We Did It!

After two wonderful weeks of Christmas vacation, it was time to go back to work and the girls go to school. We have been dreading it for the last week. I really prepared myself knowing that this was going to be an awful day when we woke up. Chris has been in New Mexico hunting since Thursday so I had no help in getting the girls ready. In fact, I feel sure that Chris always plans to be gone when we go back to school in August and after or Christmas break. LOL!
Last night, I packed lunches, picked out clothes, picked up the house and had the girls in bed by 8:00. I was in bed by 10:00. I decided to get up extra early to deal with the crabby patties. I woke them up at 6:15. The shot out of bed, ran to the bar to eat powdered dounuts, got ready, made beds and played until it was time to leave. WOW! I wasn't sure if these girls were mine. The only negative thing that came out of Kyli's mouth was, "I hate school." Hopefully this will happen every single morning. It would make my mornings so much easier.

Nate's birthday is on January 5th. He will be 7. I love him so much! Too bad he doesn't love me like he used to. We celebrated his birthday last Friday. It was a lazy day and the kids ran around all day.

I don't think Nate even brushed his hair. The only candles we could find were a 3 and 4. Nate made a plus sign to =7

Kenna loves our bed. She ends up in it 5 out of 7 nights. She is smart to go to her daddy's side. I always take her back to her room.

Pray for great mornings all week!
Have a blessed week!
