Here Comes Santa Paws!

Posted by PicasaIt's officially official! We've picked up our "pick of the litter!" Her name is Marley, after Jacob Marley in "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, although I'm sure a lot of people will think she's named "Marley" after the new "Marley and Me" movie that is set to be released later this month.
Lucky for us, Becca Jones agreed to "puppy-sit" for us until Christmas Eve. I'm not sure she knows what she's gotten herself into! Chelcie and I dropped at the sitter's house this aftenoon, but stayed for about an hour because we couldn't bear to leave her. She was having a blast running around playing with Becca's puppy. Chelcie left her t-shirt in Marley's bed so she could get used to the scent of us!
On a sadder note, I'm out of money and I just got paid yesterday. I had a little shopping spree today. My larger purchases were a rug for Addie's room, a new computer monitor for Tom's computer, and few little surprises for the kiddies! There is just not going to be a lot of "stuff" under the tree this year, and I'm hoping and praying that the absence of stuff will keep us focused on the real meaning of Christmas. It's home-cooking for the Crawford family until the end of January! Can you say B-U-D-G-E-T?!
We had a cut-throat game of Pictionary tonight and surprisingly everyone played and everyone got along. We even finished the game. Of course, the girls soundly beat the boys as we knew we would before we even agreed to play.
I've been struggling to finish Breaking Dawn, but I think I'll go ahead and put myself out of my misery and finish it tonight. Church at NorthStar tomorrow! I can't wait!

Spoiler Alert to any of my family members who may be reading this blog! Stop reading NOW and walk away. You don't want to ruin your Christmas surprise! Still reading? STOP! NOW! You can always come back and read next week.
Oh! One more thing worth noting-I came across a great website: I love it and hopefully, Mom, Lori, and Katie will too once they receive their Christmas gifts from me this year. I also hope that they are steering clear of the Crawford Chronicles this week.
