Sheri here. I've been a bit remiss in posting as I've had a zoo at my house and apparently I'm the zoo keeper.
I hope all of you enjoyed Christmas. I have. It's been exhausting, but enjoyable. Some of our guests left yesterday, so my sister treated me to a massage. Oh My Bob!!!!! I think I must make this a regular habit! I actually came home and took a two hour nap! That is unheard of in Motherland! Then I fell asleep early and had probably the best night's sleep I've had in a long time! Great! You must do this.
I'm sure that many of you are making your resolutions and plans for next year. I know I am. Of course I make the typical lose weight, be a better wife, mother, employee resolution. As I'm thinking through all the "I'm going to's", I picked up the January 07 issue of Good Housekeeping. Dr. Phil wrote an article "Dr. Phil's plan to help you change for good". Now, I'm not usually a Dr. Phil fan. Can't tell you why, I'm just not. I must have been very bored because I started reading his article and actually plan to use some of what I read. I will bullet the important points.
That's the whole point in his article. Say you've decided to exercise and eat better. Your habit of sitting on the couch with a cookie in one hand and a cold beer in the other must be replaced with a new habit. Instead of saying I won't eat fast food, make a plan to eat more healthy foods.
OK, enough of this feel good shit. I am going to try to incorporate some of these good habits into my life and try to replace some of the bad ones. Below are some pictures that I promised before Christmas. Yes, I am a slacker. What can I say! Enjoy!
Cookies - Can't have a Christmas without cookies!
Daughter and son #2 putting up tree. I didn't rotate the pic-bite me!
Daughter and son #2 not being to successful with the tree. Yes, he ended up on the floor with the tree on top of him. I was laughing to hard to take pictures.
All done and decorated. Looks like Santa was here!
Hubs enjoying his Christmas breakfast! Yeah, don't get excited. I put bagels by the toaster and set out cream cheese.
Even muff puff got a gift from Santa!
Again, SuZan and I want to wish you all our blogging buddies a safe and happy New Year! Each of you have touched our lives in some way! It wouldn't be the same without you!
Remember-go to the side bar and vote for your favorite blog!
I picked this present because I wanted to show you the ribbon (DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME). I saw this feather ribbon in the store so I thought it would look cool. After making the bow I have about decided that it looks like something that Mercedes has regurgitated.
Don't get this...it sucks!
This one is for you Shaun! Since we have a stocking that says "Stuff it, Stuff it" I just couldn't resist. G2 is my partner in crime...hehehe.
SOMETHING STUFFED IN A STOCKING
Did you play?
He even wanted the 'paws' on the back of the helmet. I had to use a pencil eracer and carve out a paw and then stamp them on. Yes...a Martha moment for sure.This was my first attempt at floral arranging. I think I surprised Big G, I know I surprised myself.
Last night we had an ornament exchange party over at Nichole's house. It is always great seeing some of the Houston blogger bitches
SuZan, Shell, Nichole, Carrie, Sheri
OK, I must stop now. Really, sympathy will be appreciated. Or wine.....wine for my whine! I just made myself laugh.
Um, where to start? Let's see, could we start with the hair? Yes, the hair. And the dress. It was 32 flucking degrees outside people! She had no coat. The opened toed shoes.....I can't go on.......
Let us know if you played!

It's not Monday, and it's not Hump Day; so it must be "Tickle Tuesday". Tickle Tuesday is our attempt to lighten your load and make your week just a little brighter. Enjoy!
A blond was driving down the street, in a panic because she had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking space.
Looking up toward heaven, she said,
"Oh Lord, please take pity on me. If you find me a parking space, I will go to church every Sunday for the rest of my life, and give up sex and tequila."
Miraculously, an empty spot appeared.
She looked up again and said,
"Never mind, found one."
Have a great week!
Here is Sheri all decked out for the game (and Big-G being a bit of clown himself).
