Blogging vacation

Okay, so I haven't been so good at blogging while in Austin. I will try to get a nice little note up in a day or two. We had a great Christmas and we are looking forward to the New Year. The girls are non stop playing with the loads of presents they got. It's late and I am tired. Until next!!

Hitting the Road...Jack!!

We are very excited to be leaving for Texas tomorrow. I think we have finally gotten everything together and packed. The girls woke up this morning and asked if we were going today. I explained that we had to get everything ready to go today and that we would leave first thing tomorrow morning. Bart took Jake to the kennel this morning. It sure is quite around the house without him. I guess now there is no one to yell at...hehe. I can't wait to see the family and catch up with friends. It will be nice to have some adult conversation. I feel like I have been house bound since Aislynn was born. I guess it's just so much work to get out that I just haven't dealt with it. Also, we don't have a babysitter around here so that makes it hard too. I will try to keep posting in Austin and keep those of you I am not going to see up to date with all we are doing. Once again, Merry Christmas and be safe.

It's been so long....

Since my last post I have now come down with some kind of cold thing. I hate being sick and Aislynn is sick too. We just want to lay in bed and be sick and miserable together. Too bad the other two girls are just fine and have about as much energy as can of red bull.
I think we have finally finished just about all of our Christmas shopping. Yeah!! It's no fun fighting the crowds. We braved the mall on Saturday and that turned into a long adventure. We got there around lunch time so we decided just to pick up something from the food court. Well, it was potty time so I went to take the girls and get Aislynns's diaper changed and discovered that I was out of diapers. We then had to drive to Target to get diapers and then come back to the mall to finish shopping. It's all my fault, I didn't think we were out in the diaper bag. I was to the point that if I saw another mom with a baby around the age of Aislynn I was going to try to buy a diaper from her. I never found one. Enough about all that.
I can't believe that December is going by so fast. We are going to leave for Texas in less than one week. Wow, it has snuck up on us so fast.

The girls helped make a gingerbread house last wednesday for family night. It was fun.

Santa was a success!!

I was a bit worried this year that Kambry would be deathly afraid of Santa. Instead, she surprised me and was the first one up on his lap telling him what she wanted for Christmas. McKenna made a list over a week ago and then Kambry decided she would make a list too. It was really cute. Aislynn did really well too. She just sat there and didn't make a peep. Merry Christmas!!

Finally Friday

This week seemed to go by so slow. I guess because last week was so short because of Thanksgiving and all. I got back into my weekly routine of laundry, dishes, and otherwise cleaning the house. I am ready for the weekend because it's my time to relax a little. We are making plans for the trip to Texas. Jake (our dog) is going to a kennel and the kitties will be looked after by a friend. I am hoping that the 12 hour trip doesn't turn into a 15 or more one. I think we should be ok if we just keep on trucking. I just know how much Aislynn still hates her carseat so I am not counting my chickens first if you know what I mean. All I have to say now that we have 3 girls is thank heavens for the DVD in the car. It makes these trips so much better. Of course they get spoiled with non stop movies for a day, but at least I don't have to listen to them arguing about something silly the whole time. Actually, that's not all true, they do argue about who gets to pick out the movie. I usually let them take turns but it always has be an ordeal. Did I mention that I can't wait for Christmas. What I am looking forward to, besides seeing all my family and some friends is the good Texas food. I know I should be watching what I eat a little better because my body is still in the recovery period for giving birth but I need to indulge a little right? After all, once a baby the body is never the same...then add two more on to that. Okay enough of all that talk. I can hear Aislynn is ready to eat again. I guess she takes after me. Have a good one everybody.
