decorating cookies with Mrs Claus

I have been working like crazy getting Christmas presents made. SO I haven't updated my blog or done much else lately. In between all that Bella came down with walking pneumonia. She spent most of a week home from school even missed her school play where she was playing the part of an angel :(
She was very disappointed.

Dr gave her some good stuff though and she feels much better. So as a special treat she did get to go with Mrs. Tara and Brayden to see "The Princess and The Frog" on Friday.

Bella swears it was a date..... John says nugh ughhh! (that is her "boy" by the way has been since she was litttle.) My friend Leslie says it loooked like a date to herrr.
THey are so funny!

So SATURDAY.. ya it continues. I tell you I just love me some Tara. She is too sweet.
She hooked us up with reservations to decorate cookies with Mrs. Claus.
They are good friends with the owner of "Cookies By Design" This is the CUUUUTEST store everrrr! (awesome cookies too) There is still time to do this with your kids if you are in the Mobile area by the way. You have to make reservations. Call themm! Not sure if she is booked up but if she has cancellations CALL HER!!!

It is sooo much fun You will so enjoy it with your kids sooo worth it.

Mrs. Claus also read the children a couple stories and told them all about Santa and how they met and how she came to live at the North Pole. You can see how they were just hanging on her every word.

After that we had the twins, Mandalyn and Sheldon's birthday party that evening to go to. I figured I was already dressed... I know I know... I stayed to the side away from everyone, well, pretty much mainly just there with John, Tara, Beth and Mark. I did go talk to Joanne and her husband for a bit. I hated to get too close around everyone we have done soo good since the last bout of flu (then shingles and all) but I guess it was too late if we were gonna get it. I am just so terrified of those things mainly the shingles. ugh they hurtttt so bad.
I get a cold and I break out in them. anyway sorry for the ramble. Im tired.
IT WAS SO GOOD TO GET OUT. The pictures didnt turn out that good at the birthday party I took. The lighting was really bad in there. (not to mention I was exhausted)
and the kids were all over the place on these blow up jumpin thingssss. hard to hit movin targets.
we had to keep getting Bella to sit downnn! stop! dont get hot! we let her play, we aren't horribly meannn.
So anyway. It was good to get out. But I was/am exhausted. I could barely move when I got up Today. Price ya pay, but, The look in Bella's eyes and how much FUN she had. Oh to hear her telling her daddy all about Mrs. Claus and retell the story of "HOW MRS Claus MET SANTA CLAUS and how they got MARRRIED!!" was just oh so cute.
LOVE IT!! I would NOT trade it for ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD. SO GLAD I GOT TO HAVE that experience. Filing it away in my good memories to remember for when things aren't goin so hot!

We didn't get to go to John's dinner with his co workers that was sad. It was kinda impromptu. A little Christmas per say get together at The Oyster house. But I was so just wiped out I couldn't function. I have not done this much in years. But I am doing so much better right now than I have done in a while. That was alot for me I usually just go to the dr and I have to take a nap. John was exhausted from last week. He will catch up this week though

Ok still got lots to do.
Hope you all have a great week.
