A little bit stressfull!

The start of 2009 has already been a little overwhelming. So far it has looked like this. The heat and blower on our car stopped working, five hundred dollars later it's fixed. One week later, Jeremy was in a pretty bad car accident. A woman in front of him lost control and he had no option but to run into her. Her car was fine, ours is a total loss. So we are on the search for a new car. To add to the craziness, our pipes froze on one of our -50 degree night. Luckly with a hairdryer and some new pipe insulation problem solved! On top of an eventful couple weeks, I've started working toward my masters. I'm guessing it will be a long road and I'm sure it will take me at least four or five years. I'm trying to get into the swing of things and balance family, school and work. Needless to say, our house is a mess. On top of this, I'm going to be starting to sell jewelry. I have a party at the end of the month at our house and then four other parties booked for february. I'm excited and a little nervous. Since I'm not working as much, I thought this could be a good option. As you can see, 2009 has come in with a bang! We are hoping next month will not be as eventful!

A Long December

December was long and busy!! I felt like an official mother. Finish the baking, buy the gifts, get to all the parties, get the tree up. I feel kind of silly just thinking about it. Anyway, here are the pictures to prove it.

Here is Anders with Laurel. Family from California came to spend time with us! So sad for Sayla to say goodbye! (and the rest of us too)

Sayla ready to go to Lowes! If you don't know already, we are going through a Wizard of Oz stage at our house. Most days we refer to Sayla as Dorothy!

Anders was baptized, and we were so happy to have our family present to share the day with us!

Sayla refuses to hold Anders! I wanted a Christmas picture of the two of them. The picture speaks for itself.

Anders is such a sweetheart! He is such a good baby!! We just can't get enough of him!

We were pleased when Sayla announced she "always wanted" everything Santa gave her. She is enjoying her barbie and her Sleeping Beauty Horse that walks!

As we start the new year, I reflect on the struggles so many are dealing with. I am thankful for a year filled with so much joy in our family! I hope all of you have a wonderful 2009.


What You Will Find Here

This is a blog about me and my life. I write about the everything, and the nothing that consumes a stay-at-home mom of two. My monster is my one year old little boy, and his sister is my four year old daughter. You should know that I am not a writer, I'm not a speller, but I think I'm funny. I really get a kick out of myself sometimes. The truth is....I'm funnier in my head. So often, this blog is a bad attempt at humor and sarcasm, but mostly it's about the mundane, wonderful, boring, exciting, crabby, happy days we have together.
