This past weekend BJ went with his buddies on a camping trip to Oklahoma. It just so happened that a cold front came through and it was in the 20's at night. Needless to say he came home with a fun case of strep A.
While he was gone we managed to unpack about 13 boxes from the garage that are begging to be unpacked. Many of them Christmas boxes!! So we got one tree partially decorated. I also wrapped all the presents I have bought, which is nearly everything. I am so close to being finished shopping!
Ella bonked herself on a toy while trying to walk. Poor thing is so easily injured!
Sunday night Hayden and I were taken on a special suprise date by my parents. We didn't know where we were going and when we pulled up to "THE NUTCRACKER" I got a little nervous. Hayden has gone to a few movies and gets restless during them, so I was nervous that such a wonderful outing would be too much for her. But she surprised us all and did amazingly. Yes she wispered through the whole program and let out a squeal during a quiet time, but she did great. She loved the sparkling tutu's and was not so keen on the rats. YUCK! We had a lovely outing and can't wait to go back with all of the girls one day!
Also in the news, Preslyn has now joined the walking gang! She just took out yesterday and started taking steps! Ella is a walking machine now. She walks everywhere. Preslyn has started waving and saying "thank you" occasionally . My girls are getting so so big.
Hayden knows how to count backwards from 5 and how to say Merry Christmas in Spanish! And she has started identifying numbers, even out of sequence!
The other night she said," Grammy you sure do come in handy." It was so funny and she just said it out of no where. That girl is a hoot!
We recently unpacked some of her toys from the old house and she has played with them like she's never seen them before! She is loving Mrs. Potato Head and now sleeps with about 12 animals in her bed. She is very concerned if even one of them is missing and in the day time she puts them in her little doll pack n play.
I'm in the process of uploading some new videos so stay tuned!
