Friday Fun
This afternoon Dave and I took the two youngest kids, who were off school, to see Bee Movie. They really liked it, Dave and I thought it was OK. If your kids aren't dying to go you could probably wait until it comes out on DVD and have a family movie night. Not to mention how much cheaper this option would be. Geesh, I can't believe how much it costs to go and see a movie.

Tonight Dave and I snuck out for some alone time. We went to dinner and then he, oh so sweetly, agreed to go to Michael's with me. I wanted to look at artificial Christmas Trees.

I love the smell of a fresh tree at Christmas time but I hate the cost. How many of you have fake trees? Are you happy with them? Can you recommend a particular type?

There are so many choices I felt like my head was going to spin off. Not to mention the prices. The one I really liked was $350.00. Does this sound high to you????

Well, after our fun night out I snuggled up into my favorite pj's and quickly fell asleep. An hour later hubby woke me saying Garrett had come downstairs crying and saying his head hurt.

I got up, gave him some medicine, and hoped he would be able to go back to sleep. Within a few moments the barfing began. He now feels better and is sleeping on the couch beside me. We think it was food poisoning. He was the only one who ate the sausage pizza.

True to form the first question out of his mouth was "I can still play in my game in the morning, right?"

His daddy was so proud. I could tell by the look on his face he was thinking "That's my boy".

For Pete's sake people their is more to life than baseball. Did I just say that?

Hopefully the family doesn't kick me out of the tribe for thinking such a thing.

I think that if you want a tree that will look nice for more than 3 years, you have to get an expensive one. We had a cheap one and it started looking tacky after a couple years. We now are getting real trees.

My parents have an expensive one that they got on sale after Christmas one year and it still looks pretty good after 4 years. However, I think that it still will need to be replaced in a few years, so the cost is pretty high.

Good luck! I actually went to Michael's today too. Did you see that white tree with those huge lights that change color?
