Coming soon

Our Christmas was great! Pictures are coming soon, along with a blog telling the adventures of our trip. In the meantime, Bo and I celebrated our SIXTH wedding anniversary. WOW.
6 years. Amazing. I can't believe it's been that long, yet at the same time, it seems like we've been together forever. Ha.
I love you Bo!!!!

Wish Us Luck!

It's going to be a LLLLOOOONNNNGGGG Day.
Our flight to Washington takes off at 2 pm and we don't get to Spokane until 7:30 pm their time, which is 9:30 our time. Oh man. That's a whole lot of traveling. Not to mention the hour TO the airport and then an hour and half to go to Moses Lake from Spokane.
This trip would be better IF WE HAD A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP!!
Last night Meg woke up at 1:30 and 2:30. Stinker. THEN our friends' van that we're watching (which was in our garage UNLOCKED ( the van, not the garage)) alarm went off at 4:30 am. I turned it off only to hop in bed and hear it go off AGAIN. So Bo and I went and disconnected it's battery. And let me just tell you that that alarm is LOUD.
So Bo and I haven't had much sleep and the kids most likely won't get their naps.
So please, WISH US LUCK!!

Whole lotta nothin'

(Who needs to go the park!!)

Nothing much is going on here. We are just chillin' like a villain waiting to go home to Washington for Christmas! We go on Wednesday and will be there until the 5th of January. YAY!

We are getting the house clean and last minute shopping done, which really isn't all that interesting, hence no blogging. Our day to day conversations consist of telling Carter over and over again how many weeks, now days, till we head to Grandpa and Grandma's. Grandpa being my dad, Grandma being Bo's mom. haha.

We did go see the Princess and the Frog on Friday with some friends. I liked it, but it was a lot darker (evil) than I thought it would be. Still, you gotta love the classic drawing with the music, old school Disney.

On another bright note, Bo is off of school for 4 weeks! That's right, FOUR WEEKS!! Yeah baby. And can I say how fun it is, and I know this is mean, to threaten Carter with calling Santa when he misbehaves?? HAHAAA. Seriously lovin' that threat. Whatever works friends, whatever works.

My Buddy and Me

Man I love these kiddos!! They have been really getting along lately. They play with each other, watch TV together, laugh together, chase each other, and as you can see in the pictures, they love to just sit down and talk together.
I think my favorite time of day is the evening time. Almost every evening you can see these two running around chasing each other and laughing their heads off. They think they are so funny, and if you ask Bo and me, we'd agree.

Festival of Lights 2009

Like we do every year around this time, we went to the Festival of Lights at Moody Gardens. This year was great because they had all their lights back up, just like it was pre-Hurricane Ike. Last year it was kinda pathetic, with the course and lights only being half the size.
We started the night out by going out to eat. That will NOT be happening again!! Meg was a nightmare!!! She would not sit still and insisted on looking over the sides at other people and throwing chips in between the seats.
After dinner we went and got a hot chocolate and then headed over to see the lights. When it was all said and done and we were driving home, Bo and I started asking Carter what his favorite thing was. I thought for sure he would say the pirate boat. His response??? He said his favorite part was going home. !!! Ha! Crazy kid. He really liked the lights, so maybe he just didn't get the question? Kids are funny.

You can't see them very well, but in the bottom left corner are Bo and Carter.

Christmas gift?

Meg found an old purse of mine, and like a true girl, swung it over her shoulder and strutted around the house. I think I might have an idea on what to get her this year. . .
Not to be outdone in the picture department, Carter insisted I take a picture of him too. I taught him his moves.

Thanksgiving 2009

Our Thanksgiving was GREAT!! We had it had my house with a couple of friends and my cousin Jackie and her family, including her mom.
We had yummy food, good desserts, and great conversations. Lets not forget the Rock Band either. haha.
There were only 4 kids total, so the chaos was at a minimum.
Unfortunately I did not take any pictures. I was too busy playing the hostess. I might have to steal some from Jackie. So to tide you over, I've included two wonderful pictures of the kids with my parents' turkey. No they did not eat it for Thanksgiving, at least last I checked they didn't. I can't make guarantees for Christmas though. . . .
