the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

My name is Tracy, and I am a pack-rat!! lol

I am slowly, and I mean slowly trying to de-clutter my home. I need to make it more streamline and wheelchair friendly.

When my parents were her I gave them a bunch of things for a thrift store my step helps run for charity. That helped to clean out our front closet.

Yesterday I moved, with help from the girls, my wooden file cabinet to my room as a bedside table/easy file access table. lol So far it is working well.

My next big move is to get my old desk on freecycle and outta here. Then my china cabinet as well.

There is also a big room move change coming...shhhhhh don't let the hubby know!! lol Although he will be doing the move for me!

I just cannot believe I am even up at 6 am. lol Hubby left for work and I cannot sleep. So here I am with a million lil things going on in my mind and making me nutz!!

Have a wonderful day/night wherever you may be!!

Christmas w/the Grandparents

My dad and step-mom came into town yesterday for a pre Christmas with them.
We all watched the game, ate pizza, and just hung out for the day. We all got to open
the Christmas pressies together. We still had a smidge of snow, so it made for a kind
of white Christmas.

Snow needs to go!!! lol

So, it is finally melting, but not fast enough for me. Now, I love the snow. It is so pretty. But 1 to 2 days is good enough for me!!

Daddy finally got home with my girls. Poor shelby is so sick. She got home, rinsed her mouth with listerine, crawled in to my bed and fell asleep. Ashley threw on some boots and a jacket and headed out side in the snow.

Then, last night, started the migraine from HELL!! It just went away about 30 minutes ago. Nothing helped. So took some ibuprophen and heated my gel pad. Got it on my neck and finally...buh bye migraine!!

Even with it, I sang at blogstar!! My parody of Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer. I have never sang on the net before. Have no clue what made me do it! Actully, did it for my friend Holly. She does gr8 broadcasts over there. So, here is my Rudolf parody:

Rudolf the Brown Nose Reindeer

Rudolf the brown nose reindeer
had a very dirty nose.
And if ever smelled it
you would even say its gross.

All of the other reindeer
wanted him to stay away.
They didn’t want ole Rudolf

sticking his nose in their face.

Then one crappy Christmas eve

the fat man came to say,
Rudolf stick your nose in my butt

Then how the others loved him
and they shouted out yippe. (yippee)
Rudolf the brown nosed reindeer
you'll brown nose in history.....

And the crowd goes wild!!! lol

Snow Snow Snow Snow...

December 17, 2009...whew what a day! The snow started at 6am and did not not quit until 10pm or so. Austin's bus from school got stuck, so two smaller buses came and pulled them out. Rog has still not been able to get home. They shut down the highways into the valley here. He picked the girls up at their cousins, and hopefully they will get home sometime today.

Shelby is sick and I just want my baby girl home. Ashley wants to see the snow. lol

Sadly, last night, there was already a death on the highway. Black ice! Just want my family home safe.

It has snowed here before for a day or so, but nothing like yesterday. I took pics all day. Here are a few from yesterday:

here are a few from today:
