The Holidays...

are officially here and life is great. The blog has taken a beating though. Every day I think about how I need to get in here and add an update to our lives but time has been flying and we have been so busy that it just has happened.

So here's the lowdown... I think we have officially finished our Christmas shopping minus maybe a few odd and ends that can be bought any time. Olivia's birthday party was great and the neighbor had his birthday party too so the birthday season is winding down somewhat. Thanksgiving was great too. We stayed home and celebrated it with just the girls and it was laid back and easy. Ok so when Ava saw her plate of food she did shove it to the middle of the table and exclaim, "no like it" before she even looked down to eat it but it is what it is. She ended up eating a hot dog and an apple later that night followed by a whole lotta pumpkin pie. Boy did we pay for that the next morning. All in all, the holidays have begun quite nicely and everyone is happy and well.

Dave and I have had the liberty to watch a few movies and catch up on some recorded TV. We have spent a lot of time with the girls since he had several days off. We've been to the park, played with the playdoh, gone to the bouncy house, ate at a few restaurants, and really have enjoyed each other and ourselves with the girls.

We had some friends over for football on Sundays which has been really nice since the girls usually nap through part of the game. I've been reading, something other than blogs, over the past week and been able to soak in the tub without having to work it around a nap schedule. But I have not worked out at all in over a month and it shows. I think I've gained 10 pounds and really need to refocus but I know it will happen when it does.

This week is also our anniversary. Yip 4 years on Thursday. Dave will be working that day so we won't be celebrating on our official day but we will probably make up for it over the weekend. Secretly I am not so sad about it, Thursday is great TV and I'm addicted so it's cool.

Hopefully everyone else out there is having a great holiday season and enjoying themselves too.
