I might just have to change the name this series. Because, it might be Friday, it might not be Friday. Maybe.
This week was pretty sickening, literally. Everyone at home was sick at some point during the week. There was a day or two were everyone in the house was sick at the same time. Luckily, my illness only lasted a day and a half, so I have recovered. The rest of the family is getting better.
We got an early surprise, yesterday, the real Friday. Xavier’s parent, brother, and cousin Todd, came into town to celebrate Christmas early with us. The girls are so excited and happy. And we are pretty psyched to have family during the holidays!! This means that we will have gumbo, turkey necks, and sweet potato pie in addition to our Noche Buena menu. YAS!
AND, shockingly we got some Christmas shopping in this week, this NEVER, EVER happens. YAY!
Week 15 Highlights:
This week was the girls’ last week of school before Winter Break. So not much was going on. Jaelan and Xavi were both sick at the beginning of the week, but have since recovered. Lots of fluids, salty soups, and vitamin c going on this week!
Convo with Jaelan:
Jaelan: Mama, I think that we evolved from monkeys.
Me: (GASP!) What!? Why!? So you don’t believe in GOD!? Why do you say that!!?
Jaelan: Oh, I believe in GOD and I think he is awesome and great, But I think we evolved from monkeys.
Me: Not acceptable! How can you believe in GOD and believe that we evolved from monkeys at the same time.
Jaelan: Oh, that’s easy, cause GOD created the monkeys.
I couldn’t decided if this was caused by school, television, the internet, social media, or what. SIGH.
More awesome news, Xavier and I finally coordinated our schedules so that Aspen will not have to go to day care!! YAY! She started home care this week! The big girls never set foot in day care and we felt kind of bad cause Aspen is having to, but it couldn’t be prevented as we have no family or help here in Kansas. So, now all is well, and Aspen will be cared for by her family 🙂
No fancy toddler smartassedness from Aspen this week because she has been sick and pretty not active. She is doing better as of yesterday though, so I am sure her antics will re-surface next week.
I am pretty excited for this year’s Christmas because Aspen is a little more aware. She keeps asking who are all of the, “pwesents”, for and she knows who, “Santa”, is now. We are not too big on Santa photos, so we didn’t really break our necks this year to get one in. Also, some pre-Christmas activities on the gallery this week.
