Good Morning Everyone! I don't think there will be much of a chat today...

Good Morning Everyone! I will drop in from time to time, but I don't think that today is going to be much of a chat (with me anyway). Feel free to talk with each other as much as you like. I have to pick up Zach and his friend at 9:30am.

I want to say Merry Christmas to all of you!


The chat room is now closed. Have a great weekend.

Good morning, early birds! Lots of last-minute decorating and cleaning going on here, too- not to mention a *small* bit of shopping ;)- so I just wanted to drop in and wish everyone a wonderful holiday!

Nancy said...

Good Morning all...
I will be spending my day trying to get out from upside down.
Everything is in the new house and I am now buried in the paper they wrapped everything in.
I unpacked about 20 boxes yesterday, and have about that many bags of garbage already.

Have a Great Christmas All!!!
Don't know how much I will get back today.

Steffie..got your card yesterday, and I love it.

amy said...

amy said...

Hope everyone is doing well on this cold Sat morning

amy said...

hubbys at work and I plan on napping and shopping

Nancy said...

I am dreading going out today, but we do need a few thing for the house. Probably should have gotten up early instead of cuddling with the hubby.

Nothings been wrong. Just took an unexpected break from blogging..There was no reason, just didnt have anything of interest to say I guess

Kim & Jeff said...

Hi Amy,

First time to the morning chat... Not usually home... I stop by your blog but don't think that I've left any comments :)

amy said...

Bad time to visit my blog. Im so used to posting almost daily but just havent been in the mood...

Kim & Jeff said...

Hi Kim.

Well let's just say the lights are all on the tree and it looks nice from the outside looking in :)

That is the project for today/tomorrow.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Sounds like fun...

We are going to take all the doggies to have their annual checkup

I am going to try and bake a homemade apple pie..
My mothers fine receipe

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

we have 3...
Nakita is husky cattle dog mix..
Akio is Shiba Inu
Delilah is shitzu

Kim & Jeff said...

We got our dogs primped yesterday... Shadow was so full of energy last night and let us know just how mad he was that he has new bows in his hair.

Anonymous said...

Good morning! Coffee is brewing in California, and the little people are already up and running at 6:30am. Doesn't bode well for Christmas morn, YAWN!

Kim & Jeff said...

I thought Delilah was a shih tzu aren't they the BEST!

mrs. incredible said...

whoops! that was me (trigger finger)...

amy said...

we have Lucy the basset hound

Kim & Jeff said...

Amy - don't feel bad... I still need to go out and brave the stores today as well..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Delilah is a shih tzu I was seeing if you would catch that...
They are sooofunny..
They have such a personality..
She keeps the other two on their toes..
She is sooo little..
Nakita keeps getting lumps under her throat.. not sure .they are suppose to tell us

Kim & Jeff said...

Tell me about the personality... But they are so loving and great around kids... Does she think she is as big as the other dogs?

Hope all goes well at the vet today.. do they have any idea what it could be?

amy said...

we have cats named Sammy and Delilah

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

She does really well with the others... she thinks she rules.. she will sit on top of them..
TOO FUNNY..
Well she had one in Sept. and she scratched it open and blood went everywhere.. we didn't know it was there..
They said it was a hematoma (sp.) blood clot.. caused by trauma or something.. but I didn't get that because she hasn't done anything..
well my oldest son's girlfriend was over last weekend and she felt the lump.. so I am not sure..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Sometimes I wonder if they really know what they are talking about..
She had been diagnose with Valley fever and they put her on these med's.. well they made her really snappy.. i asked the vet and they said it would not change her attitude.. well she was really mean to the other two.. she had snapped at Akio and put a little mark on him.. then one day snapped at Delilah and got her just in the right spot and now she is blind in one eye.. I took her off the meds.. and she has been fine..
Then when she had her last checkup they said it was gone.. well valley fever doesn't go away..
So I am not to sure..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

We also have a cat named Shadow.. but he has been missing for about 2-3 weeks.. not sure..
Kind of hoping he just went looking around the neighbor hood.. but I have a feeling he is gone..
We had that trouble with our first cat...I am waiting.. kids keep saying he is just out looking around..
No more cats if he is gone.. we can't keep them from going out the doggie door.. too hard.. Shadow had been hit by a car a few years back... cost a lot of money..

Kim & Jeff said...

Amy who rules at your house the basset or the cats.

Kim & Jeff said...

Any other vets that you could go to in your area? We finally found a vet that we really trust and like.. But it was hard...

Shadow goes in next week to get they boys taken care of. :(

Kim & Jeff said...

Giz gets spots that I call doggie warts (but I guess they are little blood filled sacks) Can operate to take them off if needed but doc doesn't seem too concerned...

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

We have always liked this vet.. they have been going there for 5 years..
We looked into getting into another one, but were not taking new patients..
Poor SHadow ...boys will be missing..
LOL..
He will do fine..
Well I have to get them ready to go...
Nice chatting with you all..
Have a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS

Kim & Jeff said...

I should get ready to head out as well... Merry Christmas everyone!

Hope you all have a blessed day with family...

amy said...

