Trying to Catch Up!

At this point I'm surprised my blog is even still here. Guess part of me thought when I logged in that it would have mysteriously disappeared. I have found that although things have been very busy that it feels like something is missing when I'm not blogging and keeping in touch with everyone. I've missed out on tons and I'm very behind. Since this is how I keep up with what is going on in our lives I better get back on track.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving - my camera stayed in my bag and I didn't take a single picture but we had a great time. We stayed at my dad's Thanksgiving night since we were Black Friday shopping and the kids spent the day with them. We got up at 1:30 to head out shopping and finished up about 1 or so that afternoon. I'm relieved to have started my shopping - we're not done but I think I'm about 65 - 70% through. I insist that this year I'm not going to wait until the last minute to wrap everything but I'm sure I'll prove myself wrong. I usually wrap everything on Christmas Eve - we'll see if I can actually follow through this year and change tradition.

Feels like everyone is on ball with Christmas this year - the Christmas parade in our town is today. Usually they are a week or two later than this but they've had lights up around town for almost 2 weeks now. I can't wait to see how Allie reacts to the parade - I think she'll love it! Speaking of which Allie got a haircut :) We finally got the ends trimmed up and her hair evened out - I love the finished product!!! Check her out -

She's adorable of course. I know what you mean about everyone being on the ball for Christmas. This weekend alone we already have a Christmas party and Christmas in the Park. I love the holidays but I feel so behind!

What a neat surprise to see you blogging again! I hear you on life being busy! Just try to get on when you can and don't stress about it. I've wasted so much time stressing when I can't be on and looking back I realize just how silly that was!

Allie's haircut is so cute! So glad you got some shopping done too! I went out to Walmart from 12-2 on Black Friday and was exhausted the next day! No more Black Friday shopping for me! :)

Yay for a blog update! :) Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving! Good job on shopping. I haven't even started, although I'm trying to get my husband to do it. :)

I think everyone is starting Christmas a few weeks early this year! A lot of the stores had Christmas stuff out before Halloween was over! I love Allie's hair with that cute side braid!

So happy to see you here and hope we get to see more of you... can't go without my Allie fix that many weeks :) So cute!

Cute! Bayley has that same shirt! :)

I have started wrapping gifts. Mainly so I could see what I have purchased so far. I still have a ways to go, so I'm behind this year. This time last year I was basically done. No money this time. Bleh.

Glad you are back. I've missed you!
