Ethan was at the kitchen table playing with this play-do and gadgets and out of nowhere ask me this:
Ethan: Mom, does Ty have play-do?
Me: I am sure he does. Do you remember where he lives?
Ethan: Yes, in Hawaii
Me: Thats right, I can't believe you remembered that.
Ethan: Looking down with a sad face "I really miss him"
Doesn't that just break your heart!!!

If Gracie sees a blanket or a pillow on the floor she
automatically lays her head on it but I think she thought Gabrielle was the best choice.

Since we were home around Ethan's birthday and we knew we would probably never have the chance again, we decided to have his birthday there. This is the first birthday he got to share with them and he loved having his cousins there to play with. It was held at Putt-Putt so they all enjoyed miniature golf and games. We pigged out on pizza and cake, I forgot the ice cream. Normally, Eric reminds me! Ethan had a great time and was spoiled rotten.
heck I barely learned how to text last week.
Our 5th Wedding Anniversary too!

Eric and I have a little race going on and it is kicking my butt. Whoever reaches their desired weight/body tone wins the grand prize money. It first was whoever wins picks the vacation spot but seeing how we both agreed on that one, we changed it to cold hard cash. I would like to buy a new wardrobe for our vacation and Eric being so predictable chose a gun. It is kind of like Biggest Loser. However, the problem I am facing is that I don’t want to lose anymore weight, I know how weird that sounds but I like the weight I am at and it is around the weight I was in high school. But, as we all know after two kids, the weight has redistributed itself in places that it was never there. Therefore, my issue is more with toning than building muscle. I run about 2 1/2 miles and walk 1 mile MWF and then on T-TH I head on over to the YMCA for an hour and do core strength training at night. Knowing how competitive Eric is, he is going all out. I could care less about the prize but just finally beating Eric at something other than Rummy would make it all worth it. I have always said that baby weight should be left in the boobs. Don’t you think after putting us through the 9 months plus birth God could have at least left us with the extra lbs. in our boobs instead of on our butts and mid section? Heck, Eric and I would of both made out on that deal. Well wish me luck, I got till mid April.

Yes, we have finally made it back home! I knew we were going to be gone for awhile and was planning on updating the blog but it kept being pushed aside because we were too busy having fun with our family. Of course, we had a great Christmas and New Year. Ethan and Gracie had fun playing with all of their cousins and hanging out with their grandparents and great grandparents. We spent Christmas Eve with my family and enjoyed our annual seafood dinner, and then we spent Christmas morning with Eric’s family and enjoyed Belgian Waffles. If you know me, you know my passion for food and eating!!! Needless to say the kids were spoiled rotten and in the words of Ethan after me telling him no, “Where’s Grandma?” Yes, my child has realized the power of grandparents. Now my other child, Gracie, decided that she was going to jump back in time and wake up between 2-3 times a night. At first she would just want to play, then after getting too tired she wanted me to hold her all night long. Once I realized she was making a habit out of it we decided that it was best to come home early. Last night was our first night being back and I was worried that she was going to continue with the torture but she slept perfectly fine all night. When I went to put her to sleep she sat up looked around her room, laid back down rolled over and was out! In fact we all must have missed our house and beds because everyone crashed out really fast. We hope everyone had a great Christmas!
The flash cut out most of the lights out but trust me it lights up the block.
