We made it to Friday!

No choice but to be productive!!  We have so many people here everyday and Fridays are sometimes like Mondays!

Peyton and I went to see The Grinch on Wednesday night.  It was super cute and funny.  Go see it if you haven't.  Alli didn't want to go.  Peyton got his Dr. Pepper and popcorn and was a happy clam.

I'm behind on the TV show watching game.  I started watching Game of Thrones a couple of weeks ago.  I got the DVDs from the library and it took about a week to get through the first season.  Yes, I know, I suck at binge watching things.  The first couple of episodes didn't suck me in.  I was trying to figure out what was so great about beheadings and all the other stuff.  Then, I watched a few more episodes and I started to get sucked in.  I finished the first season and I cannot wait to get the second season.  Someone currently has them checked out, I put a hold on them, so hopefully, they come in soon.  The last episode of season one was great and I want to know what happens next.  Especially with the dragons.  I have the book set, but I haven't read them yet. 
Only four more Saturdays until my Victory Vixens play our first game. 
I am the captain this year.  As the captain, I've had to make some tough decisions lately.  I don't feel bad about it because it's not all about me, it's about the team.  We have had some teammates that have only made one or two practices since we started in August.  To me; this is in extremely poor form.  Why be on a team if you don't show up and work as a team?  Everyone showed up for picture day.  One of our new Vixens asked the other day "Where is everyone that was at pictures?"  Good question.  I HAVE THE SAME ONE!  Haha.  We do have this thing for nine free passes, you get nine attendance credits without actually attending practice.  I have to give these to people to get them up to 50%.  There are three that are really 18% and 24%.  They will be getting the minimum playtime, while the person with 124% practice will be getting ample.  (We even have extra practices to help with attendance points)
BUT...I am super excited for our first game!
Last night, Alli and I went over to my moms to make Christmas candy.  We've done this as long as I can remember.  I made 80 peanut butter balls. These things are delicious.  Some peanut clusters, fudge and pretzels with chocolate and m&ms.  I think my niece will love those.  I'm going to get some for my secret santa person.  Oh, we have to call them holiday heroes, I forgot.
Do you bake goodies for the holidays to give to people?
We watched the Chiefs game while we were over there, what a start.  I didn't see the ending, but I heard and I was reprimanded at work this morning because I did not wear the correct shirt yesterday.  Sorry, Chiefs, I didn't mean to lose it for you.

  1. TGIF!
    This is another reminder of how horrible I am at watching TV. Seriously, I always fall asleep. It's like post hypnotic suggestion or something, but enjoy your GoT.
    That team photo is intimidating, hopefully more will actually show up.
    I don't traditionally bake holiday goodies, probably because my mom didn't. We lived in a town with a lot of good bakers (Italians), so we always had plenty!
