Thoughts and Prayers

We send out our thoughts and prayers to Indianapolis Colts' Coach Tony Dungy and family on the death of his son James.

We finally decorated our ex floor model display pre-lit Christmas Tree that I put up last week (my brother bought it for us last year and paid $4 after his discount!). We decided to dress the tree with small items from our bedrooms (because I didn't feel like dragging out the containers of Christmas decorations). Boy did we decorate!

Talk about bling! It sparkles with cubic zirconia and simulated gemstone rings; chandelier earrings; crystal, pearl and beaded bracelets . I even hung a couple pendant necklaces. Nice!

Jacob added several support bracelets (from his collection of 40), dog tags, an Austin Powers button, an action figure, candy canes, two handmade ornaments, a shark tooth necklace and a hang loose Santa ornament (both from Hawaii). And to top it off...a Cubbies hat. Perfect!

Jacob says this is the best tree we've had...and I'd have to agree. Cutting down our own tree on a Christmas Tree Farm has provided many memories...but we will always remember our ghettofabulous (half) pre-lit Christmas Tree. (The top 1/3 of the tree just burned out!)

Addicting little booger

Play this addicting game from if your thinker's working properly...and you have plenty of time to waste. Who doesn't, right?

Holiday Eating Tips

(According to Melinda the most important rule is NEVER let your food touch!)

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine single-malt scotch, it's rare. In fact, it's even rarer than single-malt scotch. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an "eggnog-aholic" or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it!!!! Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. If you can’t decide or if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all costs. I mean, have some standards!

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Reread tips: start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner.

Draw a House

Draw a house and discover what your drawing says about you. Add
your house to my street...there's plenty of room. Come back and visit the houses on Laugh Loud Street.

Here's what my house says about me...

Your house tells the world that you ought to be a leader.
You are a freedom lover and a strong person. You are shy and reserved. (huh?)

If you've drawn a cross on each of windows (and I did), you always want to live alone (so true! want a husband, but he'll have to live in his own home. I am sole owner of the remote and will not let go of that control!) .
You are very tidy person. There's nothing wrong with that because you're pretty popular among friends.
Your life is always full of changes.
Once you have a problem, you need a friend with you. Your life is always full of changes.
You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible.
You love excitement and create it wherever you go.
You see the world as it is, not as you believe it should be.

You added a flower into your drawing. The flower signifies that you long for love.
It also safe to say that others don't see you as a flirt.
You are self-confident and happy with your life. :D

I love living in a small town

I love it! I complain about "rush hour" traffic...then wait 5 minutes for it to clear. I go shopping and bump into five friends. I don't pay an outrageous amount of rent for an apartment (a room) so small that I could use the bathroom and cook at the same time. Best of all...I don't have to hoof it to work like 7 million New Yorkers! God bless ya!

Isn't It Strange...

*Isn't it strange how a $20 bill seems like a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping?

*Isn't it strange how two hours seems so long when you're at church, and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie?

*Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?

*Isn't it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular book?

*Isn't it strange how everyone wants front row tickets to concerts or games, but they do whatever is possible to sit in the last pew at church?

*Isn't it strange how we need to know about an event for church weeks ahead so we can put it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for last minute events?

*Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share with others, but how easy it is to learn, understand, extend and repeat gossip?

*Isn't it strange we believe everything magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible?

*Isn't it strange everyone wants a place in heaven, but they don't want to believe, do or say anything to get there?

Would you like fries with that?

I saw an interesting piece this morning on MTV (crammed between Kanye and Mariah.) A band rigged their tour bus to run on vegetable oil. They raided dumpsters behind restaurants and filled up their that illegal? They wouldn't use oil from fast food restaurants because it was as thick and black as motor oil (yucky!). They only used vegetable oil from fine restaurants because it was so clean. As a result they saved thousands. And imagine the time and driving at the same time :D

Old Ladies

Two little old ladies were attending a rather long church service.
One leaned over and whispered, "My butt is going to sleep."
"I know," replied her companion, "I heard it snore three times."

What in the Name of Sam Hill...

I've received the Elf snowball fight a few times now. Apparently I'm not the only one addicted to indoor snowball fights with fictional characters. Plus, I just can't get enough Elf... (I love that Will Ferrell!) I could quote that movie all day long! But that's another blog. Play the game already you son of a nutcracker!...and if you win all three levels you receive a "Certificate of Excellence" from Buddy himself! Oooooh! What's a certificate of excellence? I want one!

Why not ME?

Have you ever left your car door unlocked? Of course...we all have. Have you ever returned to your car to find a $15,000 diamond ring on the front seat? Me either! Man! Do I wish I still had a car to leave unlocked!

Bad Day For The Colts

The Colts were on a 13 game winning streak. But San Diego turned it around. At the half San Diego was winning 16-0. But then the Colts came back over the Chargers. But then San Diego came back with a field goal. Then they kicked it off then the Colts fumbled it. Chargers recovered then the Chargers ran a 68 yard touchdown. The final score was 26-17. Now the Colts are 13-1. But still lead the NFL. Jacob

Dalhart Animal Wellness Group and Sanctuary (D.A.W.G.S)

A group of elementary students (plus their teacher and her husband and daughter) run this "no kill" shelter. They started out with a handful of unwanted dogs and have now sheltered/adopted out thousands.
The land D.A.W.G.S currently uses was donated to them, but the town of Dalhart, Texas is evicting them in a few short months due to the noise level (only yards away from a cemetery).
These selfless children have poured their lives into saving animals that adults have thrown away. Studies prove kids + caring for (and loving) animals= increased responsibility and decreased delinquency. Won't you help? You can also read about this organization in Best Friends. I've also linked D.A.W.G.S on our sidebar.
