Happy New Year!

2008 has been a pretty good year for us.  Of course the highlight was the arrival of sweet little Brother Bear, but all in all, 2008 has treated us well.  I'm looking forward to the next adventures 2009 will bring.  Excited for New Year's resolutions to be made and broken...hehe.  I actually did accomplish one resolution this last year - I was a better mom this year.  Of course for this next year I want to build on that and become even better.  :)  Life is about perfecting, not being perfect right?

I truly hope this next year is great for you all! 


Merry Christmas!

Well we definitely don't have to dream of a White Christmas!  We came to my sister's house for a while to celebrate the holidays with my parents.  It's been great.  Christmas was terrific - I love the excitement of a 2 and 4 yr old.  Princess got a dolly - one of those that isn't a baby, but a big girl that hasn't left her side for one minute.  My parents brought out an old doll crib that I used to have as a little girl and that just made her day!  :)  Cowboy can't really decide what he's more excited about - his Diego gift set (included a Diego doll, view finder thing with the pictures, and a Diego doodle pro), or his animals - we got him some of those plastic realistic looking animals, or his old baby toy farm that we decided to re-gift to Brother Bear.  :D  Zane and I were even able to surprise each other: I got a new dress, and Zane got a massage appointment. 

All in all it was a great Christmas!  And p.s. Caleb and I are still sick and now with something else.*Sigh*  I feel like it will never end.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season.


Almost over!

My hubby is almost done with his semester!!! Yay!! I feel as though I have had no time to update the blog the last month, so I'm excited to get all caught up the next couple of weeks without feeling guilty for ignoring my children. :)

Just a quick update: brother bear is getting his bottom teeth and still being a gem even though he has a cold on top of it. Cowboy has an ear infection and a constant sinus infection - I'm really hoping it clears up soon - I finally convinced the doc to put him on some allergy medication to help...so we'll see if that helps at all. Princess is also sick and getting an ear infection (we think) so it's back to the doctor tomorrow for me! But all the kids are doing great and we are all excited about the holidays - especially having daddy around!
