How I am ending 2011

I was supposed to take this week off for some "me" time. I had shopping ventures planned, lunches with friends. Instead of my kids going to daycare as planned, i have had all three of them home almost all week with me....and I couldn't have "planned" it any better. Working full time, I miss the simple joy of just playing in the morning or making breakfast or playing in the snow. This may not have been how I planned my week, instead much better!

I will catch up the blog after the holiday with pictures of what we have been doing Until then, happy new year. Hoping for health and happiness in 2012!

Christmas Parties!

I don't know how it's been so long since a real post. So- not even able to remember everything we have been doing lately, I guess I'll leave it to pictures to help remind me...

We had our annual Christmas party at work. It was amazing...
Owen has that I'm so over it look...

And then we hosted our annual Christmas party at our house the following night. It was smaller than normal, I think we had about 23... but it almost made it better. we were able to talk to everyone and spend some good time with people.

Looking forward to this week. I was very ahead of the game this year...but still have so much to get done.

Wordless Wednesday

I have been so busy between work, the upcoming holidays and just life in general... I promise to post more later in the week. But until then, my wordless Wednesday:

Quinlin put the animals in time-out.... I love how they are all facing the wall. Apparently this little lady knows a thing or two about time-outs.

what a difference a year makes

Remember these school pictures? Owen and Quinlin had this year's batch taken. This time, reverse, Owen smiled fine, Quinlin was not impressed.

Quinlin last year:

and this year:

Owen's last year:

and this year:

and then they even took a picture of the two of them together...

Maybe next year, they'll both smile... one can hope!

Funny Things said

Owen's words to Quinlin in the tub "stop touching my pirates"'s privates, little man. Privates.

Sean and Hunter have had a nasty stomach virus the past few days. "Daddy came down with the sickies. I caught some sort of bug". Owen's response "was it a caterpillar?"
