Christmas 2010

Wow!  I can't believe Christmas has arrived, well almost.  Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and luckily I get the day off work.  I am done with all my Christmas shopping, wrapping and baking.  Santa is all set to come tomorrow night and fill the kids' stockings.  The kids are both home with Dan today.  He was lucky enough to get two weeks off since he works at a school and X has the same two weeks off.  Me on the other hand, I get Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve off.  I did take Monday & Tuesday off so I get a five day weekend.  Dan's birthday is on Tuesday.  So we will be doing something fun for it, although I'm not sure what.  I do want to go sledding some time this weekend though.  The weather should not be too cold and we're supposed to get more snow tomorrow.  X has been playing outside pretty much everyday and  he just loves it out there.   He can stay outside for hours.

Supernatural - Appointment in Samarra

Looks like this was the last episode for the year and they left it at a cliffhanger of course.  Starts out with Dean going to see a Dr at a butcher shop.  He wants to die and come back to meet with Death.  So he does and meets with Tessa (a reaper).  He asks her to get her boss and she says he's busy and she can't just call him but he comes on his own.  Dean tells Death that he wants to bring Sam's soul back to him and that he'll give him the ring back for it.  Death says that he can bring the soul back and put up a wall so Sam won't remember Hell.  He wants Dean to wear the ring for 24 hours and do Death's job.  If he takes it off then the deal is off.  So Dean comes back to life and tells Sam & Bobby that he's going to do it.  He puts the ring on and Tessa is there to help him.  First up is a guy robbing a store and he gets shot by the owner.  No big deal for Dean.  Then a guy having a heart attack, again no big deal for Dean.  Then at the hospital it…

Supernatural - It's been a while...

I kept meaning to post about the episode "Clap Your Hands if you Believe".  It was a good episode and I love it how Dean got "abducted" and then he fought back and they didn't want him.  Turned out it was fairies and they were taking first born sons because the watch maker made a deal with them.  Sam could have made a deal with the head fairy but he decided not to.  It was a good episode.  I did not get to see "Caged Heat" yet but I heard that Meg is back and so is Castiel.  Here are some pictures from both episodes.

Last weekend and more

Last week we were all still recovering from Strep.  O developed a rash on Sunday night and she had been complaining of her throat hurting and she had a fever.  So I took the day off last Monday and took her to the Doctor and she had Strep.  I'd had a sore throat since Friday and Dan was starting to get one too so the Dr gave us all antibiotics.  Just a couple more days of medicine.  Apparently the kids' medicine tastes "yucky" and they hate taking it.  At least we are all feeling better now.
I'm nearly done with the Christmas shopping and X has been a great helper wrapping.  He writes the names on the labels for me and puts them on along with a bow.  This past week he had his Winter show at school.  It was very cute.  Saturday we went to the Orchestra Hall to see them perform.  I had never been there and the kids thought the place was pretty cool but they got bored just watching an Orchestra play.  We walked around downtown for a little bit and then headed home …
