reindeer and elf spotted...and not me monday

i DID NOT get all fuzzy and warm and even giggle when i say these north pole helpers come home from school in their garb.

i DID NOT laugh a little out loud when hubs car was covered in ice and he had to scrape it bc he hasn't cleaned up the garage to park his car inside.

i DID NOT get a note from jk's school saying i had to bake "home made cookies" for her christmas party. i also DID NOT make slice and bake peanut butter cookies and plop a hershey kiss on top and call them "home made".

when brooke asked how santa sees and hears everything, i DID NOT cock my head like a puppy dog staring at a treat and say, "how do you think he does?"

i DID NOT lay down for a short nap when my parents came over and sleep almost 3 hours!

when sofia kept putting everything in her mouth and her mouth on everything, i DID NOT laugh when b suggested putting tape on her lips so she can't open her mouth.

i DID NOT feed my kids popcorn for dinner after the fam christmas party. we ate so much and so long that we weren't hungry...but i still would never just feed them popcorn. nope. wouldn't do it!

i DID NOT get all warm and fuzzy inside when i saw the note paige left me on friday morning on the counter. i DID NOT get a little proud peak thinking that she is so thoughtful and honest and concerned...and then i DID NOT pray and thank the Lord for such a wonderful daughter.

i DID NOT laugh my butt off at ryan and our friend, johny, when they were talking and feeding sofie together like a little couple. (maybe you had to be there, but it was hysterical)

i DID NOT feel a loss when we were at our family christmas party and for the first time my grandpa {pop} was not.

you know the drill...click the button...all the cool kids are def doing it!

I love the helpers, the note, and the men caring for the baby. But you should have no guilt over the homemade cookies. They were made at home, were they not?

Cammie said...

Can you tell me how you did NOT make those "home made" cookies? Why didn't the kisses melt?

And popcorn for dinner is THE BEST! What? You didn't know?!

So glad to hear you did NOT take a nap, otherwise I would be SO jealous! ;o) Hope you have a FAB Christmas girlfriend because you and your sweet family certainly deserve it. {{{HUGS}}}

Thank you for stopping by my blog! I LOVE yours!!!

All of the pictures are precious. Especially the one of the guys, cheesing it up with the baby!

PS -- I've fed my kiddos popcorn a few times for dinner. Now with Baby Boo, I tried to give her popcorn and she took it out of her mouth, handed it to me and said, "Tash" (Trash). So much for feeding her popcorn for dinner.

Wonderful Not Me's. The guys look like they're having so much fun feeding the baby.

Rebecca Jo said...

I had to double take - I thought it was a happy couple feeding Sofie!!!!

And that's the only way I make those cookies - & you know what - you have to turn on the oven to do it - homemade enough!

Meredith said...

LOVE that Ryan did NOT look like he was the other half of a couple NOT involving you. I didn't even have to be there!

Kimmy said...

Hope you had a great weekend! I just wanted to let you know I passed an award your way. :o)

Great NOT Me's. I must say that your children are so cute and I enjoy reading about them. Kinda of makes my bio clock tick even louder.

Kel said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful time 'not' doing all those things.

Love the pics of the girls - so cute!

Impressive they wanted you to MAKE cookies...seems now days you have to BUY all the snacks for school. A darn shame, really.

Love the pics of the two guys feeding baby. I can visualize it now. :-)
