Blogging Hiatus

I have been so stinkin' crazy busy this wonderful Christmas season, that I have not blogged in quite a while. It's just on the bottom of my never-ending to-do list, so I haven't gotten to it. But I am back, to rant and rave, and share my daily folly's. I am someone who has a blog, but I don't consider myself a blogger. Does that make sense? What I mean is: some people spend lots of time, update their blog often, check others blogs often, and somehow seem to always have something new and funny to share. I am not that together. But, blogging is important to me because it is a great way to share our funny (and sometimes not so funny) moments, and also have a way to look back on our lives. I haven't been great at journaling these last few years, so it's been a good thing for me to have this to look back on. And I am so glad I posted some fun pictures on here, because after Brody dropped my hard drive, I lost all my pictures, and was devastated. I learned my lesson, and now I am going to post more. SO BEWARE!!! I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas, and an exciting New Year, here are a few of the highlights from the last few weeks...

"Who is this man with the white beard?! Get me outta here!", Brody says.

"I want a Barbie car." Ava says before Santa even asks. It's actually quite funny, because last year, Ava was screaming and Brody was smiling. Ava finally figured out that you gotta be nice to the big guy to get what you want!

My mom and I had 2 cinnamon roll marathon days. Yeah, we're crazy, and I gained 5 lbs! Look at the bliss on Bro's face as he licks the frosting from his fingers!

Brody visiting with our neighbor to the south. He was so excited to discover a "hussy" back there.

Ava turned 4 a few weeks ago. I can't believe my girl is 4!! We had a
"little chef" party. I made aprons and got chef hats for all the kids. They made their own pizza and had a blast. I was so done with the Princess party thing, so I tried something different, and they loved it. Happy Birthday Sweet Girl.

We gave Lauryn and Brody some of the leftover sunglasses from Ava's goody bags and when I went to take a picture, Brody scooted over and put his arm around Lauryn. It was adorable! He is always looking for ways to love on her. He's such an affectionate kid, I love it!

Something cute I don't want to forget...

The other day Ava climbed into bed with me and woke me up with a kiss, and said, "You are so sweet and such a good mommy" I was glad that she forgot the day before when I felt like all I did was yell at her. I hope she has lots of "holes" in her memory for all the mistakes I make.
