Catching up.

I hope to be doing some more updating here. I deleted my facebook account for several reasons, but I'd still like to keep family and friends in the loop. The past three months have flown by. So much to do to prepare for Christmas (and we still have one celebration left on Sunday!) and then recover from Christmas. I know I am definitely looking forward to seeing what 2012 has in store for us. I'm hoping it's a little less "eventful" than 2011 was. So far, so good.

In the last three months:

-Matt got a new job
-We got a new (to us) car
-Stella turned 3!
-Our iPad was stolen
-Spend Thanksgiving with Matt's family
-Fixed the fence so Jack could no longer escape
-Got a new storm door
-Celebrated Christmas with my sides of the family
-My mom & stepdad sold their house and bought a new one
-Made buffalo chicken lasagna
-Matt took over laundry duties
-I got a part time job
-Celebrated New Years with our friends Nate & Dani, Eli and their twin girls
-Brewed beer
-Played lots of Jackrabbit (marble game)
-Stella spent a lot of time on her art, reading, and numbers
-Wyatt has grown by leaps and bounds
-Jack started howling (at ambulances)
-Haven't done much traveling
-Made lots of chili
-Drank lots of coffee
-Enjoyed the mild winter

Stella came out of the bathroom this morning and said,
"Momma I need those wings Nana told me about."
"you need wings?"
"yes, to fly in the bathroom. To the ceiling. I move my arms to try but I just can't"

Sunday fallday

Today we stayed busy doing fall things. The kids didn't really think it was that cool and were crabby/sassy most of the day but I'm glad we didn't consider today a loss because of that.

Wipe your tears

The molars (3!!) are through. Our house is about to become a lot more peaceful.

Update on milestones

I just had to get on here to say, Wyatt took steps yesterday! He can stand on his own for a few seconds but he has been pretty stubborn about taking steps. I'm in no rush for him to start walking, but he just looked too cute when he did it. He woke up this morning saying "Mama, Dada, Nana, Dedda! (Stella) over and over again.  He said thank you when I gave him a banana and repeated "uh oh" when he dropped a piece on the floor. Growing so fast!
