Don't forget...

Because I don't want to forget these moments:

Keira is scared of the real Santa and of fake elves.  Apparently she is also now scared of toy Santas as well.  And Santa ornaments.  My mom has a small tree in the living room that is decorated with only Santas.  Keira does not like this tree.  Yesterday, Mom had the twins because they have colds (which they graciously shared with me).  Anyway, there is basket of Christmas toys that can be played with under supervision (plastic snowglobes, Santa dolls, etc.)  Keira was immediately scared of the two Santa dolls, so my mom told Colin to follow her and they would put the dolls away so Keira wouldn't have to be scared anymore.  Colin said ok, and started to follow my mom.  My mom suddenly heard screaming.  She turned around, and saw Colin chasing Keira around, trying to touch her with the Santa.  Sneaky little fellow.

Mom called me yesterday, during the twins' naptime.  She said I would never guess where she found Colin.  At once, it dawned on me that Colin is supposed to be in the playpen, napping.  Apparently, he climbed out of the pen and into my nephew's crib.   Where he then found himself stuck.  I think my dreams of having the twins in their cribs until they turn five have been crushed.

It's not that my husband is anti-Christmas, he just is grinchy sometimes. ;)  But on Saturday, we watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation together.  And on Sunday night, he turned on my other favorite Christmas movie, White Christmas. And actually sat and watched part of it with me.  However, when I suggested we branch out and watch other musicals together, I got a very nasty look.  Hee hee hee.

On my birthday, I was serenaded with three different versions of Happy Birthday by my three beautiful children.  Connor sang the entire song.  Keira sang "Happy Mommy" over and over.  Colin sang "Happy" and clapped. Then they ate their dinner of french toast sticks, while I dined on my favorite enchilada meal from my favorite Mexican restaurant. (Keith surprised me with dinner.)

I have to laugh with your post, specially that you dream your kids sleeps in cribs until five.

Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of pas…

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

I saw …

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.



The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
