A quick ramble over coffee

Our Christmas weekend was wonderful but, I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I should have. Judah loved opening his presents and he is entertained this morning playing with his new toys, specifically his new tractor that I found at the Farmer Supply store. We spent good time with Jeremiah's family on Christmas Eve. Christmas morning, we did Christmas at home, just as a family and I baked the Pioneer Woman's Cinnamon Rolls for us. Delicious!

Christmas afternoon we went over to my sister's house and did Christmas with all of my family. I learned that as much fun as Christmas is for little people, it can also be a little challenging for them. Having to share toys, being away from home during naptime, lots of people, sugar, oh my! I think Judah did really well though and I know he had fun.

Yesterday morning we stayed home from church and just stayed in our PJ's. I started sorting through old toys and organizing Judah and Paisley's rooms. I don't like when there's stuff that needs to be put away and things that need a "home" so, I started working on cleaning our house up from Christmas. I pulled the bassinet out of Paisley's room and had Jeremiah put it in the garage. It's SAD to have the bassinet back in the garage. It means that our Baby #2 is already getting bigger. Paisley now sleeps in her crib and not in the bassinet in her room. She is getting older and the bassinet is back in storage for when we have another tiny baby (not anytime soon!).

Yesterday afternoon I headed out to snag some Christmas decorations that are on clearance. I love having a few new things to put on the tree each year but, I don't love full price so, I go out after Christmas and see what I can find for at least 50% off. I found a few fun things and then I headed home because it was windy and cold and I had Paisley with me.

This morning I woke up not feeling well. I think all the late nights that I pulled getting ready for Christmas are catching up with me. I don't want to be sick. I feel like I have a lot to do. Our house seems messy to me from all the Christmas stuff. I go to see the midwife today for my 6 week postpartum appointment, even though it's been 9 weeks. I don't like that I have to get weighed after the Christmas weekend because I ate WAY too many sweets. I'm ready to get really serious about loosing this dang baby weight.

I'm looking forward to taking all the Christmas stuff down and starting a new year. I think 2011 is going to be a great year. I'm thinking about my "resolutions". Do you have any New Year's Resolutions?


  1. I'm sorry you're not feeling so well Angela. I hope you get better soon with a little "post-Christmas rest".
    Love reading about your Christmas, and I'm so glad you had a good one! The Cinnamon Rolls look delicious! (We also had cinnamon rolls, but it was the "cheater-version", out of the package). Judah looks adorable, napping in the car with the tractor in hand!! :) It seems you hit "the" perfect present for him... I love it when that happens!
    I have a New Year's Resolution for the two of us: Get together soon!! :) I'd love to see you and catch up!!

  2. There were only a handful of people at church. A lot of people were likely doing the same thing you were, recuperating! I already got my Christmas decorations down and put away. I must have said half a dozen times to my hubby, "I am SO glad I have my living room back!"

    Sounds like your Christmas was simply wonderful!

  3. Hi Angela ~~
    Thank you for sharing right from your heart on your blog. It is so nice to read your transparent honest comments about LIFE!
    I am glad that these first days on 2011 are sunny. That is a special gift.
    Happy New Year, with LOVE, Mom


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
