Salvador came over the other night with his dad, sister and his nephew, Ishmael. He has GOT to be the happiest baby ever. He is ALWAYS smiling. It was SO much fun playing with him but even MORE fun watching Salvador with him. Look the smile on Salvador's face. :)
And one more......

I was back to Wenatchee earlier this week for computer training for this new job of mine. WOW! LOADS of information. I HOPE I can remember just a quarter of it!! LOL I am SO impressed with this organization. WOW!! We'll see how I feel in a few months huh?! Yeah, I bet that's what a lot of you are thinking. LOL Well, if this orientation/training is a preview.....I think I'm gonna be pretty darned happy!! :)
One of the things we did last week was a 'personality test'. Some of you have probably done one before...I know I did in a Interpersonal Communications class I took. You go through 4 different groups: Extroversion vs. Introversion, Sensing vs. Intuition, Thinking vs. Feeling, and Judging vs. Perceiving. Each group has a list of qualities. You pick the ones that MOST suit you and which ever side has the most 'you' qualities is your 'preference'.
I am an ENFP: (Extrovesion/Intuition/Feeling/Perceiving). Most of you who know me probably wouldn't be very surprised. LOL
At the end, when you determine your 'groups', each one has an explaination, which SHOULD fit YOU AND a short list of 'Occupational Trends'. This is what it says of ENFP:
I think it 'fit's' me what do you think???
So, YES! I am home again. My family was SO happy to have me back and welcomed me with BIG hugs and kissses last night. It's SO nice coming home after being gone isn't it?? Everyone is SO happy to see you and have you home. Ahhhhh....
HOWEVER, the MESS that greated me wasn't quite so welcoming!!!! UGH!
So yes, I AM off today BUT GUESS what I'll likely be doing a BETTER part of the day?! MMMMhmmmmm........picking up/organizing/putting away/laundry etc.....
I am just THANKFUL that Anna (the SWEETHEART who cleans my house) is coming TOMORROW!!!!
It NEVER seizes to amaze me HOW MUCH of a MESS 2 children and ONE adult can make in a matter of just a few days!!!! BUT, you know what?? It's alright, cuz I LOVE 'em and THEY LOVE ME!!! What's a little...or A LOT....of mess among loved ones right? :)
I have a lunch date with a friend this morning (11:30) so I guess if I'm going to get ANYTHING accomplished I'd better scoot!!
I HOPE each of you are able to have some 'down time' to relax and enjoy the Season!!
I hope to be back with pics SOON.
God's Blessings to EACH of you!!!

Well, my blogging buddies THIS is a 'Li'l Yami' like the cup says and THIS my dear friends is ONLY THE BEST yogurt EVER! EVER I'm telling ya!!! If I could find it in the store I'd eat yogurt EVERY single day. For the REST of my life. I know plenty of you out there don't like yogurt. It's kind of one of those aquired taste's don't you think? I've never been a HUGE yogurt fan. My 'favorite' (before Yami of course) was the Yoplait, Light, Thick and Creamy. It was the ONLY yogurt I'd buy for me. The kids like and eat the Yoplait, Light but me...gotta be thick and creamy. Well, the hospital up here has 'Li'l Yami' and the kid's SCHOOL's have 'Li'l Yami' but I can't find it at the store. :( THAT makes Stacey a not so happy girl. BUT, while I was in Wenatchee this week, the hotel I stayed at had Li'l Yami's out EVERY morning as part of their breakfast. It just MADE me happy. I was a yogurt eattin' girl!! Stashed a few too. Shhhhhh! I MIGHT have enough to hold me through until I go back on Monday!!

