I'm thankful today for the beautiful weather we had. We had to take Collin in for his routine blood work and because our doctor's office is only about 6 blocks away, we left early and walked to the park to play before going to the doctor. If only all of winter could be this mild.

On Christmas morning Collin got a new table and chairs from Santa that he LOVES! He opened it first, and the rest of the presents had to come to him at the table because he refused to leave.
The next 2 pictures were just too cute to leave out...
This is Collin super excited about the new toy chest that Papa (my dad) just finished making for him.
And this is Collin modeling his new monkey pajamas.

Maybe it's my adorable toddler that keeps these things from happening... Sometimes picking up toys just seems pointless, but you gotta love him!
I did accomplish some things however. Such as scrubbing the kitchen with a toothbrush. Not the entire kitchen, I'm not superwoman! I also cleaned out my large yarn collection. I was sad to see how many unfinished projects I had. My yarn wouldn't be taking up so much space if I would finish something once in a while. So in the course of cleaning up this mess Collin decided to take up crocheting as well. I think he has a lot of potential.
So after dinner in the evenings Dan and I take turns with who cleans the kitchen and who gives Collin a bath. I love giving Collin baths but sometimes listening to Dan give Collin a bath is even more fun. I can't explain how heartwarming it is to listen to the two of them in there laughing and playing and singing songs. Tonight I had to sneak in and get some pictures of the fun.
Only 1 more week of school and then we get a full 2 weeks to fully enjoy such moments.

He's also pretty cute when he is trying to smuggle mint M&M's in his cookie jar. Exactly what you should do after a good workout. He is just like his mommy!

1. I get to spend more time with my sweet little boy and wonderful husband (even though wrestling tournaments start next weekend meaning our time together is drastically shortened.
2. I only have 1 kid to chase around (soon to be 2) and not 24.
3. I can take time to plan and prepare dinner, and actually enjoy doing it.
4. Date night with my hubby - this weekend will probably be the last until wrestling is over.
5. I can stay up past 9:00 and not regret it the next day.
Okay, time for a baby update. We had a doctors appt yesterday and everything is good. We got to drink some sweet "flat sprite" to have a glucose test done, and I got to hear Ronan's sweet heartbeat again. Much like Collin, he doesn't like having the doplar on him. However, instead of moving away from it, he chose to attempt to push it away. What can I say, my baby's a genius already. We're at 27 1/2 weeks right now which means that we now have to start going to the doctor every 2 weeks. This doesn't really seem necessary to me, so I think I'm gonna try to push it to at least 3 weeks. Though I love being able to get away from school, it's not always easy.

We spent our morning out doing some Christmas shopping, and making a registry for baby #2. I wouldn't have made a registry for the 2nd baby, except for the fact that my wonderful brother-in law wants to buy us baby stuff for Christmas. We figured giving him some choices for the furniture was best. Anyhow, we attempted to do some shopping yesterday, Black Friday, but the line at Kohl's was wrapped around the store. Waiting in line for an hour with a toddler was not appealing. However, today the store was much less than crowded and the prices were still just as good. We were able to find the towels we wanted for Collin, along with a few other things. I probably would have bought more had Dan not been there to control me!
As for the rest of the day.... being lazy, and then a quick visit to the grandparents' house. Yay for long weekends!
