Shopping Frenzy

We went shopping again tonight. Got just about all of it done now! WooHoo! All we have left to get is something for my Mom...she is SO hard to shop for! She's into the Sudoku puzzle thing, so I might get her a book full of them...or maybe just a gift card to Barnes and Noble. Yeah, that'll do.

Andy is gonna be thrilled to see what Santa brings him! He's getting a shiny new bike! He has one, but it's a small bike and he's been wanting something bigger. See what you've done, Christmas Angel?? A little boy's wish is gonna come true on Christmas day! That kid is gonna make out like a bandit this year between me and MrKB, his fosters, and both our parents and Grandparents. Spoiled rotten, I tell ya!

Destiny is gonna do just as well...We didn't get as much stuff for Meghan though. We figure she's gonna be more interested in the wrapping paper and bows anyway. LOL

Speaking of Meghan, she's reached another baby milestone. She can now pull herself up into a standing position! I took a picture of her the first time I saw her do it in her Pack 'n Play. I don't have it loaded on the computer yet...when I do, I will post it for y'all to see. Won't be long now and she'll really be running me ragged! I wish she could stay little like this for awhile. I waited so long for a baby and I'm enjoying every minute of her baby days....well, almost every minute...she's gotten quite vocal lately, and at the top of her lungs too!

MrKB is feeling better...ended up going to the doctor, and just as we thought, he has strep throat. Got him his OWN antibiotics (y'all can quit worrying now) and today is the first day all week that his throat didn't hurt so much. He ended up missing four days of work. Ouch...We didn't take Andy for the weekend, obviously we don't want him to catch this crap. We'll see him next weekend. I hope he wasn't too disappointed...I'd promised him we'd make Christmas cookies.

I've got more stuff to tell y'all about, but Meghan is raising hell and I need to go get her to sleep. I'll try to post about it tomorrow...technically it IS tomorrow, since it's after midnight, so I guess I should say later today. That's it for now, though. Hope y'all are having a good weekend! :)

Take it from a sudoku addict - the sudoku book is a good idea for a present.

Looks like you've retired from HNT. Happy HNT anyway.

I'm so happy for you Dana! I wish I could say that I'm on top of all things Christmas, but I'm not. I still don't have the tree up. I've never been this far behind!

Robmcj: Nah, haven't retired...just didn't feel like it this week is all...forgot to mention that in my post, I meant to! Thanks for the nod on a sudoku book, think that's what I'm gonna do...

Jenn: This is the first Christmas in 3 years we've had our own place since we were on the road, and it's definitely the first we've had our own kids, so I HAD to be on top of things! LOL Housework has suffered though...hehehe

The best thing about of Christmas is spending it with your family. Everything else is still gravy.

Kids always love bicycles for Christmas. Ours wanted to go outside and ride them in the snow.

We still don't have the tree up yet; but we hope to put it up tomorrow.

Cool news about the baby sitting up. At that age they seem to accomplish something new every day. Looking forward to a few pics :-)

Glad to hear that MrKB is on the road to recovery!

Can't wait to see the pics! Very exciting.

Oh, it's nice to hear that Mr. KB is feeling better.

Awesome :) Ya'll are going to have a great Christmas and you are sooo busy. :) Good to hear MrK is doing better.

That's wonderful how the little one can pull herself up to standing position. That must be an exciting milestone to see. I hope you had a good weekend

to answer your question, I just don't feel comfortable having my diary public when I'm back in America due to privacy issues. But I'll be giving my password to anyone that asks and I'll still update every so often. :)

I hope you have a Wonderful Christmas.

Congradulations to Meghan! They do grow up too fast, don't they. Mine just recently figured out how to squeal really loud. Drives me crazy!

Jillian said...

How exciting I just love Christmas!! The joy on the childrens face is priceless!

Even with you having younger children you sound so much more organized than me...this is Tuesday and I haven't really done a lot of shopping...is that bad...you know, since Christmas is SUNDAY?
