One week to go

Only one more week until Christmas!! I am so excited, I can't wait for the kids to open their presents. I will also be finding out what we're having on Christmas! I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I love this time of year though, it's one of my favorite times. Although, it's not quite the same when you're the grown up, but I still love it. Especially for my kids now, they are so excited for Christmas, Hailey made a chain at school and every morning she takes a chain off then counts how many days are left. I really don't have more to say, so this will probably be a short post which is totally unlike any of my other posts. All those who know me know I'm a talker :)

I guess I'll leave with something that Hailey did last night, I was sitting on the couch and she came and stood in front of me, and while sort of crying said she didn't want to be a mom, I made sure I heard her right and sure enough that's what she'd said. So I asked her why she didn't want to be a mom and she said "Because I don't want to leave you" I tried not to laugh as I could see she was really concerned about this. So I reassured her that I would always be there, and then I said that she had years to wait for that so not to worry about it right now. It's funny what kids choose to worry about. What silly gooses!! Right now Hailey is pretending to be Zoe, funny thing is she put on a diaper all by herself (or with Katie's help I'm not sure). Zoe wears a size 5 diaper, and it fits Hailey, also, she is wearing one of Zoe's onesies and, you guessed it, it fits! I can't believe how small Hailey still is. She weighed herself the other day, 32.2 pounds. Wow, Katie is almost caught up to her. I always get asked if they are twins. I can't tell you how many times I've said the words "No, they're actually two years apart, she's just small" I don't think they look like twins at all! Oh well. Anywho, now I really have nothing else to say, so au revoir!! I hope everyones last week to Christmas goes well!!

The Return

FINALLY!! We have our computer back, it's working for now but we're also getting another one. This one is so dead, hopefully the one we're getting will be better. We also have our van back, YEAH!! We were told it needed a new transmission so we parked it for 6 months, and the battery died. About a month ago we bought a new battery so that I could at least use it to take Hailey to school. Then Randy's grandma wanted to help us get it fixed so she paid to have us take it to another car garage. The guy there looked at it, he said the transmission fluid was low so he filled it then re-set the transmission and told us to bring it back in a week to run a diagnostic. So we drove it for a week, took it back, had the diagnostic run on it, and it was fine! Nothing came up. So now we just need to get the windshield replaced, have safety and emissions done and get it registered. I can't wait, we're getting a cash back check from our car insurance and we're going to use that to pay for it. So we'll be doing it all on the 18th (hopefully). It is so nice to have a vehicle again, I don't go a lot of places but it's nice to have the option!!

In way of other news, we're doing great!! We're getting ready for Christmas, and getting more and more excited every day! LeeAnn (for those of you that don't know, she's my sister-in-law) is going to stay here with us on Christmas Eve, I'm really excited for her to be here. So far the girls have made it pretty easy, the only thing Hailey talks about getting is a remote control truck, and Katie says she wants the same thing. So as long as we get that for them I think they'll be happy!! I'm excited too because I know what I'm going to get Randy and I'm pretty sure he'll like it, I'm not going to say what it is, but I am really excited to get it for him. I'm also excited and a little nervous to find out if we're having a boy or a girl. I would love a boy, but at the same time, I think I'd be a little scared to have a boy, I'm so used to girls. We'll just have to wait and see, I'm excited no matter what the outcome. If you want to take a guess as to what we're having, you'll probably want to get your guesses in now.

Well, I've rattled on and on for long enough, hope I didn't bore you too much, just wanted to get ya'll caught up!
