Some new Stuff for the house

Well when Cathrine moved she had A LOT of stuff she now longer had room for. So we greatly inherited it. This is my new room. I love my new comforter. The ugly orange flowered curtin's where my old ones. I hated them. I love my room now, the pink and green chair match perfectly and the picture too. There is also a gold and green framed mirror that I just have not hung up yet that matches everything. The carpet, and love sac are new and the round table is also new that Lisa gave us. This has made such a big difference. I love all of it

Playing with my new Camera

Elijah was in trouble and this is the way I found him. When I woke him up, the first thing he said was " I wasn't sleeping" He's so funny!
Shaela loves when he reads to her
Shaela got these new PJ's for Christmas, when I put them on her she lifted the "cape" and said "I'm Superman" Can you tell she has 3 brother's?
Duanavan loves Clothes. He loves to look good. The sweater was a little big but he didn't care.
Shaela loves dresses, This one kept showing her big booty in church.
I finally took the little ones to the park. It has been in the 50's lately, they were very happy.
Isaiah kept running into her new bike with his bike and every time he did, Shaela would have to "fix" her bike.
Shaela got nail polish from Santa, so when I asked her what color she wanted she said all of them. So this was the end result.

Isaiah carries a back pack around everywhere he goes that has some toys in it. Well he left it at a friends house so he didn't have it on Christmas day. So he put all of his new toys in a plastic tote, and pushed or carried it EVERYWHERE he went. Upstairs and then back down, down the hall, in the kitchen, anywhere he went. Then he found my basket and put his favorites in it, and Carried that around. That went on for two days, then we found the back pack. Thank Goodness, the basket was too big!
Putting on her lipstick!
Shaela riding her new bike and "Showing Teeth!"

Christmas Day

Snow White and her Beautiful smile

Sleeping Snow White waiting for her Prince!

Christmas day was filled with family, love, putting things together, playing, laughter, basketball (LAKER'S WON!!), SLEEP, and Good bye's. Cathrine and Miguel have now both moved from Virginia. We are so sad. Shaela and Cthrine have such a connection. Cathrine taught her "The Smile" Cathrine and Miguel have the same smile in every picture they are in, and they can hold it forever! Well all I have to say now to Shaela is " Show Teeth" and Shaela smiles Beautifully. I swear Cathrine and Shaela have the same smile. Shaela got the Snow White dress for Christmas and she loves it. She calls her Snow Wipe. The boys love wrestling with Kandrick. They never win but they love it anyways!

Christmas morning

Christmas morning Started at 6 am with Duanavan whispering in my ear " Mom, when are you going to get up so we can open up presents?" So I drug myself out of bed ( did I mention I didn't go to bed until 3:30 that morning?) and took a shower. Anita and Merriam were at our house by 7Am and the kids where dying to get down stairs. I always leave a wrapped book by their room in the morning for each of the kids to help pass the time before we open gifts. So it seemed that by the end of opening up gifts, everyone was happy. I think I was the luckiest this year though. I was given the Camera (Nikon D 40) that I have been wanting really bad. Along with a beautiful vase that Duanavan painted for me, a flat Iron and Boots. Duanavan Loved his Wrestling mask and wrestling match/little wrestlers thing. Shaela loved her Tea set and Bike, Elijah loved his Bakugon set, Isaiah carried a box around with all his treasures, and Kandrick loved his basketball shoes. We had a great morning with our family.
