Last night, I managed to talk Christi into going shopping with me this morning. I was so excited, that I had a hard time sleeping during the night. I kept waking up, afraid I had missed my alarm or Christi's text that she was here. But I didn't! After a quick trip to McD's for coffee, we hit Target. There was a dual car DVD player that Curtis and I were wanting, and we got it! I also got several movies for the kids, all super cheap! And to make it even more pleasant, Target was not as big of a nightmare as I was anticipating. They were really on top of it!
After Target, we made our way to Toys 'R Us to be one of "those mommies". You know the kind! The mommies who shove, push, and cause problems. These are also the mommies who will stand in line for an hour to buy stuff. I'm pleased to report that we didn't cause any mischief, nor did we push anyone out of the way for a toy. However, we were the mommies who stood in line for an hour to get presents! I got Elizabeth a pink MP3 player. I know, sounds silly to get a four year old an MP3 player, but just ask Shannon about how much Elizabeth LOVE her iPod! And it was only $10!! While in line, I also was able to get boxes of diapers for $10 each!!! Amazing!! Dad, I even picked up part of your present while there.
By 8am, I was home and ready for bed. But I had three little ones who were anxious to see me. :-) Aren't I lucky?
Curtis went in to Academy at 11, we had lunch at 3 at McD's (I've been to McD's THREE times today!), and I'm exhausted!!! The kids and I did a little Christmas decorating, which was fun and stressful all at the same time. The boys only napped for an hour, which really made for a tough afternoon. They were tired, I was tired, it just wasn't the best combination. Not to mention the fact that I think everyone (including me) was ready for bed at 6! To kill some time before bedtime, the kids and I drove around looking at Christmas lights. Now Ben is down, and the big kids will follow soon!
We have a big day planned tomorrow. Somehow, Curtis managed to get tomorrow off, without asking! So we're going to pick up our Christmas tree, have a big family breakfast, and spend the rest of the day decorating and wrapping!!

Me and Christi. We have a picture with us by all the yummy food that we made, but Michael jumped in on that one.
2006, Thanksgiving in Oklahoma City. Micah's first Thanksgiving, and I was pregnant with Benjamin.

Ha!!! She's loves having her own room, where she can have all her "fancy and fragile" things. Grandma made the transition a fun one with a trip to Target to pick out a new comforter, new sheets, and a new bed skirt. What else could this little girl want? Pink walls! That's the next step in this transition. I'm thinking that it will be sometime after the holidays!
Thanks Mom, for all your help! The rooms look really great, and I appreciate everything you did to help make them come together so well! We love you!!!

Momma (this could be your blogging debut!!)
Christi (just in case there's still something I don't know about Michael)
Megan (she's still a newly wed, and likes to talk about her husband! Plus you can go to her blog and see how adorably pregnant she is.)
Hannah (I know how much Hannah loves talking about Kevin, even though their not newly weds!)
Erin ('cause I'm always looking to give her a reason to blog, even though she doesn't have any time. :-))

Elizabeth is never one to miss out on the action.

Momma: We're going to eat lunch soon.
E: I'm too hungry to wait!
M: Than eat an apple. ALL the apple!
E: And if I don't eat all the apple?
M: Then I will pinch your head off.
I then walk out to the garage to get wrapping paper. I'm followed by a little voice, which asks, "Really? You can get my whole head off? Because my bones are pretty strong, and it might be hard. And then what? What would happen to my head?"
I laughed, reassured her that her bones were indeed to strong for me to pinch off, and that her head would remain in place.
In other BIG news, we are going to a bowling birthday party today! I know. Such exciting things are too wonderful! At least they are when you're 2 and 4 and have never been bowling before. I hope to post some bowling pictures later today. I know, again with the excitement! It's huge!!

One of Benjamin's shoes. Yeah, just one!
My little, pink, notebook.
I also lost my mind, and my sanity. Don't' have a picture of those things, they tend to like to run and hide most of the time, so it's hard to capture them.
Also, while we were at Wal Mart, we broke a shopping cart. Maybe that's about when I lost my mind and sanity!
