The white stuff just melted.
It's gone.
All 24 inches of it.
We had a white Christmas.
First one I remember in 39 years.
Yes, I am that old.

Apparently, Mother Nature is considering blanketing the Philadelphia region again for New Years.
Is this a sign to come for the winter of 2010?
If so, I am not amused.
I like the white stuff
what a freakin mess!

That brings me to resolutions.
Are you making them?
I am.
Ones that I think I will be able to obtain.
You know, like not killing Bobster or the kids when they get on my nerves.
That sort of thing.

So what are your resolutions?
Tell me.

It was all for this

Santa filled our tree with tons of things.
While visions of sugar plums danced in our heads....sugar plums, Coors Light, it's all the same.
Then the littlest one woke up & gazed at the tree & all his Santa presents.
He then presented mommy with a "blow out".
Just what I asked for on Christmas morning.
He had to have a shower before continuing to open presents.
Christafus was very excited to receive his Bakugan game.
Really. He's excited!
Soft focus is always better for the mama.
Now if they just had a program to reduce my large frame to that of say Cindy Crawford.

TimBob was a very good boy this year.
His grandparents gifted him an Ipod Touch.
And as you can see someone was very happy with the turn out of the whole Christmas Day!
How was your Christmas?
Lemme know!

Wordless Wednesday~I'm a lucky woman, no?

What words can one use to describe this?

Seriously, I should know better...

Thanks to Twitter I recently won a pizza gift card thru Comcast Sports.
Yea me!
It was for Domino's.
Not my family's first choose but you don't look a gift horse in the mouth.

So last night, after it took me almost 90 mins to get home, which is normally a 35 min drive, the last thing I wanted to do was cook. Plus I had a mountain of laundry to do so I decided to use the gift card.

Easy ordering.
Love it.
One 16" pizza, half bacon.
Easy, no?

Apparently, on Sunday of this week there was a run on this size pizza.
The guy from Dominos called me to tell me they were out of the 16" & they didn't even have boxes for a 16" pizza.
Dominos ran out of pizza?
Are you kidding me?

So we agreed on a 14" w/ a side of cheesy bread.
OVER 45 mins later my pizza arrives.
Luke warm.

I set it in front of the king & the prince & open the box.
There sat the most pathetic, reheated pizza I had ever seen.
The person that made it, didn't make it, they just pulled scraps from unused pizza & shoved it in the box. Different size slices & they were all curling up from being reheated.
Then I opened the cheesy bread.
Wait, make that the plain bread with a crumb of congealed cheese.
To say I was pissed was an understatement.

I called back the # that called me to tell me about the pizza.
It's the guys cell.
I tell him what happened.
He offers to remake everything.
It arrives.
Looks tons better.
Of course it arrived 45 mins after I called.

It was pretty icky
The guy mad good on getting me out new pizza.

I just should know better than to ever order from Dominos.
They pretty much suck & it was approx 90 mins after I placed the order that I got my meal.
Whatever happen to 30 mins or free?
Even the online ordering said 15 - 20 mins for my delivery.
Then the guy told me the person that made my pizza left for the day.
Of course he did, mine was the last one he made before he left b/c it was a sh*t a** job.

I should b*tch since the kid made good on it
I want to know your experiences with Dominos.

Tell me.

I will not be a return customer b/c this happens more time than not with them.

Conversations with a 3yo...

The other evening Cheeks was leaning up against me as we sat on the couch.
He turned to me & said:
"Are those your pirates?"
I replied:
"What? What are you talking?"
The exchange went on for a few more seconds when he finally got exasperated & exclaimed:
"Mommy! Are those your Pirates!!!??"
All the while pointing to my breasts.
I started to laugh.
"Oh you mean Privates? Yes they are"
Cheeks rolled his eyes & said:
"Yea, mommy your Pirates!"

The other evening Cheeks was sitting between his father & I watching, what else, "The Incredible Hulk".
As Bobster & I carried on a conversation Cheeks became aggitated.
His father started to ask him what the Abomination's name was in the movie.
Bobster "Is it Ted?"
Cheeks "No, it's Abomidnation"
This went on for about 2 minutes when Cheeks finally exclaimed
"Shhhh! I'm trying to watch this!"

One night last week Cheeks had a cookie.
He took a bite.
I had him ask his father if he would like a cookie.
I gave Cheeks the cookies & instructed him to give it to his daddy.
He walked into the living room & said "Daddy I have your cookie"
The promptly handed him the one he had bitten & kept the intact cookies.

