Friday Fragments Holiday Style

Friday Fragments?

~I did it! I faced the holiday madness alone with the three youngsters. There really was no other option, as today is Friday and we leave for Oma and Opa's on Tuesday. McClaine ate half a pack of gum (the big packs and he swallowed all of it), Audrey ate food completely inappropriate for a one year old and Avery told our life story to 6 strangers who really didn't care. But I made it through two 30 minute car rides, a trip to Hobby Lobby, a trip to Target, three stops at public bathrooms and an incredibly long line at Chic-Fil-A.

~My Christmas Tree, that was so masterfully decorated, now only has 30% of its decor on it. The rest is scattered throughout the house.

~I am hosting a Blogarita Bash at my house after the New Year, more details to come.

~If you haven't entered my Blog Makeover Giveaway, do it! Especially all my friends IRL (in real life) that have blogs that need a little touch up, don't hurt my feelings... You have until 11:59 pm cst Monday.

~Will you please go by this blog, I just came across it and am overwhelmed by their circumstances, they could use some support.

~In lieu of ridiculous gifts for Christmas, please consider this AWESOME opportunity-

WE spent forever at Chick-fil-a last night for a fundraiser/concert thing for my kids school! It was madness! Good for you for surviving all your madness!

I love the account of what your kids ate! You are so brave to do all that shopping with 3 kids!

I have my Advent Conspiracy check all written out from our yard sale and various other things I've been selling all year. The problem? Church was canceled last week due to weather and may be tomorrow also! the Advent Conspiracy collection was supposed to be last week. I may end up sending my money to the church office. :(

Hi Tyne! Thanks for checking out my blog. My surgery is open-heart surgery on my mitral valve. I had a repair done as a child and this is a 2nd one. I appreciate your thoughts and prayers!
