And it goes a little something like this...

Dec. 14 - Sandy Hook

Dec. 15 - Came home to find that dog ate Christmas tree and homemade ornaments

Dec. 20 - Big Daddy got laid off from work (yup right before Christmas)

Dec. 24 - went to open our family Christmas gift that Juju made for us in school...there was nothing in probably fell out in his class...he cried so hard that it hurt my heart. I never want to see him that sad ever again.

 Dec. 25 - the dudes rode their bikes we got them for Christmas for the first time and loved every minute of it! Even when BamBam fell off the bike, he was scratched up pretty bad but still had the biggest smile on his face.

Dec. 26 - 2 friends of ours got married. Spent the evening at their house celebrating with great friends, homemade tamales, pecan pie, ice cream cake, beer, wine, and shots. Also found out that Big Daddy is being sponsored to play in the Las Vegas 7s rugby tournament (no out of pocket for this trip at all)

Dec. 27 - I packed the dudes' bag because VonTrapp picked them up in the afternoon to spend the last week of vacation with her. Later made my way to the post office and demanded they tell me where in Carmen San Diego is the package that I mailed last week to N.C. (It's my carabox that I sent)

Dec. 28 - went suit shopping with Big Daddy (needs a dark suit for a job conference in January).  Babysat a friend's kids, ate chicken Alfredo pizza and drank Bud Light platinum (it's gross, but its beer).

Now I am sitting here watching an old Samuel L Jackson movie with Big Daddy, brainstorming.

Tough end of the year for us, but we managed to keep it together. Come on 2013...I'm ready!


  1. Whoa, that sounds tough. What kind of company lays people off right before Christmas?! That's horrible! I know how tough it can be when you have no steady income so I totally get how stressed out you both must be. Things will get better - though it may not seem like it sometimes - they always do. Praying for the best for you all!!!!!

    1. Thanks mama! I believe 2013 will bring forth greatness :-)

  2. Wow a lot has gone on! How lame to be laid off right before Christmas!

  3. So sorry! I hope things start to look up for you. 2013 will bring lots of happiness, I just know it!
