Oops I did it again...

Again I let time get away from me and it's been *gulp* over a month since I've blogged!!!!  I have all the usual excuses, so I'll just spare you from them. We've have so much going on.  I guess I'll just bullet point to try and catch up.

~ Emery has declared that Halloween and Christmas are her favorite holidays, so she is in heaven this time of year.  For Halloween she was Doc McStuffins and Chase was a Ghostbuster.  It amazes me how things that were popular when I was younger are now popular again. 

~ School is going well and both kids are doing fantastic.  Emery has learned to write her name and writes it everywhere.  Chase continues to make honor roll (they are both so smart)!!!  I'm not sure what next year will bring for me, but we are taking it one day at a time.

~ The weather is cold and rainy, so we are thankful to have the whole week off and not be out in it trying to get to school.  Poor Jeff was out in all day today and was a miserable, wet, cold mess when he got home today.  A big crock pot of Taco soup took care of that!

~ Looking forward to decorating for Christmas as soon as it dries up outside.  The kids are itching to get the Christmas tree up because they figure our elf, Buddy, will show up around that time.  Speaking of Christmas, their lists are done and boy do kids lists get more expensive as they get older!!!

~ We purchases the Little People Nativity scene when it was on sale a while back and I finally opened it today.  Emery has played with it for hours... literally hours.  It's so cute to hear her talk to Baby Jesus and the animals.

~ Still looking forward to our next Disney trip and are soooo close to the 180 day mark.  Sure time will just fly by.

~ Time really does fly by.  Emery now buckles herself into her car seat, when did my baby get so big? She shouldn't be able to that (and write her name, etc).  Ugh, bittersweet.

I would say I'd be better about blogging, but it seems I blink and the days fly by.  I'm hoping to get Emery's 4 year pictures done this week and some with her and Chase.  Bad news is that's more to add to our to-do list, good news is that means new pictures coming soon! 

****I am grateful for
1) warm houses on cold, rainy days
2) a whole week off!!!
3) time with family
4) movie nights
5) snuggles
