My nephews and my boys LOVE to play this video game...Mario Kart. It's all they ever want to do...and right now, while it's winter and cold it's fine. Frank even got in on the action...well really Dru asked him to play for him and so he did. It was a good day and they'll get to go to their cousin's house in a few days and I'm sure they will play that at their house too...hope their Aunt and Uncle are ready for this...cause I'll be to busy at a Seahawk game to worry about them. ;)

So here is my endeavour to full fill Lee's hunger. They turned out really good and I might make them again someday. I just really don't like the smell of cooked oil in the house...smells too much like working at the Arches. These are the corn dogs.I figured since I was dealing with the oil and making corn dogs I might as well make some hush puppies...these are them cooking. They were very good dipped in a mixture of honey and mustard, or just honey. Either way...very good and I ate way too many...again. The finished product. They are bigger than I remembered them. For some reason I remember them being smaller...oh well. They did the job.
Well that was my endeavour today and it turned out well. Frank thought everything tasted good and that's what counts in the end right?

It was fun to see the boys hole up in their rooms playing with their toys and enjoying themselves and not hearing too much fighting.

Here are my boys Christmas morning! Ian and Lee were up early...well for me anyway. They were up at 7 AM....Dru didn't get up until 8:30 AM. The rule at our house is when you get up in the morning you have to come STRAIGHT to our room. And when we all are up (we don't wake anyone up...they each get to wake on their own) we all go together to see if Santa came. This year it absolutely killed Ian and Lee to wait that long and I thought it was pretty funny to be honest with you. Dru did finally wake up and we started Christmas...
Frank got this from the boys and he's very excited! Games I think was the theme this year...board games and video games alike. Ian is excited about this game...look really hard and you'll see!!

So Santa left this for Ian. Dru was left with a Batman Cave...Yeah Joker and Penguin..much awaited characters!! Doing the typical dad/Santa thing on Christmas Eve.Santa left this for Lee...Eli loved his gift from Santa.Santa was good with the stockings too! He even left one for Charlie who really likes the squeaky toys!! The end result before Christmas morning...much anticipated!
All in all we did well for our kids...and for some reason we still didn't make it to bed before midnight! And we really tried to plan it so we were and made it so we didn't really have much to do. Normally we are wrapping gifts and what not but this year we got it all done, what we didn't plan on was the setting up of Santa's gifts...and let me tell you Lee and Dru's took some time...a lot of time really. I think next year we'll do the same (meaning get everything done early) but just remember that we won't get to bed before midnight...I'm letting that go...just not possible!

I wish my boys didn't think they were daredevils and could do whatever they want with out getting hurt. No one listens to me...
Guess it's not far from the ground but still...I wish they wouldn't do things like this cause I can see my future is going to be spent in the ER the older they get...which doesn't sound like fun..but that's just me and I'm weird like that.
Hope everyone has a good day!

They tried to cap it off and weld the cap to it so we could turn our water on but water is still dripping out and they can't get it welded. So Frank isn't quite sure where to go from there and I'm no help either...we may just have to call a professional.
Frank had to cut a hole in our bedroom wall that we share with our bathroom. At least it's not a huge hole. Here is the pipe we, and I say we like I did a bloomin' thing with it today, they were trying to cap tonight. With this piece of wall cut out we also discovered that there were nasty critters living there...I have no idea if they still are...I don't want to think about it.Ever wonder what your tub looks like...well now you know. Looks like this!
Life is just TOO fun right now...tomorrow should be fun and Saturday if it goes that long.
