Here we go

So in my head I already posted about Christmas in Texas but apparently I will go back and do that one. As I do not have my pictures from that on this computer. However since coming back from Texas we have been pretty busy. Max got into Headstart and started last week. Calvin is starting to talk more. Holly rolled over for the first time and Emily is starting to act more and more grown up it is weird sometimes to realize that she will be 7 in March.

Since being home from Texas are heat broke. We 2 different companies blaming each other for it breaking so we dressed warm and borrowed space heaters. Now we have heat and I am so grateful.
Holly dressed up warm

Sometimes when you are having a bad day your husband knows it and bring this home.

We have also been having some fun enjoying some Christmas presents. Aunt April gave us stuff to decorate cupcakes with. Aunt Jeanine gave us popcorn microwave maker. Both have been and delicious. 

I have been trying to figure for weeks who gave Holly 2 beautiful dresses. Turns out it is my awesome Aunt Lori. Thank you doesn't she look adorable. 

Last Sunday we hung with Uncle Jon and Aunt Pam. My kids love Jon because he is willing to do anything like crawl in the baby toy. They love Aunt Pam because she has an awesome truck. 

Holly is starting to get stronger. She rolled over twice the other day. Since then not at all. However she refused to do it on camera to make it worse Calvin was my only other witness.

Already for Church

Snow in December

We had our first snowfall last weekend it was fun to play in. I just wish more would have stuck. It snowed all day but only an inch of accumulation. I love that my midseason enjoy snow as much as me. 

Sickness and santa

We have had a lot of throw up at our house this week. Started with Emily went through Calvin, me, then Max. Now we have a cold too being sick is no fun. We had a first experience though we were at Jason's boss's house max was not feeling well and lied down in one of their beds and threw up everywhere I don't think our kids will be invited to the party next year.
In other news I took the 2 olders to breakfast with Santa it was fun they even made a craft. I tried to convince Emily to get the chocolate muffin but she had to he fancy and picked the pumpkin streussal. Max picked a glazed donut. Also last Saturday their aunt took them on the Santa train where the commuter train takes kids for an hour ride and Santa walks through the train and talks to kid the kids.

Baby holly

Holly Brown was born September 18, 2017. She was 9lbs 12oz and 21in tall. She came at 5ish. I was in labor for over 24 hours. I was super scared that when I went into labor that the doctor I did not like would be on call. Well when I showed up guess who was. Well I started to cry the nurses were very supportive and told me what I needed to do in order to avoid her cutting me open. I listened to their advise all night. When the doctor switched the next morning my nurse (brought me food she was amazing) then talked to Dr Patel in letting me get petition after the other doctor said no.  Later after being on protein they broke my water ten minutes later with an epidural we had Holly. The doctor that delivered has to leave cause it was at the end of her shift so Dr Patel delivered my placenta. I am so grateful for all that the nurses did for me and keeping me going and strong. I am happy I delivered at mary washington hospital.i

Brothers and friends

Driving a pumpkin car
Max and calvin are starting to play together more. It has been fun to watch their friendship develop. Do not get me wrong Calvin is still mean and actually walks up and hits bites or kicks him for no reason. However he wil say sorry and then play. Also calvin is in a toddler bed so they are both awake early and get some brotherly bonding. Emily is jealous that they share a room. 

Holly has them addicted to snapchat

Halloween costumes minus Calvin. I apparently missed his picture. He was a dragon. It was fun they went three times. Max was a pirate, Emily little mermaids holly skeleton.

Finishing School

Max graduated Grammy school, and he will not be attending any preschool this year he is going to be stuck with Mom (poor kid). It was a cute ceremony they sang songs, did a play, and received their diploma. Max was very proud of how hard her worked all year.

Emily finished up Kindergarten I am amazed at how much she learned. She received an award from her teacher as a role model ( GO EMILY). They handed them out during a musical performance where they sang cute songs. I was with Calvin and the place was packed with people so no video sorry. My favorite part was that she asked to wear her heels. I told her because we walked she would have to change her shoes when we got there. Guess who forgot to change her shoes. Needless she performed in Crocs.
