A Story to Remember

So the other day I was taking the kids to their Nena and Papa's house for a little quality time. We are in the car and almost to their neighborhood when Elliot says...

"Momma, remember when we were in your tummy and you said 'oh I hope its a boy and a girl' and then you saw us and said 'oh they are just precious' and then you brought us home. Remember that? That was a good day!"

Cute right? Well until she followed up with this question..."So momma, how did we get in your belly anyway?"

I am not ready for that discussion yet so I just said "Well, God put you there like he did with baby Jesus and Mary." Luckily she's only 4 and that satisfied her for now...only we are worried she is going to wonder where they wise men and shepherds are when they don't come for their next birthday!

Just had to be sure and blog that one because we will want to mix that into the Christmas story one of these days!

I've Missed You Blog...

Yep...I've just missed it too much. Sure I like my evenings "free" and not cramming in a last minute post at midnight, but I feel like I am truly missing some things as the kids are growing up way too fast! Elliot completely talks like an 18 yr old but luckily Keaton still says some things that are so cute. Like "Teaton" and "Pleash".

I want to remember what all happened and how I coped. I think that's why the three's got a lot less face time...I was just too tired and too frazzled. But I know one day I will regret not blogging about fits and fights and spills and toilets clogged with trains and animals...

So, I may only blog a sentence or a quote but I plan on being back. FOR REAL THIS TIME!!! I don't want to miss another day of this adventure that "one day I will laugh about"...or so everyone tells me.

*I type this as Keaton tries to turn my face to him and convince me that he needs to sleep in my bed! Last night he cried not wanting to go to bed. He begged me to sleep in his bed. Then he asked for daddy to sleep in his bed. Then he cried and said "I just want somebody to spend the night with me! Where is my Grammy?!"

Master manipulators these two are!

Here's a new family pic and sneak peek of our xmas card.... Maybe one day I'll sit and post all the ones I haven't had a chance to.
