Good memories!

This weekend I was able to attend a wedding reception for Jen, who was one of my good friends in high school, and then we were also roommates in college. Some of my other "old" friends were there and it was great to sit and reminisce with them about all of the craziness in college. Even though I hadn't seen some of them in several years, it amazed me at how talking to them was just like it used to be. I was so lucky to have such good friends back then, and I just wish that we all lived closer so that we could hang out more now!

We miss Bubba!

Last week Bubba was in Florida for work, he came home Saturday night and then left Monday for Idaho. He gets back Saturday afternoon, and has to leave for Colorado on Monday and won't get back until next Thursday. After that he should be around more, but all of us miss him! We've all gotten used to having him around quite a bit over the last few months and this really isn't fun! Bubba is such a fun person to have around and the house is definitely less fun when he isn't here. The kids miss him too....alot! In the mornings I usually get Paris out of her crib when she wakes up and then we go in to wake up Daddy and she climbs all over him in bed. Every morning she still has been going in there and pulling on the covers and looking under them trying to find him. Savannah will randomly state throughout the day, "Daddy's at work" or "Daddy's sleeping." I wonder if she really thinks he's just been sleeping for the last week and a half...wouldn't be too much of a stretch since she knows how much he loves to sleep! Anyways, we've been trying to keep busy with errands and playgroups and hanging out with family, but we are ready for Daddy to be home. Our poor kids need a break from Mommy sometimes! And Mommy has a giant to-do list for Daddy that just keeps getting longer since he isn't ever here to work on it!
Sorry there are no pics this time, but our camera is dying and needs new batteries almost every time I turn it on so I haven't been taking many lately. I'm planning on getting a new camera this weekend and will start posting tons of pics as soon as I get it!

Christmas Vacation

This year we drove to Colorado to spend Christmas with the Maulers (Nellie's family). Here's some pics of the fun week that we had there. We got tons of snow on Christmas and Savannah got to go sledding for the first time and she loved playing out in the snow. We made gingerbread houses, the boys all played airsoft, we had a mystery dinner, and did all kinds of other fun things while we were there. The drive was not the most fun but we all survived and had a great time.

Savannah loved dressing up in snow pants and boots....kept her busy for a long time!
