After Christmas Detox

As my headache from Christmas begins to fade, I sit back and think about how wonderful our day was. This was Pickle's first real Christmas. Yes he is 2 and has had 2 other Christmas mornings, however he was too little to understand. This year he totally got it. I wish I had the thought in my head to take pictures. Hindsight is 20/20.

Our little man was tucked into our bed around 9:30 (yes, I know that it is late, but with the day we had on Christmas eve, and having visitors staying at our house...... you know how it goes). Once he was asleep, Santa went to work. For Christmas we purchased him the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Kitchen Table, it was pretty easy to get set up, it just took a bit of time. We also got him two baskets of food, a "taco kit", and Uno Moo. So while Daddy went to work building Santa's table for him, Mommy got to work wrapping and filling the stocking. The elves went to bed after 11.

Since little man was snuggled in Mom and Dad's bed we were able to sleep in a bit. We just failed to tell Pickle, he needed to sleep in too. Thankfully we woke up before Pickle was off our bed and running. He grabbed his beloved blue couch pillow (which is way to big for his little body) and ran out of our room. He took off right past the Christmas tree, right past his new kitchen and into our kitchen. All the sudden his came to a halt in front of our kitchen sink. The boy was lucky he didn't fall he stopped so quickly. He turned around and ran to his new kitchen. The look of wonder and shock was great. It was a memory that I will forever remember. It took some time, but he finally noticed the other gifts under the tree, and started handing them out to Daddy and myself.

While little man played with his toys, We started getting ready for the day. First we went to my in-laws for breakfast, then to my parents for lunch/dinner, and back to the in-laws for desert. It was great day. This day was the reason so many people look forward to the holidays. THE BEST DAY EVER!

Purple Turtle?

The things that my kid says. I tell you. I don't know if he comes up with all of it on his own, or if most of it is his daddy's influence.

I am betting on the latter.

lately it is the phrase "Burple Turtle" translated to purple turtle. Believe it or not there is numerous pictures of purple turtles, and websites. Apparently he fell upon something quite popular. Look at my kid the trend setter. I hope all your kids are trend setters in their own right.

I know I haven't talked about finances in a while on here, and that is because I try not to think too much about them. Today however is a different day. On a normal work day I leave the house at 630am and return at 530 pm. It makes for a long day. Because of this, I tend to eat breakfast and lunch here at my desk.

Well before M lost his job, it wasn't a big deal, I would bring something or if I was feeling adventures I would grab something on my way. Now things are quite different. For breakfast each day, I tend to eat a spoonful of peanut butter, and then for lunch I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. That is all I have. 

Today the peanut butter jar I have at my desk is empty. For most people this is no big deal. For us this is HUGE. I have just enough money to get to payday for gas. That is it. Nothing extra. So for me, there is no more breakfast. Although it was just a spoonful of peanut butter to you, to me it was a entire meal.
