More pics

My handsome hubby! Sporting the beard he grew for me. Looks sexy, doesn't he girls?!

Just ME!

New pic's of my little ones

Owen's learning how to roll around to get what he wants... like this ball!

My firstborn cutie, Padraic.

Good brothers.

Don't you just love this little face?!

He's just hangin' out!

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

"With the kids jingle belling and everyone telling you be of good cheer!"

Yep, it's the start of the Christmas season. I love this time of the year. We've already have a tree in our house, although it is only half decorated so far.

This year should be interesting... With a new baby in the house and a four, almost five year old making his list for Santa--"cause, you know Mommy, we've got to tell him what we want." Padraic was so cute! He wrote out a list himself of the things he'd like and the things he would like his family to have. He kept asking me "what does he [santa] have?" I told him that Santa has everything and anything. You can ask him for whatever you want, but remember that you can't have EVERYthing on your list, maybe just a few things.

And that's the rub this year. Our budget is very small. I have to remember myself not to get everything on the "list". I will need to be choosy in my gift giving AND gift asking. No matter, we'll still have lots of fun.

And I am happy, since I am throwing another Christmas tea party for my closest friends in a week. I've been planning for it, and cleaning my house for it, for weeks now. I've got the menu made and tomorrow I will start baking, actually candy-making, for it. I really enjoyed the party I did last year and it's really the only time I have people over to my home. I have always thought of my place as too small to have people over--it's just a 2 bedroom, about 900 sqft or so. But 12 ladies fit in very nicely last year, so now I am okay with inviting people over.

Anyhow, Merry Christmas all! I hope your holiday plans are enjoyable and stress-free.
