On the second month of 2008 my favorite blogger gave to me - two boys in gloves (okay, so we ALL wore gloves... and boots... and as many layers as possible - it's cold at the cabin!)
On the third month of 2008 my favorite blogger gave to me - leaves falling by the tens (of thousands... I don't know why the tree won't drop its leaves in the fall like a normal tree - we have a fun but messy spring)
On the sixth month of 2008 my favorite blogger gave to me all the kids at the sand dunes playing (June is HOT around here, but we had to try out a new vehicle at the rental place... only got it stuck twice!)
On the seventh month of 2008 my favorite blogger gave to me - seven people camping but not swimming... (too cold)
One the eighth month of 2008, my favorite blogger gave to me one maid left at home while other were off at school a-milking (hey, they had milk with their lunch - you want Keats go read another blog!)
On the ninth month of 2008 - my favorite blogger gave to me - the nine year old advancing. (Yay! P is a Bear scout!!!)
On the tenth month of 2008 my favorite blogger gave to me - great weather we are keeping
On the eleventh month of 2008 my favorite blogger gave to me - the thankful turkey to quash the griping!

What? seriously, I missed another Tag? - one of these days I’ll be able to just tell people to refer to old posts because I’m pretty sure that I deserve the title of Tag Queen... I’m sure there’s a crown out there with my name on it!!! Chelsi has given me the task (opportunity) to share with you 4 things about a number of things... hmmm, except I’m not even going to look - so here you get whatever comes off the top of my head - and just because I haven’t been very Christmasy lately - we’ll theme it:
4 things I dread about the Holiday Season: Decorating, Wrapping, Un-decorating, Calories.
4 things I love about the same aforementioned time of year: Food, Family, Peace, Warm blankets on a cold night
4 things I want for Christmas (but am probably not getting): built in shelves, a really nice book light that will last for more than a month, did I mention the shelves?, and world peace.
4 places I’ve spent far too much time and/or $ this past few weeks: Amazon.com, CostCo, Target, WalMart
4 places I’ve gotten paper cuts during the wrapping process: Thumb, wrist, other thumb, “tall man” finger.
4 reasons to be grateful this year in particular: Hubby still has a good job that is supposedly “recession proof”, My kids are all reasonably healthy - and now old enough to know what to do when the flu hits so the clean-up is a lot more tolerable, Junk food consumed in the days prior to, including, and immediately following a national holiday is magically calorie free, I have friends and family who allow me to live in my fantasy world with all of my delusions
4 people I’m sure will be happy to just see their name in print and not worry too much about the whole “tag” aspect of this thing: Janet, Laura, Nanny Goat, and... You - yeah, you know who you are... don't look the other way :)
4 favorite (calorie-free) Christmas Treats: Caramel Dipped pretzels coated with White chocolate and Sprinkled with crushed Candy Canes, Peanut Butter Fudge, Sher's Ginger Cookies, and Candy Cane Kisses.
4 things I worry about too much at Christmas-time: a well-decorated house, being "fair" in my gifting, making all those wonderful yummy treats, getting to all the concerts and parties.
4 things I wish we could spend more time on: Christ, Giving, Service, Family
4... oh never mind... that's enough 4 now!
