Since Ann tagged me over a month ago... I figured it was time to fess up. Here are 6 things that most people don't know about me.

1) I don't know how to do a hyperlink. It would have been cool to hyperlink Ann's name to lead all of you to her blog, but alas, don't know how. If someone would be kind enough to instruct me...

2) I actually love to eat Ramen noodles. I can afford to spend more than 20 cents on a meal, but sometimes, I just have to have the noodles.

3) I actually write letters/emails/make phone calls to companies to complain or comment on their products. I DON'T MAKE STUFF UP to get free products, I just tell them what I think or what happened, and they thank me and often send me great stuff :) One time I complained about a piece of plastic that I found in my Walmart brand wheat thins and they Fed-exed me a huge box of 20 different kinds of crackers and cookies. I donated them to the nursery... Anyway, Ben absolutely HATES that I do it--even when he is not involved in any way.

4) I have Restless Leg Syndrome. Its for real. I hate it, but its not bad enough that I need medicine. If I do a ton of leg-lifts, the symptoms usually go away.

5) I have a really hard time paying attention in church-mostly sacrament meeting. It has nothing to do with James. I have a hard time staying focused in meetings where I am not expected to be an active participant. My highest compliment to a particularly great speaker is, "I paid attention to the whole thing!" :)

6) I sleep with earplugs in and the sheet over my head. Ever since James was born, I've become a poor sleeper and hyper sensitive to everything when I'm trying to sleep. I get my best sleep after 5am. I also still love to sleep in, even though I'm a real adult. If I had my way, I'd sleep til 9am everyday.

Instead of me tagging 6 people, why don't you consider yourself tagged if you read all of this! That's right, I mean you!

What would you do if...

you got a wedding invitation that said, "Bride and Groom are registered at Wells Fargo"? Or maybe I should ask, What would you give? Yeah, I got one of those last week...

The twelve days of Christmas

My darling husband is doing the 12 days of Christmas for me. He said he tried to get each present to ryhme or go with the regular song. So on day three I got 3 bic pens and today I got 5 onion rings (and a Sonic gift card). He's a funny man. (Day one was "a book about a tree"= A Tree grows in Brooklyn, which I've been wanting to read; Day 2 was "2 games of scrabble, both English and Spanish(we get pretty competitive when we play any word games); and day 4 he put some of our stuffed animal birds around my cell phone for me to find. Ha!) I'll update if he gets any weirder.

Dear Joni and Sheryl,

Thank you for introducing me to the wonderful world of PF Changs. I love it, and you.

My recommendation:

Do NOT go see "I Am Legend". The end.

Some of the cousins looking at all the "Black Friday" ads

James attacking Chelsea.

Nieces and Nephews at Thanksgiving

Chyna entertaining us with the guitar and Chelsea entertaining us with her charms.

Aaron playing his guitar

My little neice Chelsea all grown up. SHE IS A SENIOR in High School! I was just feeding her a bottle when I was in high school! YIKES!

Kayce giving her seal of approval to the potatoes and rolls!

I just LOVE me!

Well, Whitney Houston said learning to love yourself was the greatest love of all. We've not been successful yet in helping James understand that he's the baby in the mirror.

Ducks a plenty!

James feeding the ducks in Lake Jackson on the day before Thanksgiving. Yep, in shorts and and sandals. We are glad that both parties got along well. You never know what a toddler could do to a duck... and vice versa.

Made this ducky cake for a baby shower. James LOVE 'gucks'. :)
