That must be one Scary Santa!

Pumpkin was all excited to see Santa, talked about it for hours when it came time this was the only picture The Wife could get. Luckily someone from the media was there and got a better shot that was featured in todays paper.

Sorry bout that

So I haven't been posting a whole lot, I am re-entering the Suck. You might refer to it as going back to work. I am having a hard time getting myself motivated to do this again. The wife is having a time this week with me being on midnight shift. Z is still a night owl, and The Wife is a one parent show these nights while I am at work.

The other thing that has me worried as of late is if I can pull this off. I feel blessed to have 3 jobs when so many people in the world have none. The problem I am having is the job that I really rely on, my part time paramedic job is driving my stress level through the roof. They have a had an influx of talented people come looking for work, which is great for the company but not so good for me. While the company saves on overtime, I am week by week concerned on if I will be receiving the amount of hours I need to keep the Marble house running.

I am dying to get back to school, but that doesn't seem to be working so well either with the amount of school loans out there and my lack of flexibility in my schedule. I really don't want to take 8 years to get a degree.

Good thing is everyone is doing fine. Mama and the Kids are all happy, and healthy. We are all waiting for spring, this being cold stuff sucks.

Thanks for Listening Merry Christmas, and God Bless!

Leave it to me to go Extra Commercial

You don't even know how many ornaments you have to buy just to make a 9' tree look half decorated!

You Spin me right round baby right round, like a record baby right round.

That is right it spins, check the star and the other decorations in the 2 pictures.

Santas entrance.

The Girls, being cute like they do.

Well, to keep you all up to speed. Everyone is home from the hospital, and feeling fine. Sleep is scarce, but we are making do. Pumpkin has become the little mama, "I holded the baby Z" she is always asking. Pumpkin and Grandma or Dwhamma made signs for Mommy and Baby Z's arrival home, Pumpkin was quite happy, she is just not a fan of the cold(do not comment on the trim it not supposed to be yellow, but I just haven't gotten to it when it is a decent day outside).
Overall my time off has been fun, spending time with the newly expanded family, watching Christmas Special Cartoons, decorating, and doing errands around the house. Today I had to call for reinforcements, when moving the chest freezer from the garage to the basement, I got stuck. You see I measured for width, and height is what got me. Never fear D was in the neighboorhood with a helping hand. It has been a great vacation, although it is amazing that it is almost over. Back to the old grind Saturday morning the only brightside of going back is the rest I will get in my downtime, no babies screaming there, although I will miss it.

Ain't she pretty!

Well she is here, Baby Z has arrived. Her debut was a grand success. Mom is doing well, Z is doing well. It was a hard process for Mom ,but she is a trooper. Baby Z is 8lbs 15oz, 20 inches long, with a full head of hair. She already has a good appetite, and the other functions all work well to. Hope to have her home in a few days, as well as her big sister is mad that mommy is not home.

There has been only one drawback. This evening when I was on my way home as I tried to remove the snow from my windshield a noticed a note. The note informed me that a truck had hit my car, and when I checked they sure had. So if you happen to see a Maroon Dodge 4x4 with a broken rear window, with a female driver Pa plate GPS 2762, Give her the Finger for me!
