People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.

Scrooge? or not

Well time flies by even when you have nothing to post. You will take note that I did put up a slide show of some FA pictures of my cute family. If you want to see the rest of them (and why wouldn't you?), you can visit this site. It is Amber's site for A Blue Iris Photography and she did an awesome job like always. Thanks Amber!

So I guess you are probably wondering what the title to my post means. Well, I have a confession. I haven't put up any Christmas decorations this year. Not even a tiny bulb. They are still all underneath my bed in who knows which boxes. I didn't really have the mental or physical energy to want to put it up while Regan would be running around reeking havok no doubt and wanting to touch everything and move it, lose it, rearrange it and more than likely break it. Then there would be Sophie rolling everywhere putting all of it in her mouth, where everything goes that comes within a 5 foot radius of her. The image in my head of this scene is not a pretty one, so I opted to forgo the probable disaster and keep my messy house just as messy as it is and not add to it. Some of you may call me a scrooge, but those of you who do probably do not have children (Kandra). If we were going to stay here for Christmas I would have at least put up a tree however, we will be going to Heber, AZ and I'm pretty excited. I will say that I do miss the tree and decorations. That was always my favorite thing growing up. I wonder what will happen next year when the probable mess will be even worse? Don't even want to go there right now. Well, that's all I have to say about that. Hope you all have great week. Peace out!

Well Miss Kristal, I think you are scrooge and I dont care if I have kids or not in order to justify my judgement. Although I dont have to have kids to see that your kids are pretty darn cute. You better tell Reagan and Sophie to be on their best behaviour when we see them because I wont put up with crying kids(hahahaha)
