Well, my husband (the protector) called the police department about it today and they called me to file a report. It seemed really fishy to them as well. Who knows. . .maybe it's legit, but I'll gladly give up a carpet cleaning to be on the safe side. If someone shows up at my house that I don't know, I'm supposed to call 911 (so if I don't know you, today would probably not be a good day to visit. . .heehee.) Anyway, doors are locked, phone is in hand and I say. . .bring it on! Just don't come and wake us up during naptime.
***They did show up this afternoon. I didn't answer the door and they soon left and pulled into a neighbor's house. Hmm. . .did they win a daily drawing too? What are the odds. . haha. I did call the police about it. Jeremy, it sounds like you were right. . .Kirby vacuum salesmen. I mean, I understand door to door salesman, but don't lie and con your way into people's houses! The last thing I need is some high pressure salesman pushing something on me. I'm not good at saying no because I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings. . .that's what husbands are for, right? Oh, and guess who rang the doorbell right in the middle of naptime? The police following up on my report. Arghhh. Interesting day. I enjoyed dinner tonight, however, with my friends. Thanks ladies!

Here it is. . .thank you for sending me pictures of all your beautiful decorations. I had planned on playing the traditional "O Tannenbaum." I changed my mind at the last minute. A few years ago, Ryan and I realized that we did not know all of the words to simple Christmas songs like Frosty the Snowman. That prompted us to pick a few songs each year and learn all of the verses. I have a problem with this thing called memory and I can't remember the ones I learn from the year before. . .but, anyway. . .I chose this song because it's one of the favorites that I've learned (and later forgotten.) I encourage you to look up all of the verses. . .what powerful lyrics!
So, on this chilly, snowy day (well, for those of you in my neck of the woods) grab some hot chocolate, snuggle up in a blanket and enjoy! Don't forget to scroll down on the left hand side and pause the music player before starting the slide show.

So, I'm feeling like a bad guinea pig mom lately. The other night we completely forgot to give them their treats (which usually consists of veggies) until 11:30 pm. And, they were completely out of hay. At least we still buy them the expensive Oxbow hay because it's so much better than what you find in a pet store. Only the best for them. . .even though they don't get quite the attention anymore. We are supposed to cut their nails every 6 weeks and I think we've cut them 3 times since Olivia came home. One such nail-cutting was on Sunday and I decided to take some pictures of them during their mani-pedis.
