Catching Up

Hello Blog world,
I have missed you so!!
I know I have been gone a long time, but I have been a bit busier than I anticipated. I have been trying to read all my favorite blogs, but have not been able to post many comments as I often don't have a free hand. For now, I will just try to catch up on everything going ALL the way back to Christmas (funny how it seems so long ago). I will try not to bore you to death with too many details.

We celebrated Christmas morning at home enjoying all of Santa's goodies and the snow outside.

Then we spent the afternoon at the MIL's house. For the first time in over a decade all of Mark's siblings were together for the holiday. Pictured here are my 3 boys their cousins Sydney, Madison, and Carson.

Then the day after Christmas, the boys and I headed to Memphis to spend a week with my family. We had Christmas again. This is POPS and Colton playing with a new toy.

We also celebrated Colton's 2nd birthday there. Not only did this bad mommy not give him his own party here at home with kids but he is not even getting his own post! I will so not be winning the MOTY award again this year!

We have already made 1 trip to Chuck E Cheese in 2010

I actually got in a picture (thanks Casey for the new rule).
That is baby Christian all covered up there in the snuggly on my chest. The bad thing about those, they kill your back. The good don't have to suck in your baby fat gut!

We have showered a few times.
The only way I get one these days is with a kid it seems.

We've made brownies (a couple of times) and I think I have eaten the entire freaking pan.
No wonder I have to wear the snuggly!

Colton looks like a little mexican with his chocolate mustache

We kept these boxes out for over a week until they were completely torn up. The boys stayed very entertained. And to think we just spent all that money on toys and a box is what worked best.

We layed around some

And some more laying, but be careful not to sleep!!

We played doctor (and went to the doc a few times already-Ok just once, but it was an all day event)

We've cried some, but as long as it's not sleeping it's all good!

We've posed for a few pictures

It may look like hugs, but it was really just the start of a great tackle

We, obviously, have NOT fed the dogs. WTH, can they not even wait for the kid to get down?

We've washed dishes, in the nude. Good thing I wasn't in that picture HA!
Now we are all caught up. Maybe I can get back in the swing of things and stay on top of my posts and readings. However I make no promises!! I have 3 boys now (and that is the excuse I use for EVERYTHING these days)!

Loved this post. Great update. The picture of you and the 3 boys is darling. Reminds me of my days when I LIVED in the baby bjorn. Or, Lainey did. Now, I want to put Batman in one b/c I miss it so much. He's not interested.
