There's not much happening here. Tonight we're supposed to be getting tons of ice and snow, SO we'll see. It has pretty much put our entire town into a frenzy! I couldn't find parking at kroger so I had to go to Walmart, they've closed college classes for tonight AND tomorrow already! And we didn't have basketball practice tonight either! Crazy stuff! And nothing's even happened yet! It has rained some, but nothing to be making people canceling stuff!

We're just sitting by a nice cozy fire and doing a lot of nothing! Now if it does happen to be yucky tomorrow we'll be baking some applesauce cake and be lazy ALL day!

Tough Losses...

Last night Xavier had a sleepover for his birthday. We always wait until January, b/c in December over Christmas break, no one ever comes to his parties! We had three extra boys with us, and my parents took Naia and Paxton to the hotel to stay for the night! They had a blast! We took the boys to see Alvin & the Chimpmunks the Sqeakquel. It was funny! It was even funnier to watch the boys' reactions to the funny parts of the movie. They were all so well behaved, which was nice!

I did make them go to bed at 11:30 knowing they'd play quietly at least another hour. They did, but it went great!

Today we had our weekly Upward basketball game. We played the team in which Xavier's best friend is on. JS also spent the night with us last night! We lost. We lost bad. According to some, we had a bad ref, but I'm not really going to say that. I think we just got schooled.....Anyways, Xavier's a terrible loser. I mean really, who wants to lose?! But it hurts just a little more when your best friend wins! It was definitely a tough loss. BUT it was a humbling day for Xavier who is a little sure of himself!

Rocket Men 3-2-1 Blastoff!

I was going to save this for Wordless Wednesday, but just couldn't wait to get it posted! Xavier got a rocket for Christmas and these are a sequence of the event of launching it!

I know that most women has a couple of ladies that they could call their "best friend". I've not had that in a LONG time. The last couple of years ago I really started missing it. Not having a confidant, someone to just call and chitchat with. Someone that I could just say hey, I'm coming over...and we could hang out. This week I'm missing it even more. I made my first new years resolution probably ever earlier this year and it was to be a better friend. This week, I've started praying for a friend. Someone that calls me, someone that I can call, someone to talk to, to hang out with...etc. I don't know who all reads this, I don't care enough I guess, to put on a ticker to see. BUT this is not a call for sympathy. I've just felt myself being lonely lately and I'm putting on here, so that I know it's out there that I AM doing something about it! Don't get me wrong...Brent and I have lots of friendships, just not that one person that I'd call a best friend. So if I'm friends with you in real person, this isn't a dig at you! You're all great. I just need and miss real, deep, meaningful friendship. I find myself being envious of certain ladies that I see that have that connection with another person. Someone they share things with, that they pray with, spend time with. I want that too.

10 Years Together

Since I still don't know how to download pictures from the new camera, this will have to do.

Something very similar to this arrived this afternoon at our house! Isn't it beautiful?! Brent sent me flowers to commemorate 10 years of our first date. I thought about it this past weekend, but gave no thought to it yesterday when he suprised me with a night out with him to see a movie and then today a phone call from the florist with a delivery! I honestly had no idea why he was sending me flowers! They are beautiful though and it's been an amazing 10 years! I love you honey!

Sorry for the lack of posting. We are still going without full nights of sleep due to Mr. Paxton's lack of cooperation. We've tried everything to get him to sleep at night and right now, he's sleeping on his crib mattress in the floor b/c he won't stay in his crib. We're letting him cry it out at night, which was awful at first, but he's really doing better about sleeping, SO I'm getting over the guilt of leaving him in there crying and screaming!

Tomorrow starts our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading season! No free Saturdays until March for us! Naia has a game in the mornings and Xavier has a game in the afternoons! We'll have time each week to run home and grab some lunch and head back out!

These pictures were taken with Santa at the Dillon Christmas Party!

Happy New Year

We didn't do anything spectacular last night at all. Brent's on nights this week, I put the kids all to bed before 8 and watched Julie and Julia. Cute movie. Not really what I expected, but cute. I'm not a huge Meryl Streep fan, but I thought she did great, and I just couldn't get over Amy Adams ugly hair! Oh well...

We are almost done with Paxton's paperwork. All we have left to do is file for his citizenship. We got his SS card in the mail this week! After all the trouble I went through to get it, I'm so glad to have that in my possession!

Have a great last weekend before school starts again!
