UPDATE: Alan is at UAMS. A lot more injuries than originally thought. Mom talked to Dewana. Mom and Dad are headed to UAMS right now.
UPDATE: Mom and Dad stayed at UAMS until around 2 last night. They were able to speak to Alan. He has a broken hip, broken ribs, torn spleen and punctured lung. He was conscience while he was being thrown from the car. He was thrown from the window. Once the car stopped rolling, the axel was on Alan's head. The road to recovery will be long. He is incredibly lucky.
UPDATE: Alan is in surgery now for his hip. Mom & Dad are at the hospital waiting...

Anywho wah wah. Cry baby. I think whenever Scott and I make the decision to have children it'll be much better. I'll have a little nuget to keep me company and consume my time. I'm totally the momma/housewife type. It's all I've wanted to be my whole life. I'll be good to go. It won't be for at least 2 years so stop asking people!! We have to have a newly built (by the father-in-law...yay that's his career...discount holla) bigger home. Our house is so teeny. We'd have to replace the wine fridge for a high chair. Which obviously disturbs me. Which obviously means it's not time. But I do look forward to the time that it is time for that time! (confuse ya just now?)
Bed time. Nighty night

This is the main tree in the living room. Notice the soldiers which I love. And the cozy fire! Ahhh...
It's not really a secret recipe--i'll share--it's just a touch hard to make. You start with simply flour and eggs.
After we prepared our meal and were waiting on it to cook, we all opened our presents! I was thrilled to pieces when Scott and I got our own of this....

Enjoy this video my Dad made. It's only about 45 seconds and it's totally awesome (word of the night?)
PS watch for Landon scoring followed by getting totally knocked out with the ball.

I think the doodlebug has a bladder infection--again--so today is the beginning of a 14 day antibiotic. I hope it works. Poor little girl. She's just falling apart! Dr. Bob actually called me yesterday to talk to me about her. You can tell he's really concerned for her well being and I love that about him. She's not just a dog. He realizes how important she is to us. The reason I think she has a bladder infection is because she keeps having accidents in the house. Which, I told Dr. Bob, I think is her way of telling me 'hey Kara, I'm hurting' and he completely agreed. He said dog's do that. So hopefully this makes my little girl feel better.
Okay well, ugh. I guess I have to go to work now. Don't you think that everyone should have the week of Christmas off from work? I surly do. And probably the week after Christmas too. It would just make the world a happier place. I truly believe that.

I could do an entire post on her funnies. Maybe I will one day. She grabbed Dad's wine at the reception and gulped it down not realizing what she was drinking. So Uncle Rex said 'Mom do you want me to get you some wine?' and she said 'oh no! I better not.' LOL. She's funny.

Part of the reason I've been staying up so late is because Scott's been working well past midnight. And I just really can't fall asleep until he's in bed. Well, he actually finished with work at 10 last night so we decided to watch a movie together--State of Play. Super good. I had never even heard of it before but it was on our Demand so we went for it and we liked it.
I would love nothing more than to just hang at my house today, take a nap, do a little Christmas shopping and a little grocery shopping too, hit the gym and work on my 6 miles then come home and cook a yummy meal. I've got lots of lettuce in the fridge I need to use before it goes bad. But no, I've got that thing called a job that I have to go to. Darn job. Holly just had a bath last night and she's so soft and snuggly....she's makes such a great napping partner when she's all smell good. Oh well....
Anyone wanna prescribe me an ambien?

Today, I've been slightly productive. I have a Christmas project that I'm working on for the rents. It's quite time consuming. Obviously I cannot reveal my present but I totally will share the day after Christmas.
Ooookay. I guess I need to get off here and continue with the productiveness. Have a good one fellow readers.

