Adrian needs...

I saw this on another blog and thought it was cute.

First, go to Google. Type in your name, followed by the word "needs" and post the first 10 sentences that come up. Here are my top 10 "needs" according to Google:

1. Adrian needs glue.

2. Adrian needs counseling. Interesting....

3. Adrian needs your advice. Well, if I need counseling. It might as well be from you.

4. Adrian needs 2 step her game up. Says who?

5. Adrian needs a very special family who will be loving, caring and patient. 'Cause she's in counseling and working on her game.

6. Adrian needs the ball at least 30 times per game if you want to win. Trying to step up my game people!

7. Adrian needs, sorry, definitely needs to find a new look. Again, stepping up my game.

8. Adrian needs 2 duals for 2006-2007. Huh? Apparently this is a wrestling term.

9. Adrian needs to be able to manage her time effectively. Ya think?

10. Adrian needs to make sure she can take down all of her opponent's monsters before they cause too much damage. This must be why I'm in counseling.

Better late than never...Welcome to my tour!


Come on in!

This is the distressed window that hangs by my front door. I have put lights in the greenery before, but this year, I just didn't have the time.

This picture was painted by my sister-in-law, Alison. It sits by my front door as well. Can you tell I like snowmen?

This is Jackson's tree in his room. It is decorated with mini John Deere tractors and snowmen. It also has a mini snow globe with his name on it that Mrs. Linda gave him.

Just a few extra things that I have sitting out. That's my neice, Tillie, in the picture to the left. Isn't she adorable?!!

This is our tree. This year we had to put it in our bedroom. Jackson spends all of his time playing in the living room, particularly in the floor in front of the front-facing windows. So, we decided not to move his play space and put the tree elsewhere. I must admit, it's a little strange seeing it in there! (Can you see the deer on the wall? Ha!)

Well, that's all I have. Hope you enjoyed the tour!

True meaning of Christmas...

Advent Conspiracy

That's a Cow!!

Okay, I have to brag. Jackson said a sentence last night. We were reading his favorite book for about the fourth time. It's The Jolly Barnyard and it has pictures of all the farm animals. So, on this fourth read-through, I asked him "What's that?" and pointed to a picture of a cow. He, in his not-so-audible toddler talk, said "tat's a tow." I was thrilled. I even got him to say it again so that Clint could hear it. Hmmm, soon I won't be able to get him to hush!

Coston Christmas

Yesterday, we had the Coston Christmas. We had a good time hanging out with the fam, eating and playing with the kids. Jackson, of course, racked up on some toys and had a great time terrorizing his cousin Tillie.

Just for Anna

Anna flogged me Saturday for not blogging this week. I tried to tell her that I had a pretty non-eventful week. That's a good thing in my world!!

So, this post is just for her. Hope you enjoy!!
