~Dracen said he wanted a pair of cowboy boots for Christmas. I said, "I wonder what size you'd need in cowboy boots"? He replied, "Santa will know...If he's really magic."
~He also wanted to know why the foster child I picked the angel off the angel tree to buy a gift for didn't get stuff from Santa. I tried to think of a good answer but I mostly stumbled around my words.
~I bought the big size jar of Nutella yesterday at the grocery store. Seriously? I need an intervention!
~We are going to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra tomorrow in Greenville, SC. I'm excited since I've never seen them before!
~Does anyone know where I can buy a trash can for my kitchen that is Dachshund proof? Because Brisco Darling can't seem to keep his nose out of the one I've got! He knocked it over again twice yesterday. I also caught him digging at the end of the house after he pawed the plastic drain pipe apart from the gutters. He apparently doesn't believe the elves are watching.
~Devin had somehow managed to break his big binder for school in half and had been carrying it around like that, with no cover. I finally remembered to buy him a new one this week and he didn't want it. I had to force him to put his stuff in it. Then a girl at school took a pink paint maker and wrote his name in ginormous letters across the front with the little breast cancer awareness ribbon at the bottom (which I thought was a nice touch). He said, "I need a new binder! I cannot carry this thing around like this! " I told him to either get over it or get creative and cover it up somehow.
~Dracen made a little drawing at school of these little houses with faces on them and called it "The People House Town." Charlie and I thought it was really creative and said he should take it further and submit it to Disney or Nickelodeon because it's a lot better than some of that stuff they put on t.v. Charlie continued to encourage him, telling him how if it was a hit, he could eventually sell it to them for big bucks. He said he would never do that. Spoken like a true artist! "Never sell out out to the man!"
~I'm getting my "hair did" at 8:30 this morning so I must sign off!
Happy Friday, Y'all! :)
