Hey everyone :). Just a quick random Life Update video - not a whole lot to report on at the moment - it's been a matter of one day at a time. I have people e-mailing and commenting asking how things are and if we're all doing OK if I go too long between Life Update videos though (which I thank you all for your concern - the support and kindness is VERY much appreciated!!) so here's the latest:
Hey everyone! Total non-stamping related post for today - I get a lot of people asking when I'll post another Life Update video, asking how things are going, etc etc etc. I don't know when I'll do another Life Update video as of right now - it's more the timing and having a LOT on my plate right now than anything.
However on Monday I hauled all 4 kiddo's to the city for a grocery run. I am still impressed with myself that I managed to fit all 4 of them in the car and not only survive Costco at Christmastime (why that place turns into chaos and brings out the worst in people at this time of year I'll never know LOL!), but I managed to fit everything in the trunk of my car along with a double stroller - THAT was an interesting feat LOL! I literally was hanging halfway out of the trunk trying to arrange everything to fit with a lineup of cars behind me waiting to take my parking spot. I had to take apart my stroller just to make it all fit (or else have to go back in and return the toilet paper lolol) but I made it work. I'm sure the people waiting for my spot had some entertainment watching me tetris it all in there (total life skill playing that game on the Nintendo when I was little - I knew someday it would come in handy!).
Anywho - after surviving that I took the kids to the mall for a treat at Starbucks (they love it as much as I do - but we only go as a treat every once in a while - I just have to keep a close watch on K when we get anything from there b/c any unattended cup gets demolished by her and too much sugar/caffeine for a 2 year old and well.....y'all can imagine), and after we went and got pics with Santa. I didn't plan it out ahead of time (outfits and all that jazz - I was just hoping to make it to the city and back in one piece with my sanity intact) plus it's always a hit and a miss as the lineups can be insane for this one. He's the BEST Santa - no fake beard here:
Katelyn was having NOTHING to do with Santa this year - she took one look at him and headed the other way. The only way to get her in the picture was to be in it myself and hold her on my lap - even then she wasn't impressed. Gavin LOVED Santa (doesn't look like it in the pic but the cameraman kept shaking bells to try and cheer up K and Gavin's expression pretty much speaks as to how he felt about that LOL), and couldn't resist grabbing onto his beard after - so wish I had pics of that! Oh well - Merry Christmas from me and my munchkins!
I'll be back soon with another card - maybe a video too - we'll see! ;) :)
