Tucker recently

Tucker is so cute and funny and optimistic. He has said a few things lately that I don't want to forget.
New Years: "Mom, Two thousand eleven is going to be the best year ever!" Me: "Oh ya, why is that?"
Tucker: "I start third grade, get baptized, start cub scouts, learn cursive."

2 weeks ago he was bummed because Trent had a snow campout with the scouts and there wasn't enough room for Tucker to go. Then his Grandma called to see if Tucker wanted to sleep over at her house with his cousin Kyler. He was thrilled. When I went to pick him up the next day we all went to lunch at Chic-Fil-A, finished up with ice cream cones and then headed to the park where 2 more of his favorite cousins Chandler and Jack met us and came back to our house for a couple hours.
Tucker: "Mom, this is the third best day of my life!"

Yesterday, Tucker comes home from school and says, "I've got good news and I've got great news. The good news is, I kicked the kickball over the fence today, (a home run) the great news, we got to listen to the professional band at school today."

That kid is so stinkin great.

Clothes for me

 For Christmas I said, "I need clothes, bad." I basically had very little that fit or was cute in my closet, I couldn't bare to get rid of all the crap because I knew I would have nothing left if I did. Anyway, I got $300 worth of visa gift cards! I have about $30 left, but this is what I got.

The lighting was bad, but the far left is a navy cardigan.
Target and Marshalls. Also got some work-out pants not pictured.

H&M (my first time)

Downeast Basics (40% off dress sale) Also got a black and a white undershirt not pictured, plus a necklace that I might exchange.

I feel pretty good about my finds. I still needs shoes and a couple pair of jeans, maybe a couple t-shirts. but I'm happy!

I checked out Anthropologie for the first time in person. Such great stuff. But my money would've only gotten me a total of about 3 items there.

3 Day weekend


Captain Morgan anyone?

Charlotte is 5!

Charlotte's birthday is the day after Christmas. One of her favorite cousin Ashlyn's birthday is December 15 (a year later). This year we had a little party for both of them with Trent's family at the same time. It was fun to separate it from Christmas a little bit. So December 12th we celebrated with the P family.

Then on her actual birthday she had her gifts from us and brownies with candles. The next day I took her out to lunch and in the evening we saw Tangled with Andrea and Ashlyn! Not a bad birthday I would say.

Charlotte is getting so big. She says her F's correctly now which is great, but sometimes I miss the cute way she used to say them as a W. She loves to color and paint. She is sounding letters out as she see's them a little now. She loves her school. She likes dressing up and makeup and everything girly, and she also enjoys playing legos and star wars with her big brother. She is getting really good at riding her bike now. She is meek and sweet, she is good at sharing and loves her Grandma and her Nana. She loves snuggling and kissing and is more affectionate and clingy than the other kids. She can be shy at times. She is tender and sensitive. When I scold her she never talks back, but just nods. I love her and adore her. She is a sweet spirit in our home and a calming influence. I know that she will be a wonderful example of peace and kindness to all around her and we are so lucky to have her as ours!

For now

I had a post about Charlotte turning five, but we are having major computer issues over here and I have no access to my pictures or many other things, so it will have to wait.

The main things on my mind lately include:
-How to releive my poor Henry from the most horrible ear infection ever.
-New Year's Resolutions to do everything better.
-Wondering why I can't ever get my house clean and why I don't ever want to make dinner, since those are major items in my job description.
-Being irritated that I don't know my pupil distance, cause I really want to order some new glasses from zennioptical.com, like yesterday.
-Wanting to curl up under a blanket and warm up my fingers and toes and fall asleep.
