Christmas Recap-finally!

It has been awhile since I posted last! I have finally uploaded all my Christmas pics! We have been totally busy since Christmas Eve!

So here goes....bear with me here, I'm typing this just like I'm talking which is pretty fast-just ask anyone!

It all started on Christmas Eve...we spent it with Cory's family! It was mass Chaos! It all starts out with god know what I'm talking about, everyone opens a gift 1 at a time so everyone else can ohh and ahh! Then it's a free for all! I barely got to see what my own children received. I had no clue what I got that night!

Then Christmas morning we did our thing at our house! It was so fun seeing the girls get excited over little things, like Belle, and Cinderella socks that I got at the dollar section at Target! It doesn't take a lot of money to make my kids happy! Anywho, it was wonderful! Nothing can take away from that morning! It was magical! My hubby also got my some goodies, he is the best at buying me gifts! He can pick out clothes, and shoes, and anything else for me! He ROCKS!! He got me a jewelry armoire, that I will adore when I actually get it...they have been sold out! I got a picture, and gift card and a rain check for it! He also got me some other great things.. I bought him some dumbells, a WiFi internet radio thing, and some other cool gifts! I think the girls' faves were their ponies. Kayli really wanted a remote control Scoot a Loo,

and Logan wanted Newborn Rainbow Dash,

Naomi loves her Elmo!!

We then drove to my familes! We had family stuff Christmas night, and the day after! Then on Sunday we packed up and drove home, well first we went the girls' best friend Grace's 4th birthday party! We were exhausted needless to say...There could be more pics and posts soon about Christmas...who knows!! But I'm still getting back into the swing of things!

CHRISTmas Eve/Emotional wreck!

Ok, first off Merry CHRISTmas Eve!! I cannot wait for tomorrow! I won't sleep tonight for all the excitement! I never have been able to. I am always the first to call my mom and my dad on Christmas because I am up! So I hope everyone's is great! I am sad that I won't be going to our Candlelight Service tonight :( We are having Christmas with my inlaws because we will be traveling tomorrow to my family's...we switch every other year!

I am an emotional wreck right now!! I realize that I had a baby 6 months ago, and I am still nursing, but geez....I was watching an old episode of 7th Heaven while I was folding laundry last night, and it was about how Sandy played Mary in the nativity scene while she was preggers...throughout all of this she realized what Christmas was all about.......Oh my goodness...I was tearing up through the whole thing!! I am such a dork! Although I do love God, and know that he is an AWESOME father! So maybe that's why?? Or maybe it's just the season?? Or maybe it's just me, yeah pretty sure it's the last!! :) Have a great day!!

Disclaimer: The pics aren't for anything...they're just too cute not to share! :P

Oh The Weekend!

Oh, our weekend was crazy! We drove down to my moms house on Friday night(2.5 hours) Just to look at some possible homes for us for when we move in March. We had set up 3 to look at on Sat. morning.... I didn't sleep well...So Saturday we looked at the houses, and the first one I love! It is so nice. It's only 2 years old, 3 beds, 2 baths, with 2.2 acres. It also has a full basement, that is easily finishable, 2 car nice garage, and is only 3 miles from the Park where Cory will be working out of!! The schools are also good and that's important because with a special needs child, we need to make sure she gets good services! The prices was also awesome! It is only 83,000.00!!!!!! Can you believe that? A nice new home with acreage? 2 years ago that would never have been possible.....well I found out why it was so cheap.....It is bank owned and has MOLD!!! Not alot, but I'm having my dad check it out to see how deep the mold is...If it's just surface then we can easily take care of it! I am blessed with a hubby and a dad who can do many a andy of things... Like finish a basement! It's alot of work, but so much cheaper when done yourself!! So this is my current prayer. I know that if it's God's will for us to be there then it will happen! I'm big on putting all my faith in him! I'm not worried about it at all, which is surprising! But when you have great faith in your father, then you should have no worries!! Yes, I may want it, but it's not my will but his!!

Anywho....Saturday after looking at houses we drove to my sisters house(another 2.5 hours) because Sunday was my nephews Christmas program at church(they are preacher kids) and Saturday night Lo had her Sleep Study at Children's and my sis lives like 30 min. from the hospital. All was well until about 2:30 in the morning when Bug woke up pukin!! I stayed up with her and she threw up every 20 min. all night long. SHe finally fell asleep around 5:30 right after the Diarehha sarted! Naomi also woke up around 4 and couldn't get back to sleep! Needless to say I was a tired one!! I just stayed up and watched a movie! SO Cory got back with Lo around 7:30 a.m. and we just packed up and went home!

Yeaterday was spent laying around, and trying to clean up the house!! I took about an hour nap, and last night I went to bed early and slept!! I feel better today and so does Bug! I have a lot to do before Christmas Eve cause we go to my moms house on Christmas, so I have a lot of cleaning and packing to do...along with some Lysol spraying!! Yuck!

Throwback Thursday!

