How do you usually celebrate on New Year's Eve?
Up until a few years ago we never did anything. Then we started going to a New Year's Eve party at a friends house. This year we are going to a New Year's Eve party at the church where our oldest son attends youth group.
Name one thing unexpected that happened to you in 2006.
We started raising chickens...just a few so we'd be able to have some eggs. We hatched them from eggs which the kids thought was so cool.
Where was your favorite place that you visited in 2006?
I don't think I went anywhere exciting this year.
What resolution is your top priority for 2007?
I don't generally make resolutions but I'd like to do a better job of staying in touch with family and friends. This was my 2006 resolution as well and I did okay with it but I'd like to do better this year.
Using just three words, describe 2006.
Achey, Tired, Sleepless...hmm, does it sound like I was pregnant and had a baby in 2006? LOL

Andy and the kids gave me a gorgeous Last Supper piece made out of olive wood from Bethlehem. I love it!
My parents gave us some cute decal people so now my car and our big van have little people on the back of them. I'm especially excited because Andy wouldn't let me put the fish on my car...he said if I can't fit all the people in my car, I can't show all the fish. You see I didn't let that deter me from putting all the little people on my car. =) The first picture is my car, the second and third pics are of the van.
I also got a digital camera from my parents which I'm very excited about because it now means I don't have to constantly try to get the other camera from Andy everytime I want to take a picture. The above pictures were taken with my new camera...I'm still trying to figure out how to get it to work the way I want...and it took me way to long to figure out how to get the pictures transferred from the camera to the computer but I finally figured it out. I'm also getting a swivel recliner glide rocker with money that my in laws gave me. My other gliders have bit the dust so they all getting tossed out once I receive the new one. I'm very excited about it.
Andy got a new coffee pot, a new George Foreman grill (we wore the other one out) from me and the kids. From my parents he got a big toaster oven. I'm not sure what he's going to use his money from his parents for but I'm sure he'll come up with something...I heard rumblings about a tiller. ;) His mom also got him the exact same George Foreman grill. What are the odds. LOL
The big things from us for the kids was... some PS2 games for the boys, Kenzie got a softball glove and ball, Bekah and Andy got T.M.X. Elmo, Kearsyn got some bottles...poor girl got something practical. LOL From Andy's parents...Alex got a guitar (now to work on getting lessons), Connor got a metal detector and binoculars, Kenzie got a keyboard, Taylor got a karaoke machine, Tyler got a boxing bag, Bekah got lots of clothes and Kearsyn got lots of diapers and some toys. From my parents, Connor got pool balls with the Eagles (he loves) and the Colts (he hates but my mom loves) emblem. Alex got pool balls with the Ravens (he loves) and the Redskins (he hates but my mom loves...see a pattern yet. LOL) emblem. Everyone got chess pieces for the new table and they got lots of different family type games.
My mom always makes something for us for Christmas and this year is was people made out of pieces of her porch railing when she redid it. Aren't they cute?

What is one of your Christmas traditions?
Setting up my Christmas village and nativity scene and getting together with family every year.
Who is the easiest person on your list to buy presents for?
My dad...he loves gadgets and tools so if you buy something along those lines, he'll be happy.
What is your favorite Christmas scent?
Pine...I love the smell of a fresh pine tree. Unfortunately we don't get a real tree anymore due to all the kiddos but I used to love it when we did.
If you could give a fellow blogger a Christmas gift, who would it be and what would you give them?
I would give Tammy peace...she sure deserves it. (((Hugs))) sweetie!
What's something on your Christmas wish list this year that you need (not just want)?
There isn't anything that I need...I'm already more than blessed with all my wonderful children and a loving DH...but I would love to have more sleep if there was a way to get it. ;)

