Christmas Mouse

OK, so when I was little we had the "Christmas Mouse" come about a week before Christmas to leave us a little something in our stockings. That way we knew we were on Santa's nice list. It was just one of those traditions that my momma and daddy did. Well, at first Kent thought it was a crazy idea. So we didn't do it Jon Kent's first Christmas. In fact, I think last year was the first time we did it. Anyway, we did it this year for the kids and they thought it was the greatest thing ever. It was just a little something in their stockings and they were thrilled. They had a ton of questions like how did the mouse get in their stockings? Was it a big mouse or a little mouse? How did he get to our house.. on the reindeer? It was pretty cute. So in light of the Christmas Mouse coming to see the kids, he must also see the mommy and daddy.. right? In other words, Kent wanted a present.. lol. So he got one. I told him to pick a number between 1 and 4 (because that's how many gifts I had wrapped for him) and he picked 4 which was.. his PSP. Spoiled husband he is. So he got his "big gift" already. But I don't mind. He is enjoying it.. even as I type. And bonus.. Jon Kent can play it too. Zoey didn't care anything for it. Kent gave me a present too.. two books by Nicholas Sparks including his newest one. I can't want to dive into that one. I love allllll his books!

In other news, we had our first family Christmas gathering tonight. It was with Kent's side of the family. Aunts, uncles and cousins, etc. We had a ton of food and we decided to only exchange gifts with the kids this year. The kids were totally spoiled. They loved all that they got. And I forgot my camera. So yeah.. no pictures.

In other news that doesn't have a thing to do with Christmas... yesterday was college registration. Didn't go. Since it is possible for us to not even be here in a few months because of Kent putting in for a job in other state I didn't think it would be wise to start something that I couldn't finished and would waste money if I had to with drawl. It stinks, but all along I have prayed that God would just provide a clear path and that I would know I was supposed to do it or not. I still feel led to be a nurse but it just may not be as soon as I would have liked. If we stay here I will start in the summer if we don't stay here then I will look at colleges where we move to and start as soon as it is possible. But the desire to be a nurse is still very much on my heart. So we'll just have to see where God takes me.

Well, that does it for me tonight. I'm off to watch my hubby play his PSP.. or maybe start my book.

What an adorable idea! I may have to steal it. I got my husband a PSP a couple years ago for xmas and he hasn't put it down since...well, except to pick up the Wii remote, lol!

I love Nicholas Sparks too. He's wonderful.

And that's probably a wise choice regarding college. You'll get there...

Have I ever told you I'm an RN? Just not currently a working one at the moment. LOL
