We went into Christmas Break so excited for no school and to spend quality time with family and friends...but when the flu hit our house all plans changed. It hit me the worst and I went 6 straight days with a fever, seeing spots, chills, sweating down to the mattress, and coughing like a crazy person ...all while somehow managing to watch kids, finish Christmas shopping, and attend parties with a smile on my face. It was all such a blur.
Reese's great grandmother gifted her with this giant unicorn 2 days before Christmas which led to Ryder being super jealous and insisting that Santa would bring him a giant animal too.
After a mad scramble we purchased this bear for $20 off someone's porch in Mountain Brook and hid it in Ryan's Tahoe until Santa could bring it Christmas morning.
Reese's one item on her Santa list was a Barbie Jeep and she was so excited. There may be some negatives about our new house but we truly have the best street for Power Wheels because we are on a dead end with no traffic. Now she just needs to learn to steer!
Ryder received several new games & accessories for his WiiU and loves going to his room to snuggle with Big Bear and play games.
In their bath robes Christmas morning.
Once the Christmas holidays were over and we had some days to recover we honestly had a pretty great New Years weekend. Ryan turned 38 and we spent most of the weekend relaxing under blankets on the couch, reading, cooking, and having cake with family.
This upcoming weekend Ryder turns 6 and we have a BIG surprise in store for him in the form of a 6 week old Golden Retriever puppy that he has wanted for over a year now. Keep us in your prayers this weekend as we balance work, small kids, and old dementia Maltipoo, and a brand new puppy.
