I am amazed it is already 2011… but I truly look forward to this year. In March my twins will be 3 years old. April will mark 10years that Justin and I have been together, while May will be our 9th anniversary of being married. We have a new house, a new budget, and soon a new baby. Things look good, even though it started off pretty rocky.
This month has been tough. All of us have been sick and then sick again Jeremiah had a high fever that would not go away. It would go away for two days and then all of a sudden be back, higher than ever and stay for 4 days. I also had some issues of my own. I ended up getting an infection that I could not beat even with two rounds of antibiotics, so I ended up having a 4 day stay in the hospital. That was not fun! BUT… the last day of January I celebrated my 30th birthday, and the last few hours in January were the best hours of the entire month! I felt so amazingly blessed and happy. Words just can not express.
OH I forgot… in December we had SNOW at our house. It snowed on and off all day. whoo hoo. granted it melted just about the same time it hit the ground, but it was snow in Phoenix and that is just plain awesome!
December was a very crazy month. I don’t have a lot of pictures to share with you. We moved into the new house two days before Christmas and that is about all I can remember.
Christmas morning on the way to my parents my darling son asked for some chapstick. I handed it to him and let him apply himself, as he has done many many times before. When we arrived at our destination, and I opend his door to get him out, I saw not his lips fully lubed up, but his forehead and eyebrows. I lectured him, and took him insde. My dad, looked at us and said, “what’s the matter buddy… wait what’s tha…?” I interrupted him to explain how naughty his grandson was and than very sternly, as to not give away how seriously funny this was, asked my dad to not laugh but to get the camera and capture this moment. My dad did good keep his composure while I scrubbed the boy’s face for twenty minutes trying to get the grease off his face. Then we all had a good laugh!
My parents and grandmother gave this play kitchen to the kids. My dad spent many hours working on it. Working lights in the fridge, oven, stove top. Diswasher has a pull out drawer too! My mom made the cute curtians and dishtowls, along with pot holders, with material from my old room. The kids STILL love their kitchen.
Don’t have any pictures of the new house yet. Sorry, been too busy unpacking. Will do a special post on that, once I get a chance to take some pictures.
