It's cold out. 7 degrees right now. We're supposed to get a big snow storm tomorrow. We'll see. We're going to watch the Faith girls play basketball tonight at Pillsbury. I heard they're pretty bad.
I just saw that the place where Stephanie worked in Des Moines may be closing. Stephanie didn't like working there. She worked there as a temp. They wanted her to start full-time but she told them no. She said they were messed up. Here's the story.

o holy night

Since it's time for Christmas music, here is what may be the greatest version of "O Holy Night" ever. I had it sent to me a year or two ago. I downloaded it to our IPod. It's great. You've got to hear it. Go here to listen to or download an mp3. I haven't read this site so I know nothing about it.

what a weekend

We had a great Thanksgiving with Stephanie's family. On Wed. night and Thursday night we had 13 people(including us) spending the night at our house for 2 days. We had four kids sleeping on the floor in our bedroom. We had 18 people here on Thanksgiving. There was plenty of good food...all weekend. We played a lot of the Nintendo Wii. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving too.

We are having Thanksgiving at our house with Stephanie's family. There will be 18 of us. That's a lot. Our house really isn't that big. I think if we lock all the kids in the spare bedroom, we should be fine. Of course, we'll give them a potty break every 5 hours. And they can come out and eat for 10 minutes. Speaking of eating, we're just not sure what to make for our main course. Maybe hamburgers or chicken. Maybe I'll grill the turkey. We'll let it thaw out and I'll just throw it on the grill for a few hours.

A Milestone!

Wow, this is so exciting! This is the 100th post on this blog! Who knew it would grow into what is has become today, a national phenomenon. I think this blog might be bigger than Oprah. It's pretty amazing. And just to think, it started out with very humble beginnings in the Mississippi backwoods.

My wife went to Ikea and the Mall of America today with some ladies in my family. They came and spent the night last night and have been shopping all day. She said the Mall is absolutely crazy. It took them forever to find a parking spot.

I added a slideshow of various pictures. It plays on this page.

Black Friday

Next week is Black Friday. The day everyone gets up at 3:00 in the morning to go to the store and stand in line for 2 hours to get a camera or whatever. I'm included in that. I don't think I'll get up at 3, but it will be early enough. Stephanie doesn't get to go shopping this year because she'll be working in it at Office Max. If you would like to check out the ads for Black Friday go here or here.

Stephanie started decorating for Christmas last night. We're a little behind this year. Stephanie has a little tree she keeps up year round in the living room. She says it's not a Christmas tree. I don't know about that. Anyway, we want to get a 9ft. tree but don't have the money right now. So she just decorated the little tree for now. We may just keep it there this Christmas season. All of Stephanie's family is coming over for Thanksgiving so it may be better to just have a little tree up instead of a big one so there's more room. Now all we need is some snow. Okay, not yet.

My night off was very refreshing. I didn't do much. We went to church, went to Arby's, played Scrabble and slept in till 9:30. It was nice. It's back to work tonight but I'm refreshed and ready.
Have a good day.

no work

I took tonight off(Sunday). I haven't had a day off(vacation) since June so I wanted to take a day off. So I did. So I'm going to church tonight for the first time in the evening in a long time.

I'm alive

Sorry I haven't been updated on a regular basis. I know you all expect so much more from me.

I'm looking a Christmas Trees online. Artificial ones. Stephanie and I want a 9ft. tree. I found a website, that has all sorts of trees. Here's the one we're looking at. It's only $7,000. This is the 20ft. tree. We wanted the 30ft tree for $12,000 but they're sold out. It's either a tree or a car. Hmmm.

Stephanie is doing her Scrapbooking Weekend this weekend with the ladies in her family. All they do is scrapbook. Aren't they crazy. So I'll be babysitting my niece and nephew, Alexis and Elijah. I'm looking forward to that. It'll be fun.

Lastly, I would like to say congrats to Mark and Crystal Vance and the birth of their boy, Owen David.

Besides being cold and very windy outside. I have a cold now. I felt it coming on Friday morning and now I've got it. I'm drinking water, water, water. Hopefully it goes away soon.

Everyone's favorite frozen pizza, Totinos, has a recall out.

Funny story. I used to eat Totinos pizza all the time. Now I think they're disgusting. Funny, huh.

It's November

It's November and we still haven't decorated for Christmas. What's up with us? It's about time to get all the Christmas music out.

I got the Wii set up. I downloaded Donkey Kong Country. Stephanie's mom has it for the Super Nintendo and we always play it when we go there. Now we can play it here.
