hey ya all, hows your month going so far, for those who celebrate the birthday of the christ child or better know as christmas are you all ready? is your decorations up, have you baked all the goodies you want to got presents to wrap or already done with those? o.k now you all want to know why in the world i am asking such stupid questions, its like this, yes i celebrate christmas, no only have about half of the decorating done although the house is beginging to look like the griswalds house in christmas vacation no baking has been done, few presents have been bought none wrapped in otherwords helppppppppppppppppppppppppppp. today is december 10th that means i have 2 weeks yup 2 measly little weeks to get done. still working on some gifts, had a order to do so of course that is coming first(almost done thanks be to the angels watching over me) why oh why am i so far behind, a few years ago alright many years ago i had presents bought by end of october( my kids knew they would not get the latest gadget, wether or not they begged to be good , some years santa grandma would break down and buy the 'must have' gift only to find it was forgotten come feb when the next must have comes out, you see i remember being a child a few(alright many) years ago and i knew that if i was very very good santa always brought me what i wanted, that was until my 11th birthday year.which will remain annonamous i begged for the original barbie house, you know the one i speak of, THE original cardboard one with lots of cool furniture ect. well i was soooooooo sure santa was going to bring it to me cause i had asked ever so nicely(and yes back them we at 11 did still believe sometimes) for that wonderful house for my barbie dolls which i loved playing with(11 year olds then are like 6 year olds now) i hoped and hoped and just KNEW i was going to get it , that is until the disaster of that awful year happened. you see its like this , i hada little sister who was the worlds biggest snoop and since she often would go sit quietly in places and not bother anyone my mom and dad never dreamed that this sweet innocent child was in fact the snooping police, sent to spoil all the dreams of good girls and boys. ah yes she struck that fateful day. i was talking to mom about how i hoped santa would bring that to me and she was sitting there listening while cooking dinner. she asked me to go find miss snoop and get her ready for dinner. and while i did this and found her she asked me if i really wanted to know if i was going to get my barbie house. i said oh yes i want to let santa know, well out of the mouths of bratty little sisters she leaned over and said i saw it, i said saw what
she said i saw your barbie dream house in the closet, i said nooooooooooooooooooooooooo oh nooooooooooooooo how could you, she said shhhhh don't tell mom cause you will get in trouble for snooping HA we all knew who that was but of course i didn;'t want to get in trouble so come christmas day i acted very suprised that i recieved that wonderful gift from the jolly old elf himself moral of this story, there isn;t one, just thought you might like a laugh but this truly did happen and i don't know yet if i have forgive my snoopy sister yet hehe jk of course i have and we have laughed many times over the years when we saw our own daughters become snoopy and also sons in my case. in years past i would buy the gift wrap it and store it in the garage, course that was when they didn't have keys to the garage or house as they were sosmall and little. in keeping with this posting please share with all of us what your most awesome wonderful fantastic present that the hohoho jolly old fat man gave you, i think besides the doll house my most favorite thing was the year when we 3 girls(and not niss snoopy as she was so small yet!!!!!)was the year when mom and dad tricked us, see my father built things, and my mom had been asking and asking for a new coffee table and end table, one day we went out into his shop andasked what those big boxes were. seems santa had a helper this year. he told us that since mom wanted her furniture wwell he had made it for her yea right dad and would we mind very much having our name put on then she would think was for us and when we opened the boxes she would have been suprised well was not her that was suprised was us you could have heard us clear across the city when we opened those boxes, see they didn't have furniture in it but sting ray bicylcles. THE top ride in those days , what a wonderful suprise that was.
