My 10 Favorite Holiday Songs

  1. Rudolf, of course. And only - and I mean ONLY by Gene Autry. All other versions should be banned.
  2. I'm Getting Nothin' For Christmas - because my kids shouldn't. Those demons.
  3. Chrissy the Christmas Mouse - because my demon Krissy asks for it every year!
  4. Frosty the Snowman - because, who doesn't?
  5. Here Comes Santa Claus
  6. Jingle Bell Rock - because it's played at the beginning of Lethal Weapon, which was my introduction to Mel Gibson
  7. Winter Wonderland - its' fun!
  8. All I Want For Christmas is my 2 Front Teeth - it's just the cutest fricken song ever!
  9. My new favorite, which I just found....
    I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

  10. and, of course....

Manic Monday

What is the most expensive meal you've ever eaten? I don't do expensive, so I suppose just a steak dinner at a steakhouse or something.

What is the fastest speed you've ever traveled in a car? around 140 I suppose? It was in a Nova that was owned by a friend of mine that I loved to drive. Someday I will have my own Nova.

What is the highest building you've ever been to the top floor of? I don't think I've ever been up in a really high building. Nothing that I was that excited about anyway.

Bestest Friend & Bestest Sister

Remember my Insurance sucks donkey parts post the other day? Well.. my bestest friend is home from the hospital as of yesterday. I can't even describe how that makes me feel... sick, sad, pissed off... I could go on and on about how I feel, but I pretty much said it all the other day, so I'll just shut up and keep you updated.

Yesterday I went out in the bitter cold and snow to take pictures of my favorite sister's family. (I only have 1 sister though, so it's pretty easy to call her my favorite) I wish we would have had more time - and warmer temps. Everyone was freezing and in a hurry and I just think the pics could have been a little better. They turned out ok, I mean - they turned out good, but ... I don't know, maybe I just am my worst critic.

This one is raw... I have about a dozen of them that my sister has to pick from (I weeded out the closed eyes, looking away, stupid looks already).
But that is my sister's family. Her 4 kids, plus my nephews girlfriend, Mandy, who should be his wife by now. He is the oldest and they've been together since they were in high school. I tried to get a pic of just them together, but by then I was freezing and I took the camera off the tripod and Neil wouldn't cooperate anyway..... if there was a good pic, my shivering hands screwed it up.
But ... I did get the most awesome picture of my absolutley gorgeous nieces! I played around with this one a bit so I could frame it for myself.Aren't they just the most adorable people in the world? The one on the very left is my Goddaughter, so she's more special than the other two (just kidding! Well.... maybe not).
