It's 2009!

Hi. It's me Leslie. I've been abducted by aliens. I was bound and gagged by 3 slender white gooey noseless creatures. They took me to their mother ship and demanded to know more about the shopping habits of humans on the planet earth. It made sense to me that they would decide to steal me since I am well versed on the patterns of sales and have the uncanny knack to find deals and steals. I have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to shopping in the northern hemisphere. We discussed the sale Dillards has annually on January 1st. A whopping additional 50% off all sale items. They were immensely pleased with this information and decided to let me go. I was released just in time for me to enjoy the sale as well. I bought 2 sweaters, 4 tops, 2 pair of socks, one jacket, and two pair of shoes. I paid 20 dollars. OK. I'm totally kidding about that part. But I did get a good deal.

I'm sorry to all my fellow bloggy buddies out there, I've missed reading and knowing whats going on in your lives, and I missed blogging about my daily nonsense. I am going to try to be better. The holidays are officially over. I think. So I'm going to give myself a pass since I am not in my normal "place and space."

Anyway lately we have had 6 people sharing one bathroom. Good times. Good times. My dh is here and my step kids were also here for a short visit. So this life in this house, has been chaotic, loud, busy, non stop, and loud. Did I already say that? OK. It seems that we ate continuously. And then when we were done eating, we were having dessert. Once we were done with that, we talked about what we would eat the next day. I don't even want to see a scale. Really. The thought is horrifying. But I wouldn't mind seeing another slice of that marble cheesecake. Can someone say, yummy??

My step son Devon is now officially taller than me. It took him 15 years, but he has now reached and even surpassed 5"7". (Me) Alyssa is a beautiful young lady. Growing up way too fast I would have to say. I remember when I was 10. Time sure flies.

Let me share a few pics: Me and Corona. He feels very festive and merry. Even if his face suggests otherwise. He loves to dress up. I have other pictures to prove it.

My darling daughter Alexa.

Alexa and Alyssa. And if you must know, I've dreamt about naming my daughter Alexa since approximately the year 1988. It's true. So while Alyssa was born first, I had dibs on the name long before I ever knew or met her father. ((wink.))

Devon, Alyssa and Eddie at the front door. (mom's house) I can't explain why they are not smiling in this picture. Maybe it was because it was cold outside. Or perhaps daddy had just said that he was going to eat all of their candy. Or because they are related, and have that "I don't feel like smiling gene." Yes. That must be the reason. At any rate, here they are:

OK. That's all the pics I've got for now. I just wanted to get online and let you all know that I did manage to survive. Happy New Year! And belated Merry Christmas! I hope you all had nice holidays with your loved ones!