Last night we were having pizza for dinner.
Cheeks kept telling me he wanted to try the one with pineapple.
There were 2 slices left, one pineapple, one plain.
I give him the one with pineapple, he proceeds to take the pineapple off.
"What are you doing? Give me that piece & you can have this one Cheeks"
"No I want this one, I want to try it" as each pineapple lands on his plate.
He finally field strips it when I say to him "You could have just had this one"
He replies
"Yes, but this one is bigger"

So what convo's have you had lately?

How to keep a 3yo busy

First gather your baking supplies & your decorator.
Realize you do not have a rolling pin so you resort to using a filled spaghetti sauce jar.
Oh that's right, that's called the White Trash rolling pin.
Just keeping it real.

Cut out the annual Christmas T-Wreck dinosaur.

I know it's T-Rex but he insists & will correct you that it is T-Wreck.

Cut out the Snowman & let him go to town decorating.
At this point I allowed him to sample the decor.
I'm lucky there was any left to put on the cookies.

Follow directions & watch cookies explode. The ones in the lower right on your screen are supposed to be Triceratops.

These I put in for less time.
Perfect consistency but they got a bit BIG!

How are you keeping your little ones busy this season?
Have you started your holiday baking?

Happy Birthday & Weekend Update

It's the Grandpop's bday today.
Happy Birthday Grandpop!!!
Yes, folks, this is my lineage!

This weekend was a whirlwind. Took the littlest one to see Santa. I have a pic & would love to share but my scanner/computer isn't hooked up...something w/ my cd writer. Don't ask. I will take a pic with my camera & share.

We took all 3 kids to the Camden Aquarium to see The Children's Garden decorated for Christmas. Only $4 per person. Not too shabby.

And for those who don't know, Camden was just voted the most dangerous city in the whole USA. Double score! So after the aquarium Bobster took us on a tour of his old stomping grounds. Nothing like a family driving around a deadly city in a mini van at night. OOH! Triple Score!

This pic is awful, I was trying to find the right setting.
It's the only proof I had all 3 children together.
As you can see, Cheeks wasn't feeling standing still.
So what did you do this weekend?

Ode to Clorox

My Dearest Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner

I am writing this to let you know that you have powers that are magical, mystical and magnificient.
You go above the call of duty to get the job done.
You have been there, on the shelf, for yours calling my name.
Did I heed the call?
I looked at others.
Your competition.
Sadly, they couldn't compare.

Sure, they did an ok job but you, You, YOU
Do the JOB!

The other day I heeded your call.
Tossed you in the cart & brought you home.

I put you right where you belong.
Swished you around know to make you feel comfortable in your new surroundings.
When it was time for you to go, you left the area so shiney white & gleaning that I needed sunglasses.

Not like your competitors who left it with yellow streaks and always gave a disappointing feeling.
It only took me over 4 years to realize.
You are my one & only.

I love you Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner.

Tiger, Tiger, Tiger,

Really Tiger?
Did you think you would get away with it?
You are Tiger Woods....a pro golfer, celebrity.
Hear that....celebrity!

My opinion of what is going on doesn't matter, what I think is that the media needs to leave you alone.

You have 2 sweet babies who will be able to google this when they are older.
Doesn't the media have any consideration?
Don't answer that.

Hopefully you will straighten this out.
If you do, wonderful.
If you don't, shame on you & I hope your wife takes you for everything. Did I just really write that?

As for the media, leave him be.
He has children.
I am sure you in the media have children & realize how devastating this can be.

Tell me, what do you think?

Oh yea baby!

This is Cheeks absolute, utmost, favorite person (next to the Hulk) in the world.
Who is that blur?
Well it's The Grinch!

A coworker of mine managed to snag this for him from her mom's garage sale.
It is in pristine condition!

When I picked Cheeks up from daycare I had the Grinch sitting in the seat next to his.
He spotted it & started yelling "The Grinch! The Grinch!"
I then gave it to him & he exclaimed:
"The Grinch is so cool!"
He hasn't let go of him since.
Wanted to take him in the tub too.

Well, it's easy to please a 3yo...for tonight at least.

I, on the other hand, have caught Cheeks cold.
Little host carrier.
It arrived at 1am when my nasal cavity clogged up.
Now my nose is running non stop yet I'm stuffy.
My throat slightly burns but it's not too bad...knock wood.

So what makes your little ones happy?
