Time to Catch Up

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I blogged.  But, I have been a little busy.  So what's new?

We spent a night in the children's hospital with Rex.  I don't recommend it.  All is fine with him now, and thank God we only had to stay that one night.

I'm back at work.  Things are crazy.  Trying to catch up on everything that accumulated while I was gone.

We had an amazing Halloween.  Rex slept the whole night in his carseat, but he made an adorable little skeleton.  Lexi was Cinderella.  She loved the fact that she could wear her costume to school, but was very sad when she couldn't wear it again the next day.  She is in love with all things Princess right now.

We spent Thanksgiving in Cherokee, OK with my Mom's side of the family.  We had a great time.  Lots of babies in our family this year.  There were 4 there on that day, with 1 more missing. 

We went Black Friday shopping on Friday evening when we got home.  Guess what?!?  There were still some great bargains, and not hardly any shoppers.  Not to mention the fact that Target started their sales on Wednesday, so I got a great deal on board games for all the nieces and nephews.  It's nice to have a dent in my Christmas shopping so early.  The past few years I have been a Christmas Eve shopper...and I don't really like that.  Every year I vow to start buying things at the beginning of the year...and I never do.  Maybe 2013 is the year?!

I can't believe tomorrow is December 1st!  Bring on the Christmas season.  We got some lights up on the house.  Jacob and I are somewhat of "Griswolds" so of course we would love to have more.  Being this is our first year in this house we are testing the water on what all we can do.  I'm so excited to get all my Christmas decorations out.  Since we didn't have a house last year I didn't get to decorate.  So, I'm so excited to decorate my very own house this year.  And I'm sure Lexi will enjoy it also.  She is so excited about Christmas-time already also.

Rex has started sleeping a little better...knock on wood....he gets up 1-2 times a night, versus every 2 hours he was doing up until about 2 weeks ago.  Jacob and I are definitely enjoying the extra sleep. 

Keep checking the blog, because I have lots of great ideas!
