My Favorite Things this Month - December

1. Etzy - Since I became unemployed, I sought to look for employment and start something on the side that would keep me busy while making money on the way and since I love going to Estate Sales, I decided to open up a vintage shop and so for today I have made 14 sales! On the other shop, I have sold 6 bags! This new venture is not replacing my income but I'm not sitting around for something to happen, I decided to make something happen. It can be slow at times but it is rewarding when someone buys something from my shop. I'll keep this thing going and see where it takes me.

2. Skinny Margaritas - Having lunch with my best friend, I discovered a skinny alternative to drinking margaritas without the mount of calories and still the awesome taste of a Margarita drink!

3. Christmas Snow - I'm not a winter person; I much rather spend Christmas in a beach blowing fireworks but once in a while seeing snow on Christmas day is ok. As a parent, I enjoyed watching my girls watching and playing with snow. Priceless.

4. Craigslist - Our leather couches were in such a bad shape we were embarrased and since I'm unemployed, we decided to find descent couches through Craigslist. At about 1:30am on the 26th, I found them and the next morning, we were on our way to Allen to pick them up. We're just happy, we don't have a furniture bill every month.

A Seaman Christmas 2012

Well, Christmas has once again come and gone and this morning the roads looked yucky so we decided not to risk it so the order of the day was to do nothing for a change and watch movies (Disney) of course, eat and eat and eat. So, here's just a little glimpse of the last three days!

Last Thursday, Sofia and Raquel had an early school release so I treated them to Chick Fil A. You can tell Raquel was super happy.

 On Sunday, John and the girls decided to decorate a gingerbread house and of course they were more than excited because it was candy decorations.

They paused several times to lick lick lick.

This is going to be a yearly tradition.

John did pretty good, as always!

Then I came with this crazy idea of "hey, I got some sprinklers, what do you think!" and this mess was created.

At the end, there was icing left over and I had another bright idea. 

Everyone was beyond happy.

Christmas Eve with the Dunn family! Always amazing!

Then on Christmas Day we got ourselves Snow! So, we went outside!

Six hours later, we got ourselves 2 inches of snow! 

I feel blessed!

And this is the sign of a good time had by all!

I Don't Mean On The Phone - Song Title

Sofia has been waking up signing for the last three weeks. This is one of many, many songs she comes out with. All original! All before breakfast.

And the one below was a Friday night a month ago where John turned off all the lights and use flashlights and they had a lot of fun while I was cleaning toilets. Yep, crazy things happen in this house. The tall light is John and the lower lights are Sofia and Raquel.

Little Saints Christmas Program

All Saints Little Saints Christmas Program 2012 and Sofia dressed as an Angel! She was excited to participate in a program where she has only sat in the steps like Raquel this year and sing with the rest of the children.

With her classmates!

I was surprised Raquel kept her headband in place!

After the show, all the parents got up close to the stage and clicked away!

Andrew, my nephew, was the Cow moons ago! 

My beautiful Angel!

Santa's Village 2012

It was the last day to go see Santa and thankfully it was a warm day! So, we sacrifice and turned off the Cowboys game and drove to Richardson.

Raquel was beyond herself to see Santa!

Raquel wanted to climb on top of Santa. They both asked for a Unicorn Pony. 

The Man without a Jacket.

Raquel was still beyond herself for touching Santa's beard.

Seaman Happenings

I'm back on the blogger saddle after blogger made me buy more space to post my pictures and I accepted. So, from now on, I will refrain from posting stupid stuff unrelated to my world only. Therefore, here's a quick rundown of what's been happening in the life of the Seaman family.

For Thanksgiving, Sofia's class made Indian hats and each child was given an Indian name, Sofia's name was: The Girl with the Soft Voice. I was surprised because she's pretty loud when she's in the house.

Sofia loves headbands and has them in all the colors you can imagine and she wears a different color every single day and this day she decided to share them with Coco Beware. He wasn't happy at all. 

I do like this look on Coco. 

Texas Weather: One day is warm and the other is cold. This day it was georgous so we did an activity outside and then some tea with cookies.

Tinkerbell Tea Set came in handy!

John took a week's vacation on Thanksgiving Week; I noticed he was rather bored and I said, "you know, let's clean our closet," he said, "No, let's replace the carpet."

My Father N Law is the man! Without his help John would still be working in our room!

John was tired! We barely saw him on his VACATION WEEK!

Thanksgiving Day, since the weather was warm, John decided to touch on his Scottish 1/4 side.

Raquel loving on Grandma Libby. Coco too. 

Raquel and her cute curls! I've learned to love them. She gets so many compliments everywhere we go.

At the park! 

The Christmas Tree. I much prefer a plastic one.

Helping John decorate the tree. They had a blast!
