All I Want for Christmas...

In order to show that the Luke family (at least two of them) have already completely accepted the commercial side of this Christmas season, I present to you Regan and Hadyn's Christmas Wish Lists...get comfy...I'll add my own thoughts in parentheses and keep the original spelling, because it's just so cute). 

  1. Ice Cream Maker (we already have 3)
  2. Dipindots

  4. Pendo (I have no idea)
  5. Gttre (Got nothin')
  6. Doggy
  7. EZE Bac Micwav (EasyBake Microwave)
  8. Liv Doll
  9. Fla Scen TV (Flat Screen TV...I got my first flat screen TV when I was...)
  10. Gogo (I'm not sure what this is)
  11. IPod in blue

  14. Kitty that's brown
  15. Nal Polish that's sparkly

  18. A room with food in the room (We never let her leave the kitchen with food.  Apparently she's tired of that).
  19. Dollhouse bed
  20. Trning rack with clothes (turning rack, I guess like in stores)
  21. Dollhouse and dolls with furniture with it

  2. Liv doll
  3. Flip Flop slippers, pink, Justice
  4. Justice sequin jeans
  5. Jo-Ann kids sewing machine (my mom would be proud)
  6. Dip'n Dots maker
  7. I-Pod or I-Phone (what!)
  8. Justice sandstone skinny cords (skinny underlined)

  11. Barbie video girl
  12. Scrabble Flash
  13. Spy video tracker

  29. Light brwon boots
  30. Earrings
  31. My own flat screen TV
  32. EasyBake microwave
  33. GoGo Walking toy puppy (This was on Hadyn's list too, I'm sensing some collaboration on these lists)
  34. Justice on the Go Sugar Sweet Set
  35. Justice Blue Skinny Cords (Can you tell we just got a Justice catalog in the mail?)
  36. Laptop mouse
  37. $10,000,000 (I'll get right on that)
  38. Laptop in black and white
  39. Cream snow vest

  45. Candy maker
  46. Legos
  47. Sleeping bag
  48. Make-up set (WHAT?!!)
  49. A pink throne (why not)
  50. Dollhouse
I'm out of breath, and ran out of pretend money hours ago.  Luckily, they know these lists are just for fun, and they really aren't expecting really any of this.  I love Christmas dreaming :).  I remember going through the big Sears book every year and choosing something off each page with Rich and Kathi.  So fun...

Ummm...Merry Christmas

I decided to update my blog today.
I'm also sick...did I mention heavy doses of cold medicine.
Buttons were pushed, changes were made, and I lost my links.

All of them.

Blogs I follow.
The craft sites from which I steal countless good ideas and claim them for my own.

If you have any sort of sympathy for your sweet, runny-nosed, fuzzy visioned friend, please send me your blog links.  I'm sort of at a loss for how to continue on...

It's Not Late, I'm Just Stretching Out the Halloween Season...

We were lucky to go back to our old alma mater and spend Halloween in Moscow with Jeff's sister Cathy's family and the only friends who will still be our friends from the old U of I days, Dave, Christine and their boys.  We had a lot of fun trunk-or-treating, and we even spent an afternoon at the ice rink where Dave gave us all ice skating lessons.  Fun, no injuries, lots of candy...a very successful Halloween weekend...  

Ninja Regan

Queen Hadyn (do not say princess or you are likely to be banished)
The cousins, ready to hit the trunk-or-treat.  Quite the motley crew, a ghost, queen, black cat, ninja and a fireman.  Jeff's company would be very pleased with the diversity we have embraced...

Regan rockin' the rink.  She took to skates immediately, no surprise.  If my kids have all this natural talent, shouldn't I have a little...I don't understand genetics...

Hadyn after letting go of my hand.  She did awesome.  Once she started, there was no getting her off the ice.   Let's just say she slept very well that night.

The crew of cousins and friends.  Fun times...
