I am thankful for.....

Wonderful Christmas Time - Paul McCartney
1.Buyer's Regret is sweeter than Buyer's Remorse(i regret not getting all the deals but i skipped the remorse by not spending more than we have!)

2.Jeremy's raise
3.Snuggle time with my husband and girls in the morning in our bed.
4.Christmas crafts with my girls like snowflakes, countdown chains etc.
5.End of Thanksgiving break.
6.Eternal Families
8.Unconditionally loving Heavenly Parents and Saviour Jesus Christ
9.Thanksgiving dinner where I only have to bring some side dishes and rolls.
10.A working phone( ours was broken from wednesday to friday) sure was quiet. I might break it on purpose.

These are in no particular order

Hope you are all ready for Christmas. It feels like a fake Christmas here in California. Where is the snow, foggy windows, silent snow falling nights, crunching snow under boots, snow angels, snow balls, red noses, spinning tires stuck in snow banks, black ice, ice stuck on windows, silly beanies, deliciously hot cocoa and cider, warm glowing candles, carols, ward parties, sweaters and coats, waking up on christmas to play in snow, sugar cookies etc. ? I could go on and on about my love for Christmas in Utah. I miss you UTAH!

Another Pat on the Back

Well once again I am amazing. The Sexiest Man Alive is Hugh Jackman. I can't help but feel partly responsible for this recognition since he was on my Delicious Man of the Month this year. I read his interview and it made me chuckle. I think it is cute that he has been married for 12 years with two kids and loves his wife. I think it is because he lives in Australia and away from most of the crazy hollywood scene. Plus when you work on stage there are alot of weirdos that you just don't get involved with. Most of them being from the "other" persuasion- if you know what i mean. So I was happy to hear that finally someone other than Brad Pitt and George Clooney made the cover. Now you might be thinking" What is Tanya doing, spending her time reading about the sexiest man alive when she could be doing alot of other things like take the turkey out of the crock pot and get it and Emily to school for the potluck, or get Emily ready for school, clean the house, write a better blog post, comfort a whining Emily, take the curlers out of her hair(yes i have multi-colored velcro rollers in my hair) and finish putting her makeup on?" Well I won't lie to you so I just won't answer the question.

Haven't been into the blogging world

If you know me, then you know that i might just get bored with commitment to something other than kids and husbands and friends. So this blogging thing has become a chore and I just sort of put it aside. I don't really have the time to keep it up since school demands more and so do the holidays and parties and laurel activities, birthdays, visiting teaching, people having babies etc. So I am sorry that this little blog with see less and less of me. Until maybe January. I have about 90 more tutus to make for the boutique that is happening the first two weekends in December. Before you know it Thanksgiving will be here with us stuffing our faces instead of the turkey(it is safer and healthier to have dressing on the side and not stuffing in the bird) and then going back to school after a week long holiday and then christmas comes so fast and kids are doing so much in school and since you just don't want to be left out you insist on helping in every class event. Then you realize that you are napping everyday since you are so tired which makes it harder to catch up since you could have used those hours during the day to work on your projects instead of trying to do them at night where you realize you are still tired at 10:30 even though you took a 2 hour nap. does this sound familiar to anyone out there right now at this time of year? How did I go from carefree and lazy to super busy woman and i don't even have kids in after school activities other than going to the park to play?
