I can't believe it is almost Christmas. Saylor has been counting down the days and she keeps asking me if I think she is on the "Nice" list. lol I told her she surely was. She's got her fingers crossed anyway. We will try and go look at Christmas lights and do a little baking and watching some of our holiday faves. We are very blessed in my family and I am sure most of you feel the same. I can't help but think of all of those kids out there that don't have heat or much to eat and Christmas is just another day to them. It breaks my heart to know there are so many out there that aren't as fortunate as my family is.
Merry Christmas to all of you and have a safe and happy holiday. Peace!

Lexi Sullens invited Saylor to go with her to the American Girl Place in Atlanta for her birthday yesterday. I think Saylor may have had the time of her life!! I have never seen her so tore up when she got home. She got her doll's hair done and got new clothes and all that good stuff. Thanks to Chris, Tab and Lexi for making it such a fun trip and for the invite. She will never forget it.

Is he not the cutest? This is Rudy and he is a goldendoodle. My sister loves Erin Vey's photography blog and got me into it and it is so awesome. She does pet photography and her pictures are great. Her link is in my sidebar and there is a slide show of this cutie pie on there.

Saylor gave me this "recipe" she did at school on how to cook a turkey. I thought it was quite comical. She wrote: You buy a turkey. Then you cut it open and get out the goos. And then when your done with that you wash your hands. Then you put it in a pan. Then you add pepper spices and put it on 450 dagres.
Too funny and she even knows to wash your hands. lol

As I walked down the hallway Friday night I passed Saylor's room to see this...
She is reading the bible. I was so proud when I saw this. She read 21 verses all by herself. Then on Saturday she read 7 or 8 more. Thanks to Mrs. LeAnn. She gave Saylor this bible when she was in her class at Westwood.

We made it home today by lunch which was great! Christian has made it through with flying colors. He's not even taking pain medicine. I am not sure why. He has some swelling on one side of his face but feels good and is on the road to recovery. He has a plastic splint in his mouth that may come out by Christmas. We just have to see how quick it heals. He has had a lot of bone put in his gum line. His doctor explained what all he did during the 3 hour surgery and I could never explain it. It is unbelievable what they can do in this day and time. We have received so many calls and texts asking about him. Thanks to all of you that have prayed for him and left comments or checked on him in any way. I truly appreciate it. It is great to be home. Hospital life stinks. I don't know how people like the Dunn's make it like they do. Hats off to them and their strength.
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!!

Like most of you this time of year keeps me busy with my kid's activities. Between both having basketball practices and games and Saylor also having dance and girl scouts, I feel like I am never home.
We are going to the Titans game tomorrow. It will be Saylor's first game! She's pretty excited. I am too! I love going to the games and we have awesome seats. After the game Christian and I along with Mandy will be spending the night in Nashville. Christian will be having his fourth surgery on Monday. We have to be at Baptist at 5:30 so we decided to just stay overnight. Saylor will be coming back with my parents and then Mom and Dad will come back down Monday morning. Christian is nervous but won't say much about it. It's a difficult surgery and involves several hours of work and putting bone in his gum line. It's all very confusing and I couldn't really explain it. We love his oral surgeon and know he will do great!
Tonight Christian's friend Casey Myers, who has been through the same surgeries as Christian,
had him a little surprise party at Boyd after all the boys finished high school basketball practice. Pretty much the whole high school team was there along with some of his other friends from Boyd. They got him a bunch of goodies to keep him occupied during his recovery and a few boys got him a Hastings gift card. They also had food and some gorgeous cupcakes that Gina Tilton made.
Casey's mom, Tracey Pickens, did great getting it all together and surprising Christian. I am amazed at how great they all are to Christian. There are some really great people associated with Boyd and I am so glad Christian is there.
Mandy made some pics so I will try and post some later.
Please keep Christian in your prayers and I will update this when we get home Tuesday.

Brandie Mansfield took this cute picture of Saylor playing in the leaves at Linda Dunlap's. Saylor takes art from Brandie at Chole's. She is not a great artist but she learns so much about different artist from Mrs. Brandie and she tells me about it and I am amazed. Thanks Brandie!

Veronica Stepien and Tanya Jones have both tagged me. I have been putting it off but here goes.
7 Weird/Unusual Facts about me:
1. I started fainting at the age of 5 and still do to this day. I have done it so much I can tell the person I am with it's going to happen.
2. I rub my feet on the bed trying to go to sleep and apparently while sleeping. I have worn a hole in my sheets from it.
3. My hair is so freaking thick that if it is getting on my nerves I just take a razor and comb through it to thin it out! I know, don't tell Wendy Beaty. lol
4. I watch Friends everyday!
5. I love Miley Cyrus and watching Hannah Montana.
6. I get obssessed with whatever sport my kids are playing. I hate for their teams to lose and get really competitive.
7. I talk to my sister and my mom daily and usually see them too!
If you haven't done this yet then I am tagging you. So if you just read this that means you!

Christian's first basketball game was last night against Victory Baptist. We won 24-13. The boys did great! There are only 7 of them and they haven't got to practice a lot. Next week we go to Van Buren Co. I think we are in for a rough game there. Here are some pics of Christian in action.
The other teams outfits were interesting to say the least. I don't think Christian would play if he had to wear that. lol

Some people requested I post my Nena's recipe. So here it is.
1 package frozen roll dough (balls about 18)
1 stick butter, melted
I dip my rolls in the butter and then place in a buttered bundt pan. Pour remaining butter over the rolls.
Then mix together:
1 package Vanilla or Butterscotch Cook & Serve pudding (not instant)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped pecans
Sprinkle over rolls. Cover with a cloth and let stand over night at room temperature. Bake the next morning at 350 for about 30 minutes. A place a square of foil over mine to keep in from getting too brown. Let stand one minute in pan and then invert onto plate.

After Paula, over at Krumbz, posted her Monkey Bread last week I have been craving it. I bought the stuff to make hers and will try it this weekend. I have to bake my Nena's recipe during the week because you make it the night before and Lord knows I do good to get that done!
