Christmas 2011

This year for Christmas we are in New Jersey visiting my parents. I have to say I miss my parents living in Houston but its nice that they moved because we are able to see more family now since pretty much everyone is living on the east side of the US. On Saturday we went to Pennsylvania to my uncle Denny's house. I saw my grandma, aunts an uncles from my dads side and my cousins too. It was great!

Then we came home, opened our Christmas eve jammies and went to bed. But before going to sleep Ally Jon and I made sure Maddie heard the reindeer on the roof. She was so excited for Santa! We woke up and Santa was good to us. Its only going to get better because having kids makes Christmas awesome. I loved it.

Today I'm feeling a little under the weather. I think whenever my body knows I have a break, it decides to stop fighting all those germs that my first graders sneeze on me and lets me get sick. Thanks body. I have spent most the day laying in bed sleeping.

Now I'm just looking up teaching stuff emailing it to myself. Which reminds me, you need to watch the documentary "Waiting for Superman". Its about America's public schools. Its insane. And it made me a little crazy. But I know I am doing my best. But my little ones are fighting an up hill battle and I know that it will only get harder for them. AH! This makes me never want to quit my job. But I miss Kingston during the day too. What a dilemma!

I hope everyone's Christmas 2011 was wonderful. New Year's is next! Whooo-hoo.

Well I'm sitting at the car dealership waiting for them to do the emissions on the car. I've been here for two hours. Did I mention that I already did the emissions and they "can't find it in the system"? Yeah. This is my life. Kingston is way past his nap time and I'm getting pretty cranky too.

On a brighter note, we are leaving for NJ in the morning! I'm so excited to spend christmas with my family. I am completely excited for my moms cooking. I mean I've come into my own in the kitchen putting together meals for Jon and Ally but there is nothing like eating food like my moms. She's just a great cook. I'm also excited for Christmas morning. Mainly to see Kings eyes wide with wonder at all the wrapping paper. He couldn't care less about what's in the box but he will destroy the paper. Love that little bug.

Speaking of my little bug, we are in the search for a new sitter for him during the days. Can you say stressful? Well I think I found an awesome lady close to where we live so I will be meeting with her as soon as we get back! I have never prayed harder about something in my whole life! When you're a parent your children become more important than anything else and it has been a real trial being away from him everyday. But I know that my prayers will be answered and he will be in good hands until I can stop working and stay at home with him :)

Speaking of work I spent my last day with my kids in the office with my biggest naughty because OH hold up!! No joke the lady next to me at the dealership just said "wow, she talks alot" in reference to my baby bit! Ha ha ha. And he is wearing a shirt that has footballs soccer balls and basketballs on it. Really? He's just so pretty. Anyway... I was in the office with my biggest naughty because he touched a girl on the place that is not allowed if you get my drift... The police were involved and it was rough! So my last day of school was kind of a bummer. But oh we'll now I get to e with my baby until January 3rd!

He also finally learned how to roll over. He was a little slow. Mainly because he is huge. This is what I get for marrying a 6'5" man. The dr just laughed at my concern and said look at him! He has a lot to roll over. But he's a rolling machine now and maybe it was better when he was stationary...

Well I guess I'll post this and go see what the heck the hold up is on the car. Until next time! Happy happy holidays! I hope you remember the season for the season. :)

Ally and her Busted up Pelvis

This has been a crazy few days.

On Friday my sweet sweet sister, Ally, got in a car accident on her way to see her boo in Idaho. After an hour and a half of thinking she may be really hurt or even worse, dead, we finally found out she was on her way to a hospital in Tremonton, Utah. After the what seemed like 40 hour drive, we made it to the hospital to find Ally laying on a bed with a broken pelvis. She was pretty hilarious at the hospital because she was way hopped up on pain meds.

We got her home and now she is laying in bed. Dan, of course, made his way down from Rexburg and took care of her all weekend, setting his alarm for every four hours so that she could take her medicine. He was such a help and it really showed me how much he loves her. He had to go back to school to finish his classes up but will be back soon! Luckily, I still have today off of work so I'll be able to take care of her today. She is a trooper. She is in a lot of pain but she is still her ultra positive self and even made the trek from her room to the couch last night to enjoy the Kardashian family!

So heres to Ally! I wish you a quick and thorough recovery...Kingston needs his second mom! :) You are such a great girl and I am so glad you are here and kickin it!!! :) LOVE YOU SIS!!!!!
