Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas's! Ours has been full of emotions and a pretty rough one. It started off with Derek getting layed off of work till the first of the year. Then him hitting a deer on the last day of work.  It wouldn't have been that bad but he was in his sisters car! So needless to say it wasn't the best for his sister either. We feel so awful about. I was sick about it for a week and still feel my stomach turn every time I think about it. It did a lot of damage to the car. But thankfully Derek was okay. There wasn't anything he could do to avoid it. So with all that going on emotions was high. We did get together with everyone on Christmas Eve. Tyler ended up sick and sleeping most of the night.  Then in the morning  we got up and tried to get Tyler up but had no luck. So I got the turkey on. Then tried to wake him up again. Didn't work so he got up at 11 just in time for company to show up. That whole day was a blur and stressful with 20 people in my house. And having cooked the whole meal for them with my sisters in laws help! NEVER again. LOL Then that evening we had another dinner. Derek and I have decided to do like the 4 Christmas movie. Avoid jumping family to family's house and squeezing everyone in and just go on vacation somewhere new every year. First  being Christmas in New York=)

Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

The past few weeks have been filled with Christmas stuff. I love it. We have went and looked at lights, did shopping, lots of hot chocolate, winterfest(outdoor ice skating downtown in the city), all night movie night (watching only Christmas movies with the fam), more lights, youth Christmas party's, church Christmas plays. It's been great. The only thing that could be better is having snow! But oh well. We still have lots of party's and things lined up all week.

Girls Night

So I had my first girls night since having my son 16 and a half months ago. I didn't know what to do with my self. The hour drive to town I keep turning and looking for my baby. It was sad. I was away from my baby for 6 plus hours. After I got adjusted to him not being there, time flew. I had a great time. Autumn had a red white and black tea party! We all got dressed up meet at her place ate way to much desert foods, coffee, and tea. We shared Christmas reading then played games and talked the rest of the evening. I think once on month girls night is gonna be in order from now on.

Whole House

To CLEAN. Boy did I not miss So now that I am living at home, I am finding the house hold chores to be the most difficult thing ever. Add a 1 year and it is impossible. I can have the living room picked up spotless and move to the kitchen to clean go back to the living room and total tornado. And the toy's! I am almost sure they multiply by night. Oh well I love being at *HOME* and would not want it any other way. I also love getting to be around family and people threw out the week. It makes a long day go fast.  This weekend is gonna be a full one. As we are trying to get everything  unpacked and reorganized. Dressers need to be moved. Bags need to be unpacked.  Crib needs lowered.  And the list goes on.  And with all that. Christmas shopping needs to be started. I have all the nieces and nephews. But have zero for Tyler or Derek. But I am clam and not stressed a bit.

Goodbye Farewell!

Last night was the final night in the RV. Shocked as I am? We got to talking and decided that Derek is just gonna drive the last two weeks of work from the house. It will only be 30 more minutes of driving for him then what he would be doing from the RV.  So please be in prayer for  him. He will be driving an hour and a half to work two times a day. I can not believe it is the end for Tyler and I. Last night I almost cried. NOT because I was sad. But I was ole so happy. Of course tears of sadness will come I'm sure. How could they not? So this is my very last post of living on the road.  I will be packing up things this afternoon to take *HOME* tonight!
