some things about me

Your Five Factor Personality Profile


You have medium extroversion.
You're not the life of the party, but you do show up for the party.
Sometimes you are full of energy and open to new social experiences.
But you also need to hibernate and enjoy your "down time."


You have medium conscientiousness.
You're generally good at balancing work and play.
When you need to buckle down, you can usually get tasks done.
But you've been known to goof off when you know you can get away with it.


You have medium agreeableness.
You're generally a friendly and trusting person.
But you also have a healthy dose of cynicism.
You get along well with others, as long as they play fair.


You have medium neuroticism.
You're generally cool and collected, but sometimes you do panic.
Little worries or problems can consume you, draining your energy.
Your life is pretty smooth, but there's a few emotional bumps you'd like to get rid of.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is medium.
You are generally broad minded when it come to new things.
But if something crosses a moral line, there's no way you'll approve of it.
You are suspicious of anything too wacky, though you do still consider creativity a virtue.

Your Element Is Air

You dislike conflict, and you've been able to rise above the angst of the world.
And when things don't go your way, you know they'll blow over quickly.

Easygoing, you tend to find joy from the simple things in life.
You roll with the punches, and as a result, your life is light and cheerful.

You find it easy to adapt to most situations, and you're an open person.
With you, what you see is what you get... and people love that!

Santa Tracker

Check out this cute site i found.

There is a Santa tracker and a naughty-or nice meter. Cute and fun for the kiddos!

check out what it said about josh.

josh ocamb
Overall, niceness outweighs naughtiness. Was good a lot last month!
Politeness often good, but has room for improvement.
Could help around house more instead of watching so much TV.
Expected to move even higher up "nice" list.

mas updatos

so i forgot to tell you all how ellie is smiling now and how cute it is. plus just today she started grabbing for toys. i'll try to catch a picture of her smiling soon!


Not a whole lot of new and exciting news on the home front.I have a few funny things from kimber. Last week we were shopping at wal-mart and she saw two sets of leaf shaped salt and pepper shakers one green and one white. she picked both of them up and asked me "which one do you think for my wedding? i have to marry a husband someday you know" i told her to put them back because we had some time to think about it. a few days later i bought some hair dye which she saw and asked "who's changing their hair to this" i told her i was, then she says "it's not gonna change your eyebrows you know" well ok. the other thing she says thats funny is instead of "that cracks me up" she says "that knocks me out."

we got our tree last weekend and decorated it, if i took a picture of it every day for you it would look different each time because the girls like to take the ornaments off of it and redecorate it.

also last night we went to robins and made a gingerbread house. i didnt have my camera there but here's a picture of the finished product.

Merry christmas!
