This and that!

Hello good afternoon! Wow it seems the only time I have TIME is when the kids finally take their naps... Which has been about 11 o'clock and I've gotten (knock on wood) them both into that routine. I've been trying to only give Annalise 1 nap and so far so good, but in the evening around 6pm we are super whinny. And by we I mean Anna!

Last night was a tough night for me... I mean this morning. 3:30 am the little brat (I mean angel) got up and would not go back to sleep. I just laid next to her and tried to sleep but lightly so I could keep a closed eye on her. However hard I tried I fell asleep at 5:30am to a still awake baby who then fell off the bed. OOPS! She freaked, as she should have. Mike who was in sleeping with Jared (don't ask) came in and held her and rocked her and then we all fell asleep. I don't know what it is about Annalise and nighttime sleeping, but it doesn't seem to happen for long and very soundly. She tosses and turns and honestly drives me insane. I really hope that it's only because of the 4 teeth she is getting at the same time on top. Yes you heard right 4 flipping teeth at once.

So you might be wondering how everything is going around here... Well to be honest they are going pretty well. It's taken a while to get all settled and we still have some settling to do... but we are good. I feel at peace with our decision. I do miss my family and friends up north, but we'll be making a trip up north soon. Our house is 1 story which I'm very thankful for, it seems so much easier to keep track of Anna. It's in a cute little neighborhood and we TRY to take a walk every night. Oh and I cannot believe that I forgot to share this awesome news. Mike got a new job at Cabelas!!! I am so very proud of him. He is finally getting the things he deserves and it's taken a long time of crap for him to finally get it. He got the job and great pay with good benefits we hope. I will keep you all posted!

As far as pictures. Well my camera is full and I have to find a way to get them on a disk (I cannot on my computer), but I will load up some pics of the house and the kids soon! Ok off to finish up some of my chores while the kiddo's sleep!
