Getting our tree

Sunday was cold and lightly snowing, the perfect tree picking day. The kids were all for it, then screamed "HOT COCOA" It was a little colder than we thought.

But we got the perfect tree and all is well in the world. I'll post some pictures of it lit tomorrow. After we decorated the tree and had hot cocoa, we went to the annual tree lighting in town. It was freezing by 6 and Trent wouldn't keep his gloves on. We didn 't last long before going into the church for more hot cocoa and cookies. We brought some cookies, since we have girl scouts in the house we were responsible.

Here's Trent singing with the High School Musical Sing It for Wii. He loves hearing himself sing too cute. And the other one, I'm not sure if he's taking them off or putting them on, it's been a struggle, but I think he finally gets that we don't pull on the tree!!!!!! Scary little man. Anyway, We're having a baby boy in a few months, yeah!! Two boys and two girls, how cool are we?

Today is also my birthday. I didn't have to change diapers or clean for the whole day! I picked up a little, but that's just because I couldn't stand the mess in the playroom until the kids got home from school. Sean even went grocery shopping with Trent, and I got to take a bath in the middle of the day!!!!! I got new slippers, a really cute sweater and a two new books. Then Kurt drove all the way here from Boston to see me and bring me the cutest leather box filled with the new coffee mugs I have been starting to collect. I don't need anymore now! That was so nice of him! Dad came over too with my gift of cash and hung out for a little while. Mom gave me my present early, a beautiful frame with pictures of my family in it. I feel pretty lucky today, but I'm tired from doing nothing. So goodnight for now crazy monkeys and happy birthday!!!!

Pictures for Christmas and Trent's 15 months even though he's now 16 months

Here are some of the pictures Kurt took for us. Are my kids so cute or what? I know I'm supposed to
say that cause they are my kids, but wow they
are so cute. I hope this new baby is just as
cute. they have pretty high standards.
Anyway, enough braggy. I'm having a
crappy day. Nothing is going good.
Trent has cried more tonight then in his whole life put together but who can blame him. At least 2 molars are coming in soon I hope. I can feel them right under the skin, and the bottom gums are really swollen too. The poor kid is miserable. Then I couldn't pick up these lovely pictures at Walmart because Kurt takes too professional pictures and I need him to sign a release form. But he's going to do that for me tomorrow because he loves me so much. I felt so dumb at the store. I started to cry when she was telling me all this, so I just walked away. Ah, hormones are lovely things aren't they. Then I didn't realize it was the 2nd today, so when Hailey didn't get off the bus, I freaked out and called the school to see if she went to Girl Scouts on accident. Now they must think I'm really stupid. Just one of those days not to put in the record books. Everyone has to have them once in a while right? Life has been so good here for so long, it was bound to happen. Tomorrow is another day, as long as I can get some sleep. Tomorrow Mom is coming over for a cookie bake-a-thon. Motrin for Trent 45 minutes before we start and hopefully he'll cooperate. I love to bake, it always calms me so I'm very much looking forward to it, and the girls are very good cookie helpers. Hailey rocks at rolling dough, which I suck at, and Kayla makes the cutest little balls. I'm going to take a picture of our new and much improved bathroom for the next blog. I keep forgetting to take a picture of it. It's exciting. I'll try to do more this week, but with my new facebook it's hard to keep up.
