Fridays Final Thoughts 12-17-10...Running out of time

This Daddy's Blog


As we get closer to Christmas, the list of things to do gets longer and the time gets shorter.  Finding time to wrap gifts and finish up what needs to be done is hard to find.  Getting home late and the kids staying up late makes it hard to get stuff done at night and T has long days so she is tired.  Im sure we will be making the late push again this year to pull of a great Christmas.

The C's has a Christmas Gingerbread House contest today.  They were excited to go and they think they are going to win and get a blue ribbon.  C1 was saying it was all about the fun and C2 was saying he just wanted to win.  So maybe they will have fun and win.
They were very proud of themselves.

The other day Elfie gave the C's a special Polar Express book, that came with a read along cd, so last night night we put the cd in and gave a listen
The C's loved it and C4 was the only one
who noticed I was taking pic's.
He is becoming a little face maker.

We are taking the kids this weekend to Lake Lanier for the Magical Nights of Lights.  This is suppose to be an awesome display of Christmas lights and you drive on a 7 mile stretch and they have lots of other things to do as well.  So the kids will be surprised. They know we are going somewhere, they just don't know where.
And I think if they might even get to have breakfast with Santa.

Elfie has become the hit in our house over the past weeks. So much that even C4 who is 18 months old is walking around the house trying to find him.  He has gotten so good at searching for Elfie that C4 has been the one to find him the last two days. Finding him in the fridge and in the Christmas tree.

So milestones are important when you have kids. Right?  Sure they are.  Well we had one yesterday and I sure did find out about it in a not so exciting way.  I got a picture text from T yesterday. Stay with me...T told me C4 was making the face.  Yes the face of a pooper...Stay with me...So she asked him if he wanted to go make poo poo on the potty.  Stay...He ran to the potty and Stay....HE DID IT.  HE POOPED ON THE POTTY.  YEAH.  THAT IS AWESOME.
But.... I didn't need a picture of it.  Yes it with the SH on the front of IT.  That was more on the lines of something I would do. Send a picture of IT with the SH on the front...But it was awesome.
And funny!!!

C2 started doing something that I do on the regular....He started running around the house in his drawers and was spanking his own butt and saying something about being too sexy for his ?????
Ok, he gets that from me. I know, I know.

Well my gift idea for T got a good laugh.  The D*&K in a Box. Yeah that went over well. Know who got the last laugh, not me.  T left a cute comment on that saying she didn't think we had a
"Small enough box"

And with that we move on to football.  I rocked again last week. With the picks I gave you and in the office pool going a total of 14-6.  Bringing home the $$$ for the second week in a row.

Here we go with this weeks picks.
(winners in bold)

New England(home)-9 vs. Green Bay - Tom Brady+Snow+NO Aaron Rodgers= big victory to keep the Pats on a roll.

Cincinnati(home)-1.5 vs. Cleveland - Can Cincy lose any more? Probably but Im picking them cause I love T.O and OchoCinco. Just win a game for crying out loud.

Atlanta-7 @ Seattle - Trap Game Alert.  Cross Country travel.  Saints the following Monday. Damn this game worries me but with Matty Ice we beat that ass and I can relax.

Minnesota(home)-1.5 vs. Chicago - This is all kinds of messed up.  The line was set before the Vikes had no qb and the Bears are needing a W.  Game in the snow. The Vikes suck A$$ and well that's it.

Have a great weekend.

I've been wanting to go to a place where you can drive through the lights like that for a long time. We used to go when we lived close to one, but the kids don't remember it. Your kiddos are adorable!
