Jarret woke us up at 4am on Christmas morning.. So we let the kids do stockings at that time and shoved them off to bed. By 6am Jarret was up again and we waited until about 630 to wake Amy and George up. Presents were open and being played with by 730 and I was making French Toast. We had our supper and everything was awesome!!
I had a few more pics to put up.. But I guess Blogger is on holidays..

In other news... My Smoothie Maker ROCKS!! We have been experimenting with it.. I think today I made my best one yet. It had frozen Strawberries, 1 banana, 1 Kiwi, and about 1/2 cup of plain yogurt. It was really yummy. We had Kahlua Milkshakes last night. And we are doing Margaritas this weekend.
I also did some Christmas baking last night. I made Butter Tarts and Confetti Squares. George was my taste tester because I cant have any until Christmas Eve and Christmas Day because of my "diet". He said everything tasted awesome so I am happy with that. I still have to make Sugar Cookies and Peanut Butter Balls then I'm done.
Off to give miss Amy a bath..

I was looking for a picture to put up here of you and me.. and nothing.. whats up with that?
Anyway.. Bev and I have been friends for .. What?? 50 years?? Lol.. Its actually been about 14 years. We met in grade 9 and it didn't start out all that great. I think we got into an argument and she didn't talk to me for about 3 months. But in those 3 months I kept bugging her and pestering her to talk to me. I think that made her more mad. I seem to remember having fun with it though. But ever since then we have been friends. She is my best friend. We could go forever (cause she doesn't call..) without talking to eachother and once we (I call her) re connect we pick up where we left off.
Have a wonderful day.. I am so glad you are as old as me now.. At least for a few months anyway. I miss you.. and will talk to you soon!!

I cant explain how LOUD the alarm is in this building. It pierces my ears its so loud. It is now 6:54am and the alarm is STILL going off. Our suite smells like smoke now.. The fire is in the underground parking.. We are on the 17th floor!! The fire department advised all the residents to stay in their units. The fire trucks and EMT's and police cars are down to the next building. What a way to start off the week.
Update: Its 7:27am and the alarm is still going...
Update: At 7:38am the alarm stopped. Apparently there was a car set on fire on one of the parkaid levels...

"Is your Amy the one that can't eat nuts?"
"Yes" I said back at her
"My son told me that Amy is pink and she cant eat nuts" she says to me laughing
I chuckled with her and she said she asked him,
"What do you mean she's pink?
"She Always wears pink!!"
This is the same boy who's mom at the beginning of the year asked what my daughters name was cause her son wanted to know. How cute is that??

She went over his report card with us.. (which really wasn't all that great). He does very well in Gym and Music though. So as the meeting went on she pulled out some of his work. There was about 4 different things she showed us.. And I am not kidding when I say that EVERYTHING was incomplete!!! NOT HAPPY!! George stood there with a not so happy look on his face.. I felt myself feeling very crappy as the teacher spoke about how Jarret doesn't focus.. How Jarret's printing isn't great.. How he comprehends French but cant write it or read it..
She did suggest that we get his hearing and eyes checked out because that may be a possibility why he isn't completing any of his work. I did ask if he socializes too much in class and if that could be why he isn't completing any of his work.. She said he isn't disruptive or he isn't distracted by visiting too much. There are a few things we can do at home to help him with his printing and reading obviously. If there is nothing wrong with his hearing or eyes then its all up to him to focus in class.
So George and I found ourselves giving him the "pull up your socks by next report card or else" speach.. lol.. Man If I didn't feel like a "real" parent before I sure did today. After we had our talk with him I told George I need to call my mom and apologize for all the parent teacher interviews she walked out of feeling the way I did today. And believe me there were plenty.. More about my "talking too much" but still.
I was really upset today. I know he is a smart kid and he means well.. I just hope we got through to him today about how important it is to do your best and focus on school work.
Amy's Parent Teacher is on Monday.. I already know I am going to hear about her "timeouts" but I am looking forward to hearing what the teacher has to say about her.

George and I upgraded our digital cable box for an HD PVR cable box on Saturday. The HD is so nice to have back, and the PVR is very cool. We can pause TV.. Record it.. Rewind.. Or fastforward!! Let me tell you we had so much fun with it this weekend.
Our poor Jakey is very sick with Pneumonia. He has been admitted to the hospital since Friday, and is there until at least today. He has Pneumonia in both lungs and was in a lot of pain in his tummy. I hope you are feeling better today bud!!!
Well.. That is all for now.. Have a wonderful day everyone!!
