Happy Holidays!
Holy smokes has it been a busy few weeks! I know you must be just as busy...Getting the holiday shopping done and then doing all the events and just getting our everyday normal routines and such done has been crazy! Its all winding down a bit now as we think we are done with shopping- this year we had more than usual to shop as we have allot of kids that came into our lives this year. I and the hubster are enjoying being "uncles" to so many toddlers. It fun to buy toys again as our other nephews and nieces are now in high school and beyond and now we just have a big x mas eve dinner to pull off and then I am going to bake like a crazy man tomorrow. I think I am going to make about 6 kinds of cookies- 3 types of bread and some cupcakes-- Got a new froster and I am excited to try it out. Ok boys get your mind out of the gutter! Not that kind of froster! he he he....Anyhow hope all is well out there for you as well and you are all enjoying the season. Thumbs up Santa!

Mom I miss u......
Hubby and I and mom about 3 weeks before she lost her to her battle with cancer above..
I think of my mom daily, Sometimes more so on certain days than others. Today is one of those days...A day I really miss her and get really sad. We cleaned out her home last month and got it rented to some nice people- Getting all her stuff packed up was very emotional. I don't know how to put it into words really but it was difficult. I have been slowly getting some of the stuff my dad left behind (as he moved back home to Honolulu) incorporated into my home and then other items to donate as well. Today I had some bins and boxes to go through and sort as I had put them aside as some of the stuff I thought my sisters and brothers would be interested in. I was a blubbering mess as I went through it all this morning. My sis is coming over tonight and so I got a few boxes ready for her and then some blankets of moms that was left in the linen closet.....all of still had the smell of my mom and her house....It was so comforting but at the same time it made me miss her so much...The hardest part was that and then coming across her make up, brushes, powders, lotions etc......It was like she was in the room with me.....It made my heart miss her so much.

Its also the holidays and that time of year she loved so much. We would spend so much time together during the holiday season.....Shopping, visiting, going to look at lights...just doing all kinds of holiday stuff. Its the hardest time of the year for me that's for sure...So much tradition and memories....She has been gone for about a year and a half now but it seems longer. Sometimes I talk to her at night as I lay in bed....Sometimes she feels like she is in the room with me and it comforts me. I sure do miss our talks....I miss her voice the most.

Mom would have our family's annual x mas ever dinner every year and so enjoyed doing that and so looked forward to it. This year I will keep that tradition in her honor. My sisters and the kids and my brother have all agreed to get together this year at my home. I am so looking forward to it and will so enjoy doing it too .... I now feel the same as she used to I guess...I know she is looking forward to it too ....seeing all of us together....She and we will so enjoy it. I also know she would be so proud.

Lady Gaga White Christmas

So I am a GaGa fan....I liked her but wasnt one of those who was MAJOR about her. I am a bit picky about my divas.... I can honestly admit I maybe a bit late out of the gates on getting on the GaGa wagon but but after watching her Thanksgiving Special I LOVE HER! I so enjoyed this side of her. I loved her White Christmas, Lady is a Tramp duet with Tony Bennett and Orange Colored Sky. She is going to join my ranks for faves now and all I can say is WOW! I suggest checking it ALL out.. Here she is with Tony singing Lady is a Tramp

Christmas Lights- Check
Hubby and I got all the lights up yesterday in the yard- Day before we did the entire inside of the house- The house is now Christmasized and ready for the holidays! It looks awesome and I will have to take some pics soon and post. We had some help from Ryan Gossling above too...Well we are happy with the outcome and at least it only took two full days this year. I have a lot of stuff we decided not to use and will be donating it. We started years ago with LED lights and last year we were 90% .. This year we are at 100% LED and I must say I love the light it gives and love the lower bills! So Happy Decorating to you...If you need Ryans help e mail me and I will give you his number....
