Here is one thing I bought Aunt Helen

I bought these frames and mats yesterday for the girls' pictures. Erin came in the fall to take a family picture for me to put on my Christmas card. It was after church and Sigrid was hungry and tired. Astrid had basketball practice in an hour. Erin had worked and not been asleep and I am sure Clayton wanted his momma. Anyway, in the span of about 10 minutes Erin took 46 of the best pictures of us. These were three of my favorites of the girls. The style now is black an white so these individuals I did that way. I also did a family one, and one of just the three girls but I did them in color.
Now Aunt Helen with the rest of the money I am going to buy material and redo my dining room chairs. Who knew three little girls could be so messy when they eat. I will post a picture of those soon for you but I have to find the material first and at the right price.

Here are the cookies the girls made for Santa, themselves and for Pop. Astrid is not in the pictures she had to run off to Pops as soon as she was finished. They are working on puzzles. As I was taking the picture Sigrid spilled her plate and broke all her cookies. She cried for a minute and then was off laughing and playing....sorrows forgotten. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas. We love each of you.

Well...last week Siggie cut her hair at school. She was suppose to be cutting out Joseph's coat of many colors. It is up over her left ear and was very short on the back left side also. She didn't make it to the right side of her hair.....the teacher caught her and was horrified. Her teacher was upset when she told me and couldn't believe I wasn't upset. We went today and the beautician fixed it beautifully. On tuesday's my bosses daughter comes home with us. She just had a new baby and I take the girls to dance after school. Siggie loves to have a friend over....she feels so grown up.

Halloween night

Here are the girls. Astrid a witch....she wouldn't put on any make-up. Ingrid a mermaid with a pixie wig and make-up and Sigrid the flying unicorn. We had a fun and safe night. After trick or treating we came home and made halloween dinner. We had mummy wraps and ghost s'mores.

Muscadine Jelly

Muscadine Jelly is the best. Ingrid and I went to a lady that I work with's house on Monday evening and scavenged what berries we could find. I had to boil and smash them twice to get enough juice for this batch. I have one jar already in the fridge we have been eating and I gave mom 3 or 4 jars.

Suprise for Laura and Eric

Laura and Eric's computer has been on the blitz.
It is old and while they were out visiting I bought
them a new tower. It was not expensive and it will
suffice for Laura and Eric's Christmas present. I
hooked it up but the rest will be up to them.

For Helen

Here in the floor is where I keep all of my magazines. Also is pink material on the nightstand that I pinned together last night for a pink razorback bandana quilt for my boss' new baby. The purple thing hanging off the light is something Astrid sewed for me last year to keep my rings in when I take them off. It has a green "A" a green "heart" and a green "L" for "Astrid loves Laura". My bag from work is there by the bed in case I want to look at that stuff while I am home. My Bible is under the material, and there is a candle, lotion, and triple anitbiotic cream.

Company's coming

Last night we had company. Pop and Gigi came. Eric grilled steak. I cooked corn on the cob, fried squash, pork-n-beans, and pecan pie. I also made me and Gigi homemade salsa. I couldn't wait for the company....I had to test the pie. It was good.

This was on my pillow this morning.....

I am going to type this just as it reads

Dear Mom and Dad,
I would like to tell you something you make me fill like a maid because you make me do some of these things, get the phone, put a trash bag in the trash, put up the dishes, pluge in the internet in, and fold laundry.

Love you smart dauter,

As Erin said to me when I read it to her "if she's the maid what does that make you?"

Oh My Stars

Yall have heard about Ingrid's wonderful performance from Gigi....Well now it is Astrid. She won 1st place in the art contest at school. Her picture was titiled Herd of Horses. Ingrid performs and Astrid draws. I threw in a picture of Siggie just for heck. She has dressed her self and her skirt is on backwards and her shoes are on the wrong feet I am sure....they always are when she does it herself.