We got new insurance cards for all the kids showing their new pcp except for Kearsyn which is the one we really need. They only put 6 cards in an envelope so I'm assuming the one that has her card in it got separated from the other envelope. I wish it would show up as the others got here a few days ago. I figure I'll give it til after the holidays and if we haven't gotten it by then, I'll have them send another. I know her pcp got changed because I can view the info online so worst case scenario, if she gets sick before we get the new card I'll just print that page out. Updating to say that we received Kearsyn's new insurance card today, 12/22, so we are all set for the new doctor. =)
We finally got our refund check from the over payments to the specialist office for Alex & Kenzie's broken collarbones. I called the beginning of November to request it so it took about a month and a half for them to get it to us.
Today we did some house cleaning since we are having a small piano recital here tomorrow. Will be fun to listen to the kids playing.
I've made up all my days for work where I was short on leave so now I'm free until Jan 2. Yay! I was even able to help with a couple of programming modifications that they needed done so my timing was perfect for this make up work.
Bekah is doing so well with her sign language. She walked up to me today and did the sign for drink and then milk to let me know she was thirsty and wanted a glass of milk to drink. How cool!
I unpacked all my regular clothes and boxed up my maternity ones the other day. Anyone want to take bets on how long they'll stay boxed up? And Andy, you stay out of it! ;)
I was able to get most of the presents wrapped today while the kids were over at a friends house practicing for the recital tomorrow. Still have a few more to do but shouldn't take long...finding the time without the kids around will be the problem. And trying to do it at night it's that easy because that's when Kearsyn is at her grumpiest.

We went to my parents yesterday to celebrate my dad's and Kathy's birthday. It was a nice visit although the boys/guys spent most of time in front of the tv watching the Ravens game. LOL Afterwards, mom took Connor to go see Eragon. Alex had seen it with his youth group on Saturday and really enjoyed it. Kenzie was so upset that Connor got to go to the movies with mom. Never mind that Saturday afternoon, she'd gone to birthday sleepover party that also included going to Build a Bear workshop, getting smoothies and pizza and then going out to Fisherman's Restaurant for dinner.
I tried doing some work today but it didn't go very well as Kearsyn was a complete grump today. I'm not sure what was up with her but she sure wasn't happy. It was also a very late night last so that didn't help things any. It was beautiful outside today so we took outside for a little while. Andy swung with her on the swing while I jumped on on the trampoline. I'm going to be so sore tomorrow...as Andy so kindly said, I'm no spring chicken anymore. LOL Oh and speaking of the trampoline, the younger kids have been banned from it after Tyler tried to hang himself on the top of the enclosure net. He got two huge scrapes on the underside of his chin around his neck where he flew up and got his neck on the top of the netting that is supposed to keep him in the trampoline. Guess that only works if you aren't trying to jump higher than the netting which is what Kenzie and Tyler were trying to do.
Tonight we went to the Christmas party for Alex's youth group which was at the youth group leaders house. What a gorgeous house it was too. He made half the house from trees that he'd cut down from his own property. How cool is that? The walls, flooring and ceiling were left the natural wood that had been made into planks (no bark on it) and he had a loft area with a cool spiral staircase. I know Andy and Alex are hoping to get invited over when the weather gets warmer (that sounds funny since it was 68 degrees today) to shoot paintballs since the guy owns 15 acres of wooded land. How fun! The kids did a huge Yankee Trader game and it was such a hoot watching them pick a present and them steal presents from each other. The biggest kid there ended up with a girls bag with lotion in it. It was hilarious! The gift Alex unwrapped was a great hot chocolate set but someone eventually stole that from him. He ended up having to go back to the pile and unwrapped a big box of bubblegum which he was just as happy with and no one tried to steal. The hot gifts of the night were a lava lamp and the hot chocolate set. The kids got really into it. Bekah made a new friend and it was fun watching them "playing" cards and putting out poker chips. They sure start young. LOL

