New Years Eve Plans

Our big New Years Eve plans are to stay home, have friends and family over for appetizers and to play the Wii.

Our menu for the night is as follows:

Chicken Wings
Cheese Dip
Spinach Dip
Potato Skins
Cheese Sticks
Chips with dip and salsa
Ham Puffs

So what do you have plan?

** Happy Monday **

I'm not quite sure what is so happy about it. Maybe it's because I'm live, yeah that it. It surely can't be the fact that I have to go back to work after being off for 5 days and I know it's not the fact that I get to go do my Annual visit with the OB this morning at 9:00 am. So yeah it's the fact that I'm alive, I do have a job, I do have a house, a car, and a loving family - husband and son. So Happy Monday.

It's almost New Years Eve, do you have any plans yet? We do it's nothing major but you'll have to come back tonight to see my next blog to see what our plans are... I can tell you it's nothing like are New Years Eve 5 years ago. We were in NEW YORK CITY... That was awesome.

Boy oh Boy has this been one LONG week and I'm glad it's FRIDAY! I don't think I could do any more days at work. In case you didn't know, could care less or just forgot, I'm a Commercial Insurance Agent and Janaury 1 is, always has been and will always be on of the busiest times in the insurance world. Why you ask, what is so special about January 1. Well it's because over 50% of the business Workers Compensation policies renews. So I'm busy working on Work Comp policies as well as issuing renewal certificates. It's always crazy and for the most part it's hard to get into the Christmas "Spirit" but I'm happy to report that after next Thursday's appointment ALL of my January 1 renewals will be done. WOO HOO that's a whole week before Christmas and 13 days before the new year....

Any who, it's Friday and we have big weekend plans here. Were heading to DISNEY WORLD tomorrow. We are taking our two nieces and MIL with the 3 of us. We are just going for the day, but we have never seen the Magic Kingdom decorated for Christmas. I can't wait.

Then Sunday we have family in town and we are having a dinner after the Jaguar vs Packer game.

It's going to be a busy weekend again, but I'm hoping it's filled with lots of fun.

So tell me what's your weekend plans.

Christmas Picture

One more picture.. This is our family Christmas Picture that will be on our Christmas cards this year

Family Pictures

So Saturday we had family picturs taken with Joey's family. There were 9 of us: Me, Joey, Benjamin, Joey's Sister Karla, her husband Charlie, their daughters Brianna and Kaitlyn, then Joey's Mom Kerry and his Dad Jerry. It was a crazy mess. We went to Portrait Innovations I love that place. They have taken all of my son's pictures since he was 1 (that's when they opened here). Saturday was crazy in there we had 12:00 appointment for 9 people. We got there at 11:45 for our 12:00 appointment, by the time we had the pictures taken, picked out the ones we wanted and paid the bill it was 2:45! Yes you see that right we were there for 3 hours. But that's not all.... we went next door to the Cheesecake Factory which is soooo yummy. So we ate lunch yes a late one.... Then went back at 4:45 to pick up our pictures and they were not ready, that's how busy they were. So we had to hang around for another hour to get our pictures. It was a long day but the pictures are wll worth it...
