One I forgot to post in December

So the camera lasted a whole 2 days!  On the search for another.  Here are the last few from my Nikon...

My 1st Christmas present came early.

This has been up since Thanksgiving weekend, I have been dying to take pictures of it. I do every year for some reason.
Natalie playing around, that's me.
If she would keep her tongue in her mouth she really is a pretty girl.
Awful pic, but it was time for bed.
This is what she wore to the Friday Night Mexican Dinner!

Thank you Karen and Tim!
Can you guess what it is?

Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow!

My very own Rudolph!

This bad mother hadn't bought gloves for the previous 74 degree weather we had.
"Guess what Mom, it's snowing in Tomball! It never snows in Tomball."
This is my favorite picture.
A real snow flake.  You have no idea how exciting this is.
I think I can catch one!
Our house.
Sisterly love even in freezing weather.
"Mom, can we please go in now?  I don't have a proper coat or gloves, I am freezing my hiney off!" (ha, that came up on spell check.)
Did you know when snow melts it is WATER, her favorite toy.
"Mom, did you hear me?  I want to go inside."

***There are no pics of punk #1 she was with her Dad, even though these would have made awesome Christmas card pictures." and thanks to Monica again for your camera.  I so owe you.

Christmas Vacation Troubles. UPDATE

*** UPDATE *** Our vacation was approved! WE ARE GOING TO DENVER!  Thank you Mr. Man for doing the right thing. I was told to apologize but I am not, I was not wrong in my frustration, plus he doesn't read this so I don't have to.

We have been planning a vacation to Denver Co for over a month now.  Our plans consist of us leaving shortly after Christmas and returning shortly after New Years.  Of course all of this revolves around Dimples job.  His boss Mr. Man has now know about this vacation for over a month and has still not given us an answer.  Dimples thinks I am upset with him when I am certainly not.  Mr. Man on the other hand I am very angry with.  He doesn't know that we aren't booking a hotel because we are staying with family, he also doesn't know that we are driving not flying our family of 5.  Because all of that takes at least 2 weeks advance to book.  The hotels booked a long time ago and time shares booked last year.  So common courtesy for Mr. Man would be, work harder when someone hoards their EARNED vacation time for a Christmas with family and if you cannot get your poop in a group and the request gets denied you should offer to buy back that time (which they are not offering this year) instead of the hard working Dimples losing all of it.  To top off my frustration, tomorrow when we finally get our answer if Mr. Man says no it will be too late for him to take most of his stashed time off.  We only have 23 days left of the year and only 12 of those are working days!  So please say a prayer tonight that we will get our vacation time and get to spend Christmas with some of our very large family, my girls will get to see snow, Dimples will get to ski for the first time in 5 years, oh the list could go on and on.

This sweet beautiful girl can make me sad sometimes with just the change of a word.  She is no longer calling me Mommy or even Momma.  Nope now it is just Mom.  She just sounds so grown up.  "Mom, Mom fix it."  "Mom cup pweez."  "Mom I gotta poop."  Ok that one still makes me laugh and she doesn't sound that grown up.  They just grow up too fast.  (that stain in the middle of her shirt is the infamous blue nail polish!)

My Mom!
I don't know whose plate she is fixing, because I know she doesn't eat like that, it must have been for my dad. I also don't know what happened to my font. I just go with the flow.
