The weekend

This past weekend was pretty good!  Nothing overly exciting happened, but overall it was good. 

Friday night we went to Home Depot to just look around and Mady absolutely loved it!!! She didn't want to leave the Christmas section. She kept running back over to there and didn't even care one bit that we weren't with her!  That girl is going to be a handful!! lol

Saturday, my hubby was off work so we were able to spend the day together... Christmas shopping.  The big girls went to Grami's to stay the night and the hubs and I got to spend time with the babies. We watched a couple movies and wrapped the big girls gifts.  

Sunday Hubs had to work. He got to take pictures of Santa and all the customers that came into the store.  The girls and I went shopping with Grami and then the girls and I went to hubs store and got their picture taken with santa. (see above)  
After Hubs got home from work- we went to my moms for dinner and then home again. 

Nothing too exciting, but it was a good weekend together! 

Hope yours was lovely!

Realization Friday- on a saturday

This week I have come to realize:

~ That its December in Ohio... and I have seen at least 4 people out mowing their lawn. This Is Not Normal.

~ That it takes kids 6x as long to clean something as it would me.

~ The above statement is the reason why I just clean stuff up most of the time! 

~ The house is only clean when no one is home, including animals. 

~ That I need to stop and realize that the special moments that annoy me... I really should be savoring because one day I won't have those moments. 

~ That God is so good!!  

~ That being broke really sucks... but its making me think more creatively for Christmas.

~ I really hate that we don't have the money to get our family anything hardly for Christmas. Our family has done so much, helped so much and just always been there when we needed it and it really sucks that at this time of year we can give them something back. 

Well that's all for this week!! 

Have a great weekend!!

A December to Remember-Part 1

Our December to Remember starts on Thanksgiving! We try and stay busy with different Christmas activities until actual Christmas!  

Celebrating Renbugs 9th birthday! Where did the time go?? 

These were from just One day!!  We went and had Tea with Grami (my mom) for Renbugs birthday. Its a tradition we have been doing for years now.  Afterwards we went out to Cleveland for their tree lighting and then we went to the Carlisle Reservation for the Holiday walk and train ride.  It was such a fun and wonderful day!  We defenetly were exhausted by the time we went to bed! 

Madybear loves our Elf!! 

Admiring the Christmas tree... in toddler talk- trying to figure out which ornament to play with first! 
It really was an amazing day!!  Really hoping the girls remember it all for years to come!!!

I have been trying for the last hour to upload pics so that I could write a nice long blog post... but ugh!!! of course my computer is running super duper slow, and I have run out of time. 

Stay tuned for that nice post! lol!- A December to Remember!

Today is a crazy hectic day. I start my 4th job today. lol. Yes that is right, I said 4!!!  And I am working 3 of them today!! 

First its the church... then to the office of another where I am starting today- going to be doing marketing or something- still not sure about all the details. And then tonight at the grocery store my husband works at- I work in the bakery.  *phew* a long day. But my babies and family is worth it. Ya do what ya have to do in order to have a decent Christmas!  

Things have been hectic and crazy and I have been an emotional wreck lately. But I know God's got this! And everything will be alright!! 

Anywho- I need to head off to the next place...
