exciting and fun as the kids get older and older. Check out the memories from the last few weeks.
