In happier news

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

Personal to the hubby: Welcome to 32 honey. I love you.

Distressed

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

My Wiggly World as I know it is shocked. Greg Page (aka, the Yellow Wiggle) is leaving the group. He’s the founding member and the main lead singer. He will be mightily missed by the Anc Fam.

tidbits

Wednesday, November 29th, 2006

Ferris Beuller has gray hair and Gidget is pimping osteoperosis drugs. It’s sad when celebrities age. On the other hand, That Girl is 69 and looks fabulous.
Sad though that Matthew Broderick apparently has as little fashion sense as his wife. Seriously, two different plaids and stripes?
And just a little aside for Victoria Rowell, you’re 46, […]

The stockings were hung

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

Our stockings came today! Well, three-fourths of them anyway. I hope to goodness the last one comes soon. In any case, they are bigger than I thought and now I’m going to have to go shopping again (the horrors!) because the 5 items I got each of the kids are not going to fill them […]

The post in which I use parentheses

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

Yesterday my MIL was going to put up all her Christmas decorations (this is no small task) and so we dropped Tabitha off to help as that is one of her favorite things to do. So we just had the one kid all day.
First stop was recycling. Now, recycling guy is like, very into […]

The dress

Friday, November 24th, 2006

We hit Fashion Island this morning with the sole purpose of not leaving until we found a Christmas Eve dress for Daisy. We searched everywhere and finally made a decision at Hanna Andersson’s. I’m so pleased as it’s just perfect, nice, but not so dressy that she can’t just wear it for regular clothes as […]

The Giving of Thanks

Thursday, November 23rd, 2006

Today was wonderful We put out munchies of veggies and dips, crackers, hummus, cheese, and stuffed olives and my mom and sister came over for a couple hours to partake of the food and visting. Then we all went to my in-laws’ and my BIL came over as well. There were more munchies […]

lost

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2006

Two things are currently lost in the Anc house and neither one makes sense. The first would be my small colander. It goes in a very specific place and everyone in the house knows that spot so it’s not a matter of it being put in the wrong place. Well, I guess it is simply […]

Universal Sunday

Monday, November 20th, 2006

Chris had decided that he wanted the two of us to go to Universal Studios for his birthday. Now that’s not for another week, but we chose this past Sunday as the day to go. Our goal was to do everything we didn’t do in June when we went as a family. We didn’t get […]

Saturday past

Monday, November 20th, 2006

On Saturday we headed out to the mall because they opened up a Friends 2B Made store. It’s owned by Build-a-Bear and is essentially the same concept, but instead of stuffed animals, you make dolls. Very cute! They have two sizes to choose from, a rather spindly legged 12-inch doll reminiscent of Groovy Girls and […]

I need a nap

Thursday, November 16th, 2006

I’m too tired to blog, though I did compose a brilliant post in my head while getting myself lunch
Two nights in a row of going to bed too late and two mornings in a row of getting up too early = a very tired mama. I cut lessons short after math because I […]

movie beat

Tuesday, November 14th, 2006

Last night Chris and I watched Friends with Money which was definitely enjoyable, but I wasn’t ready for it to end where it did. It kind of gave a snippet of these people’s lives and then it ended. But I didn’t feel cheated, I just wanted more. I guess that’s a good thing as opposed […]

We saw fish!

Friday, November 10th, 2006

Today was the Aquarium’s first ever homeschool day. We got in at a super discount and they didn’t allow any school groups to come. So no yellow busses pulling up with 100 children and only 3 adults. No trying to look at something and get shooed out of the way so a school group can […]

Score one for Santa

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

While Tabitha was in hula, Chris, Daisy and I killed some time at Target. They very recently came out with big and lil’ sister Cabbage Patch Kids and I had decided Santa would get them for the girls in addtion to their non-joint gift. I’ve also been searching Cabbage Patch Kids whenver I see them […]

Is it Wednesday?

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

The kids and I went to Disneyland today because we could. We stayed about 4 hours and had a pretty good time. It wasn’t as hot today, only hit 80 :rollseyes:
We went straight from Disneyland to baton. Did I mention Tabitha started baton last week? I should check my archives but I’m far too […]

crash landing

Monday, November 6th, 2006

I hate the caffeine crash that plagues me whenever I’ve consumed overly large amounts of caffeine for two or three weeks and then suddenly go back to caffeine-free. I’m currently drinking just enough caffeine to stave off the horrendous headaches I’ve mentioned before, but the tiredness overwhelms me. I will be sitting there on the […]

Cave girl

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

We’re reading about nomads in history and one of the activities is to do a cave painting. All you do is take a grocery bag and crumple it up and then uncrumple it to similate the texture of a cave wall and then paint with red and brown. What I did was tape her paper […]

well crap

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

Maybe if your kid is coughing up mucus, maybe, just maaaybe, you stay home from kid classes so as not to spread your kid’s germs to other unsuspecting children. Oh and of course it’s the one kid Daisy held hands with during a dance. So yeah, she’s sick and neither she nor I got any […]
