I can feel my brain unwinding

Hot diggity dog school's out for the semester!! I had my last final today for Medical terminology, all 500 questions of it...i think my brain is officially fried. Now I have a break until January 8th.
We had Alexis' birthday party on Sunday at Ceaserland...I forgot I really don't like that place. I'm going to have to find a different spot next time. maybe edru... all those kids make me nuts. Good thing I'm not going into daycare! She had a ball and was excited to see everyone. But where were Auntie Karen and Catie?? hmmmm???
I've had a hard time getting her away from the stacking toy that Papa and Grandma brought for Daniel haha
I have my second interview for the nurse scheduling position at Tendercare south Thursday at 10...say a prayer! It's a perfect job right now. Great hours, good pay and in my neighborhood! Talk to ya'll later!

Snow day!

We're all snowed in today....Alexis and I went outside and snow blowed the driveway while Daniel was sleeping. Then came in for hot chocolate! Poor alexis doesn't seem to handle being outside very well. Oh well, a few more winters and we'll toughen her up to snow :)

Another day, another huge accomplishment!

Daniel has started standing alone!! did I mention he's growing too FAST?!? Alexis is getting more and more comfortable with addition. She says she wants to be a fireman or a doctor when she gets older. I told her she has to know lots of math to do both so she's starting early. She's also getting better at writing! She's getting lots of practice though I was trying to find a karate class for her to take after christmas but I couldn't find any on saturday so I think we're going to join a tumbling/dance class. I know she's going to have a lot of fun

A tooth!!

Daniel FINALY got his tooth in!! the right central incisor he's been working on for WEEKS! He really looked relieved this morning, poor little guy!
Alexis' birthday party is on Sunday, but I haven't said anything to her about it because I want her to, you know, sleep and all haha She can hardly stand it, waiting for Christmas, every day she asks if it's Christmas yet, even though we have a chalkboard to mark the days off and we're doing an advent calendar haha
For those of you doing last minute shopping a few things I know she would really like are: Cinderella DVD, Polar Express DVD, Brother Bear DVD (she recently told me these are her favorite movies and of course I got her totaly different ones haha) She's getting the Barbie Pegasus doll, but not her sister or the actual pegasus...any way if you need more ideas let me know. Daniel will prolly like some boxes and wrapping paper

Too fast!!!

This morning, daniel stood up all by himself, not holding on to anything!! *sigh* He's so beautiful, I can't wait to see what kind of man he will become. Alexis has such a fire inside of her, she's very passionate. She has quite a life ahead of her! People with passion like hers rule the world.

Boy that kid can hang on to a cold! Last friday, Miss Char (the daycare lady) called me to come get Daniel because he had a fever of 102! poor little the next day I take it....105!! Dang! We zipped into ER where they diagnosed him with an infection in both ears.
He stayed home from Church on Sunday to rest, Alexis went with Gram to Church, then Gram came home at 11 to let me go to musical practice and bring Alexis home.
Monday morning rolls around, Mom wakes me up at the butt crack of dawn because her battery is dead...can she take my car? Yes yes take it!
So we stayed home all day Monday and I missed class. Meanwhile, Daniel is on an antibiotic and his nose is running like someone left the faucet on. EW Several shirts a day for him AND me. So now it's Thursday, his nose is STILL running and he can't breathe through his nose to eat yet....i hope he's all better soon. I bought one of those eucalyptes waterless vaporizers for kids that help you get decongested...he doesn't need all those meds in him.
Luckily Alexis and I have remained well mostly i think because I wouldn't let her touch him hehe awww...i know she misses kissing him. but plenty of time for that later.

Ahh what a great weekend! Got a great break from my parental duties and had a lot of fun with some awesome people. And I even got to Church on time. Took Alexis, Daniel and my mom to see Polar Express in 3D in IMAX today also, what a great movie!! Mom's birthday is this week, what should I get her?

I LOVE fall. Indian summer i that PC? I'm so excited to get out with my friends next weekend. first time since daniel has been born. I think what I'm most looking forward to is the morning after when I can just sleep and not worry about what Alexis is doing, when Daniel is going to wake up and how long can I let him play in his crib before I actually have to get up. Don't get me wrong, going out with friends is a huge deal too :) ahhh adult time. !!

Daniel is 6 months old!!

Today, Daniel is 6 months old. He figured out how to crawl and how to stand up in his crib. yikes!!! Alexis figured out how to drag him around the house by his hands and/or feet, with him giggling the whole time. Heaven help me, he'll be running by next week!
