So today I decided to put up my christmas decorations. I hung the wreaths outside on the house. I was going to start the lights, but then thought it wouldn't be such a good idea. My neighbors would probably think I was crazy. (being 5 months pregnant and all!)

I got the inside decorations done, with the exception of the tree. I am thinking, and really hating the idea, of doing a fake tree this year. 

We will be in LA for Christmas this year. I just don't want to have to take the tree down before we go, or risk leaving it up. I know, I know.... if it's unplugged it's not a big deal. But, it will be so dead by the time we get back it will be a pain to do it then.

We LOVE Christmas time. I love the decorating, the music, the meaning. It is truely a magical time of year.

One of my boys favorite past times is drawing on computer paper. They love to create their own masterpieces. They then cut them out, and hang them on their walls, the fridge, or any other wall that has room. Yesterday Kamdan drew a picture of me.

I don't know why I am frowning, then again everything they draw seem to be sad. Maybe that is a super hero thing. (that is usually what they draw.)

I have a moment.....

Wow, it is busy, busy, busy here for us. Life gives no option for slowing down!
I just got back from a wonderful trip to Washington (state) visiting my BFF and her family. It was colder than I am used to, but a lot of fun! 
I looked at some apartments while there, and got some info on some rental homes.

anxiously awaiting our food!
Best Thai salad EVER!! (at The Rock)
I have been accepted for a pell grant (yah!), so I will be starting school January 4, 2009. I am going to be starting my generals, and go from there.
I am now 13 weeks along, and I seem to be getting some energy back. I am really looking forward to this pregnancy being done! It is a lot harder the older you are & with having other kids to deal with. No sleep for the weary.........

Dan is looking for a night job, to get us through the winter months. Darn cold, short days!! He is also going to start teaching guitar. 
The guitar lessons is something that he will continue to do in Washington. They are in need of some teachers there. Ellen's daughters piano teacher said that there were only a few teachers there, and that they are in need of some more. That was nice to find out!
