WHAT TO DO WHEN I CAN'T FIND MY CAR???
Sooooooooo the other day I'm getting some last minute Christmas shopping done, when I get the very crowded parking lot and find myself walking around for quite a little while in the dark, SEARCHING for my beloved HUNK!! I can't find it ANYWHERE!!! I'm like, what in the world??? As I continue searching, I can't help but notice that SOME REJECT, left the lights on in their car...like really??? WOW!!!
Then as I get closer, I REALIZE,
that REJECT is ME!!!
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Soooooooooo HOW do I find my car WHEN I CAN'T FIND IT???
LOOK FOR THE CAR WITH
THE LIGHTS LEFT ON!!!

Your nephew ALMOST...
Burns down the whole entire house before 8AM!!!
Okaaaaaaaaaaay soooooooo that MAY be slightly exaggerated, buuuuuuuuut, here is what happened!!! LOL So a few Sunday mornings ago, we're all getting ready for church when Odin decides to make HIS OWN BREAKFAST!!!
Sooooooo while we're all getting ready, he goes to the pantry, takes out a thing of instant rice-a-roni, doesn't open it or add water, just sticks it in the microwave and sets it for...
Thankfully, my sister discovered
it after just 5 minutes!!!
BUUUUUUUUUUUUT MANNNNN, its going to be MONTHS before we get that smell completely out of this house!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!
And Odin, weeeeeeeeeellll lets just say that he was HIGHLY offended that all of his hard work in cooking got tossed into the trash...the whole time he's just pointing to it screaming, RICE! RICE! RICE!!! I'm like, Ummmmm NO, lets try, ASHES! ASHES!!! ASHES!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Soooooooooo my lil nephew Odin, that came to live with us last January, when he came to my sister he hardly said any words at all, due to the horrible environment he spent the first years of his life in, he was hardly exposed to anything and combined with the fact that he is special needs and diagnosed with autism!!! but in this past year his vocabulary has increased sooooo much he now says so many words, he is very much a VERY LOUD little chatterbox, but I think our favorite was when he finally decided to start calling my sister MOM!!!
Weeeeeeeellll anyway, we were trying to get him say Stultz for when he'd see Jonathon annnnnd he FINALLY did it the other day! And its sooooo cute the way he says it, like, STOOOOOOTZ!!! LOL So now when he sees him its like, Stoootz! Stoootz! Stoootz!!!
So last night we were all driving around looking at Christmas lights, well Odin has this game he likes to play where he says your name and calls for you until you say, WHAT?! As soon as you say, WHAT?! He goes right to the next person and starts saying their name! So last night he's doing it and then he decides to start saying, Bye Stoootz! Bye Stootz!!!
So Jonathon is like, BYE??? I'm not leaving!!! And Odin is just like, Bye Stootz!!! So Jonathon's like, You want me to leave?! And without missing a beat and with the sweetest tone Odin says,
We were sooooo NOT expecting him to say that!!! We seriously, DIED laughing, it was, THE FUNNIEST thing everrrrrrrr!!! I don't know that I've ever even heard him say please before that and it was in the RIGHT context too!!! ANd WHO says it while asking someone to LEAVE?!?!? AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! He's such a little crack up!!!

Annnnnnnd MAY we never forget that JESUS
Is the reason for the season!!!
My brother told me about a really nice song by the Ball brothers that I want to share with you all, I think it truly sums up what the Christmas season is truly ALL ABOUT!!!
It's not just about the manger Where the baby lay It's not all about the angels
who sing for him that day It's not just about the shepherds Or the bright and shining star It's not all about the wisemen Who travelled from afar
It's about the cross It's about my sin It's about how Jesus came to be born once So that we could be born again It's about the stone That was rolled away So that you and I could have real life someday It's about the cross It's about the cross
It's not all about the good things In this life I've done Its not all about the treasures Or the trophies that I've won Its not about the righteousness That I've find within Its about His precious bloodThat save me from my sin
The beginning of the story is wonderful and great But it's the ending that can save you and that's why we celebrate It's about the cross It's about my sin, It's about how Jesus came to be born once So that we could be born again It's about God's love
Nailed to a tree, It's about every drop of blood that flowed from Him when it should have been me It's about the stone That was rolled away So that you and I could have real life someday So that you and I could have real life someday It's about the cross.
It's about the cross!!!
I'd neverrrr heard this song but I LOVE it!!! I think it truly sums it all up and would be a great song for church Christmas programs!!!

Annnnnnnnnnd its back you guys, Financial Wisedumb with Mary!!! You can read the Last Financial WiseDUMB HERE!!! Buuuuuuuuut today I want to talk about how you can FINANCIALLY save this year on your Christmas budget by improvising on your home Nativity Scene!!! Maybe your a newly wed, maybe your kids broke your nativity scene wrestling in the house, OR maybe your dog ate yours buuuuuuuut for whateverrrrr reason, if you happen to NOT have a Nativity Scene this year, I want to encourage you all to NOT go out and SPEND MONEY buying a brand new one, MY FRIENDS, you have alternatives to spending money, YOU HAVE OPTIONS!!! I would like to present to you all,
Yes, a Nativity scene made from a shoebox, rags and soda pop cans...sooooooo its NOT beautiful, when you see it, YOU GET THE POINT!!! LOL I realize that they often sell little nativity scenes at the dollar store, buuut WHY spend a dollar at all????
This is a chance for you to NOT only be creative, BUUUUUT to get out and exercise as you rummage through your local trash cans, dumpsters and allys!!! PLUS, aside from creativity and exercise, you are also, RECYCLING!!! Helping take care of God's beautiful earth!!! Its pretty much, THE CHANCE OF A LIFE TIME!!! ONCE AGAIN, you are very welcome, for this FINACIAL WISEDUMB WITH MARY!!!
Have a blessed, happy and MARY little Christmas!!!♥Mary Frances :)