Lucy just ran through the doggie gate 3 times..Shes silly..She chases one of the kittens, the others keep their distance

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Kim have fun today.. can't wait to see the tree decorated..
Amy.. have fun shopping and get some rest...
Merry Christmas to both of you...
May this next year get us through a BUNCH of refferals.. and one step closer to our girls..
I think we will be chatting one more Christmas without them.. but then we will be sharing pictures with them in our photo's...
YEAH...
Can't wait..
Hugs to you both

Gail and Dan said...

I have lots to get done today, but wanted to say Merry Christmas to everyone!

redmaryjanes said...

Hey you guys! Look at all of the chatter. I'm back from picking up Zach and his friend.

Kim & Jeff said...

Hi Kim - just saw that you popped back in. Just wanted to say Merry Christmas :)

I'm getting ready to head out to finish my shopping. Have fun baking today!

redmaryjanes said...

Merry Christmas Kim, I was just over at your blog! Have a great day.

Kim & Jeff said...

I've been working with Verna to do a little redesign. It looks great can't wait to unveil :)

redmaryjanes said...

Verna does some really cool stuff and she is so nice. She does a lot of fundraising and things to help the families.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Hello Kim...
What are you going to be baking today???
I am going to attempt to bake a homemade apple pie tomorrow..
I really don't bake..
I am going to make my famous Pumpkin Roll too

redmaryjanes said...

Hi Kim, I'm so glad to talk to you. I don't know exactly what I'm baking. I'm waiting for the kids to go through the Betty Crocker Cookie Book and make their choices. I may try to make a pie too this year, but I have never made one before. The pumpkin roll sounds fabulous and right up my alley.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

My mother gave me the steps.. so I am going to do that...
The pumpkin roll is something I actually do know how to make... I have made it for years... everyone loves it..
Very easy..
So how is Zach's "friend".. i think it is soo cute .. Nick has a new girlfriend.. actually his second one.. she is very nice.. on the honor roll .. I hope he sticks with her.. he has A LOT of friends

Liz & Ava said...

Just dropping by to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! Have a busy day planned.

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Liz, how is Ava?

redmaryjanes said...

The friend is over right now as we speak and she seems to be really nice. I met her Mom this morning and she is nice also. They are playing monopoly.

redmaryjanes said...

I would love that pumpkinroll recipe. timnkim@gmail.com if it's easy to type out.

~Amy~ said...

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! Things are a little slow moving today...we had a huge Christmas party here last night...got pretty wild! ;) I hope you all have a great Christmas and I can't wait to hear stories and see pics! hugs and kisses all around!

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

It's on it's way...
You will love me after this one.. and everyone will want you to give them the secret...LOL..
It is sooo silent here..
John took all the dogs..
Nick, Colton and Garret(John's nephew) are still sleeping.. they stayed up all night playing that guitar game..
I have been trying to clean and get a list together to go get stuff today..

redmaryjanes said...

Merry Christmas Amy! I remember the wild parties. I'm glad to hear that you are having a great time this year.

redmaryjanes said...

It's not quiet here. Eli is watching the Grinch, Tyler has the neighbor boy over, Zach has his friend over and Kate and I are trying to figure out what cookies we are making.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Did you get the email???
You will probably have to make two.. cause once the kids get a bite.. they will eat the whole thing...LOL

redmaryjanes said...

Yes, I got it. I'm just looking at it. Kate my step-daughter is saying that pumpkin rolls are fabulous and she's volunteered to make it with me. I'm going to have to buy some cream cheese and pumpkin pie filling.

Thank you for the recipe!

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

That sounds like a plan...
Kate will have fun..
If she has had them then she knows they are awesome..
How old is Kate?
Does she get to stay with you until after Christmas?
It only takes a small amount of pumpkin

redmaryjanes said...

Kate is 15. She will be here until Christmas mid-morning and then she is going back to her Moms. I think that pumpkin roll will be perfect.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

How fun...
Is the weather bad there?? Are you going to get snow.??
KyLee had some delays last night flying into Indiana..
But she is on her way to go visit my parents and my grandmother..
Her dad's family live right near my family

redmaryjanes said...

We are having some warmer weather and all of the snow is melting. It kind of stinks though because the kids wanted to skate on the lake, but it's all slushy now. So KyLee is from your first marriage?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

KyLee's dad and I never got married.. We were Highschool sweet hearts.. and still are really good friends...
He is married and his new wife has two older kids... so he is also a Grandfather...
LONG STORY..
But KyLee is blessed to have parents who really talk and care about her so much.. we all get along great...

redmaryjanes said...

I get along really well with my ex too. It's best for the kids.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Well my husband is wanting me to finish getting ready.. have to go by fedex to pick up a few items that are Christmas presents.. Go to the store to make goodies.. finish getting the doggies presents..Go to Hallmark.. I hope they still have the Chinese ornament.. like the one you have... love it.. Have to have it...
and get a few more presents.. and pick up doggies..
Have fun baking.. I will be over to sample all the goodies...LOL..
I will be posting tomorrow my goodies.. Hope they turn out GREAT...
If you have time.. take a picture.. I would love to drool...LOL

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

The kids are what matter the most...
Had some up's and down's but my kids LOVE John sooo much .. he is the best thing for all of us..
Wish his ex was like the rest of us...
It is sooo sad... John is awesome. and his ex is out there..
He hasn't seen his daughter in almost 2 years..

redmaryjanes said...

I will take a photo. Have a wonderful day Kim!

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...
