Odd Santa photos

This is one of those where you wonder now why would those parents make that poor child cry like that!  I was 11 months old...Funny that I never had a fear of him after that year! 
 And I BELIEVED Santa was real after seeing THIS Santa?  Check out his eye brows!
By far - I think this should win the creepiest Santa photo of all time!

First Annual Cookie Exchange!

Such a fun night!  We have this great group of women in our neighborhood (some are just Mom's who's kids go to the same school, which is IN our neighborhood) and I consider them one in the same...Anyways, decided to do a cookie exchange on like the 10th of Dec & we had a great turn out!  Three who RSVP'd they'd be there had last minute things happen & they didn't make it.  Next year...there will be even more I'm sure next year!  And I can't wait!  I love to entertain!

Girlfriends are
much cheaper
than therapists
and a whole lot
more fun.
A girlfriend
knows your
deep dark
secrets, but likes
you anyway.
Girlfriends are
no farther away
than the phone,
even if it's 4 am
in the morning
A good
girlfriend is hard
to find,
impossible to
replace and
never forgotten.

A realization about life & friendships

There is someone in my life, someone that I would have called a friend at one time or another, but I wouldn't say that anymore.  At least I don't want her in my life as a friend anymore.  I just realized that when you really don't respect someone and you don't have the same values, just not worth the time for the friendship. 
You try to help people & they just piss away every opportunity, it's not worth it.  And frankly, I'm done trying.  And, I'm tired of watching you walk all over your boyfriend, well now ex and just think why am I even wasting my time thinking of this stuff.  Just be done with it...
You create your life and it’s because of decisions you’ve made that you have gotten you to where you are today. Take responsibility & don’t blame others for your situation.
If you’re not willing to work for it – it’s not going to happen.
Want money – get a job & support yourself. Don’t expect someone else to support you.
Wanna lose weight, then do something about & put the donuts down! If you’re not ready then stop talking about it & just enjoy the donuts! (Mind you those donuts can be whatever your weakeness/favorite high calorie food is).
You can’t just expect that people are going to hand you things & you can just sail on enjoying the ride. Well, I guess you can b/c it’s a free country, I just hope you know there are no free rides. Everything comes at some sort of a cost. Whether it’s hard work, giving something other than money or sacrificing a relationship or time somewhere in your life. Nothin’s free baby…
