Sunday, December 23, 2007

Yesterday we stayed home all day because of the snow. The original plan was for James to finish up shopping yesterday and we would clean the house today. The days just got switched.
I almost have all of the laundry done. I got James' gifts wrapped and put under the tree. James finished shopping and there are just a couple of things left to finish cleaning in the house. A very productive day.
Nolan and I danced like maniacs while James was gone. He caught us when he got home. I am sure it was quite the site to see.
We went out to eat at Cici's tonight, then went to look at some Christmas lights on St. Pual. It was worth it. All the snow on the ground and it was a huge light display.
Oh yeah, we got up this morning and went out in the snow! Last year was the first time Nolan got to play in the snow and he didn't think to much of it. Well, today he had a blast! He was climbing the snow drifts and jumping in the huge piles of snow. James hated it. Mostly because he was shoveling the driveway. Man, he tackled me. We haven't played in the snow like that since 1999 when we had our first place. It was so nice just to let loose and have some fun. The weather was perfect. Not to cold and the wind wasn't blowing. Weird, seeming as if we live in Kansas.
Well that's all folks. Gotta go put the little on to bed!

Busy weekend

Wow, we got a lot done this weekend. On Saturday, we took Nolan to get fitted for his tux. Then we walked around the mall a little. It was so much fun b/c it was snowing outside and really made it feel like Christmas.
We decided to pick-up lunch at the mall. James and Nolan got in line at the chinese food, and I went to get a pretzel. Came back and Nolan had told James, "Are you fucking kidding me" when he had to get into another long line. I think he had a great time b/c he got to ride the carousel. That is something he doesn't get to do very often.
After that, we took Nolan to get his hair cut and came home. With no nap, it was about time for his time out amongst the public to end.
Sunday I did tons of laundry. Literally, tons. I caulked my bathroom tub and make 3 different types of cookies. All of the cookies are egg free so Nolan can eat them. Chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate chip and sugar cookies were baking in my kitchen. I mixed up gingerbread dough, but haven't made those yet.
I got my Christmas cards mailed out today. I addressed them to get ready for the Monday mail. I decided I wasn't going to make them this year. I was just to busy working full time and everything.
Took Nolan to Taco Bell and to look at some Christmas lights tonight. He is so tired, so we made a short night of it for him.
Not much going on today. I have to work 10 hour days to get Friday off. Kinda worth it because I will have a five day weekend. Awesome!
Well, that's all for tonight.

Yesterday was an alright kinda day. I went to work and left about 30 minutes late. I was helping my boss get a quote done. Then I went to pick up Nolan at Grandma's. They weren't there. Grrr. I needed to go to the doctor, so mom said she would bring him home. Went to the doctor, the cyst is pretty much gone. Yeah! Nolan's has a rash for his allergies his doctor said. Big surprise. lol. So, cream it is since we don't know what it is caused from. Then she told us what to do about him being such a picky eater. He eats what we eat. If he doesn't eat, then fine. The next time he says he's hungry, he gets his dinner. We will see how that works.
After we all got home, we went to the Y to go swimming. Had lots of fun. Nolan loves to swim. We left there about 6 and went to Pizza Hut. We were getting carryout and it took over 40 minutes for our pizza. That is a long time for a 3 year old who is starving. Came home, ate, then watched Shrek the Halls. Pretty cute.
Nolan went to bed without a hitch. That hasn't happened in a long time. I went to bed around 11 and James fell asleep on the couch. Nolan woke up around 7-730. Now I am doing laundry and Nolan is screaming at me because he wants to paint.
More later.
