Ten on Tuesday

1. I sometimes think about becoming a Jehovah's Witness so that I can stop celebrating holidays and birthdays. I seriously LOVE all the kids in our life, and we are so blessed that Jackson and Tyler have so many friends and are so loved, that being said, we seriously haven't had a weekend without a birthday party since September, most weekends we have two. Now a lot of the parties are only for one child, so it isn't even something Pat and I can split up and benefit from because we are always with a child trying to do something entertaining with them since they weren't invited to the party, instead of taking turns having some time away from the children. Add in the holidays now, and I am about to lose my mind. Plus since we have to celebrate the holidays with different people, on different days, it is just exhausting trying to plan it all. Seriously, does the Jehovah Witness church allow you to drink???

2. I won tickets to The Nutcracker. SOOOOOOOO excited to take Tyler. I think she is going to LOVE IT! These are the types of activities I would like to have time to do throughout the holiday season.

3. I also want to draw names next year for our family Christmas. I think buying everyone something is exhausting and stupid since most of us just do gift cards, so it is pretty much like buying your own gift, blah blah blah! I will happily buy for the kids, but the adults, do we REALLY need that much stuff?

4. I bought a new nail polish at Target today, and it didn't make it home with me. SAD!

5. I want to make tamales. I think I am running out of days and time to do such a daunting task. BUT, instead of feeling like a failure, I will try next year, or maybe in the Spring when I have less to do.

6. I wrote a note to Jackson's teacher about him missing school on Monday because of the Polar Express, and I apologized profusely. I got an email back from him stating that it was fine if he missed school because he is a "stellar student" but that other kids are missing a week and they need it. I SERIOUSLY think Jackson has this woman wrapped around his little finger. She just gushes about him all the time.

7. We were at Borders the other day, Jackson sat down, opened If You Take a Mouse to the Movies, and read the whole thing. I had tears in my eyes. He did a better job than some of my fourth graders did. He never ceases to amaze me.

8. Tyler is currently obsessed with Victorious:Freak the Freak Out, Shake It Up, Hannah Montana, iCarly, Wizards of Waverly Place, and Sonny with a Chance. Please tell me where my little girl went??? How is she already watching shows where the stars are in rehab and posing for Playboy?

9. Holly Robinson Peete and Hugh Hefner tweeted me this week! By far my most famous shout outs so far. Well, Howie Mandel might be a little more famous????

10. I am officially addicted to twitter. ADDICTED!
