Back to life, back to reality....

I am in depression right now. We got back yesterday from Montana. We had such a good time and it was so fun to be with everyone, play fun games and eat yummy food. Today was a reality check. Back to the dishes, laundry, cooking, general cleaning and school. I was happy though Ryley slept in until 7:45 today and Kirye until 8:15. Then they each took 2 hour naps this afternoon! Hooray! Back on schedule.

I am sad that Ryley was so mean to her cousin, Reagan, while we were there. I was hoping they would have had more fun playing together. I've noticed Ryley does not do well with kids her own age, but she does well with older or younger kids. We are working on her "hitting" issues. It all started when Kirye came along and now it has gotten worse. Sorry Reagan!

My favorite Christmas presents are:
My new running shoes. They are so light and comfortable and are awesome to run in!
My digital kitchen scale. I opened it yesterday and tried it out on all sorts of things. I had an apple that was 6 oz. and I cooked some hamburger that was 11 oz. I just LOVE how accurate it is! Seriously, it is so cool!
My pampered chef chopper. Yes! No more chopping smelly onions by hand.
And last, my mother in law gave me the cutest Coach purse. It is a small pink purse that is just so perfect for me. She always knows exactly what I like!

Ryley's favorite presents are her books and her tricycle. When she isn't reading her books, she is on her bike. There isn't much room for her to ride around the house though. It will be nice when the snow melts and the weather is nice enough for us to go outside where she can have a lot more room.

Kirye's favorite presents were his diapers and his warm fuzzy sweat suit from Grandma and Grandpa!

I hope everyone is looking forward to the new year! I know I am!

P.S. I found out over Christmas my sister is pregnant with her 2nd child! Yeah! She is due in June...almost 3 years apart from her daughter. I thought that was good timing. I think if Scott and I have another child, it would be good to have them about 3 years apart.

Coming back to reality sometimes really sucks, but sounds like you had a pretty good holiday overall! Minus the Reagan experience, of course. Hopefully the hitting will phase out.

I hate coming back to reality. That's why I'm leaving again this week:) I got new running shoes too! I LOVE my pampered chef chopper - we call it the whopper chopper because it's got such power.

I agree....The Pampered Chef chopper is the BOMB!
