I Apologize To The Trees

After Samuel's trip to the doctor this morning she thought it would be a good idea if we stayed in for a few days. He has a very mild case of pneumonia. I guess what she doesn't realize is I am a working Mommy and have been "staying in" all week as I take my "vacation". And I could go crazy "staying in" a couple more days.

So, I have been passing time by blogging and picking up after him (although I have that up about an hour ago) and Samuel has been passing time by by making copies for me and claiming everything in this house as "mine mine mine". So, I am sorry trees, I will reuse what paper I can...but he doesn't have nearly enough toys to play with, he needs to play with the printer too.

Can't wait for Daddy to get off work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Few Random Christmas Pictures

A Special Thanks To The Toy Companies....

For making it nearly impossible to get the toys out of their packaging! Seriously???

We wish you and yours a very merry holiday!

We start our Christmas tomorrow after work as we drive to Nebraska for the Williams' family Christmas. On the way home we get to visit my friend Rhonda and her family...meeting Baby Benjamin born last Saturday. This is a very special Christmas for her family for many reasons! Christmas Eve back in Tulsa and Christmas Day my parents will be here and we will head up to my sisters.

I am tired just writing all that! But the good thing after tomorrow I am off work until the 2nd of January. This will be my first vacation this year, since most of my time off was for some sickness of Samuel's :o).

I am sure I will have a ton of pictures to post next week.

I plan on getting the rest of the Christmas cards out tomorrow.

Christmas Card Update

I did half of my Christmas cards Sunday. I only did half because I didn't order enough and had to order more and pay more than the cards in rush shipping, but not the point. I addressed and stamped 1/2 of the Christmas Cards on Sunday and they are sitting right where I left them...on the desk. I am about to say screw the Christmas cards and send an email :o). But not really.....

I blame pregnancy brain. That is what I blamed when it took me 45 minutes to get settled to wrapping Christmas presents too. It started not finding the scissors, which Dave of course blamed me for because "I didn't put them back where they belong". So I finally find the scissors and the tape disappeared. When I found the tape the pen disappeared. When I found the pen and tape the scissors were gone again...and repeat.

These are the words Samuel used to describe the Christmas lights we looked at last night. He is very dramatic like his Mommy.

First Snow Of The Year

Barely a dusting, but snow nonetheless.

Workin' Hard

Dave and Rick worked hard this morning trying to clean up the aftermath of this week's ice storm. Terri and I stayed warm and watched TV inside. But I think we made excellent supervisors. My poor sister, all of her trees were damaged!

Here We Are

It isn't too often that I get a picture of us together.


I can honestly say that I am freaking out a littlle bit. I haven't sent my Christmas cards out yet and normally I have them out by the first weekend in December. I don't even know if I will get them out this week! I haven't finished Christmas shopping and need to wrap presents. I also walk by Baby #2's room and think we need to clean it out..LIKE NOW. And Dave of course says we need to wait until next year. NEXT YEAR that seems so far away. Hello, belly not getting any smaller.

So, if you know me this post is perfectly normal of Christy the control freak.

Okay, I feel better now. Back to what you were doing.

Bye Bye Morning Nap

Samuel is making his move to the "older toddler" room this week. I am happy to report that this move is going much smoother than the last one. However, the "older toddlers" do not take a morning nap. So Samuel is still adjusting to that and ready to go to bed about an hour earlier than usual. We just figured that out tonight, since the last two nights he was SO tired he wouldn't fall asleep and would just cry and cry. Tonight, we thought let's put him to bed at the first sign of tired and it worked he went to sleep with less tears.

I am going to be a pro next go around.

Daddy & Samuel

Due to the recent ice storm, we were without power for about a day and a half. Which, compared to what others are going through is NOTHING. But, nonetheless we did loose power and had to stay at a hotel for the night since Samuel was sick and needed breathing treatments. The picture is above of Samuel and Daddy hanging out there.

I suggest for anyone who wants to test their nerves to spend a day in a hotel with a 1 year old :o). Thank goodness daycare opened back up on Tuesday. Samuel AND Mommy were very excited.

It was Just A Bad Night

Dear Samuel,
You threw your first fit today when we were out for dinner. Normally, you just hang out and flirt with all the girls. I know what you are thinking, well normally you bring a sippy cup, teddy grahams and go at a time when I actually eat dinner....but still you didn't have to cry crocodile tears because we wouldn't give you a straw. Daddy said on the way home that we can't go out to eat until you are 8 years old now! Please give Daddy lots of kisses in the morning and remind him that we forgot your diaper bag with your drink and snacks. You know how much Mommy likes to go out to eat.

I love you and remember who shared her orange soda with you and let you eat your cookie even though you would only eat ketchup for dinner, please no more fits.
