After Roberts we headed to Home Depot. I hate this store on regular days! They had sold out of the items my mom wanted to buy. Next store please.
Next, we went to Shopko. I'm afraid this store is on my bad list now. I probably won't go beck on Black Friday. The product that I wanted was sold out by 6:30. I found some really cute stuff, like cloths on sale so I wasn't too upset. Then we got into line. We stood in line for 2 hours. Not impressed. I was feeling a bit hungry by then, but we needed to go on.
Then it was to Deseret Book. I love that store, the atmosphere was so quiet and peaceful. They had soft Christmas music in the background. The store was busy, but not packed. I wanted to take some of the spirit I felt in the store and bottle for my last store...
(Darth Vader music please) Wal-Mart. They had $6 movies. My husband loves to watch movies. It's more of a hobby than a pass time. Really, I'm not kidding. So, while I was there my mom and I split a breakfast sandwich for McDonald's and away we went. It's wasn't to bad except in the electronic department. That was scary. I didn't go to the toy department, so maybe that was bad too.
Now I'm home and I feel good about my shopping. I still want to check online for some items, but I can do that at my leisure. My family is all asleep and I am taking a moment to blog. Yea. I saw a quote today that I do want to keep in mind this season.
"The season is not about presents, but rather His presence"
I liked that. Oh yea, my parents watch my kids last night while I saw "Twilight". That will be tomorrows post!

I love this picture of McKayla because it shows what a great imagination she has. She brought this outfit to me and asked me to make her beautiful. She wanted to be a dancing princess. I think it is great!
McKayla likes and dislikes all sorts of crazy things. So, here is a list just about McKayla.
Favorite Foods: fried rice, hot dogs, pudding, bananas, yogurt, and anything chocolate.
Favorite movies: Just about anything animated. She rotates through all of our movies on a regular basis. Princesses are very high on the list.
Favorite Sayings: "Are you kidding me?" "But you want to." "You're my hero."
Places to go: Anywhere but home.
Colors: Pink or what ever she feels like.
Dislikes: Cleaning her room, washing her hair, and going to bed.
Drinks: She loves soda pop. She only gets this when we go out to eat, so it's a treat. She also likes milk and juice.
This is my crazy, but lovable child.

Now about my brain. I think I am losing it. Last night, Chad and I stayed up late watching TV and then I wanted to read a book. I turned off the light at 1:00am. I couldn't sleep. I tossed and turned, but sleep was not happening. Not to worry, at 2:00am McKayla woke up crying because she wet the bed. Then Ariana wanted to eat at 2:30am. Then McKayla climbed into bed with us from about 3:30-4:30am. Oh yea, then Ariana needed to eat again at 5:00. Then I needed to get up for church so no sleeping in for me. Rats! I know in some far distant future I miss these nights with my kids, but today is not it. I feel like I have done pretty good all day, until about 5:15pm. Now I am ready for a nap. I don't think I'll get it, but maybe if I am a good girl Santa will bring me some sleep and sanity for Christmas.

Grandma came up to Idaho this year for my brother Jayme's wedding. She came to our house and McKayla shared all of her toys with her. It was very cute.
My grandma has been there for us kids as long as I can remember. She always has a peice of advice or quick wit to pass on. I hope you had a great day granny.
Below is a Thanksgiving pumpkin shot. I thought it was cute.

We bundled up Ariana after we got done swimming. She was cold.
McKayla always tries too hard to smile. I try to tell her to relax and nothing happens.
Here is Chad and both girls entering the pool. Notice that McKayla is getting in by herself.
