Not Me Monday


Hello, well it is that time of the week again...go here to check out more blogs who take part in this fun little confession time...
So...here we go.
I did not allow my children to eact waffles for dinner last night.
I did not take my children to TRU to spend thier remaining Christmas money on Pet Shop Toys.
I am not looking forward to my daughter starting school again today.
I did not join the ranks of others in starting a new "Diet" program at the beginning of the new year...and did not contemplate quitting the day after I started.
I did not go out and buy my girls all new snow clothes for our 1 da snow trip next weekend.
I did not spend all of my Christmas money at one store on Saturday. And did not enjoy wearing my new jacket on my 26 degree morning run yesterday.
Well those all are the things that I did not do last week...Happy Monday!

Christmas Trees and Santa's Reindeer...













Even Emma fed them.....

Feeding the Reindeer..

My little Reindeers....



So we usually get our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, but this year we decided to wait a couple of weeks because it had been so dry.

Our tradition to get our tree at Johnson's Farm but they were sold out the week before we wanted to get the tree, so we headed up to Crest Ranch with some friends. It was cold, rainy and did I mention FREEZING? I think our car said 39 degrees.

It made for the quickest tree hunt we have ever had.

A couple of weeks later we started a new tradition for our family..we went to Mt. Madonna to feed Santa's Reindeer. Sarah has been a Reindeer fanatic this year, so this was a hit for her. A couple of families from our Bible Study came along for the rainy feeding, but it was a blast to watch the kids feed the deer.


Oh, did I mention our internet has been down for almost 2 weeks now? I have been hijaking another wireless from our neighborhood.., and of course in the middle of this post, has decided not to let me upload any more pictures...so I will see how far this post gets...
