Merry Christmas

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas, I have so much to be thankful for this year, my family, my friends, my health, and one decision that i truly feel confident in. Today was a big disappointing day, i had interviewed for a job in a call center, i found out today i didn't get the position, they said it was a very hard choice but the person they chose was more qualified, but they did request that if another opening becomes available would i please apply. We will see, I thought this was the perfect job for me but God has other plans, I am not sure where he is leading me but i will follow. This past Sunday in church the priest during his homily said you need to listen very quietly b/c God sends you messages in many different ways, I truly realized that today when i didn't get the job at Childrens but still had NO REGRETS when quitting St. Elizabeth's, it was time. I truly work with some amazing people and I don't know if you read my blog but I will miss working with you, I have to say that I usuallly had a blast at work and never worked without laughing out loud, i don't know how many places you can work at and say that. I have been blessed to work with such great coworkers who will always hold a dear place in my heart. So to all of you that follow my blog, thank you for following along with me, and giving me your support by just showing an interest in the daily well more like biweekly updates of my chaotic families life. May you truly find the meaning of Christmas and peace in your heart. And find humor in your holiday! To all a Good Night...

breakfast with Santa

Saturday am we started the day with Breakfast with Santa at the firehouse, it was great, it was a pancake and sausage breakfast, Santa came. My kids only asked for one thing a piece, when Santa asked Audrey what else she wanted she just shrugged her shoulders and said "i don't know" she does want a swimming puppy which well Santa is going to bring her. christian also wants a swimming puppy, and Em wants a swimming baby thats all they asked for so i can't wait to see their faces when they get them, of course they are getting a ton of other stuff. I thought for some reason this year i cut the gifts down but after a wrapping frenzy on Friday that was not the case. Today we headed to Chris's grandmas for the Christmas with her, the kids had a blast but oh they were wiped and bedtime led to some knock down drag out tanturms, I was feeding Hayden so i couldnt' tuck them in, usually i throw them a kiss, Emma yelled while she was crying "i don't want that kiss" well then, all i could do was laugh which needless to say ticked her off even more. Tomorrow we are going to a chuck e cheese type of place with jeanette, that is her gift to them which i am hoping they at least sleept till 730 so bedtime isn't ugly tomorrow night. This am after church we scored some awesome deals at Old Navy. Tomorrow i am hoping to hit the gym in the morning to at least get us out of this house, but it is so darn cold. On another note i put in my two weeks at work, it was sad but it was time. I didnt' tear up until this evening when i talked to a nurse i work with and said they are planning a little dinner out for my going away, then it makes me sad, I've been in that unit 8.5 years but the time has come to move on. so on that note i am moving on to my bed..

a long day

today i went to my MIL to make cookies with 4 kids in tow, the roads were slick not too bad, luckily my niece and nephew also had off school, believe it or not my 8 year old nephew played with the triplets almost all day, Hayden hung out in his jumperoo the first couple hours on and off but after noon pretty much was held by me, this little piggy has ate almost non stop all day i guess he is hitting some growth spurt, its almost like when he was a newborn. the triplets are almost easier in some aspects, when they want to be fed they ask for a snack, they go to the bathroom by themselves, and can entertain themselves, Hayden is not so easy plus he didn't want to nap all day but wanted to go to bed at 630 which i didnt' let him. the kids made sugar cookies which in the first picture Emma and Christian are reaching to get a cookie, Audrey doesn't like cookies (not my daughter) so she asked for marshmallows, and well Hayden apparently likes to play with my socks. The weather here bites, we have a nice sheet of sleet on the streets, with more to maybe come tomorrow and on Thursday so possibly no school which means no school till Jan 5, a long time to be trapped in the house. so as of now i sit blogging drinking a glass of wine, i need to pay bills after the kids go to bed but i am going to bed myself, i am wiped once again i slept like crap again last night. I am praying for at least a day of school tomorrow so i can finish up some wrapping and a little peace to myself before Christmas break starts.

7 months

my baby is seven months old,can you believe it i sure can't, i love every stage i can't seem to remember the little things with the triplets b/c either it was long ago or else with three at once you seem to forget. I say this every update but he LOVES his mama, if he sees me and somebody else is holding him he will fuss until i hold him, he has his two bottom teeth that popped out last thursday finally, he loves his big brother and sisters and they are really good with him. Hayden can sit up on his own now, loves to sleep on his belly, and DOES NOT LOVE SLEEPIGN THRU THE NIGHT LOL. He takes two naps a day and would probably nap more if we were home on a regualr basis. We tried giving him those gerber wagon wheels yesterday, he did like them. We have been blessed to have him as an addition to our family, God has blessed us with 4 wonderful kids.
The first picture is me and Cathy before our race on Saturday, first of all it was cold and i almost gave up a couple of times but Cathy gave me motivation, unlike the first race where i never walked i walked a couple of times but not for long, i had a heavy dinner on Friday night and bad cramps in my legs, Cathy and her friend Carrie reassured me some races are better than others which relates to life some days are better than others and some days we need the stregnth of God, friends and family to make it through. Saturday we went to cookies with Santa a fellow triplet mom hosted at her house and had a blast. Hayden really liked Santa, good thing b/c next year he probably won't. the triplets had fun, i will post pics of them tomorrow. But i had to post the picture of Hayden and Cooper they are best buds, they even like to dress alike, LOL. I love the bottom picture b/c of the grin on Hayden' face and the giggle from Santa it is priceless.
