Oh, almost forgot. 13 year old wants a swagway. Click here to enlarge not gonna happen


And Julie said "Futz", "Futz" said Julie.
"Futz around until my return."
The definition of "futz" was something we had yet to learn,
But we tried to do it anyway, anyway,
'Cause Julie, we'll do anything you say.

My dd's bday was yesterday and that was tough enough. No idea what I'm getting her. I snagged a free older Mac book from work. I'm going to put a $40 hard drive in it and give it to ds to watch tv in his room. No other ideas. I'm hoping to take dd on a quick trip to Arizona after xmas to see my sister and niece. Maybe that could be her gift?

All my kids are done, except the littlest's stocking. Started on rest of immediate family. Just put up my tree.

If you'll recall last year I was all bah humbug about doing "Click here to enlarge", but this year I'm really into it (Usually the tree goes up the week before Xmas, lol) cause the 4 yo really gets the concept.

I've done nothing. I am not feeling it at all this year.

I love the build up to Christmas, but not until AFTER THANKSGIVING! Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge

My older daughter sent me the links to boots and jewelry she wants. My oldest just finally moved out again and has asked for a PS4 Battlefront bundle. He's almost 25. Click here to enlarge Nothing yet from my younger son and daughter.

Annie, in my defense, my parents were visiting from their retirement home in the 3rd world, and we haven't had any holidays with them in 3years. My DD, who just had a baby this year, wanted to do Baby's First Christmas while they were here, and what kind of grandmother would I be to deny my first grandchild that?

I've purchased a couple of things. Hopefully I don't forget where I put them before Christmas.

I asked my daughters what they want for Christmas. Molly had no ideas. Kiera wants graphic novels and a creme brulee torch Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge

I'm either raising really frugal kids or kids who think we're flat broke, because my oldest was saying how it would be great to get an itunes gift card for "a lot of money" and I asked her how much "a lot of money" is (thinking she would say $100 or something) and she said,
thirty dollars.

My oldest it is going to take Digital Photography at the community college next semester so I'm looking to get him a camera but I don't want to spend more than 300 bucks and aside from the whole Megapixel think I don't understand a word of what the teacher said when I emailed about a good camera.

I'm also looking at laptops now as that will be graduation, he needs one with better graphics for a few of the games he'd like to play. Plus the one he has is 5 or 6 years old.

Califred, do you have a National Camera Exchange near you? For under $300 you'll probably need a used model.

Okay, I just looked at my website and despite the name they may be just local to me. Click here to enlarge Do you have a store in your area that specializes in cameras and sells both new and used? Because that's what you need, if you don't know what you're doing and you need to buy a camera suitable for a digital photography class.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
