Erina & Uncle Kevin role playing one of the jokes.
Time to open presents!
Christmas Day, before the storm ;-)

Sunday was a rainy, grey & cold day here in Northern California. Did my girls get bored? No way! They put on a play with costumes and all. I just love how creative they are.
It all started with Erina waking up early in the morning. Considerate as she is, she stayed in her bed and read poems by Shel Silverstein. While doing so, she had the great idea that she could make a play with her sister based on one of the poems. Once Grace was awake, they picked a poem, changed some details (the original poem has a bird & snowman in it... and nobody wanted to be a bird), copied the entire thing so each of them would have a copy, designed costumes, made tickets and set up the stage.
It was just so cute! I know I'm biased because I'm their mother... but listen to the inflection in their voices, they're giving it their all!
Forgot something... scroll down to the bottom of the page to turn off the music before you watch, thanks.Snowman, by Erina & Grace
Since I had to take this little video with my old camera, I also finally downloaded all the pictures Erina & Grace took over the last few months. But that will be another blog post, lol!

Hear me screaming... "CHRISTMAS IS COMING TOO SOON!!!!". I have to bake cookies, make my famous Christmas bark, get a teacher present, finish shopping for my girls, visit Santa, mail out my cards, send out presents to far away folks, make a photo album for Brian and go to my kids school choir performance. Oh and never mind the regular stuff like laundry, grocery shopping and eating :-D!
Maybe I should growl at people like my little Grace did to me yesterday:
This is what I probably looked like at Dessa & Brett's wedding reception. I was a dancing fool... it was a great feeling, like back in the days. And I'm usually shy! You know what brings it out in me? Live music! Spencer's band totally rocks and they were so fabulous live.
This is how I strive to be... calm & cute as my Erina. Well, let's face it, I'll never be as cute... but I can work on calm, right?
Ok, gotta run... I smell my burnt toast! I suppose I failed on the eating part already... ah, what a great day it will be.
You think I have mood swings :-D? This post is so vastly different from my last one, isn't it? Oh well, a blog is supposed to be a glimps of my life!

So don't forget to slow down and smell the roses... or in my case find the dew drops. Especially right now, with the holiday season approaching ever so fast and too many things on our lists. Slow down, take a deep breath, go for a walk and look at the beautiful world. Peace to you all!
