I know that is a horrible thing to say, but 50s in New England for Christmas just did not make for a very Merry Christmas here. As much as I tried not to all I kept thinking was "is it really Christmas because it seems like just another day to me".
Anyways...Christmas Eve we went to my aunt's house so that the kids could open their gifts. Jordan got 3 or 4 transformers, some new clothes, an ambulance lego set, and a few other gifts that I am sure that I am forgetting about. Ashley got a play piggy bank, some new clothes, a air doll (you can put air in it and make it life-like or leave it so that it is soft and squishy), a few wooden puzzles, and again some things that I am sure that I am missing. Jerry got a gym membership to Planet Fitness, some body wash, some razor refills, and new socks and boxers. I got a beautiful gold chain for everyday wear, some body wash, $30 worth of gift cards to AC Moore, a $10 gift certificate to Annie's Book Stop, and a big tub of puff peppermints. Jerry and I both ended up getting a new DVD player from my parents too.
On the stitching front...I have not gotten much stitched at all. I am hoping to get some stitching in a little later or at least tonight after the kids go to bed.
Can't wait to read about what everyone else got for Christmas.

I am so sick of being sick!! I have been disinfecting and all that crap and still can't get rid of this head cold. It just keeps coming back and harder each time. I have been working a little off and on on Iris but am charging batteries for camera right now so I will take a picture later.

OK now that I have some more time I will blog some more. The past few nights Ashley has been waking up screaming. Thought that maybe she kept getting scared becasue Jordan has a tendency to talk in his sleep (they share a bedroom for now), but after the third night I started getting aggrevated since I was getting NO SLEEP that night (at this point she is sleeping 5 minutes here and there). Last night I finally decided that to just give her some Motrin and hope that it knocked her out for at least a few hours. She slept the rest of the night She went back down at 3 and she slept until 7 when I had to get her up to take Jordan to school. Anyway called the doctor's this morning to have her checked becasue began to think that she might have another ear infection. Sure enough she has not one but to ear infections (I know MEAN MOMMY). Since this is her third one in a matter of about a month and a half then they want to check her in 2 weeks and if the infection hasn't cleared up then she will have to go and see an ENT. Well pizza is here so I am off to have some dinner.

What the heck happened to the Pats today?? I am not that into football, but from all the grumbling that DH and his buddy were doing I figured that the Pats stunk big time. Anyway while they grumbled I stitched. Hopefully tomorrow I can put some more stitches into this while Ashley is napping. No errands are planned other than going out to buy some more DMC 415 after I drop Jordan off at school. Then I can work some more on this piece which I am enjoying stitching as much as I di the first time I stitched it.
