long gone, so I am very late…

One thing I have learned since starting this blog, it takes a ton of time to keep up with all of the posts. I actually have, um, 10 draft posts? I start them with a heading, so that I will remember the idea, and then go back later and finish them. Yea, you see how that is working out for me right? Maybe I need to add that to my resolutions for the year: ~compile a list of posts and actually complete them. Anywho, I decided that I shouldn’t just let this one go by the wayside completely. I snapped some pics on Christmas day that I should share. My camera battery was dead(go figure!) so had to use my iPhone for most of these.

So without further adieu… just a quick look.

Here are the kids heading out of Hannah’s room to see what Santa brought… gotta love the look Ashton has, I don’t think he quite knows whats up just yet.

And Ashton and Garrett trying out Ashton’s new basketball goal…
side note: downfall of nighttime cloth diapers – they aer HUGE lol. Poor kid.

Ashton’s new “hhuunnn”(think the sound a motor makes) lol or as we say it, tractor.

Hannah doing what 12 yr olds do best πŸ˜‰ sitting at her new vanity. You can see how that was redone here.

And even the dogs got in on the action…Cloe’s new coat and playing with Lizzie’s new toy. Crazy dogs.

Ashton trying his hand at music…he loves to make noise!

And even though they were being silly, this pic does show that they love each other. Despite what they would tell you after riding in the car together, sitting next to each other for more than 30 minutes. I like this one…

Ok, so there are some late pics, and I will do what I can to get some more current ones up soon!

Hope everyone had a great holiday season. I know I did. I am so blessed to have the family that I do.


To my wonderful husband…

I know you don’t like days like today… you avoid them at all costs. Although, it does seem that you are handling it quite well today. You know the saying that things get better with age, well that saying definetely applies to you. Yes, it’s your birthday, yes, your a year older. But you are also a year wiser, and it’s been another year that I have been able to spend with you. Oh, and you have had my presence in your life for another year as well..thats like a double shot cinnoman dulce latte from Starbucks every day of the year! LOL ok, maybe I am over-rating myself a bit, but I would say having you around is like a caramel brule latte every day of the year, and I can only get those around the holidays-thanks babe πŸ™‚

So go enjoy your eclair πŸ˜‰
