almost 2012??

yes, i have been AWFUL at blogging for the past two months or so. i stay so busy keeping up with two babies now, it's so hard to have time for anything else. I've started working full time at the daycare for the most part, but i've also been job hunting too. no luck yet, but hopefully i'll find something soon. allen's been busy at the church and so have i. Christmas is always a busy time for the church, and we had a toddler parade and production, and it's just been crazy!

judah and mikaela have been growing like weeds. mikaela was 16 pounds at 5 months old at her last doctor's appointment. she's a growing girl! and she has two bottom teeth now too.  judah's been busy talking my ear off! i seriously sometimes just want to go sit in my bathroom and hide because he talks ALL THE TIME!! and he'll ask me the same question over and over and over...even if i give him the answer, he'll still keep saying the same thing. it drives me crazy! but he's a good boy. he'll come up to me and say "mommy, i want you"..he wants me to hold him and cuddle with him. i think he realizes now that he has a little sister who takes up alot of time too, so he values the time we have together. and i promise those few little good moments make up for ALL of the bad/temper tantrum moments. but i will say that i'm not a fan of (almost) 3 year olds. they are a ton of work!!

besides that, we had a great Christmas. we got to spend awhile with our families and judah was SO excited to have Santa come and visit his house! we made cookies and left them for Santa, and on Christmas morning, Judah was kinda slow at first about being excited opening presents, but let's just say he got the hang of it quick! he had so much fun! allen threw me a graduation party, and i got to see alot of our friends, and got to meet paul's wife for the first time. i don't really want to go back to Kentucky to be honest. i love my family and i miss them soooooooooooooooo much!!
