Just 'Cause

Good Morning! And depending when you read this, Good Afternoon and Good Night.

My husband thinks I am on edge so his statement this morning was, "I am going to keep pushing because you are close to the edge and it shouldn't take much to get you to explode". Thanks baby! Too bad I am not close to the edge and just totally laughing at his futile attempts to goad me.

Kids woke up at 7am. I was DEAD asleep and quite shocked by both events. But I have already made breakfast (um Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, count, right?), coffee, unloaded dishwasher, loaded dishwasher, booted my laptop, and got on here.

I picked up a Penguin and a Santa mug with lids for Doug and I for the holidays to drink our coffee and Aubrey asked this morning, "Mamma, when I grow can I have coffee in a Penguin Mug with coffee, please?" I said, "Sure, when you are 21". I need to start keeping that list about when she can do what. Like I am pretty sure I told Aubrey she could have gum when she was 15. Drive when she was 20. Coffee when she was 25 (but odviously coffee in a penguin cup when 21). Wear a bra when she is 15.

We started our advent calendars today! I am hoping this will be a step in stopping the "Is it Christmas today" questions... but probably not.

This is from the Blessings Journal:
"Blessings are ignored in the hustle of the season,
So pause each day to acknowledge the reason
And jot down a blessing that you feel is best.
On Christmas share how you are been truly blessed."

"Count your blessings, name them one by one.
Count your blessings see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done."

Check out the sidebar for a running list...

I hope you have a great day and don't get that close to the edge :)

Penguin & Santa mugs, Christmas frog, Giant ball...y'all do have it all!

By the way, have Doug stand near you and close your eyes for as long as you can. You'll eventually start swaying, and then you can officially fall off the edge.

Unless he decides to catch you.
