Sunday sunday (bah bah bah duh duh duh) so good to me...

So today, or technically I suppose it was yesterday, was alright. I did not want to get up out of bed to go to church, but Mitch would've been sad if I had skipped, so I managed to get up at 10:10. We're supposed to leave home at 10 to make it ontime. So I threw on some clothes, pulled my hair in ponytail, painted my face to make myself look alive and went. It was a typical service, we butchered some hymns and listened to dad, then after the service I went to choir practice. I'm only joining for Christmas. Love me some Christmas music. It was hillarious watching all the adults not listen to the director and not know their parts. It made me think of choir at school and all the fun Bri and I had together.

After choir Mitch and I met up with mom and dad and alex and a whole bunch of old people from church at a crappy little greasy diner called Golden Gate. Words cannot describe, but it's fun going to hang out with the old folks, they're a riot.

We got home after lunch and we all went to lay down for while. I was so tired, but I played on the computer for a bit and then watched an episode of Private Practice, which I'm addicted to. Then I slept for about an hour. You see, lately Mitchell has been thrashing around in his sleep and I haven't been able to sleep. For like a week. But I got a nap in today and hopefully I'll get to sleep in tomorow, or rather today... Anyway.

When I woke up it was time to start hauling up Christmas decor from downstairs, including the giant 9 foot Christmas tree for the living room. We got the tree up and decorated, then dad went out and got some Chinese food. Yum, love me some sweet and sour chicken. After dinner I pretty much just sat around on my bootey all evening until Alex's bath time. I gave him his bath, then it was play time for a bit more, then we shipped him off to bed. Then I sat around on my bootey some more.

Now everyone else is in bed asleep and I'm sitting here in the chair with Avery sitting on the arm beside me purring, and we're staring at the giant Christmas tree. I figure since it's almost 1am I should go sleep, but I'll just get abused by some super long arms and legs thrashing about. So I'll sit here awhile longer. Maybe watch another episode, see what Addison's up to. Even though I've already seen every single episode. Oh well.

I've been buying Mitchell stuff off of ebay. I've been spending way too much money, but I want him to have a good Christmas, he deserves it. I'll try to be good though from now on... We'll see.

Alex and I were playing with the Webcam. I love him very much. :-)

More Pics for Bri

Mom got a new laptop complete with a webcam with fun effects. Kelly was over and we had a bit of fun with it...

Pictures for my Bri

Kelly took me to a Red Wings game on November 11th for an early Birthday present. This is us on the people mover in downtown Detroit. We had a ton of fun, even though our boys in Red lost. We went to Cheli's Chili Bar, Hockeytown Cafe, and walked all over. It was a blast.


So Thursday was Thanksgiving, and boy did we eat. Mitchell, Alex and I went with my mom and dad in law, my mom in laws mom and dad, and my sister in law to a friend of theirs for Turkey Day. It was a lot of fun. Grandma and mom did most of the cooking, and it was FABULOUS! So so yummy. There was Turkey and mashed tatoes and green bean casserole (which I don't eat because I find it gross) and salad and rolls and stuffing and green fluffy stuff and muffins and homemade donuts and pumpkin pie and rice krispie treats and some kind of fruit pie (I'm not sure what type of fruit because I didn't have any) and my personal favorite, a Gooey Pumpkin Cake that grandma made. It was a Paula Dean recipe, and boy was it fattening. I mean delicious.

We ate and ate and ate, and then we played balderdash (which I almost won!) and then we played Guesstures (which I did win! I totally rocked, the drama geek shone through). Grandpa played Guesstures with us, and one of his words was "stripper" which he proceeded to do... which was quite possibly the most hysterically funny thing I've ever seen. We have a video. Too funny. I enjoyed Balderdash more, that game is a complete riot. I need to buy it I think, it's a wonderful party game.

Once the games were over and we were all worn out from laughing we headed home, bringing with us Quincie (sister in law). She was going shopping with me on Black Friday so she spent the night. We stopped at Walmart on our way home and bought snacks and the movie Hancock, with Will Smith. We got home around 6pm and made snacks and sat around watching the movie (which was pretty good I thought). When the movie ended we sat for awhile talking and playing on the computers until I had to go to bed.

Friday morning I got up at eight when Mitch left for work and made coffee and got ready to go join the insane masses at the stores. Once Quinc and Alex were up we headed to Walmart to see what we could find. It was just after 11 so most of the good sales were over, but I found a couple of things for Mitchell, and Quincie got a couple of things for our sisters in law, Kathryn and Alicia. From there we headed to Old Navy where I got Mitch two thermal shirts for work and Q got Chad a Christmas present. They were handing out mints in line, it was kind funny. After Old Navy we battled our way into the mall, which was kinda scary, but extremely fun. We went all over the mall, buying some fun stuff. We went to Icing and bought gifts for each other, which we pretended were for ourselves. We kept picking things out going, "I think YOU would love this!" It was really funny, the girl that was working there kept coming over to us and laughing at us. Alex loves that store, all the shiny things for him to rip off of the walls...

We had lunch in the food court and then went on a mission to find my mom the perfect pink sweater. She wants a pink sweater, a plain pink sweater, like a crayola pink, or pepto bismal maybe. Do you have any idea how impossible it is to find a plain pink sweater? There's magenta and fushia and purplish pink and really light pink and rose pink... We finally found one at JC Penny that is almost perfect. Im not sure about the color, but it was only $9.88, so I got it anyway. If I do happen upon the "perfect one" I'll just get her that too.

But I got most of my Christmas shopping done. I think we're going to get Chad & Kathryn and Alf & Alicia VISA gift cards. I know it's lame and completely impersonal, but that way they can get whatever they want. I might do the same for Dad & Mom and Grandma & Grandpa. We'll see. No one wants anything, it's incredibly frusterating.

As for Alexander... I don't know. We were looking at a train table set at Toys R Us. We'll see. We've still got time, so hopefully we can figure something out. It's not like he can tell me what he wants.

Personally I really want a PSP. I've been looking on ebay, and I'm actually bidding on one, but I'll probably get outbid. I need to stop buying things on ebay.

Anyway, last night once the shopping was over and Mitch was home from work, I took Quincie to see Twilight. It was my second time seeing it already, and it was great again. I will go see it again and again if the chance arises. I will definately be buying it when it come out on DVD.

I guess I could have pointed out that in September we moved from Orlando to Flushing, MI. I don't really want to talk about that, it's too depressing. On the bright side we're living with my mom and dad so we have no bills so we have money. I'm bidding on some fabric on ebay, I want to make a quilt for Kelly for christmas.

Almost Birthday Time!

So my birthday is coming up on Monday. I'll be 25, woo hoo. Half way to fifty. I want either a Transformers party or a space shuttle-themed party. On tuesday Kelly took me to a red wings game. It was a ton of fun. I'm still waiting on most of the pictures, Walgreens gave me a blank cd and charged $3 for it, aren't they awesome. Anyway, I'm tired and don't really know why I have a blog. My life is fairly boring and no one wants to read about it. I stay home with the baby every day. That's about it. Ta ta for now.
