O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!

So we went up to the mountains to get our tree this year. We had a great time after we proceeded to get stuck in the snow and had to abandon our car! Not a big deal though. There were lots of people there to help us out. Here is the finished product...
We are working with Lucy to make sure she is gentle with the ornaments and so far she is doing really well!

Short Week!

Yeah for the short week! We only have to get to Wednesday and then we are off for Thanksgiving Break. It is a well deserved break. Plans for this week are going to include Brian's family for Thanksgiving, Friday shopping with mom and Elizabeth followed by hanging out with my family, Saturday heading up to the mountains to get our Christmas tree and hopefully play in the snow! It is going to be a great break!

Okay so you would think that taking Independent Living (Home Ec) would be an easy class to get an A in. I guess not!! It kills me that I have students who wait until the very last minute to turn in their assignments, and in turn they turn in work that is crappy and doesn't even pass. We are at the point where we are cooking every week and the one criteria that I have is that they cannot have any missing work or incomplete work out. Out of my five classes the most students that I have eligible to cook in their labs this week is 10! Out of 30 that is horrible!! What is with kids these days? They just don't care about their grades and passing classes! Sorry for the venting session!!

So I haven't actually done any updating on here lately. So far the second little girl is cooking good! Lot's of movement which unfortunately is on my bladder. That works out well during school! Lucy is growing like a weed and learning so many new words. Lately we have been seeing some terrible two temper tantrums come up, but they are always random. We are still working on selling the house and looking for a bigger one. The house has been on the market for a month so we are not worried about the time-line. Other than that we are pretty boring. Lucy is our entertainment for the most part and you can imagine how entertaining that really is!!

Cute kid!

What else can I say, she's a cute kid!

Silly girl!

So one of Lucy's favorite things to do is to get into our pack-n-play and either jump or smash her face into the sides.

So we are officially the sick family. Brian is fighting a cough and stomach problems, Lucy is fighting a cough, a runny nose, and of course the crankiness of a toddler, and mommy is fighting a cough, runny nose, and a pregnancy! It is at this point where I want to crawl in bed and sleep forever!!
