Every year since 1990 the Jammie Elves leave jammies on Christmas Eve--etc.....etc..well this was our highly successful photo shoot of everyone in their new attire. It went from this............
(The boy on the right is Tae's significant whatever---not one of mine.)
I wish I could blame it on something else except my genes that they inherited----I guess thats just how we roll here in the middle of nowhere Montana........
Stay tuned for New Years Eve!!!!!!!

First, I went to onecuteblog (actually I went to quite a few places, I just liked this one best) and on the right side bar--a little ways down there is a section labeled--Labels & Categories--(very handy) and then I clicked on LDS and it takes you to that section which has 2 backgrounds (handy dandy) That's where it is but to install it you need to click on the blue button in the upper right corner of her blog that says installation and it will take you to a page that says this:
How to add these templates to your blog:
The first thing you MUST do if you haven't already, is change your template to "Minima". From your dashboard, click on "layout", or from your blog, click on "customize". Then click on "pick new template". The minima template is the first template offered. Any one of those will work.
Next, go into your "Page elements". Again, this can be found by clicking on "layout" from the dashboard or "customize" from your blog. It will say "add and arrange page elements" at the top.
Click on "add a gadget" anywhere on the page.
This will bring up a screen of various gadgets you can add to your blog. About 2/3 of the way down you will find one that says "html/java script". Click on the picture next to it, or the plus sign. This will bring up another screen.
Enter this code:
(I cut this out so it wouldn't cause problems)--you really do need to go click on this page!)
Where it says DIRECTLINK, in the above code, leave the parenthesis and quotations in place, and copy/paste the direct link/URL included with each template to that place. The direct link is located UNDER each template picture and will say "direct link". Click on that link and it will pull up another full size version of the template you are selecting. This is the photobucket site I have set up to host the templates. You need to copy and paste that link/URL which will begin with http://i250.photobucket.com/albums etc. into the spot that says "direct link" in the above code.
IF YOUR TEMPLATE CHOICE HAS A TEXT BOX UNDER IT, JUST COPY AND PASTE THE TEXT AS AN HTML GADGET!!!
Then save this and view your blog. I make my templates at the highest quality... 300 dpi rather than the standard 72 dpi, which does mean that they may take a bit longer to load onto your screen so be patient. You will want to also make sure to go in and change your fonts and colors to match your blog, which can also be found from the "elements" page. If you cannot see your blog posts or certain widgets (items on your sidebar), be sure to check your colors first! By adding these templates, you should not lose any of your widgets (pictures and links on your sidebar), though this is not a 100% guarantee... only 99%.
Good luck. If you need any other assistance in figuring this out, let me know at onecuteblog at gmail dot com.
To add the blinkies to your sidebar... go into your "add and arrange page elements" and click on "add a gadget". Find the gadget that says "html/java script" and copy/paste the html img code from the text box under the blinkie. Save it. You can rearrange the gadgets on the sidebar in the elements page so your blinkies and other information will be in whatever order you select.
Soooo--I followed the instructions and wha--la (I just realized that is probably not a real word ...hmmm...) there was my beautiful background. And it was free!! I just had to put her button on my sidebar. I really love it--good luck and go check her out!

I may have been exaggerating just a titch the other day when I was crying conspiracy and mass exodus.
I may be just a tad insecure and anxious.
There may have been only 2 people on my bloglist that left.
They may not have locked all the buckles on my straight jacket and under medicated me that day.
But your responses have been most gratifying and the nice people here at the home may be a hint of happy that I have stopped bouncing off these lovely rubber walls.

I think I can almost promise that this will be close to being the last You Tube I put on my blog for awhile. It's just that when I went to look for this vulture clip I remembered another Disney moment that plays over and over and over again in my head. Just when you think you are all alone in your thought processes---You Tube jumps in and shows you that THOUSANDS of people are as mental as you are! Its just amazing!
Soooo....ever since my oldest girls were my youngest girls and watched Cinderella like a million times---this clip plays over and over again every time I have to do more than a couple things at a time--(so, like really, ALL the time) I do my best imitation of this cat and my children and friends go--whoa! what the hec was that??!! And I try to explain that it is from this scene in Cinderella with the cat and the cups--and their eyes just glaze right over. For all of you have seen and those who have yet to see my imitation of Lucifer and Gus in the Cups------(well technically I just do Lucifer...but I digress)--I give you this--
I dare you to ever be able to watch it again without thinking of me...go on.. I dare ya!!
