Christmas ... Came and went ...

Hey everyone ... um yeah the one person who still reads me ...
I am so so sorry that I have not posted since the first weekend of December -
It seems that life has taken over me.
I used to wake with the gut feeling that I had to blog ...
and then 2 house, 2 babies and a failing business later I am here ...
Trying to live life and stay on top of all the laundry and house cleaning.
Lets see what is happening here ...
Bowden is the love of my life - (Never thought I would say that)
if you have been here before you know that the first 8 months of his life were nothing to be desired, and if it wasn't for the hubby and I NEVER being on the same page at the same time he may not be here! He is freaking adorable! I just want to mush his face with kisses.

Tatum - she is the bell of the ball. One of the funniest kids I have ever met - and I must say beautiful ... she is now potty trained and at 2.5 (30 months) old she was just moved up to the 3 year old class. I do not think it was because she is super smart - because she isn't - (Still doesn't recite the ABC's by herself and sometimes messes up counting to 10 - but she knows all of her colors, shapes, can identify her veggies, knows all of our FULL names and she can sing all kinds of songs ... just not the ABC's - But she is funny as all get out and freaking adorable!

My business - SUCKS - last year at Christmas we had a HUGE party - gave out bonuses, and paid the guys the week of Christmas to stay at home with their families - this year ... No Party, No WORK, No Bonuses, and the last year 38 employee line has been reduced to 6 - yes 6 ... that includes me ... I even fired my dad.

My Hubby Business ... well someone was going to buy him out - it was going to put A LOT of money in our pocket, and a good job for him ... that would have been a literal move ... Sounds okay to me - But it fell through ... the Banks wouldn't help the 10 million dollar a year company buy him ... for a mere 2 million?! Didn't make sense to us ... but they will try again in a year and maybe we will get even more money?! Everything happens for a reason right?!

Okay now onto what all of you come here for ... yep the one of you that still Visits (Thanks Mel) Pictures:
We went to see Santa -

Cheese - this is the best I could do to get them to sit still - hahah

Such a Sutie Pie - Look at those eyes!

The Little things that Santa left Tatum ... he left her a Kitchen as a big gift

The little things that Santa left Bowden ... he left him a tent with balls and a tunnel as his BIG thing!

Bowden being a ham! Love him!

Christmas is just around the corner and like ALWAYS it was SnowBE Christmas week. It ALWAYS is the first weekend of December and as always it was a BLAST! Thank you Melanie for hosting.
BK showing us the ornament that MelBel's mom made us!
The 2009 SnowBE Christmas Group!

Our lovely faces!

SnowBE Necklace that I got for Melanie and Naji - wanted to do it for everyone but they were a little $$$ so maybe everyone will get one for their birthday's?!

Me and Amy hiding from the rain.

We had a blast - it was COLD ... we adopted twin 5 year old girls for our "project" each got a new 16" bike, each got a pair of jeans, with a shirt and a fleece jacket. They both then got a smaller toy that was on their list. It was a blast. Hope you are all doing well!