They sang Christmas songs at church today which inspired me to make a Christmas playlist on my iphone. I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty proud of it. I kinda want to make copies so all of my friends and family can enjoy it. I listed to it the whole way back home today and LOVED.
Speaking of coming home, I had to get gas so I stopped at my favorite exit--Atkins--to fill up. As I'm getting my gas this truck pulls up beside me with, ready for it, a momma, daddy, and 4 baby shih tzu puppies IN THE BACK OF THE TRUCK. I immediately marched myself over there to tell the (WT) people that it was entirely too cold for the dogs to be in the back of the truck since it's 24 degrees outside not including the wind chill. 'Aw they fine' they said. 'Umm...no!' I replied. 'They're shaking.' UGH I wanted to freak out on them. I kept saying over and over 'it's too cold for them to be riding back there.' They didn't care. Then they preceded to try to sell them to me. Mom, Dad, and babies who, by the way, were ADORABLE...all for sell. I totally would take them but Holly would get very sad if a new dog came around. She would feel like she's being replaced. So I'm out. So I call my father-in-law, who has expressed interest in getting a shih tzu, and sprung the idea of getting a puppy for Christmas on him. He said he'd love to but no. Meanwhile, my dog is curiously starring out the window, whilst wearing her sweater as it's freaking cold outside. It killed me. I prayed that God would just wrap a blanket around the little guys while they were so cruelly being toted around in the back of a truck in the dead of winter by abusive people who only saw them with dollar signs in their eyes. It wasn't until I had already gotten back on the interstate that it dawned on me I should have bought them all and found them great homes. Then that made me feel even more sad/guilty that the thought hadn't occurred earlier. Hopefully, the cuties will get amazing homes and far away from those people.
Sorry to depress you. I cried if it makes you feel better. Alright, time to snuggle with my little girl who, I kept telling her the rest of the ride up, is a very lucky, spoiled, and loved puppy. As they all should be.

Brr...it's cold outside. I honestly like wearing my sweaters because it keeps me warm! I'm very cold natured. Mr. Bank Teller please give me a treat. I live for them....
There's nothing I love more than snuggling! Add a blanket in the mix and I am in pure heaven! I LOVE blankets.
I also love my new 'Queen sized' bed my Momma just bought me. I hardly ever want to get out of it because it's so comfy and I can stretch out if I want. Way better than the twin bed I used to have. In case you don't know, taking naps is one of my favorite past times...
This is the meal Kara made for Scott tonight. Doesn't it look yummy. Wish I was at their house tonight because I know they would have shared a bite with me.
*I'm turning into an insomniac
*I would love to take a nap right now
*I just found out estate tax is 35% which I find rude
*I find taxes rude in general. I hate seeing how much gets taken out of my check
*I miss my doodlebug. Can't wait to see her this weekend
*Changing lightbulbs scare me. I'm always scared I'll squeeze too tight and it'll bust in my hand
*Birds and fish scare me too
*My house is cold
*I need a vacation.

To give him credit, he has gotten better about hitting the snooze we just went to bed really late last night. I protested about 2 months ago with the snooze button by sleeping in the other bedroom until he promised to set his alarm for the absolute last minute he could to get ready in time. I think I made my point. It wasn't an argument, I was just like 'until you stop hitting that stupid snooze button I'm not sleeping in the same bedroom with you.' It pretty much worked. I gotta admit though I kinda loved that week of having my own bed. I've never been able to sleep with someone in the bed with me. I CAN'T WAIT to get a king sized bed. It will make me an overall happier person.
So since I woke up so early....on my day off....I woke up, made oatmeal with blueberries, wrote my Life blog, ripped the sheets off the bed & washed them, headed to the gym--rode the elliptical for 45 while watching Regis and Kelly. Went to Walmart, STOCKED my pantry and fridge (I almost want to take a picture to show you. I love when I have a stocked pantry and fridge) Got gas, deposited 2 checks in the bank, went to the Bentonville Butcher Deli, Dusted my furniture, made an amazing lunch for myself and Scott--a salad medley--pasta salad, chicken salad, salad salad, with homemade ranch dressing (naughty girl) and washed some towels-----all before noon. Since noon, I've written many drafts for my Life Gift-giving (love getting ahead) and now it's 2:00 and probably time for me to shower. I know--it's gross that I haven't done that yet but once I start blogging for Life there's no stopping me.
Alrighty seriously I'm craving a shower. AND I'm getting together with the girls tonight at Pesto. Love girls night! Happy Monday.....

Scott just read this post and said "that's embarassing."(referring to the photos) Nu Uh! I totally rocked the Moo Moo!!!!!! Only Torri, Squid, Rosamond, and Mahurin (my former cheer buds I know for sure read this blog) would get that. I totally loved the Moo Moo. Holla!

We're leaving January 23 and the flight is great. We leave here at 8 am and get into CB at 11 am. Such a nice change from those 5 am Caribbean flights. I think the first day we're going to go to the little grocery store and stock up our little kitchen we have. Maybe after grocery shopping we can squeeze in a half a day of skiing. I don't see why not! The next day is our anniversary and I love that we'll wake up in snow village heaven! (that's what I keep calling it)
I'm so looking forward to this trip! I'm totally going to record Scott's first attempt off the ski lift and then down the ski trail. Hehe! Can't wait ya'll!!!!!
