After My Work Shift I Just Walk Away


Marcus on the netbook, Kiana on her phone

Charles on the computer.

After my work shift is over I'm not interested in being on a phone or computer. I immediately take off my headset and take a walk but as you can see my family doesn't mind.

She's Off to Visit Grandmother's House



Kiana left early this morning to visit her grandmother in California. Before she left she gave me a big hug and told me she loved me.

Have a safe trip kidlet.

Decorated for Christmas at Our House

I thought I would share a few photos of our Christmas decorated apartment.


I purchased this santa at a discount card store in San Diego.
A gag gift from a former co-worker.

I purchased this small artifical tree at Eddie Bauer.com
Charles and I purchased this snowman from a Hallmark store. I received the tea cup at last year's Women's Christmas Tea.
Marcus just finished moving the furniture around today. We can now see our big Christmas tree from the kitchen.

I Just Ordered Our Christmas Photo Cards from Snapfish


They were having a special off when you use MERRY2010. That saved me $5!

I decided to do something different this year and create a photo collage card. This way everyone would appear on the card.

The card turned out so nice. Can't wait to receive them.
