Do I still have a blog???

Yes, I am still here and am so far behind on this blog.  See I have two kiddos now who demand nearly constant attention, and I'm getting ready to move, and there was a major holiday for which I attempted to make several projects for both home and gifts, so I have been B-U-S-Y!  I'm only here now because baby girl is being little miss insomniac and I'm waiting for her to get good and asleep before I turn in myself.

Christmas was good, we were here at home just us.  We went to Mass on Christmas Eve and both kids were extremely well behaved which was such a gift in and of itself.  We came home and let Austin open one gift which I think will be our tradition from now on, that we will each get new pajamas that are to be opened on Christmas Eve to be worn for the night. Austin had a blast this year and it was really fun to watch him enjoy the whole process.  We tried to feed Katy cereal for the first time, but she wasn't too impressed.

We went sledding the Sunday before Christmas and had a blast.  We went to the Coral Pink Sand Dunes because they make fabulously smooth sledding runs.  We went for a while with just our family, then we met up with a group of friends.  They had a camp fire which was so nice to warm up by.  Great times were had by all!

We are heading back to Wyoming next week for our house hunting trip.  I am SO EXCITED to be there! It's going to be so hard to come back here for two more weeks after that.  I hope that we find an acceptable place, the market is tight there.  I have been looking into restaurants, the rec center, and other stuff to see while we are there and it is going to be a fun trip.  I am also trying to figure out how to select a Pediatrician too as both kids will be do for well child checks right after we move.  Here it was never an issue as we just went with who was available, but there are a lot to chose from there.  Hopefully the weather holds our for our drive.

We have started plans for Austin's fourth birthday bash.  We are doing it 10 days early this year since we are moving the week of his birthday.  We still don't know the exact date that the moving company is coming, but we are anticipating being here and that his last day at the Learning Center will be his actual birthday, so he can take cupcakes as birthday/going away.  We are hosting the party here at our house and going with a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme.  It will be fun to have all his buddies together one last time and give him a good send off.  I'm also hoping to pick up some of the supplies for the party next week while I am in Wyoming.

Well I think Miss Katy is good and out now, so I'm going to head to bed.  If I don't blog again before the new year I hope you have a fabulous day and a prosperous 2013!
