Behold my little snow beasts. The girls LOVE playing in the snow. They get all bundled up and then head out to the back yard to play. They love to make snow angels. They throw snowballs at me by hitting the sliding door. They get a kick out of swinging in the snow, but mostly going down the slide since it shoots them off the end because of the snow and their slick snow pants. I love my little snow beasts!!! They're so darn stinkin' cute, especially when they're happy and getting along with each other.
So, I WAS going to do a really cute post about how Trent and his twin friends Jason and Tyler got into trouble the other day but I just didn't get the pictures taken and loaded like I wanted to. So here is what happened essentially. Tyler, Jason, and Trent managed to push our little picnic table over to the big table one night right after dinner. Dinner hadn't been cleared yet because of the arrival of Tyler, Jason, and their brother Matthew. I had left for ward council and Ben was watching all 6 kids. Needless to say, he found the boys with the picnic table up to the big table, Trent was ON the table IN the Lasagna!!!! What a goof ball. He climbs on everything! Other than that....lets see. Marissa has a viral infection that has landed us with a nebulizer to use on her for the next while until she's better. Luckily it hadn't turned into pneumonia. Audrey had a cute Christmas presentation and party at School today. Ben went to see it since I didn't want to take Marissa out of the house just yet. He video taped it on his blackberry for me though so that I can see it. I need a camcorder I've just decided....lol. I'm excited for Christmas to come next week! YAY!! I love Christmas! Ben has been taking presents to work and wrapping them there. I'll just add bows and we'll be good to go! Anyway, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!
Ok everyone, here's the deal. My friend Angie over at the Saunders Clan (see side bar) is trying to get up a group to do our OWN Biggest Loser competition. Now, I don't know about YOU, but I certainly need to lose weight. I want to do the competition because it will hopefully motivate me to lose the weight more. Only a couple of people have expressed interest on her blog (Me, my friend Kristie, and Angie's friend Alicia) so I'm posting it on mine. If you are interested and want to join us in January to do the biggest loser leave me a comment!! If you want more details, link over to her blog from my side bar and find her "Biggest Loser" post. It will be fun!!! Come on folks, lets lose that Holiday weight!
Life is GOOD today!! It's Christmas Time. There's Christmas music to listen to. Marissa actually slept ALL night in her OWN bed. The kids are behaving. Trent took a morning nap. Marissa actually slept ALL night in her OWN bed. It's Friday. I don't have to cook dinner tonight because of a ward Christmas Party. Marissa actually slept ALL night in her OWN bed. Ben will be home in 4 1/2 hours. My cold is better today. Did I mention that Marissa slept ALL night in her OWN bed??? LOL. No, seriously it's a big deal to me. Marissa RARELY sleeps all night long, let alone in her OWN bed. She didn't even make a peep last night! None of the kids did. It was SO nice to SLEEP!! Now, if only she would do this more than once in a blue moon. I'd like for it to become a new habit. I can hope right? Now if only I had a self cleaning kitchen............
Have you ever noticed that life is always worse when you're sick? Of COURSE you have. However, as many of you will attest to, it's even worse when you're the mom!!! You can't just let yourself be sick and not do anything. Children still need to be fed and clothed. They still need to be bathed and taken care of. And have you noticed that all the whining seems worse when you're sick? Whine for this, whine for that. And on top of all that you feel like such a putz because the house is falling in shambles around you because you have absolutely no energy or desire to clean it. Worst yet, is that the culprit is just a stupid, old, ordinary cold!!! Bleck!!! LOL. I'm done ranting now.
