i feel terrible forgetting to do this because i know someday im gonna want to look back on this blog and go oh yeah i remember that pic or i remember that time, but instead ill say jeez why didnt i take the time to write about christmas or thanksgiving? so ill start with the most recent holiday which was christmas, we had a really good christmas other than the fact hubby had to work, he spent the morning with us unwrapping presents, listening to christmas music and helping me make a wonderful breakfast! nana came over and we ate french toast bake, bacon, sausage pinwheels , and mimosas. our morning was probably the most magical christmas i can remember having, everyone got what they wanted, everyone was happy, calm content, and the best part about it was the big flat screen i got hubby as his gift and then watching toy story 3 on it! well that tv is awesome but come to find out i can get the same brand same size for half the price im paying through rent a center, yep i love to get taken, its just not me to not! insert eye roll here. moving on to a happier topic payton LOVED her 2 lalaloopsy dolls, her rocker and pottery barn doll sophie and sophies sleeping bag, as well as the cheesy disney princess set which supprisingly hasnt broken yet! my only regret is i dont feel like i took enough pictures, ah well theres always next year right?

its cold outside right now! i went to pick preston up from youth group and almost grabbed a sweatshirt! today was so beautiful, i think we will actually be wearing pants soon, im ready to break out the ruffles i have stashed away for payton and my boys have 2 giant sized bins in the garage stuffed with winter clothes, its great the boys can pass stuff down to each other! i have a gap sweatshirt i bought kyler when he was around 7 or so and this year (7 years and 2 kids later) collyn will be able to wear it, the great thing is it looks like new still, even after a gazillion washings. so i guess i got my moneys worth out of that sweater along with so many other pieces of clothing i have been able to save and pass down. i guess sometimes it pays off just a little to be clothing obsessed, yes i admit i am and i dont care who knows it! speaking of clothing.......my awesome trading assistant is selling off paytons 09 fall/winter stash everytime i go back something else has sold, im like dang what a great job she did with those auctions! anyway back to reality....i have pneumonia and im feeling pretty crappy, but the dr. i have is so nice and she gave me some great stuff to take tonight! ohhh yeah!

i should make this a bigger priority but with 5 kids im spread so thin and it seems like im constantly busy. i recently watched a movie called motherhood and it was so hilarious and i was able to relate w/ it completly. anyway payton and i were swimming yesterday and i was swimming toward her pretending to be a shark and she was screaming and laughing but she got a little overwhelmed and said wait mom, pause, so everytime she wanted to stop she said pause which i thought was really cute, where did that come from anyway?