Alex is very excited about tomorrow as he gets to go see Eragon with his youth group. Connor, on the other hand, isn't quite as excited because he wants to go as well but he doesn't know that his mommom is planning on taking him to see it. She's not sure she can do it this weekend...but one day soon she will. Kenzie is going to a sleepover birthday party tomorrow so she's looking forward to that. She's going to be eating at a nice restaurant...I'm kind of jealous cause she'll be eating better tomorrow than we will. LOL Wednesday is my dad's birthday, so we are all going to my parents on Sunday to celebrate. My sister and her DH are coming over so it should be a nice time.
So far I've worked 5 out of my 8 makeup days for work. I was able to redo two of the reports so that my boss could review them over the weekend...he loves to work on the weekend. The rest of us hate it because we know come Monday that there will always be a list of things for us to do. I only have 3 more days to make up and I'll be glad when they are done. I'll work Monday, Wednesday and Thursday next week and then I'll be done working until the new year. Of course, that means I'll actually have to start going back into the office on 1/2/07...wow, hard to believe it almost the new year...which I'm so not looking forward to...but I know everyone there is. ;)
What was your very first job with a paycheck?
I assisted a family friend in teaching computer programming at a day camp.
Did you ever lose something really important to you?
Not that I can remember so if I ever did, I've long since forgotten about it.
What is the best Christmas present you ever received?
As a child it would have to be the year I received the game Merlin. It was the only thing I really wanted that Christmas and my parents hid it a the very back of the tree to torture me. LOL
As an adult, it would be the year I received my mother/child necklace after having our second child. I wore that necklace everyday until the pendant finally broke a couple of years ago, at which point, my hubby bought me a new one...not the exact style...but one I love just as much...and I wear this one everyday just like the other one. =)
Tell about a favorite "hang out" place for you and your friends when you were in high school.
Because my friends in high school lived from one end of our county to the other we did most of our hanging out in the band room at school, whether or not we actually had something band related going on.
Name something that always brings a smile to your face.

Not much else happening here today. I worked a full day, Andy & Kenzie went grocery shopping, Alex is at youth group and the rest of the kids are around the house somewhere probably getting into trouble. ;)
Alex got home from youth group a little while ago and made this cute Nativity ornament there. I love nativity scenes! =) He also made a candy cane reindeer but he ate that one before I could take a picture of it. LOL
Only one more day to go before I find out who my secret Santa is. I've had such a fun time and am looking forward to finding out who has given me all the wonderful gifts.

Today we ate a late lunch because there was a party for the Chorale after their concert today. We had a deep fryed ham which was delicious! The outside of the ham always burns to a crisp but the inside is so moist. If you've never tried one, you really should. =)
But because we ate a late lunch, that meant Bekah didn't get her nap which meant by the time the concert came around, she was way too cranky to go in to listen to it. So Alex, Bekah, Kearsyn and I wandered the hallways of the church trying to keep her quiet while they were singing. Alex found some legos in one of the classrooms so that kept her entertained until the end of the concert. Alex actually ended up having two other little kids join them...he's such a kid magnet. LOL I ended up sitting outside the doors of where they were singing so I could somewhat hear them but it just wasn't the same as being inside. And the acoustics in this church are just amazing! They sounded beautiful. It always amazes me how good a bunch of kids sound when singing together. The party afterwards was nice, lots of pizza, cake, cookies, pretzels, fruit and alot more people than last year as the choir has actually grown this year. That's so nice to see as we'd lost of lot of membership last year.
Alex has a bunch of activities coming up with the church where he attends the youth group...going to see the movie Eragon, an ice skating party, a Christmas party at the pastor's house and a New Year's Eve party at the church which is open to the whole family. He's really looking forward to these events and I think the New Year's Eve party will be really fun although we'll see how long Kearsyn and Bekah make it. ;)

Which language would you like to learn and why?
Not a spoken language, but I'd like to learn sign language to help us better communicate with our daughter while she is learning to talk. I'm amazed at how quickly she can pick the signs up and if I'd known, I would have started this much earlier with her.
What's the funniest thing you've heard or read so far this week?
Hmm, can't think of anything right now.
Which movie was so bad you couldn't watch the whole thing?
I couldn't finish watching The Master of Disguise. Was just too stupid for me.
If there were a holiday in your honor that didn't use your actual name, what would the day be called?
National Sleep Day because I'm very sleep deprived lately with a 2 month old in the house. ;)
Name one movie which is coming out soon that you would like to see.
The Nativity Story...although I know it's already out.

