3rd Shift

The only nice thing about Nathan working 3rd shift is that I get the whole bed to myself for a week. Miracle on the other hand likes that Nathan is home sleeping during the day.

Sending Valentines

I found a small package of blank Valentines at Michael's a few weeks ago and thought they would be good for a rainy day. Turns out they were good for a 'drive mommy crazy' day.

My Friend Gina

Last month my friend Gina had a little boy. She had asked me to take family pictures back in November because she wanted pictures with her belly before the baby was born. Between their schedule and ours we didn't get around to pictures until two nights before she was induced.

The Farm

It's always nice to go to the farm and spend some time with family that we don't get to see very often. We tried to leave the day after Christmas but the snow and ice threw a wrench (read telephone pole) in those plans so we left on the Monday after Christmas. It was a very long drive but seeing family is worth it. I was too busy visiting with family to take any more pictures than this. Someone should fire me.

The kids wanted to leave cookies out for Santa and since I had been busy baking for the neighbors he had a nice selection this year. We did our advent wreath, the first year we've actually done the whole thing at home. The candles burned down while I wrapped more presents than I ever have before. The tree looks like it's leaning but it wasn't.
Christmas morning the kids woke up early, big surprise. We had a nice quiet morning opening presents together with a break in the middle for french toast casserole. Daddy got an Irish whistle and is picking it up pretty quick when he has time to practice.
Mommy got a Flip. :)
Yes, AJ got a BB gun and Nathan got a couple of air soft rifles. Although, Nathan says they really aren't soft. hehe. Merry Christmas!
