*The Fours* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all......

Just a quick drop in cause I, like everyone else right now is BUSY BUSY BUSY!!!! A week from today, probably around the exact time I am writing will all be over! lol! Presents opened, assembling toys, checking for!! But, its all worth it! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

List of Fours! 
Amy T. tagged me to do the list of fours. 
It's a fun way to get to know your 
fellow bloggers a little better. 
1. Four shows that you watch: 
*Law and Order SVU 
*In Plain Sight 
*The Closer 
(Thinking I might have a little
Detective in me?!?!? lol!) 
2. Four things you are passionate about: 
*Teachers getting respect 
*My kids 
*My Hubby 
*Twilight (or Edward! lol!) 
3. Four words/phrases you say a lot: 
*My dearest 
4. Four things you've learned from the past: 
*Never say Never 
*Forgive even if you can't forget 
*Keep trying 
*Never give up 
One of my FAVORITE quotes:  
Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will...
From the movie....Hope Floats :) 
5. Four places you would like to go: 
*Back to NY 
*Back to NJ 
*The Netherlands 
6. Four things you did yesterday: 
*Worked overtime at work 
*Went to the Chiropractor 
*Went to the store to get Brookie milk 
*Went to sleep (YES! I really do sleep! lol!) 
7. Four things you are looking forward to: 
*Going back to CHA in January and seeing old 
faces and meeting some new! 
*My kids faces when they 
open their Santa presents 
*My chiropractor finding the root cause of my 
pain and hopefully helping me heal 
*Breaking Dawn opening in 
theaters in November 2011! 
 8. Four things you love about winter: 
*Sadly, AZ doesn't have a winter like most....
but I can say I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEE my 
sweaters! :) 
9. Tag four people to play along: 

 *Sorry about the weird spacing...I copied my info from a word doc...and well???? who knows??? LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And I wanted to share some photos from Brookie's Christmas program yesterday at pre-school! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
