One more thing though girlie blogger friends! IF youre in the snowman swap.. its time to get them finished up this weekend so you can get them mailed out by the 5th which is next wednesday! and dont forget that everyone needs to post pictures soon! I was going to set up a snowman group site.. but there was something that confused me about it when I tried.. so I'll check that out again when I get back from....NYC!

Thanksgiving was great.. alot of food was made and eaten!! later after dinner we went to friends to have dessert and play cards.. The kids watched the new "hairspray" musical.. (I'm about to watch it myself when I'm done with this post!)
OH, I just realized that the snowangel still is not finished.. she has little snowball garland that goes around where the box part opens. Oh well.. I have to remember to do that! gotta get off the computer now!!

These are clips of my daughter singing "Naughty Baby" She played the role of Irene in "Crazy for you" the past two weekends with the lake plains players. She just cracks me up.. Dont let the fact that there are 4 of these worry you.. the reason is that I am a dope and kept letting go of the silly button on the camera and then having to reset it and start over! DUH!!!
anyways.. enjoy! I cant watch with out cracking up!
(you will need to scroll way down to the music box on my blog and click on the first little button twice to shut that off so you can hear the videos!)
