Hello December!

Wow time is sure flying by is all I can say, it seems like just yesterday was the beginning of November. Just about 15 days of school left until Winter Break! I am pretty excited this year right now anyways because my mom, stepdad and sister will be spending Christmas with us here at our house. This will be the first time in over 10 years that I have seen my mom on Christmas Day. The girls are very excited about getting to see Nana and Papa and Auntie Lauren.

We finished up Christmas shopping yesterday and I feel we did pretty good and didn't overspend to bad. Maybe $150 on each one which is way less than last year. I can't wait to see their faces on Christmas morning, going to be exciting! This is also the first time that I have cooked a family holiday dinner! So glad my mom will be here to help LOL.

I was just sitting and daydreaming about the girls and realized that in 10 years Jessica will be graduating from high school and hopefully starting college! Insane and the fact that Hailey would start high school that same year! Arrggh have I mentioned that my baby is going to be 3 in March?? That's really hard for me to believe!

I also think she's at a perfect age (except when being a typical 2 yr old toddler), she loves to learn, sing, dance and have fun! She just makes me heart melt when she runs up and gives me a big hug and says I love you Mom. Awww, makes me a bit misty eyed.

Hailey is also doing very well with her ABC's, stumbles a bit over the L-M-N-O-P but what kid doesn't in the beginning? I have been working on them with her and she can now almost sing it all by herself. She also can count to 13 most times by herself and when she's in trouble and I start to count 1-2- she keeps going 3-4-5- etc lol hard to stay mad when she makes me giggle. She is becoming quite the little girl, loves to play with her babies and play house and still a rough and tumble girl too!

Jessica is doing very well in school, 2nd grade and is going to be tested for the gift program apparently. They sent a form home about a week or so ago asking if we wanted her to participate in that. I am excited to hear back the results. She's been on the honor roll every year and loves to read and learn new things. She's also growing up way to fast! She's so tall and so smart but time is going to fast for me.

Hmm anything else interesting? Just waiting to see if hubby will get his promotion in Jan rather than Mar, and hope to find out mid December. It would be great to know sooner than later! I pray he does so we can pay down the cc's and fix up the house and move into a much bigger house. We have outgrown this one soo much so I am looking fwd to a new one.

Guess thats about it on the home front, and hopefully I can do better at posting.

PS. Yes we finally had a family portrait done for Christmas. They turned out pretty good, I'll post pics tomorrow.
