Weekly Friends TV Quote!
ROSS: I don't know whether he's testing me, or just acting out, but my monkey is out of control. But, he keeps erasing the messages on my machine, supposedly by accident.
RACHEL: Oh, yeah, I've done that.
ROSS: And then, like three days in a row he got to the newspaper before I did and pee-ed all over the crossword.
RACHEL: I've never done that.

The weekend is over and it is time again for the Christmas of Dreams Blog Party at MomDot! Click the pic above if you want to join in!
What is your favorite holiday recipe?
MomDot has finally done it. They have finally found a holiday question that really doesn't concern me. Favorite holiday recipe? I sit and laugh because I am the non cooker. Sometimes I get into the spirit and cook (one year I made a pumpkin cheesecake), but my cookies are the sugar cookies out of the tube. I know what a disgrace to the holiday season, but without me who would bring the rolls and alcohol? See I am good for something. One year I would love to cook a holiday dinner, but that role has been taken by my mother in law and I don't see her relinquishing this role anytime soon! Plus she makes a mean Christmas dinner!
Describe your Holiday table.
Our Christmas table consists of two large tables filled with aunts, uncles, and cousins. Even my mom and sister stop by Christmas day. The tables are decorated beautifully and we all sit and have one big Family dinner! We try to put the kids on one side and the adults on the other. Most of the kids are now adults, which means we are down to 5, but 2 are teenagers and lets face it teens these days do not like being called kids. The food is always yummy! Than we clean off the table so the women can play some Skip-Bo. It wouldn't be Christmas without a game of Skip-bo, unfortunately my Mother-in-Law is always the winner... One of these times I will win!
What is your biggest Holiday cooking disaster?
Can't have a Holiday cooking disaster without cooking! I am one of the lucky few that hasn't had one of these (((knocks on wood))). Once I do I know I will share my embarrassing moment with all of you. Maybe I will cook something this Christmas and ruin it just so I have a story for you all to read! Well maybe not so I can stay undefeated!

Remember to stop by MomDot to get in on the fun... it is never too late as you can see! (click the pic above)
The Question is: Introduce us to your family and share Holiday pics of years past
I was afraid I had no past Christmas pics on my computer, but I scoured through the whole hard drive and found some SCORE!!Sassy was 5 this Christmas... man where does the time go? I just love the bed head pigtails and the smiley look! She loved that dog show play set! She is my animal lover!!!
Want to see why I call her Sassy Princess?
This picture just screams SASSY! This was one of my favorite outfits, especially the boots!
The picture below shows my whole dad's side... well minus my brother (he is taking the pic... sorry Phil)! You can look past me because I was lazy that morning and did not do my hair or make-up. Oops... should have known that this is the day to capture as many memories as we can on camera (blackmail moment diverted HA HA I was first!). Every morning we head over to my grandma's for danishes, hot apple cider, and presents. This is also going to be a bittersweet day, because this is the first Christmas with out my grandpa. It just won't be the same, but I know we will make wonderful memories nonetheless!
I had to choose this next picture, because I laugh every time I see it! See how the girls are as far away from their cousin they can get? Well my cousin had just gotten over the flu. Not a good thing to say in front of my germaphobe daughter. This was during her "fluphobia" phase where she asked "Am I going to throw up?" every 5 minutes! Thanks to her kindergarten teacher we entered this phase and it really hasn't left... the question yes... the germaphobia no.
Someone is missing though...
Yes, this year Princess in Training gets to join in all the family Christmas fun! I know I am going to spoil her rotten... Yes I know it is her first Christmas and I know she will not remember it, but I can't help it! I know I have a problem! I am going to cherish this Christmas, because this is the last First Christmas I will ever have with my own babies!Here was my catch up post!

MomDot does amazing work with networking and this party helps you meet other bloggers as well! I am so excited to be participating and can't wait! Each day there is a new question you answer on your blog and then make sure you sign Mr. Linky below that days' post! This is a great way to find new blogs, to give bloggy love, and recieve bloggy love as well!
Todays Question is brought to MomDot by LaPlates, Let's Go Strolling, and Natity's Design.
Day Two Question:
Traditions, what are some of your favorite family traditions? What are some that you want to begin?
We have many many traditions that we have brought together since Eric and I got married! Thanksgiving starts it with the passing out of ornaments. My grandmother has given us ornaments every year since we were born. I cherish them all and I love that my tree now has 28 ornaments that have been given by her!
The second weekend after Thanksgiving we decorate for Christmas. We all get into it and make this place very festive! After 8 years of marriage we have accumulated quite a bit! My mom has started up her toll painting business after a few years of hiatus and am looking forward to getting some of her pieces for our house!
Christmas sometimes seem to be our busiest holiday, because we fit in 4 different parties every year! We have 2 on Christmas Eve (my mom's side and hubby's dad's side). Then on Christmas day we do the same (my dad's side and hubby's mom's side). This year is a tough one because of the economy, so we are really trying to focus on what Christmas is really about! It sometimes get lost in the commercialism, so we decided to stress why this holiday is important!
Every Christmas we do take Princess Sassy to see Santa and this year we take our Princess In Training as well. They will ask Santa for one gift, usually the big gift, and on Christmas morning they will find these gifts unwrapped under the tree. We do veto things that are way out of their league so to speak!
I have thoroughly enjoyed participating in this blog party! Come back to see more! Thanks MomDot!!

