Another Day

Hey all,

Sorry that it's been so long since I last posted. Each day seems to come and go so quickly that I forget how long it's been. A lot can happen in a month and then not very much all at the same time.

We've been so busy with our house. Getting everything done for it, and now trying to get everything done at our old house so that hopefully someone will rent it and we won't have to worry about it anymore. Then just getting our own stuff put away in our new house that time has flown by. We're lucky that Kevin knows how to do a lot of the things that were required to fix our hosue, and then the things that we didn't know how to do so that we've been able to take care of it ourselves. It's given us a little extra money for Christmas, not a lot, but any extra is always nice to have.

I would call Aurora my Impossible 3 Year Old. She is so smart and thinks that everything needs to be her own way. She's even starting to micic my tone of voice from when I'm telling her what to do, so that she has that tone of voice when she's trying to tell me or her daddy what to do. It's cute, but at the same time so aggravating. I always think to myself, "Grrr..... you're three. Stop, this isn't the way that you're supposed to be acting!"

And Spencer, it was a good thing that he stayed in his room last night after I told him to!!! Kevin was at scouts and I was putting Miriam to bed. Aurora comes in to tell me that Spencer had made a mess on my bedroom carpet (remember, brand new, only been in for a week or two). I didn't think much of it, and did a few more things. Then, I walked into my bedroom. It was a good thing that Spencer wasn't near me!!! He had taken the caramel syrup out of the fridge and held it upside down, while walking and thinking about who knows what. So that there was a trail of caramel syrup from one bedroom door, to the closet, a circle (like he turned around) back over to walk to the other bedroom door, with other little circles of caramel syrup all along the way like he couldn't decide where he was going or what he wanted to do. My brand new carpet. I haven't even had time to show it off. :( Thankfully, we have a friend who owns a carpet shampooer so we shampooed our bedroom carpet last night. It should be all gone now, but just the thought. I don't know whether to laugh at what my son must have been thinking about or whether to scream that he dripped caramel syrup all across the room.

Miriam of course, hadn't fallen asleep yet, so I had Aurora finish laying her down. That didn't work the best since Aurora didn't want to go to bed, but it was bedtime and I had to clean up caramel. The girl's bedroom door was shut, so at least I knew Miriam was safe from walking through the caramel!

We're trying to decide what to do for Miriam's birthday. She turns 1 on Tuesday!!!! A year already, I can't believe it. I think that we're going to go to the zoo, but I want to invite some others to go with us and maybe have some cake or something while we're there. We'll see what happens.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Love Lots,
