Sophie and Nicholas playing

Nicholas just loves Sophie..and she can't get enough of him :-) I'm sure they'll grow up together best buds. It is so entertaining to watch them "play" together on the climbing structure, she tries her hardest to "climb" the slide..too funny!

Happy Thanksgiving

Prayers to all that you enjoy a happy Thanksgiving with friends and family. Remember those less fortunate with a special prayer as you count your blessings.

Hugs to all

Long day....

...and I'm exhausted. Been transitioning Nicholas into his own big boy bed, which he's doing really well..but....yesterday he had a 3 hour nap!! No not my doings, I left at 530 and Patrick let him sleep til 7 :-( So at 9 when I took him to bed he just wasn't tired. It was midnight before he was asleep and even then he wokeup shortly after that to use the potty. At 1:30 I gave up and took him to my bed, I had to have some sleep!
Our new furniture arrived yesterday..oohhh it's beautiful. All La-z-boy and I love it! Now to teach Nicholas the new "rules" for eating in there...hmmm, another challenging time ahead.
Morgan was kind enough to give Nicholas a bath tonight, of course he's not behaving so I gotta run.

Monday morning

WOOHOO...Nicholas slept in his bed til 5:00 this morning. We are thrilled at how simple this transition from our bed to his new bed has been. He is very proud of himself too :-) This morning he got a new hot wheel and a piece of gum, he was in 7th heaven.
The weekend went by too quickly, they always do. Did most of the downstairs housework last night so I can work on Christmas gifts today. Might take Nicholas to the park too, it's been beautiful out, low 70's during the day and cooler at night, this is when I enjoy living in California.
Chat more later......
Blessings to all.....

Sophie Update

Almost forgot....Sophie is doing really well, she's feeling 100% now. I was worried cuz she was so darn skinny for a puppy, vet said today that was due to the Giardia, she wasn't eating her full meals. Well my little princess piggy has gained 7 pounds in 2 short weeks!! She is such a doll, we love her so much. Patrick still misses Tucker I can tell, he does love Sophie though.

Saturday night

Wow...I guess at 40 something you just don't get into a saturday night anymore :-( It's only 8:50 and I'm in my pj's and ready for bed. I remember when I'd stay up all night or at least til 2 or 3, not anymore. I do love my bed :-)

Nicholas is now a certified big boy. He is sleeping in his new full size big boy bed all by himself with undies! no more pullups or diapers for this kid. He is very proud of himself as is mommy and daddy :-) Today we all went (even Ashley and Morgan, which they are hardly ever with us anymore, part of having teens is getting used to the fact that they have a life of their own, has been hard on this mom!) to the movies and saw "Madagascar 2", it was very cute. Nicholas did awesome, first time he's been in about 6 months and I must say he's ready for kid friendly movies once in a while now, yeah!

I am going Christmas shopping for the girls teens are hard to shop for :-( Nicholas is done, he was so simple...some cars, trucks, blocks etc, he'll be a happy camper..oh yeah I got him the cutest "car's" scooter, it's a 3 wheel instead of 2 wheel. Cute cute.

Bye for now....

Sophies 11 weeks today :-)

My cute little baby girl. See her little "milk moustache"'s actually yogurt, she gets a tablespoon with each meal, she loves it. Her tummy is better now, she had giardia...a parasite that is passed from mama's milk to baby. She was on meds for 3 days and vaccinated against it. She's just so darn cute!!

Friday already

This was a quick week. Feeling in a blue mood lately :-( Usually it doesn't hit me til january/february, the past two years it's hit early. Yikes. Just need to remind myself all I have been blessed with and be thankful instead of the "feel sorry for myself" mood I've been in :-( Not a good feeling.
Nicholas has been such a handful lately and with the puppy added in the mix I have no "me" time anymore. The girls aren't fond of babysitting when he's in this kind of mood so it's me til Patrick gets home, then he's usually tired and so it's "me" some more... The kisses and "I love you mommy's" keep me going though.
I have been working on my list of 101 things to do beginning January 1st. Getting there, it's amazing how many little things ya just let go and if you don't stay on top of it it's overwhelming. So one thing at a time is my new motto.
Today I'm working on two rag quilts...woohoo...simple and fun, just what I need. I will post a photo of the tea towels soon too, they have turned out so cute! And they were so much fun.

Have a great weekend!
