sHe'S nOt a LitTLe GiRL aNyMoRe.......

Taylor has said all along that when she turns 18 she wants to get a tattoo.....
So her and her dad were going to go together and get one. But I think she got tired of waiting on him, his work has kepy him very busy and all of Christmas vacation he has been she decided to do it alone!!!!! WOW was she ever a trooper!!!!!! OUCH is all I can say!!!
But I think it looks very nice. She got it on her side so it is not going to show very often. And that made us happy that she really was getting it for herself.....

chRiStMaS eVe sHoPpiNg....

So my first thoughts when I decided we have to go to the mall on Christmas Eve day to do almost ALL of our shopping was......oh my gosh...have you lost your elfin' mind Missy!?!?!?!?!?{{sorry had to do that!!!! I thought it was funny...go ahead you can at least smile!!!!}}
But I have to say.....I may start doing ALL of our shopping on Christmas Eve!!!!! It was easy, I am not joking....I do not think we waited in line at any store we shopped at other than WAL-MART but I think we all know how annoying WAL-MART can be on a good day!!!!!! And I only stopped there to get veggies for the veggie tray......but come on people I am not sure that the people at the cash register have the same sense of urgency as I do......UGH!!!!! But as for my day of shopping it was a good one and I hope the kids are happy with their gifts!!!!! And I hope you all have a great Christmas, eat lots of yummy food, and enjoy your family and friends as much as I plan to.
Merry Christmas from The Jensens

ChRiStMaS iS cOmiNg....rEaDy oR nOt

Well here I sit at the computer on December 23rd. The kids last day of school.....for the year!!!! :0) And wonder when I am going to finish my Christmas shopping!!!!!!! The weather is suppose to get kind of.....well let's just say crappy!!!! So I guess I may have to skate to the mall.....but I know my kids will love my efforts!!!!! {{you can insert sarcasm at any point here!!}}
Anyway what I am trying to say is I think Christmas has snuck up on me this year......oh man who am I trying to fool it happens to me every year!!!! Maybe I need to join all of the crazy{{not to offend any of you I use that term in a FUN way!!!}} people the day after Christmas and shop til I drop and get all of my shopping done for 2010....hmmmmm now that sounds like a plan.
I have had alot going on lately and have not blogged very much...but was reading some blogs this morning and stopped by here and had to do a post like stop by and check her post out!!!!
She just talked about some of the things we do for Christmas morning and Santa to make memories for our kids. So do you do anything crazy or fun???? Our Christmas Eve consists of wrapping gifts until midnite or later and Christmas morning comes no later than 5 am for us!!!! We wrap ALL of the gift on Christmas Eve...we never have gifts under our tree for our when they come down the stairs on Christmas morning the tree is bursting with gifts!!!
At our house each child has their own color/print of paper. Each child has their own "santa sack" that their Santa gift comes in. We do the stocking first before they open any gifts. We used to wrap every little thing in their stockings...but ugh....we stopped doing that...that took FOREVER!!!!! I just love Christmas!!!!! But now that the kids are getting older the "Santa" factor is missing.....but I know they still are happy to come down the stairs on Christmas morning!!!! I would love to hear your stories so if you do a post about this please let me know!!! If I do not get back on here before Christmas I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your families!!!!!!