On the work front, I received a phone call phone from my boss's boss today (he thinks I actually work for him and not my boss and who's going to argue with him since he's the VP of the department. LOL) He was very excited to know that I was available for work again and had a list of things for me to do. I also had a coworker call me yesterday wanting me to help her redo a report so I'm not lacking for things to do while home. Now I just need to get my brain out of baby mode and back into work mode which isn't the easiest thing to do.
I had an ortho appt today which has resulted in me wearing my retainer full time again. I've been complaining about a couple of teeth still touching and my bite feeling off by the end of the day since my braces came off so he's thinking that my teeth are still trying to shift. So now instead of wearing my retainer just at night now I get to wear it full time for the next three at which point he'll reevaluate how things are going. I don't really have an issue with wearing it full time cause after all the money I spent getting my teeth straightened, I certainly want them to stay that way.
It sure has gotten windy here today. We have a huge front going through which is bringing in cold weather. Once this front gets past it' supposed to get somewhat nice again. I just looked at weatherbug and we currently have winds blowing at 20+ mph and we had a 41+ mph gust at some point today. I'm glad we don't have anything out there that can blow around although I hate to think about what this wind is doing to our poor Christmas lights.
I received this gorgeous ornament from Sara in our CSC Ornament Exchange. I love all the beading on it...and it even has a beaded hanger and tassels. And the cording is awesome. I've never seen anything like it and I know that Sara made it herself because she talks about it here. Awesome job!
She also sent a beautiful handpainted ornament for Kearsyn. How wonderful!
Thanks again for both of the beautiful ornaments! They will be greatly treasured.
Oh and Sara, if the pics look familiar, it's because I snagged them off your site. You did such an awesome job photographing, I figured why redo them. LOL

I received a phone call from work this morning and ended up spending the majority of the afternoon and evening logged into work trying to fix a programming problem. I finally figured out what was wrong with one of the files but I'll have to log back in tomorrow to fix the other file. I was too tired at that point to do more. This actually helps me because I was going to be short on leave and working some from home help me be able to stay off until after the new year without taking unpaid leave, which we can't afford for me to do.
The kids had their piano practice today and came home with a surprise. I mentioned in an earlier post that on Friday they played with their teacher a little at the store he was playing in. Well, the store gave each one of the kids $5 for playing there. How nice is that?
Nothing much else happening here...Taylor had Secret Garden today and we forgot to take the van in to get the oil changed. Oops! We'll try to remember to drop it off tomorrow.

Wowwee, what happened to our nice weather?? It was downright cold today and very windy with gusts up to 30+ mph. I was disappointed this morning, though, cause they'd been calling for a chance of snow last night and early this morning and I didn't see one flake. Darn!

Saturday was also pick up day for our family pictures and they turned out great, if I do say so myself. They always do such a good job both with the group shots and with the individual pictures. Getting 9 people to look at the camera at the same time and keep their eyes open is not small feat. Here is our Christmas picture for this year.
On Friday, Connor, Kenzie & Tyler got to play a little bit at one of the stores in the area. There piano teacher was providing background music for the evening and had invited his students to stop by and play a few songs. It was fun for the kids even though there are alot of distractions playing in that type of environment.
Today is the first day of Advent and Tyler got to do the honors of lighting the first candle.
And here's picture of Kearsyn smiling. =) She has her two month check up tomorrow and she's due to get lots of shots so I don't expect alot of smiling tomorrow. Poor baby.

1) Alex - my oldest DS
2) Acorns - something my twins love to collect when we are at the park
3) Alligator - Bekah has a book about an alligator that's top is shaped like one and has jaws that she can snap open and closed. She loves it!
4) Apples - a fruit that we can not keep in this house because the kids love them and will eat them all as soon as we get them in the house
5) Airplanes - we live close to a small airport so there are usually always planes buzzing around overhead
6) Allegiance - my kids all say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning before starting school
7) Aggravate - my oldest DS has been doing this to his younger siblings alot lately
8) Action - my kiddos are always in some form of action so it's constant motion around here from the time they wake up to the time they go to bed
9) Automobiles - we have 3 of these although two of them no longer fit our entire family. We have a Volvo wagon, a Dodge mini van and a Ford 15 passenger van
10) Always - once you are a mom, you will always worry about your kids...no matter how old they get
That was fun although I did have to think about coming up with words alot more than I thought I might.
Anyone else want to play? Just comment here and I will assign you a letter of the alphabet. Then go to your blog and post a list of 10 words that begin with this letter and what they mean to you.
She also gave each if the kids a bag of Christmas chocolate. They love it! For Kearsyn, she gave a baby's first ornament which is wonderful because I hadn't gotten her a first ornament yet.
Thank you so much!!

