Catch Up

i so need to catch up. We're in Huntsville, Alabama with Levi's parents. We had a GREAT time in Florida with my parents. When we got off the plan and were waiting for my mom, Addy had tears of joy in her eyes. I got teary at how excited she was to be with her family. Christmas was wonderful. It was so cool to watch Addy believe and enjoy Christmas. We drove from Florida to Georgia and got to spend a night with Levi's sister. It was good to see her and her family. We drove to Alabama yesterday and have enjoyed being with Grammy & Poppy & Mimi.

If you read Levi's blog you know the van broke down on his way to Florida. I'm still not sure what we're going to do about it. It is supposed to be in Huntsville this week and we'll get it to a mechanic to fix the brakes. I'm thankful it wasn't the transmission but we are getting rid of it and getting something else, enough is enough.

Speaking of enough, I guess that's enough for now. Hope you all had a great Christmas.

Christmas Light Junkies

Our family is turning into a family of junkies....for Christmas lights. Seriously, so far this week, 3 out of the 5 nights, we're driving around Rowlett looking at Christmas lights. We have so much fun doing it. My joy comes from the backseat. There are constant squeals of excitement from Addy and she's saying, "Look, look, look!!!" It has been so much fun. Keegan's back there saying, "Santa" over and over. It is so cute!! I love it. Levi and I just look at each other and smile. I do have to contribute Addy's love for Christmas to her Grammy. Levi's Mom LOVES Christmas. We are hanging out with our friends, The Hortings tonight and we're all going to go look at lights together. We have so much fun with them. Here's to Christmas Lights :)

It's been too long.....

I haven't blogged in a while. We had Aunt Connie last week and stayed very busy. We had a great time with her. It's so good to be with family. This week started well except that Addy and I are both trying to get sick. I'm going to call the doctor tomorrow if we don't feel better. We leave for Florida next week and I don't want us to be sick for any of that. We have a busy week. We have another cookie swap tomorrow and other various appointments. Then this weekend we have a lot going on too. It's kind of crazy but it will be fun! I took the kids and got their Christmas pics taken today. They turned out cute. I hope to blog before we leave but not sure that will happen. If not, Merry Christmas!!

So Keegan has begun talking. And he's trying to say all kinds of stuff. He started saying poopoo and pointing to his diaper. We put the potty out a few months ago and let him sit on it and we talk about it. Well, he's started getting more interested in it. So, last night he sat on it and I think he used it. I couldn't be sure. So, tonight, he said "poo-poo" and sat on the potty. All of a sudden, he started peepeeing. I was so excited I yelled, "Yeah Keegan," which startled him. He jumped up and peed on my foot. I didn't care I was so thrilled he actually used the potty:) woo hoo for the K man!!!

We had a rough night last night. One woke up with diarrhea, the other woke up afraid of geckos. Poor Keegan has a fierce diaper rash from the diarrhea so he stayed up from about 2 - 4 and then woke up for good around 7 something. What a rough night!! We are all pooped...ha ha, no pun intended. Levi's Aunt Connie is flying in this afternoon. We are all excited to see her. This morning we've been finishing up laundry and a little cleaning and straightening. Hopefully the kids will get some rest before we pick her up.
