Can I just say hallelujah for an early bedtime for both kids tonight? HALLELUJAH!
This past 6 days has been kind of nuts around here, but lots of fun. Friday, I spent the day in Chicago shopping on Michigan Ave. with Brandon’s mom, aunts, and my sister-in-law. I scored some awesome things for the kids at the Disney store (can you say Dusty Crophopper?) and finished a few others that I was shopping for. It was cold but fun! Taking the train is always a good time, but whoa, I was beat at the end of the day!
Saturday, I went to a Thirty-One event with my friend, Jackie. She is a 31 consultant, and we got a sneak peek of the new spring catalog! Can we just say Kenley’s room is getting a MAJOR organizational overhaul. I am planning to have a party in January–so stay tuned for a link if you want to order!
Sunday, my college roommate Sheana came to visit. I love having her here, and I hate when she has to leave. We always have so much fun catching up, eating, and playing with the kids. I knew she would just laugh at Kenley the entire time she was here. This girl is just too funny, and has changed so much since Sheana was here in May! I am hoping that my sister and I will be able to go to Dallas sometime in February to see her. Twice a year is a good average!
In other exciting news, we have had a few unwelcome visitors (mice) in the house lately, and thanks to Brandon’s grandpa and some sticky traps, there are two less. Gah. I hate mice. They make SUCH a mess! We are in the process of redoing the duct work in our crawl space (see also: no insulation in there right now equaling cold floors) and I am hopeful that when this project is done, there will be fewer unwelcome rodents. We DO live next to a corn field, but still– I hate the mice.
I am checking things off of my list left and right (Christmas shopping, mailing out Christmas cards), getting ready for Brayden’s Christmas program Friday, and then heading off to St. Louis for the weekend to celebrate 6 years of marriage with Brandon. Six. Craziness! Can’t wait– I love celebrating in the midst of the holiday season.
