Another year closing in

So what were your favorite memories of 2008? I just cannot believe 2008 is almost over already! It seems like it just started! My boys are growing like crazy, and I can't believe we will be parents to 5 kids in the next 4 to 5 months!

Are you all ready for Christmas? What else do you have left to do? I don't have much left which feels good :) Waiting on hubby to get home to help me finish up the last little bits :)

Newest little monkey

The newest addition is either extremely stubborn or just shy LOL We had our big ultrasound yesterday and no gender shots :( This one would NOT show! It was jumping a little, curling it's toes for us, waved several times, and opened it's mouth really wide like it was yelling, but refused to show. Baby is now 1/2 a lb and 9.8cm from crown to rump which they said is perfect (53% for this stage).

It's the most, wonderful time of the year!

Daddy is coming home Friday, Christmas is just 9 sleeps away, and my kids are VERY excited! :) We're having the wonderful ice/snow this week, but it's all good :) I'm just about finished with my christmas shopping, I'm waiting to wrap until hubby comes home (He's gotta do SOME of it, right? LOL), and I'm having a great week :)

Christmas goodies

What is your favorite Christmas treat recipe? I love baking during the holidays. I usually make a few different kinds of cookies, fudge, and brownies.
One of my favorites is the fudge, and it's incredibly easy too! 1 bag of chips (peanut butter, chocolate, etc), and 1 tub of frosting any flavor. You can come up with some amazing creations when you melt it together! My favorite is either peanut butter with chocolate frosting for PB/Choc fudge, or the Peanut butter chips with vanilla frosting for PB fudge.
Care to share your favorites?

Our Santa pic :)

I took the boys to see Santa today. It didn't phase Max at all LOL He was content just to sit there but refused to smile. Cody just giggled anytime Santa talked to him. He couldn't even answer LOL Kasy and Alex were anxious to tell him what they wanted. I think the pic turned out pretty cute :)

I'm also adding a few I took last night :) The top one is for our Christmas card this year.

Fingerprint Friday!

Fingerprint Friday

There is a song by Steven Curtis Chapman that says:
I can see the fingerprints of god
When I look at you
I can see the fingerprints of god
And I know its true
Youre a masterpiece
That all creation quietly applauds
And you're covered with the fingerprints of god

So look around you and see where YOU can see God's fingerprints. Is it in nature? Kids? Animals? Where do you see them? Here's how to join in.

1. Blog with your interpretation of God's fingerprints. Be sure to link back to PamperingBeki so others can find the entire list of participants!
2. After you've posted your blog, sign the Mr. Linky on Beki's page! Have fun exploring the other links as well!
Please only sign in if you're participating and sharing pics. Hopefully this will make us look at things through fresh eyes throughout the week!

I'm blogging nature this week. It is so amazing to me to see the flowers bloom. Then as winter approaches, the leaves change colors, snow falls, ice sets in, and everything transforms. I love the different seasons, but I do miss the flowers during the winter!

Oh Christmas Tree....

When does your tree go up? We are putting ours up Friday at my oldest sons request ( I would have done it now LOL). He wants to do it Friday so we have more time to decorate it. They won't have early bedtime since there won't be school the next day.
I think we're going to make a fun night out of it and maybe make pizzas, put on a christmas movie, and just have fun.
What is your tradition?

Deals, Deals and more Deals

So how did everyone do with the recent sales hitting the stores? I'll be honest and say that I don't think they were nearly as good this year as the past years on black friday! I think the stores could have done A LOT better, especially with the recession going on. If they wanted more sales, they should have given better deals!
I went to Best Buy with my FIL on Black Friday and it was a lot of fun :) We were two of the crazy ones who left at 3:30am LOL But the experience is what I love, even if I don't buy anything! I then took my two little ones around to the mall and Toys R Us at noon.
