Today Aubrey had a Christmas party at school. Being in the not so Christmas spirit I did not make her cookies that looked like reindeer (Rudolf-- I was corrected by a little boy). Tons of candy came home with her including a goody bag with markers, notebooks, noise makers, pencils YEAH. Well being the great mom I am I sent her to class with 2 bags of
Yes popcorn...it did not have any yummy almond bark on it or sugary coating
Then I was chatting with Aubrey's cute little friend Reese's grandma. Reese's mother is expecting and is due in January so I was asking about her. I said " So will you be able to watch the baby?".......Grandma says..."well she is kind of private but the baby's father will be there and we will of course be at the hospital."
What .....I wasn't asking about watching your daughter give birth.......ugh......
I then quickly said...."OH will you be able to babysit the baby when she goes back to work!"
she said yes and then I had to jump the aid of Kalab who was rearranging the work stations...
What a day!!
will it be better tomorrow?

The week without power has thrown me off my Christmas schedule

I finished this book at the church this week when I had a lot of time to kill..... I started this book and liked it, but if I had a choice of reading and blogging I chose blogging.... I thought it was a cute story about a boy from Florida whose dad tried to sink a casino boat that was dumping all their toilet waste in the ocean and was sent to jail. The young boy (can't think of the boys name -see how much it impacted my life) and his sister tried to catch the owner in the act. I did enjoy it and it is on the Oklahoma Sequoyah Award list. It is a cute story and I did like it.
We made it home!!!! Monday night we tried to stay at our house with no power and it was COLD we could hear trees cracking and falling outside all night. We woke up to such a mess outside. It was just so cold and boring to stay at our house. We tried to go to Wal-Mart to get a few things and it was closed, Buy for Less was closed, Target was running on back up generators so we ran in and bought a few things.... So later that night we headed over to the church to stay with a few other families....We spent 3 nights at the church in Aubrey's class room. I tried to take pictures and the camera needed to be charged..go figure... Oh the things that need power... On Friday our Stake President brought a generator to our house and hooked it up so we went home and spent the night in our own beds... Then today around 12:00am our power flickered and came on!! WhooHoo.......and it is still going.. I am alive and WARM... We still have sooo much to do, we have trees down and the limbs are all frozen to the ground. I am so glad to have my power and feel so bad for those that don't have it yet... I am sooo grateful for all my friends that checked on me or brought me and my family food..
one tree down.....................two trees down......three trees down ..........................................................

So the weather man on koco channel 4 said "We are having a historical storm".
A few days ago men came and cut down tree limbs in our neighbors yard around all the power lines..I was kind of annoyed that they piled all the limbs in our yard...Well today I am happy I could of helped ...I still have power and hopefully it will stay on!!!
I am going to drink more hot chocolate!!!

They don't look great in my photo, but....
my oh my...these are the best
1 cup Peanut butter
1 cup Karo Syrup
1 cup Sugar
6 cups Rice Krispys
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Mix Peanut butter, Karo syrup and sugar over med. heat, melt altogether. Add rice krispys, mix together. Pour into 9x13 pan....while warm sprinkle chocolate chips and butterscotch chips. *hint...if your chocolate chips and butterscotch chips don't melt, get out the hair dryer and melt the beauties......spread the melted chips over the top.....
I think this recipe came from one of my aunts on the Kellett side....I just remember them always being at any party I went to with them......And one of my aunts didn't put any chips on the top and we dipped them in a chocolate fountain.......oh how gooooood

VOLCANO (vŏl-kā'nō) noun, an opening in the earth's crust where melted rock, lava, gases, and ash are thrust onto the land.....(or maybe just baking soda and vinegar with a little red food coloring)

So today when church was over I picked Kalab up from nursery and said goodbye to some friends and went to my car..Because we have guest at our home some of them went home early, so I was there with Kalab and Aubrey, easy enough,... I put Kalab in the car and went home. I went home and there was no Aubrey! I FORGOT Aubrey at church...UH.. What kind of mother am I. I drove back to the church as fast as I could. I ran in and there standing by the bishop's office was Aubrey and Sis Tea. Sister Bianco was on the phone calling Blayne. Aubrey came running down the hall crying "you forgot me" Oh how horrible I felt. On the way home Aubrey asked me if I was worried and I said YES. Then she asked if Daddy was worried and I said YES. I asked if she was worried and she said NO. Hopefully I haven't scared her for life!! I have never left any of my kids anywhere..so again, I want to say how thankful I am living close to the.....

As I was driving in the car today I was thinking of what to post. I started thinking of silly things, so I thought I would make a list of random things I was thinking of
--green lights--I hate to stop
--living close to the church
--school bus --3 kids 3 different schools
--wind--blowing all the leaves to my neighbors yard
--garbage men that come and get my trash if i forget to put it out.
--hot showers and soap
--airplanes-- maybe one day I can get to Ut in a day
and especially for blogging. It has reminded me that you can be thankful for anything!!!!
Today I am thankful for....FRIENDS...I love to get together with my friends. I have not been this close to a group of girls for a really long time. I am so enjoying our time together and learning how they handle life and stress. They are great examples to me of how to live my life in the church. I have watched them with their kids and they are great mothers and are good women .....They ALL are great at keeping there house clean and organized and that is something I need to do better. Maybe that will rub off on me if I hang out with them long enough.
Today in Relief Society our lesson was on Joseph Smith. So today I am thankful for him and the tremendous sacrifice he gave for this church and for me. Because of him I have the Book of Mormon, I have the priesthood in my home. I have the blessings that come from the temple. I have his example of standing firm to his words and never denying that he saw Christ and The Father. I have the example of how to treat others, to be kind and share the gospel. I wish I could explain better how I feel through words my testimony of Joseph Smith and how he has impacted my life.
