Christmas 2007 has come and gone… Seems like we were just counting down to the day, weren’t we?.. Can you tell I’m like a child around the holidays?.. I get so excited to have all of my family together, good food, watching the kids go ecstatic over what Santa brought… Listening to holiday music.. Except for the insane amount of people crowding stores when you need to make a quick stop, I love everything about the season! =) We had a nice holiday this year.. Lots of unwrapping, untwist-tying (gotta love how much they tie up toys these days), lots of sweet treats… We made it all the way through the holiday extravaganza and awoke at 5:30am to “Mommy, I threw up in my bed…”.. Oye! Poor girl.. I thought maybe she just ate a bit too many sweets, but it seems she actually had a touch of this flu type bug going around.. Erik was off work today, so was able to stay home w/ her. She’s tucked snugly in bed now, but hopefully she’s seen the worst… Fingers crossed my baby is feeling better by morning!..
Visited the library last week.. does anyone else every feel excitement about all the new books that are out? However w/ time constraints, I typically have to renew a book before I ever get through it.. I still feel giddy over the *possibility* of new books to read.. Yeah, yeah, I’m a little different.. lol
As of last week, Kaylor is officially a member of the YWCA now.. She went there this summer for their camp program and got to swim every day, play outside, go on field trips, etc. It’s awesome that we have this sort of thing for working parents! They also host child care for school break days, so during the holidays, she’ll have 2 “Y” days where she can swim and then 1 day that she will be going to the Children’s Discovery Museum.. Hopefully those will be enjoyable for her!
Burt’s Bees chapstick… if you have never tried this chapstick, you seriously must! You know when you get home from the store, and that little something that you have bought, just tickles you pink when you take it out of the sack at home? That’s me w/ my burt’s bees chapstick… I know, I’m easy to please, but hey, it’s really good stuff! I recommend the original verison, “soothing, cooling, refreshing”… ahh…. Now go get some! haha..
We stopped by Kelly’s Bakery a couple of weeks ago for the annual gingerbread house decorating!.. We had so much fun that Erik even decided that he had to purchase a house of his own to decorate! haha… He & Kaylor both did such a great job though!.. And eating candy while decorating, that always makes for a good time… Here are a few pics of the fun that was had. And even a rare couple of photos w/ me!
More holiday pictures to come…
