Making Thanksgiving dinner

Helping make homemade noodles for dinner!
Watching flour being sprinkled on the dough!

Christopher discovered the noodles don't taste good yet!

Working hard shaking flour off the noodles so they can be cooked!
They had so much fun making noodles, but had to go straight into the bath afterwards!

Happy Thanksgiving!

It is Thanksgiving again, and I thought what better to do today than talk about what I am thankful for. I am thankful for my children! Thank God they are healthy happy and the greatest gifts I have ever received. I am truly blessed. I am thankful for my husband who irritates me more than any human being could ever do, but at the same time is truly amazing! He always thinks of me, and does his best for us. He works hard and never gives up! I am the luckiest woman alive to have him. I am thankful for my family who are always there for me no matter what! We would not be where we are today without them!

Is it Christmas time yet?

Every day for the past couple weeks I have had to come up with creative answers to this question. Then finally the town put out their Christmas decorations and poof "Yes, Evie it is Christmas time!" "Whoo Hoo!" Was the response I received. She is so excited and can't wait to put up our tree. Which I usually do Thanksgiving weekend, but we are out of town for the weekend so it will have to wait until next weekend.

However, her excitement is contagious. No one can wait to put up the tree, and even worse no one can wait for Christmas to be here. They are excited to see Santa soon, we will see how that turns out! Evie knows she has to tell Santa what she wants to get a present so I know she will sit on his lap for a second! I can't wait since I didn't get a picture of the kids with Santa last year! I plan on taking them to Bass Pro shop they have tons of free stuff for kids to do, including a free picture with Santa! It is awesome if you live near one I highly recommend it! We got the kids great Christmas outfits and plan on getting family pictures done this year too!

From the mouths of babes!

Evie is coloring and I don't want to color to! I know shame on mommy, but I would rather be online right now. So I told her "I love watching you color. You color so beautiful!"

Her response was, "Yes, I am!"

I couldn't help but laugh! What a little goober! Her personality never fails to crack me up. After working a few hours this afternoon I came home to a bunch of messes. I told her I wasn't happy, and she replied (very seriously) "I so sorry mama!" While she shook her head from side to side. I couldn't help but laugh! I tried to hide my smile, but I don't think I was successful. She knows just what to say and how to say it! I'm in trouble!

No sleep and going insane!

I have had less and less sleep everyday lately. The kids as well. For some reason they keep staying up later and later. They won't sleep, and they are driving me crazy. Most nights lately it has been a bedtime battle, one I always lose! I am so wore out that I can't get anything done during the day. Everything is suffering! The house is a mess, and the kids main food group is chicken nuggets! Which makes me feel worse, and that doesn't help. I just need good sleep.

It's like they are trying to drive me insane. The kids pick the time when I need sleep the most to stage a bedtime coup! How rude! I am trying so hard not to take it personally, but most nights I wanna cry "Please let mama sleep!" Even if daddy takes over they don't let me sleep. I end up with one or both of them crawling all over me! Or crying at the door as they knock repeatedly! Thanks for loving me guys, now please just let me sleep!

I am going to try to get up earlier and make the kids get up! Easier said than done. If I can get up I am going to and so are they! If not then I am definitely working on nap time. No more than a 2 hour nap and no nap after 3 pm! No matter what. Hopefully this will help or I will need a vacation in the KooKoos nest!

taking advantage of a nice day

It is unusually nice out for this time of year so we've spent a majority of the day outside. It is so nice we are only wearing light jackets. Which is crazy for northwest Indiana this time of year, but I'll take it. I am so not looking forward to being stuck inside all winter. The kids played in leaves, on the swings, slide, and dug in the dirt. They loved catching lady bugs, and getting on their cars for the last time of the season. It was great. I know the further along I get it will be harder for me to do anything with them by myself so this was a nice way to get ready for the long winter.