Bekah had her speech evaluation appt today. I was very impressed with how the ladies did the evaluation. They even taught Bekah how to sign "more" which she still remembers. That's so amazing to me that she can be shown the sign a couple of times and she is still retaining it. Makes me want to learn more signs that can be taught to her. They were totally impressed with her motor skills...she's actually doing a number of things above age level. She is delayed in her speech area so she does qualify for the program. The next steps are for them to write up their report to figure out exactly where she falls, then we'll get together to discuss the findings. During that meeting, we'll decide on how best to proceed with getting her additional speech help. The good news is...actually there are two...1) it's free and 2) they'll come to the house to everything so that will make things easier on us.
Kenzie's softball practices have started back up again. They are only optional at this point but do you think my girl would miss any kind of practice?? No way! LOL So Andy and she made the trek to Trappe to the indoor facility for the practice tonight.
Connor is impatiently waiting for the Ravens game to start. This child loves football!
I've seen so many beautiful pictures of sunrises and sunsets lately...Velda's and Andy's...I thought I would post one that I took tonight as I went out to turn on our outside Christmas lights. I realize now after looking at the picture that I should have walked out farther on the deck so our rain spout and satellite wires weren't in it. Oops! LOL

How do you secure your thread when you begin a new one? Specifically,When stitching with two threads, I almost always use the loop method. When not using hte loop method, I'll leave a tail long enough to weave under the stitches or I use a waste knot. When stitching with one strand, I always use a waste knot.
do you or have you ever used a waste knot?
To perform the loop method you cut the strand twice as long as desired for stitching. Fold the strand in half, and insert the cut ends in the eye of your needle. The folded end is at the opposite end of the strand. Come up through the fabric, leaving the loop on the underside. Make your first stitch. Bring the needle down through the loop in the folded end of the strand, and pull until loop lies flat against the fabric.
To perform the waste knot method you tie a knot in the end of the floss. Thread the needle and draw the floss through the top of the fabric near the edge. Bring the floss up through the back of the fabric in the desired starting spot and begin stitching.

What beautiful weather we have been having here the past couple of days. You sure wouldn't know that it's the last week in November by being outside. Now if we could just get our yard to dry out after all that rain we had last week. It's still extremely soggy out there.
I did some Christmas shopping yesterday and actually went to a store to do it. That's a rarity for me. LOL I usually do most shopping online cause I hate having to hunt for things in the store and they rarely have want I want anyway. I was pleasantly surprised because I actually found most of what I wanted to get for my sister and her DH so they are pretty much done at this point. Yay! The kids presents have all been ordered and are starting to arrive. The only ones left to buy for now are our parents. I also still need to get a birthday present for my dad whose b'day is 12/20. We're going to try and get the family together on the 17th to celebrate. It's always hard with Dad's b'day being so close to Christmas especially now that my sister alternates the holidays with her inlaws.
Thusday is going to be a busy day. We're going to look at a private school that is having an open house in the morning. Not sure that we can actually avoid it, even though they do offer some financial aid to go there, but it can't hurt to check it out. In the afternoon, there is a Homeschoolers Open House at the college. Alex is going to be taking a Composition class there which will be good for him plus it will help lighted the load a little for Andy in the spring since he won't have to cover that subject. Also Thursday afternoon, Bekah has her speech evaluation appointment so we'll see how that goes. She's been in a terrible two's mood here lately. Hope she gets out of it soon cause she's driving me crazy. She thinks she can make up for it by flashing me her cute grin and giving me a kiss...which of course works. LOL
Haven't done any stitching lately although I really need to get a move on finishing up my Christmas ornament. I've had it stitched up for weeks...just can't figure out how to finish it. I wanted to do something different but I can't figure out what so I haven't done anything. :(

Andy has more details of the night on his site but here's a pic of the huge poinsetta tree they do there every year. It's gorgeous!
I've actually been able to get some sleep the past couple of nights. Kearsyn slept from 1 - 5:45 last night and from 11:30 - 5:15 the night before. Of course Bekah was up sick that night about 4 but thankfully Kenzie got Andy up to help with her so I got to stay asleep. I'm not sure what to do with myself after getting that much uninterrupted sleep. LOL I'm not counting on it lasting though. Kearsyn is going through a growth spurt so that's making her sleeping. I can barely get her to stay awake long enough to eat before she's back out out again. She's such a sweetie. She's starting to coo and will smile at you now. How fun!
