[Comments] (4) [Trackback URL for this entry] To do list, and the done list: So far so good this month. I feel like I am keeping my head above water for the most part this Christmas season. Friday we took our family pictures...in the dark. Aaron didn't get home till 5:30 so we just took them in our front yard. Oh well, at least they are done and now I can order them, and hopefully send them out next week.

I pretty much have everything bought for people on the list. I told Aaron that he had to buy for his dad, because I never know what to get him. I think he forgot because yesterday he went with his friend Mark to go scope out a laptop for himself instead of buy gifts for Rick...or me. Really, I am kidding though, I don't want Aaron to buy me anything for Christmas. We got a GPS and that is about all I want. Plus that trip to the outlet mall for midnight madness. Yep, I'm pretty good at buying for myself too it turns out. Don't need any help there. So don't get me anything Aaron, capisce?

Friday night my mom invited the kids to spend the night. It was fabulous. Lily has spent the night at David and Ashley's several times, but never Gunnar. I was a little nervous that he would cry the whole night, because when I put him down for naps over there, he never really stays asleep long, and cries very sad tears when I put him down. It was great though, because he just waved us goodbye when we left him there. He likes Moppie's house now because he knows where her jellybean stash is, and he gets fistfuls at a time.

Mom had them make a gingerbread house, and she said they both went down fine. When I picked them up the next morning, they were both cheerful and bright. Success! Now mom just needs to invite them over more. Gunnar is so cute. When we get onto Circle A Trail he knows where we are going "Mop-mee's house". I think it is cute when he recognizes where we are. He does the same for church. When we get in the neighborhood he goes "yay! church!" or "yay! gym!".

Since we had an all night babysitter for Friday, Aaron and I went to the ward Christmas party, and actually enjoyed ourselves. We didn't have to stress that dinner wasn't served until 7pm because our kids weren't there starving, or tearing up the place in the meantime. We had a good time hanging out with everyone, and then we jetted to the movies. We saw The Day the Earth Stood Still. I still remember the original VHS movie in my dad's collection, and seeing the first 15 minutes of it and laughing my head off at how lame it was. The new version is not much better. Very boring. I fell asleep for at least 30 minutes of it. Keanu Reeves is good at playing robots or stoners because of his lack of depth as a character and voice fluctuations. It was just too boring though.

Sat morning we had scout pack meeting and tithing settlement. I also went on a 16 mile run. Blisters much. Ouch. Aaron fried some hot thighs, drumsticks, breasts, sweet potato fries, and regular fries for dinner. I have the best recipe for hot wings sauce. I love my deep fryer. It gets it to the perfect crispness. Oh boy, what a mess though.

Thanks for the update! I espec. laughed at your Keanu Reeves observation. Just saw the original Day the Earth Stood Still and liked it, though the first 15 min are VERY slow...

Yah, I have no problem buying for myself either. =) And how fun to have a night to yourselves!

Maybe I should give it another chance. Mark my words...with all this global warming, I swear they are going to remake Soylent Green.

I'd like to see a Soylent Green remake, except Wall-E was kinda in that vein.
