The nights after Christmas..and all thru the house....

All of the creatures are stirring..however we got rid of the mouse.

We got the kids a Wii for Christmas..or well Santa got the Wii (why does the fat guy in red get to give the GOOD gifts) I have to say it is the most LOVED gift in the house. Brian (the roommate) never touches any of the other games like the PS2 or anything like that. However even HE will get in on the action and play.
We bought on extra Wii-mote and nunchuck however, we are going to have to invest in two more..we are definately not a sharing family LOL :)
The kids are definately getting exercise LOL :)

My niece also got a Wii at her house so when she came to spend the night last night she brought us her two wii motes and that allowed us all to was much easier then sharing :) So alas... after payday happens again we will have to invest :)

Update on being preggers :)

I am tired, I am grumpy. I am not sure why I am as grumpy as I have been. Really there is a lot of stress and I am really quite frustrated. I think it's mostly because things are not going my way. ie: there is none of the things I always wanted for my first child ie: nursery, her own decorations etc. We are going to have to squeeze everything in to the room with the kids, the baby will have to share everything etc.
But it will work out. God has a plan I know that much. I really need to si back and relax and try to enjoy it..cause once she's here..things are really really going to change....

71 more days..oh and a funny story

I'm sitting in my chair. with my laptop in front of me. Emily (the kitten!) is sitting on my boobs/stomach area.
Sarah started kicking.
Apparently she doesnt like Emily sitting on her. So Sarah kicked real hard and the cat just jumped up. For a second I was just laughing. and then sarah kicked again. Then the darn cat POUNCED on my stomach. Dennis does this thing where he will put his hand under the blankets and antagonize the kitten to no end. And the kitten will attack his hand and inevitably it ends with Dennis going OOOOUUUCHHHH she bit me!! cause she's got sharp teeth and claws.

So you can imagine what I did when she pounced by belly. Darn kitten and kid are already playing...they just dont know :)

Some photos from long ago :)

Ten more weeks

It's hard to sit here and think. OMG..ten more weeks. adn I will have this little, tiny, helpless creature that I am supposed to take care of for the next 18 years. She is kicking like crazy all the time. I went to my 30 week checkup this morning. The dr says everything looks good and I'm ok to go off to California for a week with the family (since I am still pretty early in my third trimester) he did say that I am not allowed to travel outside of the area once the middle of January comes around. So I will have to let my boss know that.

I can't believe Christmas is almost here. Dennis gave me one of my presents from him and the kids on Sunday. It's a beautiful eddie Bauer Newport Bassinet. Which is one I wanted but figured he'd nix the idea since it's $150!! And heck for $200 I could get a crib. But I got what I want :) and i'm going to put it together after Christmas and start getting a little more read :)
I am so excited! :)

Christmas Ornament traditions

When I was growing up my grandparents would buy us a new ornament every year..Imagine doing that for 6 grandkids!! When I was 17 I got married and moved to Missouri, That Christmas my grandmother shipped off all of my ornaments and a new one too! I loved those ornaments. They were the most special things in the world to me. There were some that were just cheap dollar store type with my name written in Sharpie on the bottom, and there is one that is so elaborate that it makes me giggle with glee when I see it. When I turned 24 my ex husband and I divorced…He destroyed all but one of them (the elaborate one happened to have a piece broke off so I had put it in a box and stashed it away in the thought that I was going to fix it then pack it back with the Christmas stuff) Here it is five years later. I cried two years ago when I purchased a tree and realized I had absolutely no ornaments to put on it. My best friends from Texas were thoughtful enough to actually purchase a bunch of them and send them to me for Christmas of 05…My first Christmas alone. This year when my new step children and I were putting up the tree (I’ve been married for over two years, we just didn’t put up a tree the last two years) I cried for an hour because I love these new ornaments just as much….That’s not to say I don’t want to punch my ex in the mouth for what he did to the other ones. But these new ones are so special. So I think everyone should have this tradition and their children will hopefully love and cherish these ornaments as much as my twin sister, brother and cousins all do.