Princess In Training's new nickname is 'bubbles', which speaks for itself, because yes we now have drool! She gnaws on everything in sight. I see teeth in her future real soon! She is starting to laugh as well, which makes playtime that much more fun!
Soccer is coming to a close and this house is starting to get sad. This has been an awesome season and the Silver Strikers have played their hearts out! Sassy is really coming into her own as a great soccer player! She is getting the nickname of 'Cheetah' for her running speed.
Tonight is exciting as well! UCLA Bruins basketball kicks off it's 2008-2009 season tonight and this house is all a buzz. Tonight begins the countdown to March Madness! The Bruins almost made it all the way stopping short at the Final Four. We are going to root yet again for an awesome season! GO BRUINS!

I will honestly say that I voted for McCain (I liked his ideas). I was disappointed yes, but I am moving on because I have faith God has a plan. As a nation I am proud, because as a nation we got passed racism and voted the first black man as the president of the United States of America. We or you all made history and for that I am proud!
I am a resident in the state of California and for the first time I am saddened and disappointed with this great state! We may have gotten over racism of ethnicity, but people still feel that they have the right to dictate how people should live! So what if a woman wants to marry a woman, or a man a man. Who am I to judge them? It isn't in my power to do so. There is a higher Judge that has this power and Him only! I am a Christian and Christ is my savior! The golden rule states "Treat others as you would want to be treated". We really need to start living by this rule! Not only is it in the Bible, but most classrooms have this as the number on rule to follow! We are told to love everyone, even our enemies. I believe God put us here to educate people about the word of God but not to force it down their throats! Once they hear it is their decision to take it how they want to take it. They will one day be judged and again I don't have the right to be that person. They aren't hurting me with this decision. I am honestly sick to my stomach that this state feels that we can dictate how people should live! I am God's child and I will educate others without choosing for them! As a teacher I know that marriage let alone gay marriage is not taught in the school. This was a scare tactic and that is it! It doesn't matter if I believe in the choices people make. They are the ones who are to live with it not me! We just took two steps back once again in the progress of this great nation! Let's make history once again and let everyone chose their own way of life as long as it isn't hurting others!
I am one to keeps controversial subjects to myself but as a parent I feel tolerance is getting lost in the mix with this! I teach my children to love everyone and I want to lead by example! One day my daughters could come up to me and tell me they are a lesbian. Will I stop loving them? No way! If they do I would hope that they have the same rights as everyone else!! Let's try and change history once again! I know it can happen!!

Sunday morning I got up and dressed in record time, got out the door and was the first one in the parking lot... at least first customer. Once I saw a car pull up I was out and near the doors. Well the lady that was coming forgot to change her clocks and was an hour early to do some shopping. An hour into my wait people started coming and waiting with me all the while I was thinking who leaked the info? Well Target let the masses know through the ad in the Sunday paper and boy did the masses follow! All in all it was a great time... I met a few people worth meeting! When 8 am came Angela was ready to sprint to the electronics. When the doors opened boy did she run! I won my battle and got my wii fit!
With all the hype I was worried I would be disappointed, but Nintendo does not! Move over Hubs because I have a new love of my life! Who thought video games could help you workout? It works on strength building, Yoga, aerobics, and balance. It tells you whether you are doing it right. My favorite so far... the Hula Hoop! Sadly Angela kicked my butt! I think I am going to forbid her from using it... there is no way I am going to get shown up by an 8 year old! I am finding a new love for Yoga and finding that I always did squats so wrong!
If you haven't purchased the Nintendo Wii you must get in with the times! Nintendo is geared more towards kids, and who could go wrong with moving around while playing video games! I sweat every time I play! If you haven't played Mario Kart you must, because you will be hooked! Who wouldn't like racing loved ones while pelting them with red shells, or waving good bye as you soar by using the bullet! There is no need to worry about games where killing and gore are the appeal!
Angela and I give the Nintendo Wii and the Wii Fit 2 thumbs up! Worth every penny!!

Mondays can be hard, so I am going to start them on a funny note! A Monday funny will either be a video, cartoon, or even just a picture that will get chuckles or "rolling on the floor laughing"! For my second Monday of doing this I am choosing a video that upon seeing I couldn't stop laughing! I know you will be on the floor soon!!