Joe left yesterday morning. Jury duty. 'Cept he called me about 10:00am and told me guess what???? Well, OF COURSE.......they dismissed him. :)
Turns out he NEEDED to be home anyways---oh the drama---but that's not a story for today....
The kids are GREAT!! Nikki stayed with a friend...had her FIRST game---she's cheering for the basketball team. She wasn't pleased with her performance BUT it was her FIRST game. She'll do better tonight. :) YES! She has ANOTHER game tonight, home, and HOPEFULLY we'll be home in time to make it!!!
Samuel stayed with my friend Sonia and her family. When Joe went to pick him up yesterday....he DIDN'T want to come home!!!! She, Sonia, is one of THE SWEETEST people I have EVER met. And her family.....AWESOME! You just can't help but LOVE them!!! I was going through some tough times about a year or so ago--God KNEW what I needed, or WHO....and then there was Sonia!!! :) I am SO THANKFUL for you Sonia!!! She's helped me through some tough times and ALWAYS keeps me focused on what's IMPORTANT!
Anyways, back to Samuel....He's only ever spent the night at his BF, Riley's, house so although I wasn't worried really....just wondered how he was going to do when it came time to go to bed. As it was, Sonia was OFF the first night--perfect!!! Well, he did great. Sonia 'momma'd' him just like his Momma does! :)
I'd HOPED to leave you with a few pictures.....ahem.....but it would SEEM my dear, lovely, wonderful husband TOOK my camera home with him. DOOFENSCHMIRTZ! <- (that 'word' is off some cartoon Samuel watches and it just STICKS!)...oh, and of COURSE, I say that ONLY in LOVE!!! :)
So, no pics. I've never uploaded pics from my phone. They just don't seem to be THAT great on my phone much less anywhere else. Maybe one day I'll give it a try but that day isn't today.
We didn't end up going to Leavenworth the other night either. Would you believe I came home and took a nap. Wouldn't believe it would you???? Well, I did. And by the time Joe was able to awaken me from my slumber, I didn't want to GET UP much less go to Leavenworth so we went to another local restaurant...The AppleWood Grill. It was alright. The service was great until we wanted to leave and then we couldn't get them TO COME and take our money....hmmmm. I had the 'Drunken Shrimp'. It wasn't bad....lots a shrimp....in a tequila, garlic, lime (butter) sauce. Joe had a salad...ohhh, if I could think of the name of the salad right now...but I can't. It was what he wanted....he was 'craving' salad. WHATEVER!
I shouldn't say that....I WAS craving a salad yesterday....that chicken, apple, walnut salad....ummmmmmmmmmmm. And let me just tell you, it HIT the SPOT. JUST what I wanted. Was it ever good. So I guess one CAN crave salad.
Well, we leave and go home today once class is over. Our manager/supervisor told us we could take tomorrow off if we wanted. SWEET!!! Don't have to tell US twice!!! Then we'll be BACK on Monday for more training, computer training for the week.
I'll be back sometime this weekend. I still want to post some Christmas pics. I took some pictures of some of MY favorite decorations. I just haven't taken the time to post them yet. Hopefully this weekend.
Have a WONDERFUL day!

Uhhhmm, Yeah...........It's GONE! He SCARFED!!!! It was the 'special' and it DID look scrumptious. Steak with a medley of peppers, onions and prawns overtop and some garlic mashed potatoes, a salad and of course their famous fresh beer bread. Mmmmm....I tasted one of his prawns and was it EVER yummy. It ALMOST made me wish I'd gotten the special too!! As you can tell, he THOROUGHLY enjoyed it!
I was HOPING to be able to meet up with my DEAR friend Kim while I was here.......for the WEEK....but darn it if she's working Mon-Wed!!! Ugh! I leave Thursday after class! Oh well............maybe, hopefully, next time?!Tonight we are planning on going to Leavenworth. We're supposed to get out of class a little early today so it will be PERFECT!!! And the plan is to go here for dinner:

And I ALWAYS call them 'she' or 'her'. I don't know why. I just do!! You SHOULD be able to 'click on the pic' to enlarge it. Check it out. See if YOU can figure out what it is she's holding. We've had a few ideas--anything from a river rat to a squirrel to a small dog. Your guess....
As you can probably tell I didn't make it to church. I had GOOD intentions-just not good enough I suppose. I was talking to my mom and then my dear friend Kim called. I hadn't talked to her in a few weeks and we were catching up. I'm GLAD we had the opportunity to talk--Kim is one of those friends that you don't talk to every day and can still pick up right where you left off last time-- but I'm disappointed in myself that I missed church! UGH!
I DO have a few other pics I wanted to post today but I HAVE to go right now. NOW I REALLY DO hear the shower calling AND my kids! LOL
I'll be back........will you??
Smiles to you!
Anyways, I went to check on a few BLOGS I've been following. That's ONE of the things about living on the West Coast....it's three hours later on the East Coast. Moving right along.......I first went here.....read her latest post (Dec 5) and then HAD to go HERE to check it out. All I can say is 'WOW!' and encourage YOU to visit them too!!
I'd ORIGINALLY planned on sharing a few things this morning BUT that will have to wait until sometime later today. I'm going to get ready for church now and then I have some things to do with the kids after. I LOVE that I will have Sat/Sun off from now on. That means NO EXCUSES for NOT going to church for ANY of us--well, with the exception of Joe, of course, who DOES STILL work nights. And I'm thinking Sunday should be our 'family' day now....get all the 'chores' done on Saturday so Sunday we can go to the movies, bowling, for a LONG ride, WHATEVER.
Alright....well, I can HEAR the shower calling..........
Until later on..........
