Merry Christmas

We went to mass yesterday.... Jay took the kids at 3 PM, I stayed home with Luke and the dog and started dinner, we had dinner and opened gifts and then I went to 10 PM mass alone....I bawled on the way there when this stupid song came on the radio that for some reason always makes me think of my dad...its a frickin rap song...lol.... "I'll be missing You" by Puff Daddy, I highlighted the parts that make my cry...yesterday they made me just bawl! I even ended up crying during mass, but I wasn't sobbing like I did in the car. Good thing I got there 30 minutes early so I had time to collect myself....bad thing was I had Jay's van so I had to scrounge around for fast food napkins to blow my nose and wipe my eyes...I always have kleenex in my van!

Verse one: puff daddy
Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life aint always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words cant express what you mean to me
Even though youre gone, we still a team
Through your family, Ill fulfill your dream (thats right)
In the future, cant wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When its real, feelings hard to conceal
Cant imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death

Chorus: faith evans
Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
Ill be missing you
Thinkin of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
Ill be missing you

[puff] I miss you big

Verse two: puff daddy
Its kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smilin down (eheh)
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again
In my heart is where Ill keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need (uh-huh) to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts big I just cant define (cant define)
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the 6, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Makin hits, stages they receive you on
I still cant believe youre gone (cant believe youre gone)
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living youre life, after death

Chorus[faith evans]

somebody tell me why

Interlude: faith evans
On that morning
When this life is overI know
Ill see your face

Outro: 112
Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
Every night I pray, every step I take[puff] every day that passes
Every move I make, every single day [puff] is a day that I get closer [puff] to seeing you again
Every night I pray, every step I take[puff] we miss you big... and we wont stop
Every move I make, every single day[puff] cause we cant stop... thats right
Every night I pray, every step I take Every move I make, every single day

[puff] we miss you big

ANYHOW....we had greek salads, steak, scallops, mac and cheese (Will's request), sauteed mushrooms, and baked potatoes then cheese cake and brownies for dessert, after diner we opened a few gifts....did ANYONE hear Grant SCREAM when he opened the PS3???? I swear it was just like the comercial for Sears with the guy screaming it it...it was HILARIOUS! Luke was more into his gifts than I thought he would be!

Jay and the kids spoiled me......2 sets of alphabet dies for my diecut machine, a set of circle dies (from Brett), and baby pages idea book, adhesives, 2 sweatshirts, a pair of sweatpants, 2 long sleeve t-shirts (brown and lime), socks (I needed those desperately!), underwear (I needed those too!), new pillows (4) for the couch in the living room (we got new couches in late Sept and I never got pillows for them).

The kids seemed really excited about everything they got.....as far as their big things....Em and Brett got cellphones, Hannah an 8.2 MP camera, 1 G memory card and printer, Grant, Jacob and Cade Nintendo DS/with games and guitar hero III....Sophia got TONS of Bratz stuff, Will got a guitar and it seems like every Deigo toy on the market, Luke LOVES this cool babystage that plays music and has a mirror (he loves looking at himself)!

Jay made breakfast.....bacon, eggs, left over steak (reheated), toast, juice and he did the dishes!

It is just after 1 PM now....my mom is coming at 3 PM....she is bringing a prime rib roast, stuffing and desserts...I have a ham, and am making green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, cranberry salad, rolls...I might make some corn! Should have bought some alcohol...I will probably need it!

Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you are surrounded by those you love!

I plan to go shopping tomorrow morning to get some after christmas deals anyone else????

I forgot...Jay bought a COOL little bar table for our kitchen Sunday night and assembled it yesterday...it is so cute! It only seats 4, but it is going to be great to have an extra "counter" space in the kitchen.

Hi there,

We're thinking of moving to Cinci. We unschool/relax homeschool and are more or less secular--is there a group of similar folks out there or no? I'm at haded at verizon.net if you'd like to email. Hope to hear from you, have enjoyed your blog. Jane