This pic was taken on the girls' 1st Christmas 2005!! They had such a good time and I remember it well!! They looked so cute in their matching jammies and hats!! I can't wait for Christmas morning! I know Naomi isn't really old enough to enjoy it, but I think she will enjoy watching her sister's!!

Weekend in Review

We had another wonderful weekend together! But they are always too short! Friday was spent with me still being sick, but on the mend. We were supposed to go to my moms for the weekend, but since I had been sick I decided that I didn't want to chance spreading the sick love to any family members! SO we stayed home! I got Naomi's 6 month pics taken, and my girls stayed the night at my sister's house! Cory and I thought we would get a great night of uninterrupted sleep, but HA, Naomi didn't sleep all that well...go figure! So Saturday we did a little Christmas shopping and then, drove down to pick up the kids. Later that evening we went with my sister, my 2 nephews, and my bro-in law to a lodge to visit Santa! It was all lit up so beautifully, and it was really neat. Kayli cried when it was time to see Santa cause "she's scared" This is my sis holding a screaming bug while I snapped a quick pic On Sunday we spent a wonderful day at home in our jammies! We cleaned up, made cookies, and Cory's granny came over for a visit! It was a great weekend! I am feeling much better, I am over the FLU, my eye is almost better....I have a little bit of blurry vision, and it's more annoying than anything We have a busy week this week! Lo has to go have one of her braces fixed, and she gets casted for a new one for her other leg. She also has a sleep study on Saturday night at Children's! Daddy will be staying with her! Have a great week!! Oh, and someone loves PRUNES!!!!

Throwback Thursday!

Buggy and her daddy playing!

And Daddy holding Logie-as always....she has always been a daddy's girl-bad!!! Seriously, she would cry when I held her....what a way to make a mom feel would make me cry!!

These pics were taken when the girls were almost 11 months old, right before their 1st Christmas!! They were so cute, and I miss there littleness everyday! (Especially when we carry their tired, sleepy bodies upstairs to bed...UGH)

Still sick Tuesday!

Ok, I am STILL sick!! I had to call my sister yesterday who lives and hour away to come help me with me kids! I could not have done it with our her! I have to get my twins on the bus to preschool and off the bus and take care of my baby! I pretty much layed in bed all day yesterday! Today I am going to the doctor! Besides my yucky pink eye, that is slowly getting better...I have a very swollen and hurtful throat, and I can't hear out of one of my ears, and a horrible cough! I normally don't get sick, but when I do, I get SICK!! I will get everything known to man!! So anyway....1...2.....3.....awwww(that was my pity party!!!)

Today is kind of a special day for marks the day that Cory and I have "been together" (essecentally our dating anniversary) for 10 years!!! That's crazy! We started dating our freshman year at Ohio State, and we haven't looked back! Cory saved me in so many ways....I was in a downward spiral....a long story for another time...but I love him so dearly!!
(This pic was taken on our anniversary last year....we left the girls with my mom and stayed overnight in Florence,KY, we ate the the Melting Pot, which was really yummy!!)

Also today Naomi is 6 months old!! IT has gone by so fast! She is such an enjoyable baby! The meaning of her name fits her: sweet, pleasant! She has 2 teeth that oth came in last week, just 2 days apart( i am a nursing mom so pray for me :P ) I love her sooo much!

Foul Friday....

Just thought I would title this post Foul Friday!! Because......that's how I feel...Foul!!! I HAVE PINK EYE!!!!!! It is making me miserable! Above all that tonight when we came home from the grocery(which I swear everytime we won't take all the kids cause they can never behave, and I get stressed out and become something from a horror movie...) well we took them...and I'll let you guess the rest.......

but anywho...I came home and came down with a fever, I was freezing cold(when it was 75 in here) and just had the aches....I took some meds and am feeling a little better....

Sorry...just had to feel sorry for my sorry feeling self!!!

Thanksging....weekend review...

I never did post about thansgiving, or pretty much anything from last ....
Our week, last week, started off like this....

Poor bug, she was sick all week....she had a high fever, and it ended up being an ear infection! So Thanksgiving wasn't much fun for her!!

We ate tooo much food on turkey day..including Naomi who had sweet potatoes for the 1st time

My hubby got up early on Black Friday and went shopping while I stayed with the kids...then later we took Bug to Urgent Care to find out about the ear infection!!

Saturday we layed around all day!! It was awesome...and Sunday we went to our friends house for a visit!

Not much else has happened since then...Logan now has a fever, I think it could be a UTI cause she gets them frequently(we cath her every 4 hours) so I took her to the doctor today so they could collect a urine I'm just sitting here waiting for the phone to ring....and looking at my cuties

Wordless Wednesday..well maybe a few words...

This is a tutu that I made for Naomi last night.....I am very proud of myself! It took about 20 minutes to make and it was really cheap! I am going to get her 6 month pics taken in it with a red and white striped shirt that says Ho Ho Ho and some red tights!!! Cute right!!
