Only in Dreams

I'm sitting in my house at 3:15 in the afternoon listening to the Sound of Silence. Rob is at Ikea and I am at home with three, yes I said THREE sleeping children. It's a miracle, people...a Festivus Miracle.

Very Merry

We had a wonderful Christmas filled with presents, family, food, and fun. We all received fantastic gifts, and I even made my VERY first cinnamon rolls (I've always liked the store-bought rolls better than homemade - call me crazy). A big thanks to everyone that sent in presents from out of state. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

I have always been the homesick type. ALWAYS. I can't even begin to count the number of times I called my parents from sleepovers asking them to come and pick me up. It's a triat that I'm sure most of you would not see coming from me, but it's the truth. As I've gotten older the immediate need to see my family has subsided, but there are certain times of the year that being away from them is almost unbearable. Christmas is one of them. Our family had AMAZING Christmases together, and even as an adult I miss them like crazy. I get choked up so easily while making Christmas cookies, decorating the tree, and listening to all the family-favorite Christmas songs. It is for that reason that I have changed my music playlist (only for a couple of days) to play one of my most cherished Christmas-memory songs. It is the theme from the movie, "The Snowman," and my dad and I used to play the duet on the piano every Christmas. Merry Christmas, family!

These are some pictures of the last Christmas I spent with my family...I can't believe it has been THREE YEARS!

We decorated our tree last night, which has always been one of my favorite family traditions. We have to keep it pretty sparse due to little hands, but it was still a lot of fun. Maddie had a gay old time, while Jude spent the evening in teething/tired/new baby/limited cookies hysterics. Christmas has officially begun at the Wilson home.

Two Weeks

I'll try not to over-post about my new little girl - but remember...most of my family hasn't seen her yet. So the rest of you will have to bear with me as I keep them updated with pictures. The scratch is all new as of last night. Good one.
