One day after nap, Kate came out of Preston’s room in this outfit. She looks like a teenager to me! :(
I have taken advantage of some of our sick cold days with a pinterest project! Christmas cards are now all binded and labeled!
Preston and I were in Goodwill looking for something (another pinterest project) , and I saw this lovely moses basket. It was only $5.99, but I walked away and didn’t get it. I called Luke when I left there to brag about my self-control, and he told me to go back and get it! Such an easy pushover! I went back immediately and it was gone! I headed to the cashier to make sure someone had bought it and that it hadnt been moved, and I passed a lady with it in her cart. I had already made eye contact with the cashier, so I explained I had come back. The lady overheard me and insisted I take it. She said she was just buying it because it was such a good deal. I told her I was going to get it for BabyC#3, and that we really didnt need anything for this baby but I have always wanted one. She was so sweet! She tried to pay for it too, but the cashier had already rung it up. I told her I considered this Baby C # 3s first gift!
Speaking of our adoption stuff, people ask all the time where we are in the process. We have submitted all of our paperwork and are approved for an adoption. We have to turn in our profile for birthmom’s to look at, and then they will hopefully place a baby with us! We have held off on our profile because we are trying to get all of our money in place. I applied for five grants two weeks ago, so hopefully some of those will come through. Remember, you can also purchase coffee. Every little bit really does help. We have completed each step so far as we have raised the money, and this part is going to be no different…it is just way more than the previous payments.
They each stole on ear from the cake,,,just like their mamas used to steal roses from Nannie’s cakes!
New Year’s Day meal at Nannie and Uncle Brent’s!
We spent NYE at home! The kids and I had a horrible day at home (that involved a fish tank full of books, an address stamp on the wallx20, and teetee in a mixing bowl during nap time). I was exhausted by the time Luke got home from work at 7, so we decided to stay in. We did sparklers, played board games, and made it til midnight (Luke and I…we put the kids to bed early after that day!!)
We enjoyed the Liberty Bowl Rodeo with the Trusty’s! It was Preston’s first rodeo and he liked everything but the calf roping. He was extremely worried about the calves and got upset. Haha!
I know these are totally out of order, but they keep uploading like this?! Amy and Benny came back on December 26 for a visit. We went and visited Luke in his office and then ate at The Rendezvous. It was delicious as always!
I have made a few resolutions, but my word for 2013 is consistent. I started doing a word for the year in 2011 (simplify) and last year was seek. I like having a word I can base my resolutions off of. I hope to be more consistent in my disciplining/fun with the kids, in my Bible reading (chronological reading), in exercising (5K in March!!), and in being a sweet wife. I cant wait to see what this year holds for me and for us as a family! What are your resolutions? Do you make them?
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. Oprah
