Sick and lazy

My sweet Hannah lovin' on me

*sigh* So, after all the running around we did all weekend... we (hubby and I) ended up sick. Grrr! I could barely handle it yesterday. Being prego and all there isn't much you can take, but I tried Benedryl and it worked enough so I could sleep. I do feel a little better today, but I did call and tell them I am not coming to help at the soup kitchen tomorrow. I figure I better rest and I don't need to be giving everyone my cold or whatever I have (I kinda think its just allergies, now that I am feeling better so fast). Oh... I have so much house cleaning to do... Its a vicious circle. Clean before everyone comes over and have to clean after everyone leaves. LOL

Thanksgiving weekend

Hope everyone out in blogger land had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did. I got up early and went to the soup kitchen and helped cook and serve a wonderful turkey dinner. After that I rushed home to finish cooking our Thanksgiving dinner. Thankfully my hubby put the turkey in for me and cleaned house :-) All of our friends and family arrived around 5pm and we ate until we couldn't eat anymore. Ha ha. A little surprise, Josh's sister that lives at the coast was able to make it after all. That was a nice surprise. We don't get to see her often.
Black Friday.... I don't do black friday. I hate crowds like that, I would probably hurt someone LOL. Josh and my sister Marilynn get up around 2:30am and brave the crowd. I babysit (which is really just me and the kids sleeping :-)... I get the better end of the deal I think). But, thanks to their bravery we only lack a few things to finish Christmas shopping. Josh and I have sort of made a tradition for the last few items. We have a date night, dinner, maybe a movie and then grab the last few things we need. I am looking forward to it this year. We are going to go see New Moon. :-)
Later in the day (after naps were had by all haha) we put up our tree and then went to Marilynn's and helped her put up her tree. Lovely :-) We still have to put up our outside lights, but none of us feel very good today so I am not sure when that will get done. I did promise Hannah she could help me wrap presents today though. So I guess I will suck it up for a little bit. Ha ha.

Acacia helping put the ornaments on.
I just thought I would share this picture with everyone because I thought it was darn cute. Acacia, fresh out of the bath, decided that she need to "jam" on her guitar... naked. LOL I just love it!! She it so darn cute!
Break it down girl!
Saturday we went to our friends house to help them decorate their tree. My bestfriend Amy has 40 billion ornaments :-) and it takes her forever to do it herself so she recruited us last year to start helping her. We had a great time. We decorated, ate wonderful grilled sandwiches and french fries, and played cards until all hours. Love it!

New kitty

We have been adopted by a kitten. A few weeks ago we found two little kittens on our porch. We tried to nurse the little black one back to health but unfortunatly we lost her during the night. The little grey kitten we so little and starving so we took him in and feed him. We tried to give him away but no takers. So, now we have little "Boots". He is a sweet and super lovey cat. We have all fallen in love with him, although Acacia has claimed him. LOL

Its been so long...

Oh blog how I've missed you...

So much has gone on and I don't know how long I will have this Internet connection, so....

We went to the Asheboro Zoo and had a blast. I knew Acacia would like it, but, what I didn't anticipate was that she would cry every time we tried to move on to another animal. I finally had to make a big production of saying goodbye to the animals so we could move on. LOL

Josh, Hannah, Jaylynn and Acacia looking at the elephants

Halloween was fun. The kids did great, although it did start to rain and we (the parents) had an excuse to call it a night. We did have to take Acacia to the ER later that night, but it wasn't a huge deal, just an allergic reaction.

Jaylynn the witch, Hannah the vampire and Acacia as Tinkerbell

Acacia celebrated her second birthday :-) Oh, my baby is growing up so fast. Sometimes she blows my mind. She sings all the time, and not just kids songs, songs off the radio too. She almost knows all her ABC's and can count to 10. My little smarty britches! Ha Ha

Daddy helping Acacia open birthday presents

Oh ya... I am pregnant :-D I am a little over 9 weeks. We had an ultrasound and saw/heard the heartbeat. yea! We have had so many miscarriages that I just don't even believe it until that little heartbeat.'s to 3 kids LOL (oh, my what have I gotten myself into hahahaha)

Hope everyone out there in blogger land is doing well and has a wonderful holiday season.
