A Thursday morning!

Good Thursday morning to you all... I feel like November and now December have just disappeared. We've been busy but with nothing in particular, just busy being us I guess! We FINALLY got our tree decorated (I decorated it). I just couldn't wait any longer, Mike works so much and is so busy it would just never have gotten decorated. So I pushed my "tradition" out of my head and just did it while the kids were napping.

Like I said, Mike has been working a lot. Right now he is working 6 days a week (per his boss). And it's taking a toll on Mike. I feel bad for him, but it's always like this during the holiday season. I mean he does work in retail, what would you expect! Poor guy is tired and missing us and we are missing him. Jared has 1 more week of school and then Christmas break. This past weekend I decided to use my 2 new Christmas presents that I got early (gps and truck) and took Anna and Jared to a couple of parks. We just picked a few off the list and drove there. So hopefully (weather permitting) I'll be taking 3 kids to the park while Jared is off school. Otherwise I think I might go crazy!!!!!!!!

Annalise is growing so much and has changed so much in the past month. She is trying to talk and making more noise. I am starting to understand what she wants through her grunts and am trying to help her with her words. It's so much fun and so amazing to watch her grow before my very eyes!

One more thing and I'm going to go. Jared and I have been having a difficult time for some time now... I haven't been able to figure out why, but it's tough. I'm tough on him and he's good at pushing my buttons. Last night my heart just broke and I just feel like we've lost each other. It seems the older he gets the harder it is for him and I to connect. He always gives me hugs and tells me that I'm the best mommy in the world... Well when it comes to him I don't feel like that. I'm gonna stew on this a little and will post more on it when I have more time!

Until then I'm gonna jet!
