For the record: I AM happy Amanda is my sister. She's a great sister to have. She is a great secretary, she is a great computer tech, she is great to borrow any CD ever made from, she has her own DVD library...any movie in the world I want to watch? She's got it.
She makes me laugh, she hides herself when I want to get on the computer (sorry, Amanda is the only one who will get this one), she can speak Spanish like a pro, and she could supply the country of Beliz with socks.
In one word, Amanda is FABULOUS and I love her.

A few weeks ago he stopped by my work to say hi. At some point in the conversation he came up with this gem:
"If I didn't think about things, I'd have time for so much more stuff."
I tried not to laugh too hard because he was serious, but I did write it down, and now on occasion I ponder his words. There must be a deeper meaning somewhere...I'll keep looking for it.

THIS IS DAVE (the guy on the left)
"Today was supposed to be hair color day. Its a lot cheaper to do the home version than the beauty salon version. We set out all the plastic covering, plastic gloves, application bottle, the works. And I am the master color man who applies the color to my mom's hair. So she's all bibbed up and ready to go and I'm all set with plastic gloves when she realizes she doesn't have any of the hair color stuff. Such a funny scene. "
DAVE IS SINGLE AND LOOKING FOR THAT SOMEONE (Again, it's my blog Dave, I can say what I want)
SO WHAT I'M WONDERING MR. WOOLLEY IS THIS:
1. Do you do hair for people besides your mother?
2. How much do you charge?
3. Is there anyone out there in the blogging world in need of Dave's services? (I might could get you a discount, assuming Dave doesn't kill me for this post)

Erika: "Noelle, is Micky Mouse still Becca's boyfriend?"
Hey, I never promised it was a love story with a happy ending!

A few nights ago I was cuddling with Gabi in front of the fireplace. "Guess who I love," I said to Gabi. She looked up me and said all seriously, "Brian?" (Brian is a friend of mine who Gabi hadn't seen in MONTHS. I think Gabi is in love with Brian.) I laughed and said, "I love YOU Gabi."
Gabi looked frustrated and threw her hands up in the air and said rather loudly and with a tone, "If everybody loves somebody why doesn't anybody EVER get married???"
A very good question my adorable niece, a very good question indeed.

Last year I said, "Tradition or not, I QUIT!" ...until I get a husband who will put the lights on the tree for me. I HATE putting lights on the Christmas tree and last year I refused to do it. Seeing as how Becca refuses as well, we were in a no-win situation. So we committed the #1 sin in the Ed Platt book of sins: we bought a fake tree. PRE-LIT! It was well worth the money spent! I didn't get ornery and we didn't have to worry about our tree drying up, catching on fire, and burning our house to the ground.
Last night we got the tree out from storage and went to set it up. The key piece was missing. You know, the part that makes the tree stand up straight...the one piece that secures the entire 7.5' Norway Pine to the stand...gone, vanished, nowhere to be found. Not at our house, not at our sister's house where we store our Christmas decorations, and all 12 million of Becca's snowmen. (Really, during the month of December we have a snowman explosion at our casa.)
Now, had we had some smart man there, I'm sure he would have been able to figure out a solution. Had we not been soooo tired, perhaps we would have been able to figure out a solution. As it was, we went to Roberts and just bought another tree. And set it up. And it looks beautiful.
Kevin, my amazingly smart man-brother-in-law is now in possession of the old tree, and I'm sure that by tonight it will be standing straight and tall, lit and decorated, in some corner of his living room......next to the real tree we cut down, because my sister is not yet ready to give up on tradition. (She doesn't have to. She's got that husband to put lights on the tree for her!)
