We are finally home!!

Two weeks is a long time to be away from home. Let me tell you. Last night Elaina asked me when we were going to travel again and I said it would be about 5 weeks and she burst into tears. She said, "I just want to stay home!!!" So now we have a little bit of laundry, a little bit of dishes and a whole lot of mail to sort through.

Now that we are home I am looking forward to posting regularly. I also finally got the prize for the contest in the mail and soon I will be posting a qualifying question.

We have been home for less than 24 hours and Elaina has already cut Eily's hair. It doesn't take them long to get back into destruction mode.

Baby is doing well. Kicking all the time and pushing tiny little feet and hands up into my rib cage.

Enjoy what you are doing for it is the last time you will do it this decade.

I think I may make some resolutions this year. I haven't done that in about 5 years. I think it's time.

This week on Insanity...

Mommy is on the war path today. I am so tired of their whining and complaining. GET ALONG WITH EACH OTHER.

This is strange. Our answering machine just came on. No ringing and no message was left. Very odd.

Ok, back to de-stressing. This week is a crazy week. Everyday seems to have a jam packed schedule and we are leaving soon to go to Tennessee for my cousin's graduation party and then Christmas with Jason's family. My sweet, sweet grandmother was listening to me and my sister talk Sunday night after church about this upcoming week and she told me to send all my laundry and ironing to her house with Dad so she can have it ready for us before we have to leave. That's the kind of woman she is. Selfless and aware of what needs to be done. She's the coolest grandma ever. So today I'm trying to get all the laundry done so that at least she won't have to mess with that part of it all.

We had Christmas here this morning. Last night, Lala came to watch the girls and Jason and I went to Fort Smith to buy some presents and stocking stuffers. It was fun. We came home after the girls were asleep and we wrapped presents, stuffed stockings and cleaned the Living Room so that it would sparkle for the festivities.

The girls had made these snowflakes with Lala while we were shopping.

It looked a lot like a little Christmas wonderland.

It's a blurry picture but the stockings were sweet looking.

Hopefully, by next year I will have Elaina's stocking made. My goal is a stocking a year.

Waiting for the gate to be removed so that they can see the presents.

 These are the expressions we were hoping for.

 Even Charlie got something!
 Her most wanted item this year.

It was a lot of fun.  Now back to the crazy schedule and the crazy mommy. I'll see all you family from Tennessee very soon!!!

A Few Things

It's not that I forgot. I tried several times to post but it wouldn't download the pictures I wanted to add to the post. I think it's because I had used photoshop to make them look crisp and nice and apparently that's too much for blogger to handle. I will try again later and if it doesn't work this time I think I will just use the original photos.

Elaina and Claire are going to be in their first Fun Run this morning. It is half a mile and they are really excited about it. I have been wanting to get Elaina in one for a while but I never could find one for her to do. Their cousin, Aaron, will be doing it with them so I think the whole event will be a fun experience.

Claire is too adorable. And a stinker.

We had an ultrasound this week and I am proud to say we didn't cave and find out what the baby is. The girls are 100% for sure it's a boy because "it looks like a boy in there" but I had to tell them that they all looked like little old men when they were born. Especially miss Claire. They are still convinced it will be a boy and I have to admit I think of it as a boy also but I expect it to be a girl when it is born. It's just a habit. My babies are born. My babies are girls.

Everyone have a happy day today. That's an order!
