Fillow Pight!

This is one of the cute little Ryanisms I want to remember. The other day Pop Pop was here and Ryan asked him if he wanted to "Fillow Pight?" Say what??? You know, "Fillow Pight!" aka "pillow fight". Pop Pop gladly obliged.

Thanksgiving was nice. Gam and company cooked a delish dinner. Aunt Hil was home and was really helpful! I got so much accomplished while she was here. Thanks Hil!
I sorted through all the toys, got the Christmas tree mostly up, did some shopping...

Yes, Hil and I are nuts. Well, she'd tell you it's me the one who's nuts. We got up at 2AM on Black Friday and went to the mall. So did everyone else in the Tri-state area! I have never seen so many people in my life. Being we were both BF 'virgins', we had to try it. And we scored some bargains at Gymboree. Been there, done that. Next year I think I'll just stay in bed.

Molly and Kate have started some imaginative playing. Molly loves to play with the Fisher Price dollhouse they got last Christmas. She sits there for 15-20 minutes playing with it. For Molly, sitting still that long is a record. Kate LOVES stuffed animals! Loves them! She has so many in her crib there is barely room for her. Last night I was checking her before I went to bed and she was rolling around on an animal and getting agitated in her sleep. Needless to say, I removed some of the beloved animals today.

We put the tree up and the kids are fascinated by it. They especially love the $45 Hallmark ornament. Mind you we got it on sale for $11 but that's the price on the box. It plays music and they LOVE to push the button. Over and over and over and over and over.

Catching up with pictures!


Where does it go???? Really????

I never seem to have enough of it. I know, we all say that, but really, I need 36 hours in my day. I haven't updated this for over a month and a half. Geez. Kevin and I were talking about this the other day. The fact that we are so darn busy all day long that by the time we get the kids to bed, we collapse in our respective spots. Kev in front of the TV and me in front of the computer. You'd think I would update this more often, but mostly I do mindless surfing to try and relax and stay connected with the world.

My day today:

Woke up at 7:15ish
got the gang up and dressed and fed
took Ryan to school (the girls have been walking in with us instead of riding in the stroller)
went to the post office
walked at the mall and said hello (from afar) to Santa
fed the girls Happy Meals in the van (bad Mommy!)
picked up Ryan from school
came home
put the girls down for a nap
spent some time with Ry
cleaned the whole house while he watched Cars for the 105th time
got the girls up from nap
Daddy came home!
fixed grilled cheese and soup for dinner
cleaned up from dinner
gave Ry a bath
jammies for all
tucked the girls in
read Ry stories
and then crashed.


I get to do it all again tomorrow.

I wouldn't change a minute of it. Really.

So much has happened since I last updated.

~Ryan turned 4 on October 13th! My little baby boy is growing up. He had a great birthday with a family party and a friends party. He got lots of Cars paraphernalia.

~Kevin cut his finger at work and passed out while getting stitches.

~Molly had her 3rd ambulance ride. Yes, 3rd. She took a fall at a friends' house and hit her head. She did the turn blue thing and had a seizure. Scared the beejeesus outta us again! They did a CT scan in the ER and all was well.

~Aunt Gina got married on October 28th. Mommy and Daddy spent the weekend in Cape May while a sick Gamma and Aunt Hil babysat. Auntie Kelly helped too.

~Halloween! Ry as Buzz Lightyear. Molly and Kate as fairy princesses! Too cute!

~More sickness. Gamma spent a few days in the hospital with pneumonia. :(

~Ryan, Molly and Kate then got Bronchitis. Kate's turned into pneumonia. :( Mommy and Daddy ended up getting sick too.

Thankfully, everyone is back to healthy now.

Thanksgiving is upon us and then we start the Christmas countdown. Like I said, TIME! Where does it go?????
