Packing is a Pain!!

This is the last weekend we are in the apartment. Packing is a pain in my behind. Lucky we aren't going far. I've started bringing a few things over. I'm ready to be in the house., I'm sad to leave the lake and all the neighbors that have been like family over the years. But I know God has a plan for us and I'm excited to see where it takes us. This will be my last post for a bit. We are not hooking up Internet at the new house right away. When we get it back I'll be updating the blog. I have so many plans for it, but my life took a turn that doesn't seem to allow blog time. After we are in and settled I'll bake again, crafts, journaling. It will be very cool. I'll try to update when I can. :)

Happy Birthday to the Love of my Life!!

My hubby turned 32 yesterday. He took a snow day from work to go ski with a friend. Then dinner at Ding How with his parents. It was a good evening. The kids were great at the restaurant, and then they went to stay the night with Darlene and Dean. Reggie and I got ice cream and headed home to watch movies and just be alone. He sound it was a great birthday. =)

We finally got snow. Instead of grumbling about it, which is what I like to do. We went out and played in it. Summer was home sick today, but had a burst of energy so out we went. It was cold and we came in wet, but I'm glad we went out.

I'm feeling..........

I'm feeling sad, stressed, excited, and oh I don't know what else. My one little word for this year is time. Time with God. Time with my husband. Playtime with my children. Some time to myself. Don't waste time. See the theme? So far not alot of any of that is happening. I know once we are in the house things will get back on track. But for now I'm feeling all out of sorts. And I have mixed feelings being on the computer. If it was faster maybe it wouldn't feel like a waste. I do so like blogging and who would of thought it but I do enjoy Facebook. :) Well sorry that is my little rant for now. I think I just needed to get it out.

Who's got the time!?

12 days of the new year are already gone!! Really where does the time go!? Things have been busy around here. A few days before Christmas we found out we got the house we want. A few days before new years we signed all the paper work that says it's our. We are very Excited!! But also lots of work ahead of us. The house as been sitting there with no one to love it. So now Reggie is there every night working on it. So now around the apartment, cleaning means packing and getting rid of a bunch of stuff. Which means my blog and computer time is very small. Not to mention that my computer is slower than a snail. We might be off line for awhile too. Which is sad but I think needs to happen. We don't want to bring the dinosaur computer into the house. I'm hopeful for a laptop soon. But first things first. The house is the priority right now. :)

Christmas in Review

I know Christmas was a week ago, I just got my photos to upload to my computer. I will do a quick run through of Christmas Eve and Christmas with of course lots of pictures.
Christmas Eve is always with my mom. After the 2 o'clock service at church, which was great, we headed to Post Falls. We had dinner of ham, my favorite, played the Just Dance Wii, (love!), and gifts. When we were young my parents got us PJs we opened on Christmas Eve and wore them to bed. Since we are older and have kids she gets the grand kids PJs. (I'll have to do a post on the PJ scrapbooks we have made my mom.) It's always a great evening. Then we are home in time to put some cookies out for Santa and get to bed. :)

There is one kid missing. My brother couldn't make in up from Portland. He was missed.

I love Christmas morning. We make the kids wait till we pour coffee and give everyone their juice. They open stockings and the gift from Santa first. I love how the boys don't really get it yet and just ate their apples while Summer opened gifts. We have a rule that I made when I had Summer, we don't leave our house till noon. We spend this time just us 5 together. After all gifts were opened we took a look at our Jesus box and thanked God for everything we does for us. Like I said I love Christmas morning. :)

Gifts? I just need my apple.

Here dog have some candy canes.

Summer got Reggie a pancake shaper.

Summer and her locket.

LOVE my gift!!
On to dad's. Everyone heads there next. We have a very yummy brunch. And of course gifts. My dad's is where my bothers and I also exchange gifts. So lots of gifts being passed around. The kids love it. Again the boys didn't really care to much about the gifts they just wanted to run away and play with Boo the dog. But Summer and Neaveh love it. They helped pass out the gifts. :)

After a little break at home we went to Reggie's parents. We are lucky that everyone lives so close. For dinner Darlene decided to do an nontraditional dinner and have tacos. I can eat tacos anytime so I was all for it. And the kids liked it. Darlene and Dean gave the kids great sweaters for winter, which the boys will actually wear. Todd and Sharon got them some very cute clothes. Ending Christmas at their house is the best way to end it. Very chill. :)

It was a great, amazing, wonderful Christmas!!
